Joking aside, three super things about my shopping ban is that (1) I've worked on my impulse control, (2) I've saved a crapload of money and (3) I`ve rediscovered favourite old-ish items in my cupboard. It's almost as fun as having sparkly new things! Almost. ;)
To celebrate this very auspicious occasion, I wanted to share with you my favourite Anthro outfit from February.
|Thanks to Ayesha for taking this anthro-at-work pic!|
|Why yes, those are foxes running across my legs!|
- Dress: Anthropologie Reed Shirtdress
- Belt: Linea Pelle
- Tights: Anthropologie Foxy tights
- Boots: Feet First
I love this navy blue cord dress because it's versatile, warm, highlights my small waist and covers my European child-bearing hips. I also like the swishy-ness of the full skirt and I feel very Mad Men in this number.
The tights on the other hand, look whimsically lovely but are constricting as all heck. They have NO give at all. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing them. I had to make like a kangaroo to get them on in the morning. The boyfriend thought I had lost it when he found me jumping around like a mad woman. I was determined to get those dang things on, one way or the other. And I did.
Do you have a favorite work outfit that makes you feel pretty and professional? Do tell.
And guess what lovelies? The March Anthro catalogue is now online for your viewing pleasure. Yay!
Happy 1st of March! Only 19 more days until spring. That's even more reason to celebrate.
p.s. Did you watch the Oscars? What was up with Anne Hathaway's seven dresses? Overall I didn't fancy any of her gowns much - with the exception of the cream-colored Givenchy Haute Couture gown.
These are the ladies that I think rocked the red carpet:
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy Haute Couture. Effortless, elegant and modern.
Mila Kunis in Elie Saab. Lovely lavender hue, lace and grosgrain ribbon detailing - what's not to like?
A glowing Natalie Portman in Rodarte. Deep saturated colour and a baby bump. Perfection.
Wouldn't it be fun to get all glammed & gussied up for a night (or two)? Sign me up! :)
Ciao for now! I'll be back soon with another post.
