What I'm Wearing: Bi-Textural

Well here I am, a whole new look. Not my body, but my blog. It was time to class this joint up. Last weekend I bought not one, but three black faux leather skirts while I was out. I bought the one in picture above at H&M first and then proceeded to find two more at Value World (which I only paid a total of $4 for both). The posts on the other two will have to come at a later date, so you will just have to hold your horses - I know you all can't wait (yes, this is sarcasm).

Today I decided  to play with different textures and wear a sparkly sea foam green knit sweater with the faux leather for a sweet and sassy look. I really wish the pictures did the sweater justice as it is quite pretty. The sweater somewhat tones down the edginess of the faux leather making it especially office appropriate.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)
