Every time I visit Anthropologie's website I mentally spend thousands of dollars. You see, in the UK we have Whistles as an equivalent, and while it's fabulous, it suffers from all the usual trappings of being on our shores; it's more expensive, the selection is smaller, the shops are few and far between outside of London and the website is about as useful as a chocolate teapot.

So for now I can but dream (and plan my trip to the USA). If I had the money, I'd wear a different printed sundress every day. Here are my favourites from Anthropologie, and to make us all feel better, some bargain alternatives from the UK!
