I wore this to: add a little color to my life!

Patience really is a virtue when it comes to thrift shopping. I had been stalking this skirt for a little while this spring, but just wasn't quite sold on the color. So I waited. And I didn't buy it. And then a couple of weekends ago, Chris and I were at a Goodwill out in the middle of nowhere, and hey! I found this purple suede miniskirt! For four bucks! That's a pretty satisfying feeling. And while I'm still looking for the perfect real leather jacket to call my own, I'll take what I can get.
