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?
