PARABALL BEE SKIRT
Had been looking at this skirt online for a while and really liked the print. Was put off with the length initially as i like skirts to sit at around 55cm [ just above the knee] as i find that length not frumpy and was worried that the extra cm might make it look a bit old fashioned on me. When i finally did decide to buy it, the 12 was sold out. Decided to chance it and buy the 10. It arrived yesterday. I agree with the other reviewer who said the bees stand out a lot less when you see the skirt in real life, which is a bit disappointing. The skirt, fit wise is actually fine and sits in a size 10, high on the waist. I have the mushroom skirt as well and it has the black pleats and in the 12 the back pleats seem to kick out a lot more which im not convinced looks that great. Because this is a size smaller, the pleats at the back sit better and im sure its due to the size being neater on my figure. I would say, if you are between sizes, you could get away with sizing down on this. As for the length, its ok but i cant help but feel that a few cm shorter on me [ im 5ft 5] would have been better in this style. I am going to keep it because i do like it and its well made [ not a really thin material] lined, and will go with lots of different tops. Its also versatile for summer with sandals, spring and winter with tights and boots. Navy will look great as does white or a pale blue blouse/t-shirt. Im not sure the bees really look like bees online or in the hand though!

I love the style of this skirt, but the colours seemed to contrast less in reality than on line so it was a bit "blue" for me, too plain, and too much like a denim skirt. If that's what you want, it is very nice, cute bees, shame the pockets from last summers version haven't been carried over.

Gorgeous skirt, denim-y in colour but perfect for office wear. Got it with Papilo cardi and a green t-shirt; will wear it with plum-coloured tights and my new lace-up leather brogues. Pretty outfit! And when it gets warm enough, I'll ditch the tights.
