I liked Soraya's post on thoughts, so here are some of the things that I have been thinking about.  

1.  I'm taking an accounting class.  The first week was great, I totally got everything.  Now that we've begun the second week, I'm starting to get lost.  To me, it makes no sense that to add an asset like cash to an account is considered a debit.  This goes against everything I know.  + cash = credit.  Yes?  No.  Must rewire my brain.

2.  I detest having a kid on my son's soccer team when their parent is the coach.  Why is it that their kid never listens, distracts everyone, and wastes time.  I think it should be illegal to coach your own child's team.  Period.  

3.  One of these days I'd like to get a DVR so I can record the shows that I like to watch but never am able to because they conflict with my whole dinner and put my son to bed routine.  I should buy one, but when it comes down to it I'd rather buy a new Anthro top or a pair of shoes.  =D

4.  Living with your partner/spouse/fiancĂ©  has its benefits and downfalls.  Sharing expenses=good.  Having more laundry to wash=bad.  Getting help with chores=good.  Waiting for him to unplug=bad.  Getting to sleep together every night=good.  Having to share the TV during football season=bad, unless it's the Hogs and then I'll watch.  Having someone around all the time=undecided.  LOL!  No, really I like having him around, but I will say that I do miss those occasional Thursday nights when I could lay on the couch and do whatever I wanted without having to discuss or consult with anyone.  All in all it has been a positive experience, and I should hope so because it has only been a month.

5.  Seriously, how many more reality shows can we make?  Is Jersey Shore really reality?  I hope not.  I live in reality, I watch TV to ESCAPE reality.  Enough with the talent, dancing, surviving and opening suitcase TV crap.  I want the fantasy.

That is all for today.

Multi Purpose Picture Post

OOTD on 8/24

I love wearing new things.  My Expanding Horizons Top and Duo-Patterned Skirt came in the mail on Friday and I wore them to work on Monday.  I think that is one of the reasons I love to shop, because I love new things.  

And a rare outside picture!

My OOTD on 8/25:

The Visionary skirt is one of those pieces that got me back into Anthro and began my obsession with shopping there.  I pull this skirt out often, but put it back just as frequently.  I never really know what to wear with it. You would think with the red, yellow, blue, and black it would be easy to pair something with it. For me, not so much.  I think it is kind of a dressy skirt with the multitude of pleats, but I'm not really "dressy" so I always try to dress it down.  I hope this works.

Some fit pics of the a few sales items I've bought recently:

I love these pants!  The Work Board Trousers are as comfortable as pajama bottoms but can also be easily worn to work.  I purchased these in a size 2 on sale for $9.95 after having already bought the mint colored.  The fit on the trouser is a bit big, however in this style of pant I think roomy looks better. :)

I really wanted to love the Hourglass top from Deletta.  Due to manufacturing errors this top is going back.  I guess they sewed it crooked because it hangs longer on one side than the other, though for the picture I tried to adjust it so you couldn't see it.  This is a cute top and would have been a good purchase if not for the flaw.  For me, this top runs a bit big, I'm typically closer to a S and the XS fit slightly big.  On a happy note, I love the Duo Patterned Skirt!  I bought my typical size 2 and it fits a little big, but it is actually nice not to have something that hugs my waist.

Vintage belts...

I haven't posted much in the past month, maybe even two.  I can't say I have a really good reason for not posting, other than working full time, being a single mom, and becoming student again too!  Perhaps that does give me a good excuse, but I still feel a bit guilty for creating a blog and then having to take a leave of absence. Thank you Soraya for keeping the blog up to date with your posts.  :)

These next pics are dedicated to my mom because she was and has always been a fashionable lady.  A couple months ago she was going through her closet, doing a bit of purging of old things she doesn't wear anymore. She brought me a large bag filled with vintage belts from the 80's.  It was a plethora of awesomeness. Practically all the belts she passed down to me are very much in style right now...belts you might find in an Anthropologie.  I have yet to wear all the belts, but I plan to try to incorporate as many as I can into my wardrobe.

And the whole lot:

Now, where am I going to keep all these belts?!?!

Tuesday, August 2nd Sale Finds!

I've discovered that shopping makes me happy, not that I haven't known this for years, I just love new things and new things love me.  Imagine that.  I was up late last night and I remembered it was time for Anthro's weekly Tuesday sale.  I went browsing on the website with the intention of "just" looking, but I found several items at prices so reasonable that I couldn't pass them up.  Here are my Tuesday Sale finds...

Board Room Trousers in Mint $19.95

Blurred Bands Belt in Red Motif $19.95

I tried this sherbert orange top back in May and I really liked the color and the feel of this top.  You can see the fit pics here.

Swagged Back Tank in Yellow $29.95

In Flight Top in Blue $39.95

On another note, I know it's been awhile since I've posted any outfits or fitting room pics. I've really been lazy in the picture taking department, plus having a half broken camera doesn't help either.  I'll make a mental note to take more pics so all our lovely blog followers can see what I'm wearing.  :)
