Rated 5 out of 5┬áby KitkatTX Beautiful Floral Peasant Blouse!
I loved this from the moment I saw it in store. I'm a size small/6-8 and the small fits perfectly.
The fabric and dressmaker details are gorgeous! The colors are absolutely beautiful and a "must purchase" if you love floral prints. From the smocked-and-tied neckline to the tucked and black fagoting-trimmed elasticized bracelet-length sleeves, this blouse is a winner.
The sleeves are way too pretty to stuff into a jacket or cardigan sleeve, so wear this with a sleeveless vest. I love mine topped with Anthro's grey Ribbed High-Low Sweatervest over skinny jeans with tall boots, booties or flats.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby bridget Great for layering
I had to check out this blouse since it's 100% silk and has a pretty floral pattern for which I have a weakness. I really liked it IRL, the silk feels luxurious and it flows well. If you're in-between sizes I'd suggest going with the smaller (I chose M over L), with the caveat that the blouse is fairly narrow in the hips - I have a pretty straight build (i.e. next to no hips) and the only reason I tried on L was to get a bit more space in that area, however the L just swallowed me on top. I found the pattern a little bit too bold/busy to wear alone (though it can be pulled off when paired with something very simple like jeans or a black skirt), but I think it will work great layered under a sweater or jacket. More pretty silk blouses like this one please, Anthro!

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Adonosch Pretty Blouse
This top looked "shiny" or more "sateen-ish" to me in the photo but is more of a flat fabric. The details around the wrist are so pretty. The fit is true to size but I was surprised that it is a little bit longer than expected, but still nice. My colours seemed a little softer than what is shown in the picture. The fabric is light and airy and would be perfect for summer evenings.
