Sporty Fashion: Miu Miu Goalie Skirt

Miu Miu Wool Cut-out Skirt, $835 at

I must confess: I am not a sporty gal. For most of high school, I was one of the "day gym queens," which simply meant that I was forced to take gym since I didn't join a team sport. The combination of the upcoming Olympics, the recent sports challenge on Project Runway, and Miuccia Prada's heavily sporty Miu Miu fall line has, however, made me a little more curious about the potential of successfully mixing fashion and sports--which, to me, have always been diametrically opposed. (I understood Daniel's frustration on the show. What's wrong with a cocktail dress for Olympians?) This particular skirt, with its soccer-net design, gives me hope: no spandex, polyester, or nylon, just a perfectly-shaped pencil skirt with some architectural details. I'm game--are you?

Mr C used to be a goalkeeper, which could lead to some cheeky humour if I were to wear this skirt, but I do indeed like it!

First off, I am a huge fan of Project Runway (just putting that out there). But I am not a huge fan of the skirt. I find it a little to literal of an approach. They took the idea/inspiration of a goalie net and put it on cloth. I don't know, maybe that's just me. But yes I am definitely, as you put it, a "day gym queen".
