A message from founder & owner, Katie:
My daughter, G, is really the brain-child behind Chase This Skirt. It started when she was only three and fairly obsessed with sparkly things.
I had started running in the summer of 2013 to get back into shape after having kids.
The day before my fourth 5k, a three-year-old G took one look at my "flat runner" outfit and straight up told me it was boring. And she was totally right.
G stated that I needed to add some glitter and sparkle so that I could shine. We went to the fabric store and she picked out the sparkliest material that she could find.
Calling upon some dormant sewing skills, I managed to come up with this magnificent magenta creation:
During that race, people really took notice of my ensemble & began cheering which kept me running and moving forward. Magenta sparkles will turn heads! You didn't see much of that a few years ago.
I knew that G and I were on to something big. Sewing skirts for myself quickly turned into sewing skirts for friends, then friends of friends, then internet strangers!
Demand for these awesome skirts has turned a small home hobby into a growing business sourcing local Southern California materials, garment houses and talent.
We're always adding new ways to shine with a healthy collection of skirts, trucker hats and non-slip headbands.
G still gets final approval on my race outfits, often twinning me if she's running too.
With Chase This Skirt you not only get fun quality apparel, you also get me. That's right me, Katie. I'll be your online cheerleader, your in-person cheerleader or sometimes quite literally a cheerleader if that's what the running costume requires!
