Rated 4 out of 5┬áby pjaalt wanted this to work so bad
I was drawn to this shirt immediately in the store. The embroidery is even more vibrant in person and is top-notch, and the more muted stripes keep it looking modern rather than dated. However, this shirt is not for anyone with a small frame. It runs extremely large. I am 5'2", 105 pounds, and the XS was way too large. The shoulders were too wide to the point that I could have worn it as an off-the-shoulder top. The embroidery in front makes the shirt a little stiff, so it stood straight out instead of laying against my body. It's also very long. It is cut a little longer in the back, and it completely covered my butt. I was so sad that this didn't work because it is so beautiful. :(

I love what the designer did with this shirt. The stripes are a muted red color (more like maroon) and she paired it with the bright cheerful Mexican print. If it had been a brighter stripe, the shirt would not have worked. I also love the detail on the back neckline of the shirt. The shirt does run a little large. I am still sticking with my usual medium. I tucked this in to Anthropologie's new Colima Maxi Skirt (the green one) and love the bohemian look. I love embroidery and I think this Mexican embroidery is beautiful. I will get a lot of wear out of this piece.

I bought this in my usual medium and it fits perfectly. I agree with the other reviewer that the muted stripes work really well with the bright palette of the embroidery. I'd call the stripes a rust red. Lots of small details make this shirt a winner.
