I decided to keep this red skirt from Banana Republic despite the fact that the pleats don't go all the way around the back (see my previous post here). Afterwards I looked through my closet and noticed that I have a serious lack of red. In fact my only other red article of clothing is this sweater.
I discovered the skirt has pockets which is a plus. They are sewn shut but you can cut the thread to free open the pockets. The skirt is unlined but it's not see through due to the color. In 0 petite the waist measures approximately 13 1/4" (it sits loosely on my waist) and it's 19" long so it hits above the knee (for reference I'm 5' 2 1/4"). In the spring/summer my waist naturally usually goes back down to 25" so hopefully it won't be too big and it will lay better on me.
While making my decision I came up with a few outfits with other items in my closet to ensure that it's versatile. However, I was extremely frustrated that I kept on putting together red and white outfits as shown above. Save for the first look, I actually don't think I'd wear the other looks out but these pictures show the different sides of the skirt for anyone else that may be on the fence about it.
