Leather Skirt for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Paired with Lace
Quote of the day: “It is easy to be wise after the event.” Proverb
Do any other women have (faux) leather skirts out there? Do you think it’s a little inappropriate or crazy? Well, I think it’s time we showed a little craziness and embraced life. This is exactly how I feel when wearing my leather skirt. Of course the only reason all three of us have this item in common is thanks to my fabulous mother. She had made hers a couple years ago, then I got one made for me a little after that. Mom decided to make Nancy one this year for Christmas so we could do an entire blog series on them! Isn’t that cute? Since leather can be considered quite masculine, I decided to pair it with more feminine items. This post will feature the addition of lace. I love how by wearing a different color under you lace really can change it up.
50’s Leather Skirt: I went with a red striped pair of tights to give my blogging friend, Samantha, a run for her money! How’d I do?
