Love at first sight

She. I saw this skirt online I knew it was going to be even more beautiful in person. Loved the print and fabric on this skirt. Note:it does not have stretch. BUT it have pockets! Who doesn't love a good set of pockets? Will definitely rent again.

Great addition for work or weekend.

I really liked the fit and color of the skirt. I was the first one to wear this size (had the original tag). It fit true to my waist and was perfect floor length. Loved the pockets. Only downside was that I wore a longer shirt which then caused extra bulk ones with the short "slip" built in to the dress. I wish the slip was a little longer - that is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.

Flowy and floral

A perfect maxi skirt for day or night. I loved the colors. The slit goes a little high so I wore a longer black slip underneath and it worked perfectly. Great pick for the warmer weather.

The color is amazing and the way it flows. Eye catching.

So pretty. I don't have a small waist so just be aware of that. Had to wear it really high. But over all beautiful with a black top.

This skirt is gorgeous and comfortable, it even has pockets. The slit was a surprise since the photos don't show it has one but I loved it!

Mis-fit

I loved the flow of the skirt but the "slit" runs directly up the front of your legs as opposed to off center to show off a leg and the mini skirt underneath is very tight and short compared to the sizing of the rest of the skirt. The pockets on the side appeared to add bulk to the hips instead of a slimming silhouette. The waist felt true to size. I wanted this to work but sent back immediately.

Loved this skirt!

Loved this skirt! Got many compliments! Was a little long , but managed with heels. Wore for my Anniversary dinner while on vacation. My American Apparel top went perfect with it.

Perfect for date night and girls night too!

This skirt is so sassy! It's true to size. I got a 0 instead of a 2 because it was the only one available. Next time I would go with my normal size (2). I wore this for a happy hour with my girlfriends and then a date night during our getaway weekend to Virginia. The black under skirt is tiny, so I used a safety pin close the slit of the long skirt.

I loved this skirt! I wore it with a black sleeveless bodysuit to an art and wine festival. It was super comfortable on a hot day. I'm glad I went a size up for comfort. I would rent this again.

Cute, but long for short people

I liked the bold print of this skirt, but Free People always runs super long. Had to wear platforms and even then it was long. However, it is tight in the waist. I'm very hippy and the black skirt underneath was tight so 6R might have worked better, but definitely not in the length. I'm torn on the slit. It's cute, but when windy, the skirt can really blow up. Many, many compliments from strangers though.

Wanted to love this item but it is was weird construction. Loved the pockets on this skirt but slit is in super weird spot and doesn't show when you walk.

The most amazing skirt with a cute little peek-a-boo!!!

Free People does it again!!! I am in L-O-V-E with this flirtatious fun skirt and am already thinking of how I will style it, when I rent it again!!! It fits TTS - I wear a 27 in jeans and this fit {almost} perfectly, although there is no give. If you are leaning towards sizes, I suggest sizing up. I wore the 4 a tad bit snug, but think the 6 may have been too big. The split opens up to expose the black mini skirt underneath, for a cute and unexpected peek-a-boo! . If you are looking for a show stopper this is it!!! See more at www.crockpotempire.com

Pretty fabric but odd fit

I loved the fabric and the idea of this skirt. I felt it ran small, however I don't have a small waist and it's probably just not a good fit for my shape. The slit and pockets were in a peculiar place and I found it looked better if I turned it almost sideways. It was much shorter than I expected and I couldn't wear any heel with it. I didn't end up wearing this. I would recommend for a more petite build.

Very pretty skirt, but wish I had gotten a size smaller.

I loved this skirt but it was large in the waist. It also had a lot of material, so I would suggest going a size down.

Beautifully (Too Long) Skirt

The same day I received it, I returned it. It runs very, very long. There was simply no way to make this skirt wearable for my height. I would love to see it in petite because it's a beautiful skirt. It flows beautifully, the material is soft, and the slit is classy. It fit nicely around my curvy waist. Did I mention how beautiful it is?

So light

Perfect for the balmy weather in Cuba. Big split in the front made it perfect. I'm only 5'2 so it does drag on the ground, I'll wear wedges next time. Worth buying!

Standout Skirt

This skirt is lovely! I wore it to my sister's birthday party and received a lot of compliments. The pattern is even prettier in person- more like watercolor- than the photos show. I would have liked the fabric to have a little more stretch around the waistline, but I still felt very comfortable. Would rent again to dress up or down.

RTR was super nice and tried to accommodate the mishap.

The skirt was very pretty ! My backup size was not available! The skirt size 10 fit tight around the waist. So I wasn't able to wear it. Also UPS did lose my order! Even if I wanted to wear I couldn't, I was upset about that. I received it the following week!

Fun summer skirt

This skirt was fun the slit was a unique element to an already vibrant look. There is a black skirt underneath that was a little short on me but the putter skirt was quite long. I wore flats with this but easily could have worn heels. Any shorter than 5'8 will need heels.

Love this skirt!!!!

Awesome skirt. Has a fun surprise slit and pockets. It's a little long, if you're on the shorter you'll have to wear heels or a wedge. Perfect for a concert date. Would definitely wear again!!

Great for when you aren't moving around much as the underskirt part is a little short and the slit is high but great for a girls day

Fun but comfy!

Love this skirt, its super comfortable and forgiving! The waist doesnt have any stretch so it seems to fit better a little higher on the waist. I loved the pockets and the pattern! And the split was really fun too and made it great for a super warm day.

Ok, didnt love it.

Fit true to size, Im usually a size 4/6 but have a small waist and larger hips. Had to pin waist a bit tighter. The pockets were annoying as not big enough to be useful but kept bunching up making me look bigger in hips. Was an ok skirt but i would not rent again and did not find it figure flattering.

Beautiful color

Lovely maxi. Wore it with black tank. The waist was a tad snug and it was a bit long so i hiked it above my natural waist then it fit fine and that even made the length perfect. Really a pretty skirt.

Omg. LOVE.

I dont think i could love this skirt any more than I do. I NEVER repeat outfits but I have worn this TWICE this week. I paired it with a tighter cotton long sleeve black top (tucked in) and black leggings underneath with black booties. It is too cold for sandals and off the shoulder shirts here. I will say that if you dont wear leggings, you need to wear bike shorts or something because it has a split all the way up the front and when you sit down, the little built in slip rides up. I have never had so many people in one day tell me how good I look. I will be renting thjs again.

Love this skirt

This is a dreamy skirt. However, it is pretty fitted in the waist and was too tight for me. I couldn't wear it. It was very long, too. I really wish I could have worn it. Very flattering and flowy. A built-in mini skirt to offset the open slit to the waist, and pockets! I rented this as a 4 day and couldn't exchange it for a bigger size because they require you to return your entire shipment, and I had a dress that fit that I needed for an event. Very disappointed in their returns process. This is also the second time I was missing the return label.

Pretty and flowy

The skirt waist runs small. I could have probably fit into a 6 better, but it was wearable. Very pretty vibrant colors, great movement. Downside was the underskirt was too short and the pockets made my hips look a little wider. But still cute skirt.

I sized up to a 10 to avoid a too tight waistband and the fit was great. Easy to wear and pair with various tops. Long and flowy for us tall ladies!

Amazing! I want to buy this!

I ADORE this skirt. It sits high on the waist, and I am lucky enough to have a small waist so it fit perfectly. For people that have a thicker waist, you may want to size up. I am 5' 7" and the length was perfect, except while going up stairs, when I had to gather it or else I would step on it. The slit up the side is perfectly placed, even if it was a bit high cut. (There is a very short black underskirt.) The colors are lovely, it flows beautifully. I felt very elegant, but not overdressed wearing this on vacation. While staying in an extravagant beach house, I said, "I feel like I could own this house." The pockets could be a bit deeper, they will not accommodate an iPhone 7 Plus. I will be keeping an eye on the clearance sale for this skirt, as I would love to buy it, but Free People no longer sells it.

Super fun skirt!

Super fun maxi skirt with a slit in the front that overlaps so it's entirely possible that you don't notice it unless the wind blows or you're walking fast. There is a thin black mini skirt liner underneath just in case the slit opens up. Needed to wear fairly high heels for the length to work. Overall, I loved it. Felt like I was floating :)
