Regurgitation of a Sort.

****THERE’S MORE NEW LOOT TO BE HAD IN THE ANTHROMOLLOGIES SHOP.  Pop on over and have a looksie!****

I have a dear friend who loves pancakes so so much that it’s actually a little embarrassing to eat in public with her.  Forget the short stack; this lady can put away a large stack without blinking. And makes ‘What About Bob’ noises as she eats them. She unabashedly loves them, and I think it’s freaking great. I feel happy knowing how much joy pancakes bring her. One time, after finishing a particularly excellent pancake meal, stuffed to the gills, she stated: “Oh my gosh, that was sooooo good! I feel so so sick,…but I think if I threw up right now, I’m pretty sure it would taste just as good coming up as it did going down.”

I admittedly do the exact same thing as she,….but with clothes, not pancakes. Let me be more specific though: I regurgitate color combinations, not exact outfits. Like this one from this post:

Wearing: Cardigan-Anthropologie Blooming Lattice, Skirt-Anthropologie Waverly A-Line, Top-Madewell, Belt-Anthropologie Split Surface Belt, Tights-J.crew, Shoes-Chie Mihara Nina

Green, pale pink, and orange,….regurgitated.

And you know what, it tasted just as good coming up, friends! ;) I trust you all believe in fashion regurgitation, yes? So good to know I’m in good company.

In other news, our house is listed (can I get a Hallelujah?!?). My house is cleaner and way more anal retentive than it’s ever been. It’s THE WORST!!…..I’ve never needed Anthro therapy more!!!
So let’s therapize, shall we? Looking ahead, you know, past the tribulation (like selling one’s house) is a worthy therapy tactic to me. So here goes.

Items I’m currently stalking are:

Blushed Tweed Moto Jacket. It's so....Badass Grandma, right? Audrey Hepburn and Dog the Bounty Hunter. I'm obsessed.

Blushed Tweed Moto Jacket. It’s so….Audrey Hepburn + Dog the Bounty Hunter. I’m obsessed.

And guess what….it’s the EXACT SAME JACKET DESIGN as my biker boyfriend here, which is why I love it so. You tried to be sneaky, Elevenses, but you can’t pull one over on Anthromollogies:

I’ve died and gone to throw-back heaven with this new Tracy Reese creation.

But seriously:

Dear Tracy,

why must you require a human kidney as payment for your flouncy numbers?

Sincerely,

Your fan (with only a kidney left to spare)

Though Corey Lynn Calter won’t leave me a full kidney lighter with her new flowery addition, the price tag still requires a ‘wait for it’ attitude:

Treat for the feet, anyone? I can’t decide which Wyatt twin I like more:

So there it is. I feel mentally lighter already now that that’s off my chest! Thanks, Anthro. Who knew you had a psych degree too?!?

P.S. COMING SOON- pics and DIY’s of the AHOY it’s a BOY baby shower I threw for a friend back in January, Anthro’s Breezy tops I can’t stop wearing, awesome San Antonio Visual display inspiration (cause the team here’s THE BOMB-DIGGITY), and so much more.

A Little Tulle Goes A Long Way.

Friends. Can I still call ya my friends? Hope so. Life has become a tad bit liken to Crazytown here. We are moving in 3 1/2 months, so we’re getting the house ready to sell while still keeping up with family, church, school, soccer, gymnastics, choir, clubs, piano lessons, teaching, visitors, etc. NUTSO Factory, I tell you!

My absence from posting has inspired a few of you to check in on me. Thank you for that.  I miss it. I want to get back to it, because getting dressed is still one of my greatest pleasures everyday. And going to Anthro is STILL like drinking milk and honey for me.  I feel my blood pressure drop the minute I walk through those doors and take a whiff of their Volcano candle goodness. Breathe in…….ahhhhhhhh!!! Some days I feel like I could seriously just free base off the stuff, it’s that addicting!

So now you know how I party, right? ha. No, if I wanna party, I bust out the Tulle, cause if “tulle” doesn’t say “party”, then I don’t know what does.

Wearing: Coat-Anthropologie, Skirt-Anthropologie, Sweater-J.Crew Charlie, Belt-Anthropologie, Tights and shoes-Anthropologie, headband-Anthropologie

Wearing: Coat-Anthropologie Harvested Honey Coat, Skirt-Anthropologie Aurelie Tulle Skirt, Sweater-J.Crew Charlie, Belt-Anthropologie, Tights and shoes-Anthropologie Lass and Laddie Oxfords, headband-Anthropologie

I polyvored a few sets with this Aurelie skirt for my sweet niece who was married in December. I bought her this same skirt for a wedding present, cause I’m basically the coolest Aunt in the world ;).  She asked me to polyvore a few options for their engagement photos, so I played around with different color combos. When I landed on mint and yellow as worthy companions for the skirt, well heck….even I was SOLD.

DSC_0417Mint, Yellow, and Tulle. Yep….we all partied.

The key to rocking a Tulle skirt? Balance the poof down south by wearing a sleek fitted top. Not too heavy on the jewelry either or all that hardware can be too busy with the volume of the skirt.

Cheers to tulle and reconnecting, friends!

What wasn’t under the tree was a little shopping I’d done when these babies when on sale for $6 a piece:

Calligrapher Canape Plates. I don't ever think I've "canaped", but by golly...these are going to be the coolest dessert plates EVER. Bought the entire freakin' alphabet. Couldn't resist.

Calligrapher Canape Plates. I don’t ever think I’ve “canaped”, but by golly…these are going to funtion as the coolest dessert plates EVER. Bought the entire freakin’ alphabet. Couldn’t resist.

I am not just an Anthro receiver…I giveth; whenever possible, I gift Anthro because their gifty-gifts are SO perfect.  In fact, I gifted several of these Callipgrapher plates, several earrings, a hat, an awesome cowl, an apron, and several of these mugs, (including one for moi and one for my 12 year old daughter who worships hot cocoa),

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 10.06.56 PMThey totally rock. Hot cocoa never tasted so good.

Hoping your day has been filled with goodness in all ways.  Merry Christmas and glad tidings of great joy to you, my friends and followers.  Looking forward to a new year of Anthro adventures with y’all.

xoxo Molly

P.S. in writing this post, looking for product names, I just discovered Anthro wished us a little Merry Christmas with markdowns, including my prugly pursuit.  Hmmm, wait til it gets marked down further or bite….
