Leather Scalloped Skirt, Polka Dots, & Orange Tights

Happy weekend everyone! I just had the most lazy weird Friday ever, so I'm updating later than usual. I basically slept on and off since class got done at noon. I know, I'm pretty exciting.

This outfit was fun today though! I wore my leather skirt that we recently DIY scallop hemmed. I may post a little tutorial of sorts on how to do that, but it's pretty self explanatory. I like that the skirt is a little shorter now. It still squeezes my insides right at the waist, but it's more comfortable now that I'm having a few skinny months. Leather just doesn't have any give! Oh well, it looks cool.

I got to pull out my bag of long-sleeved tops and sweaters and such today. It's finally cool in the morning so the extra arm covering was welcome. Plus it was almost like Christmas getting to pull out my warm-weather-only clothes after all this time! 


I always love when I realize one of my outfits is nearly all thrifted. The top, skirt, and shoes in this outfit were all thrifted. I'm not sure what era this skirt is from. Maybe early 90's? The shoes are more-than-likely late 60's. The top is probably rather new. Who knows, though. I could be all wrong! But the thrifted factor means it was a super cheap outfit. Thrifting pieces like this leather skirt is a great way to mix up a wardrobe on a very very small budget. I only paid $1 for the skirt, after all!



This outfit seemed very "fall" to me. It's probably the orange tights with the black skirt and shoes. They were a hit with some people on campus though, which always feels good! Plus someone in my comm. theory class said I look pretty today. It's hard to beat that compliment!

P.S. - I submitted this look over at Coffee and Cardigans' Thrifter Thursdays feature! So check that out and submit a thrifted look of your own!

This is really great! I think outfits with a lot of thrifted things tend to be some of the best. Your hair looks so cute like that too...black bows in red hair = awesome.

Lovely lady! I like everything about this outfit. Those earrings are so pretty. And that skirt is so rad. And that top is the coolest print ever (and black and white spots aaahhhhhmazing!). And yeah. This is really awesome and cute. :D

Lazy Fridays are the best. It's like a good transition into the weekend.

Anyway, your blog is so super lovely and I'm definitely following! It's so refreshing to see someone who isn't afraid of fun patterns and colors! n__n

Oh wow, I this is my all time favorite outfit of yours, I am in love with that leather skirt. (I must do a scalloped hem, asp! It looks amazing and really makes the leather skirt look so special and different.) I really like the red patterned tights as the main pop of color of the whole outfit, it looks very sleek and stylish.

I like the mash-up of pattern from polka dots to "laddered" stockings and the leather. Now I am on the hunt for a leather skirt to tailor.
