Â by MissMish Fall Printed Pencil Skirt
I almost always go for a petite purchase once an item goes on sale. However, my local Anthro had quite a few of these in stock in regular sizing so I went ahead and tried it on. As far as sizing for a regular item, I'm glad I went with the regular. I can't imagine wanting this skirt any shorter.
From the pictures listed online I wouldn't have thought this skirt would be so form fitting. It really fits like a true pencil skirt. I like the corduroy texture as it's not overwhelming or frumpy looking and I find the color and pattern to be as true in person as it is online.
The only thing I really don't love about the skirt is the panel in the front that can make me feel wider when viewed from a side angle.
The skirt I ended up purchasing had a 0 tag attached but I noticed the inside label said "00" on it when I got home. If the skirt IS a 0 I feel it fits true to sizing.

Â by RoxyH Great fall skirt
I'm 5'2", 31-26-33, 108lbs and I've tried both the 0 and the 2 in this skirt (2 is pictured). Both fit fine, but the 0 was a bit more flattering so I'd probably go with that. I usually opt for petite sizing when available, and I might end up trying the 2P, but the regular length is fine and not overwhelming. Love the colors, love the corduroy, but I'm not quite wowed enough to pay full price. Hurry up and go on sale, please!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ChristinaPS A form-fitting transition piece
The silhouette of this lovely floral cord pencil is fitted, yet sophisticated and versatile. It runs true to size, though some may prefer a little extra room or length and would benefit from going up a size. (I am typically a 6 or 8; in this I chose the 8, and it hits about 2 inches above my knee.) It looks great with a buttoned shirt or blazer for the office or a peplum top and a denim jacket for early Fall weekends. Pairing it with long sleeves and flats or flat boots will balance out the shorter hemline; once itâ€™s cool, tights will do the trick as well.
