I absolutely fell in love with this top when I saw it in the May Anthropologie catalog. The print is gorgeous and the asymmetrical hem is so unique. One of my co-workers who reads my blog asked me if this look was called the side mullet. I laughed and said, "Yes, I suppose it is. Don't you know? Mullet is the new black." I paired the blouse with my Pilcro flares and my super tall heels from Lucky Brand. Unlike it's follicle faux pas counterpart, the side mullet blouse is very chic and elegant. Speaking of follicles, I opted for a messy bun. I thought it fit the vibe of the outfit well and showed off my favorite pair of dangling earrings.
My mission for this photo shoot was to recreate the catalog shot that featured this blouse. It's one of the most stunning pictures I've seen in awhile. However, I didn't have anything remotely close to that fabulous chair that's in the catalog photo. I needed something interesting to sit on, so I decided to try this bench behind our office. I'm sad to say we falied miserably.
So, the big news in Anthroland is the Spring clearance sale tomorrow. I just received an email stating that the stores will be open 1 hour early for Anthro members. Unfortunately, I can't get to a store tomorrow morning, but you best believe I will be scoping things out online. My wishlist is quite lenghty at the moment, so it would be nice to have some of those items go on sale. In particular, I'm really hoping the Mirror-Dotted Maxi and the Brimming Borders Mini-Dress finally get marked down. If not, I'll just keep on waiting. I'm used to waiting at this point. Yes, house, I'm looking at you.
