I had to go to the dentist on Saturday. I had 45 minutes to kill before my appointment and decided to stop by the Anthropologie store across the street.
I don't know if it was the thrill of being in an actual Anthro store, or all the bright colored clothes. Maybe it was the scented candles tantalizing my senses or all the smiling sales associates. But I had the overwhelming urge to buy something. The sun was shining, I was shopping with the ocean as my backdrop. No kids to worry about. It was glorious!
I tried on and fell in love with the Bottlegreen Dress. Let's face it, the last thing I need is another pretty dress. I don't go anywhere! I barely have a chance to wear all the dresses I already own. So I blame it on being in Newport Beach surrounded by all those beautiful people and too much sunshine. I feel a bit guilty because of the price tag but I confess I made the purchase.
Sigh, this dress is just lovely. I am wearing a size 6, my usual size, and it fit like a glove. The mint color is so summery and fresh. I am determined to find an occasion to wear this dress.
I also tried on a blazer that had caught my eye online, the Striped Sunglow Blazer.
I'm glad I tried this on in person. It is a lightweight jacket, but still has some structure. I am wearing a size 6, which fit true to size. But something about the stripes and material reminded me of a circus clown or a train conductor. I am happy to report that I was able to resist temptation and did not bring this blazer home with me.
