Anthropologie Reviews - Four Corner Shirtdress, Side Swept Frill V-Neck, Eyelet Seersucker Blouse, Pilcro Stet Slim Bootcut and Panoramic V-Neck

Is anyone else getting excited for the Tag Sale? I'm not sure what to expect since I don't remember going to one before but I am hoping for at best a few bargains and at the least a few price adjustments. Went to Anthro to do some pre-scoping of sale items and here is what I found:

Leifsdottir Hera Feather Dress (size 6)
This was a random store return as my local store does not carry the Anthropologie line. I never even gave this dress a 2nd look online but I LOVE it. The colored trim is almost like a rainbow and I love the etherealness of the dress. Unfortunately, it is at least 2 sizes too big! I called around for a size 2 but couldn't find it. Insert very sad face here. It is so lovely and interesting and subtly sexy.

Side-Swept Frill V-Neck (size XS) in Grey Motif and Pilcro Stet Slim Bootcut (size 26)
The frill on the side of the shirt is sort of a bummer. I actually think the slouchiness of it is adorable with some skinny pants and the material is this light linen knit that is delightful. The jeans fit well and were very comfortable but I'm finding something about the Pilcro denim unflattering in the crotch area. I don't know why, something just looks sort of off.

Eyelet Seersucker Blouse in Navy (size 2) 
This is very cut and a nice sturdy cotton. Requires a cami underneath. The shirt runs a bit short in the torso (and I am quite short torsoed) and is a little boxy but would be adorable with the right bottoms.

I love all these luscious floral prints. Unfortunately, the fit on this one is too big to be called just slouchy. It was just unflattering on me. 

I'm on the fence about this one. The SA thought it looked great but I'm nervous about wearing anything that cinches in right under my rather bountiful bosom. I actually like the high/low hemline - adds some interest. This may be a little too cutesy for someone my age would be great on someone younger? I sized up because of my chest and I'm pretty sure that was the right decision.

Tried this on before in a size 2 and thought I would size down this time. You can definitely size down on this one - it helps all the little details at the chest and back lay better. I love the shape and cutouts but the print is too blah for me. 

Hope there are some big markdowns for the sale next week - I have my eyes on a few things.  What about you?

  2. Hello,
    I was looking for pictures to use in my ebay listing and I stumbled on your blog. I'm actually selling the hera feather dress in size 2 (nwt) and the auction ends June 5. I wish I could keep it, but I would love for the dress to go to someone who will love it.

  3. Oh no! So sorry I missed out - thank you for thinking of me. :)

  4. I just got the Hera dress off E-Bay--how you described it is lovely! I will be posting some IRL's in a couple days on my blog
