These are just a couple of things I’ve picked up at Anthropologie over the last few months. The Fashion Show last week aided in some of these purchases.
Smocked Malee Dress, 6 – I have wanted this dress since I saw it in the catalog but I kept passing on it because I heard the smocking didn’t give very well. Then I would change my mind when one of my favorite SA’s would wear it (hi Michelle!). Once my mother saw the dress she said I had to get it. I was able to order this in both the 6 and 8 when the 15% off was going on the day before Mother’s Day. The 6 fits great and the smocking in the shoulders is not uncomfortable at all. Also, I don’t feel this is any shorter than some of my favorite J Crew mini skirts I have.
The back seems a little longer than the front.
Swiss Dot Shirtdress
, Green, 8 – This was a dress I saw on another customer and grabbed my size to try it on. The color reads more of a Teal than a true green and the hue is very pretty. I had to size to an 8 because the bust pulled and gaped open. The 8 did a little but switching to a thinner, non-padded bra helped with that. I added my Louboutin Puglia Espadrilles
and my white enamel link bracelet from Etsy
for an office day.
Lidia Embroidered Dress
by Moulinette Soeurs, 6 – This was an anniversary gift, sort of. Husband had rushed in because he “miscalculated” our anniversary date (in other words, he forgot.)
He grabbed the Provencal Blouse
but it fit a little tight in the shoulders and was 100% Polyester. I exchanged the blouse for this dress but since one of the little flowers was snagged I ordered it online through the store. I was lucky enough to get a PA as this dress is now on sale, and for $8 less than the blouse. I saved Husband some money! I am able to wear the size 6 as the back has some elastic to stretch a little more. I love this dress and it will be coming with me on my trip. I wore it to work with the J Crew Factory Summer-Weight Cardigan
in White and my Navy Cece’s. I removed the cardigan and changed to my Seville Chambray Espadrilles
for the Anthropologie Fashion Show.
Nimbin Peasant Blouse
by Tolani, XS – I fell in love with this blouse after seeing this on the cute SA from the Fashion Show
. This blouse runs small. This is a flowy blouse and depending on how you want wear it will depend on if you go down one or two sizes. I decided to go down two sizes to the XS but the Small fit well too. I wore this with my JC Pleated Shorts
in White and my TB Thora in Lizard
for a friend’s birthday.
Pompom Crest Tee by Meadow Rue, S – This is one of those embellished tees that is just oh-so-comfy. I sized to a Small as I wanted it to be a little less flowy. Depending on your preference of fit you can go with your normal size or down one. The material is a little thin but not like the Linen tees. The embellishment and pompoms are so adorable. It’s so comfortable I wanted to sleep in it.
Key Lime Apron – I just noticed this went on sale too. I am not lucky with PAs but this will be 3 all at once. That’s pretty awesome. I have a waist apron but not a full-length one. I bought this anticipating whether or not I would receive one for Mother’s Day (I did). But now that it’s on sale and I’ll get a PA I will probably keep it. It’s very cute and green (fave!).
Parley Weels by Holding Horses, 7 – Kind of high, yes, but the platform helps manage that. These were also used in the Fashion Show and you can see them on me in the first two images above. I love the mix of the cork and wood together.
Anything catch your eye? There are lots of great Fresh Cuts
for this week!
Have a Great Day!
