My last experiment: change it to a pair of low boots. Not quite.
Please cast your vote on keeping or returning. I'm on the fence right now. I'll sum up the vote and make the decision that way. Figure it'll be easier. Oh one thing I do need to mention is the price of the skirt. I got it for $20.99, (orig. $69.50). Thank you all!!!
*Update* decision is: Return!!!
