Dagmar Shirtdress Yay or Nay? (Review Revisited)

I reviewed the Dagmar Shirtdress originally on Effortless Anthropologie and now I am trying to decide. Should I buy it? Wait for a sale? Or skip it entirely (cause it looks vaguely like the female equivalent of a Hawaiian shirt as discussed on In Pursuit of Pretty Things).

Note this is the size 6 and I would order an 8 cause the 6 is clearly snug.

I vote wait for sale. I like the print but this dress has a 50% chance of coming out in another colorway based on Anthro's current trend...

In my opinion I would skip it. Like what was discussed on In Pursuit Of Pretty Things it does kind of look like a female Hawaiian shirt.

I like it. I think it can be mixed up nicely with blazers, tights, etc. If you are worried about your size selling out, then buy now, but if not, wait for a sale.

Wait for a sale. I think it's cute but it's not Full Price Cute.

Though I have not yet tried it, I also have my eye on this dress. Since it is not receiving much love in online reviews, a sale is quite probable. I would wait this one out.

About the 'Hawaiian Shirt' comment, funny how you can like something and one wayward negative comment can completely dampen your enthusiasm, huh? I try to go with my gut on these things.

I vote wait for sale. It's cute (although not me at all), but it's nothing that knocks my socks off. It looks lovely on you, but I don't think it's worth full price.

I think it looks great on you! The red is wonderful on your skin. Keep a close eye on the inventory levels, and if it starts getting low, then it might be worth full price (who knows, maybe by then, your desire will wane a little). It likely will make it to sale since red is not a color that everyone can do (me included).

You have the best print dresses, I think this would be a great one to add to your closet. My very new shopping philosophy is to buy what I love, whether or not it's on sale. If you love it, I say get it now.

you look gorgeous in it, but i dunno... i don't think it's a keeper! I'm always looking out for you. :)

I agree with Tien. I had a zipper issue with mine and was forced to return it. The store didn't have my size for an exchange so I'm waiting this time around for a sale. I love the dress, but then again, I live in Hawaii where aloha attire is the norm.

sale! i think it's super cute on you.

I say sale. I have not read said Hawaiian Shirt discussion, but I think the pattern is really pretty and the cut is very flattering. Having said that, I have a hard time paying full price for anything from Anthropologie.

Thanks for all the advice you guys! I think I can wait for a sale. I like it too much to pass entirely. But full price at Anthro is always a hard pill for the bargain hunter in me to swallow.
