Anthropologie, the Source for Spring Dresses

Once upon a time, nearly every piece in my wardrobe was from Anthropologie.  I was 22, and rocking the boho-kitschy thing.  It wasn’t me, but it worked at the time.    This season, their selection of fabulous dresses goes from flirty to pretty to sleek, and I am loving a lot of their pieces.  Here are a few of my favorites.


Bottlegreen Dress ($148)

This dress is perfect for an outdoor wedding.


Islington Pencil Dress ($158)

The texture on this dress is fantastic, and the barely-covering-the-knees length is so sleek and sexy.


Swirled Paisley Halter ($158)

Backyard barbecues, sunday brunches and baby showers have never been so stylish.


Norvel Dress ($78) 

I love the ballerina leotard details on the bust of this dress and the emerald green color.  It’s the perfect weekend dress.


Strathmore Dress ($118)

Add a cardigan and you’ve found a great casual Friday dress.

Why must the Anthropologie store be so close to my house?  Excuse me, I need to go freeze my debit card in a block of ice.

    They just posted a 20% off all dresses sale. Your post could not be more timely.

    I stopped shopping at Anthro a few years ago because I felt the prices were extremely high for the poor quality. For the most part, the items I’ve bought there pilled/faded/stretched out etc. very quickly even compared to low-level retailers like Old Navy. Belle, or readers, have you had different experiences with Anthro items?

      I think it depends on the item, the knit pieces seem to vary from designer to designer in terms of what wears well and what won’t last longer than this season. I have been very pleased with the dresses I have purchased from there over the last few years and all have held up very well. Also have a jacket that has been great for the more mild winter here in South Carolina.

        Thanks for your input, Leslie! Maybe I will give Anthro another shot…

    I can’t remember which store site I was on yesterday that all the skirts barely covered the model’s butt’s. So to see these lengths is a welcome change. You can (nearly) always take off some length. The reverse, not so much.
