    I thought that I had found a pair of jeans that I loved when I found the Abercrombie jeans 5 years ago. They fit nice, albeit a little tight in the legs, but were very soft and comfortable. But now that I've essentially outgrown their demographic, I thought I'd try a new pair of jeans. I've been wearing the pilco stet's for a while, and they were nice (and 19.95 in clearance!) but they weren't a perfect fit. So I tried some ag jeans on in store the other day, only I wasn't ready to pay 213$ for them. So when I found this pair in clearance, I was over joyed! They fit perfectly, which is amazing seeing as if jeans fit my legs, they are always too loose in the waist (years of being a back catcher made my thighs slightly disproportionally thick). These jeans wash up amazingly, and they don't stretch out. I'm not usually one to wear jeans multiple times before washing, but I was running late and threw these on, and they looked as good on day two as they did day one. I can't wait to run out and grab another pair. I would highly recommend these jeans!

    A closet staple
    I have often favored other brands of high end jeans (always on sale!), but had never tried on AG jeans until one day when I was perusing the Anthro sale room and stumbled across some. I have been on the hunt for a "normal" wash pair of AG jeans on sale ever since. I am slender and moderately tall (5'7'), but have a rounder rear. These jeans (in Landing) hug my figure without lookiing or feeling too tight. Length is typically a problem for me too; I have a pretty long waist which means sometimes full-length jeans are a bit longer on me than I prefer. These hit right where they should and also look great cuffed as well. They're also lightweight enough to wear throughout most of the year, even in my midwest/south region. Like another reviewer, I would put an asterick on the 5 star rating due to the price (though the sale price helps).

    Perfect for petites!
    Thank you Anthro and AG for offering the classic Stevie in petite sizes! I love the regular Stevie cut but have always had to scrunch and roll up the hem so during the recent free shipping promotion, I ordered the petite version in both grey and blue in 25P (I'm usually a size 25), thinking I would try them on for size but keep only one pair given the high price. The fit is so perfect and flattering, and it's so hard to find such well fitting jeans, I decided to splurge and keep both pairs. I've already worn them both multiple times so I think they're a good investment in keeping with typical AG quality. Fellow petites, these trump the Stevie Ankle! I believe they're a genuine petite cut - not only is the hem shorter but the overall fit is tailored down and slimmer at the knee and opening. I'm 5'2" so these may be a tad short for taller petites. Note that the blue color way feels softer than the grey, but the grey is also a perfect neutral. Highly recommend these jeans and only wish that Anthro carried petite sizes in stores so that other petites could try them on.

    Great Basic!
    I saw this top on-line and I decided I had to have it! I wanted to try it on because in tops that run a little more baggy, I tend to size down. I'm between a small and medium and I went with the small in this top. I wear a 34D, 27 waist and usually an 8 in pants. Also, I was worried that if I went with the small it would be too small around my hip/butt area since it's pretty long and that it might be tight in the arms too but it wasn't at all! Also this is a great lightweight tee without being paper thin and hole/snag prone. It seems to be a great quality item. I bought two and plan to pick up a couple more colors in the near future!

    Great basic. Buy two.
    I got this in Dark Blue with the intention of wearing it under a long cardigan. It looks great with that, and alone. Easy-stylish... throw on with a necklace and skinnies, or leggings. It's a nice medium weight (not too heavy/thick, not too thin/sheer)...Fabric is soft, with a bit of dressiness to it (so it's not just a cotton basic). /Neckline is flattering shape, but not too high or too low. I appreciate that the sleeves are not 3/4 length-- full length is difficult to find these days. Garment is well made and worth the price (although the price is not insane, so that's a good thing). I wish it was maybe an inch or two shorter, but I also like it as-is just fine, too, where I still want a 2nd color and will probably get one soon. You might want to consider petite size if 5'4." I usually have issues finding tops that are long enough with a long torso, so I'm not going to complain! This is definitely a tunic length, though, just for reference. I'm 5'6", 34A, 125, no hips, but a bit of tummy fluff(which doesn't show in this top). I most often wear a Small, but I sometimes go between either S or XS, depending on the brand and cut. XS is still flowy enough on me, but the amount of fabric on the small was just fine too-- wasn't overwhelming and didn't feel like I was drowning. The XS was my preference because of where the shoulder stitches hit.

    Perfect with Leggings
    I have been looking for a long tunic with some shape to wear with leggings for a long time, and I was thrilled when I found this one. I got it in the red initially and then ordered it in the navy as well. Soft and good quality, this is a great fitting staple.

    Love this dress!
    I was searching for a dress to wear to a wedding. I saw this dress on the rack and didn't think it would look good on me because of the thick material and pattern so I didn't bother trying it on. While I was trying on other dresses in the dressing room, I explained to the salesperson that none of the dresses I tried on were working out. She pulled some dresses and this dress was one of them. I was skeptical at first, but once I had it on I loved it. The cut is flattering and the thick material is a little more forgiving if you're trying to hide a few extra pounds. Additionally, the design of the dress helps cinch everything in. The hidden pockets are an added bonus. The design at the waist adds a whimsical touch. I do agree with other reviewers regarding the zipper. The zipper doesn't go far enough down if you're trying to step into the dress and have any hips. Other than the zipper issue, the dress is perfect. I'm so glad the salesperson pulled it for me because I would have never chosen it for myself. Dress was true to size. I'm 5'1 and 125 lbs with a small bust.

    Love this Dress - Well Made!
    I picked up this dress in size 8 and it fits so nice, well made compared to other Anthro dresses I have observed over the past year or so. The fabric is nice medium weight cotton blend twill and holds its shape, a plus it is lined and true to size based on other Anthro dresses of the past that were a size 8 - for my frame. I do find the front is a little low and the crack of my chest shows, so for me, for work, I will need to wear a think navy blue cami. Another plus is the pockets and they are positioned in the right place for me. The attached belt panel is a nice varied shades of pink, purple and orange stripes which would be a nice compliment to a colored shoe in those shades. I normally don't buy full prices Anthro clothes for the next season before the season starts, but with the dress promo and the fact this dress is well made and compared to other priced dresses elsewhere this was a win win purchase. I am 34DD chest, 140 pounds and 5'4 inches in height and the 8 fit perfectly. the length on me was about the length on the model but not so shortI would feel uncomfortable for work wear.

    Beautiful, great quality dress..with pockets!!!
    adorable, lined dress that fits true to size. as some of the other reviewers have noted, it is a little tricky to get it over your hips but, once on, it fit perfectly. very flattering. Love the detail to the waist and pockets are always a nice touch. I have large bust and hourglass figure and the 4 fit great...thought about how the 2 might fit as the size 4 a little big in the waist but am happy overall with the sizing. Pretty snug in the bust so the 2 would probably have me too busty

    Easy, flattering dress
    I had my eye on this after seeing it in the catalog and tried it on as soon as it came to my store. It is just what it looks like--an easy, comfy, flattering dress. The shape is unusual enough to make it interesting and the pattern is cute. I thought I would like the check/windowpane pattern more from the pictures, but I found the chevron stripe pattern more flattering on. It does run quite big, so I sized down (I am usually an 8/10 and got a small). There is more than enough room and the style is very forgiving. It is also fully lined which further eliminates any clinginess and gives the fabric a beautiful drape. I will get a lot of wear out of this--with leggings and boots in fall/winter and sandals in summer. It is also a little longer than I thought it would be, which is a nice surprise since a lot of Anthro's styles recently have been quite short on me (I'm 5'7). This hits at the perfect spot for a longer tunic and won't be too short with bare legs in summer. Overall, love it! (FD: I'm an employee of URBN, Inc.)

    Flattering, super comfy and versatile!
    I love this dress although because i am 5'11 and 42 years old, i only wear it as a tunic. i bought the black and white window pane pattern and have worn it TONS. this dress is so versatile! i wear it: - in cooler weather with a long sleeve, more fitted shirt underneath with a scarf, skinny jeans and boots - over a midi pencil skirt - in warmer weather with cropped leggings and sandals its so flattering and comfortable and the dress is lined with super soft fabric so it feels substantial and not thin or flimsy.

    Easy Wear
    This little dress is an easy relaxed fun dress to throw on with some sandals . I bought this in a medium and the fit is great. I usually wear a 10-12 top and an 8 bottom. This medium is ample enough on the top and perfect on the bottom. I purchased this dress in the white chevron pattern and I love this so much I am ordering it in the black and white window pane pattern. I am 66 years old and I look for comfort and style…this is it! The quality is great also. Great little dress for the price point!

    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.

    Petites run very short-waisted
    I first fell in love with this dress in the catalog shot and tried on my usual size 2 in store, but it was clearly too big in the bust and long in the shoulders. This problem is typical for me as a petite--5'2", straight and athletic figure--so I ordered the 2P. Unfortunately, the petite size is tight in the waist (where I'm proportionally larger) and noticeably short-waisted. I actually am short-waisted myself, albeit with a long torso, but the petite dress's waistline hit above my high natural waist. Combined with the shorter length, it felt childish and babydoll-like. To get the right fit I'd have to purchase the size 2 and get it professionally altered, so I'll wait for sale. A few other notes about the dress itself: every dress has a slightly different pattern layout, and in most of them the dot centered on the v-neck is NOT centered (i.e. like the model shots but not like the perfect catalog shot). Also, there are pockets hidden in the front where the two different pattterns meet in the skirt, not on the side seam as I initially expected.

    I have a full hour glass figure and sometimes it's difficult to find something that will flatter that. This dress is PERFECT on me! It defines my waist and flares out nicely to accent my curvy hips. I know some reviews said it runs big, but I got my usual size 10 and it fit wonderfully. I love the way they mixed the patterns and how they placed them on the dress. It's not overwhelming at all, and I think the v-neck helps break it up a bit. Also, the length is spot on for me, I'm 5'5" and it hits about an inch above the knee. I plan on wearing it to a graduation with wedges, and then a little more casually to a bridal shower during the summer with sandals. I can't wait to wear this!

    Adorable dress
    I purchased this in store in a size 2. This is my usual dress size (5'4" 125lbs 34B). This hits at my knee and is not too tight on the bust/waist. The front is cut low enough to be flattering, but is still work appropriate. The fabric is a crisp cotton. This dress has a burgundy lining with black scallop threading trim and front pockets. This has the right amount of full skirt (not too big). I can see this easily working in warmer weather as the fabric is light weight. I wore it with a black cropped cardigan, black tights and boots today in the dead of winter, so I can see getting a lot of use out of this dress. Love how the pattern looks on the sides of the dress. Hope they make this dress in a lot of different patterns.

    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!

    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.
