Anthro Fitting Room Reviews!

I stopped by Anthro on Tuesday, convenient for me, the markdown day! I was really dying to try on the Grasslands Dress and boy was it a big let down! Oh well......I still had some gift certificate $$ to spend, so I ended up with a top and dress.

First I tried the new Landmarks Jacket in white. I liked it, but not LOVED it. Maybe the sage would have been better. I still really want a tan jacket and a cargo coat, so I think I will pass on this one. It fits true to size and it is tailored very nicely. My daughter just reminded me I have a jacket like this - haha - now that I look at it I do! It is a Merona 3/4 sleeve from last year that I got for a whopping $12!
The Natty Blazer - OK love! Didn't even know it existed, but it's awfully close to my Flipside Blazer, so unless I find a great sale, I will pass. The photo shows me in a large and it was too big. They didn't have a medium. It's soooo, sooo comfy! I could wear it constantly in spring!

Oh great I wanted this Grasslands Dress! I so loved it online! I thought I could wear a cardi over it and make the skinny straps work, but alas, it is cut too low, so no go. I love the bottom ruffles - so girly and would look darling with cowgirl boots!

The Fireside Cardigan was a lucky sale find but I'm kind of tuckered out on thick cardigans and Spring is just around the corner, so none for me. I liked it a lot though and it was very comfy!

I missed the Wavelet, bought and returned the Ice-Capped (because it was dry clean only- I don't wear dry-clean only) and then found this baby, Partly Cloudy! It is machine washable and has the same feminine, detailed effects I loved of the Ice-Capped so this baby was SOLD!! Thank you! Can't wait to wear it.
Traced Denim Dress (see Roxy's review at the link). Hello perfectly tailored, classic, classy denim dress! I can wear you every single Wednesday night to church for the rest of my life! I have been looking for you for about 10 years now and we finally meet! Another score - it was on super sale, then I used my bday 15% off for a fab deal! Denim dresses are so in this spring and this dress is so versatile. You can dress it up or down, add layers in fall & winter, possibilities are endless. Looks pulled together with little effort!
Ruffles Everywhere Tunic. This shirt just did nothing for me!
Love this tank - love. Circled Adornments Tank. I want it to be on sale now! Hopefully it will still be there when sale strikes!
This was my own Anthro cardigan over it - I wish I knew the name of it! It is lightweight cotton and so great with so many things.


  1. Your comment on the denim dress made me literally LOL. I'll bet you are the cutest mom at church! I'm glad you commented on my blog, so that I could find your blog - love it!
