Hi readers! So I popped into Anthropologie yesterday to check out the sale in store (didn't find anything I had to have) and found these two lovelies to try on. I decided to give their reviews their own post (and move them ahead of the other reviews I still have to do) because I loved them that much and they didn't even compare to anything else I tried on or have tried on in the last few weeks. I definitely got that feeling of "I feel awesome in this and have to have it or I'll cry" when I tried both of them on, which is always good :) Enjoy!
Oh Mimetic Skirt (size 6, $88), how I love thee! I seriously never wanted to take this skirt off once I got it on. The silk material is beautiful and very light and airy. The skirt sat a little higher up on my waist, making it fall about 2 inches above my knees. This might make it too short for me to wear to work, but don't worry, I'm sure I can find somewhere else to wear it! I don't own a solid black skirt or a skirt with a tie at the waist, so this will definitely fill a void in my closet. $88 isn't a bad price for a skirt at Anthro, so you may see this in an OOTD sooner rather than later :)
The Sugar and Cream Dress (Size 4, $158) had me smiling from the moment I saw it hanging on the rack. How can you not smile when you see a dress covered in colorful tea cups? My true size 4 fit me perfectly after I tied the bow in the back, but when the bow was untied, the top was a tad big. I honestly don't think anyone else but me would notice though. Lengthwise, it hit me between the middle and top part of my knees (I'm about 5'7). I usually can't pull off dark grey colors, but this was more of a blue-grey, so I felt like it worked for me. As I mentioned before, I loved the tea cup print...I felt like I was straight out of Alice in Wonderland :) I'm also a big fan of dresses with zippers in the back (this one was hidden). They are so much easier for me to get into. I really don't have anything bad to say about this dress other than part of me wishes it were made of cotton rather than silk so that I could wear it to work frequently, but then it might not be as beautiful as it is. I'm going to try to wait for this one to go on sale, but I'm not sure it's going to make it there. I'll definitely pay full price for it if I see that my size is starting to sell out online. Highly recommended!
