Comment on Style Trial | Patent leather clothing by Claire.

Mostly what seems to be the problem with this style for me is that you would get so sweaty underneath it. Since I live in Colorado, even the thought of wearing a patent-leather pencil skirt makes me start overheating – any stylishness would be offset by the fact that your legs and “undercarriage” would be totally disgustingly sweaty all day long! And in winter, too. The stuff doesn’t breathe – you’d get sweaty even in cold weather. I sort of like the look, but it’s just completely out of the question for the climate I live in.

Style Trial | The Mullet Mini Skirt
It’s fine by me. It’s rather more subtle than many of its brethren, so it seems like less of a “Look at me! I’m ON TREND!” and more just a detail that adds visual interest.

I actually think those shoes are kinda cool, in an art-y way. Wouldn’t ever wear them, though.

Yes, Kate Moss does look a little oversexy for a royal event, and the dress is not very becoming on her either. Zhang Ziyi looks especially nice.
