Beautiful colors
Date:February 24, 2014
I purchased this top in the Aqua and Red shades and I love them both! They are classy and versatile. I have worn both colors with black slacks and a black blazer and loved the look. One night after work I was on my way to an NBA game, and our team's colors are red and black. A quick change to jeans and throwing my hair up in a pony tail made for the red one being a good sports game outfit, not being too dressy or too casual.
I agree the color is a little off between the overlay and the actual shirt, but it wasn't enough stop me from purchasing it. The brightness of the colors was just too pretty to pass up.
Also, the Medium fits true-to-size and this shirt holds to expected The Limited quality.

Cute button down!
Date:February 17, 2014
I really like this shirt! I passed by it on a mannequin at the front of the store and had to try it on. I bought the blue one with the smaller printed design - I think it was incorrectly labelled on here because this one does not have sailboats at all, it's really just a small blue and white square dot pattern.
I got this is a Medium, and the fit is PERFECT on me. I have a large chest (34ddd) and for once, I am wearing a button down shirt that doesn't look pulled across my chest without having go to up to sizes that do not flatter my waistline. Great for me, maybe not so great for smaller ladies.
I marked the quality down one star because, although I do not think it is bad quality, the only button downs from The Limited that I've bought in the past were the Essential Shirt and the Ashton Blouse and, for being the exact same price, this does not feel nearly as high quality, probably because it is 100% cotton versus the blend or polyester of the others. I do not trust that this won't shrink in the dryer so I will be hang drying this.

Good Quality Staple Shirt
Date:January 29, 2014
I purchased both the black and white Essential Shirts when trying to replace some lower quality ones I had. The black shirt is my favorite button down I own, and I give that one five stars across the board. The white shirt...I have barely worn. I'd give it three stars. Another reviewer mentioned that the fit of these shirts has become more of a straight cut rather than fitted to a woman's shape (still fitted a little, but not like other Limited shirts). On the black shirt, this cut is great. It still hints at a lady shape and is quite slimming and very professional. On the white...I don't think the cut looks as good. Also, the white is very white...I think I might like it more if they made more of a soft white or off-white shirt. I have very fair skin and this washes me out. I am worried about stains too - I haven't worn it enough that anything has gotten on it, but I'm not sure how well it will hold up when that happens, especially because of how bright the white is.
However, these shirt are really good quality and very comfortable. I also appreciate that there is ample room in the bust area (I am a 34DDD and this is one of the few button ups that I can button over my bust without buttons looking like they're going to pop).
I think it is important to have both a black and white button up as a staple in your professional wardrobe, and I will completely recommend the black shirt. The white I suppose is personal preference. I think it might look very nice on someone with darker skin than I have (like the model in the picture)

First Pair of Drew Pants
Date:January 27, 2014
I really like these pants. They are very comfortable and are a great look for the office. Unlike other reviewers, I don't think the colored flecks look like lint...I matched the green flecks with a green sweater and I think the outfit turned out looking great.
My only one tiny complaint is the fit, but this is my first pair of Drew pants so I can't say for sure if I'm just not a Drew person or if it is this pair in particular...but I am a size 8 in about 90% of The Limited's bottoms that I've owned. I am still in a size 8 in these pants but it feels much tighter around the waistband and butt areas. If I were to size up, I don't think it would stay up in the back when sitting or bending, so I will keep my size 8. They fit my legs great and are overall flattering, so I am still happy.

Gorgeous piece!
Date:January 23, 2014
I tried this on in the store simply because it was on markdowns, but I fullly expected not to like it...the high neck is not a style I have ever been able to pull off. But I was wrong! The cut of this dress is incredible. I always appreciate dresses that show off nice muscle tone in arms and shoulders without looking masculine. The sheer detailing is beautiful, and I love the look of the back with the buttons behind the neck and an opening in the middle of your back. Absolutely gorgeous.

Pretty but..
Date:January 23, 2014
I felt like this dress was missing something. Like, the dress was pretty enough but I felt like I would need to be wearing a jacket or scarf or something to feel like my outfit was complete. I LOVED the coloring but just wasn't worth it to me.

Beautiful, Beautiful
Date:January 23, 2014
This dress is absolutely beautiful, and I love the lace detailing against the material of the rest of the dress. The material is soft and very comfortable, yet the piece looks so classy and elegant. I purchased this in black, but both the red and the black were stunning.

Cute but not for large chests
Date:January 23, 2014
I have always wanted a simple dress like this - solid color, boatneck, and longsleeve. I thought this was it for me...until I tried it on. The dress itself is great, but it doesn't work on a 34DDD chest.Going over my chest, it pulled the waist band up my abdomen so it was more in the place of an Empire Waist...which is not the style I was going for. I could see this working very nicely on someone smaller chested, probably a C or less, but not for me. I LOVED the skirt and the sleeves though.

Cute and Flattering
Date:January 22, 2014
After seeing this online, I loved the shape of the dress but could decide if I liked the pattern, so I went to try this on in the store. On the hanger, I admit I was a little disappointed...but then I put it on. Oh my goodness. This is one of the most flattering dresses I have ever put on. I am thin but by no means skinny (5'9, 150lbs), and I felt like a model in this dress. It made my waist look tiny, and I absolutely adore the way the skirt swishes around the legs. With tights and a blazer it might be okay for work, but I'm excited about this for any dress up occasion.

Short but great jeans
Date:January 22, 2014
Agreeing with other reviewers here...I am a little annoyed at the fact these are a little shorter than the other 917 pants I've tried on. It wasn't enough to stop me from buying them (although if they were any shorter I wouldn't have), but the rest of the fit is perfect. Definitely flattering and comfortable. I will be getting a lot of use out of them.

Shellbell12's Questions
 

Is this jacket roomy?

I am a Medium in most tops from The Limited. Does this coat fit the same way as the other mediums, or is there more room inside for wearing a sweater or smaller jacket underneath? I'm just trying to figure out if it requires sizing up, or if getting a Large would be way too big on me.

What is the hem like on this shirt? Is it tucked in on the model or shorter in the front or rolled under?

It is tucked in on the model. Same length in front and back.

Is this dress true to its size?

Close to true-to-size, but size down if you're between. I am usually an 8, sometimes a 10 depending on the item. The 8 felt a little loose, probably because of the stretch of the fabric, so I tried a 6 as well. I ended up buying the 8 but I'd say this runs slightly large.

How does this dress fit?

Does it fit too small to big?
Seems either true to size or maybe slightly small. I am usually a size 8 but my local store was out of 8's so I tried a 10. A little looser than I would have liked but not as loose as 10's usually feel to me.

Can "online only" purchases be returned at a store?

Definitely. The Limited is very easy to return to in-store, as long as it's within 60 days of the date printed on your packing slip.

Is this skirt high or low-waisted?

I'm looking for a skirt that is low-waisted, that sits just above the hips.
This might be a little higher than what you're looking for. Mine sits partway between my hips and waist, so it all depends on how it fits you. Sorry if that isn't helpful!

does this shirt need to be ironed?

I would say usually typically yes, or take it out of the dryer immediately and hang it up.

You could also get a wrinkle-releaser (I recommend Downy's), and that could get you by if you want to wear this more than once between washes or if it gets wrinkled in the closet. In the morning as you're getting ready, just spray the wrinkle releaser lightly all over the shirt, and stick it in the dryer while you shower, and voila!
