boot blacking

Hey look, new skirt!  There’s a really cool vintage shop that I walk past every time I go to and from the university and while I’ve mostly resisted temptation, I unfortunately happened to be a bit too near it while I was feeling anxious…  That being said, I’ve wanted a black pleated skirt to replace that old one I had ages ago, so it’s mostly a practical purchase.  I still technically have that skirt and it just needs a little mending, but it was always pretty tight in the waist so buying a fairly cheap replacement that fits better felt pretty reasonable.  (The other thing I bought was… less reasonable…)
