Today the Anthropologie of choice was Rockefeller Center. On a gorgeous sunny day the store was busy...as a bee! I was determined to find the bee tees if they were out. And they were! (They are not online so no link love.) I quickly grabbed a medium in each and kept browsing.
The selection was about the same as Soho for new items so I drifted to the sale room pretty quickly. It was quite crowded. I know stores do this on purpose but I hate how cramped it is in there. Plenty of nice finds though. I grabbed the Chinook Cardigan (sold out online, now $70 in-store) and the Curl & Twirl Sweater (also sold out online, now $50 in-store). I re-tried both on in a medium but didn't buy either. I was hoping against hope to find a Sgraffito Squareneck...it finally went on sale for $50 and I missed my size small! No luck though. I did spot the Tilework Crops (now $50), the Fertile Loam Mini (now $70), the In-the-Boughs Skirt (now $50), the Welcome to the Sun tank (now $30) and the Bright Dawn Top (now $40).
I made one last trip around the store and grabbed a few items to try on. Quick hits below.
In the Details Dress ($168): This Ella Moss number was super soft to the touch. It's also totally impractical for me but I tried it on anyway. I liked the detail of the racerback and the double straps. The waist sat a bit funny on me but I think that is due to my chest. This dress looked pretty silly on me -- it made me look cartoonishly large in the chest and as a result the skirt sat funny. I tried both a medium and a large and both had the same effect. If you are lean and straight through I think this skirt would be amazing.
Spring Sightings Cardi ($68): From the front this cardigan was great! It accented my height in a flattering way and I loved being able to hide my hands in the slouchy pockets. The flutter sleeves were long enough to sit nicely on my arms. From the back I kind of looked like a sack. I am still wish-listing this. With a pair of skinny jeans, a white tee and a nice set of heels this will be a winner!
Sketched Outline Top ($68): The subtle pinstriping of this Odille top looked a bit masculine from far away and I thought to myself, 'that's kind of fug.' Upon closer inpsection I noticed the slightly frilly collar and the interesting shoulder details and I changed my mind and grabbed a size 8 to try on. If this shirt were 2 inches longer I would have bought it. The smocking detail was cute but sat higher on my waist then I wanted it to. Otherwise it fit like a dream and the v-neck gave a peek but wasn't too revealing. Wish listed!
Suspension Tank ($48): This had Florida trip written all over it. The crocheted straps would not really hide a bra too well but otherwise I had few complaints. I was wearing cropped shorts today and it made for a cute overall look. One more for the wish list.
The one thing I did buy today was one of the Bee Tees ($58). I chose the white one (real life shot above, two below). The bee and flower design was attractive and I decided I liked the flourish better up rather than the yellow tee which had it along the bottom. Really though I would have loved either one. The white tee is slightly sheer (sigh) and had a nice v-neck. I bought the shirt in my true size medium.
Tomorrow it's off to 5th Ave. Somebody stop me...
