ANTHROOOOOO…….Thanks for Free Shipping. But...
16 Days is Not Acceptable for Return Credit
Just when I thought you understood
Fast return credits are always GOOD
The last was back in under TEN
I knew you couldn’t repeat that again
I mailed three boxes in the last two weeks
This latest return rate totally stinks
I am dying for those Miss Allbright boots
But you’re holding all my Anthro loot
I despise waiting for Return Credits from Anthro. All my credits are ear-marked for ...you guessed it, more Anthro. Why is it they trust me enough to return defective products? And will even mail out a new item without me having to pay for the item again. So doesn’t it make sense to trust me to return unwanted items and just give me online or store credit? Is anyone else now experiencing this sudden down time in return rate after last months awesome 10 day returns?
I’m a little behind on posting OOTD’s. This one is from Thursday. The day I moved into my dreaded CUBICLE. Here is where I was. Here is where I went...
Where the hell am I supposed to put my maps? THE FLOOR! Poo!

I had to have this Jacket the minute I first set eyes on it. This is only the second time I have worn it. The first time was with a Silk Leifsdottir Blouse. The sleeve kept getting caught up in the brooch of the jacket. So it was time to find something more suitable to style is with. I think I found the perfect mate in the Polka Peppered Dress.

Since I am the photographer, there is no one to blame but me today.
Anthro's description of the Dress claimed Navy. Ha! It's Black. So Black tights seemed a suitable counterpart. And to throw in a bit of color, I added Anthro's Limoncello Necklace.
And the finishing touches include:

Now for a Quick No Anthro Zone Review: The Dog Trot Cardi by Monogram (HWR). Was $128, now on sale for $70.
Shop the Dog Trot Cardi here.
The last HWR (Monogram) Sweater I ordered (the Chocolate Box Cardi) was horribly itchy. I am pleased to say this Cardi is wonderful. Maybe a little scratchy feeling, but definitely not itchy. I ordered the Brown Colorway with Pink Dogs.
SIZE: I ordered by normal size SMALL. 5’6” tall, 125 lbs, 35-27-36, with narrow shoulders.
FIT: The fit is excellent. The sleeves are not too long. The hem length is right below the hips as it should be.
DETAILS: This is a Grandma/Grandpa Cardi. If you don’t like that style, then outfit the Cardi with something ultra feminine. I am on the look out for a ruffled Pink or Yellow dress preferably. Although a blouse might do the trick. There is an extra Button/Yarn tag included. This is hand wash, lay flat to dry.
The sweetest detail is the little Pink Scottie Dog under the left Pocket. His collar is Yellow with a Gold Puffer Heart tag.
Regarding negative reviews: I am sensitive to wool, and did not find this sweater itchy. A little rough? Yes! I had plenty of room in the sleeves. They did not feel tight on my arms. Maybe that would be an issue if I wore a blouse with sleeves. I didn’t at all find the knit to appear cheap. There were no seems that appeared torn or ripped. Due to the print of the knit, I think that is an illusion.
This product is recommended with a full 5 stars from GeoInCalifornia – Order TTS or down if between sizes.
And look what I scored for $30 yesterday from the August Catalog. I'm thinking I might wear it with the Dog Trot Cardi. Hmmm, what can I add for color? What shoes should I wear? Pink?

Check out the beautiful Red weave my wonderful Sara added to my hair. It's pretty bright now, but should tone down in a week or two.
