I wore these 2 skirts to work with the same sweater a few weeks apart. The heavy fabric is great for winter & both skirts have a raised pattern, so even though they are a solid color...there's a bit of fun going on up close. I bought the burgundy skirt because it was only $15 & I have a lot of tops I can wear with it. The waistband on these is awkward...thick & gets easily twisted, which adds bulk...they are also a bit long. I guess the thing is...I didn't feel pretty in these skirts, they felt dowdy on & had I spent the day wearing it, I probably wouldn't have bought it even for as cheap as it was. It's not the skirts fault...I just need pretty patterns. As always with Lucie Lu, I size up one since they run small. 
I like the way the wind caught the skirt & belled out the bottom...if only it lay that way on its own.
