Calling all Purse Snatchers

Dear Purse Snatchers. If you ever see me wearing this outfit again I am an easy target. Let me tell you I can NOT run in this skirt. JESUS I can barely walk in it!!  So I thought I got a good deal on a cute little pencil-like skirt.  Get up this morning. Put new skirt ON.  Leave for work (with only about 10 minutes before I am going to be late).  Can BARELY walk.  Is it just me? Maybe my legs are large like old growth forest cedar stumps or something- could it be that this was designed for someone with wide hips and spindly little legs?  I have no idea who the designer thought would be wearing this but I would sure like to see the person.  I had to walk with baby steps all the way to work and was exhausted by the time I got there (and YES I am a long distance triathlete!!).  AND THEN I had to walk up the stairs sideways!! I felt like a crab trying to scurry up to second floor.

At any rate, 2 compliments " cute skirt" and " I LOVE your ring".  At least if purse snatchers do come for me I have my gargantuan ring as my secret weapon!!!  Any suggestions for what to do with the skirt???

Hope you're all having a super awesome day! xo J


  1. I know the feeling. The only pencil skirts I have left are all in a knit, so they are little more forgiving.

  2. haha, I guess someone forgot to add a kick pleat!
    at least it looks good!

  3. The outfit looks hot (because of the monochrome top and tights) but the skirt is replaceable. If it's impeding your movement, find another one. Life's too short to hobble.

  4. Very funny. I have the same complaint on my blog post today (tuesday) i coulndn't walk in my skirt either

  5. I love my pencil skirts. Wear them often. Sounds like no kick pleat to me?

    Bottom line, it it doesn't work... get rid of it. To bad though... very cool skirt!

    Nice ensemble!


  6. I've actually always loved those movement-constricting skirts, I feel like it makes for a better walk! Love that print.

  7. It's not just you. I purchased that same skirt from Target, wore it and gave it away within 24 hours.

  8. Would work well on someone with wide hips and spindly legs you say? Feel free to send it my way :) Think I'll pick one up after work - I've had my eyes on it for a few weeks.
