Anthro - June (l)

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.

What else I'm liking at Anthro:

Current/Elliott Fletching denim skirt
Half-day maxi dress
Oleander openwork shift
Scrolled column dress
Anadia top
Pilcro stet slit crop

Anything new at Anthro on your wishlist? Thanks again for visiting, and have a great Wednesday, everyone!


  1. I love the half-day maxi dress! And the dilated lace skirt looks really good on you. Ditto on the name though; dilated? What? I'm currently working on the labour and delivery unit at the hospital and I can only think of one thing. xD

    1. Jyoti, that's hilarious! Since I am/was a chemist, dilated means something different to me, but it's equally funny.

  2. I much prefer the Gilded Estate skirt over the Porcelain Paisley skirt too, Rose. This one looks really good on you. Any thoughts of a possible purchase down the road?

    1. Thanks, FFM! Yes, I have wishlisted it (as if I didn't have enough pencil skirts already). :D

  3. I love the Gilded Estate Skirt; it looks great on you! I had to snag this one when I saw it in the store! I really like the Porcelain Paisley skirt too though.

  4. I am having hard time deciding which one i like the best, skirt it is- they are both very appealing in their own ways.

    1. I think both would look smashing on you, Slastena!

  5. Love the gilded estate skirt on you! The print is beautiful- I thought perhaps I had enough paisley print pencil skirts (2) but you never know what might get added to my wishlist!

    I love the colours and style of the half-day maxi, but I don't know if it will make it to sale. Definitely couldn't swing a full price purchase on such a casual piece! However I did actually see someone wearing it the other day, and it looked lovely. I had to do a double take because I NEVER see people wearing Anthro in Montreal, and particularly not something so new!
