Lookbook: The Leather Skirt Rundown

7/22/2013

For this shoot, I was looking around for a somewhat rundown area for the background of these photos. It was actually quite hard trying to find a place like this in San Jose. But just minutes before I lost daylight, I came across this old building and interesting fence in Japantown (I later ate Mexican food in Japantown, but that's another story).

This skirt is another piece I picked up in Ireland. I think it's my first leather skirt, ever. But I totally love it because it has pockets. Not often do you find a skater skirt with pockets, so I was sold.| Nastygal sweet studs blouse | Topshop Andie faux leather skater skirt | Gucci nameplate pumps | Juicy Couture bag | By the way, I haven't been very impressed with summer movies this year. I feel like I'm always leaving the theater disappointed, and maybe that's because I give movies too much credit--much like I do with people. So I guess that means people will be up to snuff once the movie business stops putting out so many flops.

What do you think of this look?

  19. Having a leather skirt with pockets is such a wearable piece all year long and edgy. I really like your blouse, and how it as a soft touch to the skirt. The handbag and the color of your open toe pumps accentuate your ensemble very well.
