anthropologie winter wishlist

I visited Anthropologie earlier this week and checked out some of the new merchandise.  Time for a seasonal update on all my anthro loves and desires:

anthro carved cove sweater

Carved Cove Sweater – $128

I’m not typically into sweaters or jackets that have a nubby fabric or texture, but this one is adorable, warm and soo comfy.  It also comes in black and dark orange, but I love the neutral gray.  The half-ruched/half-bow detailing is very cute and very flattering.  The sillhouette is a little fitted and it runs pretty much true to size.  The price however is semi-absurd.

anthropologie blurred gardens tee

Blurred Gardens Tee – $58

Gosh, I love this blouse.  It’s so bright and cheerful.  I very very rarely buy pieces at full price from Anthro, but I made an exception in this case.

anthro citrus cluster cardigan

Citrus Cluster Cardigan – $138

Surprisingly cute.  You wouldn’t think so since it looks so old-fashioned what with the crafty-buttons and the lace trim, but that’s almost part of it’s charm.  The buttons are actually quite beautiful up close.  And I love the lace at the collar and the flattering seamings at the bust.

 I normally wear a small, but I think I probably could have stood sizing up with this one since it seems to gape a little at the bust (an unfortunate consequence of it having one closure in the center).  Another absurdly overpriced item though IMO.

anthro capacious cardi

Capacious Cardigan – $98

This is so cute, and surprisingly warm.  I love the funnel collar and the casual drapeyness to the whole look.

sight reading cardigan

Sight Reading Cardigan – $98

This cardigan is so beautiful, with sheet music printed in a delicate shaky script all over it.  However, it is so thin, it’s not all that warm and I have a bad feeling it might lose shape quickly :/  My pictures of these turned out too crappy to post, but the sizing/fit is fairly standard for Anthro cardigans.

anthro pale noon cardigan

Pale Noon Cardigan – $148 (on sale for $79.95)

I was gone for a while so I had a backlog of catalogs to get through; I was browsing through the last Anthropologie catalog in the morning while eating breakfast and I saw the picture of this cardigan above and my heart fluttered.  Imagine my surprise when I walked in the store to see it already on sale.  I took that as I sign to buy it immediately.

The cardigan is really beautiful — it is a soft knit in the palest shade of peach, with beautiful pearly buttons and slanted pockets.  Underneath is a built-in lacy blouse, which is quite pretty, if sort of hard to button.  However, what you can’t tell too clearly from the pictures is that it has a bubble hem, which I’m sort of dubious about.  I have a butt that is already quite generously proportioned; there’s really no need to enhance it even further, is there?  Here is an embarrassing side view to illustrate:

Sigh, but I kind of love it regardless.  This will be a winter go-to-outfit with jeans, and I kind of want to try it over a swingy dress or skirt a la the catalog picture as well.

Well, besides the last sweater and the t-shirt, none of this is what I actually ended up *buying*,  but this post is getting absurdly long and I’ll save that for another day.

Love the Blurred Gardens Tee on you :) Would you mind telling me what size you are wearing?

Comment by Anu

thanks Anu :) I’m wearing a S. It’s a tiny bit loose and I could have probably sized down to an XS if I really felt like it, but I was pretty happy with it as it was too. Hope this helps you out!

Awesome style, hey that Carved Cove Sweater is on sale for 69.95, hpe you can get a price adjustment since you bought it recently.

Comment by Amber

Citrus Cluster Cardigan is on sale also, It says you can do a price adjustment within 14 days of buying merchandise, some of your other stuff might be on sale also.

Comment by Amber

thanks Amber! I didn’t actually buy either of those items, I know well enough to wait for Anthro sales. Already snapped them up today! :)

I remember seeing the Citrus Cluster Cardigan at Anthropologie but was in a hurry and could not stay in the long line to buy. I was wondering about the fit – did you end up buying a larger size and are you really in love with it (seeing if it is worth me starting the search for it). Thanks :o)

Comment by Irene

Hi Irene — I did end up ordering the Citrus Cluster cardigan in a M instead of a S (which I wear on top almost always) and it was definitely the right choice. If you are at all big busted I would definitely recommend doing the same! It is very pretty, although I am debating keeping it since I have an already embarrassingly large collection of frilly cardigans that I don’t get a chance to wear that often.

[...] I made the same complaint when I reviewed a very similar cardigan, the Sheet Music Cardi (review here, actual IRL picture here) last year, and even though I ended up buying it, I rarely wear it because [...]
