Hello, ladies, I hope you've all been enjoying a wonderful holiday season so far! I'm just trying to dig out of the 20 inches of snow that just got dumped on NYC over the past 24 hours!:(((( Some of you may think it looks so pretty, but I really do not enjoy it AT ALL! I think I seriously need to consider relocating to a different part of the country. Give me warm, sunny beaches any day over having to schlep around in this nonsense!
I received some gift cards to my favorite store, Anthropologie, so I've spent a little time on their website today, just scoping out new possibilities for my closet.:) I have to tell you, it appears that their buyers have some serious seasonal confusion going on! Today, the website unveiled a few new offerings, but these items sure don't seem like winter wardrobe staples to me! Pretty pastel shades, gauzy silk fabrics, and whimsical floral patterns? Not to mention sleeveless or barely there sleeves. Hmmmm....I couldn't wear any of these items until June, even if I liked them! Take a look to see what I mean.
Powdered Pigment Dress from Plenty by Tracy Reese ($228)
Holy Open Back! Can't picture breaking this out to wear in the 2 feet of snow we currently have on the East Coast.
Martagon Sketch Halter Dress (Label not listed - $158)
Work-In-Progress Dress by Cantao ($168)
Magnified Corolla Dress by Coquille ($168)
Wow, so not a lot of options for me over at Anthro right now! That's a pretty rare statement. However, there is one dress that I absolutely ADORE and hope to bring home with me tomorrow. It's the Soft-Structured Dress by Weston Wear. This little beauty has looked incredible on several bloggers and I absolutely must own it! Featuring a rich navy shade and an eye-catching floral print, this dress is just so darn pretty and seems to flatter one's curves in all the right places.
Being that I sort of have that J.Lo/Kim Kardashian thing going on with my behind, I want to try on both the XS and the S to see just how clingy the material is. After all, it's a thin jersey fabric and I do want to be able to wear this to work. At $148, I know that it's pretty expensive for what it is, just a simple jersey dress, but it's getting such fantastic reviews, so I feel like I should probably go for it now, especially with my gift card. After all, it may sell out before it ever makes it to the sale rack!
Well, I'm off to shovel more snow. Have a fantastic afternoon and I'll be back soon to show you my post-Christmas purchases!
