Remix Files: The faux leather mini (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

 I remember like it was yesterday, standing in Matalan's changing rooms, trying this faux leather skirt on and thinking to myself 'Will i actually wear it?'
Turns out it was a very worthy investment (even more so for its very small price tag of around £12 i think at the time) I have worn this skirt so so much over the 18 months. Its such a versatile great working piece that adds funk and edge to any outfit and a great all-season item.
Here's a few ways i've styled it over the last year and a half, and i haven't exhausted it yet either. Faux leather is a staple in my wardrobe, and this skirt is up there for me with ripped jeans and a trench coat.
I can't believe its yet to be worn with stripes or leopard print.. i have been missing out big time there! I think you may be seeing even more of this skirt over the next year again.
As for now i am absolutely smothered with a stinking cold and only my harry potter sweatshirt and joggers willl do. Outfit post friendly my face is not right now.. my poor nose...Rudolph[h comes to mind ;)
 With a mustard shirt and gold trimmed booties

 In summer for a boho/girly vibe with a kimono and heels

 With a fedora, fierce booties and a gilet

Casual with a sweatshirt and biker boots 

I absolutely love this skirt, juts so much potential!

  4. Get well soon Rachel!! That skirt has earnt its place in your wardrobe, and you've styled it lots of different ways. It looks fab on you! I don't own any faux leather, I think it's a texture thing? I'm a bit funny about fabrics and the way they feel. x

    Hope you feel better, soon. Happy Valentine's weekend! <3 Ada.
