Under $5 : BB Dakota Skirt in Sz 0

September 07, 2010

Last week I posted about this skirt that I found on PLNDR, it cost merely $4.94 after discounts and including shipping. I was also excited about trying on more BB Dakota things after seeing how nicely some of their things look on Jen. I was worried the 0 would be way too small on me as I have like 20 pounds on the aforementioned petite blogger.

The skirt came in a sealed bag, a good start, I would say. Frankly, the skirt looked rather large sitting in the bag.


I soon found out that BB Dakota is likely another brand that has inconsistent sizing. This skirt fits smaller than the BB Dakota dress in XS that I have but is still a rather large skirt.


This is how it looked on the model. I am happy that it looks much longer on me (as expected, as I am only 5'2)


I wouldn't otherwise keep a skirt that fits poorly but it wouldn't make any economical sense for me to return something this cheap...the return shipping alone will probably cost more than what I spent on the skirt.

I wouldn't be opposed to giving this skirt away though if anyone is interested.

  1. Wow- the waist is so big! I don't understand why companies are so inconsistent with their sizing!

    It could be really cute if paired with the right top and if the waist fit! Your waist is tiny :)

    P.S. I am adding you to my blogroll :)

  5. Holy cow! That skirt is huge on you. I can't believe it's size 0. It's a good thing that it only costs $5 bucks

  6. Really Petite - aww, thanks! I love your blog, it's such an honor.

    Girlie Blog - from a distance it looks ok but I tried wearing a tank top with this and it was obvious that the waist gap is abnormal. I think it fits my hips fine but I think it's meant for someone with a different body shape.

    Curves - aww, you are sweet.

    Ping - shhh, those are actually heels. :)

    PLG - It's only big around the waist, I think the length and the hips are fine. I just have to figure out how I can work to eliminate the gap. $5 is probably as much as I would spend on something as ill-fitted as this skirt though.

  8. The skirt is cute, Elle! Sorry it was a bit too large, but it actually doesn't look that bad from the front. Ure right, it's definitely more economical to keep it than return the skirt. Such a steal! I really need to check out PLNDR:)

  9. I'm so sorry the skirt doesn't fit! It's really cute so I'm sure that's super disappointing for you. :(

  10. My, my you are a tiny waisted girl!! Boo, too bad on the skirt though. It does look kinda square on your frame and it should show off your curves!

  11. Ines - I agree with you. I just really don't like the crowds, having to sift through racks and racks of clothes to find the right size, and having to wait an hour for a fitting room, kwim?

    Owl - It doesn't look too big from the front in the picture, I should've taken a picture of me wearing a top while wearing the skirt, it made me look really oddly shaped.

    Melissa - I am a little disappointed too, but it didn't cost very much so I am not exactly heartbroken.

    Hanna - I am not very tiny waisted at all, I think this skirt just happened to run large. I try really hard to create the illusion of curves so when boxy things come my way it makes me feel rather sad. :(
