Lace-Inset Peasant Tee

Lace-Inset Peasant Tee is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from we all need a good white peasant top I feel like I can wear this with anything. Its really unfussy, but the sleeve detail adds just enough femininity to make me want to wear it everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fabric and cute design. I love this shirt. I got it in white. It runs a bit large so I would size down one size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Simple Piece I was a little worried ordering this shirt, as I don't usually do the "girly" look. I was happy that this shirt was overtly girly or peasant-ly. It's comfortable and good looking. I love the cut outs on the sleeve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peasant Blouse I bought this blouse in white. It's very soft and comfortable. It's a little bit boxy in the body but I think it will work especially with skinny jeans. Can be worn year round.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too boxy for petites I really liked this top on the model but I mistaken bought a medium because i was in between small and medium. although the quality is great and thick for the winter, its not as flattering as the picture

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish this had worked The design of this shirt, with its contrasting inset embroidery, is truly imaginative, something I always look for in tops since my daily outfit basically devolves to jeans and a T-shirt. I waited until this piece was on sale with an added 30% off since the initial price struck me as quite high for what the piece is. The fit is odd, which I believe is due to the fabric choice. I have several other tops with a similar design, however they feature a much lighter material with a lot of drape and movement. This garment felt stiff by comparison, and looked bunchy. The split in the neck should have been longer, to create a more open neckline. For the record, I'm small, 5'4", 108 lbs, yet this piece looked squat and dumpy. Another reviewer uses the term "boxy", also apt. Reading the label, I saw the dread words, "Dry clean only", decidedly not what you want to see on what's basically a cotton T-shirt. Back it went.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too short for me I really liked the idea of this tee, but like the other reviewer said, it is very cropped. I know it's a trendy style right now and it would probably work for someone younger than I. I sent it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boxy fit I saw this shirt online and immediately fell in love with it. But when it came, it turned out to be a lot more boxy than it looks. It also is almost cropped, which I'm not sure it's supposed to be; I'm very short waisted and it barely hits at my hips. I like the shirt, but I would wait till it's on sale to buy it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2 Different Shirts Cute shirt online and in person, but they don't look the same. The shirt here is basically 3/4 length and not cropped. The one I got in the mail was insanely cropped and long sleeved. Still cute but not what I wanted for the price, ended up taking it back and exchanging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from frustrating So I bought this on final sale, which is really a bummer for me... I tried it on and was annoyed with how ugly it is... the embroidery hits me right above my elbows and is way bulkier and stiff looking than on the model. I came back to the website to look again at it... and couldn't figure out what was so different. Then I zoomed in and looked close... it's not the same cut AT ALL.... first off, it's LONG sleeved, the model CLEARLY has on a shirt that's 3/4 length. Secondly, the seams at the arms are TOTALLY different. The shirt I received has a dropped shoulder seam, and the shirt that is being modeled has a seam like a baseball tee... I feel like I'm in a bad Renaissance inspired tee. Don't waste your money, even for the sale price.
