Yeah for me! I didn't partake of the Anthro Sale. Only because there was nothing that caught my fancy.
Today is flying buy. and I am struggling to keep up with it all. What better to calm my frazzled nerves, and keep my feet planted on Mother Earth, than this sweet UP-STYLED pairing?
This is Monday's Reject! The Calm Seas Skirt from Anthro August 09 and the Earthly Delights Cardi from August 10. A little Tropical-Nautical Birdie mix up.

Bakersfield is frying up to a boiling 103 Degrees F. I didn't mind getting a little wet for the sake of this ACC blog post. The fountain is located directly in front of the Taj Majal where I work.
I really have a tough time passing up any Vintage inspired, crochet embellished, colorful Cardi offered by Anthro. I never tire of them. And if there is no room in my chaotic closet, well then by golly let there be an ACC sale to make space. Ha-ha!

You can buy them here in Grey.
This is a comfortable, light weight, low heeled Peep Toe. But not at all the bright red color as shown in Anthro's online image. I was a bit disappointed in the color difference. I have only worn these a few times over the last year. They are more of a faded looking pinkish color. And the wooden heels are noisy in the "Tiled Hallways of the Taj Majal." Think deep male monotone voice when you read that line.
See what I mean about the color difference?
About Duncan? Lovingly referred to as DuncaButt! If I write too much I will cry.
Duncan was a Brown baby African Parrot Heidi bought in Hawaii when she ran the Maui Marathon. One day he got scared and flew off Mike's shoulders and down a hill near their home in Frazier Park CA It was a very bad week, because Mike was to be deployed to Afghanistan. They did everything they could to find him. He was still just a baby and could barely fly.
I bird sat Duncan many times. Easy for me since I grew up around pet birds. Since Duncan flew down the hill that dreadful day (about 5 months ago) I haven't worn my Duncan Earrings. Heidi also has a pair. Today I put them on.

The Duncan Earrings sold out before ever making it to sale
OK! Now I am getting weepy. I loved that sometimes grouchy little bird. Yes he bit me many times and went poo on my carpet. But I didn't care. Yes he was demanding and would peck the kitchen counter, raid his food bowl, and throw food on the floor if it wasn't to his liking. He was just starting to imitate human sounds too. One weekend Mike brought him over without enough peanuts. There was hell to pay for that. I gave him Hot Chili Pepper peanuts. He loved them. Only after I licked most of the salt off.
The day I brought up uTube and we both danced and squawked with the parrots in the videos, was the day I fell in love with my friends birdie. Geez!
Bye for now. Much Love, Laura
