2nd purchase of same blouse
I purchased this item the first time I saw it because I so appreciated a color mix that had the effect of being more solid than wild print in the sense that it was all shades of several colors without white detracting from it. This is difficult to achieve, but this blouse reflects the achievement.
I have never worn this blouse without receiving compliments. Sometimes I wear blouse, and other times I wear blouse more like a jacket over a purple tank. Comfortable. Easy care. No ironing needed if removed from dryer promptly. Always receive compliments - even from strangers. I enjoy it so much that I ordered a second one when it was on sale because I cannot imagine NOT having one on hand and ready to wear. Tried to order the other color in same blouse but was too late to get my size.
Try it. You'll like it!

The colors make this shirt!
First I bought the deep violet shirt which includes other purples and a touch of periwinkle, and got so many compliments! The abstract floral print has beautiful, jewel-like colors. It goes with anything purple, blue-violet or peri in my wardrobe and adds pizzazz to black or navy.
Fit is just a bit smaller than I'm used to, but is still wearable, fitting more like my usual 16P size in the Foxcroft "fitted" 3/4 sleeve blouses than the more ample classic long-sleeve Foxcroft 16P (my longtime ideal point of reference for sizing). I'm 5'1" and the cuffed sleeves are just right -- no extra sleeve length to spare. Looks nice with cuffs flipped back, too.
The all-cotton fabric looks best with a bit of touch up ironing to smooth the collar and front placket.
When the sale price was offered, I snapped up the Alpine Teal in a flash. Once again, immediate compliments. Colors are four shades of blue greens and teal with a touch of avocado. These are beauties!
