Rated 4 out of 5Â by FreePeoplePerson Nice basic blouse, super soft fabric
Fit: Pretty TTS, it's supposed to be slightly slouchy and oversized and while I probably could have sized down for a slimmer fit, I liked the extra room I had in my normal size. Worn untucked, it does look a bit more a-line than the tucked in photos here. The arms and shoulders are proportional so the slouchy fit doesn't look sloppy.
Colors: The brown is a milk chocolate color, which is really lovely in person and shows the most variation in dye, compared to the other colors. The white is a true, bright white and the light pink is a baby pink that is easy for people to wear, I think. They did not have the darker pink color in my store, so I can't comment on that color.
Fabric: Very, very soft flowy fabric that has enough structure to hang nicely without clinging and also be lightweight.
Other stuff: The lighter colors (white, light pink) aren't too sheer so I don't think you need a base layer, just a t-shirt bra, which is a nice thing for those of us who live in warmer climates or just don't like to fuss with a base layer.
Bottom line: Great construction, nice swing to the fabric without clinging and great, well thought out color range. TTS fit is slouchy on purpose, so size down if you want a sleeker fit.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by AlexaJ Relaxed fit "boyfriend" buttondown
I grabbed this shirt in my usual size small (I'm 5'6, 140 lbs, athletic build) in the light light pink as I was waiting in line to checkout without trying it on. I tried it on when I got home and am on the fence about this shirt. It is extremely soft, much softer than a normal button down and feels like it's worn in, which i like. This also causes it to be prone to wrinkles, so it will have to be ironed before each wear. As for sizing, it appears as though this shirt is supposed to be a relaxed fit, like you took it from your boyfriend's closet, but the small was a tent. I'm planning on going back to the store to try on an extra small and see if the fit is any better. If not, I will return.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Gilreath surprised by how much I love it
Y'all... this shirt is so lovely. It's not something I would have picked out for myself, but I am so glad my sales associate brought it to my room.
On the hanger it looks like a run-of-the-mill, over-priced button down, but when you put it on is does something magical. It's the drape of the garment that makes it special. I'm not usually a drapey kind of girl; I'm petite with a curvey frame (5'4", 116 lbs, 32D), so my proportions tend to get lost in things that are supposed to be "slouchy". Not this, thanks to the fabric.
The placement of the first button is low enough to be interesting and a little sexy, but not so low I'd think twice about wearing it at work. Speaking of which, this is going to be a wardrobe workhorse! It will transition easily from the office to play. I got it in the pink, and I think it's a very flattering color. I may break down and get the white too :)
I'm kind of on the fence about whether I should have gotten an extra small instead of a small. I haven't washed it yet, so I am not sure if it will shrink or how the fabric will stand up over time - hence the 4 stars.
