    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.

    Had to have it in TWO colors!
    I first saw this online and loved the pink color. By the time I finally got to one of my Anthro stores the only size left in pink was a S. Since most Anthro tops run small I usually buy mediums, but I have a few small and extra-smalls in my closet, so I tried the small on. Many reviews I'd read said it ran big and the sleeves were long. They were right. Altho I loved the length in the front, it was really full in back and I had to turn up the sleeves several times. But I wanted it so much I bought the small and ordered the XS before I left. When the XS arrived I could see it was a better fit, altho I had to get used to it being shorter in front, the way it fits the model in the photo. The sleeves fit right at my wrist and the back no longer looked like a billowing sail. Of course, when I went back to my store to return the Small, I came home with the blue one (also an XS)!! The blue is a lovely shade of sky. A cami might be worn right now for warmth, but isn't needed, as these are not see-through. Should be pretty in spring with white skinny pants. I plan on wearing them casually with skinny jeans, then dressing them up for an evening out.

    The gold color is beautiful
    I bought this shirt in gold with the scarf pictured and it looks great. The loose fit of this shirt worked for me because I am trying to hide the last few pounds of my last pregnancy.

    I bought three different dresses on line--and this one was on the verge of being cut, but I bought it anyway. The pictures do NOT do this pretty dress justice. Every once in a while you find something that you absolutely love--for me, this was it. Can't believe I almost passed it up! It's slightly vintage--but NOT matronly at all. It's a beautiful print, fits at the TRUE waist and is flowy--but NOT poufy, just the right length and completely flattering. It's simply a homerun. I've tried it on with boleros/ fitted short red cardi/ chunky necklaces/ boots/ red heels with black tights/ red tights with black heels. In love. If you are busty or thick armed--you may want to size up. My usual size 6 was great (I'm a 36C)--but if I was bustier, I would've had to size up.

    Feminine Floral
    This floral dress is stunning in person. I fell in love with it the moment I tried it on... and every time I wear it, I receive loads of compliments. It's the perfect match of vintage and modern with the feminine shape and the vibrant print. I believe this dress runs true to size, but I would be mindful of the sleeves. The fabric is certainly forgiving, but the sleeves don't have much room. You can wear this on its own or belt it with an open cardigan. Both gorgeous looks. Highly recommend.

    Gorgeous design but too expensive for the quality
    I LOVE this dress and couldn't wait for it to arrive from backorder. The vintage style and fit feel so ladylike. In addition, the dress is super comfortable and I couldn't stop twirling around in it. I can imagine wearing it to a wedding, brunch, or to work in my classroom. Since the fabric is stretchy, it accommodates an hourglass figure well. Despite my height and a 34DD bust, the size 8 fit me perfectly. However, even with a promotional code, I still found the dress to be overpriced. The material has me seriously debating how well the dress will hold up over time. Aside from the gorgeous design, it just doesn't have that Anthro quality I've come to expect. If the dress were half as much, I'd have no hesitation. As it is, I'm seriously debating returning it and crossing my fingers for a sale.

    ballerina party skirt perfection
    I am so excited to wear this skirt to a wedding this weekend!! With some help from a few of the Anthro associates, I paired it with a gorgeous pale pink top with appliqued faux-feathers on the front (I can't find it on the website... but it was in the store) and the Claudine belt. The skirt is so comfortable with the wide elastic waist band - it looks great with t-shirts too! It fits true to size - I'm typically a 4/6 or Medium at Anthropologie and while the small would've worked, the medium was more comfortable and still hugged my waist. The tulle fabric does snag easily, so avoid rings/studded bracelets/pets.

    Whimsical & Romantic
    Part ballerina, part Carrie Bradshaw, this skirt can double as both sweet and sassy. The slip is knee length with several layers of midi length black tulle. The skirt resembles a grown up tutu, and is quite sophisticated and romantic. It’s not terribly poofy, which makes it more wearable for a variety of occasions. The waistband looks fine exposed, but it will be easy to cover with a belt for a different look. I am wearing a large here, the largest size this skirt comes in. I wear a size 18 in pants, though I can size down to a 12 if the skirt has free hips and only has to fit my waist. I think this skirt could accommodate ladies up to a size 20 on bottom. The tulle was quite static-y in the fitting room. Once I got it home, I steamed out the wrinkles by hanging it in the bathroom while I showered. That seemed to take the static out of it, and it lies perfectly now. The static could also be fixed by anti-cling spray from your local grocery store. This fabric will snag easily. I had to take off a stack of bracelets I was wearing, as they kept snagging on the fabric. It didn't rip, though! I plan to wear this to holiday parties and dress it down with a chambray top and booties.

    Feminine poof!
    I have the grey Grecco tulle skirt from a few seasons ago and I love it so much I was hoping Anthro would bring it back iin new colors. I wasn't going to try a different designer but when I passed this in the store I spun around and grabbed it! It's SO nice in person! Just the right amount of poof, well made, and does not look cheap or too young (as some tulle skirts tend to do). It's very elegant and a pleasant surprise. Even the price was better than I expected.

    All too cute!
    It's impossible to budget when I check out Anthropologie online! Even less so when my sweet personal shopper (and it makes me laugh aloud to think that I actually have a personal shopper!!!) e-mails me to alert me that the top I crave is in-store. This is one of those tops that is classic Anthro from the easy fit to all of those little extra touches: the fabric trimmed snap placket, the cross stitching on the front pockets, the fact this tee even has pockets! I love the longer length and forgiving empire waist; some may find the fit a little large but as I like my tees a little loose(and able to withstand a bit of shrinkage), I call it true-to-size. I would have liked the snaps to close a bit higher as the front opening is much too low to wear without an undershirt or cammy but no matter--it's cold enough in Canada! The range of colours is fantastic; I bought the navy and am going back for the red!

    Simply Adorable
    I have been eying up this cute top online for sometime now. I was in my local Anthropologie store today and there it was, staring me straight in the eye. I plucked up the purple one thinking ahead to this spring and summer, took my normal size medium into the fitting room, and as I looked at it on me, I thought ding, ding, ding. This top is darling looking at it online and even more adorable in person. It fit TTS if not a tad bigger. Even though I am petite, 5'1" 110 lbs (my store unfortunately does not carry petites), I like the regular as it covers my buttocks quite well. The only problem I have with it though is that the v-neck is a bit too low for me without wearing a tank underneath. It gives the illusion that it can be buttoned up more, but it can't. I will more than likely though go back for either the dark blue or red one as well.

    Cute, unique style!
    I purchased this top in teal. Absolutely cute. I am for sure going back for more!!! It is a perfect fit, not one of those skin tight, worry about shrinkage tops. I am 5' 5", 36B, 128lbs, and purchased a small. Go ahead, splurge. You won't regret it.

    A unique top
    Viewing this top online it looked black to me (although it says blue motif), so I didn't take much notice. Saw it in the store & it's a navy print w/ a very pretty multi-color embroidery detailing. At 5'3", 119#, 36B-C,,my usual size in tops is a small or 4/6 This brand always runs snug in the shoulders for me & the store was out of the size 4, so tried on the 6. The arms are a little big on me, but pretty much as in the pic. I think I can get past that since maybe it's just me. The hemline is straight & length is just past my hips. Has pockets & didn't know until I tried it on! It really is a cute look & of course will go with many color variations of pants, jeans or cord skinnys/leggings. Will probably really stand out paired with white jeans or shorts when the weather gets much warmer. Maybe even a jean skirt!

    Pretty Perfect
    This is a top that I never would've looked twice at online. In fact, I never noticed it online but stopped when I saw it at my local Anthro. As others stated, it is navy rather than black and looks much better in person. What really sets it off is the embroidery at the bottom--it makes the whole top. And, unlike many of these types of tops in recent seasons, this top is long enough in length to not feel incredibly boxy. Don't rely on the online pictures; take our word for it that it's that much better in person.

    Very cute!
    I agree....this is a good one :-) I ordered online and went with the 2..(I'm typically a 2 in Holding Horses:2-4 in general)..and it fit fine. I have issues with shoulders being too big at times and so going with a 2 worked for me in this case. I'm 5'3..34C..124, and I think if I had a larger chest it would be a bit tight. Length is great, comes well past my hips. Fitted some up top and then flows out nicely. The sleeves hit me in the same place and the model pics. The colors and detail are beautiful! Keeper :-)

    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
    I love this dress. The design is adorable with chevron navy stripes and a multi-colored inset at the waist. It fits true to size. I have a smaller bust and waist, so this was a great style, fitted up top, but slightly flared below the waist. Those with a fuller bust may need to size up in this dress, as there isn't any stretch. The waist hit at my actual waist and the skirt fell just above my knee. (I'm 5"1, so no need for a petite.) The skirt was a bit poofy below the waist, but that was the only negative I could think of. The material is thick and substantial but not bulky. A very versatile and super cute dress.

    Adorable structured dress
    First thing to know is that this dress runs small. You will definitely need to size up and put it on over your head vs stepping into it. I bought this at the store and they told me everyone has said the same thing. However, once you get in the right size this is an adorable dress. It's very structured and a heavier (but not too heavy) material so it lays really nice/flat vs overly poofy. Another great Maeve dress in my opinion!
