I Forgot How Much Pleather Skirts Rule

I will bake my butt in a pleather skirt this summer.

I know flannel shirts get a lot of automatic 90s recognition, but the mini-skirt in plasticized textures was a total fixture back then as well. Peep queen of cool Kim Gordon, rocking a pink patent number with a two-tone blue shirt in the Bull in the Heather. I watched this video today and suddenly became stricken with the need to own one.

Which got me thinking about other great moments in the patent skirt trend history, and I immediately thought of one of my favorite outfits from the movie "Clueless." It's a short scene where Dionne rocks an orange skirt with a blue tee and vest. Killer, right?  

The more I think about it, the more I realize I am ready to bring this back. Will my thighs suffer in the summer heat? PROBABLY but sowhatwhocares, I am ready to make a commitment. 

Finding them is not going to be easy; eBay here I come! I will keep you posted with my progress.
