Anthropologie Skirts: Online vs In-Person

I saw that Anthropologie was having a sale where all their sale items had an additional % off, AND they are offering free shipping and free returns. So, I figured I’d order a couple skirts that I had my eye on. I would have preferred to go to the store and try them on there… but #quarentinelife. Anyways, I haven’t done one of my online vs in-person posts in a while, so I figured now is the perfect time!

First up, is the Cordelia Midi skirt (find it here). The full price is $98, but when I ordered it, I paid $68.60. It’s on sale now and today’s price is $59.95.

Here it is on the model:


I like the pattern with contrasting tie belt and there are pretty little buttons at the waist. The skirt looked like a good option for dressing up for work or dressing down with a t-shirt.

Here it is on me paired with just a black t-shirt and black flats:

It’s cute. But I don’t know if I love it enough to add it to my closet. I ordered the large and I would say it fits pretty consistent with a typical large or 10/12. The midi length falls below my knees. In real life, I don’t love the pattern as much as I did on the website though. I’m thinking this one might be heading for the return bag. I’d love to hear your feedback though – is this a keeper or a return?

Next up, is the Devi Embroidered Midi Skirt (find it here) The full price was $158, but when I ordered it, I paid $69.97. Today it’s on sale for $99.95.

Here it is on the model:


This skirt has a similar cut as the first skirt; however, I like it so much more. The fabric is so beautiful and woven by had with the embroidery embellishments throughout the skirt to add pops of color.  The waist has a side-zip and some wonderful pockets as well. Once again, I can see myself dressing this up for work or dressing it down for a fun weekend winery date.

I ordered the large and I would say it fits consistent with a 12 — there is a little extra room and you can eat a meal comfortably with the stretchy back part of the waistband.

Here it is on me paired with the same black t-shirt and black flats:

I realize now that I tied the bow to the side and the model had it in the middle. Oops. This one kind of reminds me of ‘old school’ Anthropologie and I really like the kitschy factor. It kind of looks a little artsy-fartsy, which is totally my vibe.

While the first skirt wasn’t really exciting me much, this one makes me want to leave the house so I can wear it. Already, I think I’d love it with everything from a graphic t-shirt and jean jacket to a cute little tank top and sandals. Oh and I have some fantastic orange clogs that would look fantastic with it. This one is feeling like a keeper to me!

Do you enjoy my Online vs In-Person posts where I show pictures of how the item appears on the website model vs on me? Do you think I made the right choice in keeping the Devi midi skirt?
