Sikuli Diamond Dress ($168) I have the Sky Trails Maxi incarnation of this dress from last year, so I decided to give this cute geometric print version a try. I'm wearing a X-Small here, the same size I have in the Sky Trails Maxi, and the fit was spot on. Yep, even in a different print, this dress still runs huge - Anthro vanity sizing at it's finest! I thought it was cute, but I prefer the print and color of the one I already own. Pass.
Solene Maxi Dress ($168) I was really excited to try on this dress. It's peasant chic vibe seemed right up my alley. I also liked the print and the mesh-type material which is cool for Summer and doesn't wrinkle. Sadly, the fit on me was horrible. I tried on a Small. It was too tight through the chest and the bottom portion hung away from my body in a very unflattering way. The medium would have probably been a better fit, but I was so turned off by the look of the Small that I didn't even bother to go there. Pass.
Caldera Dress ($128) I really wanted to like this dress. Hence, the reason why I tried it on in two prints. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. Medium was the right size, but the fit just didn't suit my body. It was crazy unflattering from the side. The pleating around the waist poufed out and made me look like I had gained 10 pounds. Oh well, I'll bet this dress will look great on a lot of people, just not me. Pass.
Macrame Day Dress ($118) I wasn't sure which color I preferred in this beauty, so I took both the black and blue versions to the fitting room with me. Once I tried them on it was no contest. The blue won hands down. It's such a gorgeous, vibrant color, and it really complimented my skin tone and hair. I'm wearing a size Small above, and it fit great although it was a little snug through the chest. In addition, the material, although comfortable, is very wrinkle-prone. Despite these negatives, I was still really digging it. I decided to try on a Medium for good measure, but the Medium looked really sloppy. The arm holes were too big and the bottom portion didn't hang as well on me as the Small. I tried the Small on once again and this time I belted it. After a second go around, I concluded that the tightness in the chest wasn't a big deal and decided to bring this one home with me. Purchased.
Sunbathed Maxi Dress ($168) I actually purchased this one online and exchanged it in the store for the Macrame Dress above. However, I tried it on in the fitting room before I returned it in order to take a photo in it for reviews. I have a dress very similar to this that I purchased a couple of years ago. I love that dress, but I don't wear it much. It has very thin straps which means I can only wear it with that dreaded of all things - a strapless bra. I thought this version would be a more everyday alternative to that dress. Since I wanted to wear this one with flats rather than heels, I decided to order it in size Medium Petite. Big mistake. It was way too short. It had other issues, though. The fit was sort of weird through the waist, and I didn't care for the shiny, pink polyester material. It really cheapened the look of the dress to me, and for $168 the last thing you want to look is cheap. Back to the store it went.
