HIGH WAIST EXPOSED ZIP A LINE SKIRT
Fun & Flirty Skirt
I purchased this skirt last fall in Royal Blue, Tibetan Red and Pecan (a tan/beige) and love them all. Now that the black is on sale I just ordered it as well. I agree with the other reviews who found this skirt runs quite small. I'm 5'4"/127 typically a 2 sometimes a 4 in high-waist skirts but I needed this in a 6 and its a perfect fit with NO stretch. I didn't mind sizing up because the fit was so flattering and I didn't want to deduct stars over it - once you have the right size it looks fab and is worthy of a 5 star rating. It is such a cute skirt but it is on the short side so make sure its not too windy when you are going out or that you have tights on. Good value @ 50% off especially with a coupon. Definitely size up, don't even bother with your regular size when ordering on-line unless you have an extremely small high waist/ribcage. Would like to see this in true white (with a full no-see through lining) and some fun colors for spring, hot or fluro pink, oasis, cayman and truly blues would be great. Lovely fun basic - highly recommend!

its a gorgeous skirt and creates a very flattering silhouette but the pockets jut out at the side kinda ruining the whole look of it i felt sad having to return it because of that. if they made a version without the pockets i would be alll over it.

I have this skirt in red and purple. Very flattering to an hour glass shape.

VERY high waisted
This skirt was a total steal when I got it during a recent Tick-tock sale and applied my $15 reward from my Express card.
I am usually a 6 in Express pencil skirts and natural waist skirts (and an 8/10 in jeans, depending on style), but ordered this in an 8 based on another reviewer's comments. The skirt is SUPER narrow at the waistband, but keep in mind that it is a high-waist look. The waistband hits above my belly button (a bit higher than other high-waist skirts I own), but the skirt itself falls just past my fingertips (about mid-thigh on my 5'4 frame). For some work environments, this might be appropriate but I wouldn't count on it as an office skirt.
I did try on the 10 as well because I was worried the 8 wasn't fitting as intended, but the A-line was much more accentuated on the 10 and made the skirt look frumpy. The larger size also made me look heavier while the 8 had a slimming effect on my tummy and hips.
Overall, a great purchase -- fully lined and very well made -- and the blue will look stunning with a white or cream shirt. I do recommend going one size up or trying on in store before ordering.

Great Skirt! ALMOST perfect
I love this skirt! I am 5'8" its not too short or too long. I wear it to work and out at night - I have it in blue and just bought the black one.
The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it wrinkles easily and the seams on the blue one started coming apart so I had to have it fixed.
