A95239 - Dialogue Sleeveless Button Front Blouse with Ruffle Trim
Love The Color, Hate The Fit
I got this in the berry/pink and adored the color. It was super flattering with my skin tone, but the fit was really weird. It was not true to size--it was too big, and strangely baggy in all the wrong spots when belted. Also, the extra strips of straight fabric below the ruffles aren't tacked down along the sides of the button panel and as a result they are flappy, floppy, and just plain strange. Too bad I already wore it, or I'd have returned it.
This blouse is stunning. It can be dressed up or dressed down with jeans. It is so comfortable. Ladies you must get this one. You will fall in love with it. The fit is true to size.
You do need to size down. I usually get smalls because I like the clothes more form-fitting, and this would have fit better in the XS. That being said, I love the V, love the color (pink), and liked the fit and overall styling. it is a little different than what you normally see. The edges of the ruffle fabric are not finished, and that rawness makes it a touch less frilly, which I like. The big factor for me was that once the ruffles end, the ruffle fabric just falls straight down and is only tacked to the rest of the blouse on the button side. This creates 2-inch wide, wing-like flaps down the front of the shirt that flutter in the breeze with every movement (hence, why it is first belted on the model in the video!!!). Now, my tummy does not need wings. These should have been trimmed way back or tacked down IMO. So back it goes! Bring this style back without the flaps and its a keeper!!!! I think if I were taller this would be less of an issue.
What a bargain!!
I only gave this 4 stars because you need to size down on this one. I thank all the reviewers for this information. I bought both colors and they are beautiful, comfortable and a very classic style. I got these on a Lunchtime Special at a steal of a deal.. At the current sale price get both colors you won't be sorry. Do size down one size on this top.
Great Summer Top for a Steal!
I ordered as a Lunchtime Special in the blue and received it today. It's a lovely top, particularly for the price. The ruffle detail is perfect and I like that it has an elastic "patch" in the back. I ordered in the L and it fits great. I'm considering the pink even at a higher price it's such a deal! The blue, FYI, is more of a green turquoise and not quite as pictured on .com. In any case, a lovely little summer top that I'll get plenty of wear out of!
This top is pretty, well-made but runs large in sizing. I looked under "click here" and didin't see a chest measurement, played it safe, and ordered a medium, (36C) aand way too big, all around, and the armholes are cut way too deep, and show cami-bra, etc. Not even in a Small would I order this. Way too long in the length, as well.
BEAUTIFUL!!! SHIRT & GREAT FABRIC!!!!!
I am so much in love with this shirt....it is really quite dressy due to the shine of the material & the pleats! Alot of great workmanship....I would say the "deep blue" is really a darker & vibrant turquoise. Very flattering colour & this shirt feels so nice against the skin....,such a silky feel! I ordered my regular size, a Large, and the fit couldn't be any better! Will be wearing it to a wedding later on this month with off white slacks....I"ll be styling!!!
Love this Shirt!
This shirt is beautiful in the blue. I have a deep blue Dialogue cardigan which is now on clearance btw, that matches perfectly. I received lots of compliments at work. Also 1 thing I did not notice in the presentation was there are little snaps on the shoulder area to corral your bra straps from falling out. Comfortable fit & nice details.
Very V Neck
I ordered this in Very Berry in my usual size, Small. It runs big and the V neck is too plunging for my taste. Also the fabric is thinner than I expected and it clung to me with static. It's a cute design, though.
Very cute top. I purchased the blue and the color is pretty. Fit is true to size, a cute and flattering style for the warm months, or would be cute under a sweater.
the cutest top!!!!
this is such a cute top!!!!!! but the other reviewers are right; it does run big. I ordered a medium but had to exchange it for a small. it wears perfectly with pencil skirts, susan graver pants and even jeans. the pink is pretty. ladies you will love this one!!!
Femininity at its best...
When I saw that this blouse was on sale, I jumped at the opportunity to purchase both gorgeous colors. Not to mention, I'm really into the ruffle-look this year and was elated that I could find a gorgeous, ruffle blouse in my size. I purchased a 1X and it fit perfectly. I have to admit that I could have gotten an XL and it would have fit just as good, but I figure that with the possibility of shrinkage after a wash or two, I was satisfied with my decision on the 1X. I love how Dialogue took the ruffle detail behind the neckline also, which makes it even more feminine and sassy. You can definitely play this up for the office or play it down casually with a pair of jeans. I wish Dialogue would make this in black, purple, royal blue, and even white.
