The frequency of Anthro purchases has been a bit much recently, and large in quantity as well. I ordered both colors in the rah-rah rumba skirt for example, because I like them both so much and couldn’t decide which one to stick with. Recently I’ve been spending more time thinking about my choices in buying and am having difficulty applying the theory of buying only what I truly love. Geez, I love a lot you guys and it’s easy for me to create reasons as to why I want what I want! So I decided to explore this further, and went to the mother blog of all fashion blogs (in my humble opinion): the sartorialist. I stumbled upon it 8 months after Scott Schuman began photographing people on the streets of New York and he has impeccable taste in the people he documents. Today I started looking at his earlier posts and the outfits captured are always so timeless. Whether they were photographed in 2005 or 2009 you really can’t tell the difference because it’s about taste, rather than what’s ‘in style’. It’s about current vs. classic, modern vs. momentarily, and that was my answer. For me it has to be about finding pieces that transcend through time and can be incorporated at different stages in my life but still represent the real me. Although this is simply about material things, I find that clothes can really alter my mood, the way I view my surroundings, and a reflection of how I want to present myself. I love taking the time in putting things together (usually) and creating outfits that work for me and my comfort level.
So when the latest package arrived in the mail, this little yellow cutie was all folded up, waiting to unwind! I’m happy that I waited to buy it on sale; makes it that much more desireable. Simple was for the best today because I believe we broke 100 flippin degrees! Is it fall yet?
