The skirt just wasn't a pattern, nor cut, nor style that I would wear. I tried it on, but it just didn't work for me. I LOVED the pattern and details of the shirt I sent back, and the fit was find size-wise, but the cut made the shirt look like a bag on my body. Super cute, just not quite right.
I think the two pieces I kept are AMAZING! I spent more on both pieces (blouse & jeans) than I typically would, but the quality, fit, style, and feel were just SO INCREDIBLE I couldn't resist. I'm a TOTAL CHEAP-O when it comes to clothing...so you can believe it when I say that both pieces were worth the investment. This type of slow investment in higher quality pieces of clothing is a goal for me as I begin to makeover my closet wardrobe and replace some of the older, cheaper, less quality items I own!!
