Anthropologie Review - Dresses

Happy Sunday ladies!  I hope that you all are having a great weekend.  I don’t know about you all, but I’m very happy that Anthro didn’t have a major sale last week.  I really have to start cutting back on my spending each month – it’s gotten a little out of control.  But, even though I’m glad there wasn’t a sale last week, I am looking forward to seeing what’s in store for us this week. 

Here are my reviews of a few dresses that I tried on this past week.  Hopefully, one of these beauties will get marked down very soon!

1. Vestiges Dress $148.00
I love, love, love this dress.  I’ve been eyeing this one for some time now, but never got a chance to try it on.  This dress debuted sometime this summer, but it transitions perfectly into the fall season.  Another thing that I love about this dress is that it is totally work appropriate.  I work in a pretty conservative office and this one would pass my office’s strict dress code policy.  The colors in the top are bright and vibrant - orange, pink and brown - just perfect.  The dress has a belted waist that ties in with the navy bottom of the dress.  This dress fit me perfectly in the size 4.  I imagine that if you are bigger on top that you may have to go up a size in the dress.  I plan to buy this dress soon, before it’s sold out.

This is a classic and versatile shirtdress from Fei.  I was happy to find out that it is true to size.  This dress is pretty basic, but you can wear it with so many accessories (tights, boots, belt, heels, and a cute tank or top underneath).  I decided to add the Meridian Gate Belt with the dress.  The red belt was a great contrast to the navy corduroy fabric.  The material in this dress is just right - so you can wear it on a cool fall day and well into the winter season.  I plan to buy this dress as soon as it gets marked down.  I just can’t pay the full price.

3. Lucerna Dress $128.00
Ladies it’s time to put your little black dress on hold for the season and pick up this little red dress.  I initially went up a size and tried on a medium in this dress.  I was afraid that the small would be too clingy, but the small worked out just perfect for me.  The lightweight jersey material is heavy enough to hide any bulges or undergarment lines.  The red color really works for the fall season.  You can dress this dress up or down and this would be great with heels or some sexy boots.

4. Snowy Egret Shift $168.00
I didn’t know if I would like this dress when I first saw it.  The model looked great in it in the catalog and the print of the dress is gorgeous.  I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this dress on.  I really liked it.  The pattern is so beautiful and unique and cut of the dress is different, but it works for some people.  The obi belt is in a muted orange color that holds well when it’s tied.  The bottom half of the dress is a little narrow.  I tried on a size 4 and it was a little snug around my hips, but a 6 would have been too big on the top.  I figure that I could put on some spanx and that may solve the hip issue.  This may be a pass for me. 

I was pretty sad after I tried on this dress.  I really liked it on the hanger and it even fit me well, except for the length.  I like to find dresses that I can wear to work and then other events for the evenings or weekends.  This dress, however, wouldn’t work for me in my office.  Here in the picture, you can see where the skirt falls on me – it’s a little too short.  This will be a great dress for someone that is a little shorter than me or who has shorter legs.   This is a great dress for the fall – the colors are perfect.  I may consider buying this one to wear with some tights and boots on the weekends.  The skirt of this dress is made of wool, so beware if you have sensitive skin. 

I was instantly drawn to this dress because of the ruffles and the plaid pattern.  This would be a great dress for work, church, dinner…just about anything.  The fabric is a little itchy, but it didn’t bother me that much.  The dress comes with a skinny belt, which I think goes perfect with it.  Unfortunately, this dress was also narrow around the hips.  I felt a little self conscious in it because it hugged my hips too much.  The top fit just right, but if I went up as size, the top would be too big.  This dress would be great on a petite sized woman.  This one is going to be a pass for me.
