    I LOVE you in black and red. Wow! Beautiful blouse. I like the length of the skirt and the style on you. It somehow feels new to my eye although I did see you in similar style before.

    Perfect accessorising :-)

    The blouse looks great styled like this.  Also like your pointy toed flats.  I've been looking for some pointy toed styles but haven't found anything yet (I admit I haven't looked that hard though).

    Ooh, a little bit of your Russian secret agent side is coming out today, I think! The red, snake, and leather are a little dangerous, especially with your restrained and demure style mixed in there as well. Love!

    Love this with the pointy flats! The blouse looks nice tucked in.

  • Sylvie replied 6 years ago

    Those earrings are *too* cool!  I have a snake ring I bought once for a costume party - perhaps it needs a new home?

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Rae is right -- the look is classic, but deadly!

    I saw the skirt in Nordie's, and it looks terrific on you!

    Dear Goldenpig:  I haven't had time to comment recently, but I made time to comment on your latest set of outfits.  The pencil skirt/shirt are amazing, but that blue dress you posted also took my breath away.  There were other outfits that were amazing.  I wish I could comment on all of them.

    I reallllllllllllly love this. "Snakey red and black." A great application of demure bombshell to rocker chic. You know, "how to make it your own."

  • Asingh replied 6 years ago

    What a sleek outfit! Super-stylish!

  • lyn* replied 6 years ago

    That is a beautiful leather skirt on you - who knew that leather tough girl skirt could be so stylish? (You did, of course!)

  • vibgyor004 replied 6 years ago

    Great...everything in this outfit is soooo perfect! The red blouse with snake print on it is looking very beautiful and with that leather skirt...soo stylish!

  • goldenpig replied 6 years ago

    Thanks so much everyone! This is one of my favorite outfits in a while!
    The leather skirt is new, although I do also have a black ponte pencil skirt with faux leather vertical piping. This is different enough to justify keeping though, right? I have a cinnamon leather A line skirt but have been wanting a black leather pencil skirt for some time. Especially after seeing MaryK wearing black leather skirts and tops to the workplace! Hopefully the snake and leather isn't too rocker/risque for work. It's pretty covered up though with a classic silhouette--typical demure bombshell!
    Ornella, I agree--red is definitely my favorite color! 
    Sara--I hope you find some pointy flats. They seem to be much more common now. I had a pair of very pointy kitten heels from Banana Republic from the 90's, and finally just passed them on and now pointy is in again, haha.
    Rae--I agree, I do feel rather secret agent sophisticate in this...I love playing a Russian spy.
    Thanks Ceit, Beth Ann and Asingh!
    Sylvie--I would love to have a matching snake ring! I was just wishing this morning that I had a snake pendant to match my earrings.
    Gabrielle and vibgyor004--welcome and thanks so much for commenting on my outfits! Hope to see yours too!
    Rachy--yes, DB with a rocker streak.
    Lyn--I bet you could mix in tough girl with your fun flirty style too!

  • AviaMariah replied 6 years ago

    This is one of my favorite outfits that I've seen you wear. Very spunky!

  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago

    This is elegant yet a little edgy.  I like.

  • replied 6 years ago

    An adorable look.

  • Day Vies replied 6 years ago

    There is a rocker chick in there somewhere! When I think of your style I think of organic patterns and high contrast whether that be with color, pattern or shine. This is something new and I like it. The shoes are both ladylike and rocker. I like this.

    I love it!

    I've really been liking the red and wine colors you have been wearing lately, they are lovely on you.
