Around the month of July, as a typical fashion lover, I started to focus on my A/W wardrobe. The usual pieces popped in to my mind as essentials: The statement knit, A chunky wedge boot, a peg-leg trouser, but something special emerged, which I decided was a must have piece for my look: The black leather dirndl. The skirt in question was from the humble M&S and a decent price at £99, the countdown had begun and the skirt was destined to be mine. Unfortunately the dream ended as a nightmare, after several months of delays and push backs the once stunning sleek black skirt (obviously a press sample) had transformed into a kind of ugly burgundy/brown monstrosity with a hideous hem. Leather skirt obsession over.
