Well, it's back to reality today. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I'm sure most of you are sick of Thanksgiving leftovers at this point, but I've got some leftovers for you of a different variety: Anthropologie fitting room reviews! These are the rest of the items I tried on the day I did my party dress reviews. A couple of these items are brand new and are featured in the December catalog. Enjoy!
Graphic Flutters Dress ($278). This little silky number has two of my favorite things on it: butterflies and birds. However these critters are a little too 80's for my taste. I prefer my critters to have more of a 70's vibe. All the colors and patterns reminded me of the background of a Max Headroom video. (I know, I know. Most of you don't know who the hell I'm talking about. I feel so old...) I tried on a size 6 and it fit fine, but I just wasn't feeling the print. Pass.
Tie-Neck Sweater Dress ($158). This dress really caught my eye in the store. I love the color blocking here and the sky blue and rusty red colors compliment each other very well. I grabbed a size small, and it really clung to my curves, but not in a good way. The proportions of the color blocking are not flattering to my body type. The black band is too high up on my torso, making my boobs look like they are at my waist. The "skirt" portion is way too long, making my hips look wide. Oh, and it has wool in it, so if all those things weren't bad enough, it's itchy too. I really wanted this one to work, but it was all kinds of wrong on me. Pass.
Cara, Cara Peasant Dress ($198). With it's vibrant orange color, I couldn't help but notice this dress hanging in the store. Before trying it on, I was unsure about the print. I had visions of Mrs. Roper dancing in my head, but I decided to try in on anyway. I have to confess. I absolutely love this dress. Big, scary floral print be damned! This is a size 6 and the fit was amazing. I felt like a hippie flower child. I want to wear this with boots, a belt, and a braid in my hair, flashing the peace sign at everyone I meet. Wishlisted.
Loka Blouse ($88). This blouse looked really weird on the hanger. It's green, and I love the pretty embroidery on the neckline, so I decided to give it a chance. It did look better on me than on the hanger, but that's about the only positive I can say about the fit. I tried on a size 6, and there was way too much puffy material going on. It was everywhere. I lifted my arms and there was even tons of puffy material under my arms too. I felt like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Lady. Pass.
Gather & Give Top ($48). Given the name, I wanted to get this top just to wear it on Thanksgiving Day. Of course, there were other attributes that drew me to it as well. I love the vibrant orange color, the detail at the waist, and the low price point. I tried on both a small and a medium, and I preferred the roominess of the medium. This top is pretty low cut for my comfort level, so the extra room would be needed for a cami. I really wanted to purchase this, but there was one big problem: mother freaking wool! I can't fathom what the purpose of putting wool in this top was, because there's not enough in it to make it warmer or give it a woolly appearance. Ett Twa can kiss my ett twa for taking a perfectly good knit top and making it itchy. Pass.
