Birthday Shopping Part 2: Cheapy Goes to Anthropologie

Last Saturday night Cheapy took me out to celebrate my birthday. I was not privy to the array of evening plans he had cooked up--he likes to surprise me. All he told me was that he thought of a bunch of things he didn't want to do and we were going to do them.

First on the list of things-that-Cheapy-didn't-want-to-do: Shop at Anthropologie. He'd never actually stepped foot in the store, and when we got there he said, "I can see why you like this place. It's filled with a bunch of stuff that looks like all the stuff you have in your closet. And it smells good in here."

I grabbed some things; he grabbed some things; I did a try-on fashion show for Cheapy. We settled on three things we both liked. The first item below, the purple dress, is something I would never have picked up for myself, but the cut is really flattering as is the color. The grey corduroy skirt is stretchy, just the right length, and perfectly neutral. I'll wear the heck out of it this spring. And the white origami jacket is so me. It's got a nipped- in cut and loads of interesting details.

After Anthro, Cheapy took me to see Confessions of a Shopaholic, second on list of things-that-Cheapy-didn't-want-to-do (but he actually enjoyed the movie).

So naturally when I was in DSW today with a handful of percent-off and dollar-off certificates, I couldn't pass up these hot pink Tahari Slingbacks (which, after everything was scanned, I took home for just over $30.) They're such a Rebecca Bloomwood color.

I was also in the vicinity of Anthro earlier today and was planning to drive right by but I was sucked in my a giant SALE sign. I tried on a bunch of tops and bought this tiered one in a beige-y color. It's usually not a color I'd wear but I really liked it on. (The top came in a plummy color as well but I still went with the beige--it felt more springy. And I'm ready for springy.)

Alice, I have the same purple dress! I wore it to interview the Jonas Brothers. It did not enable me to pry the purity rings from their fingers, but I did feel reasonably MILF.

Christian Louboutin high heels
High heels shoes design depends on the individual preferences, so can choose their favorite style. But a pair of high heels "heel" and "bottom", I think is no compromise, must have perfect key position, because that is the key to comfort of influence to walk.
