anthropologie: favourites of yesteryear

I visited Anthropologie last weekend, and although I tried a few things on (reviews to come), nothing really got my style senses tingling. I'm hoping the blah releases of the last few months will be replaced by a bevy of beauties, in the spring. A girl can only hope.

Until that time, I'm going to continue to enjoy my Anthro purchases of yesteryear. Every single one of these items makes me feel pretty, feminine, chic and classy. And that's how you should feel when you're getting ready to take on the day.

Let's start this trip down memory lane with a marigold frock from Girls from Savoy. I wore this stunner to my husband's Christmas party, and my next step will be to incorporate it into my work wardrobe. I love how vintage, classic, and timeless this dress feels.

Did you enjoy this look back at some of our most cherished Anthro items? Sometimes it's good to be reminded of what you already have in order to keep the consumer monsters at bay. Right, ladies? (;

Happy Friday, y'all. I hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend.  I'm playing in my first soccer game of 2012. Wish me luck!


p.s. I'll be back in a few days with a few Anthro reviews and an exciting announcement for Edmonton's style fiends. Come on back now, y'hear?


  1. Great choices, Dajana! I saw a few in there that are at the top of my list too:)

    1. Thanks, Kristin! You have a few items that are on my list, too. Like the Cloaked in Roses jacket, among others.

      p.s. Love your splurge-worthy choices from the Chie Mihara Spring/Summer 2012 collection!

  2. Thanks for including me in your post D! These dresses are all kinds of lovely :-) I'm thinking you could play your soccer game wearing the Whirligig dress - it looks so comfortable. You'd be fashionable and fierce on the field...But maybe pair it with some shin pads (you know, just in case) :-)


    1. Awww, you're welcome homefry. I love your guest appearances.

      As for wearing the Whirligig to soccer, no way! The team we played against was beyond aggressive. They would have ripped the dress to shreds and used the remnants to wipe the nasty sweat off their faces. Ha! (;

  3. I love all these dresses - you look so pretty in them!

  4. I love, love the tangerine numbers and the manor dress is so fun! All look great on you my dear. :D


    1. Grazie, P! Wearing that tangerine shade makes me happy. p.s. Were you surprised to see yourself in this post? (:

    1. Thanks, Court! The next time you feel the urge to go Anthro-shopping, I'm your girl.

  6. You look so pretty in all the dresses! My favorite looks on you are the Fluted Ponte Dress and Take Action Dress!

    1. Hi Sayaka! Thanks for the sweet compliment and for stopping by. It's always nice to meet other Anthro-lovin' ladies. (:

  7. I love this post, Dajana. These items area all beautiful and I even have a few in my own closet. You wear dresses so well! I haven't found much at Anthropologie in a while but I got a great jacket today with my birthday discount!

    1. Thanks, C! It doesn't surprise me that you have a few of these dresses in your repertoire. Stylish minds think alike.

  8. Dajana...I just found your blog from Effortless Anthropologie. I really like this post and all of your picks. I have a couple of these dresses in my wardrobe as well and I really need to pull them out again.

    1. Thanks Natasha! I've been less than inspired by Anthro's offerings as of late so I'm going to re-love my oldies but goodies. Thanks for popping by for a visit. I like having fashionable visitors from Florida. (:

  9. I am a tunic person myself...You rock them !!

    Gr8 blog :)....Wanna follow each other with GFC, Twitter and Facebook ?


    1. Hi Shalini! Thanks so much for the compliment. I checked out your lovely blog and your Spring 2012 post. I’ll be adding a few of those categories to my spring wardrobe – especially the coloured denim, tangerine and stripes. You’re SO lucky the weather is beautiful in Bangalore. Spring doesn’t arrive in my city until late March/early April so, until then, I’ll be rocking my winter boots, gloves and coats.

      Thanks again for popping by! Ciao for now.

  10. You are gorgeous! I love all these outfits!! You have a knack of completely bringing them alive.

    I've just come over from Behind The Dressing Room Door, where we were both featured (yay!). I'm loving having a snoop round your blog - *big crush*. I've signed up to follow you!

    I'm doing a 30 for 30: Maternity Fashion series, where I have to pick 30 items to wear as 30 different outfits over 30 days...and I'm five months pregnant. Crazy..but I love it!


    1. Awww, thanks Sarah! You are a sweetie-pie and I’m so glad you stopped by.

      I will definitely be following you and your unique twist on the 30 for 30. Quite a few of my girlfriends have had babies recently and I loved seeing how they styled their outfits à la maternity. Now, I’ll get to see your stylish outfits, too. Yay!

      Thanks again for visiting, pretty lady!

      p.s. Congratulations on your pregnancy! You look smashing. (:

  11. wowza, I think the clothes at Anthro were made for you!!! You look fantastic in every single thing and so does your friend:)

    1. You're a sweetie, Carol. Thank you for the compliment! (:

      Have you been sucked into the Anthro vortex, yet?

  12. ohmygracious! I am beyonddddd jealous of your Anthro wardrobe--I especially love the first mustard dress, the shirtdress, and the polka dotted dress. You look gorgeous in all the photos though! You definitely know how to shop for your body...kudos, pretty lady! so happy to have found your blog! xoxo {av}
