Also, I think I should hunt down more leather garments. I stumbled across this one in a local thrift shop for $5 and almost passed it up because leather isn't my typical style...I tend to feel like a poser in athletic gear and "tough girl" clothes, like leather. However, the fact it was mustard yellow softened it up enough for me. Now, I really like it and I feel rather powerful (?) in it. As if there's a certain attitude associated with a leather pencil skirt that one can acquire merely by donning the piece. Who knows? Now, I'm on the search for the perfect leather shorts. I might not feel quite ready for the look, but one only grows by trying things out.
