I sprang for Anthro's Anadyomene Cardi, in Ivory by Rosie Neira, at full price. Venus Anadyomene "Venus Rising From the Sea" was one of the iconic representations of Aphrodite. The color, length, and simple but interesting detailing will make this piece versatile. That alone justifies the purchase. I meant to take a photo of the shoulder. The neckline detail extends over the right shoulder, but not the left. Initially I thought the extended piece looked out of place, and I had received a defective Cardi. The online Product Photo proved otherwise. I have since grown to like the unique bit of stray interest that extends a few inches down the back. The knit is soft and has stretch. I sized up from my normal size Small to a Medium. Snaps were included between the top buttons to prevent gap.

I belted over the Cardi with J Crew's Factory Leather Belt in Orchid Shadow. I thought about using a Yellow belt. But that would have added to the already Yellow Matchy-ness of the outfit.

I fell head over wedges in love when I saw these on Zappos.

I ordered them right away. I've returned 2 pairs of Navy shoes this month. These were too narrow for the wide front of my foot. Perfect everywhere else. My quest continues.

And now for even more Matchy Match. The Bejeweled Bee Ring by Kenneth Lane. I think my Bee Ring wants to meet Kristin's Bee Pin on Lovely Apidea.

To distract from my Matchy Match, I went with Anthro's Semaphores Necklace by Cursive. A cute, cheap, but interesting little thing, that shines with unique Anthro-osity.

I received a scolding and a threat to stop reading, from a Regular Reader. All that for making a choice I consider my prerogative. This was in reference to my email to Anthro regarding skewed review votes. Oddly enough this was the first comment this Reader ever made on my blog. Why is it she felt now was the time to be negative, when not once in the past did she ever offer a positive comment? Where has human decency gone?
I know this isn't common standard among the Anthro Community. I certainly would not choose to blog if it were. As a Blogger and a Reader I appreciate the helpful reviews and information I am privy to. Thank You's are fantastic, but I don't expect them. However I do expect consideration for my personal choices, as much as I consider others. Debating those choices is always open for discussion in a friendly and respectful manner.
I got your back!

Happy Mompos Monday to all my Lovely Readers. Don't be strangers. Your point of view is appreciated. Please feel free to comment with Anthro Sister Love and Respect, Laura (firstname.lastname@example.org)
