Anthropologie Spring Fashion Show

I tried to get shots of everything, but my seat and my camera conspired against me. Still, I got a lot of them! About 25 outfits, I think. There’s too much to ID, but a few of them will show up in my next dressing room post. (Also, yes, quality issues. Sorry. 😦 )

Before we get started, this is what I ended up wearing:


anthropologie Espaliared Tunic, Gap lace camisole, Coldwater Creek crochet cardigan, Old Navy rockstar jeans, Liz Claibourne boots, XO pendant choker, tulip from anthropologie!

And onto the show!

I’ve been so uninspired lately. I didn’t even bother taking an outfit picture yesterday – I wore the red jeans/peach sweater combo again, but with the tall boots. And then today, I was totally unimpressed with what I planned to wear, and I’m not thrilled with what I ended up with, either. I grouched the entire walk to work, at which point I stumbled on what I wish I had worn instead. RATS.

So, I’m seeing if some Polyvore playing helps me get new ideas. This is what I wish I was wearing today. (Ignore that the shirt pic appears to be transparent.)

Outfit Plans

My friend and I are going to see Darren Criss at an outdoor concert this weekend, and I’m trying to figure out something cute and comfortable to wear. Lots of walking (it’s a whole huge outdoor market), lots of outdoor.

My plan was my new Odetta culottes with a tank top, but they are so relaxed and comfortable, I rather looked like I was wearing pajamas. So, attempts 2 and 3. But maybe they just are weekend fun shorts and not going out shorts? Hmm.

I thought I might try to build a fun outfit around my new shoes, but after wearing them for a day at work, I am not interested in walking all around Chicago in them. *g*

Should I 86 the shorts and pick something else? (Then when the hell CAN I wear these? LOL) Like this?

As always, your opinions are valued.


Woe, for I am sick. So instead of an actual outfit post, I have a potential outfit post.

I have been seeing more and more of the socks with sandals trend. I am not opposed to it, I think it can make a cute colorful bootie like statement without the added expense of another shoe, but I am not sure I can pull it off.

Here’s attempt #1:

Hmm. Too little girl? Wrong color socks? (I don’t have many trouser sock options, sadly, and even fewer potential shoes) Wrong skirt? Not a good look for my legs? None of my pink tops are the same shade of pink as the socks, but maybe that shouldn’t be a limiter.

Attempt #2 was definitely wrong, with a pink/yellow/blue plaid skirt. I looked like I was 10 years old, wearing a 1960s cupcake dress.

Should I keep working on it?
