    Classy, Casual Wardrobe Staple
    I would own this dress in all three colors if I could! It's fantastic. It has a sleek, sophisticated fit that you can dress up or down, and it's incredibly comfortable. It is VERY fitted in the waist, but my waist is the smallest part of me, so I like that and look for it. I'm a 33-23-35, 5'5" tall, and the XS fits very comfortably on me. I love that it shows my figure but is still work appropriate. It's true that the fabric seems like it would pick easily, but I've been lucky so far. No cuddling my cats in this one. It's a little pricey, but I loved it so much that I didn't want to wait and pray to the Sales Corner Gods for it to show up in their realm. It probably will eventually, but I didn't want to risk having it sell out in my size. Worth the price tag for something I can wear so many ways for at least 3 seasons of the year, and is so comfy. If you love A-line cut things and accentuating your waist, you need this dress.

    Perfect Fit
    I went to the store and tried on the dress in blue-- I saw the mauve color, but thought it may wash me out in the later winter months and I had no idea that green was an option. I was hesitant to try on the dress as it looked long (I am 5'3" and I tried it on in XXSP), but when I tried it on it looked perfect. It was stylish, but not too stylish. I could not justify spending $148.00 on the dress, so after much consideration I left without buying it. However, this fit and style was so perfect I could not stop thinking about it. I went online and discovered the moss color and I was sold. I bought the dress immediately. The blue is gorgeous, but with my coloring I am hoping that the moss will look even better. I plan to wear this to work and to Christmas parties with suede booties. The dress is fitted in the chest and arms area-- it is revealing in that sense. Otherwise, the waist down is very forgiving.

    Casual Comfort
    I don't find most midi dresses to be flattering, so I actually ordered this dress in petite sizing--and I'm glad I did. Now the skirt just touches the bottom of my knees, instead of cutting me off mid-calf and making me look short. The fabric is super stretchy and skims over all my curves. I love how I can dress it up or down depending on the situation, and when the dress went on sale I ended up buying all 3 original colors. A word of caution, however--after a few wears and washes, the fabric going from under the armpits down to the waistband, running down the sides of my torso, has gotten very thin. I suspect it's due to my larger chest size, which can pull on the fabric weave and has often been a problem when I shop for Anthro dresses, but I'm still disappointed. Busty ladies should approach this one with some caution.

    Great transitional sweater
    Love this sweater! Bought it on sale, and when it arrived the color and shape were just what I had hoped for. The only downside...the sweater was FILTHY. Clearly someone had purchased, worn it (it was saturated with rancid perfume and the neck was covered in makeup. no tags) and then returned it without conscience. I'm just really sorry that the Anthro team felt it was appropriate to send it out to a new home without cleaning it. That said, I followed the washing instructions and it's now clean and free of perfume. I gave it 4 starts because of the condition it arrived in. PS - I kind of hope the person who returned it in poor condition reads this review...and maybe feels a little remorse!

    Great, soft sweater!
    I got this sweater in peach and its SO soft! Very comfortable and worth the cost. Would definitely recommend.

    love it!!
    I love this sweater!! I got the blue - a gorgeous, deep color! (I also tried on the white in stores and also really liked it, although the vertical stitch in the neck is more noticeable in white - not necessarily bad, depending on what you're looking for). The cinch detail on the back as well as the high neckline are flattering. I got the medium, and it fit perfectly - it is slightly baggy/floppy, but that is the style. This sweater is cozy, beautiful, and can be dressed up or down for both holiday parties and chill nights at home. I recommend this product!!

    Cute Dress!
    I tried this on in a regular size zero, which was quite my mistake, as I am usually a regular size 4 and thought I had grabbed that size. I'd say this runs big, as I was able to zip up the size zero without an issues, though I would probably size up to purchase. For reference, I am 5'1' and 118 lbs and usually a 4P or SP. The dress fell a couple of inches above my knees, which I thought was flattering. The shoulders fell a little off the shoulder for me- sleeves like this sometimes drive me crazy as I keep wanting to pull them up to cover my shoulders. The top portion of the dress has a leotard look to it, which I like. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a bit short-waisted. I thought the overall look was flattering, as the skirt has a bit of an A-line shape to it. The fabric is soft and has a good weight to it. Overall, I definitely think it is worth the price tag.

    great fall dress
    i bought the two summer versions of this dress and i loved them, but the scoop neck is a little low and occasionally my bra shows. i bought this dress because everything else was great about the others. and this one is close to perfect. the ballet scoop neck line looks so elegant, and not too low. the skirt hits at the smallest part of my waist and falls nicely….not to straight, not to flowly. hits above the knee on me (5'5), in the same place it hits the model. and the skirt has all of the lovely deep colors pictured. i also enjoy the stretch fabric. again, not too heavy but not too flowy. i am smaller on top, larger on bottom. 34A, 27 waist, 37 hips, 5'5, 127 lbs. 0 fits me perfectly…. the arms are slightly tight when i put them on, but the fabric stretches and is comfortable. my only complaint is that i cannot buy another in a different pattern.

    Cute!!
    I love everything about this dress but it goes a bit to deep in the front for me. Otherwise it fits perfectly. It hits all the same places on me as on the model. I got a size 4, I am 5'7" and 117lbs. love it!

    My favorite skirt!
    This skirt is sophisticated, sexy without being inappropriate and sleek. The slit hits about miniskirt length and if you get be right fit, it shouldn't gape open. Beautiful colors just like the photo. The fabric is comfortable and stretchy. This length makes me look taller and very slender. It can be deessed up or down and looks great with boots. I would say that it runs TTS to slightly small with the understanding that this is a form fitted skirt. I am debating going up a size but I would be happy in my regular size, too. Your regular size should give you a form fitted look (going outside the bounds of work appropriate unless you wear tights underneath). A size up should be a little more roomy if you aren't comfortable with the skirt being so form fitted, and the slit can be pinned for work. So I would choose sizing based on the look you are going for. For reference I'm in my usual size XXSP (24.5 waist, 32 hips)

    LOVE
    I LOVE this skirt. It is my absolute favorite. It is better quality than I even imagined it would be and the material is super soft and comfortable. It's not too heavy and is perfect for all seasons. I wasn't sure if the medium would be too small and I don't like tight fitting skirts, but I went with the medium because the large was out of stock. I'm glad I did. (I'm 5'8" and about 140 lbs). It fits perfectly. If you aren't sure, I say go for it!

    Lovely tapesty print.
    What I loved: Tapesty print + Side slit This is an absolutely gorgeous tapestry print skirt in a mediumweight cotton knit spandex material, perfect for fall. It reminds of the Tile skirts Anthropologie came out with a few season back in a green and an orange colorway. The fabric is very comfortable. The side slit is also very special. Without it, the print looks a bit too old for me. The slit adds a bit youth to the whole design. The slit is a bit high - think mini skirt height - but I don't mind. What I didn't love: Sizing is a bit off, some loose threads. I'm usually a XS/S in the bottoms and skirts, but I went with a size M in this. The hips are narrow, and while there is spandex, there is little give in some places. Also I noticed there were loose thread in the some pieces in store, so be careful of the piece you pick up.

    Love, love, love!!!
    I can't believe how beautiful this sweater is!! I was in my local Anthro yesterday and took 9 or 10 things into the fitting room with me. This one was such an obvious keeper!!! It is one of the best purchases I've made at anthropologie. It is a fine knit sweater top, with embroidered lace sleeves. I absolutely love the look of long lace sleeves. The front looks like a simple crew neck top, but what makes it unique is the pleated back. I'll be honest... Had I just seen it online, I probably would've passed right over it. I really didn't think I could pull off the pleats. But in trying it on, I saw how nicely they lay, and I loved it!! I tried on my usual Medium, but sized down to a Small which fit better. I'm 5'8 and 150 lbs. This has a vintage, romantic feel to it. Yet it pairs nicely with skinny jeans and boots. I bought the Sand color, which is 1000 times more beautiful in person. I didn't hesitate to spend the $ at full price...it was worth every cent!

    Cute Top!
    As soon as this top showed up in my local Anthropologie, I tried it on. I liked it and bought it. The online picture had convinced me that I liked the lighter colored one better. However, in person, I liked the dark grey better. Another customer trying both of them on, also bought the dark grey. We agreed that it was richer looking and the lighter one made both of us look washed out. The other things that surprised me about this top when trying it on were: 1. The back lace flatters the bum because it gently cups just under the rear-end; 2. The front does not do much for the figure since it lies loosely; 3. The sleeves are very pretty;4. The colors in the dark grey top match better than they look online and; 5. Inspite of being an acrylic body and polyester lace back (I hate acrylic and polyester) this top IS comfortable to wear. This top runs TTS. I've been taking a size XS lately in Anthro sweaters - and I did also in this top. For reference I am; 119 lbs, 36-27-36, 5'4". The size XS fit me exactly like it did on the online model. Also, Warning; you cannot steam the lace in the back because you will steam out the pleats. However it is very easy to press the wrinkles out and the pleats in - using an iron on the SYNTHETIC setting (or you will melt the lace).

    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!

    Love all the details!
    First off, I don't know if it has something to do with the whole blue/black dress internet sensation (I saw blue/gold, btw), but I ordered the Copper color and, in my eyes, it looks more like an olive color. Nonetheless, I love these tops. If I could give more than 5 stars for the aesthetic/design, I would! They are a bit looser, forgiving in the tummy area, and they are long! I am 5'9", about 155 lbs, and ordered my normal medium and found the fit to be perfect. I did find the sleeves to be rather slim-fitting, but I can live with it. I also got the navy and love it even more! Even the back inside label is adorable!

    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.

    Drapes nicely and is flattering
    I purchased this top online with a 25% off sale. I received my shipment very quickly as usual with Anthro. I am 5'9, 137 lbs and I ordered my usual small in Anthro shirts and it fit perfectly. I ordered the dark green and found the fabric to be very thin, so I had to wear a dark cami underneath. No big deal. After one wear I noticed a hole just above the pocket seam. The fabric is very delicate. Took back to Anthro store in mall and they gladly exchanged for another one. So far no holes in this one, have worn and washed 2 times. It's very simple shirt with beautiful detailing around the neck line. Some might consider neckline a bit low, but it works for me and doesn't show too much. I am a 32DD. Considering buying another in the berry color but not entirely sold on paying the $48 price. Might wait for another sale. All in all a nice easy shirt that can be dressed up or down that would be flattering on just about any body shape as it's not tight around the middle.

    Amazing Top!
    This top is perfect in every way. It has a wonderful, flattering fit. Easy to layer and mix and match with all sorts of pieces in any wardrobe. It's also extremely comfortable. I was so excited when I got the package in the mail, unwrapped it, and felt the fabric. I put the shirt on immediately and I feel like I am being caressed by an angel. You will not be disappointed. I'm really tempted to buy one in every color while they are still on sale. I am so passionate about this shirt that I am writing a review. I never write reviews. Seriously. I am one happy customer right now.

    Favorite shirt
    I own this top in 3 colors. I love that i can dress it down or dress it up and it always makes me look amazing. Super flattering. My measurements at 39-29-40 and the medium fits me well. I was recently at cabin in Tahoe with a bunch of friends, and another woman there brought the top in 2 other colors. Definitely the perfect piece.
