Additions to the wishlist + picks around the webby world

Beachy dreaming, wishly listy. The Olas Caftan ($78).

Before Anthropologie's June catalogue appears on the website, here's what I've added to my wishlist recently. Plus, what's caught my eye around the web and in other stores.

I was going to wishlist both the Rosalyn Dress ($298) and the Tweeded Colorblock Shift ($275) for work until I saw how short they are. I don't know why this is such a recurring issue with Anthro lately but it's a total bummer. Similarly, I'm rejecting this Bailey 44 dress as being too short for work...but approving it as just right for summertime dates. Elsewhere, I'm in love with this Kate Spade dress -- never met a jeweled neckline I didn't like! I love the neckline on this Tory Burch dress too, and the one Atlantic Pacific just stunned in was also on my wishlist though now it's off. It will always make me think of AP now. Also hunting down this Tracy Reese dress (though I am disappointed to read in the reviews that the production version differs from the model shot, boo).

One place I've had fantastic luck lately is LOFT, to the point where I'm having a bit of an identity crisis. I love...LOFT?!?! But I do. I purchased this dress (much whiter in real life) and this one and they are both pure perfection. Here's another great eyelet option. I've worn the latter out on a couple of weekend social dates with great success! It's so great that LOFT offers regular, petite and even tall versions of most of their dresses! LOFT's stuff seems to be running huge so I sized down to a 4 in both. I also ordered this dress (going back -- a little cheap-feeling to me) and this one (I need to size down again to a 2, eep). And I have my eye on several more. Until 10 AM EST you can take $50 off your order of $100+ with the code FLASH if you so choose...and I most likely will.

In skirts, I'm intrigued by this Nordstrom offering which is part mini, part knee-length. ASOS has something similar in its Curve section. Madewell has absorbed the message that we want longer skirts, sort of. I like this longer offering and could maybe make this shorter one work. Maybe not. The longer skirt would be cool as a de facto dress with the matching cami, or you could vary it a bit with the same pattern in a different color. You can take 20% off select styles at Madewell today only with the code 24HOURSALE.

Speaking of de facto dresses, Clover Canyon is having a sale right now and I've purchased this crop and this skirt hoping they will work together on me. If not it was fun trying!

What have you added to your wishlist recently, Anthropologie or otherwise? What purchases have you been happy with lately?
