~ Dear Creatures Trinnette Shirtdress, Small ~
This dress looked really big in the Medium, on the hanger, so I grabbed a Small. It's definitely the best fit. I like the navy Gingha on the dress and the lace scalloped shoulders.
I wasn't that impressed with the shape of the dress. It could have been a little more nipped in the waist, especially since the back has some pleating that makes the dress widen out. Still, it's a very cute dress and will be great for Summer.

I liked the light chambray material of this, which is why I tried it on. It definitely needs a belt to give it more shape. There's enough length to still be modest if you do add a belt. The hem is slightly high-low, with the back being longer. It wasn't a love for me though it is sleeveless and had pockets. There's also a light jersey slip that comes with the dress.
~ Collette Dinnigan Tied Acionna Silk Dress, size 8 ~
This dress is screaming to be worn at a Summer wedding. The size 8 did not fit. I could not get it zipped past the waistband. I don't know if that was because of the seaming at the waistband or my wider ribcage. I always have trouble in that area, when using a side zip. The ties at the shoulder are decorative only. The v-neck is just a tad low but since this is more of a special occasion dress I don't think it matters.
This seems to be a new designer at Anthropologie and I'll need to try on a few more items to gauge the proper fit in this brand. There is also a shirt and maxi dress in this same print.
~ San & Soni Loka Tunic Dress, Small ~
Mine. Mine. MINE! I loved this dress. I loved how this fit and draped on me. I loved the beading and design of the embroidery. The beading didn't weigh down the dress and the material wasn't heavy. And, I loved the length. Exactly where I like a special occasion dress to hit, a few inches above the knee but still able to sit down properly.
My only, single issue with this dress was that I have no where to use it. I have a few nice dresses for weddings, showers, special date nights, etc. so I don't need another one. I really don't. Even with my birthday discount, this dress was a little pricey. Especially for a wear-once-a-year dress.
What do you think of this next set of dresses? Would you try any of these on?
