Â by hephep beautiful top, perfect for spring/summer
i was so excited to see this top on sale because i had absolutely fallen in love with it when i saw it in the store. it fits very well, but if you have larger hips you may want to go a size up so it doesn't bunch at the hips (it's a straight cut top with no stretch)
the back isn't lined which is one of the reasons i can't give this top 5 stars, but i wear it with a stick on bra so that you can't see a bra thru the back. also because of the pattern of the coral colored lace the first top i tried on ended up with a lace circle around each of my boobs. not cute.
overall love this top and so excited to wear it =)

I love the orange stripe on this top; it makes it unique and colorful. The orange is a subtle tone and goes well with the ivory lace. This top runs tts. I thought it looked a little longer on me than in the photo, which is good. However, I think it's overpriced. As mentioned in another review, only the front in lined. It's winter folks, so even just in the dressing room I was cold! It would work better with a jacket or cardigan over it. Pretty top, but I will wait for sale.

Porcelain has done a great job creating a lacey-sportsy number that adds up to classy elegance. I love the color-pop of fire-engine orange appliquÃ©d onto antique lace. The Meduim size worked well for me, since the blouse is pull-on style (for reference, I am 5'8", 140 lbs, 34-B) The lace outer shell is 55% cotton, 45% nylon, with an inner lining of 100% nylon.
Which brings up its glaring weakness that other reviewers have noted: why, oh why, is just the front lined? Of course we can wear cami's, slips, cups and shrugs, but at this price, and with such a beautifully made piece, why should we have to? The jury is still out, as to whether I will buy this blouse. It has to work in the class-room and at faculty meetings, without me feeling the need to glue my back to the wall.
