I heart: Dear Creatures


I feel like such a summer scout in this top!


The most adorable skirt.

After seeing the Dear Creatures brand featured around the blogosphere, I couldn't help but be immediately drawn to the whimsical and cheery designs. The brand really captures this sense of optimism that, for me, is reminiscent of long bike rides, watermelons, and unending days of sun.

And shopping addict that I am, I usually have a dozen or so daily sample sale e-mails to trudge through around lunch each day. But how tickled was I when billion dollar babes sent me an e-mail saying that they were going to have a Dear Creatures blowout?!

I let myself a small shopping concession last month and bought this Scout blouse. I wanted a summery nautical top that was tailored to fit me. Not only that, I thought it looked familiar. Then I realized that Anthro is carrying the same top in the chambray color! If anyone was on the fence, it's a very flattering fit--surprisingly fitted and not at all boxy.

I also picked up this pencil skirt from the sale, but unlike the top, it sadly doesn't fit. I bought both in an XS. The top is perfect, but I couldn't zip the skirt up comfortably. Yikes! I'm debating what to do with it. It's so durn cute! I'm hoping that my gym time and some Spanx will eventually be enough to wiggle into it.

Unfortunately it was way too cold to wear my little sailor top today. I can't wait till it is warm enough! The red plimsoll sneakers and crisp, dark jeans will be my spring staples.

Anthropologie is also carrying one other piece by this label right now, which is even more adorable. I hope that there are some left (and maybe on sale!) by the time Easter rolls around so I can get her too.

Unfortunately the sale is closed that I purchased my Dear Creatures clothes from, but Atlantans can pick up a few selections at Jac (quick while they still have b&m hours!), and everyone else can find these yummy pieces online at some of my favorite web retailers:

Do you have anything new or special you're saving up for spring? I can't wait to wear half of my wardrobe!


  1. When I saw your top, I immediately thought of the Anthro top! I may like the version you have on better! I love the skirt! I hope you can find a way to make it work. It would look so cute on you!

  2. Tien and trishie--I looooove the skirt. From what I can tell, however, it is made for a small child. (Seriously, that small!) I'm debating whether I want to fit into the skirt or continue my current diet of whatever-I-want.

  3. your style is so cute!!! Great outfit!!

  4. I love that top on you. And the ruffles on that skirt are too cute for words.
    I'm really looking forward to spring (not quite summer though ... mosquitos) and I've already started stocking up - skirts and wedge sandals and cute tops. Nice to know it's not just me.

  5. OMG I am sooo in love with Dear Creatures! They have a dress this season called the "Cherbourg Dress" (As in, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) that is making me die. The scout top is incredible- I just wish I had heard of this sale :(

  6. Maria--I've found that usually when one site does a sale for a brand, the others eventually follow suit! I'm on 6-8 different sites so eventually it should pop up! And if nothing else, the Atlanta boutique I linked to has one top for half off.

  7. That sailor top is sooo cute!! I love the little wings on the collar! And that skirt is fab! I love the ruffles at the top. I can't wait to see it on you!

    For me, I want to save up for a classic tan trench coat. That would make me so happy.

    Don't forget to enter to win a tankini of your choice!

  8. That top is cuuuute! :D I love Dear Creatures, I wish I could afford to buy all of their clothes for spring!


Bonjour y'all! Thanks for stopping by.
