I'll admit I've been stalking this skirt on the LOFT website for awhile now. The regular size version has been available for awhile, but it was only recently that the petite version came online. I first saw it on Tara and knew I had to have it. Doesn't it just scream spring to you? The colors are absolutely gorgeous. If I had a dime for every time someone complimented me on the skirt today, I would have 40 cents! This skirt is a moneymaker, I tell ya! :)
On the downside, I think the fit of the skirt leaves much to be desired. The hips fit decently but it doesn't seem to taper at all as it goes up to the waist. In fact, there was such a huge gap it kinda looked like I was pregnant (or had a fupa) from the side. Oh the disappointment! Unfortunately, straight off the racks I cannot recommend this skirt for petites unless you're ok with alterations. I'm planning to take it to my tailor (aka mom) this weekend and see if she can save it from being returned.
Meanwhile, how awesome is it that at 6pm it's still light out?! I cannot wait for daylight savings time to come around!
P.S. In case you missed it:
