This skirt and I have a long past. I originally bought this skirt in about 2003/2004 on a Target clearance rack for about $3.50. What a steal! I got lots of compliments on this skirt over the years. In fact one day, my post doc advisor (geeky engineer) stopped in my office on the way to a meeting to say "I can't stay, I'm on my way to a meeting. I know this is out of character for me to say, but that skirt is fabulous on you, and I just had to stop in and tell you that." But then I lost 50 pounds, and the skirt no longer fit. It was the last item of clothing that was too big that I parted with. I kept hoping I would have some inspiration on how to alter it, but came to the realization that it just had to go. Then about 1.5 weeks ago, I came across this skirt on Ebay in my new smaller size! I paid more than the first time I bought this skirt, but I know from experience that it will be worth every penny! So excited to have it back in my closet. I have tried to replace it a few times over the last 2 years (this being the closest). The other zebra skirt will be heading to a Goodwill donation box, now that this one is back.
