Happily enough, Nalynne and company came out for the week and we found time to go to Anthro. Three days in a row. Two different stores. One battered and beaten credit card.
Anyway, we spent just as much time loving the window displays as the clothes. Especially at the El Segundo store, where we saw THIS AWESOME DRESS.
She's wearing an Anthro Clinton Trench and Timberland boots and I forget what else underneath. But I guarantee she is wearing something--no flashers in this family.
But what is that sparkling red and black item in her right hand?
A Kate Spade bag, which I panted heavily over all weekend. See close-up here.
Anywho, we loved the tops that were obviously sewn. And we were to find, were hand dyed. And probably better constructed than most items I've bought at Forever 21. No offense, F21.
we stumbled upon the visual team for the store. And when we asked who had done the wedding dress in the window, we discovered it was Connor.
What a catch! He is obviously talented, can sew, can make rope chandeliers, and is verrry easy on the eyes.
The terms "genius!" and "amazing!" were thrown about and if I hadn't been holding Avery in a sling, he might have run away from the crazy lady (finding that somehow having the baby makes me less physically threatening).
Finally, when I stood around awkwardly for a very very long time, he sighed and agreed to let me take his picture next to the dress. Along with Tracy, who also apparently worked on the dress, but also was necessary for moral support.
Crazy swimfan behavior wins again.
