Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Xiaosi Still Debating...
When I first saw this shirt in the ANTHRO perk alert, I just had to order it. It reminded me of Marc Jacobs' design back in early 2000, young, fun-loving and non-pretentious. But today when I opened the package, I was a bit disappointed. The material is thin and see-through. The worst part is the ruffle is not hemmed! Seriously, for a shirt at this price, it is hardly acceptable.
I am a fanatic about washing clothing that touches my skin. But this shirt definitely REQUIRES dry-cleaning. It's 30% silk. Plus, the un-hemmed ruffle may very likely start to fray after the first wash.
The only reason that I am still debating about the shirt is that when I try the entire outfit, meaning with the navvy skirt, the look is not bad, about 4 stars.
Sizing wise, the shirt fits to true size. I usually wear size 4 or 6. The size 4 fits me like a glove.

Rated 1 out of 5┬áby AnthrophileForever Buyer beware!
This shirt is made from the cheapest, thinnest, most see-through material! You absolutely must wear a substantial cami, tank, or long-sleeve shirt underneath this, because it is practically transparent....I can not believe this shirt was priced for more than twenty dollars...I've seen better quality at the dollar store. Definately returning this...It runs tru to size..I ordered an 8 (too big); I normaly wear a six[which would have been perfect), but I wanted the relaxed look of the model.....I'm sad because I so wanted this outfit to work....sigh...

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Scylla Too tight in the shoulders
The color, print and design idea are great of this shirt but the execution and cut horrendous. I'm always a size 2/Small (sometimes XS) but this shirt was so ridiculously tight in the shoulders that I couldn't even button it up. Perhaps if I size up to a 4 it might work...
And yes, it is somewhat see through but I didn't mind it being so. I don't think the fabric is tissue thin though; it is a very beautiful and delicate cotton/silk blend perfect for summer days.
