First off the construction of the dress is fantastic. I love the sweetheart neckline, and the fabric doesn't seem flimsy nor the embroidery seem prone to unraveling. It is a halter dress, which I usually avoid but thanks to my new fantastic strapless bra (seriously, this thing works miracles), I'm comfortable and confident wearing this halter dress. And don't forget the pockets! Gotta have pockets...
Sizing wise I took a 4, which is my "usual" anthropologie dress size. It's always a crapshoot when I order online, but after working retail and just shopping at anthropologie regularly I have become better at guessing which size I would need (reviews on the site are also helpful).
Here is a closer look at the dress. The buttons go all the way down the dress and they are working buttons. This is in addition to the side zip that I mentioned earlier, which is nice. Sometimes dresses with side zips (that don't go all the way up) can be a pain to put on over your head. In the second photo you can see the snaps that were incorporated to make sure the dress doesn't pull in the wrong spots.
How cute are the embroidered roosters? They are adorable and don't give me the heebie-jeebies (like real roosters do).
I decided that this orange pair of MICHAEL Michael Kors sandals (thanks Sophia!) would complement the kelly green of the dress. I may be wrong, but I think this shoe may be a true sample, since the style name that was written on the bottom doesn't really match up to the shoe that goes by the name currently. You can see similar pairs here and here. In this photo I am also wearing a Forever 21 Jersey Knit Bow Headband. No OOTD post today because it was extremely unremarkable (black tunic, black leggings, black flats). But I'll be back tomorrow with one!
