Outfit of the Week - The Anthro Effect

Anthropologie. Gorgeous clothing, fabulous decor. All-around awesomeness. I always go out of my way to visit whenever I'm near one, but lately it's had this awful effect on me. I walk around slowly, touching all the beautiful things, taking it all in. Then all of a sudden, I look at the price tag on a beautiful lace tank top and I start hyperventilating - $89.50 for a tank top?! Then I remember - Oh yeah, I can't afford anything in this store. And I start running towards the door, knocking over displays, yelling "Get me out! Get me out!" Oooor something like that.

So what happens when I get a gift card to somewhere like Anthro? Well, let me tell you. I hold onto it for six months (literally) because I'm convinced I have to use the money to buy the perfect thing. Finally, when they are having their 25% off sale items deal, I go crazy and buy this dress, along with two candles and some earrings.

But hey, I love the dress so it works out. I wore this to a friend's wedding last weekend. I'm loving the stripes, the pockets and the pop of green on the bottom. My point has come full-circle: Anthro has gorgeous things.




Shoes: Urban Outfitters (worn in my wedding!)
Bracelet: F21

  3. I know exactly what you mean at Antrho. I think I've only ever purchased something from there 2x. You made a great choice though; you look really cute!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
