Anthropologie Catalog | January 2011

Read Article →

Good morning everyone! HERE is Anthropologie's Janaury 2011 catalog link. The catalog is only 29 pages long and is full of mostly accessories, shoes and furniture. What do you all think? Some of the shoes are very cute, but I was really hoping for more new clothing arrivals.

Anthropologie Product Reviews | Round 2

Read Article →
Hey everyone! Here is Round 2 of the reviews! You can find Round 1 HERE.

For all of the reviews I am wearing the Civico 10 Spigi Wedge Pump and the Martingale Boots.


Here are Odille's Bianka Blouse in Raspberry and Cartonnier's Acting Out Skirt. For the Bianka Blouse, it fits TTS, but I sized down from a 2 to a 0 in this blouse to make it a little more form fitting. You can stick with your normal size or size down. I have been wanting to try this color on for awhile. I just purchased the Black Motif that briefly popped back online last week and fell in love when I put it on. I could buy this blouse in every color! It's flowy, comfortable, feminine and the v-neck is not low cut at all.

Cartonnier's Acting Out Skirt seems to be an exact replica of the Alluring Sway Skirt. This skirt fits somewhat TTS. It is stretchy so you can size down. I'm wearing a size 2 but would size down to a 0. I'm wearing the skirt in Black Motif. I love the ruched detailing and the grey/black pinstriped pattern. The length is good as it hits just at my knee.

Both wishlisted.

Here is Deletta's Volanta Tee. It fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS. I love how simple, yet beautiful this tee is. It's comfortable, lightweight and I really was drawn to the silk ribbons on the shoulder area. It's a tee that could go with so many pants, jeans and skirts. The length is good as it hits just past my hips.

Wishlisted in Beige and Purple.

Here is Eva Franco's Jacquard Missive Skirt. This skirt fits TTS. I'm wearing a size 2. I could size down to a 0 if I wanted. I've been eyeing this skirt for awhile! I really love the different colors and pattern of roses on the skirt. The front is super cute too as it is pleated and folded. The length is on the shorter side and hits me just above the knee.

Wishlisted.

I've paired it with Deletta's Volante Tee reviewed above.

Here is Edme & Esyllte's Pointedly Skirt. The skirt fits TTS. I'm wearing a 2. I honestly am not really a fan of this skirt and still am not after trying it on. I don't like how the seam runs right down the middle front of the skirt. I do like the colors, pattern and overall design of the skirt though. The material is also nice and the skirt has pockets. The length is good as it hits just below my knee.


A pass for me.

Here is One September's Fly With Me Top. This top is TTS. I'm wearing an XS. I love the flowiness of this top. It's super soft and comfortable. I also love the green color and the asymmetrical cut, being longer on the sides then in the front and back. The beaded detailing is also nice near the chest area. The top is a bit on the longer side. I never thought I would like this top before trying it on because of it being so long, but I really love it now!

Wishlisted.

Here is Stitch & Knot's Caprice Blouse. This blouse fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS. I really was drawn to the flowiness and the pinkish colored flowers. I'm wearing the Navy color. After looking at the website, you can wear it like I have to the left, untied and open, or you can tie it, like the photo below. I prefer it to be open and flowy. The arms were a little tight around the cuff of the blouse, but nothing uncomfortable. The was one of my favorites I tried on! The blouse runs a little on the long side, but I still love it.

Wishlisted.

Here is A. Maglia's Thoresby Pullover. It fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS. You can size up in this if you want. The small fit me great too. I love how lightweight, flowy and drapey the top is. I was hesitant before trying the top on, but now I really love it. The bottom part of the top and sleeves are tighter then the rest of the top, which I love since it gives the flowy top part definition. I also love the rich caramel color.

Wishlisted.

Here is C. Keer's From The Canvas V-Neck. This top fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS. I really like this top a lot. I wasn't really impressed when I saw it online, but in person, it's really nice. It's comfortable, lightweight and the perfect length. I also love how the front wraps. If you're looking for a cute sale top, this is a great one!

Wishlisted. I know, I know it's on sale, but I didn't want to buy anything yesterday! I hope this pops back.

Here is C. Keer's Main Event Tank. This tank fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS. I grabbed this top in the sale room really quick just to have a basic tank to try on some other items with. I actually really like this tank. It's lightweight and comfortable. The ruffles around the v-neck are very feminine.

Wishlisted in Dark Grey and Ivory.

Here is Guinevere's Arbor Vines Sweater Jacket. I really have been wanting to try this on, but was not impressed. This was the only one in the store and it was a return. I can see why. This is a Small, but I would size down to an XS if I were to purchase this. The jacket buttons down the front, but as you can see from the photo, the jacket would not button flat (lay flat) in the front. No matter what I did it would twist and look like the photo to the left. The sleeves are also a bit loose on me. The like the length and the material is comfortable. I also like the leave detailing around the neckline.

A pass for me.

Here is Moth's Paisley Gust Sweater Jacket. I've been wanting to try this on for months! It appeared online over the late Summer and sold out quickly! It fits pretty TTS. I'm wearing a Small since my local Anthro didn't have a XS in the Ivory. The sleeves are 3/4 length. I really love the detailing and the diagonal zipper. I think this is definitely a signature piece. I don't  really like how short it is, but I love everything else about this.

I'm wearing C. Keer's Mane Event Tank underneath the Ivory, reviewed above and Languages Oak Alley Peasant Top under the Orange reviewed above.

Here is Tabitha's Chaperoned Blazer. This blazer is super cute! It fits TTS. I'm wearing a size 2. I love the cropped length and 3/4 length sleeves. The blazer looks black, but I think it's actually a very dark navy blue. This blazer would be a perfect work piece or paired with a bright top and heels.

Wishlisted.

Here is Elevenses' Engla Trench. I never would have tried this on if it not for the Dressing Room Requests. I actually really love this jacket. The buttons are faux and don't actually button at all. You just need to zip the jacket up. It fits TTS. I'm wearing a 4 here, since it was the only small size in this jacket. I would purchase my normal size 2 in this. The length is great as it hits above the knee and the material doesn't flair out very much at the hips. The material is not too heavy and is very comfortable. One thing on the jacket I tried on is that the pockets were sewn shut. Not sure if this is how the jacket is supposed to be, but on the website it lists the jacket with having pockets.

Wishlisted.

Here is Charlie and Robin's Crimson Chevron Blazer. I have been drawn to the bright red color online since it popped up a couple weeks ago. I was a little disappointed in the fit. I'm wearing an XS. The length is good and the color is amazing in person. I also really love the pattern. As you can see in the photo, the sleeves are a bit loose and the buttons don't lie flat. The material seems a little flimsy and light and the buttons feel cheap.

A pass for me.

Here is liaMolly's Naturally Sweet Sweater. The sweater fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS, but could size up to a small. I really love the colors, material, design, EVERYTHING about this sweater. It's adorable in person. I don't like how the bottom of the sweater opened, until on the website where the sweater is completely closed.

I'm wearing Deletta's Volante Tee underneath, reviewed above.

Here is Cartonnier's Easy-Peasy Blazer. It fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS. This jacket is super comfortable! The length is perfect and the sleeves a not very loose.

Here is Capote's Caidal Top. This top fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS but could size up to a small. I love the dark wine color and the loose fit of the top. I also love how you can wear it off one shoulder. The waistband is fitted. The only thing about this is that the neckline is a bit tight, bit not tight enough to pull the top off one shoulder.

I bought this at full price.
