Rated 5 out of 5 by hautehippiemom I have had this in my shopping cart since it came online, and today my store got it in, so I tried it on and it is just gorgeous. It is a thin but substantial cotton voile, with a large piece of edged, netted, embroidered lace all around the bottom and inset at the sleeves. There is embroidery around the neck, and 5 mother of pearl buttons at the back of the neck and the center button is square while the others are round! The embroidery is covered with crystal bugle beads and sequins in an aurora borealis finish.
As for sizing, I took my usual size 12. This is an A-line top, so it should fit well for people with hips, and it fits well through the bust. It is a looser fitting but not pregnant looking top, and you could size down if you want a closer fit.
I would not machine wash or dry this even though they say you can, the beading is too delicate and the beads will eventually come loose if they are washed roughly. I hand wash most of my anthro clothing in woolite and hang dry to extend the life of the garment.

This top caught my eye while shopping in my local store. It's a beautiful, versatile piece. It does not seem too delicate, I think it would hold up well over time.
You can't see the white beads well in the photo. They give the bottom of the shirt a gorgeous shimmery effect.
I am usually an 8 or 10 , 36C and I found the 8 was perfect. I'd say it runs slightly large.
I also love that this is machine wasable and dryer friendly. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dao318 Sooooo lovely!!
I absolutely love this top! It's so feminine! It's a lovely voile, rather sheer so a little cami in needed underneath but it's such a pretty top its totally worth it. Cute puckering at the shoulders. The beading makes it even more special. Nice fit, not too boxy, fits TTS.
