"I painted myself metallic
until I was shining,
and shredded myself into fine tinsel
to be your silver lining"
~ Peyton Leigh Stille
I feel I really have, as the poem above says, painted myself metallic until I was shining, in this gorgeous silver skirt. Designed by Ireland's Emma Manley, it is made from the softest leather and features a scalloped hemline, a very flattering high waist, and is an Autumn/Winter friendly midi-length. It's a stand-out piece that shines brightly and makes a big, bold statement.
I styled my silver skirt with my all time favourite top, Bella Freud's iconic 'Je T'aime Jane' jumper. It is a modern classic that goes with everything I already own, and is, hands down, one of the best purchases I've ever made. Manley's 'Maisey' leather bag (yes, my favourite Designer now does bags; gorgeous bags that are covered in Manley's signature studded embellishment. Blogged here), and a pair of cute silver flats, added an extra layer of cool to an already super-cool outfit.
