Rain Clouds.

Again, here is Henry (also known as Hen Pen). I bought him this black raincloud t shirt from the Little Bean shop. It suits him quite well.
Audra has notified me that he has worn it every day since I gave it to him. Today he had a different t shirt on, noticed this one being folded from the dryer, and promptly changed back into it.

I love him.

Look for Less: Kicking Around

Let's be honest. We don't live in a dream world where we can buy this whole outfit for a mere $1,204 not including taxes and shipping. We live in a reality where we are forced to find alternatives, that can be just as satisfying and cute no matter what anyone says.

I got a humorous email from Maria yesterday that said "Even if I had the money, I'd rather buy a plane ticket to Dallas rather than those boots!"

So I thought..why not come up with some alternatives? I perused Modcloth and found some cuties for dresses. For 1/4 of the price!! Can you believe it? Obviously not an exact match, but these have the same "feel" of the Anthro look at a fraction of the cost.

I particularly love this one..and the name!!
Here are some Target boots I found for less than 1/8 of the price!!! I do think that spending between $100-150 on boots is very conservative, so feel free to hit up Steve Madden, DSW, or Zappos..
Some Modcloth coats were reminiscent to the plaid one on the less than 1/3 of the cost!

So let's see here...if we total up the most expensive options on this list...we get $243...then go purchase your Anthro head wrap and tights for another $50...not even $300 for the whole look when it was $1,204 for the Anthropologie look!!! What's that you say? Oh I know, I was thinking the same. Now you have extra money for other things...such as food, shelter, and rent...just kidding. I was thinking more about accessories (scarves anyone?), cupcakes, and music.

Kicking Around

Thank you Anthropologie for sharing this magnificently gorgeous outfit with me called "Kicking Around".

The truth? I can afford the tights and the head wrap. fml.

Why do you show me outfits I cannot afford? Can we have a less expensive option as well? Pleeeeeeeeease? I love cool weather, and your it would be great. Thanks.

the Best Balinese Banquet

This weekend was a blast. My cousins and sisters are so much fun to hang out with. On Saturday, we all pitched in to make a Balinese banquet for Erica, since she and Evan will spent a month there on honeymoon.

Buddha sat at one end of the table and the wine pairings at the other :)
Cute candle lanterns, flowers by Virginia, pretty patterns, and menu fans.

The lake was misting over as the sun set!
