Otta Dress Review
Oh man. What a mess. So the Otta Dress looked very cool on the hanger, with its interesting color palette and graphic geometric print. It is a silk cotton blend so I was glad to see the natural fiber composition. I grabbed an 8 and it fit? I... don't know if it fit, actually. Maybe a size up would have prevented the tenting happening underneath my bust? Maybe a size down would have meant less fabric up top? Maybe it is just not meant for a bust like mine? Anyway, I am confused about how this one is supposed to fit. It fits on my body technically, I guess. But it looks weird and bunchy. Maybe the proportions were off? Maybe a petite version would have worked better? But this dress was a bad scene on me. I love the print and think it is a cool idea but not for me, obviously. I wish I had more to say about it. I guess the side buttons were very cute and the kind of special detail that brings me back to this store. But there is a reason why I've not bought anything from Anthropologie in 2012. And the fit of this dress exemplifies it.
