These reviews are from last weekend and Wednesday after the big sale. I thought I'd see what sale dresses were left and try on a few non-sale dresses. I haven't yet figured out how to post links to Anthropologie's website, but hopefully I'll have that down soon. I'm still getting used to the whole blog thing. Oh and I'm sorry about the horrible I-phone pictures. It's all I had with me!
1. Ablaze Dress-$149.95
I never tried this dress on at full price because I knew I would never buy it, but when it hit sale, I decided to give it a try. I'm usually a 6 in dresses, but my store didn't have a 6 so I grabbed the 8. As you can see, the 8 fits very well (the SA said it ran small), but it is still a little big in the chest (you can't tell from the picture). I tend to have that problem with dresses since I'm small up top. I'd probably buy this in a 6, but I'm hoping to try and find a 6 in another store to try on before I make a final decision. I loved the color of the dress (the SA said orangy red, but it's more tomato to me) and I loved how it felt on. I'm hoping it gets a second cut so I can pick it up. $150 is still a little steep for me!
2. County Fair Dress-$99.95
I had never seen this dress in stores, but it was in my wish list anyway because it looked so cute online! I was hoping it would get another cut so I could order it online. Lucky for me, when I went to my store on Wednesday, they had a return in my size 6! Unfortunately, when I put the dress on, all my excitement was gone. First off, it was a very heavy material. I couldn't imagine wearing that outside in the hot summer! Then, it was too big in the chest, but I really didn't like the dress enough to consider hunting down a 4 in stores. To top it off, I felt like I belonged in a ballet/dance class! It just didn't look or feel how I expected it to, so this one is definitely a pass and off the wish list!
3. New York, New York Dress-$168
I really loved this dress when I saw it on a few other bloggers and was excited to see it in my store last weekend. I knew right away that I probably shouldn't even try the dress on since I probably would never wear it to work (if I buy an Anthro dress I have to be able to wear it to work), but I wanted to try anyway. I loved the vibrant colors and that the dress is unique and different. But I don't like to stand out in a crowd and I feel like this dress would do just that. It was also a little big in the chest, but I feel like the waist would be too tight in the 4. I might come back and consider this one when it goes on sale, but for now it's a pass.
4. State Fair Dress-$138
I grabbed this dress in a 6 (that's what's shown in the picture), but it was too big, so I'd buy it in a 4. I really like the color (a pinky red), the buttons down the front, and the length (above the knee). I didn't like that the dress didn't have a lining (it felt strange on) and the band at the waist felt like it sat a little too high. I think I'd definitely get this on sale though because there are a lot of pros and I could also wear it to work.
5. Wright Dress-$168
I usually don't even try on strapless dresses because I can't hold them up, but when I found out this one had straps that could be added, I decided to give it a try. Also, after all the talk of this dress possibly going on sale last week, I decided I needed to try it on to see what size I would be in case it does go on sale in a few weeks. I grabbed my true size 6, but after trying it on, knew I needed a 4 (fit much better). Overall, I really loved the planes on the dress and I loved the "poof" underneath the dress, but I don't know if the dress loved me. I'm just not sure the color looks good against my skin tone (I usually try to stay away from grays since I'm so fair). I do think it looks better with a cardigan, but I won't want to wear that in the summer. What do you guys think? Also, I might be able to get away with wearing this to work on casual Friday, but I'm not sure about other days.
That's all of my reviews for tonight, but I have plenty more skirt/top reviews from last weekend to share. Let me know what you think!
