Anthropologie Review: Sidewinder Blazer, Cabled Boucle Pullover, Zig Jacquard Cardigan, Neela Cable Cardi and Tartan Blanket Coat

I can't quite believe that Anthropologie has been offering an extra 25% off sale items for a week now! I was sure it would be just a weekend thing but I'm glad it's lasted. I've caught some nice popbacks of things that I've been wanting to try forever (including this lovely looking cable sweater) so I'm excited for those packages to arrive.

 Zig Jacquard Cardigan (XS)
I had been eyeballing this online for forever and am glad I got to see it in person. It's so cozy but I think it's a bit overwhelming on me (I'm 5'4"). The arms run a bit snug so keep this in mind on sizing.

A few more images. It's cute but I think I would have preferred it end higher up - like where the jacquard pattern is and forget that stripey business at the bottom. Very warm.

I'm not sure what to say about this one. I saw it on the rack and thought for sure I would be taking it home with me. I look like a demented Muppet (okay so the floral boots are not exactly helping). I think this coat would be helped be a taller stature. Also no fringe - something about the fringe adds to the crazy. I do like the colors and the idea however, just not right for me.

 Cabled Boucle Pullover (S) in Purple
This is a lot of sweater but man oh man is it cozy. I wish I could find it in a PXS but they seem to be sold out. I did get it in the neutral color in an XS and it fits a little bit better. It's cut sort of wide which makes it hang a bit funny on my chest. I do love the buttons and material.

 Neela Cable Cardi in Grey (XS)
The main body of this is like a sweatshirt lined with fleece - so cute. The cabling at the front is a nice detail. This is a great little cozy casual number if you like the whole open, high-low cardigan thing.

 Sidewinder Blazer (S)

This piece is so lovely and was a great deal with sale + 25%. This is one size up from my normal and is still quite snug - and not just in the chest - it's quite snug in the waist as well. I think this makes it look fairly dressy despite the casual material. The material is really cozy - feels sort of sweatshirt-y but not. Adorable and very flattering.

What have you been stalking during Anthro's extra 25% sale?

  1. Heh...I brought home the tartan coat 'cause I love it and it was a good deal but I'm definitely conflicted- It's a bit much! I'm hoping with boots it will work for fall...
