I went to the local Anthro to visit with my skirt, hoping I would still find one in my size lost on the sale rack. Sadly, it wasn't meant to be, so I took the opportunity to look at some of the new items, such as this beautiful Ombre Petals Pencil Skirt. I am wearing size 4 and it is a snug fit. I vary between size 2-4 in Anthro skirts. I really love it, but it is way shorter than I expected it to be.

Next I tried on the Slouched Sailor Blouse size S and ivory, and it was huge, even though it wasn't supposed to be fitted. I would definitely size down in this one.

Next is the Hourglass Form Dress. I am wearing size 4, which is about the rigth size in Anthro dresses for me. It's a beautiful dress, but then I looked at the label. Polyester? It doesn't feel like it is, but for $168, I'd expect at least cotton.

Next was the Brushed Terra Dress size S. This one is a cotton/nylon/spandex mix, with a rayon lining. It's a pretty lace, and would consider it on sale only.
Next I tried on a couple of tops. The first one is the Bits Of Jubilee Boatneck. I am wearing size S. The cap sleeves are a bit stiff because of all the ribbons sewn onto them and don't look that great in my opinion.

Lastly, the Constant Salutation Top also size S. It's very fitted and made of 2 panels in the front and 2 in the back. Not sure it was the design idea or just to save on costs. The back is also quite low cut, and there is ruching on the sides.Constant Salutation Top
I also noticed the local store is carrying more scarves than before. I wish they would carry more belts as well. I find the Anthro belts really versatile. Maybe I'll suggest that to the manager.
