Casual & elegant

Its a loose fit, but compare to others was elegant . Fabric was silky smooth & luxuries. I wore it with jeans for dinner with friends , the only things ( did not bother me ), but - its not easy to raise your arms up- with how sleeves attached, so just don't go shelves stuffing in this blouse.

So Many Compliments!

Great top if you have a smaller bust! I loved the material and print. I was self conscious my bralette was showing all day because it does run a little big and the tie strings on the ends of the sleeves got in the way more than I'd like.

Lots of compliments.

Fit was true to size but was loose. Arms were true to size. Hard to raise arms while driving. But I love the top and the material was very nice.

Super cute

Love this top! Thick material, good quality. I'm 5'3 and 115 lbs and the XS felt a little big to me. It's supposed to be flowy but it felt just a little too wide in the stomach area. Really cute tho, got a lot of compliments. Definitely recommend.

Unique & comfy!

I wore this on the weekend just running errands, going to church, etc and loved it. Plenty of room with a xs but I liked the flowy look and feel. I liked how it looked better with the front half tucked in to give me a little more shape (without the tuck it felt a bit boxy in the front on my body given the cut of the shirt). Great piece and would rent again!

Beautiful Fabric!

I loved both the feel and the design of the fabric that made up this shirt. The cold shoulder design fell nicely and the buttons were a nice detail to pull the shirt together. I usually wear a 4 so I got a S. It was sized perfectly. I wore a bandeau and it peeked through the buttons. My only issue was the ties on the sleeves, they had metal ends that were annoying. I'd rent again!

Great quality fabric

The shirt is a super cute design. Lots of little details, like bows on the sleeves with little gold tips. The shirt is a little low cut, but I'm not busty so it wasn't an issue for me. Overall, would consider renting again!

Easy breezy shirt

I rented this shirt because I wanted to try out the cold shoulder trend. Shirt was light and breezy, perfect for end of summer. Ran a little large, sleeves were long. Might suggest sizing down.

I️ got many compliments . It's nice and fresh . If you are busted it will look better inside front of jeans other wise might be too square .

Flowy and Fun!

I rented this to wear to a daytime music festival. It was really hot and this kept me cool all day! I wore it with a black cotton/Lycra pencil skirt and it was perfect!

Loved it

Beautiful, high quality fabric, on trend top. I wore a Cami underneath because the buttons do you have a gap, but that doesn't take away from the beauty of the top. I love it so much that I bought it!

Had to layer

Though cute, it was impossible to find a suitable bra to go with this shirt so I resorted to wearing a cami under it. Won't rent again, but was fine.

Great fabric, cute cut

I really liked this top except for the open areas along the buttons and how low cut it was. I just wore a lacy tank underneath and it was fine.

Runs large

Cute for a date night. The XS ran large on me and I'm usually between an xs and small. Very low cut. I would wear with fashion tape or a cami underneath. Prob wouldn't rent again just because I'd like to try something else.

Fun & sexy

Every detail on this top from the cold shoulders to buttons to ties on the sleeves were amazing. Ran a little big and fell low. Would have been more conservative with a cami. Will most likely rent again! Wore to a Friendsgiving with jeans and booties

So large was constantly adjusting, bra hanging out!

Such a bummer because this shirt was so cute, but it was so loose I was constantly pulling it up and my bra 100% just came out at one point as we were getting dinner with friends, really uncomfortable and it was the smallest size!

So obsessed with this shirt. Smooth, comfortable material. Can be worn out of jeans or all tucked into some high waisted ones. I loved this one so much I ended up buying it!!!

STYLIST REVIEW

Loved the stripes on this top! This is a casual top that is great for all seasons. This does run a little big, especially in the chest area. Therefore, I would suggest sizing down if possible.

Cute top! Silky soft material. Runs big

This is a cute retro-looking top! Very comfy silky material. Ran a little big on me. I normally wear a medium, but I wore a small in this top. The sleeves have little ties that have metal ends on them, which really started to drive me crazy after a while; they kept getting in my way. If I owned the top,I would have cut them off! I had to wear a tank top underneath because you can see between the buttons. But, pretty cute top!

Sadly, I could not wear it because it was too large.

This blouse is adorable, but it was WAY to big on me. I will rent it again, but I will order an XS instead of a S. Very cute, and I highly recommend, but size down.

Details, Details, Details

Fun! I ended up renting it for a day at St. Augustine, and it did seem a little piratey in that context but the details were wonderful. Runs very large, even the small was very flowy. I had to pair it with a cami to avoid too much cleavage/skin showing between the buttons. The fabric is divine, but thin, so I'd recommend it for a warmer day

Cute shirt- nice for a casual night out.

Pros: Cute shirt, like the style- no shoulders, good length Cons: Too much space between the buttons. No matter if the size is too big or fits right you will have to wear a cami underneath; sleeves are as annoying as everyone says in the reviews. There is a dangly thing that has something on the end of it that is just annoying. I would possibly rent again.

I ordered a size up from what I normally wear. The fit just wasn't right for me

arms were way to long. The body of the blouse was shorter than I thought it would be.

Loved the fit and style of it, but it did have a lot of issues.

The buttons at the top weren't very taught so you could easily see through the gaps of the buttons to your under garments... so I had to wear a undershirt when I wore it out. Also, the sleeve draw strings didn't stay tied and was constantly re-tying them. Also the color was very similar to my summer tan skin tone which I felt like there was no contrast.

Stylist Review

This top is one of my favs. It's super light and can wear in the summer. I wore it to work, and then to NYC dinner. It fits true to size, however be careful if you're bustier, you may need fashion tape or a safety pin for top button. I didn't have any malfunctions though :) Styled with jeans for more casual look.

Fabulous top

I really liked this top, I wore it one night with heels to dress it up then another time during the day with flats and got multiple compliments. Nice flowing fabric, wore with a strapless bra, would rent again. Only issue is the one I got the ties on one of the arms were fraying and I could see that it had been stained previously. Not so bad that I could not wear it though.

Comfortable top!

Cute top for a night out. I wore the bottom 2 buttons open bc it was just a little snug in the hips. I also wore a black lace halter bra under the top to break up the pink/nude blend in the skin tone. The ties on the sleeves make a great accent to the top also.

Cute, flattering, unique

The color was a warm tan with kind of a rose tint. It was very flattering on my olive skin. The fit runs a bit loose... Which is part of the look. I loved it and ended up buying it. Nice everyday go out top.

Cute top!

Got tons of compliments. Love the top - only issue is that it laid very low cut on me so the tank that I wore underneath was visible. Sometimes that really bothers me, but it worked since this was more casual.
