I tried very hard to snatch this picture before he walked around the corner while I was waiting for my TKB class last night. This guy strutted out in his baby blue, full body work out tights and walked with such pride! You can't see it from the picture, but the two girls sitting at the couch area were like this: 0_0 and D=.
Anyhoo...lets get our Friday Preview started:
I received these shoes earlier in the week and haven't had the chance to try them on until last night. Ladies...I love these! I almost want fall to come so I can put some tights along with these cuties. Online they're described as grey leather, but in person, they seem chocolate brown to me. The strap with the bow doesn't detach, rather it's elastic so you can slip your foot through. They are super light and very comfy. For sizing reference, I typically wear a 8.5 in US, so I bought the size 40 which fit fine. I know a couple of you have been wanting to get this, so I checked online just now and only the 37 and 38 remain. It's selling out quick!
I've seen so many ladies try this on and it looked so lovely on them, so I just had to see for myself. And yes, it is lovely! I won't go too much into detail, but just for sizing reference, I'm 5'5" and grabbed the 8, which fit perfectly. This dress, along with many dresses that came out lately from Anthro, is so pretty but I just won't know where to wear this. As much as I loved it, it's a pass for me.
Another dress for a special event. This would be a great holiday party or fall wedding dress. The lace top is beautiful and the organza pleated skirt falls ever so perfectly against my curvy frame. I grabbed the 8 but it ran slightly big with a little gaping...you can see from the top left picture near my arm. I would suggest sizing down on this if you have a smaller upper body since the skirt itself is flowy.
I thanked and embraced my curves when I tried this skirt on because I just loved it. The mossy green color really caught my eye when I walked around the store and the cute buttons that ran on the front side sealed the deal for me to take it into the dressing room. I grabbed an 8 because that's what I typically grab and if I need to size down, at least I don't need to go out to grab another size. It was a bit loose on the waist, but fitted perfectly through the thighs (this is always the case for me with Anthro skirts). I really think this will be a great addition to my fall wardrobe (which is truly minimal right now) and I will be stalking this item for a sale.
I grabbed the Slanted Plaid Blouse because I wore a dress that day and needed a top. The color's great, ruffles are beautiful but the sizing ran small. I grabbed a 6 and I really had to pull to button this. When untucked, it's a little long, but the material is thin so I'm not sure how I'd wear this on a normal basis.
I'm hoping for an Indian summer in Seattle since our official summer didn't really come until mid-July. So when I saw these cropped pants on sale, I decided to try them on for size. And oh my...they fit SOOO well! I'm always wary with cropped pants since they can make me look frumpy, but these didn't at all. I believe the color of the denim had a lot to do with it. They only had a 29 for me to try on, which hung a bit loose, so I ordered these in a 28 online. For those of you who are not straight figured like me, I definitely suggest you try these on.
That's it for this week girls! I'm getting a spray tan tonight to try to cover up my bachelorette party tanline. If this works, I'll do it also right before the wedding. Wish me luck!
