As 2011 rolls to a close, I was thinking about some of the best purchases (and some of the worst!) I made this year. Too, I was inspired by Roxy's Year in Review post over at Effortless Anthropologie, where she posted some of the best Anthropologie items as well as some that she missed out on. I decided to post the "best of" each category for this post. Some were hard to choose... we'll see if you agree!
1: Best Dress
Clearly, the Mampos dress. I. LOVE. THIS. DRESS. I loved it from the moment it first went online, and did not feel guilty paying full price for it. I've worn it to weddings, parties, work, you name it. I think it's timeless style makes it a dress I will wear for years to come.
2: Best Skirt
This was hard to choose, and I am not sure if I made the best choice. I decided on the Sagebrush Skirt because it is more "classic" Anthropologie and is unique in both color and pattern. I haven't worn this skirt too often but plan to wear it more when spring rolls around!
3: Best Shoe
I know I mentioned it before, but the Inkwood Boots are one of the best shoe purchases I've made for some time. I've only owned these boots for a few weeks and already I've worn them a dozen times. They are cute and comfortable. Too, I can dress them up or down!
4: Best Coat
Lately, I've been getting a lot of wear out of Tracey Reese's Ruched Marigold Coat. However, the Pansy Corset Trench takes the title for 2011. Every time I wear this coat I receive a million compliments. Also, the coat is comfortable, bold, and classic. I know it will be a staple in my closet for years to come!
5: Best Accessory
So, this guy isn't from Anthropologie but I adore this feather headband. It was handmade, and I purchased it over the summer at Lou Lou Boutiques. It is definitely a show stopper and adds interest to any outfit I am wearing! (This dress was in the running for top dress of the year. I've only worn it 2 times, but it is definitely a favorite!)
How did I do? If you had my wardrobe, would you pick the same top 5 or something different? What are your favorite pieces from 2011?
