Leather skirts – they’re everywhere! I think we can probably thank 50 shades of Gray for the influx of leather in to this season’s collections, aside from the fact that it usually makes at least a small appearance every Autumn/Winter Season
So following on from yesterday’s assertions that Leather is the fabric du jour, Leather is in Vogue, I was pleasantly surprised to find a vintage fitted leather pencil skirt – another find in Chest Heart Stroke Scotland – that place really is a treasure trove, provided you have a little extra cash than normal.
This was a gorgeous vintage calf length fitted pencil skirt. Button detail on the front makes it a little more contemporary, ironically! At £30 this is still a steal by comparison to what this would cost you new. You can tell it’s vintage because it’s labelled as a size 10, and this did not fit me, not even close. I am a 10 in pretty much every high street store, but this was made back in the days when we were thinner, before sizes were expanded in order to massage our collapsing egos.
I struggled to get it over my hips with the zip completely undone. However, have no fear, I did manage to take a fairly respectable picture to show what this would look like had it fitted.
Please excuse the questionable choice of footwear, but I am still an invalid. It was stunning and I am still very upset that I am not a size 6-8, I would sacrifice the rest of my wardrobe for this.
I would pair this skirt with a simple white shirt and black leather heels. I would also love to wear this to work, however it would be a question of whether I would dare.
