I usually try and restrain myself to just buying things on sale from Anthropologie, watching for a couple of months to see if my love wanes or is replaced by another. At which point it usually gets a convenient markdown! But every so often something comes along that you just want to wear and enjoy while it is in season. Such is the Tulipa skirt- a richly decorated piece just begging to be worn with fall colours and earthy tights and boots. I picked this up in September, and have had only a couple of chances to wear it since. I guess I missed the boot part, but it is most definitely now cold enough for boots, so there's tomorrow's challenge!
I'm perhaps not showing this piece off to its best- I really miss taking photos outdoors in natural light, and in both cases I think I came home and vegged out on the couch for awhile before taking a couple of snaps, so the skirt is a little wrinkled. It's a substantial fabric with a good amount of stiffness/structure, and I love that the embroidery wraps around, without cutting off at the seam. Ah, I love a good statement skirt. Classic Anthropologie!

And hey, how about a couple of pretty pictures from the new store in town- I love the way they cleverly mix piles of sweaters and skirts in with decorative cups and things. sigh. So now I know what teacup will best accessorize with my new cardigan...
|oops- among these is what is now my own sweater. I love this piece!|
|ah, and among these is what is also now my own Jacquard Dot skirt! Oops!|
