Leather...

Monday, January 28, 2013

Ive wanted a black leather skirt for AGES. But it is something I have weird requirements for... the feel, the thickness- not too thin as it can look cheap. The shape and tightness- Im not a bodycon person. This skirt fits all my requirements, it feels like real leather even though its not and its a good heavy weight for winter. The high waist and slightly longer length are perfect for my style and for day or night.
Yet despite its perfectness I found it hard style. I think because I never wear black..ever bar black tights that styling it with my usual bright colours proved too... crude. So on this occasion I styled it with my trusty denim shirt and favourite oversized cardy.

And finally (apologies for the delay) the winner of my Jarlo Dress giveaway is No 49 Endless Summer. Congrats!
Thank you for all the nice comments on my last post. Still undecided of whether to make it a monthly feature or not. xo

  3. I think you did a great job styling it! I always seem to end up wearing black with black too much. I love the look of leather skirts on others but I don't think its something I would wear as I think I would get too hot and bothered in one.

  8. I know exactly what you are on about with the whole requirements thing! It's the same thing which has been keeping me from buying a leather skirt! And a black skater skirt come to that (I want it to be a little bit unusual not just a plain black one, not too thin or too thick, not too sticky outy etc etc)
    Such a cute outfit :)
