Funny Story...at least I think so...


Here is a little story about me. I will keep it short and sweet. So I got to head out to the mall without any children yesterday. I decided I would check out what the GAP had on sale, so I mozied on in. In amongst the pants and shorts was a creme, gauzy, flowy looking skirt with a bow that you tied in the front. OOhhh pretty, and only $4.97, I think I will try it on. Into the dressing room I go and slip on the skirt. Nice, it has elastic in the back but this bow in the front ties kind of weird. It kind of goes into a V so your belly button shows (If your wearing a half shirt, which I do not do ). A little perplexed I thought I would ask the employee how exactly this ties, it just didn't seem quite right, but I really loved the fabric and the flowiness of it. As I peeked out from around the door, she had left. "Oh well" I thought, its only 5 bucks, I think I will get it anyway. As I am hanging it back on the hanger (the kind they use for skirts) I notice some little hooks in the back of the skirt, then I notice some long straps in a little baggy attached to the skirt. "What are these for" I wonder. Then I realize, this is not a skirt, its a shirt! It is a strapless tank with a big bow front to tie you in, or you can use the straps that come with it. I started to laugh out loud in the dressing room all by my self. What a dork I am! Can you imagine. Here I am wearing my new "skirt" out and see someone wearing my "skirt" as a shirt?? Haha, boy would I have felt really stupid then! And thank God I didn't ask the employee for help! Can you tell how often I buy myself stuff..haha!

Here it is...Dont ask, I have no idea what I was thinking!

So my question is...did you buy it?? It's a VERY cute shirt! I may have to make a trip to gap to see if I can find one!

My question exactly, did you buy it? It is really cute. It will be great on your next trip to the Keys.

no after I realized it was a shirt, for some reason I decided not to get it. not sure why, think I was just feeling retarded.

I could see mistaking it for a skirt with that little ruffle on the bottom.
Wudda been cute on you as a shirt too.

Suzie said...

No I can see that. It could work as a skirt.

Brooke, thanks for stopping by! There is a crazy amount to do in this area if you want to do the 'staycation' thing. Funny story about the skirt shirt!

Hilarious!
I can sort of see how it could be a skirt. Why not? The little flounce at the bottom. The tie at the waist.
I say wear it both ways! Two new things to wear for one low price!
