Anthro announced a relatively large sale today, and where do you think I stopped after work? Nothing in the sale section screamed wanting to go home with me. Right at the entrance this display with the Half-Day Maxi Dress and the Gilded Estate Skirt caught my eye:
The Gilded Estate Skirt (style 24710063) in size 4 is the larger of my two sizes in Anthro skirts. The pattern is perfectly matched at the back and on the side seams:

The side has some ruching going on right below the waist, creating more curves. Overall, I liked this skirt better than J. Crew's No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Porcelain Paisley seen here before.
Another pretty skirt that winked at me was the Dilated Lace Skirt (style 24474645). (I am still getting a chuckle at some of the names Anthro uses for their items). I tried both size 2 & 4, with size 4 giving me a bit more length, but not by much. The top is the Slanted Layers Tee (style 24332751) size S and 'ivory.' This is my regular size in tops at Anthro. The top comes in 3 other colours as well. The 'ivory' is quite see-through.

Lastly, the Pilcro Rolled Crops (style 24556318) size 28. This seems to be my regular size in pants at Anthro. Loved these. They are higher waisted than the jeans I own, and am definitely wishlisting them. The top is the Parted Paisley Tank (style 24366783) in size S and 'blue' motif. The jeans may look better with the 'green' though.
