I can’t quite figure out what it is about this skirt

that makes me wear it with menswear.

Maybe it’s its short, black leather-ness —  it could look mildly scandalous unless paired with a conservative top. You know, something a lumberjack would wear.

The shirt is men’s vintage. So is the watch. It’s my husband’s Omega from the 50s (for months he wouldn’t let me wear it and when he finally did, the first thing I did was break the strap — sorryyyyyy!).mens-shirt-leather-skirt

At least we can figure out what it is about me that makes him hesitant to lend me anything.

    The skirt is gorgeous! You definitely have the touch when pairing clothing together that you wouldn’t ordinarily pair. Looks great!

    you know what it is about the skirt? you’re wearing it.
    love how you paired it with that vintage shirt and that first pic of you in motion is amazing! also noticed your eclectic array of mirrors in the background, LOVE that too.

    another flawless outfit, as always.

    I’d be so glad you tell me about your stay at La Sorbonne. I studied here too. When have you been there ? Perhaps we met ?

    Great skirt! A menswear-inspired top is an unexpected choice to pair it with, but you make it work fabulously. :)

    I remember this skirt from a previous post of yours (I think)… I had a great black leather skirt and misplaced it somehow, so I’m in desperate need of another. I do know how tricky it is to pair this without looking to ‘Pretty Woman’ (the same issue applies to thigh-high boots). Pairing it with something more masculine is a great idea!

    SEXY! That skirt is really cool… I love the texturing on it..

    You know what always makes your photos so great? The twirling photo… it must be your signature :)
