anthropologie mompos dress fitting review and styling options

well better late than never no?

the mompos dress by tracy reese arrived at my local store last week (a total relief that i didn't have to spend for shipping!) i tried on both the 6 and the 8 (usually i am an 8 or medium in tracy reese dresses) and felt like the 8 was the best fit. i could zip the 6 up, but it was just a little too tight for comfort, so i would recommend going with your usual size in tracy reese.

i love the lemon yellow and cornflower blue combination. so perfect! this dress is definitely high on my wishlist as i can totally wear it to work (add a blazer and we are all set!), but i am hoping for a sale first <fingers crossed> :)

until next time,


  1. Thanks for the review. This dress is giving me fits, I just keep wavering between two sizes and second guessing myself. I think I'm going to have to exchange the size. Looks fab on you though!

  2. Awwe, you are too kind! Thank you for the lovely compliment. I always ADORE your stylings, so it means a lot that you liked mine :) This dress is on its way to me so I can't wait to try out some of these looks!

  3. Wow that dress looks great on you. I think I may cave and order it now. I love the styling options too!

  4. thank you! i really liked the color, but still debating. hopefully it makes it to sale! :)
