No, I actually took my skirt off but it does button fine. But I see what you mean, I think it's just a weird DC flaw but the jacket does rock. I thought I was the only one who thought the buttons on the skirt was weird.
I ordered the jacket and I was so excited to get it but when I tried it on, it didn't fit. I love DC jackets but they can run small so curvy girls beware. But other than that, the jacket is super cute and good for the cold weather.
I love these boots. Very comfy. I found them on Dogfunk for the cheapest. Only downside is if you have a wide calf, you have to cut the tongue so it is not connected to the rest of the boot. But after that is done, they are the best.
