WIW: Anthro Winter Tree shirtdress

Here is the Anthro Winter Tree shirtdress that I posted pics of before...I wore it for real for the first time (wore it to work today). I kept the size 6 because even though the 4 fit better up top, it was too short. I swapped out the self-tie that came with it for my Linea Pelle belt, because I didn't want it to look like I was wearing a silk nightrobe, if you know what I mean! I think it cinches the waist in better too. Do you still think the dress looks like needs to be taken in? Is it too short in the back? The dress is unlined and I just realized it's clinging to my butt a little so I think I may need to buy a slip. I wore it with nude heels, and my favorite V necklace & bronze cuff. I really like this dress because most of my maternity clothes were from Japanese Weekend, and I buy nearly all my kids' clothes at Tea Collection, and this dress reminds me of those brands (modern Asian-inspired prints). Tea Collection now has a women's line, but I tried a lot of their stuff and had to return the whole order...for some reason it didn't look good on me. So I was happy to find this Anthro dress!

    You look lovely in this dress....love the pattern and the style. And the belt works nicely to cinch the waist. I do think you would benefit by taking it in just a little. Do you have a good tailor/seamstress? It would be an easy fix. :-)

    I really like this dress on you! Is it supposed to be slightly flared? I think it looks pretty darn good as it is. I love the print, the colors, and it does fit your vibe I think (the one that's emerging, anyway)! The belt really sets it off.

    What a beautiful dress, such gorgeous colours and pattern. I think it looks really good with the brown belt too. I'll leave the "take in or not" question to the experts.

    I love the print! I think it looks good on you and I don't think the back is too short at all. If you wanted, you could have it taken in a bit, but it works fine with the belt.

    Natalie, the fit is terrible, shall I give you my address to send it to me?!

    Glad to see you kept the dress. Looks great to me.

    Doesn't look too short in the back to me. If you want the dress to fit more snugly without a belt I say get it taken in; currently it's a bit slouchy, which is fine, but since you're finding you like a bit of bombshell I think you should have it taken in personally :)

    I would also like to take it in a little! And maybe wear it with gold shoes ( I'm matchy-match ylike that!)
    Apart from that, the dress is adorable!
