beautiful holiday colorIt was a little thinner than I'd anticipated, not thermal feeling at all, but it's very stylish

Not my favoriteI had high hopes for this top but ended up being disappointed. The color is a much brighter, lighter color than the forrest green I was expecting from the picture. It was also much thinner than expected and my normal size medium was much to big. I’ll be returning this.

Exactly right for the holidays!I was looking for some very specific characteristics, and found them ALL in this top! I will be traveling with one small bag for the holidays this year, and we have a number of plans all on NYE:
- Our family holiday meal and gift exchange, where we usually notch up our outfits a little.
- The family event will likely be at my parents', which is generally much hotter than I keep my own home (no sweaters!).
- Later that evening, we'll travel to a hotel in a nearby city - the hotel is not in walking distance to any of the evening's planned activities, including
- Dinner and a show - dress can be as fancy or casual as we like.
- First night fireworks - weather might be bitter cold and windy, snowing, raining, raw and chill, cool and crisp, or any combination of the above!
- Because we probably won't return to the hotel between the show and the fireworks, I am planning pants and layers.
- I prefer green for the holidays, as I don't like to wear red, and black just isn't festive enough for me.
Because I would like to pack a small bag, I wanted ONE top to cover all of this - and this is it! The weight is pretty light - something like a waffle knit tee (which it is advertised as), but the waffles are a bit bigger than a typical thermal tee. The silver threads glam it up beautifully, taking it out of "casual tee" category. It's just as comfy as any other tee though. The cowl neck is very nicely designed - not too big and bulky, with a very natural drape/droop (and I generally avoid cowl necks because they have just too much fabric on my well-endowed chest!). It will be ideal for the sauna at my parents' house, but will be nicely dressy for both the family dinner and the NYE restaurant dinner. It's got pizzazz for a NYE show in a nice theater, where some folks will be in gowns and others in jeans. And it's loose enough to allow as many layers as I need for the late-night NYE festivities. It will also fit comfortably under my warmest coat (some sweaters are a bit bulky for that).
On the subject of fit:
I am 5/1" and 170 lb. It comes to just below my tush, and could be worn with leggings (if that's your thing - definitely not mine!). The fit is loose and light enough to have a nice drape. Not too thin though - enough weight to nicely smooth over any bulges. The shoulder seam hangs well off the shoulder - maybe a 4" drop. This seems to work for the overall drape, but is generally not a style I choose. The sleeves are not too baggy - just right. Overall the L was quite comfy on me, and that would indicate it's cut quite large. If in-between sizes, size down.
OTOH, I haven't washed it yet, so if it's likely to shrink, maybe it's appropriately sized.
The green is a rich hunter green - just perfect for the activities I have planned. The ivory looks lovely too, and if I was 50 lb lighter, I'd probably pick that up for a future event. I can definitely see the green being useful for company holiday parties, family holiday get-togethers, NYE parties, or winter theater events. I suppose, if you regularly wear sparkly clothes, it would look nice for everyday too.
