My Sparrow Lace Kimono in the Golden Orange is just as I thought, it's a very nice color. I ordered the XL, well because it doesn't come in an XXL, but it fits perfect. For petite girls I would size down. I pretty much knew I would really like this piece because I have 4 of the longer version. So feminine but yet versatile and stylish. You can dress up boot-cut or leggings with a nice cami or tank or a t-shirt! The sleeve length is a short 3/4 length whereas the longer version is a longer length 3/4 sleeve (which I love in that cardigan) because it's longer in length. A very nice staple for my wardrobe or any wardrobe!
