Classic piece – why I love (black) leather skirts

Not only am I practically obsessed with leather jackets, I also have a penchant for leather skirts. In contrast to regular pencil skirts, they have a style which fashion people classify as ‘edgy’. It is effortless. Cool. You look like, you didn´t try too hard. Urban chic. Common thing. Unexciting?
Not to me. To my taste leather skirts are like a Rolex to some business man. It´s my status symbol. As a young woman, I feel like this leather skirt is just a free(er) version of a pencil skirt. Rocking it, I don´t look like a business woman but it could possibly lead me everywhere. Wheter it is the next party at some random bar, meeting friends in a café, visiting a new place and even going to work. I´m fierce. It always gives me a sense of security to feel put together. You could also combine this skirt with a basic white T and it wouldn´t change my mind no whit about it´s versatile function.
Ultimately, fashion is freedom to me. To project a picture of myself out there, which is plain simple: be who you are.

P.S.: This time, I also uploaded a few Outtakes. Don´t be JUST serious.

Pocahontas meets leo print

Pocahontas is one of my favorite Disney movies of all times. Her exotic beauty, not to mention her incredible talent to sing make her a special charakter in a moving story about two different (cultural) worlds that clash into one another. Although it´s scene plays back in the days of conquering new empires, it couldn´t be more recent: every day in the newspaper we face the problem of wars, mostly arising through different beliefs.

Obviously, I´m no second Pocahontas. A beige poncho paired with fake fur makes no exotic beauty. My look is actually quite casual under this “It-Piece”. I´m wearing a pair of stretchy brown pants, with a leo print shirt and brown boots. You could wear this to most work places, have coffee with your friends or even going into a museum on a rainy day. This look is neither Berlin, nor London. Is it Moscow? Maybe?! I´ll leave it up to your imagination.
