So it's my lunch break and I've hunkered down at my desk with a bowl of cereal and now I've got a few Anthropologie reviews to put up and some lovely blogs to catch up on. So let's get to it!
First up, the 'Arribada Current' dress. Boyfriend rather likes turtles, so when I saw this dress, I knew that it was coming to the dressing room with me. The color is a really vibrant green in real life and the turtle print is just darling. The V-neck front wasn't too low, so there shouldn't be any concern of "accidental exposure," and the V-dip in the back isn't too low either, so you can easily wear a regular bra. I'd say, though, that this dress runs a little big. I tried on my usual size 4 and while it wasn't annoyingly baggy, it was a bit looser than I think that its supposed to be. I wasn't a fan of the included waist sash either, but that's easily removable. This dress would look really cute and summery paired with a wide brown or nude belt or a skinny gold one. It is also a little longer than I'd like, as it hit me right below the knees, making my 5'2" self look even tinier. I'm sure taller gals won't have a problem with this. I'll probably be snatching this up if it makes it to the sales rack.

Next up is the 'Circled Adornments' tank. I'm a huge sucker for floaty, billowy things, and especially floaty, billowy things that involve tiers, so when I saw this, I knew I had to give it a go. It fits TTS as I took my usual size S in it, though looking back on these pictures, I think I could probably go down to an XS to cut down on some of the volume. The fabric is more of a soft pink in real life than the pictures show. The back is interesting in that it's jersey for the most part with some of the tier-fabric tacked on at the bottom. This makes it look really cute under cardigans or jackets, but kind of odd on its own. I loved the little crochet-style neckline, but seeing as how I already own the slightly similar 'Free Flow' tank, I passed on this one.

I saw this the 'Simian Tableau' skirt and had to try it on for Tara B. from Little Girl Big Closet, who mentioned the skirt in this post. It's definitely a kooky number! I included a close-up of the print further down, and as you can see, the whimsical little scene depicted on the skirt shows several monkeys, cranes, trees, and swirly clouds. This skirt is one for the bolder fashionistas. As for the fit, this runs SMALL. I tried it on in my regular size 6 and it was way too tight, as the (horribly unflattering) picture shows. It fit across the waist, but the bum was toooo tight! I don't know if this means that sizing up would have fixed the fit issue or if sizing up would make the waist too big and the bum just right. Girls with some junk in their trunk: beware!

That's it! If you have any more questions, ask away in the comments or shoot me an email and I'll answer to the best of my ability!
Also, sorry for my J.Crew lovers who aren't getting as many reviews as usual! I'll try to make the trek to J.Crew more often, though it'd make things a lot easier if a J.Crew would just open up closer to me already!
