Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous velvet top This top is beautiful. I purchased the dark metal color and I love the color, the drape and the feel of the silky velvet. It feels very luxe yet can be worn with skinny jeans and colorful flats for a fun everyday look. Also thinking of wearing this for our family holiday portrait. Fit is true to size. I'm 5'2", 134 lbs, 34B and purchased my usual size small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OBSESSED You know when you just love something so much that you want to put it in a shadow box and keep it forever? That's how I feel about this shirt. I am literally obsessed. It is so fun, I keep finding an excuse to wear it EVERWHERE! Easy to dress up, but has the ability to dress down (what more could a girl want?). I love the fit and the fabric. I did go up a size because I wanted it to hang looser around my hips, and not be so tight on across my bust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from will wear a lot - love it! I ordered the black and grey to see which I like best on, and that was a mistake because I like them both! I've decided to keep the grey (dark metal), because it's a complex and interesting color that sort of changes depending on which angle you view it from. It's a slightly lighter shade than it appears in these pics. The black was beautiful too. The style is loose by design and comfortable. The tie is thin grosgrain and has a slim profile. t often wear a small or medium in Madewell, but because in the silk premiere bow-back tie in ascot tile I needed the medium, I thought this would fit the same. I think it does. In the silk version, although the small fit everywhere else, it was tight in the shoulders in the back of my arms. (It had a sort of strange fit, but I'm keeping it too.) The weight of this velvet provides a good drape and heft, so the larger size stays a bit closer to the body. Bottom line - I LOVE this top and can't wait to wear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GORGEOUS I about cried when I received this in the mail. It's so pretty in person!! I've been looking at a few velvet pieces at other stores but this is by far the best one I've seen. The quality is great and the cut is fabulous. "Gun Metal" gets lighter or darker depending on the angle you look at it. This will definitely be my favorite piece of the season!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An interesting top Wasn't expecting too much from this top, but was pleasantly surprised when this arrived! the gun metal color is amazing and gives off a gray purple color that is super interesting. I'm typically a small and ordered that size in this top and it fits perfectly. The top is a good length too so you don't have to worry about it being too short. My new go to concert top (:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shirt EVER!!!!! I can not stress enough how AMAZING this top it. I must admit, I tend to spend a lot of money on clothes. Very high end couture clothing if you will. I purchased this in the black and grey and actually was hesitant on the grey because I religiously wear black. The grey is AMAZING!!!!! I would of paid 5x the amount. Truly. The black is pretty too and keeping it however, no comparison to the grey. I wear an xs in all tops but wanted it to be a bit oversized so I got the S. Fits perfectly. Wear it with boyfriend jeans and heels or leather pants w/ ballet flats. Tempted to even purchase another one JUST in case my daughters steal it :) You won't be disappointed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering, perfect bag I ordered this online in black, all the positive reviews were right- it's so pretty and versatile. It's expensive, but I will wear this for everything. I am 5'2" 105 lb with boobs- I ordered the xs to avoid pulling at chest. I could have gotten away with an xxs and if I get it in another color (it's that good) I will size down. The boxy, baggy shape will look good on anyone; the fabric weight is drapey without being clingy. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous piece! This top is truly gorgeous! When I received it and tried it on, I didn't even want to take it off. Quality material and color looks great! Glad I chose the metallic gray. I would love to buy the black one too but my size is out of stock. I'm 5'1" and 110 lbs, got the XXS and it fits great on me. I like it loose so I don't think it's fit big. I truly recommend this top! It's worth every penny of the price!
