I received a birthday discount card from Anthro that says I can get 15% off my total store purchase any day this month. Wondering if there is anything worth getting? I browsed the website and these pieces looked potentially interesting...any of these you think might work on me? Some of them are online only though so I'm not sure if those would count since I need to present the card in-store (though I think they'd probably be able to place the order for me). I wouldn't be able to try on the online only styles until I got them, but I'm willing to order multiple styles and/or sizes and return the ones that don't work if you like any of these for me. If you don't like any of these, anything else you might suggest for me instead? Thanks for your help!
1. Crystallized Chrysanthemum blouse
One size fits all so it might be a bit big, and sheer so I'd have to wear a tank underneath. But I love the pattern and I really love flowy tunics right now.
2. Ruched Stripes Column Dress (online only)
I decided to return the French Connection horizontal black and white stripe dress, but this one looks like a nice alternative--a little more sophisticated looking and maybe more slimming since the stripes are diagonal. Still a bit risky for apples though. And not sure if this is too body-con to wear to work? (I do wear the orange B44 dress to work BTW).
3-4. Ikat Frequencies Shirtdress in Blue (3) or Purple (4) (online only)
I kind of prefer the turquoise and white version but I'm not sure if that would be too similar to my turquoise and white Michael Kors dress, so I could get the purple and green one instead. I am not sure if it's long enough to wear bare-legged to work (if the model is tall it might hit me closer to the knee), or else I could wear as a long tunic with skinny pants underneath.
5. Dotted Peplum Buttondown (online only)
I've been looking for a navy and white polka dot blouse for a while--not sure if this one might be a good option?
6. Bubbled Bands Shirtdress
This looks kind of interesting but not so sure it would work on me. I'm also not sure about the ruffle bib on the front.
7-9. Given Then Gathered Column Dress in Turquoise (7), Bright Red (looks more like orange to me) (8) or stripes (9)
These look like they'd be a bit more flattering to my tummy and modest enough to wear to work. The striped one looks like a more sedate version of the dress in #2, but maybe not as exciting.
10. Nanette Asymmetric Dress
So pretty with the beading and high-low hem and red-orange color. Not sure if the boatneck top and waist placement would work on me or not.
11. Glimmered Ankita Dress
This dress looks SO pretty--I love the colors and unique pattern--this style really appeals to the boho luxe side of me. Although some of the reviewers were complaining that the sequins were falling off. And not sure if the shape of the dress is too wide for me.
12. Hummingbird Silk Midi Dress
Hummingbirds! I LOVE animal prints with actual animals on them.
13. Santee Maxi Dress
I've always wanted a striking maxi dress. This dress looks gorgeous but may be too long for me and might have to be tailored if the reviews are correct.
