It’s a good morning for new arrivals

Reveille Jacket ($128)
My wish list replacement for the Skirted Peacoat.

Anthropologie continues to roll out their holiday collection. This morning’s new arrivals is not a huge release but it is certainly packed with amazing items! I’ve chosen some of my favorites to highlight in this post; see them all the new clothing here. There were also a few new additions to the sale section, mostly focusing on home items this week.

Green With Envy Jacket ($148)
How fun would this be over a party dress or work wear?

Teleidoscope Top ($88)
The unknown Tracey Reese top from the other day
gets a proper name. (review here)

Moon Phase Tank ($78)
The best impressions of Diana
start with these glorious folds.
Needlepoint Niceties Tank ($68)
Artful rendering in brown, gold and copper.
Flourishing Obi Tank ($88)
For those that want something a little different
under suits and blazers, here’s a modern shell.
Tuck it under a cardigan for a more casual
(but still beautiful) look.
Plaid Perfection Blouse ($88)
It’s hard to associate something this pretty with neo-grunge.
Beaded Path Tee ($68)
Simple but not staid, this is a shirt for all seasons.
Reverie Top ($98)
Overpowering shoulders? Or pretty cascade of pleated ruffles?
See it on Tien here.
Manisa Dress ($178)
Everything about the bodice says perfection to me.
Oscillations Cardigan ($98)
Yet another take on the ruffled placket,
this one toned down considerably.
Tempting Trellis Cardigan ($98)
The simple elegance of this cardigan has me drooling.
Ossified Sweatercoat ($178)
A closer cut that will lead to a more tailored look.
AG Durini Stilt ($150)
Ask and ye shall receive.
I wanted the Stilt in a darker, uniform wash,
and Anthropologie has provided.
Thunder Sketch Skirt ($128)
Jersey embellished — with an embellished price tag to match.
Finally, a skirt that will not gap at my waist even in true size!

    Flourishing Obi – love everything but the low-cutness. There are so many items I pass on just because of cleavage.

    Hi Roxy! I'm drooling right there with you on the Tempting Trellis cardigan…I've been wanting a really femenine cardigan and I'm thinking this is the one…

  3. November 12, 2009 / 4:16 pm

    It is probably just me, but some 3/4 or long sleeves would be nice. I am not much of a layer-er. Most times I am too hot for a cardigan/sweater even with sleeveless underneath. I also like one stop dressing (much like I like one-stop shopping). Easy. Still, I do like that first jacket (I usually end up wearing blazer-like jackets as outerwear) and the long, dark cardigan….

    Roxy,Have you ever seen the Zipline cardigan in any stores? I like it online but haven't found it in the four stores I've been to….?

    Anonymous – I completely understand. I also prefer not to do low-cut tops unless they are night-on-the-town tops. I want to try on the Flourishing Obi to see just where it hits.Sharon – Hopefully it will be in-store soon to try on! Georgine – I used to be anti-layer, but since I started working in large office buildings where I have no control over the temperature I've had to adapt. Jenn – I have and I did try it on, but I didn't have my camera with me. I found it true to size. One problems with it for me: it's very coarse wool. So it scratched against my arms (but not in an itchy way if that makes any sense). I didn't think the shape would be flattering on me but it was. If I see it again I will snap pics for a review this weekend!

    How do you stop yourself from buying all these cute things? Whenever I read your blog or Kim's, I just want to go out and get more clothes after I swore to myself that the last purchase was my last purchase.

    BTW — I had to return the Party Petal skirt. You were was still too big even at size 0. Too bad because I thought the print and draping was beautiful.

  8. November 12, 2009 / 5:07 pm

    Diem, quite honestly part of the reason why I'm going on a budget is because sometimes I can't stop myself from buying these cute things. It is pretty deadly writing this blog in some ways. They key is moderation, a practice I have not been good at in the past few months.I'm sorry the Party Petal Skirt didn't work out for you! I don't know why Anna Sui for Anthropologie items run so large, but hopefully they will correct this.

    I do have a couple of other Anna Sui for Anthropologie skirts and they fit TTS. They were spring/summer skirts and the cut was more fitted at the waist. Oh well, that just means I have more money to spend on something else at Anthropologie!I'm an addict right now :). I keep thinking that since I'm relatively new to Anthro that the addiction will eventually wear off. What do you think? Does it just get worse?

  10. November 12, 2009 / 5:20 pm

    It only gets worse. 😉

    That's what I suspected :).

    The Flourishing Obi tank WILL be mine. Period. The End. There is nothing more to say. Thanks for the great pictures and commentary Roxy!

  13. November 12, 2009 / 5:27 pm

    Diem and Roxy– if you ladies come up with a method to stop buying items, please share! I'm afraid to go over my bank statement for the last couple of months. Anthro's fall items destroyed me, whereas I hated much of their spring and summer line.I really like the Green with Envy Jacket. I have a pair of lace fingerless gloves that would go perfectly with it.

    Tien — This is my first Fall season with Anthro and their sweaters are gorgeous. I think that what gets me. I would like to see more long sleeves items..then I wouldn't have to spend more money getting a sweater to go on top of the short/sleeveless tops.Roxy — Have you seen a double breasted sweatercoat by Ruffian in your store? My friend brought it last weekend along with the Rare Bloom Tee in pink. These were her first purchase at Anthro. I wanted to look at the sweatercoat more closely on line, but haven't seen it online.

  15. November 12, 2009 / 7:31 pm

    Suzi – Yes! I love it. If you get it before I post a review please let us know how it works out.Tien – Same for me. Was not into the spring/summer stuff as much but I am loving the fall items.Diem – hmm, I don't recall seeing it. It could be out at the NYC Anthros and I just missed it. Their gallery is Ruffian-ed out at the moment at Rockefeller Center, I'll check there on Friday.

  16. November 12, 2009 / 8:52 pm

    Diem – LOL, I can't stop myself from buying stuff at Anthro, so the only logical solution (not buying wasn't logical) was to get a job there 😉 I think that's making it even worse!

  17. November 12, 2009 / 8:57 pm

    Kim–I've thought about getting a job there, but I doubt I can handle tow jobs with all the other side activities going on. I don't know how you're going to manage it, but I am deeply impressed.

    Kim — When I had a second job in retail, I ended up spending all my paycheck and more because of the 40% discount. I think what you should do is just spend your Anthro paycheck at Anthro. Then you won't feel so guilty…But I'm with you. I think it will be hard to resist all their pretty clothes at 40% off!

  19. November 13, 2009 / 11:21 am

    Oooh, I love that Ossified Sweatercoat. So simple, but it looks like it'd be incredibly flattering on the body. *makes grabby hands*

    The Flourishing Obi top is already sold out!?!

  21. November 14, 2009 / 2:01 pm

    Wow. It's possible that Anthropologie took a really small delivery of the top. That is crazy though. Hopefully they can order more if it truly is sold out.
