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.

Just Beautiful!

This skirt is amazing! It has a short black "mini skirt" underneath which is necessary because there is a side slit up the entire length of the skirt. The slit is somewhat hidden, so your legs are only exposed when walking with big strides or in the wind. The only downside was that this skirt is VERY long. I'm 5'4 and even with my tallest heels, it was too long. I also thought the waist was a bit big. The waist has a zipper and button, so be mindful when choosing size; it is not elastic. Overall, the colors are beautiful and I did receive many compliments.

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.

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!

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.

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.

So many compliments!

I absolutely loved this skirt! The slit is very high, but there is a black mini underneath (its very mini!). When standing still, the slit isn't noticeable, but when walking or sitting it opens a lot. It's a beautiful skirt, very comfortable!

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.

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.

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.

Size up!

I recommend sizing up if you want it sitting at your true waist. The fabric was beautiful and I got a lot of complements! Wore to a couple memorial day weekend parties!

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.

Very feminine- got lots of compliments

I loved this skirt! It's very versatile, easy to dress up and dress down. It's very flowy and light and I didn't feel weighted down with fabric. I usually wear petite sizes and rented this on in size 6R, it was a bit long but wearing the dress with 1.5" to 2" heels helped keep the skirt from dragging on the floor. If this skirt every goes on sale, I'm buying it!

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.

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

Lots of material - good daytime skirt

Wouldn't order this again, but it worked for an easy daytime lunch with friends. Hit right at the floor with a higher waist. There are pockets that get a little wrinkled and can add bulk to the sides for he skirt - which is already very fabric-y. Fits true to size.

This skirt is adorable with the high slit that shows the little underskirt when you walk! Too long so I had to wear platform sandals with it. Highly recommend this!

Great colors and movement!

I rented this skirt to wear out to dinner in Costa Rica. For the occasion, it was perfect. It was a little bit tight in the waist since there is no give, but, the fabric was beautiful. It was also a little bit long for me and I am 5'6".

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?

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.

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!

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.

This skirt was amazing!

The is more of a high-waisted fit SIZE UP! The length was perfect and the weight of the material made it so beautiful to walk in. I wore this for a dinner date downtown and could not stop looking at the skirt in each window that I passed on our stroll after dinner.

rolled up and used a safety pin

Super flowy and cute skirt. It's too long for 5'2" height, so I rolled up on the waist and used a safety pin to keep the slit part closed.

Wore this w/a fitted halter top to balance out the volume. Love the skirt, just be prepared with Spanx or legging underneath - it's a faux-wrap w/a high slit.

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!!

Very swishy!

Wore to a Luau in Hawaii. After dinner I had to open the zipper on the side because I was STUFFED. Lots of skirt fabric so it swishes when you walk. It's too long for flats, so plan on wedges or heels. Did not have an issue with the slit opening when I walked ever, wouldnt have even known it was there.

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.
