This anthro store had more sale items than new items, and not a lot of either. SO SAD. I only saw a handful of items from the new arrivals page in store, and a lot of it felt so dark and autumnal. Not fun for July.
I remain on my quest for shorts, but I feel like I’m just going to have to give up after this. I had pinned my hopes on the Pilcro Denim Rollups, because all review mentioned them fitting thigh, but alas. Nope. I tried on three sizes:
30: fits waist, nowhere else
31: Fits hips and maybe thighs, but don’t look good.
32: Plenty of room for thighs, can’t keep them up.
Cut-offs forever. Sigh.
I can’t find this skirt via Google or anything, rats. It was $29 on sale. It looked adorable on the hanger, but poofy and fairy dress up on me. Total bummer.
Gust Striped Chemise in white, medium. I loved this – it felt so soft and lovely (jersey), was super comfortable and draped perfectly. Mad love. But alas, this is the back:
So cute! So not work appropriate! Although props for covering the bra entirely. I don’t have any back cut-out tops, but I’d been thinking that the style could work with a contrast color camisole under it, to make it work appropriate. Unfortunately, the only thing I had to test that was the white tank:
Clearly not a winner. But maaaaaaaaaaaaybe with a lower cut and narrow camisole? Thoughts?
Vinca Minor dress, in medium. I wanted to love this dress – if it worked, I was ready to bring it home with me. I adore the blue and the lace, and it’s a great silhouette. The bodice has the solid blue lining, and the skirt is something of a plaid. And you can’t tell me this isn’t like wearing a Tardis:
The Tardis is totally peeking out.
But, unfortunately, it wasn’t great. It’s three layers: a petticoat, the blue lining and the outer netting. Both the petticoat and outer netting are scratchy and both irritate the skin. (The outer netting is longer than either of the inner layers.) It also didn’t lie right on me and made me so wide. So it looked bad and it felt bad, and I was never able to tie the back up anyway:
There are SO MANY cute dresses on the site right now (Colorblocked Shirtdress! Ink-Set Blooms Dress!) and none of them were there. Woe. I have to get back soon – I have a giftcard and it wants to be used!
