This is a beautiful piece! It was mostly sold out, so I had to buy a size bigger than what I wear, so the waist needs to be taken in before I can wear it. It is also too long, and I'm hoping the hem can be taken up enough without placing the lowest fish on the hemline. I can't wear heels, so that solution is out. Please note that the darkest shade of blue in the ombre is royal, as shown in the 4th photo and in the #XOQ PHOTO, and not the lighter turquoise shown in the first 3 photos. I love the deeper blue color! The skirt is fully lined. The bottom of the skirt is not ivory or white, although it looks closer to white than ivory. It is like white with a tiny bit of pale blue or grey in it. I'm working on finding varios tops to go with it, since I sadly missed the crochet bustier sea shell top :-( I may try to make something similar. In buying this, I'm taking Teresa Maccapani Missoni's challenge to step outside my comfort zone! If you look at photos of her, she basically wears only long dresses, and it is a wonderful look!
