Anthropologie: Tied Silk Top, Mariposa Silk Culottes, Cascade Blouse, Lucille Tie-Neck Top, Vespertine Skirt

Some of the next items from Anthropologie stopped me in my tracks and I wanted the pieces immediately without trying them on. The first two are Anthrpologie exclusives with a beautiful Butterfly print.

I first saw the Culottes below with this Butterfly print and then found this top in the same print. The size 8 fit fine, not great or amazing. It pulls over but does have a few buttons in front as well as the decorative silk tie. The button just under the chest along the widest part of my rib-cage was just a little snug but not uncomfortable.
The back is open at the top and the silk tie still goes around/lays on the neck. It feels a little odd to have some exposure but then material at the neckline. The sleeves are nice and flowy and of course the print on the silk is gorgeous. I added the size 8 to my wishlist.
~ Elevenses Mariposa Silk Culottes, size 8 ~

These culottes are what first stopped me in my tracks. These wide-leg culottes are made from a beautiful silk and in a fantastic print. I tried on the size 8 and they fit very loose everywhere but were still cropped. The online model image shows these hitting a few inches below the knee, not just above the ankle bone. Though I’m usually a size 8 in Elevenses, I think the size 6 would fit since there really was plenty of room at the waist and hips.
~ Meadow Rue Cascade Blouse, Taupe, Medium ~
The taupe color went well with the Culottes. Because of the loud print I would stick to a neutral color on top. It fit perfect in the Medium and draped really well. I wouldn’t tuck it in as the ruffle looks a little odd that way. It’s a great little blouse that can be worn with dressy pants or casually with jeans and a cardi.
~ Dolan Lucille Tie-Neck Tee, White, Small ~

I was looking for a white top to try on with the Vespertine Skirt and chose this one by Dolan. The small is snug in the arms so I would size to a medium. There is a little hook in front to close up some of v-neck to hide the exposed cleavage. It’s a pass for me. I’m not in need of another version of a white tee.
I love the contrasting interior of this skirt that the low-high hemline highlights. It’s what immediately caught my eye.
There was no 8 to try on so I grabbed the 6. I wasn’t able to zip it all the way up and where it stopped makes me think the size 8 may not zip all the way either. Because of the low-high hemline I don’t mind this midi skirt. The front hits just below the knee and the back is just below the calf. Wearing heels will help elongate the legs as well.  
The Vespertine Skirt is one you definitely need to try on if you see it in-store. I highly recommend it.

Happy Shopping!
