This is a beautiful silk peasant top. It has long bell sleeves and is tunic length. I think it runs small through the chest.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby reneew Beautifully Well-Made Blouse
By accident, I stumbled on this blouse in an Antro store while looking for something that would be cool, light, but just dressy enough to wear out to dinner on a night that felt more like spring than winter. I saw this top tucked into a skirt, and I was drawn to the colors and the shape, but when I tried it on and realized that it was a tunic, I was very happy. So, it can be worn both ways, and that is a plus.
FYI: I am 5'3", 36D, and I have a short waist and broad back/shoulders. I bought the top in M, and that is what I would normally take in a top that was meant to be worn a bit looser like this one. In a fitted top, I am a 10, and sometimes a L.
However, it isn't big, flowy and baggy. And, for my shorter body, it isn't overwhelming. In fact, many tunic-length tops are simply too long for me, cutting me off and making me look shorter. This one fell to my high hip, so it was perfect. The sleeve length, on me, was also perfect. They came to my wrist, so if you have longer arms they might be a little short. The bell on the sleeve is a lovely detail, too. The M fit my chest, too, without pulling or gapping while not being too full and making me look pregnant.
What drew me in right away, though, were the colors. There is pink, mint/turq green, black, blue, etc. I wore this last night with skinny jeans as a tunic (much like the model in the photo), but I will wear it with shorts and skirts in the summer, too. The fabric isn't sheer, so I didn't have to wear a cami. And, it is a lovely, soft silk. While not cheap, I can expect to get a lot of use out of this blouse for years to come. A real winner!
