Monochromatic Wannabe

Another oldie but goodie Anthropologie dress. Another gorgeous item I kind of liked when I first saw but never bit the bullet because I didn't know what to wear with it. Another beauteous piece I now totally regret not getting after seeing the likes of Amy from kelinda.KELINDA rock it around the block here and here.

Good thing fashion likes to recycle and retailers like to take inspiration from Anthro so I can have another go. It's not the same thing but kills the craving ...

The original - Anthropologie Monochromatic Corset Dress (drool ...)

A pseudo-twin with a pop of red for the belt.

A more casual knit version.

A more open neckline and sundress-y feel.

Another knit version with cap sleeves. Also comes in red (called Circo Dress).

And yay, I've got 25 followers! I know that shouldn't be a big deal, but it is for me. Thank you all for sticking it out with me. Look out for a giveaway in the next few days - I've got some shopping to do first!


  1. I like that Calvin Klein one the best! And congratulations on 25 followers. Well deserved - your blog is excellent.

  2. I love my Monochromatic dress, but get scared to wear it because it's built like a corset and sometimes I can't breathe if I eat too much at a meal! I really love the first alternative with the red belt...Maybe I can sell mine off get get that one if it has an elasti-waist, hehe.

  3. Great picks, love that red belt with the dress!

  4. Thanks so much, Lady Cardi. I'm leaning towards the Jodi version because it's cheaper but I keep telling myself, do I need more stripes?

    Hi Jinah - I think I'm going to have to hunt the Jodi dress down at a Dillards and try it on. I didn't know the original Monochromatic dress actually has ribs like a corset - ooh I think I like to eat way too much to be restrained.

    Thanks for visiting, OneCraftyFox!

  5. Oh wow...I NEED that last dress. LOVE!

  6. Thanks for following, Kristin. The more I look at it, I actually like the Baja dress best myself.

  7. Thanks for the shoutout! I love my Monochromatic dress, though I need to figure out a way to wear it so that the lovely back lacing detail shows. And I hate to showing my arms (don't ask) so that's a challenge! I remember passing by that Calvin Klein dress and doing a double take. It really resembles the Anthro dress!
