I was sent a survey from Anthropologie last week and upon completion received a 15% off promo code. MamaBella wanted me to order a dress for her so I decided to check the store to see if there was anything I wanted as well. I grabbed random dresses to try on along with the one MamaBella wanted.
~ Left Coast Ribbed Flare Dress, by Dolan, Navy, Small ~
I really liked this dress. It’s a pullover fit-and-flare dress and of the other colors I saw online (white, red, mint) the navy is the prettiest with the heathered look. The Small was definitely the best fit. The length is a few inches above my knee but I see this as a casual summer dress for outdoor BBQs or food truck park visits.
~ Butterfly Garden Midi Dress by Pankaj & Nidhi, size 10P ~
My store had a Petite size returned so I grabbed that instead of a size 8. Though I didn’t try on the size 8 I liked the fit of the 10P really well. I’m a sucker for butterflies and I love the print. I wish it came in a top too. The neckline is beaded and the midi length is high-low. Because of that, the lining stops around the knee.
~ Semele Shirtdress by Tiny, Small ~
I’ve tried on various versions of this shirtdress by Tiny. I find that the chest and waist fit fine while the upper arms are a little tight. Still I would stay with the Small in this dress. I don’t buy much long-sleeve in Spring unless it’s linen. Had this been offered in Fall, I probably would have been more interested in it.
~ Soha Maxi Dress by Floreat, Small ~
This is the dress MamaBella wanted. I usually find Floreat to run small on me but the reviews were consistent in stating this dress ran big. The Small fit me TTS to a little loose but is pretty comfortable. The maxi length hits just above the floor on me, which I love. Normally maxi dresses are dragging the floor and I don’t even consider them due to the alterations I’ll need to have done. It is a bit of a sack but I don’t think it’s too voluminous. Pockets are an added bonus. I bought MamaBella the Medium.
~ Agueda Shirtdress by Varun Bahl, Pink, Small ~
The color of this dress caught my eye so I took it to the fitting room with me. It looked like it ran a little big so I tried on the Small. Though there are buttons in the front, the only way to put this on is over your head. There isn’t another side zip or back zip to make it a little more accessible to get on or off. I didn’t have an issue putting this on, but taking it off was a completely different matter. No amount of wiggling was getting me out. I finally tugged at the sleeves a little and was finally able to pull the dress off. For me, that’s the only con. I though this dress was really cute. I love the pink over the black and white I saw online. Some reviews don’t like that the shoulders have a little puff but I don’t mind that at all. It gives the dress just a little more subtle character. The sleeves are 3/4-length and the length is just above my knee. I think the Medium Petite would have helped a little in the upper arms but otherwise I liked the Small. Only one other issue I found, for this specific dress, was the neckline seemed really exposed. I then noticed it was missing a button. I guess it popped off when someone else tried it on. I just exchanged it on the floor with one that had all the buttons and brought it home with me. I have no idea if I’ll keep it but I can’t stop looking at it.
