Anthropologie Blouses and a Dress

I am drawn to kimono/dolman/butterfly sleeves on blouses. I feel like floating away in those tops. Seems that Anthropologie knows of my weakness as they have two styles of blouses with these sleeves currently.

Tsuru Blouse by Maeve – Size 8, Comes in Wine and Navy. I sized up to an 8 only because the lower part of the blouse was a little snug but I do recommend getting your normal size in this. The top part fits well across my chest and doesn’t pull. it has a side zipper. Purchase

Geo-Feather Blouse by Fei – Sz M. Again, I sized up to a Medium due to the snugness at the waist. I like the colors and pattern on this one but $98 for “dry-clean poly” is a bit much. I’ll be returning this and waiting for it to go to sale to purchase because I do like it. Sees the Sale Wishlist

Hip Cinched Blouse by Maeve – Size 6, Comes in Green and Gold. I never paid attention to this blouse online because the feature color is Gold. The yellow seemed kind of bland to me from the online picture but I saw the green on the rack behind the gold and was drawn to it because of the color. I like the “hip cinch” but I’m not sure about the bow. Also, this is very loose on top while the waist is cut a little slimmer. Because of this, the top portion does slip down and doesn’t stay put. The color is gorgeous and I like silhouette. I’m think I’ll wait for a sale on this one though. STS Wishlist
Lemon Liftoff Blouse by Girls from Savoy – Sz 8, I am a huge fan of GFS. This cute owl-print blouse with the neck tie is adorable and whimsy. I consistently wear a size 6 in GFS but had to size up to an 8 due to the tightness around my arms. That’s my only complaint. It fit everywhere else in the size 6 so take your normal size. Will purchase soon

Flori Dress by Girls from Savoy – Sz 6, This is such a beautiful, floaty, flowy “old-school” style dress. I do wish it was about two inches shorter for me (5’2”) but it will love even more lovely on those who are taller than me. Pass

Are you interested in any of these?

    I like the Tsuru blouse, I'm a sucker for pink. The fit seems really nice, very flattering and the color is gorgeous.

    What is the blue skirt you are wearing? Is that the bright blue pencil from J.Crew seasons past or something else? I love it!

    The colors must be off on my monitor but I think the top would be great in a darker shade like wine or burgundy too.

    Now I am checking out the skirt, it's really nice and looks like the perfect piece for tropical vacations. I have a few things by Velvet and they are favorites in my wardrobe. Would you mind sharing which size you took in the skirt? I wonder if I should order it or try and find it in-store while I'm in the U.S. next week.

    The Hip Cinched Blouse looks very flattering on you. I was in the store today and the green blouse also caught my eye.

    xoxo – I am wearing a Small in the blue and I bought an XS in the grey. There isn't much difference in the sizing. Normally I'm a 6-8 in bottoms. It's also lined which is great.

    Rose – Thank you. It is a very pretty green and I don't have this shade in my closet.
