One of my favorite ways to acquire new clothes is by shopping in my Mama’s and Halmoni’s closets. Free vintage! I snagged this skirt – a pleated green wonder from circa 1980 – from Halmoni.

Wearing an ankle-length 100% wool skirt got me thinking – why am I wearing short skirts in the winter? Why is that popular? Long is deffo the way to go. It’s like wearing a blanket on one’s legs. 

Ever wonder how the Regency and Victorian chicks kept warm? Two words: full. skirts.
