Hankerings

I popped into Anthro on Saturday to bid farewell to one of the darling managers I’ve come to know quite well over the years.  She’s gettin’ married (yay!) and transferring to another store.  Boo!  I shall miss her dearly….dropped a little gift off for her that I put together and then sought out some sweet thangs to try on to dull the pain of her leaving.  That’s how I roll. In so doing, I realized I hadn’t told you lately what I’m a-hankerin’ for.  I share the sentiment of many others that Anthro has missed the mark terribly in the last year.  That being said, I’ve still purchased many an item from them.  Anthro will always have some items I love, and no matter how many unflattering tops they pump out, I know I will find special pieces that stand the test of time.  The difference is that in previous years, my wishlist is usually THE ENTIRE CATALOG, and now my wishlist holds a few gems that I wait to hit sale.  This is new for me, since usually I find beauties there that I simply CANNOT WAIT for.  On Saturday, I found myself in the ‘CANNOT WAIT’ cabana, falling prey to Anthro’s accessorizing prowess.  When it comes to accessorizing, Anthro should just keep doin’ that thing they do….cause they always get ‘em so right. So here ya go.

Seduced by this little cincher:

Split Surfaces Belt

and the other version as well:

Split Surfaces Belt

and yet even one more belt.  I know, I know. I need another belt like I need a hole in my head.

the Belle Bow Belt

Then I spied this gorgeous piece of frosting for my neck:

Celadon Shaped Necklace

I haven’t taken any tags off of these yet, so I reserve the right to return one or more if I change my mind.  I don’t think that’s gonna happen though.

In addition, I tried on this navy nicety:

Wrap Around Blouse.

LOVE.  Absolutely LOVE it.  Had to go up a size from the usual, so keep that in mind.  Will have her at sale.

The other items I’m pining for?  No surprise, more AG STEVIES in purple and red that I DID mention a few posts back.  Getting nervous though…my store is completely sold out of the purple.

Then these little lilac lovers will FOR SURE be mine. Come sale or no sale….

Mixed Media Heels

And last, but certainly not least, this orangey/pink delight. She’s a bit see-through and the sleeves are quite puffy and might overwhelm those with a more petite frame, therefore I don’t think it’ll sell out.

Neopolitan Plaid Blouse

Non Anthro items I’ve purchased lately?  Placed an order for this and this from the Gap yesterday.  Here’s hoping they flatter the rump.

Did a lap around J.Crew and kinda loved the neon bow belt.  But wow, it’s really NEON.  And an email from Loft announcing their new arrivals has me ogling this lime breeze concoction. See, when you call NEON “lime Breeze” I’m more likely to buy it.  “Neon” just takes me back to those awkward preteen years full of braces, self-consciousness, and rolled-sleeve t’s.

And that’s all, folks.

Broke out one of my favorite Anthro purchases ever today: my Stormy Seas Necklace.  I only wish I had purchased it in every color while I had the chance!

 

Wearing: Pants-Anthropologie AG Stevie Cords, Top-ATL, Cardi-Anthropologie Shadow-Sleeve Cardigan, Necklace-Anthropologie Stormy Seas, Shoes-Anthropologie Anticipation Heels

So what’s on your radar at the moment?  Any NEON, I mean lime breeze or intensely pink pieces you’re coveting? Do tell.

xoxo Molly
