I have no idea what the original Anthro name for this skirt was; I want to say it had the word "peach" or "ripe" in the title. My typically fruitful (har har) Google-Fu failed me, but maybe one of you remembers this lovely? I actually spotted this skirt at the Market Street store while vacationing in San Francisco. Immediately I thought that it would be perfect for a Georgia peach like me! Since CLC skirts run so darn small, and I was on the other coast, there were plenty for me to choose from. It did help that it was a *vacation* purchase and therefore somehow didn't count as seriously.
I feel compelled to wear something cute and put together whenever I go visit my Anthro girls at the mall. Yes, I stopped by my local Anthropologie again. I couldn't sleep last night, and when I was up really early and saw all of the buzz about the sale today, I had to scoot over there as doors opened.
I didn't go bananas--I got a price adjustment for my Easter top and gave the Reed Shirtdress another spin in the plaid. It worked for me this time around, and for less than what I paid for the first one (especially after the adjustment!), I couldn't say no.
Did you get anything from this week's Anthro markdowns? Sometimes I feel like I seem totally crazy hanging around at opening for "doorbusters." Oh well, I enjoy the chase! But really, I was the only one in line waiting to run inside and grab a cheap toaster oven/shirtdress this morning. And so it is.
