Dressing Room Snaps: Anthropologie

7 Jan

I love doing these little dressing room snaps posts. It’s like taking a friend with me into the dressing room to give me feedback! A couple days after Christmas I dropped into Anthropologie to check out their ‘30% off everything on sale’ sale and did a little mini session. Oh and I just checked and now everything on sale is an extra 40% off!

Let’s check out some of my favorites!

Pure + Good by Anthropologie Elle Space-Dyed Top (find it here)

Size Worn XL

Original price: $58, sale price: $29.95 + 30% off

This t-shirt is so incredibly super soft and drapey that I couldn’t resist it. I would have been fine with a large, but the XL gives it a more slouchy look that I like. After the sale it was $20 and I’ve actually already wore this twice with a fluffy cardigan and jeans.

Eri + Ali Rosemont Tiered Top (find it here)

Size worn: XL

Original price: $58, sale price: $29.95 + 30% off

I’ve been low-key searching for an interesting black top. I wanted something that was kind of flowy, but in a prettier fabric. This one is super soft and exactly what I was looking for. They only had a size XL in the store (there are plenty of other sizes online), but I like the way it fits.  I plan to pair it with slim work trousers and a cardigan. I also like how it is styled on the Anthropologie website where it is tucked into a high-waisted skirt, so I’ll try that out too. In the summer, this would also look great paired with some distressed jean shorts!

52 Conversations by Anthropologie Colloquial Collarless Buttondown (find it here)

Size worn: 14

Original price: $78

52 Conversations by Anthropologie is a limited-edition capsule collection featuring original prints that speak to the heart and art of Anthropologie. This shirt is 28 out of the 52 released prints. I actually picked up a few pieces from this brand to try because I love all the prints.

Typically, I would go with a size 12, but they didn’t have any in the store (or online). The 14 fit fine though with no button boob gaping issues. I love how it can be styled dressy for work or paired with jeans on the weekend. This one was full-price, so it was a bit of a splurge.

52 Conversations by Anthropologie Colloquial Tie Neck blouse (not online)

Size worn: 12

Original price: $78

I’m not sure why this one isn’t online, but it a tie-neck version of the last blouse I tried in a similar fabric. This one I grabbed in a 12 (my typical blouse size) and it fit identical to the 14 version that I tried above … which is kind of weird.

The tie is cute, but isn’t really doing it for me. Between the two blouses, I liked the other one better so this one went back on the rack.

Maeve Beloved Dress (find it here)

Size worn: Medium

Original Price: $148, sale price: $29.95 + 30% off

I picked up this dress in a Medium, because there were no other sizes available. However, since it’s a jersey dress it could fit a variety of sizes. And yes, I think it is super dumb that in one dressing room session I’ve tried on everything from Medium to XL and it all fits.

I like the fit-and-flare shape combined with the front-tie detail and twirly skirt. The pattern is super cool too and I don’t really own much purple in my closet. Here is a close up of the two patterns mixed on the bust:

In this photo I look weirdly identical to my sister, Katie. I even sent it to her and said I would have thought this was her if I didn’t know it was me… genes are weird! I actually thought the sale price was $59.95 for this dress, so when it rang up at $20.96 I was pretty darn happy! I was having some second thoughts about whether I really NEEDED this, but I keep coming back to the fact that it looks cute and it was only $20… so this one is a keeper.

52 Conversations Colloquial Short-Sleeved Shirtdress (find it here)

Size Worn: 14

Original Price: $150

Once again, another 52 conversations piece that I love. This one is design 32 of 52 and I love the long shirt-dress style. Shirt dresses typically don’t fit me well because of my boobs and hips, so I was really surprised that this one was made for an hourglass shape. There were no 12’s in the store, so I grabbed a 14 to try and it fit fine with a little extra bootie room. As much as I loved this dress when I tried it on, I left it at the store and was planning to keep checking to see if it went on sale.

And then… I couldn’t stop thinking about it. AND the feedback on my Instagram stories where I shared the look was basically just “BUY IT” from everyone. So, I went online and ordered it (yay free shipping) figuring that if it isn’t actually love it can be returned. One benefit of ordering it online was that I used my PayPal account to pay for it. When I sell clothes (on Poshmark or Facebook), I typically leave the balance in my account as fun-money, so this splurge was actually kind of free!

Do you enjoy these impromptu Dressing Room try-on posts? Do you have a favorite look?
