There was yet another Anthro sale yesterday, this time mainly second/third cuts. I debated some charge-sends but ultimately decided to pass. I did manage to grab the Atomical Tee on second cut  in the navy pattern, which is quirky and has caught my eye for a while now but I wasn't willing to pay even $40 for a tee. Justified the order because I needed a size up in the Snapdragons Belt, in hopes that it will fit overlapping like the product photo... I would have ordered the L as well to compare, but of course it didn't pop back until today.

And of course, to get free shipping, I picked up the Gull Wing Dress in plum for $100. I won't keep it at that price, for sure, but if it gets a second cut within two weeks, I'll consider it. And I do want to try it on.

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...
