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.

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.

Very well made skirt and oh soooo cute. The embroidery is a grey and orange. I purchased the creamy sweater it is pictured with. What I didn't realize, the sweater has alittle grey heathering in it too, which really set off the whole outfit. However, the sweater was more fitted on me, as I am unfortunately full-figured. I'll have to return the sweater. Bummer!
