Bought some skirts on recently. Among the lot was a red and white polka dot skirt (found here) I paid $13.99 for the skirt.

Knowing there are people who would never wear something that costs $13.99, I’m tempted to feel embarrassed to admit how cheap this skirt is, but you know what, it’s what I can afford. And I refuse to be influenced to feel embarrassed by the cheap clothes that I own and wear.

The fact is, I don’t have money to spend on clothes right now so $13.99 works for me if it gets me something I can wear that doesn’t look like it was put together with zero care or interest. And while this skirt isn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, it doesn’t look like it was put together with zero care or interest.

Wearing a leotard by itself as a top isn’t something I was comfortable doing when I was a teenager and could get away with it. I’m not about to start doing it now that I’m older.

More about this red and white polka dot skirt

The skirt label reads Grace Karin. I bought a size small but the waist was quite a bit large so I had to use a safety pin to keep it up. The waist band doesn’t have any elasticity per se and it’s cut pretty wide.

The material isn’t the softest ever. Not sure what it’s made from as there’s no label with that information, but it feels like a basic cotton or basic cotton blended with some other material. It does wrinkle easily and it isn’t very easy to iron.

Overall it’s a decent skirt considering the price was just $13.99. If I ever manage to get it properly ironed I’ll venture to wear it out and about, probably with a basic white or basic red t-shirt and some canvas sneakers or flat sandals.

This is a decent skirt for the $13.99 price tag. It's not made from the highest quality material but it's not made from the worse either. It's not flimsy. You can't see through it,. It does need ironing and I personally found it difficult to iron. But overall, for $13.99 it's a nice
