Rated 5 out of 5Â by rubyDC lovely & feminine
I was at the store to pick up another blouse I'd had my eye on, and happened to spot this, so I tried it on. LOVE. It has a feminine feel, but the asymmetrical neckline gives it a little bit of a modern twist. The pattern is very sweet (I am a sucker for bird prints), and I am not at all bothered by the sash thing at the hemline -- I feel like it adds a little extra interest. I've worn this top with skinny jeans and booties to dress it down, but could also see it with slouchy trousers or a pencil skirt.
I should add that it is does seem a teensy bit roomy, though I wouldn't say it runs big. I am 34 bust, 25 waist and am kind of on the cusp between 0 & 2 at Anthro in tops -- 0 in this fits me perfectly and the 2 was too much fabric.

Stats: Size12, L/XL, thick torso, 38c. I fell in love with this top as soon as I tried it on. Has a wonderful feminine 1940's feel. I bought a size 10 but I'm usually a size 12 however I wouldn't necessarily recommend sizing down as the gathering around the arm is definitely snug. The neckline is styled to pull to one side but surprisingly doesn't look odd. I love the way it sits on my hips and I think this will look great with a hip-length brown cardigan. The tie that hangs down, as you can see from my photo, isn't as wide. I suggest styling with skinny jeans and knee-high boots to avoid looking frumpy. Fabulous for hiding my flabby upper arms.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by vintageflea I'm quite happy with this cute little blouse. The pattern and colors are so pretty. I am petite and wear size 0 and the 0 fits well; falling to the top my hips. The odd sash can be pulled up through the opening underneath were the elasticized part is-hard to explain, but once you see it you'll know-and then you can make a little bow or rosette. At least that's what I've been doing with it. The blouse is silk but it's not too thin or see-through. It could be worn year -round.
