Today's vocabulary word is a wardrobe staple for many clogging teams: the crinoline! Synonyms include petticoat or slip.
Here's my official definition:
Crinoline (noun): An item worn under a clogging skirt to give it that satisfying floof and swoosh while dancing.

OPTIONS: This was not my hometown, but I knew how to get to Kroger and Walmart. Kroger was closer.
