The Forbidden Fabric: suede

I feel like a teenager, lovestruck - but not with a boy. I'm having an awkward, forbidden love affair with suede this season.

I dream in suede. 

Suede dresses, trench coats, pants, shirts, shoes. You name it. The sad thing is, suede is expensive and SO hard to wear. 

It looks FABULOUS, but if I'm spending 1.3k on a pair of pants, it better be some bionic, indestructible shit, not something that will get ruined the 3rd time I wear it.

Forget what they tell you, the moment you sit for too long or wear it too much, suede becomes worn out. 

For example, my Proenza Schouler pants. I adore them. But as much as I love them, I can't wear them too often and definitely not to places where I sit for long periods of time. Of course, I CAN wear them, but they won't last me more than 3 months. 

So, there you have it. My hopeless obsession with suede this spring/summer and my battle to resist it. 

We shall see how this wears out ;) 

In the meantime, while I cry, check out my favorite suede pieces this season!
