Sadly this was not the right skirt for me.i realize I need to try everything on before I buy it. Though I returned the skirt , I got the most amazing dress called "Avaline" size 4 which fits like a glove!!! I had no intention of trying it on based on the photo on the website. I wish they still had the "Avalon open back" dress in black. I just went to BCBG today and they were just putting out another new dress which has black sequins on the top and a gorgeous black sheer skirt.....I wish they put this out from November....but I already got the "Avaline" less than a week ago and I prefer the sheer skirt on the Avaline dress. I cannot find any gorgeous& Well made dresses anywhere else that I love. I love the jackets for work....Every time I get a dress everyone asks where I got it....just LOVE BCBG!!!
