Military School Girl

Last year I spotted an incredible streetstyle look in Lucky magazine's "Fashion Copycat" section. I know, I am starting to sound like a broken record...  She was wearing a pleated leather miniskirt and was all wrapped up for a chilly day in Paris.  Well from that point on I went on a rampage looking for one of those darn things because I pretty much will wear anything Lucky tells me too.  Finally my thrift universe was in my rising son (or whatever astrology terminology you're supposed to use) and I spot.ted this 100% Leather Pleated Tennis Skirt by Cuir du Monde for $14.99 at Salvation Army.

In trend with the all-weather leather look from Spring, pleated leather skirts made it big this Fall thanks to longstanding favorite designers like Proenza Schouler's Fall 2010 RTW collection or my recent discovery, 19-year old Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenco who presented his first collection at this years Fall Fashion Week in Paris.  Some of my favorite ready-to-wear versions are by Philip Lim, DVF, and Alice and Olivia for their tiny pleats and higher waists. On the streetstyle front fashion bloggers have been obsessed with a similar version by Zara.  A little tough mixed with a little sweet seems like a pretty solid equation to me.   

I pulled my look together with my thrifted Breton Striped Top $5 (last seen here and here) because I'm obsessed with this top and willing to channel my inner Jean Seberg whenever possible, my thrifted Zara Military Blazer $7.98, thrifted Mother of Pearl Ring $4 (last seen here), thrifted Bow & Pearl Earrings $2, Forever 21 booties, and my Fall purse staple a thrifted No-Name Top-Handle Leather Satchel (last seen here). I take that purse everywhere.

Do you like leather shorts, leather mini skirt, or neither for Fall?
