Yesterday it was Mr Husband's Birthday. Happy Birthday my love! To celebrate we went to Sainsbury's during the day (like you do) and then my dear Mama baby-sat for us in the evening so we could go to the cinema to watch the second part of The Hobbit.
In honour of Mr Husband's birthday I decided to treat myself to a new skirt, bought whilst at Sainsbury's. I seem to get quite a lot of clothing from Sainsbury's, they do some great stuff. Anyway, this time I plumped for something a little different for me. I'm used to wearing a pencil skirt and have many in different colours and fabrics, but this time I was somehow compelled to buy one in a kind of rusty red leather-type material. It isn't real leather, in fact it's machine washable (yay) but to be honest that makes me like it all the more!
Probably one of the things I like the most about it is that it's quite slimming. Not being a particularly stretchy fabric it can REALLY hold everything in place, in fact, I am pleased to report that despite buying this post-Christmas pig out it's actually a size 12! My first size 12 for about fifteen years! Yay!
Here's what it looked like on.....apologies for the slightly fuzzy picture, I seem to be having some issues with my camera at the moment - I suspect a small, sticky fingered person may have gained access at some point....
I decided to wear it with quite a simple black jumper as, in better light, it's actually quite a bold colour. I'm really pleased with it, a bit of a different style choice for me. Mr Husband says it's quite saucy, but he's a secret perv, so we can't go by what he says....
It was originally labelled as being £22, but is currently on sale for £11, can't complain about that!
So....what do you think? Any suggestions on colours that would go well would be most welcome! Anyone else wear leather or leather-look clothing? I have an image of Ross from Friends in my head, so any tips that would avoid me having to make a talcum powder paste to free my legs would be great ;)
P.S On an entirely unrelated note, and hence not worth an entire post, I've decided to move the buttons of my favourite blogs to give them a page of their own. Click on the Blog Roll tab above for a little look. If anyone is interested in a button swap, please shout! Over and out xx
