Joie 'Eleanor' Top
okay ... not great
I hate to be the downer in this Joie lovefest. I ordered this top in S and XS. They both would have been fine (I am 5"4, 120 lb) - the top has a loose design so it is a question of comfort. Having said that they were very inconsistent - the XS was VERY wide around the neck and hung low on the back. The S was tighter around the neck and higher on the back. I found the material quite rough on my skin (it felt cheap), which was surprising for silk. The tie at the back is super cute, as are the sleeves. The neckline in the front is really blah - could not really get past this. Sent both tops back.
love this top!
bought this in red and brown/tan. love it's cutting. simple, feminine and classy. a versatile top.
Another gorgeous Joie top!
I bought this beautiful top in watermelon after seeing my 21 year old daughter wearing it with white jeans! So cute! The details of the pleated sleeves, tied drawstring bow in the back, and lovely silk fabric all add up to one very classy looking top.
Some of my other Joie tops are x-small, but I needed a small in this particular top. I'm pear shaped and the hip area was not a problem. Fit perfectly. Very comfortable and easy to wear. As usual with the Joie tops, it needs a camisole underneath!
This one was admittedly a little spendy for my wallet, but I have a hard time resisting Joie. And really, this top is an exercise in perfection. The fit is so graceful and feminine, and the bow in the back adds such a sublime detail that I totally didn't foresee being so smitten with!
First wear: about 10 compliments - ranging from my juice bar girl to several co workers.
