After-hours party at anthropologie!!!!!!!

I had a wonderful time last night at an after-hours party at my local anthropologie. My friend Alicia, from likelybadger, hosted/organized the event. I arrived to a lovely set up of champagne, cupcakes, and other goodies. Alicia and one of the anthro SA's had a rack of outfits picked out to showcase. I really liked the way they had the outfits organized. They had a few different categories outlined (modern, 70's, and 60's) and a few outfits for each category to show as examples. After that, we all walked around the store and picked out things to try on. Alicia, along with a few SA's, were there to help pick out outfits, give suggestions, offer styling tips, etc. I had a blast! I also had the chance to meet Farmer Jo! How exciting!


This is what I wore to the event. All of the full-body shots were super blurry, so this is the best I could do. You get the point though:) I love the marine mural dress (even in winter)!

I tried on quite a few beautiful things at the party. This top (the Eastpoint Garden Top) was one of my favorites. The color is gorgeous! Definitely size down (I sized down 2 sizes).

I loved it so much, I wore it today!

After trying on so many gorgeous items last night, these two are now at the very top of my wishlist: The Back Porch Blouse and the Take Action Dress.

Happy Friday!


  1. The Anthro party sounds like so much fun! Looks like you came away with a great new top, too!! I've stayed away from my local Anthro for a couple weeks now, but I think I need to go check out these new arrivals!

  2. What?! An Anthro party in Portland? While I was sitting at home with Netflix? Gah!

    Of course, I've never worn anything from Anthro, but I love to go there and walk around!

  3. Hi Kristin, I love your top! And I really like your choice of the Take Action Dress. It's one of my Wish listed items too. I Purchased the Springing Season Blouse and now I'm trying to find something to wear it with. It's nice that you got to go to that event. Looks like it was a blast.

  4. Kelly - it was a blast! This was my first trip to anthro in about a month. Nothing was really catching my eye in January, but the new Feb releases seem to be a bit more exciting.

    Linda - Bummer:( I will invite you next time! Yes, it is fun to just walk around and look at all of the beautiful things.

    Gabby - Thanks! I saw the Springing Season blouse at the store. It looks really nice and I love the texture. Which color did you get?

  5. Hi Kristin, what a lovely top. I heart the sunny color on you. Can't believe you got to meet Farmer Jo. How fun! And food at Anthro?!? What could be better :)
    p/s - I hope you'll end up getting the Take Action dress. It's too good to pass up.

  6. Thanks, Lisa! It was so fun and the cupcakes were yummy! I haven't been able to stop thinking about the Take Action dress, so I'm sure it will find a home with me soon:)

  7. I wish I could have gone and met both you and Alicia (I read her blog too!). You and I are dress twins, I have the marine mural dress too, sitting in my closet.

  8. That was a great party and it was so fun to meet you too. I loved the dress you wore that night!

  9. Andriea - I really hope you can make it to the next one!

    Farmer Jo - Thanks, and yes it was a great party:)
