Reviews: Tops, Tops and More Tops

Good afternoon ladies! I am SO glad the sun is out today as yesterday was just a rainy, yucky mess! I have some pics sitting here on my hard drive and I figured I'd share them with you.

Lustrious Lavilere Top $88 Yoana Baraschi
This is not a top I would normally try on. It fits TTS and this is the beige color. The sequined and beading details are really cute, but I would wait for the sale on this one.

Molded and Melded Tee $48

 Here's a tee that everyone wishes would go on sale, but doesn't. Truth be told, it's a little big, but I bought it anyway because it's an awesome green. I'm hoping it will shrink a tad when I wash it. It is VERY soft and worth checking out. I would say, wait for the sale, but you might be waiting a long time.

Scattered Clouds Tee - Little Yellow Button (now $40)

 Here's a piece I would hesitate to wear on its own. It's kind of...meh. The black ribbon detail on the collar is really nice, but at the end of the day, it's nothing special. I found it kind of shapeless on my frame. If you can style this up, it's a good deal. Maybe wait for a second cut?

Loosely Looped Tee $58 Deletta

 Hmmm...okay. When I first saw this online, I was so excited. In person it's okay. I don't know what I was expecting. It's a nice fit and the jersey is really soft and lovely. It's a cute little tee and the collar is really special! I will wait for the sale on this one.

Floral Frappe Top $58 Deletta

 Okay, here's one I like a lot! It fits really well and the little detailing on one side is super cute! It would be great on its own or under a blazer or something. Wishlisted for further consideration!

Daylight Aurora Top $78 Bordeaux

I noticed this top immediately when it hit the website and I loved it! When I tried it on, it did not disappoint. This is my normal xs and it fits TTS for me (maybe it runs a tad small since I tend to be a little smaller than xs). The color is a muted rosy blush, not "beige" as described on the website. I can't say enough good things about it. It's very flattering and I think it would be very versatile in any wardrobe. I think $78 is a little much, so wishlisted for sale!

That's it! I hope that wasn't too disappointing!


  1. I've been waiting to that darn Molded and Melded Tee to go on sale forever! I love the green on you, it's a lovely color (glad you bought it, that color is very popular)! And I'm also loving the Floral Frappe Top on you too - I've been waiting for someone to review it! You just look awesome in green, gal! I hope you consider it; that one just popped a little higher on my wishlist! :)

  2. Haha! Thanks, girlie! I am loving green and yellow this season. How unfair is it that the Molded and Melded Tee is on sale in the Europe?! Also...I am still waiting for that darn Manor Gates dress to go on sale. It's not even on the website anymore!

  3. I love when you do reviews because I'm also petite (5'2"), so it's nice to see what the styles look like on you. Although, maybe if I'd get my butt to my local Anthro I could find out myself. :)

  4. I really like the green one on you, it looks good with your skin also a little obsessed with green this season.

  5. I love the Floral Frappe Top. It certainly does wonders for you. The shoulder detailing is dramatic. I don't have enough Green in my closet. My eyes are Green so I really should.

    I am a Bordeaux fan. I particularly love the Daylight Aurora Top. The lace detail is girly, yet the cut screams "I'm bad."

    The blush color looks perfect on you Kay. It would likely wash me out. Maybe there will be an additional colorway coming our way. I would wish for Baby Blue.

    Thanks for your great reviews. Laura

  6. Liz, thanks! It's always a little dicey when you are shorter than 5'4 and you try on some things, right?

    Nina, wait for the OOTD :)

    Laura, The Daylight Aurora Top in baby blue...? I love the idea!

  7. gosh, I'm really loving the floral frappe on everyone. Guess I'll have to check it out! Thanks for the reviews!

  8. gosh, I'm really loving the floral frappe on everyone. Guess I'll have to check it out! Thanks for the reviews!
