How do you deal with the chain? I've tried riding in skirts, but I think that my skirts are just too flowy. they always get caught.
as for finding skirts, I love broomstick skirts. they look like this, but cotton. I have three of them, one solid red, one with an appliqued white flower on black, and one that goes from blue to purple. http://www.travelsmith.com/jump.jsp?...S=1&itemID=206
they don't always return to quite that crinkly, but they are easy to return to a beautifully slightly wrinkled state. and they are wonderful for the hot weather. Not quite enough in cold weather though. I really want some wool skirts. we'll see. I got all of mine at nordstroms I think. (one I've had for like 4 years, and don't recall where I got it, but I beleive its free people brand.) I'm sure less expensive ones could be found, or made. I think they are pretty much circle skirts from gores, with thin cotton, and an elastic waist.
I prefer skirts, but even if I go out in jeans and a t-shirt, if I cover my hair, I feel more modest. But I'm really loving skirts, both from modesty, and because the hippy skirts look pretty. I found a look the other day I LOVED, with a cotton t, over a calf length flowy skirt, and a rebozo style draped covering like this
. of course, now that I see that, I realize, it is draped totally differently, and want to try that. anyways, the look was totally completed when I added a belt over the shirt (because I needed to bring the belt from one place to another, and my waist was the logical place to put it, with my hands so full lol). It felt feminine and old fashioned, and pretty, which is pretty much my favorite. Regardless of when it reminds me of, I like things that feel reminiscent of older days.
