The beadwork at the top is absolutely stunning! I had a little trouble clasping the beads at the top, but that's just because it's hidden really well. I love the colors of the beads and the way they accent the grey top. I tried on the XS and I loved the fit. I wear a 34B and it did fit just right in the chest area. It's very flattering since it flows around the stomach. I also like the gathered detail at the top of the sleeves. It's not very noticeable, just enough to add an extra feminine touch. I also love the soft material that this top is made with. It's extremely comfortable.

i found this in a SP in my local anthro's sale room and thinking that it was a return ftom the winter season, thought i had scored an amazing find.
then trying to find an image of it to post to pinterest, i stumbled onto it on the anthro site and was surprised to see that it was still available in all petite sizes... i had overlooked it every time i had trolled the sale pages (and that's like every day).
the fit is flattering -- it's loose and drapey without being oversizes and sloppy. the material is so soft (a cotton, modal, triexta(?) and silk blend) -- nothing itchy there. but the pictures on the website do not do this top justice (otherwise i would not have overlooked so many times). the detail of the beaded collar is absolutely stunning. it's so much more eyecatching and head-turning in person.
as far as quality and durability, most of my moth sweaters have held up over time, so i'm hoping this will do the same. i washed this sweater in anticipation of wearing it tomorrow. care instructions say hand wash, but i put it in 2 mesh lingerie bags, and then put it in the machine on the delicate cycle (and my machine is not really that gentle with the delicates) and the top stood up. the beads seem to be securely fastened to the top.
my only issue is the neck closure. it's a large hook/eye closure and it doesn't seem to want to stay clasped. i hope tomorrow that i'm not constantly having to clasp it shut over and over again.
