Every time I visit my parent's house, I like to take a little shopping trip into my mother's closet. Is she one of those super stylish mom's whose closet I envy? Not really. Can I occasionally dig out treasures from it's deepest, darkest corners? Sometimes. I like to compare her closet to Ross Dress for Less. If you're willing to put in the time to search, the reward can be very sweet.
Exhibit A. The leather skirt. How I have only yet to find this treasure baffles me. I think the fact that it was in the same bag as a pair of 1980's, polyester pants is what discouraged me from finding it before. Not this time though. This time it is mine. Muahahaha.
I wore my
mom's leather skirt to dinner a few weekends ago in Vegas. I kept it simple with a chambray shirt and black heels so that the beautiful, buttery leather could be the star.
