Reviews: Bai Mu Dan Skirt

(front) The Bai Mu Dan Skirt ($118) takes its very clever name from a white tea that can only be harvested in the spring. Like the tea, the skirt has a golden shimmery hue to it along with pink accents around the waist. The cotton/viscose skirt reminded me a bit of curtains. Really nice curtains. I was easily able to…

Reviews: Fertile Loam Mini

The Fertile Loam Mini ($148) has an interesting name. The only other time I have ever heard the word loam was traveling in Ireland when a native was telling my then-guy and I about building his house out of “straw, sweat and loam.” I don’t think it’s an allusion to the skirt’s color either because I thought loam was kind…

Reviews: Oblique Pencil Skirt

The Oblique Pencil Skirt ($88) is a wine color that is so rich and intoxicating that I can spot it as soon as I walk into Anthropologie’s Soho store no matter where it is displayed. The website picture really doesn’t do the skirt justice. I own plenty of pencil skirts already though so this try-on was just for fun. Made…

Email: Skin Deep

In the winter my skin always gets dry, dry, dry. It’s no surprise then that Anthropologie’s latest email is all about skincare and bathing. Lotion, soap, etc. I have never used any of Anthro’s skin products and honestly I don’t plan on starting. I have smelled some of their items in-store and they smell pretty good but I have my…

Reviews: Sweet William Blouse

I will just come out and say it: I love the menswear as women’s wear trend. I think it can be very sexy and I love the way menswear fabrics are reinterpreted for feminine use. (I also get a kick out of the skirts on men trend. Maybe I’m weird.) The Sweet William Blouse ($128) takes a masculine broadcloth-style dress…

Reviews: With the Sun Blouse

You know how sometimes you see a shirt on the rack and know it’s not for you, but fall in love anyway? That’s how it was for me with the With the Sun Blouse ($98). It’s all wrong for me — the front has vertical pleats over the bust; it hits high-hip; it has short flutter sleeves. Still I tried…

Reviews: From-the-Ground-Up Top

From the company that brought us the Labryinthe Tee (now $30) and the Field Day Tee (now $30) comes the From-the-Ground-Up top ($68). I’m pretty hit and miss with Deletta tops. I find their fits to be somewhat inconsistent. But I love this top. It comes in dark grey (with purple undertones) and coral. Flutter sleeves always make me a…
