happiness twice over.

i nearly died when i pulled this leather wrap skirt out of the motherload. i remember a friend gave it to me years ago because it didn't fit her. i think it didn't fit me either, so i eventually got rid of it. guess i was smart enough not to throw out leather, because here it was with the tags still on, a few white-ish spots that easily rubbed out, but in otherwise excellent condition and just as buttery smooth as i remember. this time it fit.

this gray dress is one of those things i try on many times but end up not wearing. a belt makes it pull in weird places, but alone it just hangs. i threw on the skirt, intending to take the dress off, but found it actually worked together. so i finally got to wear the leather and make use of this dress. i was happy.

  17. Love the skirt and the dress works so well with it. It's that whole hard and soft look that I've been obsessing about, but can rarely pull off. You do it with such ease! =)

  19. I have a dress I wear like that, too! It's too billowy and way too short to wear alone, but looks great tucked into a skirt.
