I did it, I wore the red leather skirt today.
This beauty was made for Saks Fifth Avenue but I bet I bought it for far less than its original owner. Are you ready for this? $25.00! Shipping and all!
I decided that for that price I would get it home and then decide if I actually had the courage to give it a spin.
What do you think? Was it worth a role of the dice?
Naturally, I tucked the blouse in though. You just cannot let a skirt like this not be on full display. Hee Hee
Senseable collar. Not too much showing... you know what I mean.
They work together rather well. I may put these two together on their own one weekend soon?
Again, in keeping with my effort to make the whole ensemble as "professional" as possible... I went with a simple black blazer from one of my suits. Tasteful. Understated.
I thought briefly about my beloved tall black boots but decided at the last minute that these Stuart Wietzman shoes would be more "professional" and would help to play down the color of this skirt.
What do you think? Would have you gone with the boots?
And the full ensemble...
Well, was I successful? Did I pull off an acceptable office look while wearing my red leather skirt?
In the end, the experience could not have been any less eventful. A couple of people at the office commented about how much they loved the color... that was it.
I think this baby will see the light of day again soon...
BTW... Valentine's was kinda lame for me. How was yours?
I met an old college buddy for dinner. We have done this every year when both he and I do not have a Valentine's Day date. Sadly, there have been far too many Valentine's Day dinners between the two of us over the years. Hee Hee
No frowny faces... it really is okay.
