Awesome Anthro Jackets and Sale Finds
I perused the gorgeous Santa Barbara store Labor day Thursday and found some good sale items. This long sleeve maroon tissue tee was trying to achieve mediocrity, so I had to leave it behind.
Ooh!!I finally tried on the Terrace House jacket $138.00 which reminds me of some other jackets Tabitha has done in the past. See the brown Tabitha jacket in this earlier post.
They do such a beautiful job of tailoring with the details around the collar.
ARGH! Stop it, Tabitha!! Stop making awesome things that are impossible not to buy!
Another reluctant walk away--since I have no idea if it will fit later on. You know, when I lose 50 lbs. After gaining 80.
Then, the tour de force.
Boo, but I cannot find this jacket for the life of me on their site.
But I LOVED it. The clever ruffle around the edge--which becomes a functional and cozy pocket. And the subtle Edwardian collar. Oh! I literally walked up to the checkout counter with the jacket still on. Unable to part with it.
I had forgotten my wallet back at the hotel where Chris and I had stayed. So I had to parade around in front of him to seek his financial patronage while batting my eyes and trying to appear vulnerable and cold, while carrying his child. Who will not stop kicking me in the gut.
Long story short. He loved it. I tried on the black. It's just as cute and maybe more versatile, given my own wardrobe palette.
I'm wearing the jacket right now, as I'm typing. LOVE IT.
A little steep, but c'mon. So stinkin' cute. And that ruffle is worth its weight in Anthro gift cards.
Ok. More coming later. I have to go read Tim Gunn's new book "Life's Little Lessons for Making it Work" now. Don't laugh.
