Rated 5 out of 5Â by michaelaineden Swirly mint-chocolate-chip ice cream for your legs
I just bought this skirt and absolutely adore everything about it. The mint and milk-chocolate colored stripes, smooth but ripely texture and parachute-like weight are perfect. I particularly love the pink piping and the way this skirt moves (nice construction). It's also lined in a very pretty mint-colored chiffon (nice touch). The stripes aren't meant to line up.
Normally I wear a size small (I am a 6), but I ended up with a medium in this skirt to get the length to hit my ankle (5'8"). I prefer wearing it lower on the waist (as in the street-side image, as opposed to the studio images, where it sits high on the model's waist). If you are my size and want it higher on the waist, and you aren't worried about length, then I would go with the small.
This skirt makes me feel as if I am wearing mint-chocloate-chip ice cream. Beautiful... Both modern and classic at the same time. So glad I splurged.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by nirvanaGirl More versatile than you might think
This skirt is a beautiful piece. I happened to be wearing a cotton graphic tee with charcoal and warm lavandar hues in it when I went to Anthro yesterday, and when I tried this skirt on with the graphic tee and flats, it actually looked great! Happy accident, but I think I will wear this skirt dressed down all the time. The colors/pattern are more versatile than you might think at first. I think in the fall it will look great with a longer chunky pullover sweater and boots.The sweater will weigh down the airiness of the skirt and be a nice contrast. I am a size 14, 5'6" tall, and I got a large, which fit just right and skimmed the top of my foot with flats on. It has a pretty strong elastic waistband, not loose, which I think a light flowy skirt like this needs. It has great movement and feels wonderful on. The pink piping is a nice surprise.

This is a gorgeous skirt. Not having the lines match up is a plus...as it gives movement to the skirt. The material is soft and silky. Length is perfect for me. The color is pretty. The green stripes are aqua mint-like in color and the brown is more like rich milk chocolate color. My only beef is that it is hard to match. The only top that will go with this color scheme is white. I wish when designer's use unique color patterns...that they also think about what we are going to wear with it...and also make matching aqua mint-like tee shirts or something. But I love it...it is a keeper!!
