Wearing a leather pencil skirt

I love leather pencil skirts. Or faux leather pencil skirts actually. I don’t think I can count them on two hands, the ones I own. I have always loved pencil skirts, I can remember I wore nothing else when I was about 18,19. And later in my early mid 30s I also wore them a lot. They make me feel super feminine. And what has Gaultier got to do with it you might think. Well, let me explain. When I bought the skirt and the sweater( in two different stores) I knew I would want to wear them together. It made me think of the very early collections of Jean Paul Gaultier, known for his use of stripes. And that reminded me of a denim biker jacket I bought when I was 21. I bought a Jean Paul Gaultier jacket back then! In Arnhem! It was to small because it was the only one, can’t remember what I paid for it. But I wanted it. Nobody(in Arnhem that is) knew then who Jean Paul Gaultier was, no one but me! And what was I happy with my jacket! At that time I had a rather turbulent life and I lost the jacket somehow. But I had to think about this when I pictured this combination.

Leather pencil skirt and stripes

I used to wear this look al the time. Not especially with a striped sweater, but a black pencil skirt and a sweater and boots.(prefeably all in black) That was what I wore for years. And don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t out of lack of imagination, I just loved to look like that. So wearing the look I show you today feels fabulous. I still love this look and it feels close to myself. I love all my other outfits too, I mean, if I don’t feel good in an outfit I will not wear it. I don’t put on clothes only because walking outside naked is strange, it has to be a reflection of who I am! And this is so me!leather pencil skirtleather pencil skirtleather pencil skirtleather pencil skirtleather pencil skirtleather pencil skirtleather pencil skirtleather pencil skirt

    You can really tell just how comfortable you feel in this outfit and how well it represents you as a person. You look so happy and relaxed.

    Super chic. I agree, it reminds me of Gautier as well.
