I think it goes without saying that a lot has transpired through the Anthro blogging community over the last few days so I don't mean to belabor the point. I feel for the fellow bloggers and readers who have been affected and I'm sure that I am not the only one who is surprised, saddened, angered and disheartened.
What I appreciate out of this whole ordeal is that we are taking the time as people to reflect upon ourselves a bit in all ways. To me, though, what occurred cannot be defined as an "Anthro thing" or a "shopping thing" - it was a "scamming thing." I can only hope that not everyone has been completely discouraged from participating in this little corner of style blogging, and that we can to continue to inspire and support each other as a community, and share a bit of ourselves through our love for fashion.

So in an effort to lighten the mood, I was thinking of how I could boldly but in a subtle way mix it up today in the pattern department without looking like I came staggering out from a bad medicine cabinet mix of Cat Lady meets Beverly Hillbilly. Yes, I did leave the house today like this - and mid-day note: flippy light skirt on a breezy day = no esta bueno.
What do you think? Does this work, or should I go "yeehaw"-ing my way into the sunset on my leopard pony?
