Stopped by Anthropologie to check the sales and tried on two dresses: the Starlit Stripes and the Modena Shift.
First, the Starlit dress: This sequined dress in blue and black stripes was on my watch list, mainly due to its longer length 😉
Pros: the length!! Perfect for tall girls, may be too long for regular but there is petite version available. I love the the fit of the sequined top, and the voluminous skirt actually looks pretty nice 🙂
Cons: itchy!!! Uncomfortably itchy I should add…Also, the skirt is a mixture of polyester…for that price, I would gladly pass.
Sissi’s verdict: Will Pass (sad though, really liked the length 😦 )
Next is the faux leather shift dress.
Pros: gorgeous color!! I love the beige/maroon color (the website calls it nude). Also the contrasting cotton on the back softens the toughness of the faux-leather. I love the shape as well, similar to a pencil dress. Nicely pulled together, Anthropologie!
Cons: too short for taller girls. Additionally, I am not crazy about the bulk around the waist, which usually happens with straight dresses…on me at least.
Verdict: Keeper if you are comfortable with the length.
