Anthropology is one of those stores for me that I love to visit rather than shop online. From the moment you step into the store, it just smells so nice and there's so many pretty things to look at. I recently went to the store and tried this dress and absolutely loved it. The pattern mixing, the fabric and it had pockets! It was everything I wanted except the price point.
I posted the dress on Instagram (if you want to follow me here) and wanted some feedback if I should purchase this dress. I debated if I should I should stalk the dress and wait for it to go on clearance. One of my IG friends suggest that I try and recreate it.
I knew I already had a dress that's similar in print but did not own a stripe crop top. I have been wanting one to wear with layers so I thought why not. So here's my recreation of the dress at a fraction of the price. This solution was perfect because now I can wear this stripe top with other items in my closet too.

Here's a throw back to how I wore this dress back in May 2014 (original post here)
