Anthropologie “Surprise”

Anthropologie has a nice little promo for us this weekend. With code SURPRISE you can take $20 off every $100 you spend. There are a lot of fun things to choose from and I’ve been looking at all the pretty blouses that Anthropologie has in abundance.

During the 20% off a few weeks ago, my store had a Style Event. I was able to try on, and buy, a few things for the upcoming Spring and Summer.

~ Hei Hei LaRue Off-the-Shoulder Romper, Small ~

I really liked the colors and pattern on this OTS Romper. It originally felt a little like a heavy linen but the material is questionable, and hot, with a mix of poly/wool/cotton and a poly lining. The small fit well and the shoulders seemed to stay put as I moved around. I can see myself looking at this again when it goes on sale.

~ Bailey 44 Joanna Top, Navy, Small ~

I find that I size down in Bailey 44 items usually so it’s TTS for the brand. I liked the concept of the twisted hem and it fits fine but seems a little boring, even with the twisted hem. I have plenty of tees but this is on sale plus an additional 25% off.

~ Sunday in Brooklyn Pirouette Open-Shoulder Blouse, Small ~

This is a really flowy blouse and I feel because of that it does run big. I originally tried on a Medium and was swallowed up in it. The Small fits better but still flowy through the body. I like my OTS blouses I have but was a little leery of the “cold-shoulder” or “open-shoulder” ones. I liked this one and did find another I loved even more. I’m on board with this trend for the Spring and Summer!

~ Moon River Embroidered Gingham Top, Small ~

I grabbed this to try on because I liked the embroidery on this but it runs wide and is over-sized. Drop down one size for this top. The price is right for this top and I would take another look at it when it goes on sale. Bonus that it is lined through the body.

~ Eri + Ali Floral Texture Blouse, White, Medium ~
~ Pilcro Utility High-Rise Cropped Wide-Leg Jean, size 29 ~

~ Floral Texture Blouse, White, Medium ~

I loved this blouse on the hanger and once I tried it on. The detail at the shoulder and arms are so cute and it’s made of 100% Linen, which I love for Summer. The only issue was I felt it was still a little big in the Medium.

~ Pilcro Utility High-Rise Cropped Wide-Leg Jean, size 29 ~

You know I love wide-leg anything and I had to try these on. They also fit pretty well but I felt they had enough stretch in them that I could try sizing down. That little red bandana comes with the jean and is re-moveable.

~ Floral Texture Blouse, White, Small ~

The Small is still wide and blousy, and I know you can’t really tell, but it still fits a lot better than the Medium. I find it comfortable but chic and have already worn this a few times, including taking it on my Vegas trip last weekend. I tucked in the front in jeans to give it a little more shape. I also like that I can still wear a normal bra and not a strapless one. Reviews on this are not good at all but I guess I am the exception. So much that I will be getting this in the Mango color as well. I see myself wearing both quite a bit from now until Fall!

~ Pilcro Utility High-Rise Cropped Wide-Leg Jean, size 28 ~

The size 28 is a much better fit due to the stretch and high-waist. I love the wide-leg and they are cropped on me. YAY! I bought these as well and have worn them with the Floral Texture Blouse a few times.

I really love my two purchases and can’t wait to wear them again. I know this SURPRISE promo isn’t much, as 20% off would be a lot better, but it’s still something, right?

What’s caught your eye at Anthropologie lately?

    Tip – Anthropologie online sells nearly all pants/jeans in petite and the only difference is length. I bought those cute wide leg jeans this week and they’re perfect – I’m just shy of 5’4″. So try ’em on instore to make sure the waist, hips and such fit, but then have them order you the petite at the register and you’ll get free shipping vs. truly buying on their site when you get home.

      Thanks Kelly. I am glad to hear the difference is just in length. I know J.Crew Petite also has a smaller waist or bust than the regular size. I’ll remember to order from the store when I need a petite now.
