I have been looking for a button up shirt like this that is loose, but not big and bulky. While it is a top that is supposed to have alot of extra fabric, it is flowy and hangs very nice on. Some tops like this, even at anthro, will end up having no shape and feels like youre wearing a giant pillow case with holes cut out for your neck and arms. hahaha but NOT this one. This is the good fabric. It hangs on you and just feels so silky against your skin. Cant explain it, but if you are like me and in search for that perfect button up casual look, get this one, because they did this one right! I usually wear xs or s in anthro, I got xs in this, it is made big anyway, so the xs is fine. The small looked baggy, but not in a good way. Im 5'8" and 130lbs 32b if that helps out any. I also wear a 0 in the dresses usually.

Great shirt, fabulous feel and drape
This is a shirt I am glad I bought. It will be worn. The material is rich and has a nice drape. I love the split in the back for extra styling and flow. It's going to be one of those shirts that, for my taste and appearance, will have to be ironed -- not looking forward to that. It's would be necessary, I think, to keep that expensive flow. Glad I bought it.

Go to shirt for the summer
Another staple in my wardrobe for the summer. I have several of the Ashby Buttondowns in different colors. This top is flattering and so easy to wear with almost anything - from slacks to jeans to even shorts. I even had a women stop me in the airport to ask about this shirt.
Even though the name of the blouse is "peasant," nothing peasant about it. First, kudos for a real silk blouse and not synthetic fabric. It may look delicate but it's well sewn. However, one must take the blouse on and off a bit more careful and a t-shirt because, after all, it's sheer silk. Speaking of sheer, this blouse is very see through so a tank top is a must. A Georgetown-DC sales associate suggested that this blouse can be worn over a tank dress, brilliant idea of multi-tasking! The fabric flows beautifully and I like the muted flower print to make the lace details shine. It shows off my figure and hides the flaws, love it. Thanks to the previous reviewer for the tips about sizing. I'm 34B and regular size Small fits me perfectly, both width and length. I haven't came across a unique blouse like this in a long time. I think it's worth the price because the designer put a lot of thought and talent into this blouse.

I'm loving all of the sheer tops for spring/summer, and this one is no exception.
It's got a whole lot going on (printed, sheer silk; textured bib; crochet trim) but manages to ring simple, casual and comfortable. It is, admittedly, a bit short for my taste, but it works. Also, for what it's worth, the sleeves are not necessarily sleeves as there is no seam underneath (I'm sure there is a technical term for this, but I'm at a loss).
I'm still not sure whether this can be worn without a cami. The silk is definitely sheer, but it's *not* sheer around the bust area. I'm including two pictures, one with a white cami and one with a nothing but a bandeau bra underneath. I think in a more casual atmosphere, sans cami is fine.
I normally wear a size XS, but the store I was at only had a S and it fit fine.
For reference: 120 lbs, 5'4", 36B-27-27 and I purchased a S.

Love this top. Very feminine, whimsical, with a vintage look and feel. Yes, it is shear but not at the bust area where the heavier lace is. I am 5'4" 125, 34C and bought the XS.
I purchased this top in my Anthro store a few days ago and can't wait to wear it. It fit beautifully, I got a medium, usually I am a medium/large and was so glad it fits my bust (40DD) and is so cute. The drape is very flattering as is the hanky hem which falls about mid thigh. The picture really does not capture the lovely pink flowing material and subtle details. I plan to wear this with a black pencil skirt and white capris for a trip to Palm Springs. It is a splurge but with the fit, color and cuteness I will wear it all summer. I do recommend a nude color racer back bra.

Just gorgeous! More colors please!
First I was skeptical. But then I read the positive reviews and decided to buy this top. So glad I made this purchase. This top falls so nicely. Makes me look 10 pounds slimmer. More colors please!!!

I just bought this at the store today! It is really beautiful. Very soft and light fabric, and it goes with jeans, skirts and pants, really versatile. Probably what I like most about this tank is that I am currently 5 months pregnant and it fits great with tons of room to grow. It is a great pre-during-and-post baby shirt! I know most of you reading this won't be looking for maternity clothes, but if you are, or plan to be, this is a great purchase! And it will be perfect to hide the post baby belly late this summer after I have the baby!
When I first got this, I wasn't sure - I'd become completely obsessed with it, because it wasn't available for so long, so I had very high expectations. I've decided to keep it, but this is a top better suited to younger buyers. It's so sweet, it's almost cloying, and it needs to be styled properly to avoid being too fussy. I tried a lot of things until I finally paired with khakis and some long bohemian necklaces to keep everything else simple and neutral. There's a lot going on with this blouse. It's flowy, and has very little shape, but is definitely comfortable. It's not blue, as described; it's a light mint green, as the picture suggests. It's completely sheer and the fabric is quite delicate, so a tank is definitely in order. I think this is a top where I'll have to live with imperfection, because it already has a couple pulls in it, even though I've only worn a couple times and have been very careful. For whatever reason, the sleeves seem to ride up a little. Accommodates a large bust without pulling or puckering.

Soft and flowing
LOVE this blouse. I received so many compliments. I love the fit and the softness of the blouse. I like the vintage look but love the soft and romantic style of this blouse!

This blouse is so on trend for 2015 with a beautiful yet not overbearing floral print that can be paired with shorts, jeans, or a skirt for a put together look. Well worth the higher price point, as you get what you pay for. Its just perfect!
I love this top. It got the XS and it fits me pretty oversized but still looks good. The photos online do not do it justice. It needs to be tried on in order to really see how it looks. The only con to this is that the fringe at the end is looped instead of loose ends so it get caught on literally everything. You just need to be careful when wearing it.

Just purchase this today from my local Anthro. This top is more stunning in person, it is high quality and has a very nice weight to it. Yes it is bit pricey but it is definitely worth every penny, you will not be disappointed!

I love this top! it gets stuck on my jewelry but otherwise its great. Lots of people asking where I bought it from.
An easy piece with clean, flattering lines & soft fabric. Love the ombre & unique details (back vent, decorative stitching, sleeve seams). A standout in a sea of peasant tops, I'm hoping this will see me through many seasons to come.
I have broad shoulders & my usual size Small was fine, but a little snug across the shoulders.

I originally ordered this top in size XS however it was very large overall. An XSP popped back in my size so I grabbed it and the sizing is better. It fits just like the model pic. For reference, I'm 5'4" and 100 lbs.
The material is very soft and the ombre effect is subtle and nice.I love the extra little details on this top - the tulip sleeves, split-bottom back and the X stitching.
Mine has a very tiny black mark that appears to be right in the fabric but I'm still keeping it as it's not too noticeable and XSP is still sold out.

Easy and adorable
I love this shirt! It's so comfortable and cute. The denim is super soft and I love the ombre. It think it fits true to size. I'm between an XS and S in anthro tops and I got the S because I liked the slight oversize look of it. The slit on the back of the shirt is really cute and not so high that it's flapping open and showing your back. It's a loose, easy, stylish shirt that I can see myself living in all summer!
WHEN I SAW THIS BLOUSE ONLINE I KNEW I HAD TO HAVE IT. I DON'T USUALLY SPEND THIS MUCH ON ONE TOP BUT THIS BEAUTY JUST SPOKE TO ME. IT'S AIRY, ROMANTIC, TIMELESS: PERFECT FOR THE MODERN DAY BOHEMIAN OR THE HOPELESS ROMANTIC. THE BLOUSE FITS TTS AND THE FABRIC IS EXTREMELY GOOD QUALITY. MY ONLY NEGATIVE IS THAT THE FABRIC ISN'T AS SOFT AS I EXPECTED IT TO BE, BUT OTHERWISE IT IS A DREAM COME TRUE WITH JEANS, SPARKLY SILVER FLATS AND AN OLD EMBROIDERED, SMALL PURSE.

This is the most adorable blouse. It has a slip inside so I didn't need to find a matching tank. the detail of pleats and embroidery on the front, on the shoulders and even on the back make the value of this garment outstanding,Bravo to the Anthro and to One Fine Day.. for such a gorgeous blouse!!!!

Pretty, but sheer
This top is very pretty. It comes with an attached camisole for more coverage however the cami is just as sheer as the top so it defeats the purpose. I'm going to have to remove the cami and replace with one that isn't sheer or wear three layers. Otherwise it's true to size (L) but I'm a little worried it looks like a maternity top on me so I don't know if I'm keeping it yet.
