It's been ages since I reviewed something at Anthro, hasn't it? I don't know, I just haven't been really wowed by too many things lately. I had some time yesterday to try on a bunch of things in person, just to see if I was wrong to discount items I was seeing online or even glancing at on the hangers.
Pieced Column Dress -- The Bailey 44 dress has been super popular in it's various incarnations (length, sleeves, colors), but I wasn't ready to try it on until I saw it in the shorter length. It looked so skintight to me, that I grabbed a medium, and that size felt very comfortable on me. I tried on a small, and it wasn't that much different really, that I could see. A bit more material in the medium? I definitely see why it's doing so well - it's just so flattering! It feels too va-va-voom for me personally during the day, but it's fab for a hot date night! This could be an option for Vegas, so it's wishlisted. I'm wearing a medium below:
Embossed Basket Dress -- I keep meaning to try this one on, and finally did, hooray! As expected, I really loved this one. I grabbed a small and a medium, b/c I noticed as it was hanging that the medium had a good inch more length to it. The small fit snug (but not too snug) in the bust area (it's stretchy). The medium still fit, just not quite at snug, and the waist fell a bit lower, along with the hemline. It also poofed a bit more at the hips I think. The color is gorgeous! And it felt sweet and pretty and uber-comfy.
Extra length on the medium:
Watercolored Gems Shift -- Ooh, I saw this one from a mile away the second I walked in. The color, the print, the shape, all gorgeous. The v-back makes it a little hotter. ;) I grabbed a size 4 and that was a good fit, so it's TTS. It's somewhat stiff, but not in a bad way, and it's fully lined. Love!
Are any of these dresses on your wishlist? Oh, and btw, love the citron and basil scent of this Illume candle! So fresh and spring-smelling to me.
And how cute are these?! Just for organizing whatever -- paper clips, rubber bands, m&ms...
Have a wonderful day!
