Because I did! Two of the dresses I tried on aren't online yet so that's the problem!
Dagmar Shirtdress, size 10 ($148)
Sugar & Cream Dress, size 12 ($158)
Discovered Lace Dress, size 10 ($158)
Mystery Moulinette Soeurs Dress, size 12 ($178)
I actually own two Moulinette Soeurs Dresses: the Optimist Dress and the Swirling Villages, Surplice Dress. The former is a size 8. The latter is a size 12 and I had to have it relined because the original lining was too tight and taken in up top (thankfully I got it on super sale for $50). So I knew going in that sizing is pretty wacky with this designer. Since this dress is sheath style and more similar to the Swirling Villages, Surplice Dress, I went with the 12, assuming my hips would be an issue. They were. The pattern on this dress is pretty and I liked the faux wrap and surplice neckline. This pattern would be great under a blazer or cardigan in court. Unfortunately, the bodice on the 12 was pretty big on me and I'd need to take it an awful lot for it to fit.
Mystery Purple (or Brown if you are colorblind like Anthropologie) Dress, size Medium ($118)
The tag on this dress calls it brown. I grabbed it because it looked eggplant to me and was actually surprised to see it listed as brown when I took a picture of the tag. I think not, Anthropologie. This dress is cute, but nothing special. The empire waist was a bit weird - it was a little too low and ended up hitting me at the widest part of my ribcage, not the smallest part. The cowlneck added to that bulk and somehow tiny busted me ends up looking rather chesty in this dress! Unfortunately I look hippy too because the length is a bit short for as poofy as the dress is: I don't have a problem with short dresses, but when there's poof, I like those extra inches. The dress has a great cubic texture that I liked a lot - the overlay fabric seemed really delicate and I'd worry about it snagging though.
That's all for this week. I'm in NYC right now where I have the whole day to occupy myself. Will I use the time to hit up one (or more) of the Anthropologies in the City? Only time will tell! Although hopefully as you all read this, I'm rubbing elbows with Dr. May! So much excitement!
