I think what I didn't like is the raised texture. It reminds me of a shiny scar. I think the silver threading appeared a bit cheap in contrast to the fabric. If I recall correctly, I didn't care for how the fabric felt. Keep in mind that I have textural issues and get the heebie jeebies easily. As I recently said about another skirt, Loft nailed their jacquard last year so I'm partial to theirs. I don't think this is a daytime skirt, though. You could wear it as one, but I imagine it's better for nicer events, including evening where it would shine.
Twinkle linen pleat waist skirt (239869) - Size 6P - This didn't twinkle as much as I expected. I'd be curious to see the grey color, which might have a little more pop. I didn't like the fit of this. However, I was in a rush. If you like it on the hanger, you should try it on. You may get a different feeling. Loooooooooves the pockets. That's always a hit w/me.
Triomphe jacquard pencil skirt (239867) - Size 6P - I like the idea of yellow, but I don't wear it much as I have yellow undertones in my skin. I liked the texture of this skirt. I seem to be a 6P in the pencil skirts and 4P in some of the fuller skirts.
Palais floral pencil skirt - This skirt is pretty upon closee inspection. Talbots is with the times. If you hover over the image, you can zoom all around the skirt for the closer look. No need to click and wait for another window to pop up. Windows that sometimes never pop up at all (shaking finger in another direction). I also love that they now show the Woman sizes on models who are actually that size. This was a Facebook request made by Talbots fans and the company implemented it. It means more work for plus models(!) and customers have a better idea of how an item will look on them. Awesome. Back to the skirt. Those little grape clusters could hit a funny area on the hips, but I don't think it'd be a huge issue. I like the tones in this.
Shadow wash denim skirt - A respectable length. I like the waist tab and the fact that it has belt loops. Good for the boot scootin' boogie. (slaps knee) There's also a white one.
Parachute sash skirt - I can't claim to be a fan of button front skirts, but I like the sash tie. I would try this skirt on for that alone.
Fluid crepe pencil skirt - This is online only. Remember, you can order in-store from the red phone. All orders get free shipping when you do.
