I know, the price is overwhelming. I’m still recovering…even after its sale price. BUT, I’ve never owned a leather skirt, and I heart leather!! My husband LOVINGLY picked these up at one of the NY stores, since he works in the city, and I was hoping I’d hate the skirt, the fit, the material. (Some husbands buy leather bags, and mine bought this BEAUTIFUL leather skirt.) Secretly, so I can return it, but I tried it on and it feels like heaven. It looks classy, with that soft supple leather that looks like leather but doesn’t scream it from across the room. Also, the juxtaposition of the cut out scallop-like trim detailing makes the hardcore leather-look seem feminine and soft. I absolutely am crazy over this skirt. Leifsdottir can do no wrong. The fit is perfect. I’m typically a size 4, and this skirt is TTS. It’s also a mini. I’m 5’2 and the hem definitely hits above my knees a few inches, but not so much that I’d get a few covered whispers from the women at church. This is definitely a worthy splurge. It’s GORGEOUS.
So I bought a BC bag. I’m not one to buy expensive bags because, frankly, I don’t have the money for it. However, I do wait for sales, or go on ebay for major discount. The word is “wait.” But I absolutely have a fascination for BC bags because of its soft slouchy leather and cute interior fabrics. This one’s completely practical because of the 3 front compartments, the supple space inside, and a back full zipper that can contain even a journal for this writer. Talk about handy. I also have a fetish for lilac this spring, hence the color ;). I really do like this line. *sigh*
