Last week I shared the awesome news that the A+ by Anthropologie line had launched. It's the first time Anthropologie has offered plus sizes, and they came out with a bang by offering over 120 pieces in the first drop! It was a shock (in the best way) for the plus size consumer who is accustomed to only having a very slim selection of styles available in plus.
I placed my order and wanted to update that I'm really impressed with how well they got sizing.

Garden Party Dress: The cut and style of this dress was not the best for my oval shape, but it is well made, true to size, and pretty colors. The print and placement of the stripes and flowers on my stomach made it look tight in my midsection, when in fact the fabric was very flowy and loose. If you're someone who can pull off a drop waist style, this would probably be great on you. For me, I'm going to pass.
Pixelated Tulle Skirt: This was beautiful in person, as I'd imagined. Fit very well. I wouldn't normally wear this with a black top, but it's all I had nearby as I was doing the quick try-on. I think a white
