I received one of the best surprises from the lovely Cat of Anthrosdottir yesterday. Her and I both own the Acting Out Skirt in the gray from last season. And when Anthro released the new color way, of course I was debating on whether I should also get it in another color since I loved the skirt so much. Then last night I received a comment from Cat saying that she found the skirt at the store she visited and it was marked down to $19.99!!! Also, that she decided to get a 6 for me as an early wedding present!!! I was so ecstatic when I read it that I just had to squeal in the car...alone...by myself. I seriously am very thankful for Cat's thoughtfulness and generosity. I think this blog community is filled with wonderful girls and I'm so blessed to be apart of it. THANK YOU again, Ms. Cat! I can't wait to wear it.
Throwing some additional love her way...it's Kim of Anthroholic's first year anniversary!!! I stumbled upon Kim's blog when I was searching online a few months ago for Anthro inspired outfits. That was how this whole blogging thing happened for me. From Kim's blog, I found Tien's, then Cats, then...well...you know who you are since I follow you. :) Kim inspires me in so many ways, I literally have a folder at home on my computer titled "Outfit Ideas" and most of them are filled with Kim's outfits. I love her sense of style and without ever meeting, she seems like such a great person! To celebrate, she's decided to throw a virtual party. Of course, I had to join! For this occasion, I've decided to bust out my Perilla dress.
Sorry for the lighting in these as we haven't had the chance to get blinds yet, so the window in the bedroom behind me lets in some morning sun. But hey, at least it's a different scenery from my usual work restroom right? :) I love how this dress fits and how it feels. It's so comfortable that I can lounge in this dress at home. I'm so glad I made this purchase! Now...lets get this virtual party started!
Dress - Perilla Dress (Anthropologie)
Cardigan - J. Crew
Shoes - Nordstrom Salon Shoes
Oh...one more thing before I go. A couple of days ago, I posted and asked for your advice on leather/faux leather jackets here. I went back to the Nordies sale this week and got this!
The brown/bordeaux color was cute but they only had a medium in this. I tried it on regardless but felt that I liked a snugger fit. Instead, I decided to buy the navy-ish color which will match with a lot of items I have in my closet for work.
Here's me trying it on for Chris. What do you girls think? I think it matches with the red and white striped tee quite well. I love the ruffles as it makes the leather look more feminine.
Thanks for stopping by girlies! Have a wonderful hump day.
