Rated 4 out of 5Â by TaylorKitCat Great shirt, runs small in the arms
I tried this on in the Black Motif (the flower pattern). The colors are very vibrant, and this shirt has a heavier weight to it than many other rayon shirts, so I don't think it will be AS high maintenance where wrinkles are concerned (like most rayon shirts can be).
Overall, I felt this shirt was TTS, except in the arms. I would have had to gone up to a L (instead of my normal M) in order to have had "normal" arm and shoulder range of motion. If you have very slender, small arms I wouldn't worry though. But if your arms are really muscular or larger and you have wide shoulders, I would size up one size. Just be aware doing so will give the shirt even more of a billow effect.
All in all a cute shirt to pair with some skinnies. I personally found the ruffles to be too overbearing in the solid colors, but the flowers on the Black Motif can stand up to them, and balance the shirt nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Snger123 Cheerful winter blouse
I just picked this blouse up today during the 20% sale. I had every intention of buying the navy-print, which is more business-like for work. But I grabbed the floral print and realized that what I really need in dark grey winter is not more grey, but flowers and color!
Started with Small, but bought the Medium, for all the reasons the other reviewers mentioned, for ref: 5:8, 130 lbs, 34-B. I like the fact that it can serve double-duty: buttoned-up blouse or open, flowy jacket. And I just now discovered the little button-tabs to hold the sleeves up when they are folded. Heavy quality of material, but smooth to the touch. Lovely.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ArtfulOwl Cute shirt but odd ruffle detail
I really wanted to like this shirt, but I found the ruffle in the front to be sort of odd. It is attached at the neckline and just hangs down awkwardly (and sort of acts as a flap). I tried this on in the black floral motif in a size regular XS, which fit well. For reference, I am 5'1'' and 118 lbs and usually a 4P/SP. I'd say it runs TTS/perhaps a little big. I also think it runs a little on the short side, as it hit me at my mid-hip, and I am short. The fabric was alright (definitely soft), though I prefer silk blouses. All in all, I think this blouse was just okay, and I decided not to purchase.
