I've been on the lookout for a black skirt for a while...a black leather skirt, that is. As I've mentioned before, I have a lot of thrifted and consignment (and new) leather and suede pieces, but the classic black skirt has eluded me.
I found this beauty in a consignment store for $32.99. As far as I'm concerned, that's a score. This is thick, soft leather, and the front and back are made of only two full panels, stitched down the front, not multiple panels of scrap leather. It's also a great length (perfectly at the knee) and it hasn't gone stiff or cracked from age.
I'm wearing it with my favourite patterned blouse and my olive corduroy vest:
Aw, cuddly boy!
The boots are actually blood red, quite dramatic - I can't believe it's been over a year since I last wore them!
My Shi Studio necklace:
Back to the skirt for a minute. I mentioned that for its age, it's very soft. One guess as to how old it is, based purely on the colours in the label.
