I Never Thought I'd Wear a Leather Dress to Work

But then, when one thinks of leather dresses, this isn't what comes to mind:
The green cardigan is also new - it has sparkly buttons! It's hard to see, but it has gathers at the tops of the sleeves.

Here's a shot of the full dress:
Most people didn't realize it was a dress (as opposed to a skirt) until I told them. Isn't it gorgeous? And it's soft, like buttah! It was $60 consignment. I was so excited - it fits like it was made for me.

Check out the lovely seaming on the bodice:
The stuff:
My good ol' shoes - these are two years old now. I've never worn this belt. The necklace was also a new purchase from my favourite consignment store.

Dress (Danier Leather, consignment), cardigan (Kersh, consignment), shoes (BCBGirls), belt (don't remember), necklace (consignment), earrings (not shown).
