Liz Claiborne New York Mini Leaves Colorblock 3/4 Sleeve Tuni
Beautiful print, but....
The print of this fabric is beautiful and I was looking forward to receiving it. Sizing is way off. It fits like a tent. I ordered medium as I am most certainly not a small and the shirt was huge. Order several other Liz shirts the same day, in medium, and they all fit. Gave it two stars because of the pretty print and the price is good, but if you want to give it a try order at least one size smaller...maybe two, it's that big.
As I'd hoped...
I ordered this blouse in both the coral and black patterns, and am happy with both purchases. It is a pleasantly thin top, but has enough going on that it's not too sheer. I ordered the Medium, and am happy with the fit. I am a 'sturdy' woman with sort of broad shoulders, and it fits nicely through my shoulders. It's a little longer than I prefer, but it doesn't pull around the butt (and I have a butt!) in an unflattering way, so I'm keeping both shirts.
I RECEIVED THIS TOP AND UPON REMOVING IT FROM THE BAG AND TOUCHING IT, I KNEW IT WAS GOING BACK.
IT IS LIKE A PIECE OF STIFF TISSUE PAPER. I AM NOT SURE I HAVE EVER FELT ANYTHING QUITE LIKE THIS MATERIAL EXCEPT WHEN WRAPPING A GIFT.
BACK IT WENT WITHOUT EVEN CONSIDERATION OF KEEPING IT.
I liked the idea of this blouse. It looks really cute online. When I got it home, the material was very pretty and light which is what I was looking for, for summertime in California. Unfortunately, when you put it on it puckers around the shoulder area. It just doesnt look good on. Sent back.
Pretty, but there is something not quite right about it, at least on me. It it also too long on me and if I take it up, I will lost the bottom print. I really wanted to like this but sadly I think it has to go back.
Great hot weather fabric...
and that's the reason for the purchase. Looks okay on me and I like the buttons. The fabrication is thin cotton--perfect for hot and humid weather. However, it's just not made all that well and I waited for the clearance price to purchase this top. I did go up to a small as I am a bit hippy---and it works. Really just an average purchase for me. Nothing to get excited about.
Pretty but not as nice as other LC
This is a very light weight top that looks nice on me but nothing to go crazzy over. The overall fit is not ideal. I decided to keep since the shipping back added to the overall price and wasnt worth shipping back.
Great for hot weather
I bought this in the blue and I'm considering getting the beige. This is a nice light weight tunic for the humid Florida summers. While the fabric is fine it isn't sheer, particularly with the overall small pattern. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating was the buttons. The buttons are pretty, but too heavy and badly placed; they seem to drag the front of the shirt down. I changed the buttons for small flat white buttons and I'm much happier with the way it looks.
First Liz Disappointment
I love LCNY and looked at this top for months then took the plunge and bought it. Got it today, tried it on. It looked like a tent on me. Too much material, Same size I always get, small but not for me. So disappointed, have never sent a Liz back, but have to this time. The pattern is beautiful but...
I only have one other LCNY top, a long-sleeve t-shirt, that fits me very well. So, I ordered the same size, small, even though the measurements warranted an x-small. Mistake. It fit me around the shoulders, but fanned out from there. I have a small bust and waist, I decided not to try the XS, since the cut was so generous from the bust down, with no shape. The material is a wonderful soft, lightweight, cotton, and the print is nice. I think this would work for a busty gal.
I really liked the style of this top (on TV) and the fabric feels very nice and light for summer - pretty too, in the pink-coral shade - but oh - my - goodness! What happened to their fit model? THis is fine everywhere except around the arms. This top is cut very strangely around the armholes. THey are very tight and actually seem to be in wrong place on the garment. It's hard to explain exactly what the problem is. THe sleeves themselves weren't really that snug, just the armholes. This is going back post-haste!
This was the first Liz Claiborne New York item I ever bought from QVC although I've been a QVC customer for years. This will be the last Liz Claiborne purchase I make. There aren't words for my disappointment. Many years ago I bought Liz Claiborne from a major dept store and I remember the clothes were a bit pricey but excellent quality and well made. This item looked beautiful on the air and on QVC.com. It is so not worth the price for so many reasons. So disappointing. Sent it right back.
