Silk Retrospect Top in Brushstroke Plaid

Silk Retrospect Top in Brushstroke Plaid is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT STYLE I first ordered in Small as that was the smallest size available and I was so disappointed as it did not look right, I'm 5"4" and 104 lbs. I called Customer Service and they found me an Extra-Small. It looks FABULOUS! This is a perfect top because it makes you look wonderful -- but not like you tried too hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fit A great blouse to wear with jeans, dress pants or a skirt. The fit is perfect, silk makes for a luxurious feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Top This top is so lovely and feels so nice! It's the perfect length to leave untucked or to do a half-tuck and looks great with my jeans. I am usually a L/12-14, and the large fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As I said.... I bought the same shirt in solid red as well. I can only reiterate the same comment in my review of it. Quality, style and price all fit perfectly and I absolutely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this top! took a chance as it is on sale and not returnable. bought the medium---am usually a 4-6 in tops. fit is, as described, boxy, but not oversized. looks great. very wearable for work with a skirt or pants and would be good with jeans and boots as well for a more casual but sophisticated look. love the longer back and the exposed zipper

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great silk top The blouse is a lovely silk with a fun brushstroke plaid that's not quite black but not navy either. It can definitely be work appropriate, either with a pencil skirt or pants and blazer, but easily worn more casually, too. The only downside, and this is personal preference, is that it's a tad too short. I would've liked it to be about 2 inches longer, but it's not a dealbreaker. If you like to half tuck, this top will work nicely for that purpose. I'm busty and curvy and typically wear L/XL in tops, but this top fit really well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from From the office to out... Beautiful shirt and so flattering! I've got a larger bust that I never want to showcase, and I ordered a medium. The shirt is very flattering and doesn't tug or pull like some. The coloring is wonderful--can pair with black OR navy. I've received lots of compliments around the office.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SIze's way off!! It's such a cute top! I was so excited! And it was a good deal! It arrived..I usually wear an XS or S at "Madewell" it is HUGE! I'm guessing an 8 or 10! SO bummed because it's sold out now.. I would think your customer knows their size, and isn't buying "Chicos" or "Lafayette" and needs to feel like they are a size smaller than they are. In the picture of the top..I'm guessing she has on an XS and it's pinned in the back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Got my normal size. Runs very large in the arms on me, which it doesn't seem to on the model. Otherwise pretty cute.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from no This top is nice online but once I saw it in person I wasn't impressed. The description says hand painted and it looks like it but not in a good way. To me the strips are okay but they are spots on the shirt that look like stains which is part of the hand painting and not appealing to me. Finale Sale otherwiseI would send it back.
