Pebbled and Primped, Orla, and a recent Anthro Pop Back from December 2008! What?

I was browsing online catalogs looking for the name of an item I have.  I found it in the December 2008 catalog.  The item is the Caped Cardigan by Moth in Navy.  Lo and behold, there just happened to be a Caped Cardi in size small in Purple available in the old catalog.

  Sorry, I know that's a lot of stuff to list.  But there are some who appreciate the details. 

So I ordered the Caped Cardi fully expecting  to receive a cancellation notice.  Yeah!  It shipped.  Here I am wearing it.  My Navy version is so well loved it’s getting worn looking.

There was also a Navy in size Small HERE.  But when I checked today it was gone. Just like that!

The Ethereal Henley I'm wearing is almost 2 years old. I have never worn it before today.  I had to dig this one out of the back of the spare closet.  I just don’t own long sleeve tops.  But I needed sleeves to keep me warm, since the cape won’t work under a jacket.

Who got a clear bangle with every way to say accessory etched on the inside?  It’s actually a commemorative piece for the new Anthro Accessory Store in Maryland.  I’m just curious if it was Anthro Card Holders who got this gift.  Both Heidi and Christine are card holders, but haven’t yet received the bangle.  It’s super comfortable.  I definitely love it and plan to wear mine tomorrow.

The words on the Bangle actually come from an Anthro website video a few months ago. In the video a model is trying on shoes as they parade past. The stars of the show (the shoes) are given all these names in the video credits.  Mandy named her new Blog “Bobs and Doodads.”  She chose the name from the video credits.  Mandy was overjoyed when she found her blog name is listed on the Anthro Bangle.  I was amazed at her creative choice.

 I'm sporting the Pebbled and Primped boots again.  I love them with Athleta’s Sherpa Skirt.  They are both the perfect Olive Green in color.  Although these boots can turn Chameleon on you in any given time.  Black, Grey, and Brown also go very well.   Anthro’s Floral Spray Tights had been stuffed in my overflowing drawer full of tights as yet to be worn.  I was happy to pull them out today and put them to good use.

 You can see Anthro's Plum Grove Necklace I am wearing HERE.

I can't wait until after tomorrow.  I am on vacation for an entire blissful week plus one extra day.

Here are a few things I plan to do: Blog, Blog, Blog, and Shop, Shop, Shop. Celebrate my Birthday!  Go to lunch at Seven Oaks Country Club on my Birthday with my Team from work.  Enjoy Christmas! Visit the FAMILY! 

Here are a few things I am not planning to do: Step foot into the office, and clean house.

Anyone else taking time off from work? Raise your hand and scream YES! 
Can't here you.  Still can't here you.  Ha-ha!

Wow that is amazing, fancy finding such hidden treasures at such knock out prices! The cape is so cute as well, I don't blame you for snatching it up!

I finish work at midday on Christmas Eve and go back on Tuesday 4th Jan as the Monday is a bank holiday in the UK. I can't wait for some time off :)

I LOVE that caped cardi!! The whole outfit is awesome!!

Merry Christmas.

Mandy said...

Awww you look so perfect in your popback cape!! Love it! Plum and purple really are great colors on you, especially paired with the cream henley (I love the layered look there!). And those tights are lovely!! I wish I could wear Anthro tights, but they're always too short on me!! And I must say that your Pebbleds look so much better than mine did! I think I just got a cruddy pair because yours look so classy and nice, Laura!!

Elizabeth said...

Have a lovely vacation! And as always, thanks for including the details (:

Laura said...

Louise, Yeah for Pop Backs, good deals, and vacation.

Shelley, Yeah for the Caped Cardi and Christmas.

Mandy, Yeah for Purple, I have worn it every day this week.

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

You look fabulous in that capelet! Made more fantastic with the amazing score!

Chrissy said...

I want that capelet! So cute!

Laura said...

Elizabeth, Those details are mighty time consuming. But I have been diligently adding everything to my Virtual Closet descriptions for the future.

Lisa, Someone recently snagged the Navy one. It was there Monday, then gone Tuesday.

Chrissy, Alas, something tells me they are gone forever. Unless someone returns the Small Navy.

Your holiday of blogging and shopping sounds good! I have one week off during xmas, and I plan to do the same, although unlike you,i MIGHT add "clean house" to my list of things to do! hehe

Kelly said...

That's amazing you were able to find a pop-back from 2008, and such a great one at that!

Enjoy your time off! My whole company shuts down the week between Christmas and New Year's, so I'm really looking forward to the break!!!
