Blast from the past

Check out this ultra mini high-waisted red leather zip-up bodycon skirt! (It's hard to tell but the waist is V shaped. )

I'd totally forgotten I'd picked it out of my mom's old wardrobe a while ago, until I read a post about zippers at stylebytes... at which point I jumped up and immediately went rummaging through my box of crap under the bed (don't tell me you don't have one of those either). The story is that my dad got it as a gift for mama in Hawaii back when they were we're talking eighties, literally. And it comes with this matching big shouldered leather jacket which is soo Michelle Pfeiffer in Into the Night it's kinda laughable. Anyhow it's super super tight and the leather is so soft it really feels nice like a second skin.

Oh please you MUST somehow find a way to wear it! It's too gorgeous to be stored underneath your bed in a "box of crap" and never been worn! I'd be utterly happy to find a piece of clothing as cool as this!

This thing is art. But insanely small. I just love the way the zipper starts at the bottom. And the colour is fantastic. K
