A Je Ne Sais Sway Day

Well today has turned itself into a mighty good Anthro sale day - except nothing I wanted went on sale and I had been itching to get some goodies on discount. Oh well, my wallet is safe for another day!

I did end up breaking out my two last new purchases from Anthro (I know, I know, I just bought some stuff from them and I'm still looking for a sale to buy more?) today though, to battle the dreary overcast skies. I hadn't jumped on the Acting Out skirt bandwagon until this iteration, and I can finally see why all you gals were loving it - I was feeling kind of va-va-voom in this skirt even if I don't look it, ha! And wave hello to my first purple shirt - can we say all sorts of love here?



Top: Anthropologie Deletta Je Ne Sais Scarf
Skirt: Anthropologie Cartonnier Alluring Sway (similar online here)
Belt: UO Deena & Ozzy stretch (worn here and here before - similar online here or here)
Tights: UO graphic scroll (similar online here)
Shoes: Franco Sarto suede Gamble mary janes (similar online here or here)

I'll be amongst the ranks of the still-working-a-full-day-tomorrow folks so for all your lovelies departing for your lovely turkey adventures early, have a wonderful long holiday weekend! Appreciate your families! Get loads of sale goodies - it is a good thing to spoil yourself every now and again! And of course calories don't count on Thanksgiving!

  1. Oh my...va va VOOOM!! You look so wonderful, I just love this ensemble. I want to recreate this look.

    How does the shirt fit? I saw Sara review it but I also saw some reviews online saying it's a bit tight.

  7. I know - I was kind of deflated this morning when there was nothing I wanted from the new markdowns - maybe there will be more tomorrow? LOVE that pretty purple on you - I see lots more where that color came from ;)

  12. I wasn't sure if this top could be worn with skirts or not, but I'm so glad you proved that it can!

  15. Love this outfit, Lisa! I've been on a purple streak lately too and this top is just the right shade of purple. I love how the print of the tights go well with the top's collar. Gorgeous! Happy Thanksgiving!

  16. Thanks, Cindi! I think Deletta's tops are generally smaller overall and I am usually between a XS/S in Anthro so I got this in a S. I don't think this top fits too small per se, but the material is awfully clingy!

    Louise - aw no, not the purple yet? I liked the ivory/beige color too but the material is kind of sheer - with the purple there are not problems with seeing through.

    Jan - I doubt there will be more sale items tomorrow but I would sure like to see some more myself, especially items from my wishlist!

    Sara - Seeing how great you looked in the top reminded me (I must have a short term memory!) that I needed to break mine out too!

    Melissa - You and I can commiserate together at our respective offices! At least we get a Thanksgiving weekend!

  19. As everyone else is saying, you DO look va-va-voom indeed. I can see why you love this shirt as much as you do. The details are absolutely gorgeous, and the deep elderberry color looks fabulous on you!

  20. Hey Lisa!! Let's just say calories just don't count from this day forward - it's almost December and that means Christmas everything..hehe
    Oh goodness, you look totally va-va voom - I hope you know that! Love everything about your outfit. I love how it's fitted, but not indecently tight and awkward. Your facial expressions are always super cute!

  25. Love the Anthro Scarf Shirt! I love a Pencil skirt anyday. Purple is all shades of right for you Lisa. Even if you don't admit it, you do look Va-Va-Voom. The outfit leaves you looking smooth all over. Very dramatic.

  26. I really like the subtle texture on your tights, the ruffles on your blouse and the rouching on your skirt. Ahh, such pretty details!
