Anthropologie's Spring Dresses: Yay or Nay?

The Galen Dress ($128), one of Anthropologie's efforts to mix balance loose drape and shape definition.

Quick sidenote: Anthropologie sent out a first dibs email for its May catalogue yesterday. See the whole page here.

Spring is a lovely time of year for many reasons but for me one of the highlights is watching Anthropologie's dress section explode with tons of new offerings. Although I've admittedly liked their fall stuff a lot better than spring for a few years now, my wishlist is growing like a vine this year.

Let's talk thoughts on Anthro's dresses for Spring 2014 so far.

Runway to Everyday: Adam Lippes Spring 2014

Simple and classic in an unconventional material from Adam Lippes Spring 2014
ready-to-wear presentation at New York Fashion Week.

It's always possible that a Fashion Week presentation will be over the top. Mostly though it's a chance for designers to present their wares to buyers and get their product in stores. I never fail to be inspired by outfits on the runway! Sometimes they need a little adjustment to work off the runway, sometimes not. Runway to everyday is about translating runway looks to an everyday outfit.

Today, a beautiful satin dress from Adam Lippes' Spring 2014 collection gets the everyday treatment.

Anthropologie Has A New Promo This Weekend!!


Anthropologie has unveiled its latest weekend promotion -- take 20% off all full priced shoes! Unfortunately Free Shipping ended last night, but this promo is valid both online and in stores. This promotion lasts through Monday April 21 at 3 AM ET. For those with a birthday discount, this promo CAN be combined with the birthday discount.

Although the weather in NYC has been fluctuating terribly between pleasant and springlike and unable to escape winter's grip, I'm excited for this promotion! I'll have this post updated with some of my picks shortly. If only it applied to sale shoes too...
