Day Four, my friends. Day Four! I feel a great sense of accomplishment, having reached this late stage in the week with only six pieces of clothing to play with. Although, before you heap praise on me in the comments, take a look at today’s rework and see what you think…
I’ve been searching for the perfect leather pencil skirt for years. Seriously – I’ve tried so many styles, brands, vintage shops, eBay auctions and thrifty finds but they’ve never fitted properly (or at all, in many cases – leather is very unforgiving on the hips) and I’ve always returned or sold them.
This skirt was the result of two glasses of wine on a week night and some very competitive eBay bidding. When I won for £15.76 I didn’t hold out much hope, but as soon as I slipped it on (over the hips! Hooray!) I was in love. It fits like a dream. The leather is soft as butter. It’s deceptively comfortable. The perfect length, with the perfect slit at the back. My most-cherished skirt ever. Sigh.
I think it looks wonderful with the camel colour of the blouse too, and this may just be one of my favourite outfits I’ve worn on the blog. What do you think?
PS – I know the black polo neck could be considered cheating. Technically it’s another item, not an accessory. But I need it for body temperature purposes and hope you’ll be too distracted by the beauty of the skirt to notice.
