OOTD: Rose & Hortensia

So today was Anthropologie's big Tag Sale and it was kinda a let down for me. I was expecting an extra % off since they opened their doors early and everything. But it was pretty much just a regular old sale day to me. I did find the AG Stevies in Plum so that made me happy! Did you pick anything up from the tag sale??

Review: Maia Column Dress

When I saw the Maia Column Dress on Anthropologie's website, I was instantly smitten. I already own the Layered Column Dress and love it so I knew I was in trouble. I tried it on in the store but I wanted to take it home and see how it would work with items in my closet. For the price, I need to make sure I can put together several outfits with it. 
The colors pop on the dress and will be easy to mix and match with a multitude of things. The brightness makes it perfect for spring/summer but I also think it would transition into Fall with a pair of boots. 
And I love how the colors go with my J.Crew Penelope Mary Jane's!
It fits the same as the other Bailey 44 dresses I've tried on - I had to size up to a small. I'm usually an xs but that was too tight and clingy for me. The small fits like a glove and is very flattering on. It seems to accentuate the good and camouflage the bad.
I was happy to see that the stripes all lined up on the seams, I'm pretty picky with pattern placement - and for the price I think it's pretty much expected.
The dress is very comfortable and so easy to wear. While I only styled it two ways for this review, I have a lot more ideas for it!
So what do you think?? Is the Maia Column Dress a keeper? I do love it but I'm just not sure I need two of these dresses in my life. But then again, I do love it (and I can use my birthday discount on it!). Please vote in my poll below....

OOTD: Dwarf Quince

Lately I've been obsessed with the Trade Market on Roxy's blog. I've found some cute Anthro clothes from past seasons that I missed out on. And the prices are much better than eBay so if you're looking for an oldie but goodie from Anthropologie, then be sure to check it out. This cardigan was one of my finds, I loved it when it came out but never got around to buying it.

Sale Picks!

Happy sale day at Anthropologie! I can't believe that two of the items on my wishlist hit sale today! Here's what I ended up with. I had to order them online since my local store didn't have either one of them, and now I can't wait for them to get here.

Did you pick anything up?? And did you see this lovely new arrival...
The print reminds me of the Fulmar Sweater Skirt from years ago. Now it just needs to hurry up and go on sale already. :)

OOTD: Microflora & Polka Dots

Thanks for all your votes on the Microflora Mary Janes! So, I decided to keep the multi colorway for three reasons. 1- I love the mix of the two patterns, 2- I love the bold and bright colors and 3- I thought they mixed better with items in my closet. 

When these shoes first arrived, I thought I was going to have to play down the rest of my outfit and keeps things simple. But when I put them next to this dress, a wonderful combo was born!! I think they play nice with the black and white pattern and the bright pink cardi pulls it all together...
