"Thanks!" to Tigs who shared with us her great review (plus several real-life images) of this skirt.
I purchased the Wendy Retro-Chambray Skirt, item 12971, regular size 4, at full price a few weeks ago. It was $78.00 and is currently on promotion for $59.50.
I loved this skirt when I purchased it but have not worn it yet. I've read a few negative comments about it, and after reading Gigi's review today (click here) decided to try it on again to see what I was missing. Well, I agree it does nothing for my figure either.
I'm 5'7", 133 lbs, most of which I'm carrying on my hips and waist. I wear a size 6 in JCrew pants (cords, chino's, cargos, etc.) and skirts. I sized down one time to a size 4 in this skirt.
The Wendy has a "kilt-like" vibe to it in my opinion. I took some quick shots of it (excuse me, I didn't have time/am too lazy to create an outfit). A long fitted top out over the skirt helps the look but due to the buttons on the front waist band, you can't really get away with this look. Ideally I'm guessing it should be worn with a top tucked in and a long cardigan over it, as JCrew is showing in their pictures.
If I wanted to put some work into removing the buttons I could but there are other skirts that would require less work, and I just don't love the style of the skirt enough to put work into it. Hope this helps someone else make a decision. I'm sure it would look smashing on A Bigger Closet who is model thin!
"Thanks!" again to Tigs for her great review!
