Anthropologie Reviews: Amadi Crosswrap Dress Siphon Midi Dress, Mixed Stripe Dress

Hello! Sorry for my absence - busy busy busy and I've been falling asleep after I put the kiddos to bed. Whoopsie. I have ben trying to get a little more active on instagram so if you have time check me out at #shoperarach.

Amadi Crosswrap Dress (XS)
I think this dress is quite flattering. The little keyhole at the neckline adds just enough sex appeal. The top is quite fitted so although I would keep the XS it is definitely form-fitting. My only complaint is the material - it's sort of sweater-y but almost feels like it has lurex or  something in it? Just a little odd. I saw this cute little polka dot number online and this Ralph Lauren one is similar but a little dressier. This dress by the same brand (Amadi) looks SUPER cute and flattering.

 Siphon Midi Dress (XS)
I'm always so drawn to midi dresses even though I know their length is challenging for me (5'4"). This is by Dolan - I really love this brand's dresses. The material is always soft and stretchy and so comfortable to wear. This could definitely use some spanx but overall it is like wearing a nightgown - in a good way! It has some nice seaming that creates a good silhouette and the neckline is just interesting enough. Love this less expensive one from Nordstrom that has a nice open back and this stripe tank version is also quite adorable. Here's another cute midi dress on sale from Dolan.

 Mixed Stripe Dress (XS)

I do love me some stripes. This is also quite cute. The skirt portion is a little funky. There was a little lump on the left side that I couldn't quite fix. Again, this is quite form-fitting but I would still stick with my usual XS. It does run a bit short with the tulip hem in the front. The material is stretchy, a little ribbed on top and not too thick. Look at this adorable summery version by French Connection. And loving this Loft version - work appropriate.

I like my recent Anthropologie try-ons but I can't help but feeling most of the sale items still need some 2nd cuts. Have you shopped Anthro's recent 30% off?
