Black and White Leather, and Courreges

Wee! It's Tuesday! My team is in the caboose position (i.e. last) in the stair challenge at work, so I had to get motoring today so that we can catch up. I climbed over 30 flights over the day.
And I did it in heels! I tied this leather jacket around my waist, because I was huffin' and puffin' by the time I hit the 6th/top floor.

  • Jacket - Bianca Nygard, thrifted; purchased here a couple of weeks ago for $39.50
  • Skirt - Andre Courreges, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here (3rd outfit, past the cat pictures) in July 2014 with paisley ruffles
  • Shoes - Poetic License; last seen here in December 2014 with posh pink leather

I also wore a silky red cami underneath the jacket to show my team colours!

I absolutely loved this jacket - the white piping is just spectacular. Also, amazing fit.
My much-treasured $5.00 (yes, you read that right) thrifted Andre Courreges wool/cashmere pencil skirt. Five dollars! I still boggle - Courreges invented the mini skirt, fer goodness' sake!

The stuff:
Sweet, sweet dotted shoes! As comfy as ever, even for doing lots of stairs.

Round bling:
Black and white is quite a statement on its own, so minimal accessories.

  • Earrings - Plum
  • Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes


  1. I love those PL shoes - I had a similar pair but my feet never got used to them, sad me. Go team red, show those stairs who's boss.

  2. You are the Most Valuable Player at your office! I can't imagine tackling all those stairs in a leather jacket and high heels. If I was wearing those gorgeous clothes I'd just swan around looking fabulous and let someone else do the grunt work. But then I wouldn't have your figure either. Stunning outfit!

  3. Stunning look! I adore the skirt and envy you (can't find alike like... forever) and the shoes are even too cute!
