(MINUS THE) LEATHER TRIMMED FIT AND FLARE SKIRT
Made for girls with curves...
I wear a 6 in Express. I'm 5'4" and 135 lbs. This skirt hit maybe 2-3 inches above my knees so short enough for a night out, but probably not appropriate for the office. The 4 was too big. A little loose around the waist so I'll be ordering a size 2. I think this skirt may fit better on girls with a more curvy figure since it fit around my hips with the bottom 'leather' piece flaring out--very cute. I didn't think the leather and fabric was an awkward combo at all. I tried it on with the black polka dot Portofino shirt tucked in and it looked adorable.

OK well I'm going to add another good review for this skirt! I just got it in store today. It actually looks really cute on! Not too poofy like some of their other fit and flare skirts ive tried. Looks great with a blouse tucked in. Cute mini length so it may be too short for the office, but adorable to wear out. My only reason to remove a star is I wish the leather part had more shine to it like it does int he pic on the model. It def is a matte pleather look as seen in the other pic, not shiny like the full pic of the model. Overall happy with my purchase!

like the skirt but...
I saw this skirt online and the next day I went to the store to get it. I was very happy when I tried it and it was perfect fit for me, so I got it....Next day I wore it to work and I smell weird odor... I realized that the faux leather part of the skirt smells so bad...now I have to go to return it....tooo bad..:-(

had to have...
I love this overall appeal of the skirt- the silhouette, the leather detail, and the material of the knit. But I had a hard time finding a top that looked right, especially with the odd placement of the leather. After trying many options, I came up with a cute option- buy a slightly oversized v-neck tee and knot it off to the side. It keeps is loose on top, but then nice and fitted on the bottom making way for the leather. Add a statement necklace and sexy heels and boom: instant outfit.

I love the idea of a leather skirt, but the placement of the fabric makes it look like a maternity skirt.
