Anthropologie Reviews - Random Stuffs

Just a few things I tried on that didn't seem to fit with the other categories.

So here are four items that I really loved.  Would purchase any one of them on sale.  Short and sweet here (time has been such an issue lately - ugh) so the pictures will have to account for most of the reviewing. I really think that works best anyway.  :)

Skewed Pullover
Funky, quirky, great print.  I just loved this.  Not much more to say other than it fit TTS.  I keep thinking about this one when I lay in bed at night.  May have to bit even at full price ($88).

Not sure what I'd actually wear this with but it was so cute.  And soft. I loved the back.  Would probably be a good topper for dresses and long sleeved tees in the fall.

In the catalog this is shown with a large stretchy belt and I can see why.  The thin elastic waistband of this otherwise perfect silk skirt is it's downfall.  It creates some weird bunching around the waist of anyone who doesn't have a perfectly flat tummy (and that's pretty much all of us, right?).  Otherwise, the length was perfect, it was so flowy and feminine.  I love the butterfly wing look print.  With a stretchy belt and on sale (it is now $188 - ouch) I may reconsider.

Lapel Skirt
This skirt actually came home with me but then went right back to the store.  It is seriously very cute.  The print is little orange and white apples.  I love the folded down look of the waist.  But I just felt it widened my hips a bit to much.  And maybe the $88 price tag gave me buyer's remorse, I don't know, but I just felt I had to return it.  My husband loved it though - oddly enough.  Runs true to size and is made of a men's dress shirt quality cotton.  If it goes on sale, it may come home again. 


  1. Cute pullover, looks super comfortable!

  2. I LOVE THE FIRST TOP!!! I have a couple of sweaters like that and love them. :)

  3. Love, love, love the polka dot pullover top on you. So cute!

  4. I love the skewed pullover too! So chic, but relaxing...looks great on you.

  5. Thanks for all of the reviews:) I agree with everyone else - the skewed pullover is a winner! Love it.

  6. The Pullover is perfect for you. Get it! I'm such an enabler. If I could wear comfy cosy over sized tops as easily as you I would be all over them.

    Love the Lapel Skirt. But wait, you don't have wide hips? It certainly is flattering from the side view. Maybe it's those trick Mirrors again. The few times I've shopped in an Anthro, I got home only to find that the slimming Trick mirrors had did their job on me. I still have a few items in my closet that I never wore again.

  7. I was just on the Anthro site looking at the pullover and then saw your post. It's really cute.

  8. i love that patchwork skirt! and the pullover looks great on you!
