Review: Anthropologie in sequins and Modena faux leather

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.
