I bought a thrift store skirt even though it was a firm "no way girl" at the thrift store mirror. One of the advanced age thriftanistas unapologetically told me "it was unflattering to my figure". I liked the fruit bouquet embroidered patch so I bought it anyway. It was a too big elastic waist skirt and now it's a fitted asymmetrical wrap skirt.
I have made peace with leggings as pants. They are comfortable. They are cozy. They are not pants but I'm ok with that. I don't normally go for thrift store leggings as they are likely thin ones in poor condition. I thrifted a pair with leather panels. Thus, giving them pant like qualities. I decided they were worth the $1 I paid for them.
