    Don't let this one get away
    I had no intention of buying this dress at full price - but I shouldn't have tried it on. It fits really well! I like the unique styling on the top - how it covers your shoulders rather than just being a "tank-styled" top. The style of the top was a little different on all size S in my store - the center piece of the bodice was mainly navy with a small green spot or spots. It didn't bother me too much though. At 5'5", the regular length will require that I wear heels, which is unfortunate, but I think the P would be too short if it's "perfect" for one of the other reviewers, who is 5'3". The empire waist of this dress hides a few sins, without being frumpy and without looking like it's doing any hiding. There is a nice flow to the skirt. The lining only comes to my knees - which was a little distracting but not enough to dissuade me from purchasing the dress. The colors are very vibrant - and I think this dress looks way better in person than it does on the model (and how many times can you say that??). The fact that the dress is washable was a must in my book - hopefully it holds up in the gentle cycle.

    My Favorite Maxi Dress
    I adored this dress from the first moment I saw it online, but held off because of the price. Once I saw the spring dress sale, I jumped online and ordered it right away. Unfortunately by the time I ordered, the petite sizes were sold out. After reading the other reviews, I knew the regular sizing would be a little too long, but I went ahead and ordered the Regular XS. I'm 5'3" and 120 lbs and the Regular XS fits perfectly other than the length. I'll probably get 3/4 inches hemmed so I can wear it with flat sandals, but I don't regret the purchase one bit. The pattern is more vibrant in person, which I love. The dress is flowy, amazingly soft and incredibly well-made. The shape & cut could not be more flattering. Great purchase, especially if the petite sizes come back in stock.

    Beautiful maxi!
    lovely print in a very slimming design. The panel at the top is essential to keep from being overexposed. Fit is TTS and the length is a bit longer than I expected. I'm 5'2" and the XXSP just touches the floor, so I will need a small heel. The pattern does not match up at the sides, but it's fairly close, and close enough to not be obvious. The waist band slims the bodice and makes the dress look so sleek. Jersey fabric is very stretchy so you may be able to size down if you are small busted. I think any body type could wear this and look fantastic.

    Cute but not super flattering
    This is a dress I never would have given a second look. However, with so many good reviews I decided to give it a go. Sadly it arrived without the slip that so many said it has and it was super wrinkled and 'used' looking?? ...odd. But I had the perfect slip to pair it with and I loved it despite it's sad arrival. I am 5ft 7in and 150lbs and the small fit great but is big- thats that look though (I am normally a small in dresses). I could probably size down to a XS. If you have large upper arms, you might have trouble. If they are average to small, you will be fine. I personally do not think that this dress is super flattering, however, it's not NOT flattering either. It does look good with a belt but you have to watch the pockets like other reviewers have said. The fabric is light and flow-y and so this dress will be great for spring as well as winter (when paired with tights). It's just so comfortable! It's like wearing your flannel sheets, but in a good way.

    Beautiful soft and flowy
    this is an amazing dress! very soft and airy. I was concerned because ithe description said "flannel", which is not the traditional flannel. This dress is so soft and light, it can be an all season dress, based on where you live. I'm in CA, so this dress is perfect!!! for reference I ordered the P M and I'm 5.2 135 lbs.

    Love it (unexpectedly)!
    I didn't think this dress would work for me--I thought it might make me look big because it doesn't have a defined waist. But, I loooooooooooove it! It doesn't make me look big at all. It's great for work or home. It's really comfortable. If you really want a defined waist you can add a belt. It's really the perfect dress. I did have to size down from my usual size though.

    Beautiful Jacket
    I ordered this jacket online. Ordering things online is super stressful for me, but this jacket is truly beautiful. It looks like real leather, feels like leather, sounds like leather. It's soft to the touch and stylish. The perfect weight for a spring day. I am only disappointed that I couldn't order the petite medium instead of reg medium as the length would've been more appropriate for me. Nevertheless, I'm in love with this piece. I would like to mention though, I find it surprising that only one other reviewer said anything about the wiring in the jacket. Like the other reviewer, I too am concerned about how this will hold up over time... Also, I don't think the jacket runs small. It's true that the arms are a bit tight, but nothing severe. I wish I would've ordered the small instead. Today I am wearing a long-sleeve collared shirt under a pull over sweater, and the jacket fits just fine, albeit a bit snugly through the arms. Anyway... there's my two cents! Hope it helps some of you prospective buyers. :)

    Just as good as everyone says
    As other reviewers have pointed out, this is a terrific vegan leather jacket. It's soft and supple, but with enough shape that it doesn't seem obviously fake. Some of that structure comes from wires that have been inserted into the collar and cuffs (like wired ribbon). They can be a little tricky to adjust, but they allow you to stand the collar up and keep the cuffs folded back. All the details are teriffic. Sadly, I have to return it because I was sized out. Usually a Medium (dress size 8), my broader shoulders and larger bust didn't work with this jacket, even when I sized up to a Large. XL was already sold out when I placed my order. I'm pretty sure that would have fit—i.e. going up TWO sizes. People have written that the sleeves are tight; I think it's actually that it's cut narrow through the shoulders. If that is your body type, go for it! PS My jacket arrived pretty wrinkled. I put it on a hanger for a few days but the wrinkles didn't come out. Who the heck knows how you'd get wrinkles out of this fabric.

    Gorgeous jacket, perfect fit
    Like another reviewer I've been looking for a great moto jacket for years, and fell in love with this one immediately. The detailing is great and the vegan leather looks absolutely real. I love the detail of the lining so you can roll the cuffs a bit and it looks great with that too. The pics online look very shiny, but in reality it's matte looking. Well worth the affordable price for a piece like this one. For reference I am 5:6", 125 and usually wear a 4 in anthro. The small fits perfectly, though I wouldn't be able to wear a bulky sweater underneath.

    love but..
    I have been eyeing up this top for awhile and I'm on a trip and was able to make it to an anthro store to try it on. I absolutely love this top I bought a medium I'm 145p 5"6" and i could have probably fit a small but I think it's supposed to fit loosely. My only problem is this top was $10 more in store than it was online and I didn't notice until coming here to write a review. Now I wish I ordered online.

    So many compliments!
    I saw this in the store and decided to try it on. I needed some casual everyday tops. It was super cute on! I received 3 compliments in one day from strangers. Family and friends loved it, too! Definitely a great buy! Fit me true to size.

    so different, super cute!
    I can see what everyone else is saying about it running large and about how the bottom is a little small, but I sized down and I love it! The design is so unique and it is really comfortable.

    Exactly as described
    I purchased this top in the wine color. I'm a 36B. I purchased the medium. It fits great & is flattering. The v-neck comes down just a tiny bit too far to wear this in a business casual setting without a cami underneath (just an opinion). Also, the tab sleeves are optional & can be undone. The sleeve length is a regular long sleeve & does not stop short of the wrist (THANK YOU). It is versatile & goes with trousers too! I tried it with my navy "boyfriend" trousers & it looks super cute tucked in sort of carelessly and worn with some suede booties. I plan to hand wash this garment because it is definitely flimsy, but since there is nothing like it in my closet I'll take good care of it & should have it for awhile. Bonus: It makes "the girls" look very nice, too! I am impressed & would recommend this shirt. You have to sort of play it up a little & do a little strategic tuck here & there. It is fun!

    Just gorgeous!
    I got this in the wine color. Fits well, and I get a lot of compliments on this shirt!

    Perfect
    I really love this top - rarely do a I give a full 5 stars across the board to anything b/c unfortunately, I manage to find fault with just about every article of clothing! (the buttons are wrong, the length is wrong, etc.) Not this one! 1. It comes in petite - thank you Anthro for providing so many petite options to us shorter gals 2. the colors (I got the black and blue) are stunning 3. the pattern is pretty, flattering - feminine but also graphic 4. the material is FAB - not wrinkly or stiff too thick or too thin. Basically, I love this top so much I am about to order the red one.

    love it so much! buying a second for when it wears
    this skirt is beautiful!! it's so much prettier than this picture makes it out to be. you can wear it with anything... an oversized blouse tucked in front or a crop top. that said, the material is unfortunate. the first day that i wore this skirt it got two holes... one from each strap of my backpack. i live in co and we got one of our classic 80 degree days in early march, so naturally i this was the first piece that i pulled from my closet. i walked up the hill to campus and upon getting to class i couldn't get my backpack off. each strap had snagged the skirt and it would have destroyed it if i just tried to force it out. i went to the bathroom to gently separate the skirt and backpack and it came out with minimal damage... post-scissor touch up it was fine. i'll still wear it for as long as possibly given that it's gorgeous and hugs my body perfectly, but i was disappointed in the material. not enough to not own it, but i wish i had known how fragile it was beforehand... i would have been more careful when i wore it.

    As soon as I saw this maxi skirt I knew it would be mine. It is everything I expected it to be and more. Love everything about it! The colors, the pattern, and the slightly gilded stretch waistband is just dreamy! The fabric has a nice weighty feel and it is completely lined top to bottom, not just to the knee like some maxis. Perfect for every season! I like that there is some width and fullness to the bottom which makes walking in it a breeze. I wear it just slightly below my natural waist sitting on the hips. I am 5' 8" and the length is perfect to wear with flats or heels. I've worn this skirt with a denim shirt, navy hi lo sweater, a cream colored silk blouse and grey t shirt - so versatile! This beautiful skirt feels so good on and is an awesome addition to my wardrobe. With boots or sandals it's my go-to piece for any occasion.

    gorgeous maxi skirt
    Beautiful, flattering maxi skirt. Love the pattern, but totally agree with the previous reviewers who say that the patterns do not line up... you definitely need to compare multiple skirts to pick the best pattern placement!!! Will look so pretty with just a simple black top or jean jacket. Also the wide elastic waistband is so comfy!

    Rae Pintuck
    Fell in love with this when I saw it in the store. Nice summer weight fabric, pretty pintuck detailing very soft and flowy. There is a placket behind the buttons so there is no need to wear a tank underneath. The sizing seemed small at first, but it turns out that the sizing is just inconsistent. I usually wear an XS, and ordered an XS. The one that arrived was extremely narrow in the shoulders, almost like a child's top. I traded it at the retail store for an XS that fit perfectly. Still, it may be advisable to size up for most people. It comes with a tie belt not shown (same fabric). The back is much longer than the front, so much so that it seems a little odd, and I may get this altered. This top is great worn alone, and super layered under a cardigan or long vest. I think it is worth the price point.

    Exactly as pictured, very versatile!
    I love this tunic! I purchased it in the navy but now I'm thinking I might get the ivory one too! I'm a 36B with broad shoulders & smaller size waist (built like a swimmer). I purchased the medium & it fits true to size. The sleeves are a slub knit fabric & the taps are optional. The sleeves are regular length when they are not "tabbed," making this one of my favorite things about the shirt! It is *very* long in the back (covers the bum) & can be worn with skinny or straight jeans or leggings. I think if you went with a flared or boyfriend style, there'd be too much fabric going on. This tunic is flattering & comes with a removable sash that's about 1" wide & also navy. This shirt hangs nicely & is versatile: I feel like with leggings, I'd fit in with yoga moms, or with skinny jeans, I'd be fine going out to a nice dinner.

    a perfect spring/summer staple
    i LOVE this tunic with a passion. it's so simple but beautiful in the details. you can wear it long and loose or tied with the little tie belt it comes with. it's slim enough to fit under a light weight spring jacket, looks great with bright or neutral jewelry. the length is perfect for skinny jeans and will look super cute with shorts in the summer months. i'm 5'11 with a 36B bust and the M is a perfect fit.
