Review: J. Crew Factory Pencil Skirt in Byzantine Blue

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew Factory Pencil Skirt in Byzantine Blue earlier this week.  I LOVE this vibrant color!  Here are a few IRL pictures:

Here is a picture of the inside lining of the skirt:

I think that this skirt is very sturdy; I am very happy with the quality.  I will get a lot of wear out of this beauty!  What do you think of this skirt?  Do tell!  See this skirt on the lovely AudreyBella of the wonderful blog Life is Short…Buy the shoes here.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I love that color, but my purple factory skirt from last Spring literally fell apart at the seams. I hope their quality improved bc the color is lovely!

    Is the color very different from the No. 2 retail skirt in Casablanca blue? I saw the Factory one in person but had nothing to compare it to.

    AppGal!! I think that the Factory version of this skirt is a little darker. The color is not completely different though!Thanks for being here!!

    I love this skirt on you!! Looks great and very tempting, need to branch out with more color in my wardrobe and you are definitely helping in that area. Thanks so much for the reviews.

    MB!! Thanks SO much!! I really like this skirt. I own the retail No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Cotton in the Casablanca Blue too, but I wear pencil skirts so much that I could justify grabbing this one too. And, I hear you about color. I used to resist color. Now, I gravitate to bright clothing! You're very welcome about the reviews. I am so glad that you find them helpful!Thanks SO very much for being here; I really appreciate it!!!
