I got a lot of compliments on my attire during my company holiday party. I paired this ivory Billabong skirt with a satin halter blouse. In this skirt you can be both fun & sexy yet elegant. Two downsides to this item. First, the texture of the lace is not what I expected at all. It's not light, soft or flowy. It's more like a thick lace tablecloth. Also, I wish that it was a little longer in the back because when I wore it the back looked shorter than the front which made it difficult to walk in. Perhaps a person with a flat butt will have better luck with this issue. All in all, the appearance was positive but had I tried it on in store I would not have purchased it.
