A Copy Cat From Anthroholic Reader Katy! Heidi's Pinafore Pullover on eBay!

Copying another Blogger seems un-original, but isn't that why we blog outfits? In fact, it's an honor when someone copies me. So I'm sure Katy wouldn't mind that I loved her Purple outfit so much, I wanted to wear it myself.

 Many of you may remember that I found my Pinafore Pullover by Rosie Neira on Pop Back the morning of my Birthday.  I also found one for Heidi.  It turns out Heidi is too Tall (5'9") and her torso is too long for the sweater.  So she is selling her Pinafore Pullover in size Large on eBay.  It's the cheapest one there.  Here is the link so you can snag it.


Please use eBay Messaging for questions about the Sweater.
I suggest if you want to bid, use my link at the top of the right side bar to get a free trial of easy sniper.  If the max bid is high enough you are a sure bet to win. Or take the Buy It Now before someone bids.

Heishe was all over me this morning.  I left the house with tights covered in white fur. Ha-ha!  I wonder if anyone makes fur tights.  See his one little front foot curled up.  He walks around me and jumps up to run his teeth over my knee while he stomps around making biscuits on the carpet.  All the while purring and meowing like mad.

As for the left over snowflakes I mentioned in Monday's post.  I can't say yet, but one thing is for sure, I need to wait until my Laptop returns from being repaired.

 Notice there is no Security Device on my From The Poles Jacket.  Anthro Berkeley shipped the Jacket back using overnight express for the AM.  I bet that cost a pretty penny.  It was 2 days before Christmas and would have cost Anthro $90 if I had shipped it to them.  Instead, I choose ground.

 I've probably worn these Miss L Fire Totem Heels 10 times in 2 years. I love the red-brown carved wood heels.

There are no Pop Back links today since most of what I am wearing was from Catalogs that are now overwritten.  Hopefully you have placed these items in your Anthro Wish List and are checking for Pop Backs there.

I ordered two items that both received second cuts in yesterday's sale.  I plan to wear them together. I'm hoping for an Anthro return credit to show soon, so I can order the Shoelace Collar Coat by T Reese.



Although I'm also crazy in love with the Red Suede Chie Mihara's, but I just bought the Purple Suede Coclico's.  It might be a toss up between the T Reese Coat and the Red Chie's.  We shall see.

Love it Laura! Orange and purple are such a great combination, I think I need to reach for it more. That skirt just looks fabulous on you too. Those shoes are something special, the heel is very unexpected but awesome. How is the weather down there right now? Someone told me it was snowing the other day, but I think they were pulling my leg hehe.

Mandy said...

Laura, I am IN LOVE with those heels! Seriously, I am IN LOVE! And that outfit is just so perfect - love the purple Poles jacket paired with the Easy Keeper! A very Laura outfit! And your kitty is just too stinkin' cute! :) Have a good one, gal!

Louise said...

Laura there's nothing wrong with "copying", I don't really see it as copying anyway, Katy put together an awesome outfit and shared it with the world, providing inspiration for both these pieces! I'm sure she'd be immensely flattered that you chose the same outfit!

You should send Lisa at Respect the Shoes your lovely picture with Heishe for her animals reader photos! Your cat is just gorgeous. I'm guessing there is a funny mix up about the gender story behind the name?! Some friends had a rabbit called Jasmine for 6 years before the vets declared it was in fact male!!

Peggy said...

you look super cute! I wanted both the items you ordered from the sale but my store didn't have them and I only like to try on, not order online. Those heels are fab!!

Laura said...

Jess, It's true! The mountain passes were all closed. But no snow in Bako. People were stranded trying to come home through the valley. Not enough food and accomodations were available.

Mandy, My shoes are cool huh. You are right about Heishe, he's a little stinker.

Louise, You ate correct. I just sent the Photo to Lisa. So you can read the story when she posts. Heishe has more than one meaning.

Peggy, oh dear! Consider yourself lucky to have choices. Online isn't bad once you get used to it.

Kelly said...

Lovely outfit! I'm finding myself to be a copy-cat blogger now and then, as well. I think that's part of the fun of blogging to inspire one another!!!

Laura, i started writing a comment, but then i accidently hit the delete button - d'oh!
I copy all the time, and not just other bloggers. Things i see in magazines, and people on the street. I bet Katy would be very flattered right now if she read this!
I think your outfit is perfectly coordinated. The jacket is so flattering how it nips in at the waist. ANd those shoes...goodness, i love that detail on the heel!

Lisa said...

Love the purples! Oh yes, I am guilty of being a copy cat blogger too. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery :)

A said...

So lovely!

Jewish Girl said...

I love what you did with these shades of purple! And those heels are too cool...

Hope your computer gets fixed soon! The blogosphere misses you!

Laura said...

Kelly, I agree that we are here to inspire one another. I'd rather copy a fellow blogger than

Jen, there aren't many stylish people around in Bako. Although Heidi and I do copy one another on occasion. I hate it when I hit post and forget to return for the Word Verification.

Lisa, I've twice copied a blogger. Both times very recently. First Roxy with the layered Pinafore Pullover over the Snowscape Tank. It feels unfamiliar to me.

Jewish Girl, My Laptop returns Monday. I can hardly wait. LOL on you Anthroholic Readers Outfit Sunday. What a hoot your photo was.

Rachel said...

I was just thinking about that very same outfit today from anthroholic reader outfits. I can't get it out of my mind. I just got that skirt on sale and I plan to reproduce a similar outfit. My jacket will be the same color, but a different style. I always love your outfits!!!

Hi. I am not a blogger. But stumbled upon urs when researching the PHLOX & CORAL COAT. I will have to see if I remember to visit ur blog regularly. But it's quite possible I'm home. See, I too am anthro obsessed (although lately I've be a tad disappointed in all the polyester & acrylic they're using in their fabrics). I rarely shop anywhere else for clothing. Oh, also I'm a HUGE fan of shopping the sale rack so I appreciate when u note those prices in ur descriptions. I get excited & jealous @ the same time for u :p . Anyway, I hope to visit ur blog again. Happy Anthro-ing!!!

Jamie said...

Love your rendition of Katy's outfit. The jacket looks like it was just made for your and the heels on your Totem shoes are just fabulous. What an appropriate name! I also wore the Easy Keeper recently but haven't gotten to posting the pics yet. Sometime soon...

Laura said...

Rachel,
Please post your rendition of Katy's outfit. I'm always interested in different takes on the same outfit.

::Jen::,
If you went this far, you might as well go all the way. You will find that the Anthro blogging Community welcomes newcomers with open arms. If you love Anthro and want to learn everything and anything about your favorite store than this is the place for you. Please come back!

Jamie,
Katy's outfit is on the minds of many a blogger. I am keeping an eye out for additional renditions. Please post your California vacation outfits. Can't wait to see what you got from the Red Tag sale.

Tien said...

Aww, kitty! I think this bold pairing of purple works really well on you and your complexion. Great copying!
