Anthropologie Birthday Haul

I received my Anthropologie birthday discount in the mail a few days ago. I have had my eye on a few things (this and this and this) online and was hoping at least one of those was in my store. The Boy was getting a haircut so I wandered over to Anthro to “browse”. I didn’t find anything on my list during my first walk-around so I grabbed a few other things I was interested in, including the Gull Wing Dress by Girls from Savoy in plum.

I’ve tried this on before in the red and loved it. I felt really sexy in it. I think the plum is a much better color for me but also grabbed the black polka dots too.

Wearing a size 6

OMGEEEE…totally in love with this dress. Even if I didn’t have my birthday discount I would have bought this. I feel more amazing in this dress in the plum than I did in the red. I didn’t even try on the polka dot one. This is a perfect dress for our super hot (95+) and getting hotter weather.

As I was in the dressing room, one of the SAs showed me the Back View Dress. I guess they had just received it because I didn’t see it on the floor. It’s on my wishlist so I tried it on. This is such a pretty dress with beautiful vibrant colors throughout. I ended up with a Small. I didn’t even notice the side zip until I tried it on again at home. (I was able to fit it over my head with ease without unzipping it.) It’s currently sold out online so if you are interested in it call the stores.

Lastly, I tried on the Bosky Lace Skirt in Green. I’m not sure what’s with me but I have been drawn to lace crochet lately (here and here). And green is my favorite color. This is a size 8 and has a slightly loose fit. A size 6 would have been a little snug over the hips, so an 8 is fine by me.

So, as you can see, my Anthropologie discount card didn’t last two days into June. But!…I was surprised to receive an email from Anthro yesterday with another discount that I can use online. Yay! My store doesn’t carry shoes so I’ve found a few I like and it also didn’t have some of these vases I’ve been eyeing.

Have a great night!

    Must. have. back. view. dress.

    okay, not that that's out of my system, the plum gull wing is perfection with your skin tone! When you love something the minute you put it on, you must purchase it or live with regret!

    Oh, that plumb gull wing dress is the prettiest dress I've seen in a long time. I will have to visit the local Anthro and try it on but the full skirt probably won't work for me. It is stunning on you though.

    The back view dress is really unique quite eye-catching but the gull wing is much nicer IMO.

    You look radiant. I looove the 1st dress on you and the 2nd one is divine as well. As you know, I base my sizing off of you & coloring a little bit, too. Your reviews are very helpful 🙂

    Gigi – Thank you! And you're right after me!

    Yogagirl – Oooh…I like that necklace. I think it will actually go great with my Horkelia shift. Very colorful and tribal to off-set the dainty crochet. Thanks!
