I don't typically write reviews, but because the product shot and catalog shot differ so greatly, I had to chime in and submit a few pictures. First, the quality is absolutely excellent. The skirt is thick, with well-done embroidery and a substantial lining. I'm happy that it is lined because I will likely wear it with tights most of the time, and then it won't stick to my legs.
As for the fit, I would say it is true to size. I am 5'10", about 140 pounds, and I took my usual size 6. It fit nicely in the waist and had a little extra room in the hips, but that's okay. I prefer the extra room around the holidays anyway. :#
Regarding the cut, I would say that it is a cross between the product shot and the catalog shot. It is a slight a-line shape, not a stick-straight pencil shape like the product shot. However, it isn't as a-line as the catalog shot. Also, the little pompons hang down on the bottom of the skirt like on the product shot #not up on the body of the skirt like the catalog shot#
Overall, this is a stunning skirt. I will wear it with cream, navy, black, red, grey, and will probably play around with other color combos too. I really see it as a great skirt that I can use for casual holiday gatherings. It really struck me when I saw it on a mannequin in the store as something that I had to have...so I splurged.

this skirt is what winter anthro dreams are made of! it's really just perfect besides the fact that it runs large and small 0's will be sized out or have to have it tailored. i'm a 0 and it's definitely big but i can make it work. the quality is exceptional, especially considering anthro's declining quality lately! i agree with other reviewers that it's a bit more a-line then in the product shot. it's also made of a pretty substantial fabric and has a nice lining with cute red stitching... overall it's a total win but size down!

not as straight and narrow as shown on-line; it is more A-line. Very flattering on. I had to size down one size. well made and sturdy; lined. goes with many tops.
