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