Oh Happy Wednesday OOTD! My order from last weeks Anthro sale finally arrived at my door last night at 7 PM. So after much trying on, taking off, air fluffing, and tedious ironing, with many shoe and jewelry presto chango's...
...here is my styling for the Lynx and Leo Dress.
I can't sing enough praises about this Cinderella Dress. If I were not who I am, I would send this back. Because lord knows I am too old to pretend to be Cinderella.
Instead I will take the Cindy out of the Dress and add some Cinder by covering most of it up with the Earthly Delights Cardi.
But I will give my Dear Readers just a glimpse of what the rest of my World will never, no not ever see.
Don't panic! No one is around at 5:30 AM. How dare I go BRA LESS?
Lynx and Leo Dress - by Maeve - Anthro on sale Aug 2010
I would have never gotten into this dress without the help of
1. Elastic Back Panel and
2. Adjustable Straps.
The dress is as near to a perfect fit as I can get. I actually like the empire waist.
You guys are all wishing you had ordered this dress aren't you? Tell the truth!
I read the reviews carefully. This dress is everything the reviewers said it would be.
I would gladly have paid full price for it. But I didn't.
Sad little note. It has a tiny hole near the hemline. I will darn carefully with needle and thread.
Earthly Delights Cardi - by Sparrow - Anthro on sale AUG 2010
This Cardi is deep dark Blue. The crochet down the placket is also
|Underlined Heels - by Coclico - Anthro on Sale APR 2010|
I tried on 4 different pairs of shoes. Sandals were the best choice since
it's nearing 100° F today. I went with something darker to balance out the
dark sweater. This dress dictates heels to me.
I love this pair of Coclico's. Uber expensive even on sale, but well worth it.The attraction is the red piping around the straps, and the Berkie like foot bed.
The first pair Anthro sent me had the most annoying pop click in the heel.
CS immediately air mailed a second pair.
They arrived the next day. I heart Anthro CS.
|Orla Kiely Reversible Leather Shoulder Bag in Cream Olive - AW09 Collection Orla Keily US Jan 2010|
I stalked this sucker on the Orla Keily US site. Sure enough, a week later it went on sale. The Autumn/Winter Collection usually does on January 1st. I paid more for it on Orla Keily's site. We all know Anthro sale prices are the best. I don't use this bag often enough. I was happy to bring it out today with the Lynx and Leo. It's reversible and Olive Green inside.
|Glitzy Starfish Earrings - Anthro FEB 2010|
I adore these cubic zirconium paved Sterling Starfish. These paved earrings are outrageously expensive and never make it to the Anthro sale section. I have only 2 pairs. The Starfish and the darling colorful Parrots. Sniff! A few of you know how close I was to Duncan. I was his sitter when Heidi and Mike went out of town. I still can't wear the Parrot earrings because I miss that sweet bird.
|Blooming Tendrils Necklace - Anthro on Sale APR 2009|
This is one styling for the Lynx and Leo Dress. I also plan to wear the Turquoise Abuzz Cardi as it was styled by Anthro. Minus the belt on the outside of the Cardi.
Well, off I go to don a bra and get to work.
Hope you all have a wonderful fabulous Wednesday, Laura
