walk this way

I love to wear the unexpected, the imperfect. Anything that looks too styled and/or on-trend is not for me. What's the point of loving and following fashion if you aren't going to be an original? That was essentially the inspiration behind this ensemble. I wanted to pair together pieces that you wouldn't normally combine to create a look that oozes coolness and confidence. The short sleeve leather jacket is super edgy, while the midi-length pencil skirt is more conservative and polished. I adore how the bold striped print pops against the otherwise all-black look -- and, last but not least, these strappy black stilettos are oh-so badass.

Anyone got a motorcycle I can borrow?
