OOTD & Rock Bottom Remainders

Sorry for such a late night post. I spent most of the night watching the Rock Bottom Remainders Benefit Concert, and eating yummy Korean food in Koreatown.

Here is my OOTD. A complete stranger on the street complimented me on my coat as I was walking past her. Definitely made my day.

OOTD and Review of Perfection!


Custom Fascinator by Giant Dwarf on etsy

Made the excuse to go to Anthro today after a really harsh time at work. Decided to try on the dress that has been mocking me. I have to say that the dress itself is perfection.

I tried on a size 2 because someone left a review on the Anthro website that they fit in a 2, and they are close to my size. Close, but no cigar. I definitely need to try a size 4.

You can't really tell from the picture because my hair is obstructing it, but the back of this dress rode up my neck pretty far, which I take as a sign that it's too small in the back. Unfortunately, the Anthro store at Rock Ctr ran out of sizes other than 2 and 10.

I also stopped into the Aldo store, and it appears that the Marrs boots are sold out :-(  I might invest in the smaller version though, since I don't own any brown boots.

Damn you shopping bug!

I haven't had a lot of trouble resisting the urge to shop for large items [clothes, shoes] since the accessories I've gotten [scarves, belts] have really helped revitalize my closet. It also helps to leave half my wardrobe with Tazy so I always feel like I have new pieces in my closet when I swap things with her.

But I'm starting to desparately need shoes.

I destroyed all of my flats except my one pair.
Claudette Slingbacks

And my poor cowboy boots that I've always relied on are in need of repair. Which makes me want to break my no spending rule to buy these:

And to further my sudden shopping bug infection ... I can't stop looking at this:


Woe is me! HELP!

So Happy It's Over

Saturday night's crazy wedding reception had its highs and lows. I'm just so glad it's over, and I can get back to real life and enjoying married life.
