    The first thing I reach for...
    The other reviewers are right on about this top: the side slits are a tad high, the neckline is a tad low, it runs a tad short, and it wrinkles if you let it cool in the dryer. But even with all those mini-problems, I am absolutely in love with this shirt and wear it constantly. The pattern reads as bright and cheery, but not so bright it's going to compete with your face for attention. VERY flattering. I wear it without a camisole at home on the weekends and just let a cute bra peek out here and there, but it definitely requires something more beneath for work. It goes with absolutely anything. And it's exactly the sort of (washable!) blouse that I can throw on when I'm running around with my kids and feel cute and completely appropriate (stains not a problem) at the same time. I paid full price (which I never do) and it was worth every penny. This plus skinnies plus ankle boots and you're good to go!

    Pretty Pattern
    Contrary to other reviewers i feel the arm size is perfect, if not a bit large. I wear this top tucked in, and it does wrinkle at the bottom where it's tucked as the other reviewer complained, but since it's tucked you can't see that anyways. Wrinkling on the rest of the top during the day is not an issue. Also I don't see what people are saying about the back hem being cut abnormally shorter than the front? Mine does not have this issue at all. However there are very deep slits on the sides that do make tucking difficult because they go above the belt line about an inch. In agreement with others the fall leaf floral pattern is really stinkin' cute! It is cut very deep in the neck and I wear with a colorful tank otherwise it's guaranteed to flash people. Also the tank helps skin not show on the sides in that inch above the belt line where the side slits go up too far. The rayon makes this really flowy and soft. :) fits TTS

    Lovely shirt-runs small though!
    I saw the Llama's in my local anthro today, and being a lover of animal print tops, I had to have it. I have found the Maeve tops this season are running a little smaller than normal. I am a 36C, 5'8" and usually wear a 6 or 8 in all anthro tops. I tried the 8, and it seemed a bit too fitted for the style of the top, (which I think was styled on the model as a bit looser fit) so I ended up sizing up to a 12. I was shocked, but the length is better, and it's not too tight on the arms, nor does it pull across the chest. Don't be afraid of the larger size when you size up in this top- it's worth it if you love it!

    LOVE this top!
    I tried this on in a regular size 2 and a regular size 4. For reference, I am 5'1'' and 118 lbs and usually a size 2 in tops. I ended up sizing up to a size 4, so I'd say it runs small. The size 2 was pulling at the chest, which was surprising to me, since I am not large-busted. It was also very tight in the arms. So, girls with larger arms or busts will definitely want to size up. The top is very feminine. Despite it having a loose shape, it is very flattering. I love all the ruffles and the mix of lace and floral. The top is slightly longer in the back than in the front and has some added ruffle-like detailing in the back, which I found flattering. The top hit me at the top of my thighs in the front, which was fine. Overall, the top does not seem as boxy as pictured. The fabric is soft- and the top is machine-washable! The shirt has sheer lace panels, so for work I will definitely be wearing a cami. However, the panels are subtle, and, for a night out or dinner with friends, you can get away with not wearing a cami underneath. Overall, this was an immediate purchase for me.

    very flattering, runs small
    I'm petite, 32DD, usually size 4, but based on the reviews I ordered this in 6P. I'm glad I did, because even the 6P has a close fit in the bust and arms. The neck is quite a bit lower than shown on the model, but not so low that it shows cleavage or your bra. I did find that it gapped a bit between the first two buttons, but I can either pin it or wear the first button unbuttoned. Sometimes looser tops like this can made me look pregnant, but this one is very flattering. The length is perfect in the front, and the back is a bit longer, but not an extreme hi-low hem. It's really quite versatile - it can be worn on its own in warm weather, under a cardi or jacket, or even tucked into a skirt or high-waisted pants. The lace trim is a nice touch also. If you have a larger bust, shoulders or arms, or just want a more relaxed fit, I'd recommend going up a size.

    Pictures don't do it justice...
    This top is perfection! The details, the quality and the fit are all excellent! For reference I'm 5'3, 113 lbs and took my usual size 0. Like other reviews mention, the colors are more vivid in person, the neckline is a tad lower, but flattering, on me than the model, the cuffs have buttons, there are also buttons down the middle covered by a placket, crochet, not lace, details on the front and bottom of the top and the back hangs lower than the front. This is the type of quality and uniqueness I miss from Anthropologie! I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Beautiful Colors
    I fell in love with the coloring in this blouse and couldn't wait to get it home. The colors are as vivid in person as they are in the photos. The front and sleeves are a blouse material and the back is more like nice t-shirt material, making it even more unique. No quality issues with this at all though. I would typically take a medium petite in this, which is what I ordered, but the petite size emphasized my stomach in the wrong way, so I exchanged it for a regular medium, which I kept. For reference, I am 5'3", 36C, and curvy. I have worn this with the sleeves up and down and it works well either way. Very pleased with this purchase even though I wish it was lined rather than needing a camisole..

    so lovely
    I think it should be said that Anthro may need a new photographer. Or stylist. Or something. These photos are not depicting what the items really look like, and I think this top should be photographed on a brunette, or at least someone not so fair. I would never have looked at this top online. It looks so bad on the modelcompared to real life. I usually take a small in Tiny tops, but I took the xs in this one. For reference, I'm 5'7", 117, 34C, so sometimes the xs tops are a little tight, but this is incredibly flattering. It's low so I'll wear a cami, but the easy fit is so flattering, I can't wait to wear it. And the price is fabulous.

    Such a pretty blouse
    Every time I wear this blouse I get compliments. It's lightweight and comfortable. You can dress it up or down. The back is a jersey fabric and the front is silk. Great combination.

    These are a few of my favorite things...
    I certainly don't need another denim top, or something more with lace or zippers. But when you combine them all in one top, I had to try it on. Pefection!!! Soft denim (& I still love the ombré look), and just the right amount of feminine lace, set off with a little edginess from the zipper. It's an overused phrase, but this IS a go to top. Got multiple compliments just in the fitting room, while wearing it with my skinny jeans, booties & a long necklace. Absolutely multi seasonal, and worth every single penny. Haven't washed yet, so don't know how that will go but I do have 2 other Holding Horses blouses that wash nicely & have held up well. This runs a bit big, and of course is meant to be a little flowy, but I did size down from my normal size 6 in tops (34D, 127lbs, 5'5") to a 4. Still plenty of room in chest & shoulders. I like flowy, by not baggy or overwhelming, and you can kind of control that by how much of the lace on the sides you reveal/unzip

    Bought this shirt today and have been getting so many compliments! If I want a simpler look I pull the zipper down, and when I want a more feminine look I pull the zippers up :) An amazing shirt and so worth the money!

    LOVE this top! It's very flattering, the fabric is so soft, the quality of the cut and sticking is top notch AND you're kinda getting two tops in one because of the zippers (to open or close, that is the question!)

    Nice quality and great cut
    I always hesitate for a second before buying a peasant blouse (sometimes they're large and overwhelming), but I felt that this one was cut really well. I tried on a regular XS in the store, and it was large. I ordered the XXS petite, and found that the fit was great. The proportions are balanced, the body isn't too boxy but it has flow. The sleeves are slim enough to not overwhelm your body, but they have movement. I like that the gathering detail at the shoulders add interest but lie relatively flat, and the neckline is not too high but not too low and can also be adjusted a bit depending on how the front is tied. The colors are vibrant, and the silk is high quality. One thing that may not be universally appealing is that the cuffs are elastic and may be a little tight. They bunch slightly when I wear the shirt under a sweater. Generally, though, it's a great blouse.

    This shirt is beautiful. The colors are vivid and the material is light and falls nicely. The shirt is slightly more fitted than the average peasant blouse, though it's still a little billowy in the waist for hourglass shapes. I generally wear a medium, and a medium fits nicely in this shirt. This shirt will be in heavy rotation from now until summer!

    Beautiful peasant top
    I usually stay away from peasant tops because of my hourglass shape but this top it fitted in the middle and bottom . Very pretty print. I am usually a small or a medium and I took a medium because it is fitted on the bottom.

    Beautiful unique top!
    I read the reviews here and was hesitant about ordering in my normal size. Some people commented that this was snug on the arms or ran small....I found this to be far from the truth for me personally. I am 5'2 approx 127 and I ordered a size 4P and it fit perfectly with PLENTY of room to spare all over.

    Sort of innocent.
    When this tunic came I was nearly in shock. When ordering. I thought well looks sort of nice. But it was absolutely outstanding, gorgeous and out of this world!! Fit was great, it's now one of my favorite pieces.,

    Great top
    Beautiful tunic -a statement piece. The only reason I didn't give it a five star rating is because some of the charms are sewn on poorly. In fact, several had fallen off in shipping. The thin packaging used to ship the top didn't help; I was surprised it wasn't shipped in a box. I will sew on those that fell off. The small fits great.

    beautiful lace and eyelet peasant top
    I bought this beautiful lace top in my usual size large. I agree with the previous reviewer about the A-line pregnant shape, but I loved it so much I turned it inside out and took it in on the sides. It was very easy if you can use a sewing machine. I just followed the design of the lace and started at the armpit on the stitching and angled it down to the hem about 1 1/2 " or so wide. It looks great and was an easy solution. I also would like to say I love the 3/4 length sleeves and I wore this with the HeiHei fur collar bronze military vest, a black cami, and skinny jeans tucked into black lizard cowboy boots.

    It runs large
    I just saw it online and today I tried it in the store. The fabric and quality is not too bad, beautiful details. But it really runs large. Usually l just wear small. But for this one, I need to size down. I will find a tailor to modify it later.

    Beautiful timeless and flattering
    This top is gorgeous!, great for all seasons (layer in winter and airy for summer). a bit more sheer than expected but nothing a black bra/cami cannot fix. Perfect with everything! Highly recommend, I love everything by this designer, Fleur Wood, wish Anthro would cary more of her pieces.
