Fitting Room Reviews and an OOTD!

I couldn't resist the temptation to do some more reviews, so I headed to my local Anthropologie to try on some items that have been on my wishlist for quite some time. I had very high hopes but did leave a tad bit disappointed (and close to empty handed). Do you ever have one of those days that no matter what you try on you just feel disgusting? That's me. The past few days I have been bingeing on food and don't know why. I have always had good control over what I eat, but the past week there's no stopping this monster. I have gained five pounds in a week (eeek!). What's wrong with me??!?! I seriously need to do a few miles on the elliptical tonight ( and tomorrow, and the next day...)

Sorry. Tangent. Rant Over.

But any who- here are my reviews!

Height of Summer Dress

The first thing that drew me to this dress was the rich color. Its gorgeous! I tried on a 6, but definitely needed an 8. The dress was a little stiff and fit me weird. I only had time to try on what I had in the room, but I think I would have liked it a lot more if I had tried the 8.

Sure Lock Dress

The picture online makes this dress seem much more flattering than it really fits. I tried on the 8 here and it was kind of bunch even though I wouldn't have gone any smaller. The bow is VERY awkward looking. It's also very blah. I felt like a sack of potatoes in this dress.


Keep it Simple Tunic

This is probably my favorite item that I tried on. The color is beautiful and the fit was very flattering. I tried on a 6 and I think an 8 would fit a tad better in my hips. I really like this top and *if* it goes on sale I will be sure to snag it!

Lunar Eclipse Top

I tried on a Medium, and the fit was good up top, but the bottom was too "poofy". The print on the bottom is nice, but very sheer. You could see my belly and belt right through it.

I tried this on in a Medium and it fit pretty true to size. I really like the ruffles and cut. It is very slimming in the waist. If my arms were more toned, I would have loved it more! 

Lightning Flower Tunic

I made a trip to the sale room and came across this cute top. I tried it on in a medium and it seemed to fit true to size. I really like the drawstring on it because of the slimming effect. If it would have been $29.95 instead of $49.95 I would have snatched it up!

I did end up purchasing one thing: Double Torsade Necklace

I've been wanting this for a while after seeing it in some of Natalie's OOTDs.

I decided to feature it in today's OOTD:

Top: (Forever 21, not online) (similar here)
Cardigan: Juniors Pointelle Cardigan Sweater in Dog Bone (Target)
Necklace: Double Torsade Necklace (Anthropologie)
Sandals: Michael Antonio "Dava" (Piperlime)
Jeans: (Nordstrom, not online) (similar here)

My drawing for this darling owl necklace will be taking place
this Friday and 12pm MST.  Don't miss out. Enter here!
