Pretty shiny things

Like most women, I have my nicer jewelry and I have costume jewelry. I try not to spend more than $10 on costume jewelry (thank you, H&M, American Eagle and New York & Company!). Sometimes though the mid-market gets me. Anthropologie has unveiled a bunch of appealing items in the past month. The one thing about Anthropologie jewelry is that…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Trend: Shoes that are also boots

Here’s a trend I admit I don’t get: boots that have shoes as their bases. Case in point: Anthropologie’s Tagalong Boots (now $200). I just can’t wrap my head around this trend. And Anthro is far from the only store carrying these. Behold the Puma Ferro Boots ($375) which make me disappointed that the name “Ugg” was already taken. I…

Gorgeous! Tivoli Scoopneck & Meadow Squill Top

Oh Anthropologie, you’ve done it again! Everytime I swear off buying clothes for a while you seem to come out with your best lines. Consider this my love letter: I’m drooling over too many pieces from your Spring line to count. And while short sleeves are a little while away I may have to cheat for two pieces: the Tivoli…

Vintage touch

With clothing trends playing heavily off the style of the 1930s and 40s this winter it’s no wonder that jewelry has followed suit. It’s been interesting to see Anthropologie’s take on the trends through their whimsical pieces. In particular I’ve noticed their necklaces have been taking on more stature lately. Larger pieces with a more delicate touch than previous years…

Gorgeous! One Hundred Summits Dress

One Hundred Summits Dress, $188Outfit option 1 | Outfit option 2 The One Hundred Summits Dress did not catch my eye in the catalog. In real life though I found it very attractive. I was so drawn to it that I started to think of excuses to wear it — dancing, a party, weekend-ing. Honestly I would wear this dress…

A little baggage

What is the quickest way to tell the difference between a city mouse and a country mouse? Look at the size of their bag. While my weekends in Connecticut were spent with an over-the-shoulder satchel these days my city self travels with a huge hobo that could be probably be licensed as a deadly weapon in several states. But if…

Full Skirt Alchemist

Full Skirt option 1 by roxyturtle The secret to wearing a full skirt is a more tailored top. This fall and winter has seen some loosening of this rule as the trend is for clothing to float away from the body. However, I find that the full skirt still looks best with some structure from the top down. Flattering to…
