Not looking for anything in particular, I grabbed a few skirts and dresses to try on during my trip to Anthropologie.
~ Astin Wrap Skirt, Small, Blue, Bailey 44 ~
I could have fit into a Medium in this skirt but I like the snug, shapely fit of the Small. Bailey 44 always does a good bodycon dress and skirt and this is no exception. There’s a piece of vegan leather at the front wrap. The top portion of the wrap is sown to the main part of the skirt preventing it from flying open during a windy day.
~ Garden Glimmer Skirt, size 8, HD in Paris ~
I liked the green of this skirt and the gold shimmery squares make is nice for a Holiday party or Christmas dinner. The size 8 fit well and hit just above my knee. It could be a little shorter on some taller ladies.
~ Pieced Suede Skirt, size 8, Leifsdottir ~
I loved the blue of this suede skirt. Leifsdottir always makes some nice pieces. There’s a shorter piece of the skirt that hits above the knee with a split longer piece hitting midi length on me. There are two buckles on the right side but this actually zips up the back. The 8 was a nice fit with just a touch of room.
~ Larkin Dress, size 8, Moulinette Soeurs ~
This was a dress that was in the Fashion show and I just happened upon it afterwards. I quite loved it on and was surprised it wasn’t made by Bailey 44 but Moulinette Soeurs. The middle piece is very flattering in creating a waist and I didn’t notice the lace panels at the arms until I turned to the side. You’ll probably need a black bra with this to match the lace.
~ Novelette Dress, size 8, Moulinette Soeurs ~
Another pretty Moulinette Soeurs dress for a party I only imagine. The size 8 was a little off as the part where the sheer met the bodice was a little low. This is also a pull-over dress as there’s an open diamond back with a button on the top and a side zip. The embroidered bird motif is really nice. Since there is a sheer panel at the bottom the midi-length works for me.
Overall, these were a pass for me, even though the dresses were 25% off at the time. I did add the Larkin Dress to my wishlist though I’m not sure where I’d wear it.
Have you tried any of these items?
