A Med or Large in abercrombie kids fits me well, depending on the style and whether or not the material will shrink. Their kids sizing goes all the way up to XL / 16, which can probably accommodate women up to size S.
1. abercrombie kids Lizzy Dress, $59.50
First off, I like that the moose logo is masked by the floral print. I can also tell that this dress would be very flattering when on. The gathered sweetheart neckline is naturally flattering for smaller busts, the elastic belt emphasizes a slim waist, and the layered bottom is feminine and flirty. Is this what little girls wear these days? I'm very tempted by this dress, but the price is rather high for a children's dress.
2. abercrombie kids Bridget dress, $44.50
Love the sweetheart neckline again and the gathered empire waist. This dress would be so darling in the summer with a leather waist belt and some leather gladiator wedge sandals (if those aren't out by next year). I also like how most abercrombie camis and dresses come with adjustable length straps.

All the cute finds in the kids store led me to take a peek at the adult offerings. I'm even more confused now by this line. Some of the dresses look very different from their previous offerings, not at all like the preppy teenager brand I remembered. Take this mini dress for example:
3. A&F Payton Dress, $58
Everything is so cute, from the bustier top down to the waist bow sash and floral skirt. Material is 95% cotton, 5% spandex, which provides for a stretchy, close fit. I can typically wear an XS in A&F womens tops with no problem (not so much luck with their pants or jeans). This could be worn as a flirty minidress with flats or as a top over some skinny jeans, and no one would guess that it's from the moose-laden A&F!
4. A&F Trisha Dress, $78
This dress is really embodying the vintage theme. The top looks like an underwire bustier, which again can be super flattering with the right supporting undergarment. Love the huge sash waist, but not lovin the huge white moose (guess it ould be tucked in or turned inside out?). A cropped navy cardigan and strappy brown leather sandals would finish this look and prevent it from looking too over-the-top vintage.
5. A&F Mandy Dress,
Cute and flirty seems to be the theme of the day. Note how the logo is embossed on a little metal plate (bottom right corner of the skirt) instead of a moose : ) This dress reminds me of a Tracy Feith for Target dress from Spring 2009. My friend owned it in white and she got compliments on it left and right. Remember this?
