leather on leather

{H&M duster coat, LOFT sheer blouse, vintage DKNY leather skirt, Hollister beanie, Nine West booties, F21 belt, ring, BR Market Tote}

Decided to dress up on Oscar Sunday, even though I didn't go to any Oscar viewing parties, or even watch any of it. Regardless this is me dressing up or down, on a most elegant night. I wanted to pull out my sequin blazer, and maxi skirt, and go all out, but my mind changed direction once I saw this skirt hanging untouched in my closet.

I busted out the red lips, my hipster beanie, and pulled out my newest favorite bag- which my bf just happened to surprise me on Valentine's Day with. It's so dreamy- I mean it feels like butter!

*special thoughts and prayers out to all those affected by the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan, and around the world*


  1. That bag is amazing - I'm jealous. I got a book on Valentines Day from my boyfriend haha; it really pales in comparison to that bag.
    I love that red lipstick on you! And you don't need a reason to dress up (or down) - you look fantastic, with or without an Oscar viewing party or shindig.
