Rated 5 out of 5Â by angelface SO feminine!
Anthropologie opened a new store in my city and I went on opening day. I purchased 3 items and this blouse in the blue and in the ivory were 2 out of the 3. I absolutely LOVE it! I will wear this for years, and there aren't many items of clothing I can say that about. The blue looked wonderful tucked into my long brown suede skirt with western boots. It is blousy, so I prefer it tucked or belted, and it looks great either way. My husband liked it loose but I prefer a more defined look. The wide ruffle is so feminine, and the neckline with the gathering on the shoulders has a bit of a vintage look. The v is a bit deep, but on me comes right above cleavage so I wore it without a cami and still felt modest. I thought the lower point of the ruffle looked fine tucked or belted. This blue is a wonderfully pretty color and I will wear it with brown or black skirts or slacks. It fits true to size. I normally wear size 4 and purchased a 4 in this. Even though it is blousy, don't go down a size because it is more fitted under the arms and would be tight in a smaller size. The cuffs are generous and do not pull when moving my arms and I can raise my arms over my head with no binding anywhere. For reference I am 5'2" 135 lbs., a fluffy size 4 and sometimes 6.

This top jumped out at me in store as a piece I could wear as a sexy date top, and also to work! A wardrobe workhorse. Sad that I'm late to the game and missed the other colors; the green is a perfect kelly green. I am 5'2", 115 lbs, 34B and the regular size 0 fit perfectly in this top. I didn't find it too low cut at all, even for work (though exercise caution when bending down- maybe a basic cami underneath would be best). It came just to the middle of my hips, a good length. I really love it!

Stats: Size 12, 38c, thick torso, L/XL. I got this in size 12 and like all the other Maeve tops I own, I am delighted with this one. Such a flattering style with feminine sleeves to cover my flabby upper arms. Works great with any length cardigan. I love how the ruffle sits flat against the blouse - it doesn't create any unnecessary extra volume against my bust area. I did try a size smaller but it was a little tight across my back.
