LACE YOKE BUTTON BACK TOP
On the hanger, this blouse is beautiful, but once I put it on, it was horrible.
The color just looks too old-fashioned paired with the black lace and the fit (as I've noticed with a few of Express's more flowy tops this season) is too snug around my hips when it should flow and flatter! I am usually a small in Express tops -- 34D, size 8/10 jeans -- but neither the small or medium worked on me.
I think if Express made this in a beige or eggshell, it would be a winner.

I got this blouse and I love it. Not too formal and not too casual. I wore it today with my blk skinny jeans with the zipper on the side and have gotten a lot of compliments. I wear a small in everything but in the bust area it was a bit tight for me so I got a medium.

I want the long sleeves!
This top looked so elegant and sexy in the photos that I just had to order it the minute I saw it. I am obsessed with the portofino shirts and have them in nearly every color and pattern so I was really looking forward to adding a completely different style to my collection of blouses. I got it in the mail and while its pretty it only has 3/4 sleeves as other reviewers have mentioned, not the beautiful long bell sleeves as pictured and described. For sizing reference, I'm 5'4"/127/34A and I ordered an x-small and small (I vary between the two) and the x-small was too tight but even the small fit a little awkward at the bust. If Express actually manufactures this top as shown with the long sleeves I would definitely purchase. As is, its' just OK, nothing special, so back it goes.

This top ran small, I can normally wear an xs or a s in Express clothing but the small was too small. Also, the sleeves are not long sleeves like in the description and photo, they are 3/4 length.

I bought this shirt today and I like it a lot. I like the color and the feel of the fabric.
