A beautiful colour - brighter and more vibrant than what you can see in the pictures. This material is nice and light, making it perfect for inbetween seasons, esp Autumn. I have a27 inch waist and I like the size 10 - can adjust the buttons to make it fit smaller when needed.

My skirt arrived today and it’s my first ever item from House of Foxy. But it certainly won’t be my last!! It is utterly gorgeous! I love the check, the weight and feel of the fabric are just so, and the silhouette looks really great on (it took me a while to decide whether to buy a whirlaway skirt as I’m a size 22 so wasn’t sure if it would look nice on but I needn’t have worried!) The pocket and side buttons are a lovely addition too. And all the help I received from you during the whole process was fantastic. Thank you thank you thank you! Now which one shall I get next...
