No summer is complete without some nice sunnies, a lovely pair of strappy heels, and leather accessories. Oh and let’s not forget a lovely swimsuit. Here are must have’s for the upcoming season:

     

    Sunnies:

    All of us need the perfect shades and there is one brand that is always in style. Ray Ban’s. We love a gold plated oversized aviator look to compliment the lightness of summer colors. This summer we want to be playful so mirrored frames also sound lovely! These kind of gold tones will pair very well with a Story Leather tote bag or hand bag. For days when we want to be more adventurous, some cat eye glasses will do the trick!

     

    Strappy Heels:

    Every fashionista needs the perfect summer shoe and this year we are loving the look of a strappy heel. Wear it with some fun summer shorts and a pinstripe top or try some boyfriend jeans for a fun look. We are loving the Olivia Nude Sandal on polyvore.com

     

    Story Leather Accessory:

    Our must have accessory for the summer from Story Leather would definitely be a summer tote bag! Story Leather’s Mayfield Woven Tote Bag is the perfect bag for all your summer adventures. Pack up for a nice day out and about the city for shopping or a nice beach day. It’s the perfect design but you can create your own perfect design and you can select any color that you want, we’re thinking a sandy color would be perfect!

     

    Summer is a fun and free time. It’s a time to be warm and light hearted. It’s a great time to be adventurous and get out of your comfort zones. Play with color, play with patterns, play with fashion, play with your style. Merchandise it up, style it up. Make this summer one to remember.

  • The Stylish Type Of Guy

    Posted on April 21, 2016 by Andrea Romero

    There is a little something oh so special about the stylish type of guy, a little something that makes everybody look twice, even at the details. It’s A-OK by us to be around stylish guys and we have all the goods to go with it at Story Leather. A stylish type of guy can be seen at the coffee shop where he stops in to get a little pick me up before a business meeting, on campus, a driving stroll that happens to catch your eye, and let’s face it those stylish celebrities are hard to miss.

     

     
    An accessory that the stylish type of guy can’t miss and has to start with is his phone. A stylish phone case says a lot about you and protects your phone of course, you can choose which reason you care more about, but we are going with style for now. A Story Leather can fit the bill for every type of case you can think of, but these are some of our top choices. The luxury colored leather brown of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge case is pretty stellar and all over cover phone case for the iPhone SE is pretty stellar as well. No matter what style you go with, everything can customized to the latest or oldest style.
     

    If you’re the busy type of a stylish type, we definitely recommend the Black Napa Leather Long Belt Clip Holster Case for Apple iPhone 6s with Black Leather Back Cover. Our Story Leather customers would agree with us since the item since we sold out of it the first time but had to bring it back.

     
    Another thing that a stylish type can’t miss is his wallet, it’s an every day thing and attention is needed. You will never have to worry about not having options so don’t limit yourself as we are only showing you a few options, but we must say that we very much like the look of a compact sleek and less time consuming wallet that keeps it simple like the Claris Wallet pictured below. You can even add your initials for extra style points. If you’re not exactly liking the Claris Wallet, see how you feel about the Stockton Wallet which has more of classic yet bold look. This wallet has a Coffee Crocodile Pattern We’re going to ahead and settle this with the last essential that needs to be addressed by the stylish type of guy which is his key chain, it can be forgotten but it’s something that we all deal with everyday somehow even if you have a push to start just in case you were making that argument up in your head. One of our favorite choices is the Carlsson Leather Key Fob which perfectly complements your house key or your car key. The pebbled leather is a classic and stylish, it is nicely differentiated by silver metal. Custom made to order handcrafted genuine leather key holder.
     

    All of our leather goods are hand made and crafted by our team of leather artisans. All leather goods are made one at a time base on your specifications of color, texture and any additional personalization needs which makes the stylish type of guys stand out even a little more. It’s all in the details.

  • Keep Your Smartphone Safe with White Leather Cases

    Posted on April 15, 2016 by Jerry Lee

    Are you one of those people who buy a new smartphone in every six months because of the excess scratches on it? If so then you need a remedy for it. This is not a big deal to as you can always buy a new phone. But is that okay? Are these new smartphones every month worth spending your budget on? You need to stop buying new phones twice annually. Keeping your cell phone in a good condition is what you should focus on instead of thinking of a new one. Of course, in such a busy life that cares about protecting their phone but a white leather case can do this for you.

     

     

    A leather case is an ultimate solution for your problem and it protects your smartphones from scratches and acts as a protectant against any water spills too. If you are looking to buy a smartphone leather case then here are the following things you need to consider before you buy one:

     

    Style and Exclusivity

    You may have seen people carrying amazing smartphone cases and seeing them would definitely make you want to get one too. A better case stands out in the crowd. Doesn’t matter if you own an iPhone, Htc 10, or Samsung Galaxy S7 amd S7 Edge, you can now get a leather case for your smartphones easily. Save your smartphone from scratches and make it live longer.

     


    Colors

     

    Match your leather case with your everyday look. But here’s a tip for you to avoid getting on the issue of color selection. You can always choose the standard white leather case for your smartphone as it can get along with any kind of dress you are about to wear. You won’t have to stress about matching it with anything as it gets along with everything. Imagine a white smartphone with a black case. That is absurd. Better get that white one.
     

    Functionality and Utility

     

    The latest smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and iPhone SE have got a sensitive signal reception. If after putting on the phone case you encounter signal trouble then it is clear that you have bought the wrong one. The functionality of your smartphone should not be compromised due to some kind of ordinary phone case. If the phone case leads to better functionality then automatically you will get better utility from the smartphone and the case too.

     

    Usability

     

    One more thing you need to check before buying a leather case is that it should be easy to use. In the case of emergencies, nobody likes to unwrap layers and layers of buttons or straps to get to their phone. Instead, everybody prefers instant use. So always buy a leather case that is easy to use.
    With the abundance of smart phone leather cases available in the market, the standard white ones are always the top best in use, appearance and never affect the functionality of the smartphones if you buy quality ones. Choose carefully and live care freely.

    The Diamond Python Hides
    At Story Leather, designers use more unique and popular python skins of Southeast Asian python reticulates –these largest python skins are also known as diamond python. It doesn’t require any processing or thinning with tools that are usually required for scaly reptile hides. The end result of the product is nothing but a piece of art all set to fulfill your high fashion needs.
