Rated 3 out of 5Â by Scylla Too tight in the shoulders
The color, print and design idea are great of this shirt but the execution and cut horrendous. I'm always a size 2/Small (sometimes XS) but this shirt was so ridiculously tight in the shoulders that I couldn't even button it up. Perhaps if I size up to a 4 it might work...
And yes, it is somewhat see through but I didn't mind it being so. I don't think the fabric is tissue thin though; it is a very beautiful and delicate cotton/silk blend perfect for summer days.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BlueEyedBlonde Cute, Unique Button-down
I love this button-down! It's my style.
Just to help others with sizing... I'm a size 34A/ 120 lbs/ 5'4". I ordered a size 2, but returned it for a size 4 because it was too tight in across my back shoulders. I am typically a size 2/4 or XS/ Small. So, I thought that this shirt runs a little small.
p.s. You'll have to wear a cami underneath it!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Xiaosi Still Debating...
When I first saw this shirt in the ANTHRO perk alert, I just had to order it. It reminded me of Marc Jacobs' design back in early 2000, young, fun-loving and non-pretentious. But today when I opened the package, I was a bit disappointed. The material is thin and see-through. The worst part is the ruffle is not hemmed! Seriously, for a shirt at this price, it is hardly acceptable.
I am a fanatic about washing clothing that touches my skin. But this shirt definitely REQUIRES dry-cleaning. It's 30% silk. Plus, the un-hemmed ruffle may very likely start to fray after the first wash.
The only reason that I am still debating about the shirt is that when I try the entire outfit, meaning with the navvy skirt, the look is not bad, about 4 stars.
Sizing wise, the shirt fits to true size. I usually wear size 4 or 6. The size 4 fits me like a glove.
