Quick PSA: The Climbing Cowlneck is back online....


Thanks to Merula, who let me know that the Climbing Cowlneck ($48) is back online. Purple only for the time-being. I have gotten tons of questions about this one -- read the review here.

OMG what do I do??? I am on a shopping ban until March 1st :(. I WANT THIS TOP!!! I got $25 gifted to me last week from the Grandma, if it was $48 this top would be on the way as I write this. So. Moral dillema here. Thanks for the info though you guys are SO awesome!

To share some good news, I just got my Floreat Partly Cloudy top in the mail. It fit perfect, is NWT, and I got it for $42 including shipping (it's STILL at $88 online + shipping)!

Ooh, straight to the wishlist!

Sharon said...

thanks!

Sharon - I think the Climbing Cowlneck runs a little on the large side. It's difficult to judge because it's fitted through the waist but there's a lot of fabric at the top. I went with my usual size (small) and I've been happy with it, but I might have been able to go down a size.

Sharon said...

Thanks Lola! I wonder if it will be at my local store so i can actually try it on....

Pascale said...

I got mine a while back in grey and it does look dark blue. LOve it

Sharon said...

Meli22-how did you score the Partly Cloudy top for $42? I love that top...is it on sale in store and not online?

roxy said...

Hi Sharon -- I think you need to go to the store and try this one. My point in the review is that the shirt run was inconsistent. Mediums did not fit the same, larges did not fit the same, etc. If you are not near a store I'd go for your normal size.

roxy said...

@Lola - um, hello hottie on page 2!! Why did he get cut out of the product shot? ;)

Carly said...

Hey Roxy! I was just wondering if you've seen/tried on the Wright dress... I've been eyeing it up, but haven't heard much about it! I'm also interested in the Landing Fields skirt, Grasslands dress, and Marzipan shoes. If you have any advice I'd appreciate it! I can probably only splurge on 2 of the items, but because I can't see anything IRL or try anything on, it's hard to make that decision on my own!

Naomi said...

I bought the Climbing Cowlneck in both colors because it is SO flattering and lovely. The Austin Anthro has lots of these in both colors. I am either a XS or S in tops and the Cowlneck XS was perfect and the S was too large, so I would definitely say this top is more generous in size.

Archana said...

Sorry to jump in here Roxy, but I wanted to attempt to help Carly out.

Carly, I tried both the Landing Fields Skirt & the Marzipan flats at my store. Both the skirt & shoes were TTS for me.
The skirt on me did not look anything like how it does on the model. But it looks exactly like the pictures, I mean the color and print. It gave me no shape at all. :(
I was so excited to try the shoes on, but as soon as I took them out, there was a really strong chemical smell. It print looks more vibrant than the online pictures. I tried my normal size, 7.5, and it fit well. The shoes are cute looking, but the smell put me off completely. Oh, and the ankle strap seemed a tad big on me, but than can be remedied.

Hope this helps.

I got the partly cloudy top from this lady (not an ebay transaction) http://myworld.ebay.com/donutsandlotterytickets?ssPageName=ADME:X:CEM:US:1181


actually she send me a 4 AND a 6- the 6 was big on me. She'll sell it for $42 shipped I bet if anyone is interested- I have to return it to her, I could just have you pay her via paypal and I could send it to whoever wanted it. I'll have to check with her, but let me know if you would be interested!

roxy said...

Hi Carly! I have not made it to the store this week (I know, I know) because work has been very busy. However I will try to review those items this weekend!

Archana - you're not jumping on me at all, I appreciate you stepping in since you have the info. :)

Carly said...

Thanks so much Archana!! That's very helpful and I appreciate it :)

Thanks, Roxy!

f.y.i.
Just called Anthro. c.s. and she told me no stores in CA have the climbing cowlneck in black and only 2 stores in the state (S.F. and Beverly Hills) received the top in purple. She also stated that as far as she could tell they were not expecting more shipments of the black color. Since I don't live near either one of those stores I will have to suck it up and pay for shipping.

Debbie said...

I called my store (Pasadena, CA) and they said they expect to receive it in the next two weeks. I didn't specify color since I would buy it in purple or gray. So I think I'll wait to try it on in the store.

amers72 said...

Thanks Debbie for the update. Think I will wait it out and see if my local store gets a shipment in the next few weeks.

Tina said...

Hi Roxy! I've been "quietly" following your blog everyday, and I must say your reviews are especially helpful! (especially since I don't have a car and can't readily run off to Anthro to try on new arrivals)

I simply couldn't take the risk of the Climbing Cowlneck top running out in stock. I've never tried it on before... but I went ahead and ordered an XS. Will let you (and everyone else) know how it fits! Thanks for the PSA!
