    I'm wearing the ivory confetti blouse to a New Years party. A loose, flowy shirt that can be dressed up or down. As a DD bust, I'm happy my normal size worked. You may want to size down if you have a smaller bust or like a more fitted silhouette.

      I felt guilty about ordering this for myself this time of year when I should be shopping for others, but that 25% off was so enticing. I was hoping I wouldn't like it so I could send it back. I LOVE IT and I'M KEEPING IT. I am 5'9" 150 lbs, an athletic pear shape. I usually wear a size 8 top in Boden and this fit perfectly. I bought the navy with the gold flowers. I love the pattern, color and design-- the tucks at the neck, the collar, and the 3/4 sleevesI I wore it the evening of the first day it arrived, with skinny jeans and boots, and received compliments on it. It can also be dressed up. I plan to purchase more...after the holidays!

          This shirt is dressy without being matronly and the colors on the vintage option include a bit of navy as well as the yellow and black that are more obvious at first glance so it accomplishes a rare task of matching both black and navy skirts. It is soft and well cut, but I will dry clean it so as not to have to mess with the neckline and pleating. I am so pleased with its flattering fit that I plan to order other colors.

            I ordered this in the confetti spruce and couldn't be more pleased. I'm a size 18 and it fits perfectly, skimming the body. The design is different and stylish. I took a chance on a larger, more bright pattern than I usually wear, but I do love it. I recommend this one.

                  For reference I ordered size 6 and I am 5'5" 129-131 lbs, 33.5/28.5/37.5 with narrow shoulders. The fit is great and I may have been ok with a 4 (but I wanted a little more wiggle room). The collar and the sleeves really make this a special piece. I wear it to work and church. I ordered the ivory confetti based on other reviewers comments and it did not disappoint. Can wear with so many different colors. I will buy more.

                    Very fun blouse. Love the pattern and fit. Very classic design. Ordered the pink (which is great) but, decided I liked the yellow color better.

                      This top just feels good... The fabric drapes perfectly, and skims the skin in a way that doesn't feel restrictive, but you know it gives you a bit of shape. It is lightweight enough for me to wear under a cardigan or jacket (difficult sometimes as I run hot), and yet heavy enough to stand alone as a polished top. The length and finished hem also allow versatility as far as tucking in or wearing untucked. Today I wore it alone, untucked with black trousers and received several compliments. I would be overstating to call it a Holy Grail shirt, but it's close. The only negative is that I occasionally have to adjust the sleeves; they ride up a bit when I sit and type. Highly recommend.
