Dressing Room: Anthropologie.

A trip to Retique (upscale Goodwill in our neighborhood) was the main shopping trip on my agenda today, but it was pretty much a big fail. Tried on a couple of ill-fitting skirts and blazers with sleeves-too-short syndrome before calling it a day…and moving onto Anthropologie, naturally. My “wish list” was finally empty & fulfilled, so I wasn’t necessarily anticipating buying anything. I brough a MASSIVE quantity of clothing into the dressing room and did wind up purchasing the Reccurring Theme skirt. I posted mini-reviews of just the items that are officially wish-listed below. Time to watch the Tuesday sales again!

1. Recurring Theme Skirt, $49.95 (originally $98)

(Purchased) Loved the print, love the pleats, love the length. Work and weekend appropriate. This was a size medium, true to size. I especially loved it with the…

2. Facile Camp Shirt, $78

Black with gold buttons = love. They didn’t have this in an 8, so I tried a 10, but I think I’m happy with the larger size. I think this would be the perfect piece to pair with many of the skirts I own right now—a step above the black basic tees/cardigans that keep being paired with them. Want it in cream, too! I also thought it was great with the skirt I purchased and also with the…

3. Painted Morning Skirt, $88

This one was unavailable to try in a 10, and I think I needed to size up. Perhaps runs a little small. Pretty print, fitted, could be made work appropriate (or, again, weekend!).

4. Counting Angles Dress, $168

Officially wish-listed! This dress is a 2-parter, with a spaghetti-strap slip underneath of the same print and a dress that layers on top of it. The reviews of it on the site are very mixed, but I loved it! Would be so fantastic with brown sandals, boots, etc. Side view to demonstrate how the slip allows full coverage whilst the sleeves flutter away.:) Medium, TTS.

4. Valley Breeze Tunic, $98

Love both this print and the looks of the other one online. I was a bit excited after Roxy’s review saying it could be long enough to be a dress for shorter ladies, but yep…when you’re 5’10” absolutely not. Didn’t even pass the “cover booty” test to be worn with leggings. Nevertheless, I liked it. Could see it being a great piece over black pants for work (or over jeans on Fridays). A pretty big hole in my wardrobe right now is blouses/shirts. Dresses have taken over. Tried on an 8, TTS.
