Anthropologie: Pretty Little Dresses...

As I've mentioned numerous times before, I absolutely love wearing dresses...they make me feel extra feminine and girly. They bring to mind images of Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O., Marilyn Monroe, and Elizabeth Taylor. A time of glamour and ultimate femininity for desire to *borrow from the boys*, but to simply embrace the joy of being a girl, and all that goes with it. In most cases (depending on the dress) they can be just as comfortable as wearing pants or jeans, too. It's really just a matter of getting used to wearing them on a regular basis, IMO.  :)

For me, Anthropologie is my *go-to* store when I'm considering the purchase of a new dress, or when I simply want to window shop and daydream about what I would do or the places I would go in it. Here are some of the pretty little dresses currently topping my list...

*Flower Stand Dress Absolutely adorable and oh, so summery!
*Beau Ideal Dress. Cute, cute, the color and the print.
*Bright Bandana Dress. Great summer color and the paisley hemline is adorable.
*Mementos Maxi Dress. Such a flattering silhouette on this the blue motif especially.

*Artist's Rendering Dress. Wow! How lovely...
*Sky Stories Dress. Love the stripes, of course!
*Sugared Dress. Fun print and color combination..
*Oblique Blooms Dress. Be still my heart...

*Bilberry Dress. Yes, please!
*Hypnotic Maxi Dress. You had me at hello...
*Smocked Gauze Dress. I own a similar one in white so I would go for the green. This would also be super cute worn under a denim jacket or vest.
*Summer Ballad Maxi in Peach for feminine and flowy.

*Backswept Dress. The color combination on this one is so lovely, and I love the bow detail at the back.
*Dutch Yellow Shift. I just adore this print, the silhouette of the dress, and once again, the bow!
*Meyer Meringue Dress. What a happy color...the print is really fun, too!
*Sweet Osmanthus Shift. How beautiful is this dress? Love all the embroidery...

How do you feel about dresses? Do you wear them often? Have you found any lately that you absolutely adore? Do you have any pretty little dresses on your Anthropologie wishlist? Do you own any of the dresses on mine? Are there any you would highly recommend? Please do share! :)

Have a lovely day!



  1. I love love love their summer line, freaking expensive but I am so loving their styles!


  2. I love a pretty dress but just don't wear them as often as I'd like. I have one dress from ANthro that I got for a wedding...but that's it. I seem to wear a lot more skirts. Thats not to say there aren't a few dresses tempting me right now at Anthro though!

  3. your dress is perfect!!! keep inspiring me and stay fabulous.

  5. Hi FFM,

    I have also been loving the dress offerings from Anthro. I bought the Sunrise Shirt Dress in white... and in black! The black has a very Victorian feel and looks great with ballet flats.
    I'm going over now to check out your picks!

  6. Lovely theme of softness and femininity! Keep up the great postings, FFM ~

  7. Love this post! I wear dresses almost daily, and love your picks. Anthropologie is always my go-to store when I need a dress :)
