Beaded drama top
Mixed Reviews on the Look
Though I would recommend to a friend, every time I look in the mirror I change my mind. Looks ok/looks not ok/looks ok/looks not ok. I am rather short with a short torso, so I imagine this cut out shoulder item may look better on someone taller. The shirt itself is nice and was very cool at a party where everyone else was dying of the heat.

I love it and receive many compliments. I might tack the open sleeves in the middle though, just for modesty and warmth! (Mostly WARMTH!) The color rocks with my reddish hair and I feel great it this top!

Not What I Expected
There isn't too my wrong with the shirt so much as it's not what I expected it to be. In the first place from online it was hard for me to tell whether or not it was a shirt or just a sheer to wear over a tank top- for those also wondering it's the latter, which to me it seems a bit pricey for just a sheer piece when the tank tops are between $15 and $20 themselves. Since I happened to also be purchasing the undershirt this wasn't so much of a problem.
The sleeves are not a separate portion to the shirt, meaning they're sewn in with the body of it. So if you go to raise your arms up the entire sheer comes with you. I understand for most this probably isn't a problem, but you definitely can't tell that by the picture and for me the whole "bat-wing" shirt thing isn't appealing.
Also the color is a few shades darker than what's shown online, so if you're looking for that color specifically imagine it as a darker almost forest green [bought this in botanical garden].
Overall the fit is decent, it's some what flatter depending on your frame. If you have a very large gut around the belly button area that sticks out and also a wide buttocks the shirt won't hang how it's supposed to and you should go a size bigger. If that's not a problem for you then it lays beautifully. I also wouldn't recommend it to anyone with very narrow shoulders, it gives you a pear shape effect, even if you're busty.
This review wasn't to attack the shirt itself, it's a very pretty shirt and I'm mostly satisfied with it. I just think people should know what they're getting into if they've only seen it online.
