plus size stripe jumper + leather skirt + felt hat-7

Leather week always ends up pleather week around here. Maybe it’s because my search for THE PERFECT actual leather jacket continues, or because I’m a recent convert to all things leather {you remember this post about Ross from Friends right?} but whatever the reason, pleather is more my thing.

And surprise of all surprises when I through on some clothes Saturday for a quick run around before the races I realised, I’m wearing leather {ish} and I NEED an outfit photo. I made Hubby, literally forced him, off a work site to come home and grab a pic. It’s not the best outfit, I feel like it’s missing something {maybe a fur vest? A necklace, anything!?} but I’m here with a new outfit so that counts.

New hair too, did you notice? Actually I just realised it’s probably a little difficult to see under the hat. Haha. Better luck next time. And there will be a next time, I’ve got a few photos over the weekend to show you all. Yay! Come back Wednesday for the next one, let’s talk about hair then.

Is leather making an appearance in your wardrobe?
And by leather I mean pleather too obviously.

  • I really like this outfit without a vest or necklace, I think it is simple, understated and has something classically timeless about it. I also think that not having a vest or necklace means our eyes are drawn towards the laser cut out detailing on the skirt – which really drives the outfit. Gorge! <3 Rocking that hat too !

    • Thank you Jacqueline. I guess it’s just one of those things you look at it and wonder how it would look with a little more oomph. I totally agree, of course, the laser cut wins the day here.

    Have been umm-ing and ahhing about this skirt for ages… you have just turned my contemplating into a YES.. will have to hunt one down now! Love Love Love it.

    • Well good luck in your search! The 17 Sundays one I linked too, while not leather or pleather, is a pretty great alternative. I have it too and love it just as much. Laser cut rocks.

        I think I have found one… Just need to wait til pay day and hope and wish it doesn’t sell before I have the $$

    Love this look on you! So rocking the hat again. =) I would really like a leather skirt but so far have not been able to find the right colour or cut. I have also contemplated a pair of leather shorts and again have not found the right one’s so the search continues.

    • Thank you Mel. Keep looking, I think it’s one of those wardrobe hero quests. Haha. One day, when the time is right, it’ll just show up. 😉

  • I have this skirt, but I tend to hesitate to wear it because of the flowery cut out pattern, which strikes me as a contradictory concept to the usual “badass” vibe of leather! Weird I know, but I find it slightly unsettling, haha! I’ve also put a few tiny rips in it where the holes got caught on things. You’ve made this outfit work though, and the hat is a nice pop of colour!
    By the way, I read your other post about Fashion Anarchy and I love it. Looking forward to the series.

    • Ahhh, I get it. You’re still a bad ass. Wear a black slip or something under it and it’ll conceal the detail a little. And I’ve almost ripped a whole in this one too. I’m hearing you!

      Thank you muchly Sophie! It’s under way. Day two is chugging along with day three, four and five to follow this week.

  • Super super super cute! I love stripes on you and that hat is great!

    • Thank you muchly Nat. The hat is SUCH a great find. Sportsgirl, who knew? Haha.

  • Ashley Rose

    Love this outfit! I have been looking at this skirt for ages and you just sold it to me as this looks fabulous!!! That hat too!!

    • Thanks Ash. This skirt has been in HIGH rotation since I bought it home with me. Something about the full skirt and the leather makes me a happy lady.
