PERFECT is RIGHT! This is so CUTE. :o) I don't consider myself a print person either, but THIS looks great! I was mulling over some swirly stuff last night and just couldn't bring myself to use it, but maybe you've pushed me over the edge! :o)

Nancy, your top is superbly stylish and an excellent combination of fabric , design and trim. B&W prints suit you very well. Great work and thank you for sharing with us !!!

Very nice looking top! Your fabric choice is so perfect.

I think the tunic looks better on you obviously than the Burda model (They will be calling you any day for work!), but I also think Tory Burch should be paying you some homage as yours looks much better. Super looking on you and great review Nancy.

Hmmmm, I think you ARE a print person, because you look fabulous in your top. Wonderful top, I absolutely love it! I think I have the pattern so i may just have to copy you. :-)

Gorgeous top! This looks fabulous on you. I love your combination of print fabric with the two different ribbon widths. The top looks very designer and expensive. Perfect marriage of pattern, fabric and trim! Great job!

I saw a woman wearing a RTW tunic in this very print yesterday, and I loved it. Your top, of course, has even more style. Love the idea that the slit " helps with hot flashes!" You did an excellent job grading sizes to achieve a perfect fit.

Nancy, I'm totally loving this top. I know you don't see yourself as a print person, but you're totally happening in this tunic!

You may not be a "print person" but this print looks fabulous on you! It's a great top to begin with, but your fabric choice and trim make it even better.

You're absolutely right, this is the right fabric for this tunic Nancy! You certainly made a great homage. And though that's a very personal matter, I like your colors better.

What a great tunic. You've done a great interpretation of the TB look. You look super stylish!

Do you KNOW how fab you look, Nancy!! Not a print person either, but this... oh la la! Maybe it's the white trim near your face, or the fantastic earrings, or... Oh- it's the whole package! Very inspirational.

Very, very pretty and classy tunic. The white-on-print trim around the neck, sleeves, and hem is an inspired touch.
