confession time. i always find myself browsing on the anthropologie website, eying up and loving many items. but i've had a hard time ever ordering anything or placing an order. why? i'm not sure. part of it had to do with the fact that i didn't know what size i would be and i didn't really know the quality of the store.
i read a lot of blogs that LOVE anthro and always seem to suggest it, the most popular (and helpful) probably being anthroholic. i finally decided to place an order when i saw two gorgeous dresses that i had been eying up on sale.
anna sui tesserae dress
no longer available online
this dress is beyond gorgeous. i ordered two sizes but neither were flattering. the bottom has too much material and made me look way wider than i really am. the skirt was a bit too full and i'm not sure if it would really flatter anyone. this was the only disappointment in my first anthropologie experience.
as soon as i put this dress on, i knew it was MAGICAL. haha. seriously, the ruffles are just perfect and they totally make you want to twirl. i'm glad that this was offered in petite because the dress fell perfectly on my 5'2 frame. the 6P fit perfectly but i felt that i could have sized down. i called customer service and they let me order a 4P, which arrived pretty quickly the next week.
i have to say - i am EXTREMELY impressed with anthropologie. they have amazing, helpful and friendly customer service. the only downside is the closest store is about twenty minutes away from me. that's not even that bad, because it's in a fabulous area near the water and you can actually see the skyline of new york city from across the river. i know if i lived extremely close to one, i'd probably be there every day (lol).
also, while i was on the phone placing the order for the smaller size, i noticed that something else that i had been eying up was also on sale.
no longer available online, although i did see a ton at the store so check yours
i never knew that their aprons go on sale! i couldn't believe that this gorgeous style was actually under $15! of course, i ordered it via telephone immediately and i couldn't be happier. i love to bake and cook on the weekends to relieve the stress of school and now i can do it in style.
when i went to the store to do my returns on the sizes i didn't keep i saw this pretty dress
dandelion wish dress
how cute is that dress? i resisted the urge to try it on (ugh, it was even in my size!) because i've been trying to behave. i shouldn't have listened to myself (lol).
