Mystery Bird Dress from Anthropologie


Last week I ended up in the Mt. Lebanon Anthropologie after my dress appointment and was shown a new item that I haven't yet seen on the website (maybe I overlooked it). If you have info on this dress, please share it! It is beautiful and although I liked it very much, I didn't buy it. I can't recall which in house brand made it. Maybe Floreat? It has a thick canvas type linen fabric and a pretty obi belt. But the best part is by far the beautiful birds and print. I am such a sucker for a print and for birds and this combines both!

I tried on an 8 which ended up being too small. I didn't grab the next size up because I was sort of in a hurry. But the 8 fit ok in the bust and waist. The main issue with it was the hips. They ran narrow. For this silhouette I should have predicted a narrower fit that would necessitate the need for a bigger size. The length is refreshing because it is a bit longer. The sleeves were pleated and cut in a way that seemed complimentary to many body types.  And the deep colors of the printed fabric will work so beautifully for fall! I will wishlist this as soon as I can figure out what it is named. What do you think?

I echo the awesome print and colour oohing... the size of the print is perfect against that neutral background. And so happy it has real sleeves!

It reminds me of the post-apocalyptic giant dandelions in Kurosawa's Dreams, but prettier!

I adore this dress and have been wondering about it since seeing it on the Fitting Assistant Blog http://fittingassistant.blogspot.com/2010/09/anthropologie-mystery-floreat-dress.html She says the dress is Floreat, but she also didn't comment on the price point. I am guessing $150-$190? It is absoultely gorgeous and I can't wait to try it on! It looks great on you!

That dress is gorgeous! It looks fantastic on you. I love the gingko-ish leaves and the obi together.

omg that pattern is BEAUTIFUL! Although the obi belt goes amazingly well, I kinda wish that it wasn't attached so you could change it up a bit. But seriously, nice find!

The dress is perfect - the colors are gorgeous. The gingko flowers and the birds give it some flare, but not over the top.

My mom told me to buy lots of clothes before I got married so I could remember my single days.

I'm adding this to my wish list when it pops up online.
