Well my oh my, it sure feels good when someone gives you a compliment, well, I took it as a compliment! Let me back up and start from the beginning. So it’s lunch time and a few of us are lingering with our pizza slices, and one of the girls says to me, “Do you watch Gossip Girl?” And I’m like “Hell yes my dear”, I mean really, who doesn’t, right? 😉 She proceeds to tell me that she watched it a few times with no sound (she has 2 small kids), and would look at the outfits and wonder if anyone dresses like that in real life, or is it just for show. When she saw my outfits these last three days she thought that my looks were inspired by the show and asked if that’s where I get “my look” from. Hmm, that’s an interesting question, so I answered that it’s a little bit of everything, but definitely appreciate and adore the show’s unique sense of style.
So then she paused, and said to me: “Do you know this store, Anthropologie?” And that’s when I burst out laughing and quickly replied, “But of course, I work there!” And then she joined in my laughter, and continued reaffirming that this explains why I dress the way I do – apparently a mix of Gossip Girl and Anthro, which personally, I think are on different wavelengths. At the end she says, “Well, I hope to one day be a fashionista like you”.
And here is the outfit that started this one of a kind conversation:
Blue pullover- Gap
Anthro Crimson Bubbles Skirt
Nude Tights- Gap
Anthro Pink Studio Booties
JCrew Ruffled Jacket
LOVE this skirt, it’s a party waiting to happen! Love the shape, it’s like an upside-down teacup around my bum region. As for the tights, this is my first time wearing/owning nudies, and I have to say, they are a classic.
