One of my most outstanding wardrobe pieces has to be this Adam shearling and leather circle skirt I snagged off the Shopbop website. I saw this piece when it first popped up in the new arrivals section and I wanted it badly. However, I decided to wait it out and literally stalked the skirt until it got marked down. Luckily, they had one left in the size I thought I needed. I knew this skirt might not be the most flattering or slimming due to the sheer volume, but I adored it anyway. When I received it I was ecstatic. It came on a skirt hanger complete with little pieces of matching leather backed shearling in the clips so the hanger did not leave marks on the skirt. Don't you hate when that happens? It was as beautiful as I imagined it would be and after seeing so many photos of it going down the runway it felt great to have it in my collection. Who knew shearling and leather would work in a skirt so well?
I kept the look simple because I wanted to emphasize the skirt. Since the skirt is so full I wanted to keep it slim and form-fitting on top. I paired the skirt with this Splendid turtleneck. It is an old standby of mine and I believe that Splendid makes the best basic turtlenecks. They are around $50 and they do not stretch out. I own one in charcoal gray as well.
For accessories I wore my cashmere-lined leather gloves again. I liked the line the gloves created with the turtleneck because they were both the same color black. These Prada mary janes added the perfect pop of color to this outfit. I always wanted a wine colored pair of suede shoes and I was lucky enough to get these for Christmas. They are classics I think and perfect for this time of year. I was really impressed with a lot of the Prada shoes from the fall 2010 collection.
