Butter (See Jane Wear)

Forever 21 sweater + necklace, Madewell skirt, Topshop heels, Express tights, Jewelmint necklace (c/o), Acanthus ring (c/o)
I'm really not much of an impulse shopper, but when I saw this skirt on sale for Black Friday, I quickly made a game time decision.  I suppose it's not much of an impulse purchase though, because I've been scouring sales and eBay for a similar skirt for the past six months.  The leather is so buttery and soft; it will definitely be a piece that gets better with time.  This is one of those items that I think to myself, 'I am totally passing this skirt down to my daughter.'  And then I realize by the time this future daughter would be able to wear it, we'll probably all be wearing metallic spacesuits and have flying cars.


PS.  Thanks to my co-worker/friend Teresa for kindly taking these pictures.

Metalllic spacesuits? Nah... I'm sure your future daughter will most appreciate a vintage leather skirt her mommy used to rock! ;o)
