I've barely had this skirt a week but it's already worth its weight in gold for conversation starters. I put it on the instant it arrived in the mail--much to the amusement of my roommates. One even took a picture of it on her phone so she could show it to her friends and family when I wasn't present in said skirt...Yes, this skirt is pure entertainment in fabric form. Whatever other people's reactions to it, I'm quite delighted by the whimsical piece. Vivetta (the design house responsible for this teddy bear construction) always has sweet designs; a few seasons ago they introduced a cat skirt of a very similar style. This one feels as fuzzy as a real teddy bear and brings a smile to my face as easily. I do enjoy clothes with a sense of humor.
