What a totally fun skirt! It is much brighter in person- candy-apple red. I paired it with a black cardigan and black patent leather pumps. I was worried about the "Mini Mouse" effect, but I was very happy with the way it looked. I am also planning to wear it with a white T-shirt, cropped jean jacket, and blue pumps for a totally different look. Unlike other reviewers, I do not feel this skirt ran big at all. It felt exactly TTS. On me, it fit like a true high-waisted skirt. Maybe because I am only five feet tall? I also LOVED the shorter look in the back. I thought it just added to the fun look of this piece. For me, this skirt was a must-have!

The color of this skirt was a little brighter and lighter than I was expecting after viewing the color on my monitor. In person, it was a bit more...maraschino cherry and a little brighter than what I was looking for. I'll admit, my wardrobe is predominantly grey with a lot of other neutral colors, so this color was always going to be a stretch for me.
The bigger problem for me was the fit. From the model shots online, I expected the skirt to be very high waisted (think: Girls from Savoy's ooh-la-lace skirt from 2010) which is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, the skirt was HUGE on me and barely stayed on my hips, much less sit where it was supposed to. In order to fit the way I wanted (with a high waistline), I would have had to take about 2 inches out of the waist.
I tried it on with a black top and the overall look was a little too Minnie Mouse for my taste. I could see the combination being cute on many girls, but it was too whimsical for my tastes. I'm also a little uncertain as to how I feel about the reverse hi-lo hemline. The back of the skirt is shorter than the front (which goes below the knees) and seemed off. It's definitely a unique take, though!

I usually love this designer (especially her pants) but this skirt was not doing anything for me. I'm usually a size 8 and was drowning in it. The longer length in the front and shortness in the back was a bit ridiculous looking and ironically I wanted it for a minnie mouse costume and still had to return it! The fit just wasn't what I needed it to be.
