beautiful... for the fall
I adore this skirt, which I got in a 34 on sale in black. I would not pay full price, as the fabric is not very luxurious as someone else commented and I would prefer wearing it with nylons to create a buffer for my skin. That said- I had no problem with the fit, which is intended to be an ultra high waist cut (this should remedy the unflattering rolls at the waistline) and it is ultra slimming and elongating. Another problem I had with this skirt is that the material is way too thick for summer and it will be hanging in my closet waiting for crisper evenings that are just around the corner, sadly.

love this dress
The 3.1 Phillip Lim collection from 2011 spring and summer has been my favorite and this dress evokes why. It is simultaneously demure and sexy with a playful and fun take on a classic style. The feminine cut is tailored very well and fits true to size (I wear a 0: 5'.5" ft- 115lbs). The length is perfect for me, skimming my ankles and easy to wear with flats or heels. The fabric is so light and airy that you barely feel like you are wearing anything at all- I wish I could wear this dress everyday during this insane nyc heat wave. I did wear this to a wedding rehearsal dinner in May and felt that is was dressy enough and delivered an effortless and understated elegance.

understated elegance
I like this dress, which I plan to wear at a wedding. I was afraid I would have to return it if the colour looked white, but it is definitely grey, and the light flowing fabric and high neck line make this dress sweet, demure and elegant. I am 5'5.5'' tall (size 0) and this dress will be the perfect length with 3.75-4'' heels. It is also a nice cut for smaller chested women as myself, because it adds volume to the top adding proportion to my physique, while showing a little skin in the back, which is my favorite part of the cut and tailoring.
