Action Jackson

It’s been an action-packed weekend around here.  That wedding I was telling you all about?  The reception was last night, and it was so fun.  A few late nights, a lot of glue sticks, bruised thumbs from hammering nails, a near over-dosing on Italian Sodas and donuts, tons of DIY’s, yep…that about sums it up.  Here’s a sneak peek.  More photos and details to follow:

Green and Gray Paper Fan Glory Wall. Turned out mighty nice.

Aside from the wedding, I put into action one of my Painted Plaid stylings from this post here.

Remember her?

Look #2

Well, I did it….done and wore it. Minus the hat.  It was a good hair day…you understand.

The Painted Plaid print is quite conducive to camouflaging all sorts of evils, I must say.  It held up nicely today when it was the unlucky target of an impressive amount of baby spit-up, courtesy of this little dude here:

Painted Plaid survives a date with the Bankster.

And I mean really…could he be any pudgier? Cuter?!?

Hat and booties are from etsy. I die. Thank you for indulging me.

Stay tuned for all the action in the coming weeks, y’all.   Blogiversay giveaway coming your way, complete wedding reception low-down, Little man baby shower, Queen of your Closet series, and much more.

A girl’s gonna need some Dramamine, what with all the commotion around here!

Gratefully In caWHOOts.

First off, a very Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  This post was actually supposed to run a few days ago but I never got around to finishing it until today.  My stuffing, 2 pies, casserole, veggie tray, and ice cream are all ready to go…now we just wait to head out to our dear friends’ house to eat our way to a coma.  Hope you all are enjoying the day and as much as I am…. I have so much to be grateful for, and all cheesiness aside, I am sincerely grateful for all of you who continue to read this blog, for your comments, and  of course, for our shared appreciation of all things Anthro.  Happy Turkeying, y’all.

So, I want to know what kind of preparation you are up to in anticipation of the first ever Anthro Black Friday sale?  Have you called your store ahead to check on inventory?  Set one,….no, two…..okay….maybe five alarms for 12:01 a.m. Friday morning to purchase online at an additional 50% off the sale stock? Or perhaps for a 5 a.m. wake-up call to head out to stores?  Baked muffins for the Anthro staff to light up their bleary 6 a.m. eyes?

I ask because I have done perhaps all of the above, or maybe only one.  I’ll never tell.  However, I do make a mean blueberry muffin.  Just sayin’…..

I’m happy to report my local store will open it’s fabulous doors at 6 a.m. Four (maybe five) of my lovely posse are in cawhoots with me, their alarm clocks set as well, and barring any natural disasters….we will be there, hot cocoas in hand, awaiting the wafting scent of Volcano candles taunting us from the belly of the beast.  Bring it, Anthro sale rack.

‘Whoo’ of you out there owns the Lemon Lift Off Blouse?  (sorry, can’t help myself…) This was it’s maiden voyage for me, as I purchased it while I was still packin’ a baby.  I really, really dig this blouse, especially the whimsical owls, and am so glad I snagged one when it hit sale.  If you can find one on the sale racks this Friday, I highly recommend buyin’ it.  In my opinion, it runs a bit small.  The more I play around with this blouse in Polyvore and IRL, the more convinced I am that it’s the “Talented Mr. Ripley” of my closet.  WHOO’d have thunk it?!  (okay, okay…I’ll stop. Promise.) I had fun pairing the blouse with the turquoise High Gloss Loafers as they did on the model shot.  And, she was also wearing green AG Stevies, remember?  So I followed Anthro’s lead and infused the outfit with some green as well.  Here’s the result:


Wearing: Top-Anthropologie Lemon Lift Off Blouse, Skirt- Anthropologie Odille, Belt- Anthropologie, Shoes- Anthropologie High Gloss Loafers, Bracelet- Anthropologie, Earrings- Anthropologie

Can’t wait to hear about all the Friday pandemonium.  Word to the wise: if you find yourself getting stressed out, angry, impatient, or frustrated because some chick snagged the last Painted Plaid Dress right in front of you….. head over to the home section, take the lid off a Volcano candle, stick your nose as close as possible to the wick, and take a whiff.

Leave me a comment and let me know about your awesome scores, fantastic finds, insane luck, and….though I hope not…..tell me about any disappointments too.  ‘T’ minus 10 hours, ladies!  Sending sweet sale-scoring vibes your way.

xoxo Molly
