anthropologie new arrivals round 2

Another round of anthropologie new arrivals...

I haven't seen this top on the anthro website just yet, but as soon as I saw the teal color, ruffles and cute print in the store I snatched it up! I didn't catch the designer, but this top is adorable! It is a silk material and flowy and the color is gorgeous. Also, who wouldn't want little parachutes on their top?? :) I think I'm definitely going back for this top, I can't stop thinking about it!

I haven't seen this top on the anthro website yet either, but how cute is it? Slap some bows and ruffles on any top and I immediately want it! The top has grosgrain straps and the back of the top is a solid black jersey (the ruffles don't go all the way around). The top also comes in a cream color.

The buds and stripes top just popped up on the website and I was excited to see it in my local store. The front of the top is a silk material with a floral print, while the back of the top is more like a jersey print with black and white diagonal stripes. I love the contrast of the prints on the top and the fit was very flattering.

When I saw the Akebia dress online I loved the colors and the print of the dress and the dress didn't disappoint in real life. I usually try and buy dresses from anthro that I can wear to work and on weekends and while I loved this dress, I thought that the tiered ruffles on the bottom of the dress were a little too frilly for the workplace. That being said, I love the dress for weekend wear!

The last dress isn't on the website and I liked the dress in theory with the lace and ruffles, but the material was just too thin and the print didn't knock me out like some of the other dresses in store right now.

I am still holding out on this beauty to show up in stores... so pretty... *sigh*


  1. I really am loving that first top!! Cannot wait to see that one online!

    The last dress is also really pretty! I can tell Anthro is going to be killing me and my wallet for Spring!

  2. I really like the second top. I cannot wait for more info.
    Thanks for the pictures.

  3. Jessica - Thanks, I loved the first top too! It is adorable and I definitely recommend it!

    Rosa in DC - Thanks, I loved the second top as well!

    Everything is so cute from anthropologie right now.... they are trying to make me broke!!

  4. I love the first 3 tops on you so much - they all look fantastic! I'm excited to see 1 & 2 in my store so I can try them on.

  5. Thanks Kim! I ended up going back and getting the first top cause I couldn't stop thinking about it. I'm also thinking I might have to head back for the second one... :)

  6. Hi,
    I just discovered your site and I love it! I just bought the first top, and I am so glad that I did. It's definitely a piece of clothing that made me feel confident, and the parachutes are so adorable.

    The Akebia dress looks great on you. I didn't see it in store but when I go back I'll have to try it on and hope it looks as good on me, lol.

    Thank you for keeping a great blog. I can tell I'm going to be addicted to it.

  7. Hi . happy to have you as a reader! I'm glad you like the parachute top as much as I do - I just thought it was too cute to pass up!

    Thanks for the compliment on the Akebia dress! I keep thinking I really want to go back for it, but there are so many other spring anthro items that I may like more... so I'm going to hold back on getting it for now.

  8. Vanessa,

    I am dying for the first top to show up on the website - but nothing yet! Can you give me the details: sizing, price, product number and store you got yours?


  9. Hi Jessica. The brand of the top is Fei and it is $88. I normally wear a zero in anthro tops and I got a zero in this top, but since it is a bit flowy you could probably size down if you have a smaller chest. The product number is 17845116 (I think this is the product number - it's the first one on the tag) and I got it at the Beverly Hills Anthropologie. The number for the Beverly Hills Anthropologie is (310) 385-7390.

    Hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else!

  10. Thank you so much, Vanessa! I'll definitely be calling tomorrow :]

  11. Hi! Kim from Anthroholic just sent me over here to see your review of the Free Flow tank (the ruffled one) and now I am enamored with that parachute one! I also love your blog. We're similarly sized so it will be nice to see your reviews since I'm 3 hours away from an Anthro.


  12. Hi Maria! Sorry it took me a while to get back to you - I have been out of town for work. So glad to have you as a reader and I'm also a huge fan of your blog as well!
