Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful blouse but some details to be aware of I ordered this blouse online whiteout having seen it in the store. It is a beautiful blouse and I will probably keep it but like the other reviewer, it is a little different that the blouse I had expected. The inside of the collar and cuffs is lined in a blue and white stripe fabric giving it a different look than what I expected. Looking closer, you can see this in some of the online views. This fabric also appears in an inset at the side hem, between the front and the back. The sleeves are 3/4, which I would have preferred anyway. There is a slit of a pocket on the left front of the shirt, visible in one view but not another, and my shirt has no collar buttons which are shown in the online shirt. (Buttons and buttonholes that make is a button-down collar.) The back is longer than the front. The fabric is lightweight, and I will wear a camisole under it because of where I will wear it. The colors in the fabric are very pretty and vibrant as you can see online. Very pretty blouse. March 9, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Unfortunate return I was excited to see this shirt on special and ordered it immediately! Initially it fit well but on the fitted side. After washing it it shrunk significantly, on one side. Very strange. I will be returning it. September 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice! But details I didn't expect I just received this shirt and really like it but there are some details that were unexpected. I would say it runs true to size but narrow at the hips and the fabric has no give or stretch. I typically wear an 8 or 10 and went with the 10 in this shirt. It closely skims the body without actually clinging, but if it was any closer/tighter I probably would have had to size up further. As seems to be the trend, the back is longer than the front and the shirt overall is longer than I expected. The back of the shirt hangs down past my rear and the front ends at the bottom of my hips. The description doesn't say, and I guess I didn't pay close attention to the photos, but the sleeves are 3/4 in length, not full length. I also didn't realize that there is a contrasting fabric consisting of light blue and white stripes along the inside collar, sleeve cuffs and, which definitely doesn't show in the photos, each side of the shirt. The blue stripes on the sides show if you don't tuck the shirt in, and the stripes along the inside collar show unless you button the shirt all the way. If you look at the photo of the back of the shirt you'll see the striped cuffs. I don't mind the stripes, but it does give the shirt a different look than I was anticipating. The colors are true to what you see online, wonderfully vibrant, and I would argue that the orange color winds up being the most prominent. The fabric is pretty sheer but I think it can be worn without a cami, although at night (or at the right angle during the day with sunlight streaming through) a camera flash or bright lighting might reveal more than you want. The construction seems to be good and the seams appear to be well sown. Overall I'm very happy with this shirt, it just had some details that weren't apparent from the photos or description.
