So I went to Anthro yesterday and didn't find what I was looking for. I really wanted to try on the Roped-In dress and the Breakfasting dress. But the store I went to had none of those around. I left disappointed, so I decided to try again today, but at a different store. I just got back from the Uvillage Anthro and they had a bunch of the Breakfasting dresses. I grabbed a Small, knowing that it ran huge.
I know this dress got pretty bad reviews online. Everything from fit issues, to fabric issues, to the pleated skirt. I would have to agree that if it were at it's original price of $138, it would never tempt me in getting it. But at half price, I thought it was worth it. The Small fit perfectly, although I couldn't get it to zip up cause the zipper was in the back (how do you reviewers deal with this issue???), but I know it will. The fabric itself is a little thick, but then it's nothing I can't handle since we have pretty mild summers here. I also thought the pleated skirt, although accentuated the hips a tad bit, was nothing too bothersome. Many of you know that I've been looking for bridal shower and rehearsal dinner dresses and for now, I think I'll keep this as a contender. It'll hang in my closet with the tags on for a little while until I truly decide to keep it.
Today I wore a dress I got for my friend's wedding last year. I've only worn it once and that was to her wedding. I saw this dress floating around on Ebay but there hasn't been much love for it...and I'm not sure why. I think it might be the silk material? The kimono style doesn't appeal to everyone? Anyway, I still love the beautiful patterns and colors. I just wished it was a tab bit longer since I'm wearing it at work and I feel a bit uncomfortable.
Dress - Anthropologie (Name????)
Cardigan - J. Crew Featherweight BF Cardi
Shoes - J. Crew
Can I just also say that J. Crew makes the most uncomfortable shoes ever? I have three pairs of shoes from them, and I guess it took me three pairs to learn my lesson. These brown wedges are by far the most comfortable and even then I can't walk more than maybe 3 blocks in them.
OK, off my rant! Have a wonderful day, ladies!!! :)
