Miroslava Duma got me onto leather shorts. I couldn't' stop thinking about them after seeing her sporting a brown A-line pair at New York Fashion week earlier this year. Epic perfection if there was such a thing.
I managed to track down a pair at an op shop off Sydney Road in Brunswick a month or so ago. Much to my horror when I returned to purchase them they were all but gone. Because who wouldn't' want to snap up a $60 pair of vintage black leather shorts ? Silly silly girl I am.
Since then, I have yet to find anything close to what I am after. For now I will just have to make do with the burnt orange leather skirt I managed to find last week...and live in hope that come winter I will be able to, a) afford a pair of Alexander Wang's leather shorts or, b) track down the buyer of those op shop shorts and offer them a pretty penny in exchange for what was rightfully mine.
And it's not the weather. Hand me my leather
