Hard and Soft

I love the mixture of hard and soft created with a full skirt (in my signature leopard print of course) and a faux leather jacket.

Also, in unrelated but huge news, I designed a course on women in early modern England and, in their infinite wisdom, the history department selected it to be taught as a junior seminar! So this gal is going to be teaching her very own class at Yale!!!! I'm seriously over the moon about this!!!! In the fall I will be serving as a Teaching Fellow as usual but, come Spring 2012, I will be teaching a seminar I've designed entitled Queens and Commoners, Witches and Scolds, Godly Women and Whores: Women, Politics and Society in Early Modern England. Sounds saucy, no?

On the outfit: I love the skirt!! It's such a great shape, and the more conservative length and cut is a nice contrast to the leopard.
