I really enjoy going around and browsing the local thrift stores. As you can imagine, Portland has some really hip ones but I tend to stick with the Goodwills or Salvation Army's. Since I don't know many people here I am using this as an opportunity to reinvent myself in a sense. I would have never worn a floor legnth skirt in the past because of my short legs and wide hips but after seeing them all over the internet I decided to start slow with a hi-lo number (see below). After searching far and wide I found this pink pleated beauty FOR HALF PRICE (3.99). So, it was a done deal. Love at first fitting.
