Haircut, Dress-Up, and The Limited Fitting Room

My willingness to dress up on any occassion was proven once again when this morning at 8:30 I’m standing in line at the Aveda Institute among a sea of women attired in sweaters and jeans. Of course it makes sense- it’s too early in the morning, plus the weekend hours, so there’s no reason to get all fancy. Except that I don’t follow that logic, and will pull out tights and a skirt regardless of what’s going on. And so I got a haircut and really like it. It was only an inch and a half, but I feel lighter in the….

I love this skirt, and can’t just save it for special occassions, well, unless you count a Saturday morning at Aveda a special occassion then yes, we’re right on track here! It’s all bubbly and bright, cheers me right up.

Besides getting my hair did, I wondered over to The Limited, which is a store that I hadn’t been to in years. I was inspired by goldenmeans and caffeinerd to check out the selections they had out for spring, and I was not disappointed. There were a lot of bright colors, mixed in with some drabby, dark office apparel, but the majority of the stuff looked like spring was in full bloom! I have to say that my main reason was to check out this little number, and after caffeinerd sent me some very friendly coupons, I had even more of a desire to go. And the results are good, really good!

I just LOVE this dress, especially, or specifically, because it reminds me of the Anthro Caranday dress, and since I haven’t been able to find it for the longest time, this is the best substitute I could ever find. I’m wearing a 0 here so fits pretty true to size. It has a cotton lining which I find fabulous, especially during the summer in case you happen to sweat! It’s very light on and just really comfortable. I also like the length, because it can be worn to more serious events and you don’t have to keep pulling down.

Next, I tried on the wide pocket pencil skirt just on a whim, mainly because the colors drew me in. I tried a 0 in these as well and fit is pretty good. Although it’s a pencil skirt, I didn’t find it too revealing, confining, or stiff. It’s made of cotton so it’s soft and easy to take care of. Beware of the images below: might see a bit of skin due to my short top, to be explained later. I tried both colors: yellow and cinnabar orange!

And finally, my surprise item, the frog closure cardigan, which is a bit reminiscent of the clinging blossoms cardigan from Anthro, and $30 cheaper. I loved the details on the brocades and the brass buttons were really cute. I had the XS on.

Just for the record, it is NEVER okay to leave the dressing room looking like this!! Overall, found a couple of things that were really cute and helped me think about spring clothes even more. Also want to mention that right now they have some really awesome coupons (example $30 off a dress) so if you want a copy, email and I’ll send it to you. I don’t know when I’d go back to The Limited again, but it was fun while it lasted. Any of you had experiences good/bad with this store?
And sorry again for all the belly shots (no cami present)!
