Rated 4 out of 5 by AnthroHabitue Not for straight figures
I adore this skirt. The neutral olive seemed to pair well with many tops I tried on (cream, orange, blue, etc.). I can see this skirt with flats, heels, booties or tights and boots. So many options and a great fall color palette!
I am fairly straight shaped, no hips. This skirt is cut for those with a little more curve in my opinion. I am surprised some people thought it ran small; I found my usual 6 to fit great in the waist, if not a little generous. There was just too much fabric in the hips and like another reviewer mentioned, the fabric doesn't fall away from the body. It is a bit stiff. I found it worked better when the top was tucked in. Still, I had to be honest with myself and as much as I love everything about this skirt I didn't love the way it fit my body so I left without it.
It seems very well made, the fabric is substantial and again the colors lend themselves to a multitude of styling options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by truthteller Confusing sizing
For me the size 6 was TTS (29-36) however despite the beautiful design the material was too stiff and didn't fall the way it's supposed to especially on my curvy bottom 1/2. Did not end up purchasing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phineas Dropped a bundle but will wear a lot (runs small)
This is a pricey piece but I think that I will wear it a lot. It is unusual with random pattern and colours of embroidery over the damask fabric. I can see styling this Bohemian for fun or classic for work. The many colours and semi-neutral nature of the olive drab fabric makes it a neutral with some punch. It is a unique style sure to draw compliments--or at least comments when people try to figure out the embroidery hieroglyphics..
One note, I usually swim in a size 0 and this one was really snug so I had to go up to a size 2. This is pretty shocking when you have a 22-23 inch waist.
