  16. Hi Lisa,

    I love this installment. And I am so very grateful that you visit my blog as often as you do.

    Respect the Shoes is my favorite blog. And you are my favorite Blogger.

    I almost pulled the trigger on Anthro's Babergh Dress today. I finally decided the fit issues were too confusing to risk tying up $200 while waiting for a Return Credit

    So I ordered something bigger and better. Something I often do when I am faced with disappointment.

    I also posted the my first outfit styling for the Graphical Dress.

    Thanks for the fun Blog Stuff.

    Love, Laura

  17. Thanks for your comments, ladies! Glad you're enjoying this peek into some other people's blogs - there are so many cool ones out there!

    Laura - aw, thanks so much. I so appreciate you (and everyone else too!) taking the time to visit and read my little blog - it is really nice to get to know all the great gals I am meeting in blogland.

    I can't wait to see you in your Coral and Phlox coat! That is one of the items that I consider an Anthro collector's piece, because it is so much more than just a ruffly tee or striped skirt.

  18. I'm too chicken for a tattoo right now and I'm scared of birds, but that photo has me dying for a feather tat!

  19. Hiiii....

    Nice shoes. Here are some more shoes online for you. I like this. The ugg shoes are very much popular in USA. I rectly buy 5pairs of Ugg shoes from USA big shopping mall. There are no hidden costs and also no shipping charges included into it.
