Anita in Brocade

I love this: a tough leather jacket paired with a ruffle blouse and brocade skirt.

So what is brocade exactly?
According to Wikipedia: Brocade is a class of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabrics, often made in colored silks and with or without gold and silver threads. The name, related to the same root as the word "broccoli", comes from Italian broccato meaning "embossed cloth," originally past participle of the verb broccare "to stud, set with nails," from brocco, "small nail," from Latin broccus, "projecting, pointed."

I'm not sure if this skirt fits the exact definition of brocade but when it looks this good, who cares?
