And…today I went back to anthropologie and tried both dresses on again for a friend who works there, and she agreed with nearly ALL of you that the first, brown print dress was the best. I was meeting another friend for lunch, so I had to leave and told her I’d come back and make my purchase. On the way in, I grabbed a new leather skirt to try on, just for fun…
And almost bought it. Everyone said it looked amazing – random people walking through the dressing room loved it. I loved it, but it’s leather. And I didn’t like that it showed my knees. But in this picture, with tights, I don’t mind that it shows my knees. And it looked awesome with just a white tee. Still, I was really nervous to buy a leather skirt; what would I wear with it? What bag would I carry?? So I didn’t get it and got the dress instead.
And as soon as I got home with it, I tried it on again with different sweaters, jackets, etc. on top…and I DO NOT LIKE IT. And I think it’s too big. But they didn’t have a size 10 in the store. Maybe I’m just stuck comparing it with the skirt, or any skirt that shape, for that matter. That shape is very good for me I think – narrow waist band, some pleating, slight a-line, and pockets. And just above the knees (even though I hate my knees).
I don’t know. I’m disappointed now. Sure, I can go to the other Anthropologie and try on the 10, but I’m thinking I might just need the skirt instead.
What do you think?
