Just came back from a marathon 6-hour shopping trip. Lots of pictures and reviews to come, both of my many online orders that arrived over the past month and various fitting room reviews. But first, I wrote up an extensive sale room report of my local DE Anthro for Effortless Anthropologie's weekend community post, and I want to save it for posterity!

The Newark, DE sale room was pretty packed. I took notes as best as I could remember. Outside the sale room, I saw the Take Action Dress in original colorway, sz 0, 8; also two new colors of the Whirligig Dress, dusty purple and rust orange.
On sale:
Lavendula Chemise, sz L
Mompos Dress, sz 0, marked down for hole in the back fabric
Land of Springs Dress in red, sz M
Diamond Lattice Dress, sz 10
lots of Shore House Shifts
Glanz Dress, sz 12
D'armee Dress, sz 4 green, sz 6 navy and gray
Soft Bow Belt, sz M taupe and sz L blue
Drawing Parallels Skirt - green, sz XS x2, M
Drawing Parallels Skirt - plum, sz XS x2, S, M
Drawing Parallels Skirt - white, sz XS, M x2, Lx2
Drawing Parallels Skirt - black, sz XS, S x2, M x4
Ackee Pencil Skirt, sz 0 x2

Doyle's Desk Tunic, sz 12
Brickwork Tee in navy, sx XS
Runny Yoke Skirt in black, sz 4 (marked down to $20)
Things I don't know the name of:
A really weird Tracy Reese dress, colorblock with a striped skirt and thin jersey fabric... I tried it on and took a picture, but not yet uploaded. In sz P (XS) and M, marked down to $30.
Purple tie-dye-ish maxi by Isabella Sinclair, marked down to second cut $70, sz 8.
Gray sheer stripe knit pullover, which has been popular but the name is slipping my mind right now, marked down to $20 a while back, in sz M and L.
Lots of taupe and I think brown tweed-ish skirts, similar to the Runny Yoke but symmetrical, also marked down to $20. I bought a sz 4 in the taupe, so I can post a picture later if anyone is interested.
Also, I think, a Dissolving Spectrum Cardi.

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...
