This is the photo from Nordstrom which made me really want to get it initially... actually it makes me want to get the leather skirt too. =P
It's amazing how pictures do sell. The photos from Ruelala are not nearly as amazing looking. If I hadn't already been wanting this top, I doubt I would have bought it based on these photos... they are not bad, but just kind of meh.
Anyway, I bought it immediately because I was afraid my size would be sold out lol. So I got size S, and it fits! I love this top! It's actually not even too bad looking being untucked. I think I need to tuck it if I wear it without a blazer though. The side looks a bit too baggy when it's hanging out.
It's hard to see, but the back actually has a cute keyhole detail on the top.
I love the lace inset design. The black mesh panels on the sides also give a slimming look.
The second top I got is also by Robbi & Nikki and also only $25. It is a colorblock top and the green part is metallic. I love the color combo and the back zipper too. Makes it look just a little bit more unique.
This is a size small as well. This top is actually quite sheer. So you would have to wear a tank under. Here I have a white one under, which kind of blends in on the bottom with the white panel of the top. But I think a black cami would work as well.
The zipper weights the back down a little though, that's why you see the V shape at the bottom.
This one is size small too. The front is a bit longer. It's also very sheer. You must wear a tank under. I have the same white one under.
There is a clasp closure which keeps the cross part closed:
