Fabulous blouse! The burgundy is dark, like the square color sample. Got it for someone as a gift, might get it for myself, too. I bought myself the white. Nice cotton/spandex mix. LOVE the collared v-neck, it's much more feminine and flattering than a traditional button-down tailored top. The gathering around the bust is also flattering and feminine. Easy style to wear dressy or casually. Nice fit under a cardigan, doesn't feel bulky or stiff. I'm a Petite for most of my tops and this one is just a bit long in the sleeves. I'm 5'2 1/2 and can get away both ways, the cuffs buttoned or flipped up. I wish this style of the collared v-neck came in some gingham check patterns, as well as a short sleeve version with slightly puffed (banded or elastic) short sleeve.
sleeves too short
This blouse fit nicely and was true to size. The only problem I had was the fact that the sleeves were too short. I feel that for the price the sleeves could have been a bit longer. I did not return it though I just rolled up the sleeves to make them 3/4
I love this but...
I have wanted this top since I first saw it in the catalog on that perfectly proportioned model with the super sharp denim skirt. I ordered one and realized instantly that simply putting this shirt on will not make me look like the model (darn!). However, it does fit well enough. The fit, for me as being large busted, was close but not snug. The buttons are the slippery type that I suspect will be unbuttoning themselves- don't you love when that happens? Probably the biggest downside for this blouse is the fact that it is a very light fabric meaning you may want to wear a cami under it. Ii will say it comes out of the dryer in wearable condition if you are there to hang it up right away.
