Black Leather Mini Skirt

I've been looking for a  good quality leather pencil mini-skirt that I can wear with anything from sneakers to pumps. I really appreciate a great quality leather skirt, but most of them come with a high price tag. A poor fabrication on a leather skirt can easily make an outfit look cheap or tacky. It's very important (at least for me) that the leather is soft and not too shiny and the construction is of high quality, regardless the price.
After looking for almost a year (I hate to pay retail), I found it last week on Ebay!!!  It is by Shipley & Halmos; retail was $395 (brand new and tags attached) and I won this piece for only $50. The quality is superb, perfectly lined and carefully stitched. Soft Italian lambskin leather with asymmetric zipper and zipper pocket. I can't wait for this Fall; you bet I will be wearing it with everything.
People ask me how I can find deals like this on Ebay or Vintage shops..I just tell them that patience is the key, and also experience. I have been shopping on Ebay for 10 years and NO REGRETS.
Well, I couldn't wait for Fall, so I wore it this past week.

Yo he estado buscando por una mini-falda tubo de cuero, pero de buena calidad. Desafortunadamente, la mayoría de ellas vienen acompañadas con una etiqueta de precio muy alto.
Una falda de cuero de fabricación barata puede hacernos lucir muy corriente o vulgar.
Es muy importante para mi, que la fabricación sea meticulosa y que el acabado del cuero no sea suave y no muy brillante.
Después de buscar casi por un año (aborrezco pagar el precio normal), la encontré en Ebay. Elaborada bajo la marca de Shipley & Halmos, el precio normal es $395.00, yo solo pague $50.00 y llego a mi puerta nueva con las etiquetas de venta. Que suerte no? Esta perfectamente confeccionada con paquete y abertura asimétrica. Tengan la seguridad que yo voy a usar y abusar esta faldita este otoño e invierno.
Aveces me preguntan como me las arreglo para conseguir oportunidades como estas en Ebay y tiendas de mercancia retro o antiguas. Pero la respuesta es muy simple, la experiencia y la paciencia son las llaves del éxito encontrando calidad con pocos recursos.
Bueno..pero por supuesto, no me pude esperar para el otoño y decidí usarla esta semana.

Gingham Dress For Sunrise

What a wonderful morning we had today. Before we headed to breakfast, we stopped for few pictures in Old Salem. It was really early and my hair was not completely dry. I really don't like to mess with the blow dryer when the weather is hot, but my hair respond ok with natural air.
We love the warm sun in the morning or late afternoon. It is great for pictures and the weather is best around that time of the day, and for a bright morning like this, I decided to wear a lots of pink. So far, I am enjoying this girly and colorful outfit. It just makes me smile even more.

Fringe Black Skirt-Chambray Shirt

Oh boy!! I had fun with this Zara fringe skirt. The day was cloudy and humid, but not so hot. I decided to wear this fun skirt with H&M chambray, vintage belt, Marc Jacobs platforms and vintage Carlos Falchi bag. You must wear a fringe skirt with the right attitude. It has so much movement, so swinging those hips is I even felt like shaking it a little bit here and there.
I am just so happy that  I started feeling good again. Thanks to God for his blessings and for bringing this good feeling back to my shoulder.
 I must share another blessing...yesterday, my sweetheart bought me a Nikon D5100and a couple lenses. How awesome is that? Today, I played a little bit with it for the first time. So, the settings are not the best for a cloudy day, but I will get the hang of this baby soon. I do want to use "A" mode and manual as much as I can in order to master it. For now, pictures are not perfect, but much better than my other Iphone4's. I can't wait to be chasing my dogs for some fun shots as well.
