who's bad?





Before you all giggle and call me out for sporting these gloves that I likely didn't wear all day (too hard to type with), let me explain. Originally, as I was 10 minutes ahead of schedule this morning (a first!) I decided that I needed to spruce up my leather skirt and silk combo. After harboring a secret admiration for how the lovely Liz over at Late Afternoon wore her cut-off biker gloves just a few weeks ago, I decided, why the f- not?

I mean, you never know when you might have to jump on a Harley with a guy named Hell's Doorman. Really, you never know.

On top of that, the annual motorcycle festival, Street Vibrations is going on here in town. That means thousands of bikers from all over the country cruising the streets and generally causing the windows here at work to vibrate throughout the day.

Might as well pay some homage, right?

Shirt: Vintage mint green silk shirt, Christian Dior
Skirt: Vintage Italian leather skirt
Shoes: Black heels, Aldo
Gloves: Black leather biker gloves, Charlotte-Russe

P.S. I'm in search of the perfect pair of platform pumps like these only not by YSL because, quite frankly, I'd have to sell a kidney for that. Any suggestions?!

  1. Oh golly! I'd kill for pumps like that. Kind of a weak answer, but I'm guessing Jessica Simpson might make similar ones... a lot of her styles are "inspired by" designer shoemakers. Ya never know! Oh, and I love how you paired that gorgeous vintage silk with leather. The chains are an especially nice touch. :)

  5. I've been looking for black pumps too, and I finally found ones that I am satisfied with. Check Zara...last time I went, they had very similar pumps but only for ~$60 or something like that. I'm out to go get them right now! good luck~ :)

    p.s. I really like the shirt!

  10. Love the leather skirt! I just bought a thrifted (originally from BR) a-line one (not quite as badass) that I plan on subtly including in my corporate office wardrobe sort of just to see if anyone says anything about the fact that I'm wearing leather!
