Anthropologie November Reviews

Is it fair to call this “November Reviews” when I took these pictures in October? Hmmm. Well, I have never been one for technicalities. When I went to the two holiday workshops in the stores last month, I figured I might as well try on a few things while I was there. You know, if I must. Cause I had to, of course. Not because there were so many lovelies calling my name. Of course not.

I will warn you. You know how I’m lazy? Well, in one of the reviews, I could not be bothered to put on pants. That would have involved taking off my boots. And, even though I brought pants into the dressing room just for this reason, I did not use them. Life is more exciting this way. And lazy is what lazy does. Or rather does not do. So, you’ve been warned.

Here we have a pretty top. It is called the Brocade Peplum Top. Do you know I brought some pants into the dressing room to try on with this, as well? But I didn’t. I just used what I wore that day.

I don’t know about this top. I love the parakeets used in the pattern of this top. But I am not a fan of the shiny fabric. The peplum is cute. I think it is flattering. This shirt is not for me, but it would be cute for the holidays for someone who likes shimmer. I am wearing a size 6 here. It fits well.

This was all I tried on that day. I was hungry.

Hence the parakeets.

They had this wrap on the last chance rack. I thought it was lovely. I cannot find it online. If you know the name of it, please let me know.. Updated: Thank you Amles! Here is the link to the wrap. But I have no idea how to style this. I feel much older than I am in this. The pattern is beautiful, though.

Okay. Here we have Jenni wearing the Humboldt Tunic. It is a lovely shirt meant to be paired over leggings or jeans. Or, you know, the bright neon pink tights you had hiding under your dress because you thought no one would see them and you couldn’t find any socks. And if someone did catch a glimpse of them, well, maybe they would think you were edgy. Yea. Cause that is the word always used to describe you, “edgy.”

But you wore them and now you are too lazy to put pants on. So, there you stand in all your glory. Nice.

Ahem. Sorry.

I really like this top. To be fair, I thought it was a dress before I put it on. Once it was on, I just did not have the energy to rework it as a top. I am on a purchasing-sale-only kick right now, but if it is under $75 and it is a whole outfit, I might consider it. Unfortunately, this top fits neither of these categories at this time. But I will definitely reconsider it on sale. I am wearing a small here.

Also, in the red color on the site, the model is wearing the most amazing pair of blush colored pants. Does anyone know what pants those are?

Um, ’cause maybe I need some.

Update: Thank you, Angela! Here is the link for the velvet leggings I crave.

Please imagine I am not wearing bright pink tights with this dress? That question mark was a typo. But it fits this scenario. Try to imagine I am not wearing bright pink tights. Question mark. As in, how is that possible?

I know it’s hard.

This is a size small in the dress. It is called Ribboned Peasant Dress. It is on sale right now. Oh man, busty gals are going to love this dress. I have this tied as tightly as I could. I would have needed an XS in this and it still would not have fit me right. This is going to be phenomenal on the right body type. I cannot wait to see how some of the ladies are going to rock this. I am so jealous. This is a pass for me due to sizing issues.

I LOVED this dress online. It is called Galina Dress. I saved it in my wishlist along with some reddish boots and I would just stare at the combination side by side. Sigh.

Oh, you know you do it, too. ; )

But I am not in love with this dress on me. This is a size small, which I believe is the right size. The color is gorgeous. This seemed to be the hot item of the day, because I saw many ladies taking this dress into the dressing room with them.

I do not know what it is that doesn’t work for me. What do you think?

I removed this dress from my wishlist. The boots were heartbroken.

If you can’t tell, I love me some bright fun tights. I like a neutral dress I can play with to wear all of my happy colors throughout the winter. Because of my weight loss, I was down to one easy long sleeved neutral dress for the winter that worked in that category. I needed another one.

This fit the bill. In all ways, really. Including the actual bill.

It is a lounge dress. This is the Chiara Chemise. I do not know what exactly that means. “Lounge.” I guess I am supposed to lounge around the house in this.

But, we all ready know I will post pictures of myself sans pants on the internet, so it stands to reason that I would of course wear this out of the house. Everywhere. Fully standing. As in, not lounging.

Rebel. Hey, maybe I am edgy? Question mark not a typo here.

This dress is grey thermal. It is thin. It has cute little buttons on the shoulders. It was $68.

Oh man, you guys are not going to be happy with me. The pictures above are of me in the small.

But I was not comfortable in it. How could I lounge in something not comfortable?

I like to twist the word “lounge” to fit into whatever manipulation I am pulling at the time. It’s a fun little trick.

I tried on the medium, and I just liked it better. So, that is what I purchased.

I know! But it is so comfy.

I have all ready worn this three times with three different colored tights. And I am thrilled with this cute little number.

Let the “lounging” commence!

Have you tried on anything you like recently? And do you wear your “lounge” clothes out of the house (gasp!)?

  1. You look adorable in all of your bright, colored tights 🙂 I searched anthro’s site and found those pretty blush jeans; they’re Citizens of Humanity Avedon Velvet Leggings — here’s the link:

    I’m loving so many online exclusives lately, but I’m with you on your rule — wait for them to go on sale. Speaking of anthro sales, did you find any 20% off sale dresses this weekend? I found 2 knit dresses that were on sale; each dress was $24. I’m quite pleased, since I can still wear them due to our warm weather here in So Cal.
    Hope you’re having fun with the girls this weekend 🙂

    • Hi Angela! Thank you so much! I will update the post tomorrow. I added those pants to my wishlist. Thank you for finding them! I had typed in cords and could not find them! Velvet! Who knew? They are so beautiful. If they ever get to a decent sale price, I will scoop them up!

      Those dresses sound like an amazing bargain! Lucky girl! I got a price adjustment on the margot dress (I think that is what it was called.). Bringing it down to $24. Yay! My husband loves it, so it was a double score!

      I am still in a daze. Crazy night! No sleep! As soon as I finish comments, I am crawling into bed! : )

      Have a great week!

  2. Just read your blog from yesterday and see that you did purchase a dress during this week’s sale — so pretty on you and I think your pink tights will look great paired with it!

  3. Just wondering if that’s a free people dress you have on with the wrap? Love the tights by the way! That’s what I love about you! It’s REAL!

    • Hi Andrea!

      Thank you! It is a Free People dress. I cannot remember what it was called. I think the tag said it was originally $168. It was marked down to I believe $40 at Nordstrom Rack. I bought mine in July, but I saw some as recently as two weeks ago at Nordstrom Rack. It is very comfy.

      Thank you for the kind compliment! I do try to be real! Always. I appreciate you remarking on it. Thank you!

      I hope your week is marvelous!

      Jenni

      • Aw, man! I’m sorry. Let me do some digging tomorrow and see if I can find what it was called. That way maybe you could watch for it on eBay!

        I will let you know! Sweet dreams!

  4. Haha…you crack me up!! So… I also bought the dress disguised as a chemise/loungewear in the grey. Love it too lots :-)…I love it when I can find something in the section that works as a piece of clothing. Woot!
    I ended up getting the Humboldt tunic in blue but ordered the petite..the front just feel all wrong in the reg sizing on me.
    What was it you didn’t like about the Galina dress? I’m sort of loving it on you…do you think its a size down sort of dress? I want the purple color ..but haven’t seen it in person or tried it….as for the Peasant dress, I also tried it and it was all sorts of wrong on me.
    Have a great weekend! 🙂

    • Hi Kara! Thank you! Wow! We definitely have the same taste! I think that dress is so great. I want to wear it everyday. I am so jealous that you have the Humboldt Tunic. I really, really liked it.

      I felt kind of like an 80s business woman in the Galina dress. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing. But it just wasn’t “me.” The color is gorgeous, though. And I would definitely size down.

      You have a lovely week!

      Thank you so much for commenting. Hey! We have the same taste, so if you see anything else awesome, please let me know. : )

      • Hi Jenni~
        I went to Anthro today just to try the Paix Tunic..and shamefully walked out with it…(lol **my sad wallet**)….you probably need to try this one for sure!!(EA folks were right, its super cute) I went down to a 0…and I am usually a 2/4 depending.
        Go try it! 🙂

        Kara

      • Hi Kara!

        Okay. You made me cave. I bought a size 4 (gosh. That does not seem right. I hope it fits) to try on with free shipping. I am only keeping it if it amazing! I will let you know! It looks so cute online. Thank you for the encouragement. Aaaaahhh! If I do keep it, I will give it to my husband to give to me for Christmas. I hope they do a % off for Black Friday and that I could do a price adjustment, too. Look at all of my wishes! ; )

        Have a fantastic Friday!

        Jenni

  5. You are hysterical!!! I can’t sop laughing. Love the pink tights. My lounge clothes are my husband’s 20 year old sweat pants with holes so I don’t dare leave the house in them. I really love the Brocade Peplum Top on you. It goes great with your yellow pants.

    • Thank you Cynthia! : ). I was worried I was going to offend people. I am glad you got my humor. I sleep in my husband’s twenty year old t-shirt, as well. They are just the best. Thank you for the compliment, too. I wish it wasn’t shiny.

      I hope your week is fantastic!

      Jenni

    • Oh my gosh! Thank you so much Melinda! I ordered a medium with their $10 off coupon. I hope it fits! Thank you for letting me know!

      Have a terrific Tuesday!

      Jenni

    • Hi Terry!

      Thank you so much! I am so glad you commented here. You are always so sweet to me on Facebook. I still have not figured that whole thing out. And I have been wanting to tell you “thank you” for awhile. I appreciate it.

      I hope your week is perfect!

      Jenni

    • Thank you so very much! My husband is asleep, and he does all my links. I will ask him to add it tomorrow! I really appreciate it!

      Thank you!

      Have a joyful Tuesday!
