Anthropologie Fitting Room Reviews

It's my first time posting Anthro Fitting Room Reviews,  :-) So please be kind.

First one up is the De Chelly Dress by Maeve. I tried this in a size 2 and it fits true to size. I love the retro print and it's quite flattering. The material is a bit heavy and it's nicely lined so it's perfect for cold weather. I especially like how the straps are thick and wide.

Seaside Fields Dress by Maeve. The pretty colors attracted me to this dress. This is a size 2 and it was a bit snug. I would size up on this one. The top is made of a heavy silk material and the skirt is corduroy.

Steamed Cappuccino Cardi by Guinevere. Now on sale for $49.99. I LOVE this cardi. It comes in a size P (petite) and I tried it on in both a P and an XS. Although the P is a better fit, I ended up going with the XS as I wanted it to be a bit roomy. The back of the cardi has a neat criss cross design/ruching/gathers. The pic below is an XS. This one came home with me today.

Emerald Isle Coat by Elevenses. On sale now for $99. I know this coat is not for everyone, but I simply ADORE it. It's made of a heavy brocade material and the lining is pretty neat and funky. I don't own a brocade coat, but when I tried this on, I knew I just had to have it. I sized up on this one. My usual size 2 was a bit tight around the arms, but the size 4 fit perfect. I love the dark emerald green against the black. Plus green is my feng shui color. This was an early Christmas gift from my dear husband.

Ishtar Gate Cardigan by Lilka. This cardi was by the Sleep & Lounge section and it caught my eye as I was heading for the fitting room. It was just MEH. A pass for me.

Flutter Sleeve Tunic by Fei paired with Whipped Woolens Cardigan by Bird on a Wire . Tried tunic in a size 0, Sweater in a size S (turquoise). I thought the tunic was a bit too low cut for my tastes, but I really liked the contrasting blues on the cardigan and it just went on sale for $49.95

Ascending Roses Top by Deletta. This is a size XS. Fits true to size. I think the fleur-de-lis design makes this blouse look quite romantic. But I didn't really like how it looked on me. The material is pretty thin and sheer. I've had 2 kids, and I had to suck in my belly so you wouldn't see my lumps and bumps. But I'm sure it could look really nice on someone else.

Walkway Dress by Tracy Reese. I tried this on in a size S and it fits TTS. It just went on sale for $79.95, plus take an additional 25% off. I wasn't sure about this dress then, but at the sale price, I'm reconsidering. Pros - It is very comfortable and quite flattering (it hides my gut). Cons - it's a tad long for my tastes. ****I have a new post on this dress with more pics, check it out here

Stitched Border Sweatercoat by Guinevere. This is an XS. LOL!!! I couldn't stop laughing when I tried on this sweatercoat. I felt like a sherpa carrier! When I showed my husband, he said, "Honey, Hugh Hefner wants his bath robe back."

    Thanks for your review of the Emerald Isle coat. I've been interested in it since it went on sale, but the reviews on Anthro's site made me worry about sizing. I usually wear a 2 in coats also, and I think I'll go for it and try a 4 based on what you said about sizing up. It looks very flattering on you.
