Rated 5 out of 5┬áby reneew Lovely and Classic
The title "peasant blouse" often translates to frumpy, oversized, and not particularly flattering on those with a bust. This top is NOT those things, though, so the tittle really doesn't describe this lovely garment. The length is not long enough to be called a "tunic" either. In fact, it is just a lovely, classic silk shirt that can be worn with everything from jeans to skirts. Tuck it in or leave it out (as pictured) for a casual look, this top is versatile enough to wear four seasons. The fabric is of top quality. I tried on the green version, and even with the amount of light fabric my bra did not show through.
For reference, I am a 34D and usually wear a M in a blouse. This fit TTS because it doesn't have that "oversize" peasant cut. It doesn't make me look pregnant, in other words.
I also have broad shoulders, and the cut of this top is quite slimming in the shoulder area. For a silk blouse, the price for the quality is appropriate when you consider that you will be able to put this in your closet and wear it with almost anything. Think CPW.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby shoppingshanny Not silk
Was ready to buy this top at full price until I read the tag. It is not silk. It is polyester. For $128 I do not want polyester. I love the top and I will buy it if it ever goes on sale. Fits pretty TTS. . I am usually right in between an XS and S and the XS was a little narrow in the shoulders and short in the sleeve length. I have pretty narrow shoulders too. 5'8" 125 lbs 32D-26-36

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Kitka Lovely Top
I bought this top in the green variation. The XS fits true to Anthro's typical XS. Fits well thru the shoulder and flows gently over the midsection. The detailing in this blouse is lovely. Top is sheer, I wear a nude colored cami beneath. The colors in this top are beautiful on the skin and blend well with a variety of other colors and styles. This is a great versatile blouse. However, it is polyester, which is a disappointment at this price point, and the quality is subpar. No extra button included and several loose strings in the lace detailing. At some point, I am sure I will have to resew a button, as long as I don't lose it first. I don't think this top will make it to the sale, as it is just that pretty, but it is not a piece that will last forever and will require gentle handling. Enjoy it while you can!
