DUDE.
Just got these leather tees from H&M that are probably the closest I'll ever get to the Celine leather shirts above...and I'm completely ok with that. It's super thin, soft leather on the front panel and sleeves and the back is a lightweight cotton poplin. It has sort of a cropped fit, which I hate, but I got it in the largest size so it's more boxy. I don't know if it's age or a rapidly developing hoarding tendency, but I find myself being greedy and buying things I like in multiple colors all at once. Or maybe I'm just picky and since it's hard for me to find things I love, when I do I have to make the most of it? I'm going to go with option #2, it sounds better.

Go run out to your nearest H&M and pick one up for yourself! Or two! Or three! - oh yeah there's a dark grey one too that I forgot to mention, but hey I'm mentioning it now. Or if you're a lazy ass like me here are the style numbers so you can call ahead and get a stock check before you waste gas driving out there. Gas is so expensive these days. I remember when it was 99¢ a gallon.....oh yeah, the style numbers...

H&M IF YOU CAN SEE THIS - COME TO SYDNEY.
Those are perfect, but I guess I'll just have to keep ebaying leather shirts (you find some really weird shit)until an H&M opens here.

Oh good to hear they're decent, I remember seeing them in a lookbook and making a mental note to check them out... Or get someone else to check them out for me, seeing as we don't have h&m here.
Tempted to make my own with some beautiful washed skins that I have but lets be honest, cbf.

I saw those the other day!! I want the black one, but I ended up getting some leather leggings/pants instead. real leath-uh +stretch and $200 smackers. I'm pleased.

kosmickate said...

SIGH.
We NEED an H&M in Singapore! ):

DUDE!!! OMG, saw them when I was in the store but thought the same thing - cropped and too tight (don't want my lovehandles showing). I ended up buying a wool-ish cardigan and angora sweater with horses on them. LOL. Maybe I'll give those Celine inspired tops another chance and try it on.

Incredible. I can't wait till H&M open their online store!

Nice. I have a shirt exactly like that which I bought on ebay, but it's way too cropped and there's no room to let the hem out. I also would love to make my own, but don't think I have the equipment... or the time... or enough ambition...

Anna G said...

Shit those are something I thought H&M wouldn't have. Those shirts are so epic. I hope they still have them when I go to Chicago.

i found this white vintage silky CHEMISE (the tag literally said that) at a local vint shop. when i took it home and tried it on it reminded me of those white dress shirts you had posted about a while ago! i will email you a link when i post it on my blog but i think it was an old fashioned sleep shirt originally :)

a few mos ago before i found your blog, i was having disconnection w the blogs i usually troll around in and then your blog was just instantly familiar to me! i didnt really think about why, but i love that you also are pickier about trends and dont jump on the bloggerette bandwagon (i used to atleast) immediately. when you revealed your age it instantly made sense (im a few years older).. it does come w age i think this shift in style and realizing hey, its really ok if i dont give a F*** haha

and yes i have to constantly stop myself from buying all colors if i find something works.. it could be general laziness or enjoying the idea of having a mini uniform...

btw i love your lighter hair!

Maria said...

Holy, these are actually super nice!

RAT PACK said...

Uggghhhh I saw those last time I was in H&M, but I just couldn't bring myself to shell out the cash. I had this half-baked notion that I could make one myself... since it hasn't happened yet, I might have to bite the bullet and buy one.

Luckily, I live a short 5-minute bike ride/10-minute walk from my local H&M, so the risk of not finding what I want is much less severe!

Amanda said...

i just went to h&m and tried those on.. they def won't work for every body type- they are kind of short so you can't have a long torso unless you plan on only tucking them in. i did get the leather tee dress though in the same style..so epic, thx for the heads up!

Anonymous said...

Love those! I will definitely keep a look out for them when I stop by H & M. Thanks for posting!

Amanda said...

yeah dude, i guess all the stores merchandise different or they just didn't have it but in soho the tees are with the longer dress version too! the fit is nice and it's a v-neck. i will try to get a pic sometime soon!

Mink said...

Sweet!
I got to get me on of those.
Btw.. i love your new hair!
You are so f´ing cool!

kaitlin said...

Hannah said...

mmmmmm. I need to get to the mall....

Taylor said...

I definitely need the black one. Maybe I need both....

Ross said...

I actually kinda like the H&M version of the black leather tee better than the Celine.

CC said...

They're gorgeous! i love the black one. Yay for cheaper, H&M versions of things that we otherwise wouldn't be able to afford even if we sold our house. :)
On a different note, how have they not been smacked with a lawsuit from Celine for this? :\
Fab blog! Xx

Sarah K. said...

Can't seem to find this at any of my closest H&M's!! grrr >:[

However, I'll be in LA soon and will probably go hunting for it then. Which H&M did you find these at?

dotLIGHTdot said...
