Rated 5 out of 5┬áby weakwindowshopper better than photo
I bought this in Vancouver, which only had the grey unfortunately. It's stunning, and for 100$ I feel like I just got a extremely versatile piece- looks great with faded jeans or a short black drapey skirt. From a coffee shop to work - yea! Plus hand washable (my new goal after spending 100$ to have 3 pieces dry cleaned lately). I bought it to do some urban travelling - a 'tshirt' with real zip. The Obi is attached to the shirt.
I agree with the other reviewer that it looks better with some curves and that it runs large. It looks like it is overwhelming the model in the photo - but properly sized I feel like my curves are showing it off - I'm 5'8" and 30E with small hips and butt (yes top heavy) 130 lb and the M was too low for me. I have a bit of a belly and the Obi and drape are perfect camouflage.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Tracilaroo Better in person than on model shot
This top is gorgeous. The belt is not as wide as it appears in my opinion. I have a larger bust and smaller hips compared to the models shape and I think it works better for my body type. It runs true to size maybe a little on the big side if you have small shoulders as the neck is cut wide. I think it's a gorgeous top overall.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby MsKate Good theory, poor execution
I really wanted to love this top. So much so that on two separate occasions I tried it on in the store. I thought the obi waist would be flatering as it sits rather high on the midsection and I thought it would accentuate my smallest part. Unfortunately, it only accentuated my lower half. Ths obi band was too wide to successfully execute this theory. I have got some kickin' curves a.k.a. hips and this top did nothing to flatter me. Lithe bodies would probably enjoy this top, but I don't think it would work on anyone who doesn't have a dancer's body.
