WIW 7/25: Secret Agent Sophisticate--NAS L148 oxblood leather jacket & Halogen tweed skirt

Shamelessly stealing one of the terms Rae came up with in this thread about new style monikers. This is a variation on an outfit I wore when I was pregnant that made me feel like a Russian Spy (7) or Anna Karenina (8). I substituted my new sleek oxblood leather jacket from NAS for the burgundy fur-trimmed cardigan, and swapped in my burgundy patent quilted hearts satchel for the purse. I may look like I'm on call at the hospital, but it's all a cover for my secret agent work. And the ballerina daughter and cat? Decoys. Watch out--I'm onto you....

Lafayette 148 NAS burgundy leather jacket and black shell. Feeling a little guilty that this jacket cost as much as my wedding dress! On the other hand, I only wore the wedding dress once. I think CPW will be a lot better on this jacket!
Halogen burgundy tweed skirt--from last year's Half Yearly Sale. I actually bought two-a size 8 to wear while pregnant and a size 6 for afterward (they were $45). This is the debut of the 6. Cheaper than altering! This actually goes with the jacket better than the office doormat/loincloth skirt (another great DH-ism) that he hated (9).
Clarks brown pumps--really old
Ann Taylor burgundy and gold necklace--also really old
Forever 21 bracelet--this cost $10 so the CPW must be pennies by now!

    Ooh, so flattered that you would use that moniker! You look very Mrs. Smith - like a totally competent wife and mom who happens to moonlight as a spy. :-D

    I'm crazy about your tweed pencil skirt and burgundy leather jacket!! Your best look yet for me. Your background story adds to the fun.

    This is simply stunning.  And burgundy really suits you.  For that matter, you wear so many colors well!

    That skirt is so much nicer than the loincloth. Looks great!

    Nice to see the jacket in action, great spy outfit.  And look at that print in the bag, at first I thought it was quilted but it's hearts, how fun!

    We just watched Anna Karenina! I hereby crown you Queen Anna Karenina!

    The new leather jacket is PERFECT with the tweed skirt :)
