Leather Lady






Skirt: H&M, Shirt: J.Crew, Tights: Gap. Booties: Steve Madden Luxe, Bracelets: Lucky Brand,
Watch & Sunglasses: Michael Kors, Necklace: Spitalfields Market (London)
Despite the fact that I practically have to remove a rib to wear this skirt (especially after lunch), I love it. You'd think there wouldn't be that many uses for a pleated leather miniskirt, but boy would you be wrong. It's surprisingly versatile. I wore this skirt dressed up with a lace t-shirt for New Year's Eve, and it's equally great with a casual chambray shirt. I have to give credit where credit is due — I was inspired by Krystal of This Time Tomorrow, who wore a similar outfit way, way back in December. Truthfully, I didn't even know my memory went back that far. It's possible I repressed it and was just holding onto it for later use. I loved her pleated faux-leather skirt so much when I first saw it that I ran right out and tracked one down myself. (Seriously, I think I saw her outfit and went to H&M on my lunch hour to track this baby down.) Plus leather, even faux leather, always makes me feel like kind of a badass. Someone show me to my Harley, and I'll be all set. (Or maybe I'll just sit in the sidecar . . . this is a skirt, after all.)
