Anthropologie: Folklore Tunic, Ria Dropwaist Shirtdress, Aliz Dress, Lace Melange Pencil Dress

I hope everyone is ready for a long weekend. I know I am! I have only two things to do this weekend and that’s relax and watch some College Football. Football and Basketball – Those are the two sports seasons I cannot wait for. I’m not really into watching baseball over the Summer but it was great to have the Olympics hold my attention for two weeks. I also think I will try to go back into Anthropologie and peruse the sale section. This time there is 40% off all sale items. I reviewed the Chiffon Clipdot Dress, which is on sale, and there is a dress in these reviews that also went on sale.

~ Foxiedox Farfara Dress, Medium ~

I liked the colors, shape and fit of this dress until I noticed the lace panel on the chest shows your bra. You’ll either need to wear a strapless bra or some type of convertible bra or add a cami. It’s a synthetic material which make it machine washable but I think this would be so much prettier in silk, especially at the price point it’s at.


~ Holding Horses Folklore Tunic, size 6 ~

This tunic dress looked huge on the hanger so I grabbed a size 6. I probably should have taken an size 4 with me to the dressing room. Honestly, this is shapeless, unflattering and the fit is huge. The chambray portion is washed out and not as saturated as the online image. Anthro usually gets those things right and there isn’t much difference between online images and IRL in-store. The embroidery is pretty but it’s definitely not worth $200. Thing is, people like this dress. There are 15 reviews averaging almost 4 stars.


~ Maeve Ria Dropwaist Shirtdress, size 8 ~

The print on this shirtdress is just the cutest. And I love the colors as well. It’s so perfect for Fall and Winter. It looks big on the hanger but there wasn’t a size 6 to try on so I am wearing the size 8. I definitely need the size 6. The arms and chest are really loose and the waist is huge. I love the length and  I can definitely see myself wearing this a lot.


~ NUE by Shani Aliz Dress, Bright Red, size 8 ~

I saw this dress on the hanger a few weeks ago and couldn’t wait to go back and try it on. It looks so pretty in the red with the laser cutouts and nude underlining. This fits TTS with the 8 fitting just perfect. It also comes in black, if you are looking for a lovely alternative to your LBD.


~ Byron Lars Lace Melange Pencil Dress, size 8 ~

This may be the year I finally purchase a Byron Lars dress. The Carissima Sheath always seemed too sheer due to the nude underlining. But this dress is lovely in person. It’s very lacy which I don’t really wear but it fits like a dream. There’s a detachable belt and a back zip.


There are so many pretty things at Anthropologie right now. I added quite a bit to my wishlist.

Are you shopping the Anthropologie sale this weekend?

    I really like the dresses you chose – they are all quite flattering. Even though the first one has the “bra problem” (seriously, does no one wear a bra anymore?), I love the retro look of it. You look great in that red one too. Thanks for the reviews!

    I actually really like the folklore dress on you! But I agree…it’s definitely not worth $200. The Maeve is my favorite, as their dresses usually are…

    Great picks! Love that red dress on you, as well as the Maeve shirtdress. The Bryson L is also very va-va-voom, flattering fit. I also think the dress with the chest window has a flattering silhouette, though it’s so annoying when issues like the bra showing aren’t taken into consideration. Grrr!
