Got this skirt during the sample sale because I was attracted by the neon green but did not recollect it being part of this season’s catalog. Was I surprised when I saw it online and even more when I saw the price tag! My review below.

Pros: heavy material. It looks and feels like cotton to me but the fabric content reads wool and polyester. It is pretty warm and the neon green provides a nice accent to the African-like pattern. I love the length on my six-feet frame as it hits right at my knees.

Fit: I believe it runs slightly bigger than regular. I took my regular size and should have sized down but I like the fit nonetheless

Cons: The shape is not a true pencil. It bulks up at hips and is tighter at the knees (I don’t know what’s the fashion word for this style). The added volume at the hips is not too bad but may be a deal breaker for some. Another deal breaker is the price online. I would not pay close to $400 for this skirt with my budget.

Sissi’s verdict: Keeper! Waiting in the cold for the sample sale may have been worth the experience after all ;)

Have you tried on this skirt? Please share!
