Anthropologie updated their homepage and my interest was piqued by their suggestion to indulge in silk. I'm in! I covet many of the pieces they highlight. I've been ever less patiently waiting for the Afloat Blouse ($88) to go on sale; the Bungalow Gables Dress ($138) is just perfection in dress form; and the Confetti Whirl Dress ($168) looks like a fun frock! I tried on the Electric Age Halter Dress ($178) over the weekend and while the dress was lovely neither the 6 nor the 8 fit me correctly on top. Both bowed out strangely at my chest.
But something must be wrong with me because my favorite item on the page is the Two Birds Romper ($128). Yep, that's right, a romper! The model shot is unconvincing on the product page but I feel like I could totally rock that thing. Maybe with my hair back, some high heels and a fringed-out hobo? What is going on with me? Whatever it is I think Shannon over at Wardrobe Review caught it too because she questions her love of the Aqua Surf Girl Gladiators ($168)...and I think those kinda rock too.
I think it is the rich jewel tone of the romper that draws me in. And it looks kind of swingy-fun to wear. So am I nuts? Or has Anthropologie correctly identified the trend that I already see around NYC? And what is with Anthro suddenly turning so trendy? Not sure I'm totally into this J.Crew-esque style left turn.
