Anthropologie: The Secret Treasure Dress in *Blue*

Hello Everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic week! The boys and I have had a really fun and enjoyable stay at the beach this week and will be packing up to head home soon, but I wanted to post the IRL pics of the Secret Treasure Dress in Blue as promised in this post last Saturday where I reviewed the dress in Green.


The Secret Treasure Dress retails for $118 and comes in sizes XSmall-XLarge. The description on the website reads:

"Maeve's retro-inspired frock is a hiding place for a plethora of intricate details. Disguised pockets, trickling vertical stripes and ruffled capped sleeves come alive with a closer look.

* Front pockets
* Button closure
* Cotton; cotton lining
* Machine wash
* 38"L
* Imported"

The cotton is lightweight and perfect for summer, plus it's super soft and comfortable, not to mention machine washable. The dress is lined and has tiny snaps between the buttons that help guard against any gaping. It can be dressed up with heels or worn more casually with flats. I purchased both colors of the dress because I wanted to see them IRL.The Blue is actually more of a Blue-Violet color, and it has stripes that are probably a very dark blue-violet, but appear to me as if they could almost be black.

Here I am wearing it in size XSmall with my Black Leather Kork-Ease *Bette* Wedge Sandals.

Belted:
I absolutely love the fit of this dress and the feel of the fabric against your skin. It's such a perfect little dress for summer. I do like the color of the Blue, but will probably wait and try to get it on sale since I already have the Green one. I would also love to see this dress offered in more colors...it's that good. :)

Here are a few more Blue Dress options:

*Halogen Ruched Jersey Dress in Twilight Blue
*Del Mar Dress in True Blue
*Balsa Burn Out Dress in Beach Blue

Have a beautiful and blessed day!

xoxo,

  2. Love the look, and I want the cognac Cork Ease sandals. I have a Nordies gift card slated for those sandals! Also, thanks for posting the other day about the striped v-neck Target alternative to the J. Crew striped bateau top. I picked up the Target one yesterday and LOVE it. For some reason boatneck styles (esp. with horizontal stripes) don't flatter me, but the V-neck does :)

    I need to get some tan, too. You look fabulous!

  6. Love the blue-another great color on you. I also really like that this dress has sleeves-flattering and bra friendly. Did you know that Anthro ships from East Coast to West? This beauty isn't even in stores here yet. My SA said tomorrow or Monday is should arrive.
