Rick Owens Blister Leather Biker Jacket + Donna Karan Convertible Blend Cashmere-Stretch Maxi Skirt + Vince Camuto Lexis2 Peep-Toe Pumps in Black + Mania Mania Psychic Ring in Gold + stila Smudge Crayon Waterproof Eye Primer + Shadow + Liner in Umber + Rebecca Minkoff Triangle Rex Minaudiere in Vanilla + Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Juicy Peach

Short hemlines are one of my vices, ranking right up there with my shoe snobbery; yet even I am incapable of ignoring the seductive purr of a maxi skirt that sits upon one’s hips in such a place that allows for a sliver of skin to peek out between top and bottom, and hugs one’s lower half in a style synonymous with that of a pencil skirt.

Balance the stretchy, second-skin of the skirt with a downtown-inspired draped-collar motorcycle jacket that adds just the right amount of cool; and match the peek of skin above your waistline with a pair of black suede peep-toes. A highly-detailed clutch in a contrasting shade breaks up the monochromatic effect; while a delicate ring contributes the perfect hint of sparkle. Go feminine but fierce with your makeup using a gold-flecked peachy pink gloss on your lips; and smudge a bronze-leaning brown liner around your lower lashline and the outer corners of your eyes for a smoldering effect that is subtle yet striking.

Now I feel like breaking out my leather jacket. Which is sad because it's supposed to snow tonight. Sigh.

I don't think I could pull off that skirt, but that jacket, TAKE MY MONEY!

Tights Lover said...

I've always been a fan of the Maxi skirt. It defies logic, but it can often be sexier than the mini! I love the way you accessorized it here!

Sherin said...

Such a fun and edgy look! Really love those shoes.

I always love a Rick Owens so. much. What a great leather jacket Love these picks doll! xx/Madison

Claire Kiefer said...

I have that Neutrogena stick in a more raspberry color and I love it! It goes on so well and the color is perfect. I also love the way it smells, which sounds silly, but it's important. :) The only thing is that it doesn't stay on that long, but I find that to be true about just about all lip products. I'll keep buying it though because it looks so pretty on!
