Dressing Room: Anthropologie

Pulsations Skirt

Originally $78, now $40

This skirt was my only purchase, and hooooopefully I’ll get another 15% off of it later. I know, after all my excitement over the birthday coupon, I DIDN’T HAVE IT WITH ME YESTERDAY. I swear it’s been in my purse every single day…and now I have no idea where it is. I was abnormally upset about it, but Adam talked me into buying the skirt in spite of my forgetfulness and offered to go do a price adjustment later if I find it. Yes, he rocks. Soon I, too, will live 3 blocks from Anthropologie. The sales section and I might get a little too friendly. As far as fit goes, I went up to a size 10 on this one, so I’d say it runs a bit small. I love the exposed zipper and summery colors/pattern.

Faceted Skirt

Originally $128, now $70

I loved this skirt. Anything with an argyle-esque pattern and pockets is bound to tempt me. Alas, $70 felt far too steep a price to pay for a cotton skirt. If the price magically drops, I’ll definitely stalk it again! This was a size 8; I’d say fits true to size.

Drifting Jasmine Skirt

Originally $98, now $50

Similar enough to my other Anthropologie skirt in cut/style that I knew I wouldn’t buy it, but after seeing it look lovely on other bloggers (Kendi comes to mind!), I had to give it a shot. Very pretty. This is an 8, pretty true-to-size.

Doubly Dapper Dress


Beautiful dress, lovely fabrics and details—-I liked the fullness of the skirt and the pockets. It felt a bit short on me when movin’ around, so not a real contender. This is an 8, true-to-size.

Serengeti Sundress

Originally $138, now $70

I liked the color cominbation, the straps, the bodice. I would certainly wear this, but it’s not one for which I was tempted to break out the moolah. Can definitely see it being perfect on a hot summer day; I’d LOVE to add many more summer dresses to my wardrobe if the price tags were much less painful. Size 8, true-to-size.

Lane Change Skirt


I didn’t like this on me at all. I probably would’ve needed to size up to a 10, but just in general it was not flattering me. I like the exposed back zipper and pockets in theory, so someone else could certainly rock this!

Rainforest Morning Shirtdress

Originally $158, now $80

Gorgeous print, great concept…not great on me. The unbuttoned front-slit on the front was too much for this tall girl. Still…go grab it at your local Anthro if you can find it/it works for you! Would be such a great piece for many seasons. Size 8, true-to-size.

That’s it for this trip—Adam was patiently waiting (and I didn’t want to try on too many items; had decided before entering the store that I would only buy one—sale—piece). Have you  nabbed (or online stalked) any Anthro pieces lately?

  1. Love the skirt that you go, but the Faced Skirt is so pretty too. Maybe it’ll go on sale soon too 🙂

    I’ve online stalked Anthro pieces, because you know we don’t have one in the C-U area. Sad. I love the Salty Seas Dress and the Sweet Shoppe Dress 🙂

    I hope you find your coupon soon!

  2. That red and white skirt is da bomb! I love it! I’ve never let myself go inside an Anthropologie… I don’t think I could handle that much cuteness… but they just opened one across the street from my house so I may have to give in!

  3. these are pretty much all great on you! i love your anthro reviews because you always try on the stuff that i would’ve taken to the dressing room, too. so now i don’t even have to go to the store 😉
