The other day I was talking to a friend about leather skirts. What is it about leather skirts always drawing the wrong kind of attention? Why do people think they are "sexy"? Leather skirts being associated with sex reminds me of a recent conversation I had with another friend of mine, who thinks that over-the-knee boots (with or without heels) are only to be worn by prostitutes. How narrow-minded! To me, my black leather skirt is one of the most practical pieces of clothing I have: it looks powerful, fresh, modern and edgy, it is easy to dress up or down, it goes with anything, and it is very comfortable.
This is what I wore on Monday:

I love the shapes (or shapelessness) of these outfits, and oh, those shoes! I really want a pair of chunky yet feminine ankle boots! The editorial is called Silhouettes, the photos are by Nadir, styling is by Paolo Turina, and the whole thing can be found in the September issue of Amica.

This particular kittie, however, would certainly not be sending me flowers even if she could. She is not that fond of me right now.
Poor Illusia had to be taken to the vet on Monday because she seems to have a problem with her skin. I feel so bad for her, having to wear this awful collar, even though it is for her own good. She is disliking it a lot more than I am, I am sure.
This is what I wore today. I forgot to take a close-up picture of the brooch - it is a green butterfly, a wonderful flea market find from a couple of weeks back. The top and the dress are from H&M, the tights are from Indiska, and the shoes by Vagabond.

These are all great dresses, no doubt about it. The question is: will I ever wear them? I spent the entire spring and summer thrifting wonderful clothes, but I have not really gotten the chance to wear them much at all. After all, there are only so many clothes one can wear per each day. Would it be wrong of me to just want to own these dresses, even if I know that I might not wear them? Surely I should tell Minni's sister to take them to the flea market, as I am convinced there are a lot of people out there who would get more wear out of these wonderful items than myself.
Take this Vuokko dress above, or the Marimekko one below. These are fabulous dresses, right? But would I really wear the orange stripes as boldly as they deserve to be worn? And could I pull off the granny-chic look in the purple dress without looking as if I have escaped from another decade?
Or what about this one then? Where could I really wear this?
This is what I wore today, and looking at the outfit I chose for myself this morning, and comparing it to the photos above, I wonder again: How do we choose our styles? Do we choose them at all, or do we just drift into wearing certain pieces more than others?

These images were my favourites. For some reason I have a feeling that biking used to be a lot more exciting and fun than what it is now...
"What? What's your problem?"
This is what I wore yesterday. I am not giving up on florals, not just yet...
