Rated 4 out of 5Â by brooklet Lovely western-feel printed blouse
I purchased this blouse in store on Anthro day. I had spied it in the store once before, and this time tried it on and bought it.
I found the fit on the slim side, but I will say true to size since I bought my usual size 2. I am 5'2, 115 lbs and 32C top with a small frame.
The fabric has a very soft and appealing feel, and the patterns are sweet and delicate, much prettier in person than online.
The blouse has a bit of a western feel to it, but not overly so. Will be cute with jeans and boots, or tucked into a skirt. I tried on the blue with the blushed tweed jacket and they were super cute paired together.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SFCali Comfortable Casual with Structure
I'm always looking for clothes that have more texture and structure than a tee shirt while being just as comfy. I want to be casual while still looking well put-together. Holding Horses' button-ups always fit that bill.
I saw both colors in the store and liked the "red" the best, which is a very nice blend of tiny coral and purple flowers, somehow both bright and a bit subdued. It is a very soft textured cotton, but it is also very fine, so dark colored undergarments will be semi-visible, but a skin-colored bra didn't show through.
I disagree that that arms are too tight. I do not have skinny arms by a longshot and I had no problems in the arms in both the size 8 and size 10. On the other hand, my shoulders are little narrower than average. This runs true to size or bit small. I usually wear size 8 and the 8 fit fine, everywhere except my bust (34D), where it gapped slightly if I turned a certain way. So I'm just going to add in a snap at that point, since I'm able to move and raise my arms and all that I it. If you want a little more give, I'd size up one size.
I got the regular and not the petite, although I'm barely 5'4" with a short waist, because I wanted enough shirt tail to tuck in. It hit just below my hip bone in front and is slightly longer in back, partially covering my seat.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by imaquirkygirl Tight sleeves!
I saw this in an Anthro store and it was cute. I tried it on in my usual size 10 and couldn't even get the arms on. The sleeves are really tight. I sized up and still couldn't get the arms on. The midsection of this shirt runs a little small (my 10 ran kind of like an 8), but the arms were more like a size 2!
