┬áby StephanieJ Quirky Penguin Print
I love anything with penguins on it so I immediately fell in love with this blouse. It's such a fun, quirky print, but I think the colors somehow make it less crazy and more manageable to wear, even to work. It's comfortable and fits true to size. For reference, I'm 5'3", 125 lbs, 32A bust, 26" waist, typically a size 0/2 or x-small and I'm wearing a size 0 in the photos. It's made of a very lightweight, breathable cotton. I love the idea of rolling up the sleeves and tucking it in, as seen in the product shot, to make it look more polished. Despite the loud, quirky print, it's quite versatile - wear it with jeans on the weekends or dress it up with a cardigan and skirt for the office.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby reneew Quirky, Comfy and Classic at the Same Time
The print of this shirt, the blue with the penguins, attracted me instantly because I am always on the hunt for a quirky print that can add a lot to my otherwise classic style. For reference: I am a 34D, broad through the shoulder, size 8/10 on top (usually medium). The medium fit perfectly. The top fits like a classic, button-down polo shirt, but the print really sparks and adds interest. The fabric is very soft, too. My only concern with this top is that the length for me (5'3") might be long to wear on the outside without cutting me off. You can tuck it in, though, just as the model has in the photo. The price for the quality is pretty good, so overall this is a welcomed addition to my wardrobe.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Alnilam Super cute, but wrinkles easily
I loved the adorable bikes on the green version of this shirt, and couldn't resist picking it up at the 20% off Black Friday sale. Overall, I'm happy with it--the bikes are very cute and it's nicely tailored. However, the fabric is 100% rayon so it wrinkles VERY easily and winds up looking messy throughout the day. For the price point, I would have hoped for better quality material. The rayon is also very soft and flowy which, while it gives the shirt a nice drape, leaves it looking somewhat unstructured--when I showed it to my boyfriend, he thought it was a pajama top! This leaves me somewhat on the fence, but I love the print too much to return it. I'll look into ways of styling it so that the wrinkles aren't as obvious!
Also, I'm generally a size 8 and found it to run quite true to size; the 8 was a perfect fit for me.
