Anthropologie Fitting Room Reviews

Hiya! The Layered Column Dress lured me into Anthro this weekend. Of course, while I was there, I couldn't resist trying on some other pretty dresses. So, here we go . . . 

Layered Column Dress, tried it on in an XS as it was the only size they had available in my store. I'm usually a S, so I had to squeeze into it, but the stretchy, spandexy fabric made it an easy task. This dress is so Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, and by that I don't mean that I'm wearing a satellite dish on my head to get better signal reception from the aliens, but rather, it is very structured and form fitting. It's flattering and hugs your body in all the right places, but I decided to pass on it. I like my dresses more free flowy. I'd say stick to your regular size on this one. 



Mystery Dress. Since I haven't been checking out Anthro's site lately, I haven't the slightest idea what this dress is called. So I'll call it the Zig Zag dress. The tag says it's Plenty by Tracy Reese. The original price was $158, after the 1st cut it was $89.95 and after the 2nd cut it was $39.95. This Ziggy baby came home with momma. I seem to have a penchant for jersey dresses. If you loved the Walkway or Pezza, you'll love this Ziggy too! And since mostly all the Missoni for Target goodies are sold out, I can just pretend this is a Missoni. Hah! Size below is a S and I'm usually a size 2-4. Fits TTS.











Again, forgive me for being clueless, but I have no idea what this top is called. So I'll call it Janis Joplin. Tried it on in a size S. On sale for $39.95. If you look at the 2nd shot below, you'll see the lovely sparkly, sequins in the front! Sequins = Cher, so I'd say this top is Janis Joplin meets Cher. Fits TTS.
Love! Bought! Yayness!
***Update: Thanks to Roxy's comment, I now know this top is called the Beekeeper Blouse. Thanks Roxy!







Interspersed Ponte Dress in plum (also comes in black). They were out of size S, so I tried this on in a M. It's a gorgeous dress, so Kate Winslet. The lace capped sleeves are darling. The fabric is a blend of wool and nylon and I found it to be very itchy. I have sensitive skin, but if you wore a slip under it, Voila! problem fixed.  









No idea what this dress is called but it was on the sale rack. Many sizes available in stores. Fits TTS.
