Man, do I love this long leather skirt. So dramatic, but also incredibly practical for the long Minnesota winter. Pair it with boots and my silk longjohns, I am WINDPROOF!

    Oh, lovely! You look so sophisticated and elegant. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

    Wow. That skirt is amazing. So bold and modern, yet feminine. Love the scarf too, and don't even get me started on those shoes!

    ooh fabulous! …that white snow just makes everything POP! Love the scarf!

    I am loving this outfit, Sal! That scarf is fierce with the rest of the outfit–such a fantastic touch!

    Oh Sal, this is one of my favorite looks ever. The leather skirt is just superb!

    Beautiful! I love outfits when you wear the scarf like that, but I've always meant to ask: do you have it secured in some way? If so, how? If not, why does it not fall off your shoulder? It's beautifully draped, but I just don't think I could wear this without the scarf driving me nuts from falling off or shifting!

    I wanna know how you are managing outside with that wisp of a sweater and a little scarf! And I do love the scarf!

    The skirt makes a statement without any words. I "hear" it loud and clear & it's all feminine and strong!

    Lauren: SO funny you should ask. Generally, I do secure my wraps with a brooch, or even a hidden safety pin. But today, I didn't, and I spent all damned day throwing the loose end back over my shoulder!

    While I don't always look at your style and think, "ooh, I'd wear that," I pretty much always think you look good… but sometimes I think you look just INCREDIBLE. Like really, really pretty and put-together. This outfit? One of those times. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow – you are right about that skirt making your windproof – and I'll bet it weighs enough that you couldn't be blown away in a hurricane either!! But definitely a major 'warrior woman' fashion statement. Quick – find a sword.

    Extraordinary color combinations; you'd think the shade of the skirt would make the top pop (and it does), but it has a surprising vibrancy of it's own!

    The leather skirt slays me. I have an unhealthy love for all things leather. You've taken something rough 'n' tough and turned it into a very classy piece.

    The word "elegant" keeps coming up. The long skirt creates that feeling, so different from a mini-skirt, which is more flippy and fun. And yet, I keep reading that long skirts are "frumpy." This doesn't look frumpy. It looks…well, elegant.

    I love how soft and feminine the lines are here with the tough girl leopard and leather, gorgeous contrast!

  16. SR@MyStyle

    Hi there-a very stylish and chic winter cosy outfit, love the scarf and skirt!!

  17. Angela Pea

    What an excellent and PRACTICAL winter outfit. Bonus points for style and grace!!

    Sal, I found a beautiful forest green leather skirt much like this at the thrift store today. I kept thinking about your skirt, and how great it looked on you, and wondering if I could in any way, shape, or form, pass the green one off as "vegan." I figured not, so I passed.

  19. Sal

    Charlotte: Oh dear! "Recycled," sure … but you're right, probably couldn't do "vegan." ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That is a rockin' outfit! You know what's funny, though? I was reading your archives where you say you just don't do the "fashion pouty face" very well…

    That first photo almost didn't look like YOU! I like the smiling ones much better. You have one of the best all-time smiles. ๐Ÿ™‚ But in that 1st photo you look kind of pissed! LOL

  21. Sal

    Laikabear: Just trying to mix it up. I get comments about how I look the same in every photo, too, so I've been trying to inject some variety in poses and facial expressions.

    ooh I am late on this one but you just look so vibrant. It's sort of like you're saying with this outfit.. "go screw, winter." ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love how you fight away the puffy-down-coat-syndrome of the depths of winter with this fiery little number!
