I’ve been searching for a reasonably work-appropriate leather skirt, lamenting all the skirts I’ve loved and passed on buying before. Then it hit me–I already have a leather dress. Why not work with THAT?

I’ve worn it before…

Clearly, the dress in its au naturale state is entirely unseemly for any office that doesn’t support trashy reality TV/some variation of adult entertainment. However, adding a buttoned-to-the-top oxford shirt and cardigan in somber gray makes it (almost) proper.

Vintage dress and belt; BCBG cardigan; RL shirt; DKNY heels; Anthropologie earrings

I decided on nude heels and simple earrings, because really, turquoise leather is Eighties Hooker ENOUGH–even for me.
