It's been reviewed a few times, but here is my take on it. The color is like the website, but not. It's silk, so it has a sheen and I think that bumps up the color intensity more. It's really a pretty shade of peachy pink, but it's not subtle. I think long dark hair would balance the color out, take it down a notch.
The fresh guava is the same in both the Harlowe (left) and the Kelly blouse (right). The silk, as I said, makes the color stronger. They are the same color in person.
Adding a necklace makes a huge difference. It's no longer just a block of color. I think it's ok/pretty good with my skin color. It's definitely shouting -- hey look at me, instead of -- hey look at her nice skin.
Adding a black blazer makes a big difference. I also think this color could work with a deep navy suit.
I love the fit and I love the feel of the silk on my skin. It's pretty good for chicks with small pooches. I aaalmost grabs at mine, but it falls over it ok. I am a 34C and this is a size 4. The blouse is 23" from shoulder to hem, measuring down the front. I was concerned about the fact that it buttons down the back. I was able to easily undo the top 2 buttons, pull the blouse overhead and rebutton it.
12/13/08 ETA: I received the snow leopard Harlow and it's beautiful. Not for me, though. The pattern is too busy for me and makes me look extra big. Something about the sheen of it doesn't work. I really think hair is a factor and if I had long hair, it would work. My short, sometimes spiky, hair competes with prints. So it's me, not the blouse.
12/13/08 Regarding fit: I tried it on again and the 4 extends a bit past my shoulders. I wish I had the size 2 to compare. I think a 2 would still fit in the bust, but the darts at the bottom (about 5" in length) would grab at my stomach. I think I'm happy with the 4. I'd say if you are on the bustier side, it's TTS for you. If you are thin boned and/or are on the smaller side in the chest department, size down one.
