"i was so upset when this went out of stock in the white, and when i saw the black slowly slipping away in my size xs, i decided to grab it. hesitant about the color and length, i was rather certain this wouldn't work out but i wanted to try it anyway. the lace looks so amazing on the models! i just received this in the mail today and oh my lord, i am speechless. this is the absolute most gorgeous piece i have boughten from free people to date. made of a durable, thick lace, this is breathtaking. i am petite, and let me say that this is by no means a maxi skirt. on me, it is a maxi dress, but it looks so good as such! i can wear it in a number of ways: i pulled it up over my breasts to show just a little ankle (with heels!) and it looked beautiful. i can wear it with the top pulled up to just below my breasts for a maxi skirt in its only possible form for someone my size and it also looks lovely. at both times i paired it with the seamless romper in black and a vintage sliver belt. i decided to play with the fit a little more and pulled the front of the skirt up towards my breasts and cinched it with the belt to create a high, flirty hemline in the front and a long, sexy hemline in the back. again, omg, i cannot believe i was ever even skeptical of this, it is so versatile and in the end i am glad i bought the black. for petite girls like me, heels are a must, i also worked it with the jeffrey campbell joe lace-ups in black, which also looked phenomenal. you really just can't go wrong with this, so many ways to wear, what a beautiful, outstanding piece. thank you FP!!!"
