I somehow stumbled upon a pair of perforated leather shorts I bought last summer, couldn’t fit into and never wore. Tags still attached. I wondered if my ass could shimmy into them and make it work and by the beard of Zeus, they fit like a glove. I made my beautiful model friend Ashley try the shorts on too and they fit her. She’s like a size 24 and some perfect model height so you can imagine my excitement when they fit her too. I’m going to let her borrow them for her trip to cali and start the sisterhood of the traveling leather shorts.
Like fate, the perfect off-the-shoulder top entered my life at the moment when I needed a perfect flowy top to fit with this tight pair of leather shorts–and I loved the balance. I wore this look for my friend’s bridal shower and meet up with family for lunch. I traded out the heels for flats though–too hard to traipse around town in heels. I’m finally feeling my age.
