anthropologie samhain dress fitting review and options

over the thanksgiving weekend i had the chance to try on the samhain dress by eva franco at anthropologie. the colors weren't for me, but i do think it would be the perfect holiday dazzler!


i am wearing the size 8 in the photos which is true to size for eva franco for me. i think that it might have run a smidge big and could have tried the 6 as well - but was happy with the fit of the 8 and a little crunched for time.  the dress is much prettier in person - and i hope the close up of the fabric illustrates this. because of this, i think the dress can work in a couple different ways.

first, taking it a little bit softer with cream and gold:

or going a little edgier by wearing it with black velveteen jacket:

the next option was inspired by a mannequin i saw in the store. it takes the dress to a more casual level, allowing for more versatility in your closet:
