De Chelly Fit Review


Before it went on sale and before I left for New York I stopped by the Mt. Lebanon Anthropologie and tried on the De Chelly dress. Please forgive my socks. It was too cold to bother removing them. The De Chelly is a very charming dress that I probably would be more drawn to if the temperature was warmer here. It is the kind of thing I'd want to wear on a picnic or on a boat. The rope style belt adds a nautical touch. I tried on an 8 and it fit well all over. Because of the length and my height I think I would prefer the petite length. It is nice that there is a petite option with this one! The dress is fully lined and the print is textured and threaded. The dress seemed to be of fine quality particularly for the sale price. I passed because it was still full price and because I considered the fabric and colorway to be best for summertime, I didn't rush to buy it even on sale. But a few bloggers have demonstrated how to make it winter appropriate. See some styling options by Kim from Anthroholic here.

That dress is stunning on you-- I really like the princess cut (is that what it's called?).

It's a shame everything is so pricey.

I bought this today - last one in the store and in my size! I'm in the freezing cold north and will probably be waiting to pull this one out until late spring. I couldn't resist it though - so cute!

I saw it in person today. Very nice fabric, I agree it's really summer appropriate. Although I think Kim made it work very well for winter!

this is one of my fav anthro pieces in awhile. i really like the soft color palette and the added length (though i know it is not always the easiest to wear). now i'm curious to see the petite length too.

That looks great on you! I think the length looks good actually.

I just did a charge send for that dress. I hadn't really noticed it online, but I tried one on in store recently and it's really cute!
