Jaquard Missive (Eva Franco) Skirt Review


This Eva Franco skirt called the Jacquard Missive is one I've seen before albeit in a different pattern/fabric. It is the newest version of the Aniseed skirt from last year. I spotted the fabric from across the room, as the skirts were folded and sitting on a table. Sadly my store only had tiny sizes and one singular 12. I grabbed the 12 to try and it was too big/voluminous. But regarding the quality and look of the skirt, I actually like this one much more . The fabric is more substantive, and the colors are richer and more vibrant than the simple stripes of the Aniseed.


I *think* the Aniseed above is a size 10 which was a better fit than the 12. I'd say this one runs on the small side of true to size. And I will  be wishlisting this one for sure! (Speaking of exposed slips, please excuse mine in photo 1. I forgot to bring in a proper top haha).

I agree, this skirt is lovely. The shape of the Aniseed is nice, but the print on this one is so much prettier.

I don't know if it looked the same in real life, but in the photo the color of your top actually looks really nice with the skirt!

Lovely skirts. I love the print and the volume.

Oh, I agree that this new rendition of the skirt is much more appealing (to me, anyway) than the striped version. Thanks for the review!

Funny, that doesn't look like a slip at all! It looks like you paired it with that skirt. Beautiful skirt- I love the volume.

Wow it already went on sale! I guess I haven't been paying attention to what is in store cause I thought this was a new item. Anyway, even though I love the print, I can't bring myself to buy it even for sale price.

Thanks for the kind compliments, you guys!!

RachelIP, it is funny how it kind of matches and picks up the color in the skirt. I didn't realize it til you pointed it out. Thanks for reading!

Thirteenlbs, the slip was something I grabbed on sale. It is by Hanky Panky (the makers of the beloved lace thongs...haha). I really like it cause it is pretty and functional. Thanks for reading!
