Tough Love

I adore this vintage Laura Ashley dress that I inherited from my dear mother. I had it on with cowboy boots and a suede vest previously but it was just a tad bit too wench-like. Given the the choice, I will always go for a more biker-y look, so here it is paired with a Danier leather jacket I decided to destroy one day and turn into a vest, along with some random leather driving gloves. Hope you likee xox
