A Kick in the Pants: The Anthrofied DIY Challenge Reminder to win a $25 Anthropologie Giftcard

Okay ladies.  What gives?  I have some fabulous Anthrofied DIY entries, but only 3!!!  Come on….you can do it!!  The deadline is this Saturday, but if I hear from enough of you that you just need a little bit more time, I could be swayed to push back the deadline a bit.  Let me know if you’ve got something in the works.  I’d love for this to be an Anthrofied feast, so the more…the merrier!

On my own DIY front, I’m almost done with my paper lantern chandelier project.  Just an hour or two left.  And I busted out more spray paint for Uncle Buck.  Thank you to all who weighed in over the Anthrofied Art Nook and my antlers.  Uncle Buck got a nice glossy white shower the other night, and I like the results much better.  I’m still considering yarn wrapping parts of the antlers, just to add a bit more funk.

Uncle Buck goes Glossy White. What'dya think? You likey?

I’ve worn my Akka Wedges 4 times in the last 2 weeks.  These babies are so comfortable, and morph either gray or muted green depending on what you wear.  I diggeth them mucho.

I’ve been waking up about 6 times a night to pee for over a month now.  It’s really getting ridiculous.  Now the bambino’s starting to wake me up for good at 4:30 a.m. and try as I may, there is no REM re-entry for this incubator.  I want to cry.  Instead, I will smile at the purchase I made with my $25 coupon last night.

and this with my other one.

Both of these gorgeous tops will join ranks and form harmonious friendships with many of my Anthro skirts and pants, I’m sure of it.

I also had a chance to pop in real quick at the mothership.  Couldn’t resist this charming vixon named Alery.  She was swapped in for a return of the Lepidoptera.  It was a decision of much mental wrestling…however I cannot deny how much more often I will be able to don this everyday frock as opposed to the party-begging colors and flirty shape of the Lepidoptera.  I can’t wait to throw this on post-partum and feel really cute, adding in colored belts for a bit of “party in the middle”.

I also couldn’t resist the Bojagi Pullover in red.  Love the sleeves and neckline on this baby.

I also tried on the mystery Girls from Savoy dress that the lovely Roxy reviewed here…. and subsequently fell madly in love…. must pick that one up next month with my birthday coupon.  A favor though?  Could someone close to 5’9″ – 5’10” try it on and tell me how short the hem is on them?  This baby bump is quite the roadblock in gauging if it will be tramp-does-texas or classy and sassy.  Thanks in advance.

  1. I tried on that the yellow Girls from Savoy Dress and I found the hem quite respectable (mid to lower thigh I think), even though I'm 5'9" — hope it helps you out a little Molly! I too, am completely smitten with it. Didn't think the shift-style would compliment all my bumps and curves, but it was like magic!

    • Thank you, Anjali! It really is magnificent, isn't it? Can't wait to snatch that one up.

      • Okay, I take it back, 'cause I went to the store and tried on a small today just to make sure of the sizing. Small = scandalous, upper thigh. Medium, a good couple of inches longer, far more demure.

        • I kinda thought that. So interesting that the medium has that much extra length. But the Medium will be way to big for my chest after occupancy is over. Looks like this will have to be a slip-layered-under dress. Did you notice if it has any hem that could be let out? I didn't look yesterday…will have to go back to investigate as well. It's too great to pass up without at least TRYING to make it work for the length I need. Thank you for the re-visit.
