tennis = skirt.

I made a deal with my little brother that I would learn to play tennis while he was on his mission. He is amazing at tennis and needs someone around to at least hold a game.
I agreed and haven't thought much about it until I registered for my spring term classes today. I considered the possible cost of equipment and felt a little hesitant until I remembered the overall aesthetic of the game. In what other sport do the women get to wear skirts? Good thing I have an excuse to adopt the style.
Let's just say, with the Adidas Stella McCartney line out, I wish I had thousands of dollars to spend on tennis equipment.
I hope I get good enough to justify an attractive tennis get-up someday. Maybe I'll have to make one for myself.
Can you tell I'm not a natural athlete?

you could totally make a tennis skirt worth more than stella's.

I agree with costi. I would kill for a tennis skirt made by you. perhaps you can make us matching skirts for when we play doubles against natalie and mary.

If you learn to touch your foot to your forehead like the girl in the slide show, I will buy you any tennis skirt you want!
