'I Go, and It Is Done; The [Sale] Invites Me'


I'm sure many of you know Anthropologie has mark-downs every Tuesday. Thankfully, nothing in my wishlist has gone on sale, so just as I was about to escape unscathed, I decided (the fool am I) to browse the new sale items. This little shirt (which I'm not sure why it escaped my wishlist in the first place) beckoned me - with its windswept hats, umbrellas and leaves; thundercloud shoulders dripping droplets of rain onto the background all borded by vintage chairs - to pick it up. It is the perfect juxtaposition to my leather pleated skirt! And so I called ahead to the Anthro store on 5th and held my size. Luckily I did because by the time I got down to the store at lunch time, these little silk beauties were all but sold out. More incentive to posses!

My Outfit Inspiration



LOVE LOVE LOVE

The BF brought this fabulous spread (Marie Claire - September 2010) to my attention and I immediately fell in love with it - from the toole peticoats, mesh layered tops and fishnet stockings, to the leather, grommets, studs and gold jewelry:
