Ancient Myths Maxi skirt review
I loved the print and the finish of the easy, saturated Ancient Myths maxi skirt. The elastic waist made me think it would be perfect for a beach vacation, easily thrown over a bathing suit as a dress or a skirt. I only tried it as a skirt. I grabbed my regular size 8 and that was a fine fit. The length was alright on me (I am 5'3) but would probably be too short on taller gals (as I didn't try the petite length). I did hike it up to wear at my natural waist so it could be longer if worn lower. It has pockets and is fully lined with a similarly airy cotton fabric. At $88 I think it is a little high in price for something you could likely find for cheap from a street vendor in any urban metropolis, but the print of the fabric is very lovely and unique. Personally, I will wait for a sale and revisit. I don't know if I can pull off the maxi trend, as much as I adore seeing it on a range of body types.
