So this clothes swap has become terribly dangerous, as I find myself needing every piece that I get to play with! This skirt being an example - who would have thought green leather could be such a great staple?  I think I'm just scraping the tip of the iceberg with the possibilities for this piece. Must find some other unexpected hue in leather STAT.

  3. loving those Miu Miu's! I am still saving up for my (2nd!) pair. However my first pair I found in a consignment shop. I don't think I'll be so luck this time around. I love the color of your skirt as well.

    Lovely!

  4. Topping that green leather (or is it turquoise? Whatever, it's gorge) with the luxe satin for day is genius. I'm officially stunned with your awesomeness once again!

  8. Green leather is a fine ass combination for a skirt! It looks so light and pliable. You just reminded me I need more skirts in my wardrobe. I've gone from being a skirts girl (at least in my head) to someone who has nary a single skirt anymore. Must rectify soon.

  10. So lovely! I love the idea of feminine leather. I'm particularly impressed by this look becuase it features some pieces I would NEVER know what to do with. That length skirt is confusing to me. The top is gorgeous, but that kind of top never feels "me", the lefth of the necklace. Everything. It's a list of things that I don't know how to handle, and you handle perfectly! Ah.
