Rated 4 out of 5 by pymblewiz Cute but not quite as nice on
I bought this top last time it was available and just had to have it. It was so unique, had good reviews, and I am addicted to knits. The comments that follow are mostly due to the top not really suiting me. I think the ivory colour is too close to my skin tone and washes me out. I'm pale and if wearing ivory it has to be almost devoid of colour so as to bring out my own colour. Secondly, once it arrived, I went through every combination of this top with pants or skirt and found it not versatile. Again, this may be a deficit in my wardrobe but it does add bulk and therefore a looser pant or skirt will not work well. Slim pants or straight jeans looked best. I'm tall and a little on the gaunt side around the arms and chest so I think this top really highlighted my pale skin and thin frame in a non-flattering way. The navy was not available then but I see it is now and I would have purchased this over the ivory and no doubt been more satisfied. The fit is TTS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovetoshop24hoursday Pretty in the blue color
Love this sweater in blue (cream didn't do much for my fair skin) and will put it on my list of things to consider. I loved the color and the tassels, but the fit was just ok and it is still 100 degrees here most days, so it would be fall before I could wear it as it is not a really soft sweater so the heat and fabric would be too much for now even with the cap sleeves. As for fit, I am usually a medium size (6 or 8) in fitted tops such as this one. I would say the fit is TTS as the medium fit fine even though it was not particularly flattering; not unflattering, just not great. If it is still available when it is a bit cooler, I will probably try a large to see if it is more flattering than the medium. The blue color is the attraction, although I don't think it is a vibrant as it looks online - I would say it is a bit more of a slate blue than navy. Still pretty, but I do like the online color better as I love vibrant colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by twister71 so far so good
Got this yesterday. Love the color!! I got the blue, and considering getting the cream, but want to see how it washes.
I'm in Texas and slightly concerned that I won't be able to wear it here, but it seems light weight so I'll give it a go.
I'm 5' 4" 138 lb and weigh 137 and I got the medium.
