Anthropologie Fitting Room Reviews: Part Two

And on to Part Two of my Sunday afternoon Fitting Room Reviews.... 
Pilcro Stet Slim Straight
Style No.  B22527774
I can't even tell you how much I wanted to love these Pilcro jeans.  I saw them appear online and was SO completely excited to get to Anthro to try them on.  I have been 'jonesing' (are you digging the old school terminology?!) for a pair of colored skinny's for fall and these looked fantastic... especially given the price point.  Seemed so incredible compared to my beloved A.G. Stevies which are practically twice the price.  Anyway, on to the review.  First of all, the website labels these as Pink, but they are definitely more of a Rust color... perfect for fall might I add.  Unfortunately I was so disappointed.  I tried on my regular 25.  To say that I was swimming in them would be a vast understatement.  I tried to show the crazy amount of extra inches in the waistline in the picture below, but unfortunately I think the picture is too far away to really tell.  Perhaps it's because I don't have the full-sized rear I've always secretely wanted (think towards the line of one Kim Kardashian rather than Kim from Array of Anthro.  Room in the front, room in the rear, room in the legs.  If you all are able to find a pair that fits, I am truly jealous as they are lovely.  Size down, unless you have been gifted with some serious junk in that trunk.....

With Ease Wide-Legs
Style No. 21210661
Oh, I loved the idea of these wide legged, flowy pants.  The beautiful cream color, the crisp linen feel, the elastic wasteband that seems so elusive and is such a welcomed treat.  Unfortunately, the sheer width of these seemed to eat me alive.  They are LOVELY.  Give them a shot, and please please send me pictures if you've found that they surprise you and look wonderful!  True to size in the waist and length.

Pilcro Superscript Cords
Style No. C22514335
Grabbed these as I have been desperate to jump on the cords bbandwagon, as well as give the extreme flare thrownback shape a shot.  These Pilco's were WONDERFUL.  Maybe it was the deep rust color, maybe it was the sweet little pocket details on the front.  Perhaps it was the fact that I found a pair of pants that FITS MY HINEY!! (See below, it's true... they don't hang off me!)  Wearing a size 0, so I would say TTS, though you may need to size up if you've got a little goin' on behind.  They're stretchy so I think you'll be safe!  I absolutely loved these.  My husband, on the other hand, wasn't completely won over.  I'm not sure if he is ready to truly re-embrace the 70's and the bell bottoms that inevitably have followed.  What are your thoughts?!  Yes or No?

Houndstooth Collage Pencil Skirt
Style No. 22806582
Twisted Ascot Tee
Style No. 21385729
What can I saw about the Twisted Ascot Tee that hasn't already been said in the blogging community?  It is lovely, it is unique, and I loved it.  Wearing an xs here, so definitely TTS.  The only thing I will add, is the 'Beige' is definitely more of a golden color.  Beware of those online colors sometimes!  Love the color in store even more.... Definitely recommend!

I also loved the idea of the the Houndstooth Collage Pencil Skirt. The structure, the lines, the buttons were all simply lovely.  The fit was WAY off unfortunately.  I went with my regular size here, and had at least 3-4 inches of excess waist room.  Certainly can't afford buying at full price just to have a serious alteration.  I may keep my eye out in a couple months come sale time, though.  I do recommend trying on... there are endless outfit possibilities with this pretty little number!

Interspersed Ponte Dress
Style No. 21329024

Oh how unexpected this dress was for me.  The lace detail on the shoulders and back was what led me to pick it up, though I truly wasn't expecting anything exceptional.  Perhaps it's not.  But I loved it.  It's very difficult to see in the pictures, but this dress has the most incredible seams and structure to it.  I felt like it hit my body in all the right places, and flowed away from my hips in the way that makes you feel so utterly feminine.  This is an xs, so definitely go with your regular size on this.  I can't actually tell what color this is based on the online colorways.  I would guess it was the plum, as it seemed a very rich purple in person (though the plum shot online looks so light!)

Printed Boy Tee, Stripes
Style No. 20858122
Purple Motif
Now $19.95
 AND finally got my hands on this number.  Such an easy, versatile tee.  TTS and great for casual dress with jeans or shorts, or even for a bit of pattern mixing with skirts in your closet!

  6. Love the cords! Your legs look so long and lean. Must. Try. On.

  7. I love those Pilcro girls on you girl - you need them in your life! As for the Pilcro jeans, they run huge - the 25 was hanging off of me, so you're not alone there. Pilcro is notorious for running large.
    I also love the Interseped Ponte Dress - did you notice it being itchy at all? that was my major beef with it.

  8. I LOVE that skirt on you! It's adorable. And the Interseped dress is amazing too. Great reviews!

  9. The community has spoken, and they have spoken loudly husband so listen up: I need this beautiful Interseped Dress, and yes, in fact, I do need the cords! Whoop and thank you ladies!!!
