black is beautiful at anthro

hello!! i've been a baaaad little blogger. yes, that's said just like the cartoon character. here are the pictures i mentioned before in my last post. whenever i see images like this, i feel represented by anthropologie. It's nice to feel included. Normal. The quotidian is a good feeling. I love this store and they make me feel as though they CREATE clothes with me in mind, and these pictures are my type of aesthetic.

Fourth of July is almost here!!! mwhahaha!!

feeling like a starburst

HI! This was my outfit for Tuesday and I developed this outfit some time ago. I was so excited to wear it to work because this color is actually one of my very favorites to wear. Not just PINK but fuchsia, really fruity looking - FUN and rich.

My week is going well. What is bothering me though is Kenzie's post and I am wondering if I should be more of a socially conscious shopper. Why? Because that's one of the things that i love about anthro. I am no longer persuaded that ANTHRO targets a certain race, a certain CLASS, yes, that's undeniable, but no longer a certain RACE of people. I have seen darker complected women of color, women with natural textured hair - kinky and beautiful on their website. That makes my heart leap! I always right click and save these pictures to my home desktop as proof. Black is beautiful to ANTHRO, even women with darker skin and kinky hair! Marvelous! I will upload some of them in my nest post. I'll see you Friday.

Frannie and Me!

Ah, i love you 'Frannie Camisole'. Natasha's wearing it and she looks great! But i love this corset so much because I originally bought it to wear with the sanpedro skirt, but it looks great with everything! I feel so mature and beautiful in it. My bf even complimented that I appeared "wifely" in this shirt. I wore it out and about this weekend and he really loved it.

I do hope that you enjoyed your weekend. My week started off with a great Monday. Summer is finally here!

These shots were taken with his HTC evo. We were shopping in Macy's, he needed some new suits and ties for work. I didn't buy this hat , but oh I was thinking about it.

One more pic from my imac: maybe i should start using my 5D for pics. But, *sigh* that's so much work!

Eye Candy Anthro

This idea was originally formulated by Jessica of Delicatseen. I love her blog for many reasons, and this was a feature that i thoroughly enjoyed. I am a wedding photographer, and I am usually perusing different websites and blogs and i often come across people who are arrayed in anthro. They usually wear them for their engagement sessions. I always want to share these images, esp when these photos are as great as the ones i discovered today. So i am starting a new feature on my blog that i thoroughly enjoy. I will call it 'eye candy anthro' or perhaps 'arrayed in anthro'.

What do you think?

For today s' feature, the prospective bride is wearing the: Across The Land Dress . The black version that she's wearing is sold out online.

Please check out Brooke Images for more pics:
Here is the green version.

the lust of the eye: rachel roy

Today I had an interviewee who came in, in a GORGEOUS Rachel Roy dress. It was so chic! The floral print was so amazing that it just slapped my boring day in the face and woke me up. I have always loved the designer RACHEL ROY. I became aware of her because of our first lady Mrs. O, loves her style and always looks great in her pieces. So I have become entirely smitten myself.

My co-worker and I spent our lunches obsessing over her sale items, and also her resort 2012.

I almost wen into epileptic shock when i viewed her resort collection. I would wear these pieces if I could afford it.
Here are some of the sale pieces that are still entirely out of my budget, but would fit my lifestyle and ideal chic self.

I would rock this skirt out so HARD! Floral, aqua and pencil???? *swoon*

end of day and 'man down'

Well, Rihanna’s song man down has been generating a lot of buzz lately. Understandably so. The video Is very complex. It was a little hard to watch for me. But guess what, I love the song. I know that I love It because It's so REGGAE and I am Jamaican, but I also love It because they just did an overall fantastic job with modernizing such an old and classic sound.

Here I am wearing the: ScalInata Top, ShIftIng Buttons SkIrt and an anthro belt.
Necklace I bought from MACY'S and the shoes are my BCBG score from last year. My most expensive shoe purchase, ever!

& and then some

Yesterday was rather cheerful and cheery. I wore white, and one of my fave sweaters, the Whirl & Wind Cardigan. I stalked this sweater for a really long time and I wanted it in both white and yellow, but the yellow was not as exciting as the white. Here I am wearing it with an anthro necklace. Thanks victoria’s secret for the extra help, ~_^. I really needed it.

So it’s a HOT HOT HOT one today in Philadelphia. As in dragon’s breath hot! But I am safely hidden away in my office and I won’t be experiencing this heat until after 4:30 pm today. I don’t really mind the heat you know, I grew up in a very warm climate, it’s the humidity that really gets us. The city would be totally fine if the humidity wasn’t so unbearable.

Ann taylor Skirt
Anthro earrings, necklace, sweater.

Thank you and enjoy!

Resort 2012: Carolina Herrera

My very cruel friend BOLA of Onada Photography posted on her fashion blog these beauties and I am so upset! She has over throwm my content. There is no way in God's green earth I can EVER afford these, *heavy sigh*, but i still lust. My wanting is greater than my having. Ms Herrera really hurt me with these. I can't believe how beautiful and how lovely and feminine, and ...just it's a cherry blossom OVER LOAD for me!!!

The only thing i can do is rock my 24K Myosotis Dress in honor of them both! oi ve.


Good Morning! I usually try and take pics during the day, but i hardly if ever have time to post them. Here I am in a button down H&M blouse. Ann taylor skirt, one of my faves, the shape is so exquisite! ANthro belt and anthro earrings.
The necklace was designed by Fialata's.

So yesterday was interesting because I didn't know exactly what to wear or how i felt. But i knew i had to be in button down because i was wearing that ann taylor skirt. It worked out quite all right.

Today will be a HOT one in Philadelphia! Heat wave! Tomorrow is 98 degrees!
Have a great Wednesday! Stay cool.

Sorry ladies and gents! I forgot to post my ootda yesterday. So you'll get a double feature today! exciting eh? Anyway, i feel madly in love with this top when i first saw it in my local anthro store. for a small busted woman like myself, it gives the illusion of an ample and perky bosom. I feel so flirtatious and cute in this top. when it originally debuted, i said to myself "wait, wait till it get marked down, because most people WILL not feel the same way you do". that is about the floral and stripes.

but now that floral and stripes are IN, if this were around this year, i don't thin i would've gotten it for $19.00 from the original $98.00 :-).

Anthro pants as well. They run a bit big in the thighs and length, but fit the bum quite nicely. thank you.

My san pedro skirts did get a cut, but I think I can hang in there for maybe a third cut on each! *bone chilling cackle*

pick yourself up

Today was really great. Work wasn't very stressful and even though i didn't get to finish all I had to do i still left un-stressed. I really love my job and my office because there is no stress. I control so much of my space and i won't give that up. I get to dress up in everything i want and the fashion is appreciated and even lauded. ah, a girls dream.

I love this outfit. i wore this the other night when i went out with my babes and thought i'd share it. i forgot to take pics of what i wore today, but here are a few others from the past couple of days.

and guess what?? i saw 'thirteen pounds' this evening in center city Philadelphia! she was there shopping and she looked even more radiant in person. i wish i had her skin tone!!

enjoy and thanks.

sorry about the weird angle, these were taken with my imac's camera. i am decked out in complete anthro. even the earrings. mac eye shadow and make up.

here are the days previous:

Ah, Anthro, you promised this major mark down and all i bought were the two caprice blouses. I don't regret it, they are on their way to me from Idaho. But i thought there were going to be MAJOR mark downs. I am still watching the Araca Pencil Skirt and I will have it!!!
