Anthropologie Reviews - Printed Boy Tee, Top Sail Maxi, Frilled Echelons Peacoat, Hallstatt Plaid Cape


Printed Boy Tee, Bugs (size M) $19.95

How I love the concept but just didn't do much for me. The cotton is incredibly soft but since there is no spandex in there I have to size up for my chest. Bugs adorable, high neck and shape not so much.

Helping Hands Top (size M) $19.95
See above. Cute print, nice cotton but see through and too high of a neck for me.

Hallstatt Plaid Cape (one size) $79.95 

I LOVE the plaid on this thing. Gorgeous. But the shape was just too big and I couldn't quite figure out of the belt went over or under or what in the back. Very cool but too shapeless for me.

Frilled Echelons Peacoat (size 4?)

This is sold out online presently. The color is divine and the idea is great. I'm not a big ruffles kind of girl but I can see the attraction. Unique. One thing I didn't like was the way the buttons lined up in front. You can see it in the top picture - they sort of look lopsided, like there is something wrong with the construction of the coat.

Top Sail Maxi Dress (XS) $79.95

I have already professed my love for this dress but thought I would post some better pictures. It is dreamily comfortable and although slightly clingy I don't feel naked and didn't even notice a panty line. I do think I will have the straps taken up which will make it able to be worn without the tee and will help me with the length. Still on the fence about definitely keeping it but am leaning towards yes....

Hoping for a few new cuts tomorrow on items I have been watching. Also expecting my Trace the Stars blouse to arrive this week and I will review it as soon as it comes!


  1. Thanks for the reviews! Great pic of the Top Sail Maxi. Love that dress.

  2. Oh no....that poncho is so cute! They're supposed to be shapeless, woman. *lol* I'm wondering if the fact that you're putting your arm up to take a pic affected buttons on the echelon. That would make it crooked, no? Or maybe you examined it without taking a photo and they were still crooked...Still one of my favorite pieces from Anthro this fall. I haven't purchased it because I literally wouldn't be able to fit it in the coat closet.
