Review and Giveaway: Ministry of Supply Easier Than Silk Nehru.

Last week I posted about the Ministry of Supply pants I was sent and how much I like them. I like them so much! They also sent me an Easier Than Silk Nehru top which was so generous of them, but I had a really hard time picking a size for because, as often happens, I fall in between the sizes on the chart.

I tried their live chat service but got into the usual polite argument where the chat representative insisted the measurements on the size chart are body measurements and I point out they're actually garment measurements. (This happened with Grana too and I wish online retailers would just get it together already because I AM CONFUSED.) Anyway! It's a really nice blouse but I bought the wrong size (a medium) and I'm not sure the color is great on me either (but that's totally my fault):



It's a really nice blouse. The fabric is great - light, wrinkle-resistant and washable. I love the good details, like chest darts and a drop hem but it's just too big on me, especially in the shoulders and sleeves. The small probably would've been a better fit on top but I suspect too tight around my hips and the nehru style really needs to fall straight. 


The blush color is awfully pretty but doesn't do much for me, unfortunately. I just wanted the pretty spring color!  In conclusion: This is a really nice blouse (size medium) but it just doesn't work for me. Maybe it would look better on you? I'll bet it would. I only wore it for the photo shoot, so it's basically brand new. If you'd like the Easier Than Silk Nehru top  for your very own, leave a comment. I'll pick a random number and post it on Friday! This giveaway is open worldwide. One entry per person, please.
