This wasn't an intentional 1 skirt, 2 ways kinda thing but I guess it technically is. Kind of. I've wanted a faux leather mini for a while now. I might subconsciously be collecting leather (or pleather as it may be) in every silhouette? Variations on these looks have been taking me everywhere recently, and the skirt from A/X has been a much needed addition to the collection.
On loan from NET-A-PORTER (sponsor): 3.1 Phillip Lim drawstring leather shorts (love), Pamela Love Triple X cuff (both looks) and Aurélie Bidermann gold-dipped lace cuff.
Paired with my own: Freeway Eyewear 405s, AA sleeveless shirt, beauty supply turban, Chloé docs, red Zara tulip dress.
Here's a twofer (okay, who knew that was in the dictionary? I definitely didn't until right now when it didn't come up red in spell-check) because Net-a-Porter (!) kindly sent over some very fun toys to play with (just for play, sadly not for keeps) and then I couldn't resist slipping on my holiday dress... especially since I teased a bit via twitter.
Now let's give a proper moment to the glorious Pamela Love and this Triple X cuff... A lot of my cuffs border on Shera/Warrior Princess territory but I'm obsessed with how delicate this one manages to read. If anyone is searching for an extra special gift for pretty much any lady, I'd recommend a Pamela Love piece. Or really, stick anything from Net-a-Porter under the tree and you'd make someone very, very jolly... Despite the luxury we've all come to know and love NAP for they have a beautiful stocking stuffer selection too. I'm a fan of all the little Smythson notebooks and of course the best part of online shopping: Sort > Price > Low to high...
As for myself, outside of holiday party dressing, I haven't gotten into the holiday spirit much and my wishlist is pretty bare this season. All I want is mental clarity and you definitely can't get that at the mall, so I'm totally cool just focusing on fam and friends. But since family & friends aren't great at taking "please, don't get me anything" as an answer... tell me what's on your holiday list this year so I can get inspired!?
PS - a snap of how I wore the dress to the William Rast Target party below the cut!
This is what I wore to the Vintage Swap party I posted about below (I didn't swap much, but it was a fun night). Not really sure what I was thinking here, but basically I didn't feel like trying to match and wanted to be comfortable with a touch of hooker? Haha I really don't know, but I kinda like it.
