***BE SURE TO STOP BY SHOP ANTHROMOLLOGIES AS I’VE ADDED LOTS OF NEW GOODIES TO BE PURCHASED, AND WILL BE ADDING MORE THIS WEEK!! Contact me at email@example.com if interested.
To shift or not to shift? That is the question.
Shift dresses in general are a tough fit on me. My man shoulders and He-Man ribcage require a bigger size up top than I need for my bottom, so I’m left with a bit of sag down-under, like it looks as if I need a lil’ more junk in my trunk to fill it out.
So what to do? I can’t go walking around looking like a deflated hot air balloon, right? Not cool.
Enter: The Belt.
I belt the heck out of those shift dresses and Voila! Saggy bottom solved.

Speaking of Trunks….remember this post here? About Bonjour Biqui?
Well, clothe me happy….the one and only visionary Blanquita, creator of Bonjour Biqui, is having a trunk show TOMORROW NIGHT here in San Antonio. I am lucky enough to be attending and wearing one of her creations! I can’t wait!! It’s downtown in a vintage hangout called the Liberty Bar, with smooth LIVE jazz (played by her own father’s group!!), tastey beverages, and excellent clothing to be had. Come join us!
I dropped by Anthro this morn to pick up the Trunk Show dress for tomorrow night, and had a moment in the dressing room with the following crushes:
Pearled Posey Cardigan- Holy cow, it was like saying goodbye to Ryan Gosling leaving this one behind. SO. HARD. Lovely fit. Took a size Medium. FYI: It hit at a cropped length on me, not nearly as long as it appears on the model. She’s obvi wearing two sizes too big.
Accordion Midi Dress- Infatuated. Period. Problem is that I’d want to line it with a better slip option. It’s basically a ribbed knit spaghetti strap slip underneath. I wish they would have taken the lining all the way to the hem. It’s a gorgeous gray/blue color. Took a size medium, and had to wiggle the elastic band over the lady lumps. HIGHEST of HIGHS on my wishlist.
Pan-Pearled Cardigan-I would LAY DOWN AND DIE for this color. LOVE!! Took a size Medium. Fit is wonderful. SUPER high on my wishlist.
Colorpom Tank – One of my absolute FAVORITE things I’ve had on my bod lately. I couldn’t resist this one…think Gollum: my precious!! I had to have it. The fit is fantastic. I took a size Medium. Such a fun top!
Aside from the Colorpom Tank, I had to leave the others behind because I may have placed a phone order yesterday that involved the purchase of this:
Painted Carousel Shell -back ordered til 3/14.
More reviews to come this week. Can’t wait to hear whether or not any of you have gone all Gollum on any Anthro pieces lately. Care to tell which ones?
