Field Game Vappu

I'm feeling much better today. I got a good night's sleep, and I'm wearing a cute outfit, so that always helps. I'm wearing my friend Stephanie's Field Game Cardigan knock-off again. I'll be sad to give this back to her tomorrow! I think it looks great with the Vappu dress. Of course, there are not many things that don't look good with this dress. Speaking of dresses, I have a little confession to make. I made a impulse buy last week at the Anthro sale. I ordered the Snowy Egret Shift in a size 8. I had tried it on in a size 6 a couple of months ago and thought is was a little tight, so since it went on sale, I decided to give the 8 a try. I know I'm breaking my agreement with my husband, but I rationalized that I could take it back if I didn't like it and if I did like it I could find a way to keep it. LOL! Desperate times call for desperate measures. Anyway, it took a week to get here, so I finally got it today. I could barely get it on! I told my husband, "Something isn't right here, this fits more like a 4 than an 8." Sure enough, I took it off and looked at the tag - size 4. Bummer! I looked at my receipt, and it says size 8. After I finish typing this, I'm calling customer service to see what my options are. I really hope I can get one in my size, otherwise, I'll always wonder "what if."

  4. Macy's still has a pretty good knockoff in navy that just got marked down to $29.99 also, take an additional 25% off with "macysfriend" code! You deserve your own FG knockoff!

  5. Hahaha, you're so funny with your impulse buys, but I can only encourage your attempts at the Snowy Egret b/c I love mine and it's just too pretty not to own! I hope you find it in your size and what a weird mix-up with the sizing by the way!

  6. Oh no, what a bummer receiving the wrong size. That dress came and went on the EU site in the blink of an eye! It looks lovely, was it as lovely looking in person?

    I do like the Vappu. It is a Maeve dress as it looks the same shape as the In A Twinkling?

  7. OK, silly question but I was wondering...where did you get the rug that is under your table? I know, I know...not fashion related, but I've been looking for one similar for about a year now!

  9. Jen and Cindi: I swear it's the same sweater, just a different label!

    Peggy: My friend is going to look the next time she is in her TJ Maxx. I'll get her to pick you one up if she sees one. I never have any luck at finding anything good in those types of stores, so I just don't bother going. LOL!

    Emily: Thanks for the link and the code! I wish I could get it, but my husband would kill me!

    Dea: It was so weird! Even the little plastic bag the dress was in was labeled size 8. I guess it's bad karma for breaking my agreement with my husband! LOL!

    Louise: It is a Maeve dress and it is the shape as the In a Twinkling, just different fabric.

    Susan: No problem! Glad you like the rug. I got it from Pottery Barn. It's the Color-Bound Seagrass Rug. Here's the link to it: http://www.potterybarn.com/products/color-bound-seagrass-rug/?pkey=cnatural-fiber-rugs

    Sarah: Thanks! I think so too!

  10. Wow! That looks so similar to the actual one. I never would have noticed. You have on one of my fave color combos--navy and yellow.

  11. Oh I was so happy to see my TJ Maxx had re-stocked and I was able to get one! Last time there were only solids and one striped with a hole. Today they even had a grey version too.
