K/R: More Anthro!

The mailman came to the door with two more boxes from Anthro today - and for some reason, they pack one thing in each box (that's probably why they charge $20 for shipping!) but it works just fine for me - more fun of taking boxes apart! :)

For your consideration, there are two dresses :)

#1-4) The construction is not bad on this dress, although it's only lined in the top half, it would be super easy to wear a slip on the bottom, so this doesn't really bother me too much. The "origami fold" on the chest I thought would really bug me, but I kind of like it. I think that it's pretty easy to dress up or down, and the pattern is one that is forgettable enough :p

#5-9) This second dress is wonderfully soft; I am pretty sure it is almost more comfy than my jammies and I'd totally wear it on call. It is also very wrinkle-resistant, which is always good if I'm sitting for a long period of time. I am thinking it might more be a casual dress in the summer and I can always wear some tights with it in the winter and some boots - it's a bit short for my current summer, aesthetic though. And there are pockets!!! :) I think it makes me look a smidgin preggers in #5 - but who knows :p

What do you guys think?

    I really like them both on you.  :)

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    I like #1 the best of the two, but if your budget permits, I think they are both keepers. The comfort factor alone makes me really like #2! And I see no prefers anywhere.

    And I love the bird necklace!

  • pastrygirl replied 5 years ago

    I love them both on you! I think they look MUCH better on you than the models, too!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    I love the first one! That's an 11 out of 10.

  • pil replied 5 years ago

    I like both too, but would choose 1 over 2 because I love the pattern. Is the neckline of 2 a little low for work?

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    #1 is stunning on you. Keep!! As for #2, it all depends ...I think it is less versatile. But if the comfort factor is super high and the budget allows....then yes! 

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    The first one looks like it was made for you. The fit is lovely. I like the second one best with the denim jacket. Dresses look amazing on you.

  • Adelfa replied 5 years ago

    Pretty dresses! You look great in both. And no sign of a bump. I was wondering about the neckline of #2 too. (For work I mean.)

  • lyn* replied 5 years ago

    Thanks ladies; I can easily keep both of the dresses, I got them both on mega clearance (asian magpie gene) and so cost isn't really a factor here; the second dress was only $39 and the first one was $79, but they are well within my month's budget, since one of the other dresses and a blazer were oversold by Anthro and I will be getting that rebated :)

    I thought about the neckline for #2 as well for work, but there is definitely enough room under it to layer a crisp shirt or a pussy-bow top :) 

    PS: HAHA; I doubt that they look better on me than the models, but thanks for your flattering words and advice ladies, I appreciate it as always :)

    As always great picks!!! I love #1 the best of the two!!

  • Sona replied 5 years ago

    what Angie said. pass on the second.

  • replied 5 years ago

    I love the first one on you. I would pass on the second.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Wow lyn - the first dress looks like they made it for you. Positively stunning. I'm not a huge fan of the second dress but if you think it will be versatile for you, then keep.

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    I like them both although I prefer the first.  Not because it looks better on you (you look great in both dresses) but because I prefer the pattern on the first dress over the second.  You don't look preggers at all - go see my posts if you want to see preggers :)
