So my steadfast and whimsy skirt came this week. Oh Canada, why must shipping be so slow to me, I want my parcels faster (and cheaper hehe). Has the tissue wrapping from Anthropology changed for anyone else? I used to get a cream paper with red circles, and now it has grey lines and birds on it. I like the change.
First off, the review. The fabric is nice and silky feeling, but a matte finish. The plaid is a nice blend of navy, cream, yellow, and green. I can see it going well with quite a few colours. The length is very long which is a nice change. If I wear it higher up on my waist, the length is like in the catalog shot. If I wear it lower, it dips down in the back, but does not drag on the ground. I don't think that the tiers make me look any wider in the hips, so that is nice. Not many cons for the skirt for me, but I can see this being overwhelming on smaller frame.
Here is the catalog shot
Here is my take (I wore a mustard scarf with it as well)
Steadfast and Whimsy skirt (anthro), Faryl-Robin Bounder boots, Green leather jacket (The Bay years ago)
Ahem, excuse the "looking towards the light" pose... it is dark now, so I was getting crazy red-eye going on.
