Rated 4 out of 5 by anthropologist lace top
I love the orange stripe on this top; it makes it unique and colorful. The orange is a subtle tone and goes well with the ivory lace. This top runs tts. I thought it looked a little longer on me than in the photo, which is good. However, I think it's overpriced. As mentioned in another review, only the front in lined. It's winter folks, so even just in the dressing room I was cold! It would work better with a jacket or cardigan over it. Pretty top, but I will wait for sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snger123 See-thru Back, alas
Porcelain has done a great job creating a lacey-sportsy number that adds up to classy elegance. I love the color-pop of fire-engine orange appliquéd onto antique lace. The Meduim size worked well for me, since the blouse is pull-on style (for reference, I am 5'8", 140 lbs, 34-B) The lace outer shell is 55% cotton, 45% nylon, with an inner lining of 100% nylon.
Which brings up its glaring weakness that other reviewers have noted: why, oh why, is just the front lined? Of course we can wear cami's, slips, cups and shrugs, but at this price, and with such a beautifully made piece, why should we have to? The jury is still out, as to whether I will buy this blouse. It has to work in the class-room and at faculty meetings, without me feeling the need to glue my back to the wall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StGermain Great color, needs lining!
The other reviews have all already said it, and I happen to agree: it really should be lined on both the front and the back. Don't understand why it's only lined on the front. I can't buy clothing that require extra layers. Not for this price anyway. However, it is super pretty in person, and I love the colors. But if you have and sort of hips, this blouse will not work. It is cut straight all the way down, and it will bunch up if you have wider hips.
