Joan Rivers Bell Sleeve Tunic with Jeweled Neckline
This is just a great top, it works for weekend lunch with the ladies or out to dinner. The material is lightweight, the jeweled neckline and sleeves have some weight, and it's super comfortable. This shirt is not clingy - if you have a substantial waistline, then it's possible. But I found this comfy and I have a bit of tummy - and I find it forgiving.
LOVE THIS TOP!
I purchased the purple in a small (and wear a medium in "store-bought" clothes) and I disagree with the other reviewer who said it was made for someone without a "tummy". I am one of those ladies...after 63 years and 4 kids I have "earned" it. It fits beautifully and not tight at all. First day I wore it to work got sooo many compliments. Remember that anything purple is good for us Red Hat ladies!. I am a co-queen and will wear this top to many of our functions.
cut too narrow
I really liked this top and I felt the jeweled neck and sleeves were fine. However, it was cut for someone without a stomach and fit perfectly on the top, but very snug on the bottom and was very unattractive for that reason. Had to send back.
I have purchased this top in brown and black in several sizes as I have lost weight. My FAVORITE top!!! fabric is wonderful, and it is SO comfortable, and it looks so classy! I wondered if Joan has some brown pants to match the brown top. Am currently wearing a lighter coordinating color but would like some brown Joan pants. Joan Rivers pants also fit GREAT. Also own lots of Joan's pins and necklaces...any chance of a fall leaf pin to come? I LOVE your clothes and jewelry, (LOVE the bees, butterflies, and dragon flies!) Ms. Rivers!! thank you, too, QVC!
Pretty if you are tiny, but MUCH too clingy. Had to return.
I like the fabric, although the "jewels" seem to weigh it down a bit, so that the body of the tunic feels light and airy but the sleeves feel heavy. The fit is a little large, but overall I do like the top.
STYLE NOT FLATTERING ON ME
This tunic is very well made as are all of Joan Rivers fashions. However, I'll be returning it bkz there isn't a structured shoulder in this style of tunic which is more flattering on me. So without a structured shoulder, this tunic is not a good value for me. I ordered the brown & purple. Both colors and their coordinating jeweled necklines are gorgeous. Length is perfect to wear w/skinny jeans or leggings. Recommend trying this tunic if you know this style is flattering to your body.
I ordered down a size since I read the sizing information. Nice top. I ordered the purple and got it on sale. Can't beat it. Rarely disappointed in Joan's clothes.
PURPLE COLOR IS NOT A PRETTY SHADE
THE FULL SLEEVES WITH A BOAT NECKLINE MAKES THIS LOOK LIKE BEADS ON A SHROUD.
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!
Love the material , the jewels, the fit and everything else about it.
VERY PRETTY BUT...
This is a very pretty blouse and appears to be well made. I believe the material will be easy to care for and wrinkle free with a handwash and drip dry. It looks great on the models but was not the right cut for me. It was too long overall and the sleeves were way too big and bulky. Would probably look best on a taller person not an average height person like me. Not usually disappointed with Joan's items but this one is going back.
I love this tunic because it is well made and flattering. I get a lot of compliments on it especially about the jewels. My only complaint (minor) is that the openings of the sleeves are extra large and they sometimes get caught on the end of railings. However, this won't change my mind about this shirt. I would recommend this to anyone! Thanks Joan... keep them coming!
