pleated envy



YSL Leather A-Line Skirt - $5,285 VS. Forever 21 Pleated Leather Skirt - $22

See this lovely pleated leather skirt? I tried it on months ago at Forever 21 & decided against it.  Eventually, I started seeing the skirt pop up around the fashion blogging community and instantly had a case of blogger-envy.  Especially when Caitlin over at Style Within Reach paired it with a polka dot blouse I also own {last seen here}, and Julia at Gal Meets Glam, paired it with a sleeveless blouse.  Fast forward to Wednesday evening.  I walked back into Forever 21 & what do I spy smashed between a bandage skirt & a sequin cropped sweater...this skirt! Sold out online. Last one in the store & in my size. It's fate, I tell you, fate.
