Rated 5 out of 5┬áby jade777 Cute Top!
As soon as this top showed up in my local Anthropologie, I tried it on. I liked it and bought it. The online picture had convinced me that I liked the lighter colored one better. However, in person, I liked the dark grey better. Another customer trying both of them on, also bought the dark grey. We agreed that it was richer looking and the lighter one made both of us look washed out.
The other things that surprised me about this top when trying it on were: 1. The back lace flatters the bum because it gently cups just under the rear-end; 2. The front does not do much for the figure since it lies loosely; 3. The sleeves are very pretty;4. The colors in the dark grey top match better than they look online and; 5. Inspite of being an acrylic body and polyester lace back (I hate acrylic and polyester) this top IS comfortable to wear.
This top runs TTS. I've been taking a size XS lately in Anthro sweaters - and I did also in this top. For reference I am; 119 lbs, 36-27-36, 5'4". The size XS fit me exactly like it did on the online model. Also, Warning; you cannot steam the lace in the back because you will steam out the pleats. However it is very easy to press the wrinkles out and the pleats in - using an iron on the SYNTHETIC setting (or you will melt the lace).

I can't believe how beautiful this sweater is!! I was in my local Anthro yesterday and took 9 or 10 things into the fitting room with me. This one was such an obvious keeper!!! It is one of the best purchases I've made at anthropologie. It is a fine knit sweater top, with embroidered lace sleeves. I absolutely love the look of long lace sleeves. The front looks like a simple crew neck top, but what makes it unique is the pleated back. I'll be honest... Had I just seen it online, I probably would've passed right over it. I really didn't think I could pull off the pleats. But in trying it on, I saw how nicely they lay, and I loved it!! I tried on my usual Medium, but sized down to a Small which fit better. I'm 5'8 and 150 lbs. This has a vintage, romantic feel to it. Yet it pairs nicely with skinny jeans and boots. I bought the Sand color, which is 1000 times more beautiful in person. I didn't hesitate to spend the $ at full price...it was worth every cent!

Such a beautiful top. It was sold out online and at my local Anthro, so I called every store in California until I found one in my size and in the grey color. I am so happy that I did, because it is absolutely beautiful. My only complaints are that it does run a bit big and the sleeves are so delicate that I am afraid that they will eventually snag.
I purchased the top in large, but I am second guessing that decision and I may try and find it in a medium instead. I would recommend sizing down. For reference, I am 5-7, usually wear a large top, and have a smaller bust and wider hips. It is very flattering and makes my bust look larger.
