Dead Sexy

I'm sure I'm going to get all kinds of creepy hits with that title, but whatevs, I felt dead sexy in this outfit all day. I mean, how can one not feel sexy when wearing red leather?
I went for a bit of a rockabilly pin-up look (but tried to keep it office-appropriate). I am wearing a red camisole under the top to keep the cleavage covered up, and I chose to wear nude fishnets so that I didn't have bare legs with such a sexy skirt.

And oh yes, what a sexy skirt! It was even better than I'd remembered from trying it on this past weekend when I bought on consignment (here). Well worth every penny of the $19.99 I paid for it! 
I nearly always wear a belt since I have to wear an ID card, a swipe access card and a whack of keys for my job every day. Need to have something to clip that sucker to.

I bought the top at the same time, in the same store, for $12.98 - such a score for both pieces. It's hard to see here, but the top has white pinstripes.
Am I allowed to say I think my own butt looks ah-mazing in this? Ha!

The stuff:
I did have a lot of compliments from my coworkers today. Of course, these shoes always prompt "ooohs"! They are my fabulous Fluevog Coffee Sumatras, last seen here in March with a burgundy suede skirt.

Bling things:
My suite of red coral, homegrown vintage rings and some assorted locally-made/bought and thrifted pieces.

Top (Heart Moon Star, consignment), skirt (Ocean West, consignment), shoes (Coffee Sumatras, Fluevog), belt/coral bracelet (Plum), stretchy cuff (thrifted), snake/spider ring (vintage 80s), red ring (Oscar & Libby's), earrings (locally-made), spoon ring (About Tine).

I will be taking a little break for a few days. Good vibes to you all!
