Fitting Room Reviews: Signs of Summer (Part I)

I stopped by Anthropologie last Friday to check out more of the tag sale, but then I realized that I haven’t done a fitting room review in some time.   Here are a few of my fitting room reviews on mostly full price items.  What do you ladies have your eye on this summer?  Let me know!

Anthropologie – Horkelia Shift …$178.00
When I first saw this dress, I knew I had to have it.  The color, the lace and the style of the dress were the perfect combination.  However, I was slightly disappointed when I tried it on.  I initially tried on a size (6) because of the straight cut of the dress.  I thought that I would have an issue with my hips, but I didn’t.  I then tried on the size (4) (pictured above) and it fit about the same.  The dress is baggy around the waist and was not very flattering.  I wish it were…I really loved this dress.  I thought about adding a belt to the dress to add some shape to it.  I don’t know…what do you think?

Anthropologie – Butterfly Net Dress…$158.00
When I first saw this dress in the store I instantly thought of my sister because of how much she loves butterflies.  Sis…this dress is definitely the one for you.  I tried this dress on in a size (4) and it fit okay except around my hips and thighs.  This vibrant blue cotton dress made by Nathalie Lete has a pencil skirt bottom that was a little snug on me.  The top of the dress could be worn strapless or with the detachable spaghetti straps.  This dress has beautiful yellow, pink, orange and green butterflies that demands attention.  I love the look of this dress, but unfortunately this one is a pass for me.

Anthropologie – Land Of Springs Dress…$59.95 (was $118.00)
I really loved the look of this dress, but I kind of wish it came in a solid color instead of stripes.  I love the fact that the fabric was a little heavier on top and on the bottom.  I also loved the cowl neck draping around my neck and the thick knots on my shoulders.  However, I felt that the horizontal stripes highlighted my hips a little too much.  I tried this on in a small (S) and it's TTS.

Anthropologie – Nautical Dreaming Chemise…$88.00
This chemise is in the lounge section, but I think this one could be worn as a causal dress.  I tried a small (S) in the raspberry color and fell in love.  This dress is extremely soft and lightweight with a flattering A-line bottom.  I paired it with the Line-Upon-Line Cardi ($148.00) for a complete look.

Anthropologie – Dynamic Zigs Dress…$158.00
I tried on a small (S) in this Plenty by Tracey Reese jersey knit dress.  I didn’t notice this dress online but the in-store mannequin caught my attention.  The store displayed the dress with the Pulling It Together Sweater in the ivory color and it looked amazing.  I was worried that the dress was going to be too clingy, but it wasn’t.  The fit was true to size and the length was perfect for my height.  The dress is very flattering and gathering around the waist was just the right touch.  This dress also comes in a blue motif.

Anthropologie – Cuernavaca Maxi…$158.00
This is another dress that I didn’t notice online, but the in-store mannequin caught my eye.   I tried it on in a size (4) and it fit perfectly on the top of the dress.  The top part of the dress is made of a jersey knit material that was comfortable and soft.  The two tone coloring of the dress is beautiful too.  The bottom half of the dress has a sunny and bright yellow design on a silk skirt.  The skirt length, however, was a little awkward.  It stopped a little bit above my ankle, close to my shins.  It also has slits on both sides of the skirt and I wasn’t a big fan of that.  I paired it with the Line-Upon-Line Cardi ($148.00) for a complete look.  I think that adding a belt to the dress could add a little more shape to the dress.
