┬áby tippytoe Feminine with a 40's vibe
Stats: Size12, L/XL, thick torso, 38c. I fell in love with this top as soon as I tried it on. Has a wonderful feminine 1940's feel. I bought a size 10 but I'm usually a size 12 however I wouldn't necessarily recommend sizing down as the gathering around the arm is definitely snug. The neckline is styled to pull to one side but surprisingly doesn't look odd. I love the way it sits on my hips and I think this will look great with a hip-length brown cardigan. The tie that hangs down, as you can see from my photo, isn't as wide. I suggest styling with skinny jeans and knee-high boots to avoid looking frumpy. Fabulous for hiding my flabby upper arms.

The design of this blouse is very flattering on petite folks like me, especially at the neckline (plus the sleeves cover my muscular arms, which is a bonus). The sash adds an interesting flair to the blouse (after all, it is Leifnotes); however, it doesn't matter to me whether it's there or not. It's not so long that it becomes bothersome so I don't mind it. The web lists the material as "viscose." However, the tag on the blouse is listed as "silk," and I confirmed that it is silk material. The bird design is very retro and feminine which takes me back to the 50's fashion. The blouse has a lot of colors yet the birds are small enough that it looks neutral. I can pair it with plain or bright color skinny jeans on the weekend or with suits on the weekday.

I'm so so happy Anthropologie has brought back the blouse! I wasn't able to try this in store because they didn't have my size, so I took a chance and ordered it, because I was in love. I'm so glad i did. I'm 5'6" and a size 12 with a *substantial* chest, but don't look it. This is just so flattering. The collar falls nicely, and the sash was a lovely detail. Only two quibbles: the arms are a *tiny* bit small - not enough to cause a problem - and the blouse as a whole is a *little* short. One me it hits at high hip. But keep in mind I have a long torso. If you're average to short torso, or any shorter than I am, you probably won't notice is. If you're taller than me...you might.
