I really want a faux leather piece this fall too. I was looking at a pleated skirt, but may go for a peplum top.
a peplum top in leather sounds divine--so sculptural!
I think the Zara tee might pair well with a skirt - it might be fun to try tucking it into a pencil skirt that's solid or printed. :)
good call on pairing the tee with a the pencil skirt!
