    I am so excited about this dress! It is stunning in person- the colors are just gorgeous and the pattern is adorable. I'd say the pictures on the website are very accurate. I was worried the sleeves would be a bit much but they actually look great when the dress is on. Love that the material is corduroy- very warm and comfortable- and being corduroy it makes it more casual so thicker tights and boots looked great! I would say definitely order based on your bust size because there is is plenty of room for larger hips and backside :) (I'm a size larger on bottom than top so I was very happy about this!) At 5'2 I tried the regular and the petite and went with the petite size. The only slight issue was the slit in the front is pretty low and does show cleavage. Not enough for it to be inappropriate for me because I am not large chested but just something to be aware of if you don't like showing a little skin or have a larger chest.

    Fun fall dress with nice details!
    I tried this on in a regular size 4. For reference, I am 5'1'' and 118 lbs and usually a size 4P or SP. The regular 4 fit me in the waist and the length was alright, but it was a bit loose in the top portion (and gapped a bit at the neck), so I think I will be purchasing in petite sizing. I'd say overall it runs TTS. This dress is very fun. It came to just about my knees. It flares out at the bottom, and the tie at the waist provides a defined waist, so the overall look is very flattering. I love the sequin detail at the sleeve, and surprisingly, the cap sleeve does not make my shoulders or arms appear bigger than they are. The dress is very well-made in a thick corduroy, and the colors of the pattern are rich and gorgeous. I love the littles birds on it. The neckline is quite low- I may want to wear a cami underneath. Overall, this is another great anthro dress! It will look great with boots all winter long!!

    Beautiful fit, beautiful design
    I had been eyeing this dress since it first hit the Anthro store. I waited until there was a 25% sale and tried on a regular size 2. I am about 5 feet, 108 pounds and found the size 2 was okay but gaped a bit in the top because I am thinner on top. I exchanged it for a regular size 0 instead and it fit beautifully. The beaded sleeves in particular fit so much better on the smaller size. It was a perfect fit for me including length and I did not have to go into the petite size.(which they did not have in the store anyways). I have received so many compliments on this dress ever since I bought it. I have worn it to more dressed up events and have dressed it down with a cardigan for work. It is truly a stunning dress.

    Cozy but arms are short
    First: I love this sweater. According to the size guide, I should have ordered a medium but my arms are long so I ordered a large. It fits PERFECTLY in the arms, and if I'd gotten a medium, I would have exchanged it for a large in the end because the arms on the large are *just* the perfect length. I won't be throwing this sweater in the wash at all. It will have to be a dry cleaning garment, which is fine with me. It's worth it. The sweater goes with EVERYTHING. It doesn't look as tailored on me as it does on the model in the online pics, but that's because I had to order up a size. I haven't taken it off since I received it a week ago, and though it has some pilling, it's nothing a sweater comb or sweater stone can't fix right away. Since I purchased the sweater on sale, I'm ECSTATIC about it. I am not sure I'd be able to pony up more than $100, but it is definitely worth that much. I have received endless compliments on it. I thought all the other reviews just couldn't be real. But they are. It's the perfect catch-all. It looks beautiful with everything and yesterday I wore with with brown boots in the day and black boots at night. So convenient!

    Perfect sweatercoat
    I've owned this sweatercoat for about 3 weeks now and have worn it at least 2-3 times each week. It's absolutely perfect and the neutral shades go with just about anything. Also, the fit is very flattering. I typically buy more bright prints, but I feel in love with this when I saw it online. The weight is perfect for Texas weather. I can see myself being able to wear this through most of the winter. For reference, I bought a MP because of my height (5'1''). If I would tried it on in the store I probably could have gotten away with the regular M. I almost think the sleeves are too short, but my husband has assured me they are the perfect length. I probably would have exchanged it for the regular length, but I didn't want to have to pay for the shipping. Overall I think this sweatercoat is a great investment. I see myself wearing it for many years to come!

    A Beautiful sweater but in no way a sweatercoat
    - This is gorgeous. But in NO way is it a sweater-coat. It is just too thin IMO to be classified as such. - I would order your usual size UNLESS you want to wear this over-sized OR you have very broad shoulders and larger arms, then, in both instances, size UP one size. - This is not lined and the material is on the thinner side. I have not had any belt "issues" as another reviewer has, but I can see where the belt could come loose, as the loops on the sweater are not very secure. - There are no buttons or slits on the cuffs, but the sleeves are still [relatively] easy to "tszuj" up. And the functional pockets and the collar's versatility to be worn a couple different ways are very nice touches. - This sweater IS going to pill, so have a sweater stone or sweater comb on hand for maintenance. - Again, it is an incredibly versatile sweater (with it's black, brown, and beige palette and patterns). It looks great with Ts, blouses, turtlenecks, and over dresses, too. It just isn't a coat in any sense of the word, so just set your expectations accordingly.

    Mixed Feelings But It's Lovely
    The combination of checks and romantic flowers drew my attention to this tee. I felt like I was wearing the equivalent to a wearable fantasy Makenzie-Childs creation. I'm a size XL and found that this tee had enough draping in the back not to call attention to my love handles. However, the fabric is pretty thin and slinky, so it did show my muffin top in the skirt I had on, which was a bit low rise. That said, if you are between sizes and want a more fitted look, I recommend sizing down. I paired the tee with Anthro's "Aneliya Cardigan" by Bordeaux. For me, as an XL, I found that the best look was not wearing by itself, but rather with that wonderful elongating cardigan. As I move I'll show enough of the white sides. I just didn't feel that with all that is going on that it slenderized me as I hoped when worn alone. You thinner ladies will rock this tee either way. I love the pairing though. The SA pointed out that while the top checks are black and white, the background color of the floral fabric is navy blue. It's so deep that I hadn't noticed, and it still looks great under a black cardigan. 'Very romantic yet contemporary top, as Anthro does so well.

    Adorable top
    This top is everything I love about Anthro - great mix of patterns, super soft fabric and a great fit. I ordered a medium, which is my typical size in Anthro and it fits great.

    Really wanted this to work
    I don't really need any tees but fell in love with the unique pattern and the fantastically soft fabric this is made of. Unfortunately, I really needed something between a medium and a large. These days I carry my weight more heavily in my abdomen and am very self conscious about it. The medium fit fine in most ways, but it hung on my stomach. I ordered the large and was swimming in it. For reference, I am 5'3", 155 lbs., 36C. If it makes the sale rack, I'll buy the large and take it in. It really is a nice shirt to wear alone or under a blazer or a cardigan.

    on the fence
    The fit of this sweater is very flattering and I like the kind of deconstructed look it has. I ordered the grey color and I think the online picture is accurate... very very light grey. I wish the sleeves were about an inch longer. With my arms at my sides, they hit just right but when I extend my arms out, they come up short, which kinda drives me nuts. I don't like having just a hint of my wrist exposed. It is also made of wool, so it's not exactly soft. I also kinda wish it didn't have a hood... I feel like the hood makes this sweater look reeeeally casual. I was hoping to wear it to work, but I don't think I will. I'm still kind of on the fence about whether or not to return this... again, the fit is very flattering. Maybe if it were discounted another $20 I'd be firm on keeping it, but I think I might rather have my money back at the current price point.

    instant hourglass
    The deep rust orange color of this jacket drew me in, but the designed hooked me. There are vertical lines running down the front of this jacket starting at the top of the shoulders, and curving inward toward the center following the line of the lapel, down to the waist tie, and then the lines run straight down to slightly flared out below the waist tie, creating an instant illusion of an hourglass figure. Also, the hood starts slightly in the front of the jacket at the shoulders making the shoulders appear broader (and thus the waist even more slender). All of these design features together make this jacket a clear winner. Quality excellent. Tuck a pretty infinity scarf into this one and go! I found it TTS. (5'2", 32C), and I took an XXSP.

    I adore this sweater!!
    Since I bought this sweater 3 weeks ago I have barely taken it off! It's exactly how I want to look right now. It's gorgeous. It's so beautiful that a friend was admiring it, we were in the bathroom at a meeting and we took out our phones and ordered one for her right there on the spot! It's a bit more difficult to wear than I thought it would be. It doesn't work as something you can just throw on top of any outfit. I found it works best with neutrals. Also the sleeves are tighter than they should be which prohibits wearing it with things I'd like to wear it with. I bought the extra small because I am smallish, and wanted to minimize all that bulk as much as I could. but because of that the sleeves were much tighter than I would have liked ideally. But in time they have stretched and I can even get them over my elbows now which is something I just have to do. I didn't find it itchy at all. I adore it!! Get it, you won't regret it!

    buy it while you can
    Love it. It's very wearable. Warm, but not like wearing a coat. I couldn't believe the compliments. At least six women commented on how much they liked it in one afternoon. I also like the two-tone which adds a little extra touch. Buy it while you can.

    Design very beautiful, arms snug
    I echo all the other comments about sweater being lovely, warm, distinctive design in back and surprisingly warm for a lace design, BUT. Arms can be an issue. I do expect some stretch in arms over time, but not a lot. Thinner under layer would be perfect otherwise you'd sweat to death in this sweater. It's extremely well made and while orig price was high, I see why as someone who crochets. I ordered normal size m and found sleeve length to be great, as my arms are long, so nearly normal for me. My arms are NOT particularly thin, but I understand the other comments. While the sweater is more A line, that works well for pears and balanced it out, instead of accentuating. I'm pear shaped and don't like things that draw eye there. If very petite you should size down. I took one star off for arm construction being an issue for some. I'm really pleased with my purchase.

    Perfect dress
    I bought this dress for the office Christmas party and got so much compliments! Love the unique colors and puffy skirt! I can totally wear it for a garden party in the summer or even for a wedding. Very satisfying purchase :)

    Fun fit and flare party dress!
    This dress is very fun and vibrant in person. The pictures are slightly misleading because it is very flared and the cap sleeves pop up because the material is very thick. With that said, the dress is great for those who love the fit and flare look. The neckline is very flattering, it is very slimming in the waist and at 5'2" the length on the regular is perfect for me. I will say that the sleeves are constructed in a way that restricts mobility and I'm usually a size 4 in similar dressed by this designer but in this dress I sized up for a 6 and its snug in the chest and across the back. I would not recommend going up another size because the fabric is so thick that any extra fabric won't drape and it would be noticeable. My only other gripe is that its polyester. . . why Anthropologie can't you have more dress made out of silk, cotton and other natural fabrics?!

    I just today received this stunning sweater and am so pleased with its design, fit and quality! It hangs exactly as pictured on the model and it is soft and warm. I ordered this in the neutral, size Large. I was a wee bit concerned that the Large might be too big as I tend to run in between a medium and large in Anthropologie offerings. Given my preference for layering however, this sweater affords a roomy enough fit without appearing over sized or too large! I was also extremely happy to find that the sweater looks fabulous whether hanging open OR buttoned up at the collar. Both looks are lovely and I adore the Sherpa collar. This sweater is MADE to look good with hats and I intend to get a lot of mileage out of wearing it with my wide array of hats and scarves!

    Love this Cardigan
    This Cardigan is one of the best Anthro purchases I made lately. It runs a tiny bit large and is really Soft, Not scratchy at all and feels great. I get many compliments from people when I wear it and is warm enough to wear by itself with no Coat over it. As mentioned in other Reviews yes it fuzzes and pills some but that is because of the Yack Wool and I can overlook that easily. I love this Cardigan and wear it often and fits nicely and looks great.

    Soft and cuddly
    Waited and watched for this cardigan to come down in price and a little disappointed in myself for waiting to purchase! Oh my it is so soft, every bit of it. Nice & warm and the rose color is quite pretty. I didn't realize how lengthy it is and happy to know I can also wear this cardigan with leggings! So cute and really darling on. Got many compliments from the hubby too so you can never go wrong with that! Great buy and addition to my wardrobe.
