I recently stopped into my local Anthropologie.
I wanted to try on a few beauts that have been catching my eye.
One in particular was the Wisteria Halter dress.
I really wanted to love this dress. I've spent hours oogling it online, as well as on other bloggers. Sadly this wasn't a great fit for me.
This is a size 12, which fit perfectly on top, but was too large in my waist and hips.
I imagine that if I belted this dress, the fit problems in the lower quadrant would be fixed, but I truly don't want to purchase a dress for 148.00 that has to be belted.
The quality was quite nice, it was lined and felt substantial. The colors are amazing. I love the print. The back is adorable and unique. I feel this would be a great dress for a summer wedding or garden party. In winter I would pair it with some dark purple tights and a dark green cardi (maybe purple, or yellow?).
Due to an undying love of the print and the back, if this dress goes on sale I'll get it.
Until then, I can stop pining.
p.s-thanks for the well wishing, I'm currently off the Robitussin but not out of the woods yet. The lesson in this is get a flu shot ( my mom told me as much and I defiantly refused "I'm a youngster with the health of a horse" right, until the year of the consistently cold prone.).
