Rated 5 out of 5┬áby chewytwix Amazing, impressive staple skirt
I saw this skirt online earlier and did not look at it twice, but when I went to the store and ran my fingers over it...ohhhh it just had to come with me to the fitting room! I grabbed my usual 0 and it looked great with my cami tucked in. I tried on two other skirts, the rosette and sugarplum, but the personal shopper liked this one best in terms of high quality, style, fit, and versatility. My closet looks like someone thew up skittles, so it was nice for a simple black skirt (it doesn't look like navy to me). The majority of the skirt is made out of wool, but the top part near the waist is your nylon polyester blend. My only complaint is I normally wear a 24 in jeans and felt the waist area is a bit tight. There are three tiny sews where you hook on at the waist which may be challenging to do especially in the mornings..or on bloated days.
This is a lot of skirt if this isn't your thing. I layed mine flat on the floor and it was a perfect giant circle (with a tiny circle at the center where my body is magically supposed to go through). Consider grabbing a size up to compare. Try it with a tucked chambray.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Nori AMAZING Skirt!
I am shocked at some of the bad reviews. I was going to order this skirt online, because the Canadian stores don't always carry everything the US stores do. But I happened upon it at a local Anthropologie. I fell in love with it on the hanger and even more so when I tried it on. I am only 5'2" and it hits right above the knee. So you can wear it to work, church, or out to dinner. The fabric is to die for, especially for this Canadian girl - making it ideal to wear in the winter. If it is long for some, I can't imagine it would be hard to get hemmed by a seamstress or even at a good dry cleaner. I just know that I'm going to get so much wear out of this skirt. I am so glad I bought it. ALSO, not sure if this is helpful, but I went a size down, not up. I like it to fit at the natural waist and with my regular size 2, it fell a little. I found the 0 perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby JennaBrez Pretty...for someone else
This skirt is super gorgeous and I wanted so badly to make it work, but the wool is very thick and the way it comes out from the hip adds width - as a girl with curves this did not work, but I think it would definitely work for someone who needs to add some curves...one note, there are 3 hooks at the top of the zipper that attach only to string, this cuts down on bulk but could become a problem if said strings break
