anthropologie de chelly dress fitting review and styling options

hello there! just a quick review i had to share with you. though the print is still growing on me, the cut of this anthropologie de chelly dress is amazing enough to make me want it:

i love the sweetheart neckline. the colors seemed to work with my skin tone too. the print and belt are my only concerns. they might be a little too western for me to fully embrace, but i do think a different belt would make a world of difference. it fits true to size, i am wearing an 8 for your reference.

and now of course, some styling options for the dress.
option #1 is full of whimsy:

option #2 has the western spirit, with the good ol' looping lanes and some big hoop earrings:

option #3 is lady like glamour. i would just take off the dress' belt and wear with a classic trench (so cute right?!) and rhinestone bracelet:
