Pleats and Leh-tha


I have Stella from Project Runway in my head saying, “I love leh-tha”.

The first time I saw this skirt, it was in bright turquoise and I absolutely loved the idea of such a tough fabric in such an unexpected and flirty silhouette. The color wasn’t right for me, so I passed, but it stayed on my mind. Then a few months later, it popped up in black. Perfect!


Leather can be expensive to alter, and it can be difficult to find a tailor who will work with it, so a leather skirt that fits right off the rack is a spectacular find. I can’t wait to wear it with silk blouses and into fall with layered sweaters.


This metal collar necklace seemed like a natural pairing with the leather skirt. Both items are tough in material, but sweet in design.
