anthro fitting room pictures

Sorry I've been MIA this week, work has been crazy, but I managed to try a few things on at anthropologie.

Also, on a side note, I can't believe I have 88 followers!! I feel like just started this little blog and I'm so happy to have all you lovely readers :)

I was so excited to see the Bayan Dress at my store, but also a little apprehensive because the online reviews are pretty bad... The colors are just as pretty in real life as they are online and I love the accordion style fabric of the dress. Most of the reviews online mention that it is just a bunch of fabric and not flattering, but I actually liked the dress and thought that with the sash tied right under the bust it was super cute! I could also see how this could be way too long on shorter girls because I am 5'7" and it came right to my knees. 

Love, love, love, love the Cooling Magma Dress!! Sorry for the crappy iphone pics, but the colors are gorgeous in real life! I sized up to a 2 knowing that this dress was slim fitting on the lower half and I have some hips and it fit perfectly! The pleating around the hips worried me a little, but because I sized up the pleats weren't an issue at all. I took this home with me ♥


  1. I really like the first dress, the colors are so gorgeous and you look great in blue.

  2. You are a knockout in that Cooling Magma dress. I really like it, and agree that it is gorgeous in person. Unfortunately, I don't know when or where I would wear it to.

  3. Wow! You look great in the cooling magma dress!

  4. love the second dress on you.
    i reallly enjoy your reviews.
    you often wear the snakebite belt and you are a size 0.does it fit you tight or loose?what size do you have in the belt?
    i am a true 0 and petite and wondering if i should order the belt in S?

  5. thanks ladies for the sweet comments! :)

    ina - I wear a size S in the snakebite belt. If I wear the belt around my natural waist it is slightly loose, but still works. I have the belt in both brown and grey and I wear them all the time - it is a great belt!

  6. You looked good in both dress but the Cooling Magma was a stand out for you. I love the colors on that dress.

    I was also eyeing the Bayan dress but the reviews were horrible online. So, I decided against it. But I thought you looked beautiful in it.

  7. I love the cooling magma dress Vanessa! it is sooo cute! I was at Anthro yesterday and saw it in person so I know how pretty the colors are.

  8. I love BOTH of those dresses!!!
