Beautiful print but....
I was quite surprised at the colour of the small contrasting flowers when i got the skirt. They are quite a bright orange really and not the burgundy that appears on the website. IMO i have to say that the skirt would have been vastly enhanced with the original colour in the picture. It does cheapen it. Saying that, it is a beautiful print. The teal colour is just gorgeous although im not sure it fits in with December as the colour and print has more of a spring vibe. Am wondering if this is more of a spring summer collection piece. I have a number of these skirts and was quite disappointed with the feel. Maybe its me, but it feels a bit thinner than the lovely fabric the others are made of. I have always sized down in these skirts from a 12 to a 10. Because the materialbeing thinner isnt as forgiving, it tends to show up more lumps and bumps than previous other maxis. All in all, i will keep this skirt because i do like the print but the fabric and the brash orange in the print, let it down. Also...ws, where are your lovely tops to go with it. I searched the website and couldnt find anything in this colour to match! As for length, well at 5ft 5, its fine. I just roll it over at top if i want it to be shorter.
