I couldn't find this knit top online to get the name of it, but doesn't this just look lovely on her? Look at that smile on her face? Now that's a I-love-this-top-and-need-it-in-my-closet smile! Needless to say, this plus the Artists's Medium Tank were her first ever Anthro purchases. I'm pretty certain they won't be her last. Chris said I've created a mini little Cindi monster. Jill is very thrifty...much better than me at her young age. So, I trust that she will make her purchase decisions wisely. I'm already starting to teach her trade secrets that I've learned through the bloggy world on how to find sales items and great Anthro deals.
I also was able to find a couple of items to try on for fun.
Foremost Dress - $118
I was so underwhelmed when I put this dress on. It's a pullover style, which makes me torn, because I hate side zippers but pulling this over my head I felt like I was going to rip it. The rayon fabric didn't help either and I typically don't go for rayon unless it's a style and print that I can not resist. I think what bothered me the most was the removeable belt. The dress itself fit perfectly but the belt was so tight, I felt like I was going to cut off circulation. The teeny tiny elastic on the belt really didn't stretch much, so not much give there. Great concept, poor execution. Size wise, I think this might run a tiny bit big, so I would recommend sizing down. I'm wearing a Small here.
Yet another jersey dress which I don't need, but decided to try it on for fun. I'm wearing a Small here and I think it might run a little big. I'm normally a Medium. The fit was great, fabric soft, and length hit me perfectly. I loved the simplicity of the dress and the v neckline was very flattering. The knot detail on the bodice also gave it that flare. And of course, with a lot of Anthro dresses, the pockets I loved! This is an easy transition piece to the fall, but I advise if you like it, wait for sale. There are just so many jersey dresses out there right now that's currently full price, something is bound to hit sale soon!
You can always tell it's fall time when a lot of things come in gray! I love gray but sometimes it just don't go with my skin tone. I did like this blouse, but did not love it. Things I liked about it: first, the neckline. It's a faux wrap blouse, so the wrap part is attached to one another...no mishaps which is always nice. I also loved the puffed sleeves...adds a nice feminine touch. The tie itself is velvet in texture, which adds a little zing to the blouse. However, the color just was drab on me. The pink detailing around the neckline is cute, so I probably would like to wear this on its own. But then come fall and winter time, I'd want to wear this with a cardi, which would hide the nice detailing. Size wise, TTS...my usual 6 worked here.
BTW, the wedges I'm wearing are Tom's. I first saw them on the lovely Cat and just had to get them. Of course they were all sold out in my size, but I was able to find these at an online boutique in Canada! :) They are so comfortable and cute. I love that they're also for a good cause.
Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
