My Picks | August 2011 Catalog

Read Article →
The August 2011 catalog is finally out and I really am loving some of the new arrivals. This will be a new monthly feature where I tell you my picks out of that months catalog. :)

Here are my August 2011 picks...
Eastward Dress Coat (Featured on the Cover and page 8)
Style# 22512990
Color: Coral (085)
Price: $228
Why I Love It: This coat is adorable. Coral is one of my favorites colors! I love the shorter sleeves, the button front, the hidden pockets, length and the interesting arrow pattern on the bottom.


Wrap Around Blouse (Featured on page 2)
Style# 20283594
Color: Green Motif (038), Blue Motif (049)
Price: $98
Why I Love It: I love the striped pattern, the necktie, how hight the neckline is and the length. This can be worn with many different pieces including pants, skirts and demin.



Noon & Night Dress (Featured on page 3)
Style# 22608699
Color: Wine (038)
Price: $158
Why I Love It: This dress would be a perfect transition piece to Fall. I love the dark wine color, the length, well... everything. Super adorable!



Gameboard Dress (Featured on page 8), REVIEW HERE
Style# 22189898
Color: Green Motif (038)
Price: $188
Why I Love It: I just recently tried this dress on and fell in love. The fit is great, the length hit just above my knee and the pattern is very cute.



Dalian Dress (Featured on page 10)
Style# 22802714
Color: Pearl (017)
Price: $178
Why I Love It: The sequin top is what really caught my eye for this dress. It's just a little something different then all the other dresses that Anthro has been offering. I love the contrasting material from top to bottom and the length seems to be a bit longer as it would hit below my knee. A very dressy dress!


Textured Dots Tights (Featured on page 30)
Style# 23130305
Color: Black Motif (009), Grey Motif (008)
Price: $18
Why I Love It: Yah! I love how there are tights in this catalog. I can't wait to see what type of cute, adorable tights Anthro will offer this coming up Fall and Winter seasons. I loved the Dotty Cluster Tights from last season and these are just as adorable. I am also loving the Slung Shade T-Straps featured with these tights well!

Anthropologie Product Reviews | Round 1

Read Article →
Hey everyone! It's that time again...review time! :) I went to my local Anthro Monday and did some reviews for you. I have to give a shout out to the Roseville staff. They are amazing!

Do you see anything you like? Did you add anything to your must list or wish list? Please share!

On to the reviews...stay tuned for Rounds 2 and 3!

Here is Maple's by Some Odd Rubies Tupelo Dress. This dress fits somewhat TTS. I'm wearing a a size 0. I picked a size 0 since the back of the dress is stretchy. I would say you can size down if you are smaller busted since the back is stretchy. This is dress is super comfortable and I love the fit. Especially the bodice. It isn't too low and the length hits just at my knee. The print is very cute as well. I love the gold and navy colors mixed. This will look great with a  belt.

Wishlisted for sale time.
Maple by Some Odd Rubies Tupelo Dress
Style# 22587232
Color: Yellow (049)
Price: $168
Length: 40''
Pros: Somewhat TTS, length, fit, comfortable, colors
Cons: Can size down since back of dress is stretchy
Verdit: A-
Must, lust or bust: Lusting until sale










Here is The Addison Story's Collecting Dots Dress. This dress runs somewhat TTS, if not a little big/baggy. I am wearing an XS and I still had some room. The dress has a very cute polka dot pattern and the length is good as it hits just above the knee. The dress doesn't show off too much of the bust and there are even some extra buttons so the material doesn't slip open. This dress would look adorable with a belt.

A pass for now but will revisit during sale time.

Style# 21350657
Color: Red Motif (069)
Price: $198
Length: 36''
Pros: Somewhat TTS, length, fit, pattern
Cons: Can size down
Verdit: B
Must, lust or bust: Passing for now










Here is Carnation Lily Lily Rose's Flower Stand Dress.  This dress fits somewhat TTS. I'm wearing a size 0. The back is stretchy which allowed me to size down. If you are smaller or even larger busted, you might want to consider sizing down so the bust isn't too large. I really like the old fashioned look and feel to this dress. The floral pattern is very pretty but not as vibrant as the online photo.

Back to the rack.

Here is Velvet's Whirligig Dress.  This dress fits TTS. I'm wearing an XS. You can size down if you want by one size since the material is stretchy, has give and has no zipper. I love how this dress comes in so many fun colors. The length is good as it hits at my knee and I love the neckline. The dress isn't too heavy and would look cute with a belt.

Here is Moulinette Soeurs Splashed Palatte Dress. This dress runs pretty TTS. I'm wearing a 2 here but the bust is loose. I would size down to a 0, but my local Anthro didn't have one to try on. I really love the fit and length of this dress as it's a bit longer then the other dresses I tried on. I also really like the colors as this can be worn with different colored cardigans and shoes.

Wishlisted for sale time.

Here is Porridge's Cirque A-Line. This dress seems to run smaller then it's sister, the Sing Sweetly Party Dress, reviewed HERE. I'm wearing a size 4 here and it seemed to fit me fine. My local Anthro didn't have a size 2, but I do own the Sing Sweetly Party Dress in a size 2. I am just in love with the elephant print. I wouldn't wear the flimsy ribbon belt but maybe dress this up with a red, yellow, green or blue belt...something fun and colorful.

Here is Sariah Carson's Gameboard Dress. This dress fits TTS. I'm wearing a 0. This dress doesn't have a zipper but it pullover styling. This was one of my favorites I tried on. I love everything about it...the fit, length, color, pattern. One thing however I noticed on the Anthro site is they have the front and back of the dress switched. The back the of the dress has buttons but on the Anthro site, they are advertising this as the front of the dress which is incorrect. In the model shot she is wearing the dress correctly with the buttons in the back.

Wishlisted for sale time.

Here is Corey Lynn Calter's Sugared Dress. This dress fits TTS. I'm wearing a size 2. One thing to note however is the dress is tight in the shoulder area. You can size up if you find this to be uncomfortable but I absolutely love this dress. The pattern is super adorable, the length as it hits just at my knee, and the colors. You can wear this dress with many different colored belts, cardigans and shoes. I also love the puffiness on the bottom.

On the top of my wishlist for sale time.

Here is Edme & Esyllte's Picacho Dress. This dress fits TTS. I'm wearing a 0. You could possibly size down in this dress since the back is super stretchy. I really love this maxi dress. It's a bit on the heavier side, but I love the orange color and the material. It also comes with straps and the back of the dress has a tie. I also love the hidden pockets which I feel is a must in dresses now. Thanks Anthro! This would be cute with a belt and some sandals.

Wishlisted for sale time.

Here is Moulinette Soeurs Horkelia Shift. This dress runs a little big. I'm wearing a size 2 here and would need to wear a size 0 for this to be more fitted. The size 2 sort of just hung on me. My local Anthro didn't have a 0 to try on. I really like the concept of this dress. It's gorgeous in person and I love the pattern and length. I can see the Ivory colorway being worn as a wedding dress since it's so pretty.

A pass for now. I really have no where to wear this.

Style# 20647673

Cons: Size down for a more fitted look

Here is Maeve's Pixel Impressionist Shift. This dress fits TTS. I'm wearing a size 2. I really love the colors and pattern of this dress. I didn't like how hard it was to get on though. The slip is connected in the dress and you have to get your arms through both the dress and slip and put it over your head. It took me a couple times to get both my arms through correctly, but after that, I loved the fit and length. The ribbon tie is cute as well. You can also wear different colored belt, cardigans and shoes with this dress.

Wishlisted for sale time.

Pros: TTS, colors, pattern, fit, length
Cons: None
Verdit: A-
Must, lust or bust: Lusting until sale








Here is Girl's From Savoy Around The Maypole Dress, which I also have reviewed HERE in navy. I LOVE this dress and love it even more in the red and gold colorway. I'm wearing a size 4 here since my local Anthro didn't have any sizes smaller. I originally purchased a 0 in this dress in the navy colorway since the back is super stretchy and since it was tighter around the bust area. This dress is just pure perfection and is a must buy!

Wishlisted.
