|Great Escape Dress by Tabitha|
This dress is a good example of what irks me about Anthro lately: The top of this dress is...gasp...polyester rather than the silk that these type of dresses have always been crafted in, in seasons past. Plus, who remembers that up until about a year ago, when Anthro items got marked on sale, they would be at least 50% off, if not 60% off? So this dress, at full price of $168, would have been marked to probably $79.99. Those days are over apparently. So higher prices + cheaper fabrics? Not cool Anthro, not cool. Anyway, the design of the dress, along with the colors, make it a keeper for me. Despite the poly top, it seems like a well constructed dress and it's quite flattering. It does have a decorative zipper on the bodice that may bother some of you...for some reason I am fine with it.

Of course, I would have loved for both of these dresses to have been made 2 inches longer. Such is life for a tall girl.
What do you think of the dresses?
And now for fun, here's a picture of me and my dreamy Irish husband on St. Patty's Day:
