Anthropologie is having a huge tag sale this week. I've decided not to order off the website anymore though after paying $75 duty on a $280 order, so my only option was to see what was available in store.
I tried on this dress. There was only one left and it was in fairly poor condition, with some of the blossoms coming unstitched. My camera doesn't portray the colour accurately, and it was actually more of an orangey pink. The dress is fit and flare, fits true to size and drapes nicely. The sweetheart neckline is a little bit plunging in the front and you'd have to be careful about which bra you wear underneath. I gave this one a pass because of the damaged overlay.

Next, I tried on this skirt. Again, my iPhone 3 is not the most accurate tool out there. This skirt is a very vibrant and beautiful green, kind of like astroturf green. I'm wearing it with a sheer blue tank with a tie at the neck that was way too voluminous and sheer. Sorry, I didn't feel like posting photos of my bra online.
The skirt was also ridiculously voluminous. The ponte material is very stiff, and I wish I'd taken a photo of the skirt standing upright on the floor by itself after I took it off. It definitely is a bell skirt. I'd love to compensate for having Asian flat butt syndrome, but not to this extent! Definitely a pass.

Edited to add: I forgot to share what I actually did end up buying. These glasses! There is also a cat version, which might be of interest to Cynthia and Marcy, except that no cats would ever degrade themselves by doing tricks.
