Corduroy Anthem

The other day, a friend of mine asked me if I own a pair of regular blue jeans. I balked at the question.

Of course! I answered. “Then why don’t you ever wear them?” To which I responded: Have you ever tried on a pair of AG Stevie Cords?

Friend: AG what’s?

Me: AG STEVIES. You can find them at Anthropologie.

Friend: (shakes her head no.)

Me: (makes sad noise.) Girl, you haven’t lived. Do your butt a favor and get over to Anthro STAT. You can’t stop at one. Swear to you. After you’ve had them on for a day, you’ll understand why my regular jeans collect a little bit o’ dust.

Friend: Those cords can’t be as comfortable as my jeans.

Me: Here, feel them! (while shoving my cord-clad thigh towards her…) Feel how soft these are.

Friend: Ooh, Yeah. They are pretty soft.

Me: Wait ’til your money maker’s in them. They’re straight up cushy on the tushy.

(The conversation ended with me offering to drive her to Anthro right then and there. She declined, citing she had ‘so much to do’ that day. Hey, it’s her own butt discomfort, not mine. I did my part.) :)

Call it a fave. Call it my go-to. Call it the Anthromollogies uniform if you will…I unabashedly love them. I’ll sing the cord anthem ’til I’m dead and gone.

So here’s to AG cords, a 4 x OOTD salute to those softies that have kept me comfy, warm, and happy.

Light the Candles

…Cause it’s my birthday weekend, friends! Yee-ha!

In honor of the day of my birth, I did a bit ‘o damage at Anthro with my birthday discount. Totally my idea of a good time.

I picked up a new pair of cords that have made all of my cinnamon and rust dreams come true. They flat out rule.

Wearing: Pants-Anthropologie AG Stevie Cords, Top-Gap, Cardi-Anthropologie Askew Ruffled Cardigan, Necklace-Anthropologie La Jolla, Boots-Anthropologie Winding Ruffle

Apparently I was on a sweater kick cause I also picked up:

The Peter Pan Pretender Sweater

The Intarsia Bow Cardigan

And yes…also the Dimensional Petals Cardi too.

Wait, still more. I know….buck wild, I tell you.

Worn to a birthday lunch today with my GF’s, I wore 3 newbies. Can you tell which ones?

Wearing: Top-Ann Taylor, Skirt-Anthropologie Indigo Striations Sweater Skirt , Tights-Anthropologie Pure and Good in Moss, Necklace-Anthropologie Lily Mineral, Shoes-Chie Mihara Light

Oh man, this skirt! Next to pajamas, I don’t think I’ve ever worn anything so comfortable. For reals. The striations are fantasticly colorful without being overwhelming, and the uneven hemline is super chic while maintaining a definite laid-back vibe. So perfect.

Don’t forget to check out the info on the Anthromollogies Holiday Frosting Event coming up on November 15! It’s gonna be so awesome!

Off to celebrate! Hope your weekend is nothing short of fabulous too!

We Seattled.

And I’m officially enamored. Gor. Geous. Ridiculously gorgeous.  Greener than green. Cleaner than clean. Restaurants to end all restaurants. We’re sold….hook, line, and sinker. Now if fate will just cooperate….2 years from now, it could be our home. Here’s a little bit of what we did.

Had to wake up at 4:45 a.m. to catch our flight. 'nuff said.

Dropped our things at the hotel and headed out for adventure. First stop:

Funky Alley right next to Pike's Market....covered in chewed up gum wads. It was both totally gross and totally cool at the same time.

See? Cool. And gross. I didn't have a rubber glove on me, or I would've stuck my own wad on there. Isn't art so subjective?

City in bloom.

On the Ferry to Bainbridge Island.

Mr. Banks and MacGyver.

Hi, gorgeous view. How fabulous would this be if this was your commute every day?!

Downtown Seattle. Electric Blue trees? I'm in.

Art museum. Saw the Gauguin exhibit which we went to for free when a nice downtown cop handed us tickets. Great exhibit. And did I mention it was free?!

Serious Pie: Seriously Good Pizza. Even our little Mr. Banks thought so (notice bite mark in coaster)... Tom Douglas is a God. For reals. We ate at 4 of his restaurants while there, and I think our favorites were Serious Pie and Lola. Get the Eggs Benedict if you hit Lola, and the handmade doughnuts. Your mouth will thank you. Forever.

A few OOTD’s: Me messing around on a huge Anchor on Bainbridge Island.

Travel Wear: Top-Anthropologie Hanalei Buttondown, Pants-AG Ankle Stevies, Shoes- J.Crew Factory, Earrings-BR

Me, windblown from the ferry, ready to stuff our faces at Iver’s. YUM. I wore this jacket every day and was stopped multiple times a day by complete strangers telling me how much they loved it.  It truly has been one of my best Anthro purchases ever.

Windblown Wear: Top-J.Crew Buffalo Check, Skirt-Talbots, Tights-Anthro, Boots-Anthropologie Winding Ruffle, Necklace-Vintage, Belt- Anthropologie ,Coat- Anthropologie

Roundup: Must go back, ASAP. Weather = gorgeous. Sight seeing aplenty. Shopping = awesome. Picked up a few goodies I’ll show you soon, the most exciting one acquired at Nordstrom Rack of all places.  I don’t usually have the best of luck for myself there. Happily, this time, luck was on my side. Can’t wait to show ya. Anthro….gotta say, I was a little disappointed.  The store is HUGE!! Two stories.  They have really cool pieces, one of a kind vintage treasures that are way beyond my budget…but I drooled at them nonetheless.  I think I hit this store at an odd time…right before new May arrivals, so the store was completely picked over.  I did, however, find the pair of pants I was after:

Patch Pocket Trousers

I’m obsessed with them.  They have perfect rear-end pocket placement, diminishing the whoomp-there-it-is factor. Hollah. I’m eyeing other colors now.

I have many posts in the works.  A discussion is def in order about the new May arrivals, don’tcha think?  Oi!! I’ve added about 20 things to my wishlist, just yesterday.  Hi Anthro, so glad you’re back, EN FORCE!

xoxo Molly
