Rated 5 out of 5 by sandragon WAY BETTER IN PERSON!
II rarely even look at cardigans but when this one caught my eye in the store, I tried it on and was hooked. It's so versatile, too. Works great with jeans and skirts. Although I'm 5'2", the regular sized XS fit beautifully. (But keep in mind that I'm somewhat long-wasted and I prefer close-fitting jackets, and now, cardigans.) The weave of black and ivory is nubby, in contrast to the solid ivory panels which are more tightly woven. I love the collar - very feminine in contrast with the overall design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CJDell Collar rolls up in back
I almost bought this sweater jacket. The fit was perfect on me and I absolutely love the styling. However, the collar in the back won't stay down. It rolls up. I noticed this on the jackets still on hanger and one of the store employees said she noticed it too. Must be a design flaw. If you don't mind the collar rolling up, go for it because it's beautiful otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vaporgirl White side panels are not your friend
I wanted to like this jacket. Anthropolgie jackets don't always accommodate a generous bust and this one does! But the design is best worn by someone with an hourglass figure or who's tall and slim. On me the white side panels hit at the absolute worst part of my body, giving me the appearance of massive love handles! Black side panels would have been much more slimming. But if slimming isn't an issue for you, go for it.
On the quality side, I bought online and the jacket arrived with a snag along the zipper and a snag on the arm. Also the knit appears to have a little weight in the photo, in fact it's lightweight and very unstructured (ie as slubbing as it says).
