ClosetfullwithAnthro - Review from Anthropologie
Beautiful design but lots of poufRemember the skirt construction of Tracy Reese's iconic dresses like the Mompos or the Mariposa lace dress? This skirt has the same underskirts. A normal slip + a tull version that gives the skirt its pouf.As another reviewer mentioned those underskirts are not at all the peachy colour shown in the picture but pink - a Barbie pink to be exact.I love the idea and design of this skirt. It fits tts. I have a 26/27 inch waist and took a size 4 regular. It's not a tight fit so you have room left for a good meal.What I don't like is that the white dots are painted on - why that ? They will only faint over time.Also be prepared that the skirt has a lot of pouf in it - more than shown on the model. The skirt hits at my knees. And although I am tall (5'8'') - with the length and all that pouf - I find the skirt to be overwhelming me. I think it might have been better if it ended about 1 inch above the knee. I would actually like to try the petite version for that matter. Too bad I live in Europe where unfortunately there are no Anthro stores, so I won't be able to.I won't return it because of all the shipping cost and customs I have already paid - but I think I should have waited until sale.

For your inner ballerina1. This is a three-layer circle skirt. The top layer is the black & white polka dots with lace netting. The middle layer is pink poly (tulle-like but not actual tulle) with cascading flared peplums, and the bottom layer is a fitted poly lining.2. For sizing, I ordered my usual 4 (27/37) and would say that it runs TTS. However, because it's a circle-style, it's more or less poufy everywhere -- meaning the waist is narrow but all the fabric expands around it. The result is that it inevitably adds bulk to your bottom half, which some gals may or may not like, but that's the style. The full-length photo with the model is a good depiction of how far it comes out at the back and sides (i.e. probably a couple inches). At 5'5" the skirt was an inch above my knee in length.3. I didn't end up keeping this skirt for a few reasons: the pink lining is more saccharine than I hoped (more pepto bismol color than blush), the white dots seems to be painted on (?) so they are a little splotchy/inconsistent in some places, and finally the feel of the black material. It's listed at 60%cotton/40% poly but had that unnatural (neither soft nor stiff) feeling, and was a little shiny and textured. The skirt is from Plenty by Tracy Reese, the more affordable version of the parent brand, which is likely reflective of the fabric choice and materials. Lastly, it's dry-clean only5. For me personally, this skirt was a miss (mainly because of fit and color aesthetics). But I love the overall idea of it - polka dots and tulle. Fun. If it works for you, I have no doubt that many ladies out there will totally rock it!

Cute, Flirty, 80's inspiredI saw this skirt and fell in love, It's even cuter in person. It's less peach and more pink though. Fits like a dream, true to size with fun, flirty feel. Reminds me of a toned down 80's party skirt, Madonna inspired maybe? But classy enough to wear to a cocktail party. Very cute and very happy with my purchase.
chewytwix - Review from Anthropologie
Darling girly girl skirt but exaggerates my hipsI am 5'1" 105 ibs and take a 0p in everything so that's what I ordered. When it arrived, I was taken aback by the color of the lining: it was hot pink and not nude/soft pink as pictured. This fluffy, polka dotted, hot pink skirt may draw in those on the younger side (or young at heart) so it might not be for everyone.The skirt ended at my knees. It was a tad puffy overall, but was acceptable. However, my only gripe is that this skirt exaggerates my hips by A LOT. I wear size 24 in jeans and though I have curves, I wouldn't consider myself curvy. This skirt made my hips stick out. I tried to rectify this by tucking in longer shirts so the ends won't add to the bulk, adding a wide belt, wearing the shirt untucked with a wide belt, and finally with a blazer. The blazer helped the most.Any advice would be great since I'm determined to make this work!
