I Drank the Polka Dot Juice

Nay.  GUZZLED it. That’s what I did.

On one of my recent Anthro fly-bys, the fabulous personal shopper at our San Antonio location pointed out to me that the AG Stevie Ankle jeans were now offered in….gray, with tiny white polka dots.  Shut the front door….polka dot Stevies?!?  She held them up for me to see….and I forget everything else that happened after that.

I kid.

I tried the suckers on fast as lightning and promptly began calculating how I could make these mine.  Cause polka dot pants wait for no one.  And they shouldn’t.

I put them on hold so I could think clearly, away from the intoxicating candles and crooning Indie singers.  I put them on hold again.  It was no use….I couldn’t get them out of my mind.  So I went back and committed.  And boy, am I glad I did.

Sorry for the scary 'What big teeth you have' smile I've got going on in this photo. My little Bankster Boy was cracking me up, sitting in his Bumbo seat, grinning away while we took these photos.

They are SO comfy. Hope y’all are polka dot fans, cause you’ll be seeing quite a bit of these lovers.

I popped back in Anthro today to order the Palma Dress that hit sale last week. I haven’t had time to go in all week, so the one I had placed on hold last Tuesday sold. They only had one in my size.  Now my store is down to one unit of the dress, a size 10 if you’re lookin’.   And online is sold out of them.  I panicked.  Good thing I ran in because I was told tomorrow starts Anthropologie’s Employee appreciation period, where they get quite a significant savings off of sale items.  Translation: that Palma Dress will be GONE, baby GONE after the employees have a go at her.  So if you want it, or any other sale item you’ve been after and the stock seems to be low….I’d speed dial customer service and make it happen.  Just my two-cents.

Good news to my tiered ruffle-slip DIY inquirers….it will post on Thursday, so check back for that post!  Thank you mucho for your patience.

Other exciting stuff? Besides the 2 baby shower posts (with tons of DIY’s), more Flex your Style Series posts, the paper fan wall DIY Tutorial (I did it for the green/gray Wedding reception), and Yarn ball/paper fan DIY Chandelier to show you, I have another sweet DIY piece to show you.  TOTALLY 100% inspired by Anthro.  Here’s a sneak peek.

Can’t wait to show it to you, the whole shabang!
