I hope you all have had a great end to your week. I have! I *finally* got paid for teaching my Fall Into Fashion class. I only had to
I will admit to maybe, just maybe grabbing a beautiful Milly sweater in my size (in the black and white colorway), as it is on sale, and oh, so, lovely. Nice little treat, and I can wear it to my winter intersession class. (BTW, anyone have a good name for my Winter class? I was thinking Wear Winter Well, but I don't know...sort of stumped here.)
Today I am showing off three Anthropologie outfits that I have worn in the past month...
Vestiges Dress. I have had my eye on this all summer long, and when I couldn't wait any longer, I bought it off ebay for a substantial amount of savings over its full price. It did make it to sale but as of today only size 2 and 8 are left. And I know why--because it is AWESOME.
I took a size 4 in this...I have one other shirt from Girls of Savoy (blue one with the ruffles) and that is in a 2, so I know this brand runs large. The four is perfect everywhere, but especially in the bust, where it is just fitted enough. The minor miracle is that it fits just wide enough to accommodate my larger hips.
The belt is quite long, but I just played with it until it worked for my waist.
I had heard this dress was very constricting through the neckline, and I truly understand that. Although it didn't bother me in the least, I could see how the sheer excess of ruffles could get on the nerves.
Curtain Call dress It was priced right when I bought it, much less than its original price, in other words. I chose to go with the x-small, as I read the reviews that it was RUNNING HUGE. It does run huge...hence the x-small was perfect on me.
I personally like the effect of the exaggerated sleeves and the narrow waist. That said, I know this is not a dress for a lot of women. The neckline and sleeves work well on my small upper-body as it helps balance me out a bit, but I imagine that if you are larger than a B cup and you have a bit broader shoulders, this may put you out of balance. Then again, if your S.O. LOVES you with more up top, this may be the dress for you! LOL. ;)
I am wearing it with a pearl necklace I bought from Ann Taylor last winter and a pair of Carma peep-toes by Cole Haan.
You all have a great day. If you are interested in receiving the Arbonne Holiday Catalog from me (it is SO BEAUTIFUL), please leave a comment with your e-mail address or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
