Banana Republic Tweed Pencil Skirt - Runs Tiny!

With the onset of winter, I've been keeping a keen eye out for textures in petite sizes. Tweed, boucle, basketweaves ... I want it all! Last winter I was unsuccessful in my search for the perfect basic tweed skirt, so imagine my joy when I came across these at Banana Republic (a store that I personally thought had gone downhill as of late with their petite fit).
Previously, I saw these pencil skirts on the BR website, but at $90 the price deterred me. But in person, these skirts exceeded my expectations. The tweed is a nice consistency, the metal zipper is solid and sturdy, and both colors were staple winter wardrobe colors. Not to mention, the fit is tiny! I expected the 00p to be big on me, as usual, but instead it was very fitted and showed a little too much curve for work. I wouldn't have been able to eat all day in it, so I actually opted for size 0P**:

**note...ended up sizing back down to 00P

Banana Republic Tweed Skirt in Black Combo, 0p, $89.50
(H&M black top and tights, Nine West pumps)

For some reason the waist looks bigger on this one:

Yay! Another no alterations needed purchase. My alterations bill this year has totaled great heights, so my wallet was thankful for this find. Final cost with 25% off coupon code = $67 for each skirt. To me this is still quite expensive for a skirt. I can't decide whether to keep both or just one!
