eBay Find and my OOTD

Every once in a while I look on eBay to see if any of my "gone and lost" Anthro items happen to appear at decent prices. These are mostly items that I missed out on either because I didn't realize I loved them until they were already sold out, or items that were sold out long before I started shopping at Anthropologie almost a year ago. One of those items was the Dwarf Quince cardigan.



I never noticed this cardigan in the store or online until one day my friend was wearing it in the blue motif. It's really cute! When I went searching for it online I realized it also came in a red motif which I loved. I searched for it but came up short. It had already hit sale and apparently many others felt about it the way I did! All well. I added it to my "gone and lost" list and until this week hadn't been able to find one at a price I was willing to pay. Finally one popped up and I grabbed it (yup...once again not sticking to my main wish list...whoops...it's been one of those months). Sorry Elise...we're gonna be cardi twins again (fraternal twins this time--different colors!) It's kind of hard when you have the same taste as your close friends because you always want to grab the same items! We like to copy each other a lot. =) It's fun to have an Anthro shopping buddy!

I've been playing on Polyvore, putting together a few looks with the Dwarf Quince cardigan and here's what I've come up with so far:













I LOVE POLYVORE! Of course the outfits I plan out on Polyvore don't always come out looking perfectly put together when I actually put them on but most of the time it works out pretty good. SO helpful!

The outfit I wore today was one I threw together at the last minute...I pulled out a top I haven't worn for a while from The Limited...it's the only thing I own from that store! It wasn't my favorite outfit ever but they can't all be right?!!



Details:
-Ruffle Front Top-The Limited
-Skinny Jeans-Banana Republic
-Cardigan-Old Navy
-Perry D-Ring Boots-Loft
-Earrings-Nordstrom
-Necklace-Forever 21
-Ring-Target

I've been sitting here watching last Friday's episode of "The View" while I've been typing this and they had Tory Burch on showing some of her new spring line...I LOVED this pair of yellow denim she showed:



How cute would these jeans be with a crisp white blouse and espadrilles! I feel like I'm channeling the 80's a little by lusting after colored denim but really, those are cute! Colored denim will only look good if done right and these look like they're done well. Would you wear colored denim??

Alright, I'm off to bed. Hope you all have a great day!!!

  1. Congratulations on your Ebay score...very exciting!

    I love the TB jeans, too! Well, actually, I love a LOT from her spring line, and I'm hoping some of my wishlist items make it to sale this time around.

    Have a great day! :)

  3. That cardi is so cute, and I love all the different outfits you've come up! I have that same cute top from The Limited - I need to break it out. I like those TB jeans, but probably won't try any colored denim myself...

  4. Great eBay find! I have a love/hate relationship with eBay. I can't believe how high the prices go for some older Anthro items, and 9 times out of 10 I get outbid within the last 30 seconds of the auction. When I do win though, it's such a great feeling!!

  9. Nice cardi as almost all cardis from Anthro are, however they are all really pricey, usually between 80-180$, super highly-priced. Also you should give The Limited a chance. They are a really great store, I personally love them. They are a cross between Ann Taylor, Loft & J.Crew and always have great sales and great coupons. =)
