So nice I bought it twice: Bold Boutonnière Dress


I felt like I hit the lottery when I found a poorly titled ebay auction for the black colorway of the popular summer/fall 2009 Bold Boutonnière dress from Anthropologie. The seller graciously accepted my request for a BIN and the dress came soon after. It is telling that I am more excited to find past season pieces (even when I already own versions of them) than the stuff that is just going on sale now for fall 2010. Anyway, I wore this dress yesterday to campus. It yielded many compliments as the Bold Boutonnière often does. I kept my cardigan on all day but hope to wear it as shown on the left to a holiday party or two. The skirt's stripes remind me of gift wrapping so it seems fitting. Over top of it, I wore a cashmere cardigan by Aqua and when outside, my Larrimor's Burberry find.

I recently bought this dress on eBay too but it is tight in the bust and is giving me the undesirable "pancake boob". What a shame because it looks good everywhere else.

Crys, I'm sorry to hear that! Is it an issue that can be fixed with shapewear or a different undergarment? I'm sure you could resell on ebay or in the trade market at effortless anthropologie but if you love it I hope you can make it work somehow!

Tricia, thank you so much! They pop up on ebay pretty regularly.

Gee, I have a lot of saved searches and use my ebay and a snipe service so that a lot of it is automated. But thank you! I am sure you can do similar stuff if you know what you are looking for.

Erin, thanks so much! I am surprised that it didn't look nice on you too! I bet it did.
