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!

T-Minus 11 Days!!

That’s right, Ladies. T-Minus 11 Days until the big Anthromollogies event.  I’m SO excited! Sorry to sound like a broken record, but if you want to attend, you must email me to RSVP: molly@anthromollogies.com (or contact the La Cantera location @ 210-641-1029)

I can’t even tell you how pumped I am to gather with 30+ fellow Ultra-Anthropologie-Fans for an evening full of how-to’s in creative styling, fabulous tips to satiate any accessory-needy wardrobe, personally catered fashion advice, gnoshing, sipping, croony Indie music, and general warm fuzzies resulting from the shared love/hype of all things Anthro. Doesn’t it just give you the tinglies thinking about it?

I’ll tell ya what else gives me the tinglies…pulling out fallish skirts with birds on them. Hello, In The Trees Skirt….I’ve missed you.

Wearing: Skirt-Anthropologie In The Trees Skirt, Sweater-Anthropologie Space-Dyed Cowlneck, Belt-Anthropologie Looping Lanes, Earrings-Anthropologie Prospector’s Prize Dangles, Tights-Anthropologie Hue Opaque, Shoes-Anthropologie Lass and Laddie Oxfords

Other new Anthro items giving me the tinglies: Accessories, a.k.a. Anthro’s Forte’.

Plush Stole: Slay me, Anthro. You slay me. MUST HAVE.

Fronded Pom Scarf: I’m changing my middle name to Fronded Pom. Love it.

Apricity Curl Loop: This baby is beautiful. I’ve tried her on, and she’s a quality piece.

Edita Looped Fringe Scarf

Pom Beanie-I found this beanie 3 weeks ago in the Austin store and FELL HARD for the color. So I bought it. Super soft, super cute, super perfect.

Lace Hooded Cloche – Oh. My. Makes me a little weak in the knees just to look at it.

Iced Dew Bracelet Set- They winked at me when I walked by, kid you not! So I had to buy ‘em. Can you blame me?!

 

What fallish items are giving you the tinglies lately?

Happy Monday!

Flex your Styling Muscle Series – Anthropologie Hourglass Form Dress

First, if you have a second, please feel free to check out my Shop Anthromollogies page as I have added many new items today, including J.Crew, Lululemon, Anthropologie, and Banana Republic.  Hope you find something you like.

Secondly, thank you all for your contribution in celebrating my one year of blogging.  As you can see below….the winners shall expect their loot in the coming days.  See?….

Blogiversary Winners' Loot. En route!

And, you may have noticed in the title of this post, that I’ve decided to actually give a name to my styling series posts, you know….the ones where I take an Anthro item and style it a bunch of different ways. The name:

“Flex Your Styling Muscle”.

You like?  Hope so.  In this post series, you can expect to see stylings of the same item done at least 6 different ways.  What I expect is to continually challenge myself to see an item in my closet differently, so that I fall in love with it again and again every time I wear it.  Here’s hoping it’s inspiring for not only me but you too.  That said, I invite you to send me requests of items you’d like to see styled in this series.  If I have the item, I will gladly go for it and style the item in person.  If I do not own the item, I’m just gonna have to Polyvore the heck out of it.  Hope that’s alright with you.

So, now that we’ve got the formalities out of the way, let’s flex some style muscle, why don’t we?

Game on, Hourglass Form Dress.

 

Hourglass Form Dress

This dress speaks yummy blank canvas to me.  And the mustard color is one of my faves for sure.  I’m sure some of you may disagree with me, but I do sincerely believe mustard yellow as a color pairs well with just about anything in a wardrobe.  I know, I know… many times I hear things like…I can’t wear yellow next to my face. Well, the beauty of this dress is that you can layer under and over, adding in pops of color that DO look good next to your face and balance the mustard factor out.  And, you’ll look dang cool in the meantime.

Set 1: Hourglass Form Dress with: Cardi-LiaMolly, Tights-Anthro Dotted Cluster, Shoes-Anthro Pointed Light Oxfords. This one was super easy. Black with gold touches? Add a bit of gray...done.

Here’s proof that I actually try on my styling sets to make sure they work as far as length, proportion, and hue.

Set 2: Hourglass Form Dress with: Sweater-J.Crew Jester Turtleneck (picked up for $18 dollahs. aww yeah!), Belt-J.Crew, Purple Tights-J.Crew, Shoes-Anthropologie Daybreak T-Straps. Ugh, SO SORRY for my streaked mirror. KIDS! What to do with 'em? Pass the beer nuts....hehe. Jewel Tones of Mustard, Green, and Purple. They're the three amigos, I tell ya. Close up of purple tights and green shoes below:

Yum.

Set 3: Hourglass Form Dress with: Top-Anthropologie Tarpan Buttondown, Belt-Anthro Snakebite, Tights-J.Crew, Shoes-Anthro Lass and Laddie Oxfords. You could easily switch the belt out with a fuschia, light pink, gold, and switch the tights with brown or nude.

Set 4: Hourglass Form Dress with: Jacket-Anthropologie Cassia Jacket, Belt-Anthropologie, Tights-Anthropologie, Shoes-Anthropologie High Glossed Loafers. Bought the Cassia Jacket at the sale two weeks ago. This little drapey number has lovely windowpane detailing, and this colorway is the best one by far. Mustard, Rust, and Turquoise....be still my beating heart.

Set 5: Hourglass Form Dress with: Shirt-J.Crew Buffalo Check, Belt-Anthropologie Dusk Blue Suede Belt, Shoes-Faryl Robin, Tights-J.Crew. Continuing the Mustard, Rust, Aqua/Turquoise affair here. Loving the mix of prints here. I had fun with this particular Buffalo Check top and this dress; see below.

Set 6: Hourglass Form Dress with: Shirt-J.Crew Buffalo check, Necklace-Anthropologie Sun Kingdom Necklace, Belt-Anthropologie Dasara Belt , Tights-HUE dark green, Boots-Anthropologie Gilgarran. These colors are SO fall; mustard, rust, brown, and dark green. Makes me want to get to holiday eatin' again.

Set 7: Hourglass Form Dress with: Shirt-J.CRew Buffalo Check, Scarf-Anthropologie name?, Belt-Anthropologie, Tights-HUE green , Booties-Anthropologie Times Three Booties. Continuing with the mustard, rust and greens.

Set 8: Hourglass Form Dress with: Cardi-J.Crew Ethereal Ruffle, Shoes-Anthropologie Wingspan Heels, TIghts-HUE blue-green, Necklace-Anthropologie. These shoes just begged to paired with this dress. So I based everything off the sweet shoes. Could do a sweet skinny metallic gold belt with this set too.

I had several more outfits still to go when my sojourn in the closet was cut short by one wailing, chunky little 3 1/2 month old.  So sorry. But cheeks had to be kissed and loved on.

Per usual, I would love to know which set speaks your language.  Feedback, ladies….

I will be making a few changes to the blog in the coming days, adding pages up top specifically for DIY posts, Queen of Your Closet posts, and Flex Your Style Muscle Posts.  Hope this makes my blog much easier to navigate.  Any feedback would be appreciated.

Colorphile post still to come this week, a challenge, the Little Man Shower, and much more….

xoxo Molly
