Retrofit: From Patio to Party


I missed this month's rockabilly night (just too sleepy), which reminded me I didn't post about my outfit from the last month. I hopped on ebay to finally finally get a squaw skirt and I actually managed to snag one for a little bit over $20. I couldn't believe my luck.
