Thoughts: When I first saw this blouse online, I wasn't too sure if I wanted it or not. I like the style, the color, and how unique the shirt is. On the other hand, the style isn't popular here in the US. Then I read the reviews and they were all good. That changed my mind!
Here's the overall shirt. It's not that shiny in person. The flash from the camera made it shiny.
Here's a closer look at the neck area.
Here's a closer look at the ruffles in the front of the blouse.
Here's a closer look at the sleeve of the shirt.
Here's how the blouse looks on me. Unfortunately, I have no one to take pictures for me. I have to take pictures myself.
Here's a closer look of the ruffles in the front while wearing the blouse. I wore this top with jeans.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all after opening the main bag, I could see a peek through the plastic bag the blouse was in and the color was gorgeous. Out of all the tops I got, I was most excited to open this one. My biggest fear before getting this shirt is knowing it comes in one size. We all know Asian sizing is smaller than American. I wear American size 6/medium. I'm not a tiny girl neither on the other side. I think I'm average in American sizing. Considering my bone frame, I'm big and need to lose some weight. With that said, Asian sizing scares me. I have gotten clothes in the past that are one size and some of them were smaller than expected. I've also got sizes that fit me perfectly. I have never gotten any that was too big. Basically, I was taking a chance. One thing great about the website is they actually list the dimension of the blouse on the page. I don't have to look around the website like others I have seen. That's a huge thumbs up for me. If you are like me, the dimension doesn't mean much. I just cannot seem to remember my size no matter how many times I get measured. Thankfully, the blouse fit perfectly on me. If you are bigger than what I wear, it might be on the tight side. If you are smaller than me, it will be loose. It actually might look cuter that way but I'm not 100% sure. Secondly, I just compared it to the website and the color looks different in person. On the website, it looks more lavender. In person, it's more pinkish purple. I actually think the color is prettier in person but that's my own personal taste. Other than the color, everything else looks the same as the website. I was pretty impressed how accurate they are on the website. From my experience, Zaful is as close as possible. I consider the accuracy like an American website. Third, the fabric seemed a little rough when I received it. It kind of reminded me of a softer version of a rain coat. It also was wrinkled and there were some loose threads. The threads were no issue since I can cut it with a scissor. Here's the funny thing. I decided to iron the shirt. After I iron the shirt, it felt soft. It didn't feel like a softer version of rain coat. It felt like a nice, thin, polyester shirt. Fourth, I wore it with jeans and sandals. It really is gorgeous and I really like the style a lot! I wore nothing underneath other than a bra that day. It is up to you but the next time I wear this shirt, I will have a tank underneath. Since it's so loose and the day I wore it, it was kind of windy. The wind blew the shirt up which was not a pretty sight. Thankfully, nobody was around. Also, I noticed it easily gets stuck. I wear my purse around my shoulder like a body bag. The ends of the blouse would grab onto the handle of the strap and I can feel the blouse rise up. With that said, it's fashionable and really gorgeous. This will look great on teenagers up to young adults. Even though I'm a little bit older, I still like it. It'll be great for spring, summer, and fall. It'll also be great to war as casual to slightly dress up. Lastly, I'm so glad I got this shirt. I love it to pieces!

Pros:
* Company carefully ship the products.
* Great for sizes XS to M; blouse comes in one size.
* Website lists the dimensions of the clothes; you don't need to search around the site.
* Accuracy of the website is pretty good.
* Gorgeous pinkish purple color.
* Easy to iron.
* Blouse was soft after I iron.
* Fashionable.
* Gorgeous!
* Great for teenagers to young adults.
* Great for spring, summer, and fall season.

Cons:
* Hard to find in stores.
* Might be too tight for L to XL; blouse comes in one size.
* Color of the blouse is different than the website.
* Blouse was wrinkle, slightly rough, and there were loose threads.
* Shirt easily rise up; recommend wearing something underneath.

Would repurchase: Yes.
