Anthropologie: Embroidered Bleuet Midi Top, Embroidered Bleuet Pencil Skirt, Sweetwater Dress, Rhododendron Dress, Stet Slim Ankle Jeans, Stevie Ankle Jean

Here’s the second set of reviews with some dresses and denim.

Embroidered Bleuet Midi Top & Pencil Skirt, by Moulinette Soeurs ~ 

The top in this pic is a size 6 and the skirt is an 8. I loved this when it originally showed up online but was a little worried the top was too cropped. It works well with the skirt though. The top is too snug and cut in at the shoulders and arms.

The skirt in the size 8 was perfect, though could use just a little Spanxing. There’s a little ruffle on the back of the skirt that I hadn’t noticed until I took the side shot. It just makes the skirt even more unique.

This is a size 10 top. There wasn’t a size 8 to try-on but I really liked the fit of the 10. Much better looking than the size 6.

Sweetwater Dress, Size 8, by Yoana Baraschi ~ 

I really wanted this dress to work but I couldn’t even get the back zipped all the way up. That’s usually the case for me with strapless dresses. The print is beautiful and I would be tempted to buy it on sale and have it made into a skirt. It’s just so lovely and will look wonderful on anyone else but me. Oh well, not everything is going to work. That’s what try-ons are for.

Rhododendron Dress, Size 8, by Moulinette Soeurs ~ 

I was immediately attracted to this lovely bright pink dress. The size 8 was perfect. Not too snug across the chest and a little wiggle room in the waist. And it has pockets! A beautiful dress for a Summer wedding and would work for the office with a little cardigan.

Because all jeans fit differently, when I find a pair that fits off the rack, without alterations, I usually buy them. These were also on sale, so for me a no-brainer to add to my closet. As much as I hate to admit it, jeans are a big part of my daily uniform in Fall and Winter.

AG Stevie Ankle Jean, Size 29 ~ 

These were a good fit but would need to be hemmed. The ankle opening was also a little small. I know the Stevie is a popular item but I can never find a pair I feel great in. I think with these, I need a darker wash and a higher rise, like the Ankle High-Rise Jean.

I did place an order last Saturday during Anthro Day so I’ll have a review of those items as soon as they arrive.

    The Embroidered top and pencil skirt are absolutely stunning. I loved this outfit when I first saw it on-line, too. If I had somewhere to wear it,I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I also love the pink dress. I hadn't noticed this one, but it's really pretty on you. Very versatile, like you suggested.
    Thanks for the reviews, looking forward to seeing what you got during the promo.

      Thanks Maryeb! I ended up buying the Top and Pencil Skirt but Husband HATES the top so I ended up returning them. 🙁 I couldn't really think of another top to go with the skirt other than White or Navy Blue. I probably would have only worn it once a year and I'm trying to stay away from that.

      I did buy the Pilcro jeans and have worn them a few times already. I didn't buy any of the tops I reviewed but will probably go back for the Cartography Buttondown. I think it will look good with jeans and cords.
