Hidden Dragon Tee
Nice under a jacket
I had wanted this top for years because of the beautiful colors and design. When it finally went on sale, I purchased one even though it was still expensive for a t-shirt. However, when it arrived, I realized it was not a t-shirt at all, but a lovely, silky top for my black dress pants and skirts! Because it runs a little big, it makes a nice blouse-like top and looks great under a dressy black jacket. If it had been a t-shirt, it would have been perfect for jeans. I love it anyway and will wear it both ways!

this design is very interesting. i love the color combinations. i have yet to wash it so I don't know how it will do. also the fabric is not a cotton knit, more light weight and refined. hope it works out for me because i really like the top. i did order several to pick the best cut of the design for me.

I have a number of Asian-inspired tops from Norm Thompson that I love. When I saw the colors in this top, I was excited to order it and looked forward to wearing it. When it came I was dumbfounded at the fabric which is like a sleazy cheap nylon. I did try it on. The images on the fabric seemed disproportionately big and unflattering. Ugh.

I loved the colors
The top was not as vibrant as the catalog shows, but is pretty anyway. The fit was not right for me because the stretchy spandex was too clingy for me. I returned it for that reason.

This top is an "escape from the ordinary"
This is a unique rayon/spandex top that has a crossover design with contrast fabric edging and covered buttons. It's true that the colors aren't bright and the background isn't black; but the combination of blues, greens and pinks is very nice, and it goes great with navy pants or blue jeans. I had compliments when I wore it the first time and was asked where I found it. I said, "Norm Thompson, where you escape from the ordinary." The only problem is that the sleeves are a bit long on me since I'm a petite, but I just push the sleeves up to 3/4 length. The top is still pricey on sale, but its uncommon design is worth the cost.

I have seldom experienced a garment with such a sleezy fabric. Ironically I had a shirt in the same design that I bought some years ago that I have worn and worn. It is now rather worn out, So I was pleased to see the design available but so dsiappointed when it arrived. The fabric is sort of slimy and slippery. I sent it back.

Something just a little dressy. Nice to wear out in the evening. It's going to Italy!

Crazy about the wild pattern
This item is something that I have wanted for quite a while. When it was reduced in price, I jumped on it. Though it is pricey, the fabric has excellent 'hand'. I am crazy about the wild pattern and like peacocks and dragons, so I am very pleased.
The sleeves and body length are a tiny bit long as I am petite, but otherwise very comfortable. Got compliments the first time I wore the shirt.
