Leather and Lace

Tank: c/o Karen Kane; Skirt: c/o Beauxx; Shoes: Ann Taylor (on major sale!); Clutch: Aldo; Earrings, Necklace (not available), Bracelet, Ring: c/o Poshlocket
This is another look I put together for Poshlocket.  I'm not going to lie.  I've never been one for leather.  Or pleather, fleather, whatever.  Last year, I bought my first jacket.  And I have to say, it does kind of make me feel like a rock star!  But leather pants?  Oh, Lord no.  Shorts?  Maybe.  But a pencil skirt?  Definitely more my language.  This one from has a classic cut, but in an unconventional way.  It's classy, but with a little bit of edge.  To soften the texture, I paired it with a lace top.  And just had to throw on these espadrille platforms.  I may have been feeling as though I looked fierce, however, walking fierce was a whole other story.  Mainly because platforms and I don't mix, because in real life, I'm entirely clumsy.  But as I say in fashion, style before comfort.  Always.  My older sister taught me that.

Hey, hot stuff! Lookin' good in the leather! I completely support your decision to forgo the leather pants in favor of the pencil skirt. I think it's equal parts sass and class, and in my book that's the perfect combo.

Love the pencil skirt! The cut makes the leather seem less intense. Thanks for sharing! :)

I love that skirt! I saw one exactly like it in a thrift shop last week, but it wasn't in my size - I was so bummed!

Looks great on you. Love it paired with the lace.

You look gorgeous as usual! I love the *idea* of leather...but in real life? I doubt i could pull it off! Leather pants always make me think of that "Friends" episode where Ross wore leather pants and he can't pull them up again bc he's sweating too much, so he uses baby powder and lotion and makes a big ol' mess! lol that's why I've avoided leather pants :) But that skirt is cute!! ~

Leather and Lace done right! :) You look elegant even with the edgy leather. I love all the accessories, I was hoping to find that necklace but I guess it's no longer available.

Excellent outfit! :)

Love that combo! I wish I could rock leather and lace but I think it's just a bit too edgy for me. But you pull it off beautifully!
