great skirt
10.2.2013
"I bought this in the faded denim blue stripe in med and it fits exactly as it does on model, just slightly longer. I'm 5"4', 127 lbs with 28 " waist. waist sits at natural waist and does not pinch. the material is a thin linen mix that when washed on cold, delicate setting, hung to dry and fluffed a minute or so on no heat in dryer, comes out looking exactly as it does in picture. Good quality, can be worn in winter with warm tights and sweater. love it!"

LOVE my RIO MAXI ivory combo skirt
9.30.2013
"I absolutely LOVE my CP shades Rio Maxi! I got the ivory combo, and it looks just like the model! It fits true to size, and is so sweet, and flirty, and for me, the right length on my 5'4" frame! I got a medium and feel great wearing this! The price is so great for this skirt! It is made very well! I have worn my skirt with the FP peplum black top, and it's perfect! Will add a picture this weekend (thankful for the warm fall weather!)."

Cute!
9.25.2013
"I bought 2 of these skirts. I'm 5'4" and the skirt is still 2-3 inches above my feet. For work, I'd wear a slip underneath, especially for the floral versions as it's definitely more sheer than the blue. I examined the stitching because of the other review about tearing and the stitching seems secure. But the material is thin and if I stepped on the hem, I'm sure it would rip. But I have other clothes made of linen and I'd say the same thing about any linen that's thin. Nevertheless, I think these skirts are very cute, wearable, and comfortable. The elastic waist makes it very forgiving in terms of sizing. I plan on keeping both. An extra star was added for the style which I love."

Extremely poor quality!
9.15.2013
"I got this skirt in blue stripe. It's made out of very VERY cheap linen. After the first wash on a hand wash cycle (I washed it by itself, before wearing it), the skirt frayed at stitches and it tore at one of the stitches. I can't even stitch it back, imagine stitching cheese cloth... :( This is a huge disappointment.... At $130 for a skirt, one should expect quality?"
