Fresh Picks to Follow: Lacing It Up

Hi ladies...I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.  I had a pretty exhausting week at work and needed to blow of some steam Friday night.  So, I ended up going out and I neglected to post my Fresh Picks.  This week’s post is inspired by the Discovered Lace Dress (see below) that I tried on some time ago and I loved it.  I’m hopeful that I would be able to get it, if it becomes available again.  

Ultra feminine and easy to wear, LACE is one fall fashion trend that is affordable and works beautifully with some of the season’s more masculine trends, like loafers or oxfords.  It's a look that's sexy enough to wear on a first date, but it’s still sophisticated enough to wear in the office.  An easy way to incorporate lace into your wardrobe is to buy some lace tights and pair them with a pencil skirt or some booties.  Look below to see the many ways you can wear lace this fall.

Anthropologie's Holiday Book Drive

I was so happy to see another great community service project by Anthropologie.  Anthropologie is inviting customers to give the gift of reading to children in need during its Holiday Book Drive. The book drive provides an opportunity for customers to donate books through Reader To Reader, the designated non-profit organization (see here). Reader To Reader's book donation programs have donated more than 4 million books to schools, libraries and shelters.  In the alternative, Anthropologie is also providing customers the opportunity to donate a stuffed animal to a local children’s hospital. Let’s try to do our part and give back to the community this holiday season.

Sale - Shopping Overload

Hi Ladies…I hope that you all are having a great week so far.   I wanted to post my reviews from some of my online purchases.  My online shopping has gotten a little out of control, especially with the free shipping offer.  Last night I came home to all these boxes at my door. 

I was pretty excited about my orders until I tried everything on.  Below are some of the things that I have received so far.  You won’t believe that I’m still waiting on two other items to come in the mail….I know…yikes!  Here we go:

1.  I ordered the Seraphim Necklace in orange for $29.95.  I saw this necklace on one of the sales associates a few weeks ago and it looked amazing on her.  The colors are great for the fall season and it’s a piece that will carry over into other seasons.  I’ll be keeping this necklace.

2. I also ordered the Campaign Jacket in beige for $49.95 in a size small.  I saw this jacket on someone else’s wishlist, and added it to mine.  I have never seen the jacket on anyone, but I thought it was cute in the picture.  However, when I tried it on, I didn’t have the same thought.  Unfortunately, I plan on returning this one.

3. Next was the Camilla Dress in Blue for $69.95 in a size small.  I thought that this dress was gorgeous online.  The embroidery on the front and the back of the dress is so intricate and feminine.  The dress has a thin ribbon sash that ties in the back.  When I tried on this dress, I didn’t love the way it looked on me.  Unfortunately, I plan on returning this one too.

4. I also bought the Once & Always Tee in purple for $29.95 in a size small.  I really liked the look and feel of this shirt.  I wasn’t sure that I would like the ruffles, but it adds a romantic and classy look to the shirt.  The shirt is much more stunning on, than on the hanger.  The material of the body of the shirt is a little bit thin, so you’ll have to wear a natural color bra.  I waited for this one to go on sale and I finally got it.  I’ll be keeping this one.

5. The last item that I ordered was the Circle the Globe Skirt in navy for $39.95 in a size six (6).  I tried this skirt on in the store, but I missed out when it first went on sale.   I was able to purchase this one when it pop-backed up on my wishlist.  I love this look of this skirt – it’s not too poufy, but just enough flare.  This is a great skirt for summer and will transition nicely in into the fall and winter.  I highly recommend buying this skirt…obviously I’ll be keeping this one.
