Rated 4 out of 5 by Pictures do not do this justice Okay, so my store currently has two of these (both returns). I became enamored with them. The juxtaposition of the tapestry-esque material on top with the ruffled bottom? In very feminine colors? Loved it. We first only had a size 8, but then eventually the four came in. I thought it was going to be large as I am definitely a two on top (a four on bottom, unless it's a skirt), however, it was a perfect fit. The peplum is definitely REALLY poofy. The ruffles on the bottom are made out of a rather stiff material (which surprised me to be honest...) and that means the peplum shape is pretty harsh. I sort of felt a bit like a cupcake, but for whatever reason I still sort of loved that. The colors are NOT at ALL what's pictured. Definitely more neon or fluorescent tones... and even the ruffles (that are definitely stiff - which adds to the poof problem) are not that color pictured... more of a nude Not 100% sold on it yet, I'm going to try it on one more time before purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous and Vibrant This top really is gorgeous and much more vibrant in person than in the images. It is beautifully tailored and actually quite luxe in weight. My only point to a perspective owner would be to err on the larger side. I am typically an XS or a 0-2. I ordered a 2 in this piece and I found it a big snug across the chest (and I am NOT a busty girl). I wore this with boyfriend jeans and cute summer sneakers and got a million compliments. Would also be cute with denim shorts or a cigarette pant and heels for cocktails. Do it! You won't regret it. This would be a special and versatile add to any wardrobe. April 4, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by So sad that I had to return it This blouse is SO gorgeous in person. The colors are lovely with some pop of neon. The fabric was just so rich and lush. Unfortunately, the peplum sat too high above the waist, right below the rib cage, and the peplum poofed out too much, so it gave me the appearance of a big baby. I was so sad I had to return since it was over all just such a gorgeous piece. It's unfortunate that the fit was just too Baby Jane-ish. And it runs a little small. Am usually a 0 -2 and I got the 2 and it was a tad snug. April 28, 2013

RED MOTIF Style #:27529940 Founded in 2001, the Manish Arora line takes inspiration from the 60s, when joie de vivre reigned supreme, and new silhouettes - from blouson to tent to fit-and-flare - felt futuristic. With hand-embroidered neon details and organza pleats, this embellished peplum top has major flare. Daksha Stitched Blouse
