June 22nd, 2011

Still haven't had time to put up my MANY fitting room review pics. I am not quite used to working full-time and going to bed early.

I want to clean out my closet this weekend or earlier... meant to start today, which is why I have clean laundry still sitting around unfolded, but I think I may need to devote a weekend day to it. Sadly, because I want to go out on the weekend!

I did complete my list of owned and wishlisted Anthro items, to discover an interesting factoid: Of the 11 Anthro pieces I currently own, not counting my latest sale haul (short version: Eyeleted Corset Top in size 4 to compare and to make shipping, Eclipsed Alyssum Sandals because they are one of a few available in size 5/35, pink Folded Wings Tee and lavender Aviatrix Tee in XS for $10 each), I cover... 11 different brands carried by Anthropologie. I was hoping to find a size up/down trend, but no such luck. Also, I have never tried on pants at Anthro, so that eliminates all of the different denim brands.

Some brands I'm attracted to/recognize from blog reviews but don't yet own: Deletta, Anna Sui, Plenty by Tracy Reese, Corey Lynn Calter, Eva Franco, Field Flower by Wendi Reed, Leifsdottir, Moulinette Soeurs... There are tons of options. Mostly I just assume my true size (2/XS in tops, 2/S in dresses, 4/6 in skirts, no clue in pants because I don't buy them from Anthro) and always, always read reviews.

On Tuesday morning I ordered my sale haul before going to work, without having time to check my wishlist. Turns out that the Blurred Hydrangea Dress, which I've been lusting after but couldn't justify even at first-cut $200, somehow got 2 cuts while I wasn't looking... it's now at $50, but who knows whether I'll ever be able to find it. Shall call CS tomorrow during my lunch hour with fingers crossed! It was long out of stock online in my size, anyway, but I would probably have purchased at $100 and might have been able to get a PA. Oh well.

About

Seeing personal style through K's eyes.

I'll be chronicling my quest for personal style on a frugally-raised college student's budget. Fitting room reviews, style inspirations, musings/rants about dressing a petite, size-2 apple figure--just whatever is on my mind. I adore the Anthro aesthetic, but rarely pull it off in real life. Same goes for heels and make-up...
