My parents gave me a gift card to Anthropologie as part of my Christmas gift, and since I initially thought I was going to buy my wedding dress through its sister company, BHLDN, I’d been holding onto it for that purpose. But things changed–I’m buying the dress through a local shop, instead–and the money began burning a hole in my pocket.
Enter: This dress (which is currently on sale!). I bought it at Anthropologie’s new Sarasota outpost the other day, and I’m in love with it. The heart pattern is more whimsical than twee (though let’s be real, I’m never one to shy away from a pattern a 12-year-old might like), and it fits like a dream. I’ve been wearing it with black opaque tights and black heeled booties; it works for both work and social events. And it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, but I’ll be wearing it year-round.
