Last week I picked up a handful of used clothing from my local Goodwill. Among the lot was a vintage Berman’s black leather skirt. The skirt is in pretty decent condition. Just missing a button in the back. Vintage Bermans black leather skirt

Last week I also joined and made my first purchase. The items I purchased arrived today. A pair of black knee high stiletto faux leather boots with gold stud accents, and a black faux leather bag also with gold accents. There is no way you will find me venturing out into public wearing 5.5 inch stiletto knee high boots. I love how they look but I’m not into suffering to look good. So these are for my play-modeling sessions. The bag I’m sure will get some use. It’s much bigger than I expected but that’s not a huge problem.

So I decided to have a little fun today with the black leather skirt from Goodwill and the knee high stiletto boots from JustFab. I paired the skirt with a red Cold Creek top which I also picked up from the Goodwill, and a black blazer (also from Goodwill). The particular red top black leather skirt look is more on the mature side. I’m not exactly 25 so a mature look works for me. I’m not sure the boots would be appropriate if I was wearing this outfit to work. For me it’s fine because I work from home; but if I had to go out to work then perhaps the boots would be a bit much. black leather skirt red top black blazer black stiletto knee high boots fake gold necklace

Overall I liked the look I put together today. I’d say if someone is wondering if a red top black leather skirt combination works the answer is yes. Of course it will also depend upon the style of the top and the style of the skirt; but you can definitely work a red top black leather skirt look.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
