I managed to curb my Anthropologie compulsion (for now) at least. Instead, I dropped $100 at the Target on a nice cotton tank-dress, black leggings, some dishwasher detergent, and a couple new bras. YAY! Much more useable and financially responsible stuff.
I'm still looking at those sandals though. Generally, I wear birkenstocks throughout the entirety of summer ... so it's probably time for a change.... sigh.
And I know this post is probably a bit of the old "kicking the dead horse of Jane Austen" ... but .... I just happened to watch the 2005 version on TV last night. I think it was on E! or something.
Anyways. I think I need to get a few clothing pieces that are regency-inspired. I ESPECIALLY love the sort of long sweat/jacket in the bottom left picture. LOVE it.
In fact, I think I need to start modeling my entire wardrobe around movie roles Keira Knightley has played. Am I spelling her name right? Whatever.
Here she is in "Edge of Love" with AWESOME Wellington boots and floral skirt..... and also with a whichgoose-inspired hair piece! Then to the right ... I think that's from "Atonement" --- another great movie.
Here's my hand at making something a bit more on the proper Austen side of things ... kind of fun, eh? :)
