I recently orderd some Anthro clothing on my wishlist to try out, the Smocked Malee Dress and the Novelty Collar Tee.
The Smocked Malee Dress by Moulinette Soeurs is not for everyone, but when you see it, you'll know it's right up my alley. The reviews are up and down on it, mostly due to issues with the tight smocking at the arms/up top, and also some people feeling that it looks like a sack. I tried it on in a 0 and a 2, and the 0 was too tight in the arms, and the 2 was fine. Is it a bit sack-like? Yep, and that's the look and I dig it. It's short, so it's going to be worn with cropped jeans or leggings. Too short as a dress for me, except it would be cute to wear to the pool. The detail and embroidery is really well done and beautiful. The lining is cotton with some crochet at the bottom, a nice detail. It's pricey, I think b/c it's been deemed a dress. An inch longer, and maybe I'd agree that it's a dress. Still, I think it's a lovely piece.
The Novelty Collar Tee caught my attention right away, with it's darling Paris city print, and the swiss dot peter pan collar. The black takes the sweetness of it down a notch, and I liked that the collar was a bit bigger in scale. The length was great on this one, and it's super comfortable. If you look closely, you can see the spots of blue are little cats. :) Love it.
Have you been to Anthro recently? Anything catching your eye?
Have a great day!
