How Novel.

First off, thank you all who weighed in about the Roe Habitat Blouse. I am elated to have one on it’s way to me via a best offer on Ebay. You’ll be seeing deer at play soon, ladies. Very soon.

While I’m at it, I’m gonna get mushy.  Thank you to all of you who take the time to comment on here.  That’s why I started this blog in the first place, to have a spot where I could talk and ramble at length with other Anthropologie die-hards who “get it”. So when I’m talkin’ to myself, it feels a bit lonely. I know there are a bajillion blogs out there to comment on, so I do truly value the time you take reading the frou-frou that spills out of my head and the comments you leave. I don’t always have the time to reply to each comment, but I read each and every one…and try my best.  So, thank You!

So, about the 3 new pretties I bought…. Some of you know me quite well. Good guesses, you little fortune tellers.

One of them though, none of you guessed. If I were the betting kind, I wouldn’t have bet I’d buy them either.

Wearing: Pants-Anthropologie Dime Novel Wide Legs, Cami-Anthropologie Eloise, Top-Anthropologie Dotty Jacquard Buttondown, Shoes- Target Wakana Wedges, Earrings-Anthropologie Triphasic Earrings

In truth, I bought both of these items before the catalog shots came out of them being paired together. Hey, when it’s good, it’s good…right? Why mess?

About the pants….Novel indeed!  They are like BUTTAH! So soft. Flare on them is ridic. So ridic it’s rad. I friggin’ love them. The top….light as air. You can roll the sleeves to hide the bit of print on the inside band of the wrists, or you can show it. I’m all bothered by the coral color now…thinking I need it too!

The other item I purchased? I was seduced by Pam Hiran again!

Sparked Agate Bib Necklace

I have already tried it 10 ways in my closet and ladies…we have a winner. This is one of those pieces I feel I’d log serious hours hunting down on Ebay a year from now if I let it get away. Looks particularly great with this and this.

I played around a little bit with the Dime Novels. Would love to wear them all three of these ways as well.

Dime Novel Set 2

Dime Novels Set 3

Have you tried the Dime Novels on? Feeling as inspired by them as I am?

I’ve gotta say…..I’m feeling gushy about them in a “they are my muse” sort of way.

Pardon my own puddle of drool on the Anthro catwalk, but I can’t help myself. I am quite enjoying the new ladies of June rolling out, aren’t you? Though I still long to see Anthro put out some awesome knee-length skirts like those of yore, I am very encouraged by the new Anthro crop. Encouraged enough so that I have brought home 3 of these beauties above within the last 2 weeks. Care to take a stab at which ones?

And a sort of confessional here….I fell prey to another necklace hunt at Anthro.

Wearing: Pants-Anthropologie Patch Pocket Trousers, Top-BR Outlet, Cardi-J.Crew Jackie, Necklace- Anthropologie Sea Spikes, Shoes-J.Crew factory Cece Studded Ballet Flats in suede

This necklace is gorgeous, and longish for a bib-style necklace, a fact which makes my long neck rejoice.  Word of warning however….you have to look at several necklaces and grab the one that is unmarred. Cause if you don’t, you’ll live my frustrating tale: My store only had one left when I finally decided to buy, and it had a huge black “birthmark” on one of the shells. So I ordered online, hoping I’d get an unscathed one. No such luck. Then I persisted and purchased from a store, owing the kind SA who looked through the bunch for me and picked a winner.  (Thank you to my ever patient, amazing staff in San Antonio, TX and Kierland Commons Anthro in Scottsdale, AZ. My saga is over thanks to all of you.) I highly recommend this necklace, seashell abnormalities aside. It’s lovely, and different, and cool.

What are your thoughts on the new arrivals? Favorites?

I’m ever a listening Anthro ear.
