anthropologie tangerine flicker dress fitting review

hello! i have so much catching up to do with all of you. i have tried on so many things at anthropologie (and j.crew) and need to share them pronto.

including sharing a photo of me in this gorgeous tracy reese dress otherwise known as the tangerine flicker dress, available at anthropologie.


thanksgiving dress anyone? contrary to some of the online reviews, i thought it fit true to size and worked perfectly on me. i went with an 8. the 6 zipped, but felt a little tight over my chest - so 8 it is!

i was surprised with how well the orange worked on my fair skin. the slip completely covered bra straps and the back was high enough to also cover the back of my bra. amazing!

i'm holding out just a bit longer, but if the mompos dress was any indication, this one isn't going to sale anytime soon.

in the meantime, if you are looking for another color combo, i went searching on tracy reese's website (nordstrom also had it, but only in an 8).

what do you think? i like the contrasting colors, but i think the orange is more up my alley. and unfortunately, this black and ecru version will set you back $525. eesh. here's hoping for a sale.

until next time,

because i needed a new clutch...

hello lovelies! did you see what popped up on the anthropologie website this morning?
polka rounds clutch

oh so pretty. so i got right to work on what it would pair with. everything of course :)  it looks like it might be related to the bag that roxy gave a sneak preview to here.

what to wear with a polka dot clutch, option #1

loving it with the fluttering obi dress. but it also works with a simple pencil skirt and tee:

and lastly, it goes back to jeans perfectly. i like the contrast of navy gingham with the dots.
