Rated 5 out of 5┬áby BummedOut A winner!
Let me start by saying I never buy from Anthro full price, I always wait till an item goes on sale and try to get the best price. *However*, I've been hearing amazing things about the Hi There! line, I had to try them out. For starters, the prints, the cut and length of these dresses were enough to sway me! Classic cuts and vintage inspired prints that AREN'T tacky or trying too hard? Sign me up!
I picked up both the Tethered Dress and Tiered Tulip Dress online and I have absolutely no regrets! These dresses are some of the best I've ever purchased from Anthro. I'm a little tall and broad shouldered/longer torso, so always worried about dresses coming up too short or fitting snug in the sleeve/back area. Not with these! AND they're comfortable!
SO flattering in every way! The cut is slimming and looks fantastic. Perfect for all seasons-can be dressed up or down-I'm so in love with my purchase. I will be picking up many more dresses from this line, keep them coming!!

I love the whimsical print and the flattering sleeve length. Depending on your height, the hem hits just above or below the knee, and, it runs true to size. The great details ensure that dress doesn't need much else besides heels or flat sandals.

This is a great dress for work. I'm 5'4" and it's just the right length #hits low knee#. The neckline is higher, but flattering in that it exmpahsizes the width of the shoulders and makes the waist look smaller. The colors are seasonless #navy, cream, and kelly green work well at any time of year#. The print has bows on it, but they are stylized and look mature enough. The only time of year you would perhaps not want to wear this dress is in the depths of winter. Though the fabric is polyester, it doesn't look or feel cheap.
I was concerned about the sleeth length. Sleeves that hit midway on your upper arm are usually unflattering. But my concerns were proved unwarranted. The width of the sleeves and the bit of pouf at the shoulders slims the arms. Only complaint: the frabic has no stretch and the shape of the arms and shoulders doesn't really let you lift you arm all the way. But I have very flexible arms, and this doesn't interfere with wearing the dress to work.
All in all, a great dress!
