FP ONE Pacific Time Blouse
Not as Pictured
This top is lovely and the pattern is very pretty however it is not nearly as flattering when its on as it is in the pictures! I'm a size 4 (s / xs) and it made me look massive as it is so balloony! I got a size s so the arm holes were fine however the neckline sat really weird and it just doesn't look as good as the pics! No way would I have paid so much money for this! I'd pay $20 max lol!
pretty / balloony
the shape is meant to be balloony, but with the v-neckline, it isn't unflattering. sizing down is definitely an option, but i like the sleeves (which have tiny openings) buttoned, so i'd rather stay with my regular size. the fabric is super light and sheer, and the color/print is very pretty.
This top is very beautiful and bought it in size medium because I find a lot of the oversized FP items fall off my shoulders even though I am listed as curvy. Well the print is lovely and it is a little on the fragile side, what really bugged me was the extremely tight cuffs on this. If you leave them buttoned up, you could risk tearing the delicate fabric so I am leaving them undone. Once I undid the cuffs it fit fine and I am usually a large in FP so that gives you a good idea of the room in this item.
Got this shirt in the store today, and it's very pretty, very balloon-y, though, so I sized down. I'm normally a S and got the XS (5'10, 130). Best to wear with skinny jeans or shorts like in the pic. It is very see-through, so you'll need a tank or something on underneath.
Not Exactly What I Expected
The blouse is nice enough but very flimsy and thin, much more so than it appears in the photos. As others have mentioned, the arm openings are TINY! I do like how it looks on though, and the pattern is unique and pretty. Probably a bit more expensive than it should be for what you get.
I would recommend sizing down- I ordered an extra small and its perfect and beautiful. I can't wait to wear with some shorts and sandals this spring!! It also looks cute with light wash jeans :)
I dig this top and it's element of flow. Given, arm holes are tiny, and hardly go past my mid forearm. Other than that, great buy! I love how deep the v-neck is. Gorgeous piece! <3
It ATE Me
I tried this in my usual large and it was just huge, but with very tight wrist openings. The volume of this shirt made me look dumpy, frumpy, and chunky. I tried sizing down to a small, but the wrist opening became so tiny I could barely get my hand through. The fabric is pretty, but sheer. This could have been great, but it's just too fluffy for my body type.
