I wore this Anthropologie Dress to a retirement party last night.  It's not often that I get to a)shop at Anthropologie (I had a very generous gift card ; )  or b) dress up. This dress stopped me in my tracks when I entered the store last week, and even though I tried several others on, I knew I'd go home with this beauty. It had my name written all over it.

As soon as I put it on I couldn't help but see the patterns in my taste.

Wouldn't this look great with my new curtains?

If I didn't love it so much as a dress, I'd turn it into a pillow.  Guess I'll be hunting for some new fabric.

Any suggestions?

  1. new reader here...and I love that dress! I was at Antho last weekend and didn't see it. It's not often that I dress up either so I love it when I do! Great dress find.

  2. That dress is amazing!!! I love the unique styles and patterns that Anthro has, just wish the price tags were a little lower.

    And your new curtains are stunning, too.

  3. Thank you for reading Holly and thanks for the compliment. Your the first reader I've never met, so I'm thrilled to have you! I look forward to visiting your blog.

    Thank you too, Kathleen. I am totally with you. I love Anthropologie's styles, but without my gift card it would never have been an option.

    And thanks for the curtain love ; )

  4. that is one gorgeous dress, Erin. i agree the pattern is great.

    thanks so much for your thoughtful comments and for visiting my blog too. i hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend.

  5. Thanks so much, Brandi. You are very welcome. I love finding new blogs that inspire me.

    Happy Fourth!

  6. Hi Erin, I'm a new follower and friend from BlogFrog. I love that dress and how it compliments your curtains :) Your attraction to patterns remind me of a show I watch on HGTV called "Sarah's Summer House". Have you seen it? She uses tons of patterns in one room and makes it look so put together. Worth a watch if you find the time.

    Hope that you had a good time that evening :)

  7. LOL, sorry I had to post again. I saw the link to Sarah Richardson design (to the right of my comment box in "Links I Love" just as I clicked the post comment button. DUH!!!

  8. That's too funny, Lea.I LOVE Sarah Richardson. I really wish I could live in either her cottage or the farmhouse reno they did. She makes it look so seamless.

    Thanks for following and have a wonderful Fourth!

    (I had a great time at the party, too, thanks ; )

  9. HI Erin-

    I think it is fun to see your style in the way you have shown us here. You know what you like - that is a good thing. The dress would be a great home dec fabric - pillows would look fabulous.

    My best- Diane
