Review: Madewell pleated skirt in stripe

Have had this pleated skirt in stripe from Madewell for a few months ago, purchased during one of the extra off sale.  I have paired it with a red belt and the J.Crew pleated lace-stripe silk shirt also worn here.

Review of the Madewell skirt below.

Pros: comfortable, loving the stripes, the subtle pleats, the tiny waist straps for the belt, the A-line is cute and the length is decent

Cons: A little puffy which results in a faux-belly look

Fit: true-to-size to slightly large

Material: combination of linen and silk

Sissi’s verdict: keeper!

Do you agree? Please share!  The skirt is also reviewed by One More Shopping Blog.

Halcyon by Anthropologie – OI 17 Sept 2013

Love this dress, so classy and girly (feminine they say in English 🙂 )!  I had to size up and let the hem down to have a decent fit at the knees (taller than the norm).  Looks decent now.  Let me know what you think!
