It's got pros and cons I just snagged this top today at my local store, mainly to help up my total to the minimum required to spend my virtual dollars. What I like about the top are the color palette and print--it looks like nothing else in my closet and is adorable with dark jeans and a velvet blazer. The fit was less boxy than I would have guessed from the photo, so while I don't plan to wear it alone, it would look fine that way. Fit is true, too, by the way. What bugs me about it, though, is that there's a seam going straight across the collarbone, and all the fabric above it is sheer, while the fabric below is lined with a black stretchy shell. In the photo, you can't really tell this, and it makes the whole bra situation tricky. I hate strapless bras, but bra straps definitely show through that sheer fabric. I tried wearing a black cami under it to camouflage bra straps, but it just looks odd. Since I plan to wear this under jackets, it wasn't a deal-breaker, but I always find it annoying when TL does tops that make it impossible to wear normal bras with. January 13, 2013
Cute holiday top I personally did not like the loose boxy fit of this top. I opted to purchase it two sizes too small and have it fit like a normal shirt. My size looked super unflattering and swallowed me up. It is cute for holiday gatherings and other seasonal events. Probably will not get much wear out of this top. Not my favorite. December 8, 2012
Nice top The colors are very nice, fit is a little boxy, but not bad if you like that kind of fit. Looks really nice with black pants or with jeans. November 30, 2012
Wonderful top! I really love this top. The pattern is fun, and I was surprised as to the quality. I like that the top has some thickness to it, so it is not too sheer, with the exception of the intentionally sheer yoke. Also, the length on this is perfect. I purchased an xs, and I like that it comes down some. I think it's more flattering that way and also gives some material to blouse the top a little if you wish to tuck it into pants or a skirt.
