I wore this purple-gray slip dress for a friend's wedding two years ago. I was inspired to pull it back out of the closet this year, when I started to see slip dresses popping up everywhere - in catalogs, street style photos, magazines. I especially like the idea of styling it with a leather jacket and booties, because there's something about combining a really feminine piece like silk or lace with a really masculine piece like leather that works so well in fashion. It's one of those style tricks I find myself coming back to again and again!
