Liz Claiborne New York Watercolor Floral Pleated Tunic
First bought two of these tops in medium. On arrival, tried them on and they were too big. Sent back. Later, saw them on TV again. So, bought again in a size small. These fit. My disappointment is the fabric. Even though I tried it on previously, the fabric is very light and wrinkles easily. I don't like wrinkles. Also felt when I wore it, I felt it looked like a maternity top. Will keep them when I feel I have my fat days. But wish the fabric would be a little bit heavier. Sizing runs large; colors are pretty, though.
I purchased this blouse in the Thistle Purple and love the print but am returning the top
because there is too much material in the front and too much length (I am 5'7" ). Could have been a very cute top if the length and fullness in the front was taken into consideration by the manufacturer. Will be returning the top.
Very feminine and comfy. It runs large so I had to send it back. Go down a size.
I ordered the black and white, it looked so pretty on TV, but when I got it the colors are not crisp. The material is very thin, but I figure it is a summer blouse. It does look maternity like. I will keep and try it with some "women in control capri leggings" but really not happy with the purchase. And the buttons are ugly, I am shopping for replacements this weekend.
I love it!
My first purchase was too big, so I sent it back for a replacement and now that I have the correct size, I absolutely LOVE IT! It's very pretty. I purchased the black and cream and plan on tucking them in so I won't have the "maternity" look happening. I can see why others may find this top to be too matronly, but honestly just find a pair of cute shorts or capris and tuck them in. This top is too pretty to ignore :)
LIGHT AND AIRY
I had been watching this blouse on different shows and liked the "smoke and mirrors" efffect it seemed to have on the large size models so finally ordered the black/cream and love the way it looks. It is a thin material but I don't feel it appears cheap as others said. It is a cool airy blouse for summer and doesn't need a tank underneath but you could certainly wear one is that is your preference. I really love this top and am ordering another one in blue. I wear a size L and it fits true to size.
Received this LC blouse and all I can say is it's cheap and not worth $43.00 for it. I 've had thicker rags than this material and the stupid looking buttons don't help the look of it either. I'll wash it first to see if it makes it before deciding to send this rag back. Guess not everything on TV looks as good in person.
This is a cute top but the fabric is really thin. Wonder how many washing it will last through?
lovely summer blouse
I have this in the yellow and I love it. I wore it this weekend with khaki slim-leg pants and it looked great. The fabric is 100% cotton, which I love! In fact, I'd like to see more garments in natural fibers. Anyway, a quick pass with the steamer and the blouse was crisp and ready to wear. I received tons of compliments on this top. The pleats down the front are sewn down giving this a nicely tailored look through the bust. The top is certainly not a maternity style, but the design is clearly meant to be a casual, loose look - and it is. I found the garment to be true to size and the print to be sophisticated and not overwhelming. Thank you LCNY for a great top!
VERY THIN MATERIAL
My niece was visiting me and she saw this top and liked it. I ordered it for her in two colors. The neckline is really nice and the buttons look great. The colors were very pretty. But the material is very thin and feels super cheap. The bottom of the tunic sticks out in the front. It really does look like a maternity top. Have to send this back.
CHINSEY AND CHEAP LOOKING
What a disappointment. Thought this water-color look would be so smart for summer but the material is very thin, and cheap looking. As my grandmother would have said "Chinsey". And for Liz Claiborne, I thought this ran small. There is no stretch here, not that I expected any but I did expect it to flow better over the body. Not for me - back it goes. Don't know when I will ever learn my lesson.
Great Maternity Top
Pretty floral pattern, but definitley looks like a maternity top. Had to return it.
