A few Anthropologie Reviews

Hi Everyone!

Without question, J. Crew is my favorite store.  Next to J. Crew, Anthropologie is my favorite store.  Unfortunately, we don't have an Anthropologie where I live.  So, I rely heavily on Anthro blogs to help me with sizing, and to determine which I items I want to try on/scope out when I'm traveling.  After seeing Jenni's review of the Fresh as Air Top or Braxton Top and the Ampay Necklace HERE, I knew that I wanted to try these items, and boy am I glad that I did.  I'm a sucker for polka dots and super cute necklaces!  Here are a few IRL pictures of the necklace and top:



I haven't mastered the art of taking my own pictures, so I apologize for this blurry image.  Here is another quick snap that my wonderful husband took:



So, I need your help:  is this top too cropped for me?  Please weigh in!

I also grabbed a necklace I've been eyeing on the website for weeks, the Hollowed Harmonics Necklace.  Here is an IRL picture:



Finally, I knew that I had to have the Paso Fino Sandals seen below when I saw the wonderful Roxy review these shoes on her amazing blog, Effortless Anthropologie HERE.




I was able to grab these shoes when I was in San Francisco last week, and I had them shipped to me.  Upon arrival, however, I realized that these shoes are not going to work for me.   Here are a few IRL pictures of the shoes that demonstrate that they're too big in the back, and that my toe is too close to the front/edge:




These shoes are going back, unfortunately.

What do you think of these Anthropologie items?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the polka dot top and not, it is not too cropped. Too bad about the shoes, the look so cute inthe picture but not so irl. And I have to laugh because I think I have the same countertop, faucet and towel ring in my bathroom.

    1. ajc: Thanks SO much, I really appreciate your help! You're right, too bad about the shoes. I really wanted them to work, but they're just not a good fit. And, LOL about us having the same counter top, faucet, and towel ring in our bathrooms!!! Great minds definitely think alike!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  2. Hi Rynetta,

    I love the polka dot top. Those sandals remind me of ones that i ordered on FS (when will I learn!) late last summer that when they arrived where just huge and they were a 1/2 smaller. They went to consignment store....

    I think I am done for awhile - I ordered a nice tippi sweater (in the neon persimmon - that may not be a keeper...) a lovely belt, a pair of linen shorts on sale and the giraffe bangle. I have pre-ordered the porcelain paisley skirt, but now nothing else till I go to Boston in July and Paris in August!

    1. WMM: Thanks SO much for your help! I really appreciate it! Oh no about the shoes you had to consign. Trust me, I know the feeling when you purchase something that you think will work, only to discover that it doesn't. I've sold my share of things at consignment shops too.

      I did a pre-order for the porcelain paisley skirt too! I can't wait to get my hands on that beautiful skirt! OOOOOOO, I wish that I had grabbed the giraffe bangle, but I missed out on it.

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  3. Hi Rynetta,
    I love the polka dot top with the harmonics necklace! Definitely not too cropped at all. It might present a nice opportunity to pair the top with a belt too. I'm so sorry about the sandals, I too loved the look! Happy shopping!
    Best,
    Erin

      Thanks SO much for your help!!! I really appreciate the feedback. I'm glad that the shirt isn't too cropped because I love it! OOOOO, great idea about adding a belt! Like you, I really loved the sandals, but they just don't work, sadly.

      Thanks SO much for being here!
