There's one on sale and I'm wondering if I should get it.

How do you clean your leather skirt?

Well if its real leather then it specialist clean only.
Tbh, i have a leather skirt and unless its a stain on the lining, you could get away with just wiping it. I haven't taken it to be cleaned and probably wont do that often. Its not like its really close to intimate areas like trousers or dresses are [under arms etc.]
If its fake, most can be machine washed.

I suppose you could wipe it with leather wipes? Never tried this though and perhaps and if doing then wipe it on a concealed area just incase of colour fastness.

Is this, uhm, tarty or could it be made wearable?

Its tight and short so you would need to be really careful with it or very young. Nothing with a heel - sporty chunky lace up shoes and thick tights or flat biker boots and thick tights and a very casual top like a chunky jumper or loose long sleeved black top and you might pull it off.

I have several leather skirts and I haven't had any cleaned yet (scruff).

I'd wear that skirt with black tights, ankle boots and skinny rib top. It would also look nice with a blouse or shirt. If you like it get it!!

I have a gift card that I'm iching to use. Also, one size up is the one that's available. So maybe it will not be too short no?

If you buy a size larger it will sit lower so it should be fine smile Try it and see if you like it. You can always return it.
