I still remember just how special it was for me to have made my very first Anthropologie purchase ever. I was just starting high school and you know, figuring out those weird stages of growing up. Having graduated from Abercombie and Hollister in high school, I needed something to bridge that gap. Honestly, Anthropologie might have been a bit beyond me, but we’re still wearing it into our late 20’s so I think it has aged well.
Anthropologie introducing petite sizes years back was huge for me. I’m glad to be celebrating their latest 120-piece plus size collection. The new line, called APlus, will feature sizes ranging from 16W – 26W.
“It’s a joy to see this collection come to life,” says specialty sizes buyer Aly Kauffman, “and it’s an assortment that we look forward to growing as our customer shares her wants and needs.”
The collection launched yesterday and is available online and in 10 retail stores across the country. Below are a few of my favorite pieces!
Many of you know that red is not a color that I gravitate towards. I generally find it to be a little bit loud and therefore you won’t find it often on the blog or in my closet. For some reason though, Friday has got me feeling all of the red. Here it is in two different ways, but with similar elements like the lace or the sheerness. Which look would you prefer to rock?
The combination of San Francisco’s spring-like weather and day light savings is everything. I don’t want to say that it’s an instant mood upgrade, but it basically is. The latest Stan Smith collection is the epitome of spring. I never thought I needed a pair of these in “Clear Orange”, but now I absolutely do. You can also find this style in “Easy Yellow,” “Core Black,” and “Footwear White.” Once you purchase one, you might as well get the whole set.
Think we can keep Wedding Mondays going regularly again? I’m headed to my first one of the year at the end of the month and I’ve got weddings on the brain. It looks like it might be a light year for me, which just means that I’ve got more love to share at the two that I’m attending. Jen and Jeremy’s wedding video is a breath of fresh air. I queued up more than a handful yesterday and this was the first one right out of the gate. It’s certainly not like any other wedding video we’ve seen and it was elegant and simple in its own way.
When it comes to beauty trends, I wouldn’t say that I’m at the forefront of it all. I’m more of an admirer from afar and by afar, I mean just writing about them on Yow Yow! Ready-to-wear collections are the place to catch them all. This year, Giambattista Valli caught my eye and I haven’t stopped thinking about these foiled lashes since. They’re not so much for every day wear, but can you just imagine donning these for an icy holiday party look? We’re pinning this to our Pinterest boards.
The look was created by M.A.C. makeup artist Val Garland. To accentuate the foiled lashes further, Val used black liner and white liner above the crease.
We’ve basically just adored Brie Larson since she starred on “Raising Dad.” She has since blown up and is now, the first solo-female superhero to be in a Marvel film as Captain Marvel! The film was just realized on Friday (International Women’s Day) no less and is slated to kill it at the box office. In the past, we’ve shared a lot about Brie’s Red Carpet looks. Of course, her presence in the film industry goes far beyond that. She’s extremely talented, a role model to many, and an example for all of us as exemplified by this Stylist interview.
If you’ve got some time, take a read! It’s a fast one, but well worth it.
We’ve had a hearty dose of Fashion Week posts at the start of the year! If any of you have been waiting for this to be over, you’ve got your wish. We’re capping off Fashion Week Fall 2019 RTW with this roundup of fashionable attendees for Chanel. Rest assured, we’ll press pause until Resort season.
