Since I work at a fashion start-up, I'm suddenly surrounded by plaids, wools and other fall textures; it's hard not to assimilate even though the weather is still warm. Leather will be back in full force again this fall and every time I pull out this skirt, I'm so glad I purchased it a couple years ago. It's almost season-less since I'm able to wear it so often. When I bought it back in 2011, it seemed like a somewhat frivolous purchase (how many times will I wear a leather skirt, I thought), but I'm glad I bit the bullet--it's a closet staple for me.
(**Here's a few different alternatives for this skirt since it's been sold out for awhile: this, this and this one.)
