Rated 3 out of 5 by Had to leave behind Waaaahh! That's me, crying, because this skirt had a big no-no that had me leaving it behind in the store. It really has potential but the one big flaw is that where the waist band is sewn to the skirt, it leaves a big chunk of fabric that goes all the way around and makes it appear that I have a roll around my mid-section. It's funny because I came out of the fitting room at the same time as another lady, and we both had the skirt on. She had the same problem. The fitting room attendant could clearly see it as well. As far as the rest of the skirt, it's beautiful The waist is a heavy knit/sweater material. It looked awesome with just a white tank tucked in and would pair well with a denim shirt. The length is slightly shorter in the front and then dips lower in the back. I'm 5'5" and with a low heel it would hit at the perfect length (in the back) I probably could get away with a petite length if I wanted to wear it with flats as well. It runs true to size, I tried the Small (I'm 135lbs). If you can get over that chunk of fabric, then it's a beautiful piece. Also, the slip underneath hits as in the model shot and it CAN be seen underneath. That may be a pro or a con for some. Look closely because you can see it in the photo. (I didn't see it in the navy but just realized that maybe the roll of fabric wouldn't be as obvious in a darker color.) February 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I would sleep in this skirt if I could! My new favorite skirt!! The color and the details are just as pictured online. The pleats are small and not over powering at all. The waste band is a great touch, it's a little tight so I purchased a medium bc I am a true medium. I tried the small on for a comparison and it was tiny and tight. So go with your true size. I love how it's a bit longer in the back, and the fact I can wear it now and later with sandals. It's lined and very well made. For reference I'm 5'3" 145lbs and normally am a medium. This is another standout piece to add to your wardrobe. Or in my case, my anthro addiction. February 2, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by So disapointed I received this skirt yesterday in yellow. Online it looked so lovely. The colour is as nice as it was online. However, the rest of the skirt was a disappointment. I ordered a small in the petite. It was still way too long. The waist band is a very thick knit, and the rest of the skirt is very light. From the waistband it flares out at the hip in a very unflattering way. Pulled down lower, or pulled up higher it made no difference, it was simply unflattering. The material felt cheap and scratchy. For the price I don't feel it's worth it. On top of that, I had to pay duty and exchange. Sadly, I will be sending this one back. February 8, 2014

Size Guide

How to Measure


Measure under your arms at the fuller part of your bust. Keep tape level across your shoulder blades.

Natural Waist

Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape comfortably loose.

Drop Waist

Measure around your body 1 1/2" below your natural waist.


Stand with your feet together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.


Using a pair of your pants that fit well, measure from crotch seam to bottom of leg.


Wrap a length of string around your finger and mark where the end touches. Measure the distance between the end of the string and the mark you've made to determine what size to order.
