This lucky gal just spent a few days in THE big city and took advantage of the free 'personal shopper' service at Anthropologie. I was a little dubious at first, since I'm kind of an introvert, but it seemed like a fun thing to try once. Boy am I ever happy I did- it turns out my wishlist is kinda old and so everyhing was languishing in a secret backroom somewhere! I went into the Rockefeller centre store in the morning to check the store out, and was disappointed that many of the things I wanted to try weren't even there. Well, when I came back, Alison had filled a big changing room with everything I had been hoping to try, alongside layering pieces in a bunch of fun colours and textures and just let me 'go to town'. I had a blast, and it seemed like one of those days where everything fit, and everything is beautiful and squeal-worthy. It was pretty tough to narrow my selections down at the end of a marathon session.
Now, I went in with a pretty good idea of my most-desired pieces, but I still came away with a surprise or two. However since this is probably the one and only time I will ever be able to review things before they hit the sale cycle or come to me second-hand via the trade board, here are a few of the newer pieces I tried on.
|Rodna dress, size 2|
|Rodna dress, size 0|
|Layered column dress,size small; Arched pleats pullover size XS (?), Halation necklace|
|Graublau Blazer, size 0|
|Ihrin shirtdress, size 2|
|Trenchcoat skirt, size 4; Instant classic tee XS, Paintburst scarf|
|Colloquium trousers, size 4; Nicoleta blouse, size 0 or 2|
|Colorblocked oxford heels,size 36.5|
|Test pattern dress, size XS|
|Test pattern dress, size small|
Okay, that was tough, and I super really very much appreciate people who do regular reviews with consistent photos and sizing information! Tomorrow I'll let you know what I brought home (I mean, you just know the painted plaid dress did, right?!) and then I have a set of beautiful very $$$$ Leifsdottir reviews I can share too. Sigh. That was fun, actually.
