School Skirts and Leather. Flashing back to warm weather and content photos I found digging. Let’s talk a little bit about this stunna of an outfit real quick.

Alex Duffy of Duffy Dossier — School Skirts and Leather

I have to admit, I’m not one for skirts. I don’t know what it is? I have plenty of them, but I’m never magnetically drawn to them when I style. I think it’s a personal issue — I’m short, and if the skirt doesn’t fit in all the right places, I’m out.

This one, however! Was a fantastic find from none other than Talbots KIDS. Yes, I meant to type Talbots KIDS. Like the KIDS store Talbots had (and was more successful in the 90s).

Wanna know a secret? I used to work at Talbots Kids in high school. I spent almost 2 years there! And as I mentioned earlier, being short (and small), you get to take advantage of KIDDO sized clothing. Which is probably why this skirt fits me so well 😉

The skirt is Talbots Kids, faux leather jacket from Forever21, the sunglassesВ are Nasty Gal,
clutch is Highway Robbery Vintage and the strand of faux pearls is (big girl) Talbots.

xo, Duffy
