I apologize. I had full intentions on posting right after the Fashion Show but sometimes you get in a rut. To pick up from the Anthropologie Fashion I have some try-ons.

The store was pretty busy, of course, after the Fashion Show so I quickly walked the store to find some things to try on.

~ Embroidered Shorts, size 8 ~
I think these are by Elevenses but I didn’t grab a pic of the inside tag. These are high-waisted and look to have about a 4 to 5-inch inseam. I liked the fit of these on until I started moving around. The waist kept shifting and the hem/inseam of the shorts kept riding up. I don’t want to have to fidget with my shorts all day. Though I loved the embroidery and colors of the shorts they are a pass. (As soon as I found out what these are I’ll update with a link.)
Pretty pops of neon pink throughout.
I loved these linen pants. I think it was not only the color but the embroidery along the side. Though they are crops the size 29 hit me right at the floor. These are a relaxed fit and though I might be able to fit into a 28, I like the relaxed look of the 29s. If I were to get these, I’d have to probably get them hemmed to be cropped. There is a button holding up the hem so that would have to go, along with the strap. Usually you see this on shirts. 
I saw Ivory and Wine in-store and there is also Green showing up online. They Grey is my favorite color of the four.
Lynden Chambray Tank, White, Medium ~

Online there is only the light denim color but I did find White in-store. I wanted something neutral to try on with the bottoms I grabbed and chose this tank. It’s not really a favorite of mine. The fit is ok but it just kind of hung there. It definitely needs a cardigan or pretty jewelry to liven it up. The Medium is a good fit but I think I could size to a Small to deal with the gaping at the arms.

~ Maeve Fluttered Maya Blouse, Neutral Motif, size 8 ~
I love the look of the flowy-ness of this blouse. It comes in both solids and several print options. The size 8 fit well but I think I could size down to a Petite or a size 6. I do like how the flutter-sleeve covers my upper arms but overall, I think I can do better. I have added it to my wishlist hoping to catch it on sale.

And what I wore to the Fashion Show. The Nimbin Peasant Blouse was in the 2013 Fashion Show and it was the one item I bought that day. I’ve worn it several times but have never posted a Que Bella. The shorts are the J Crew Pleated Structured Short from a few years ago. {Factory} The shoes are from Anthropologie last year, the Terah Heels. They are perfect for transitioning into Spring with an open-toe but not fully a sandal.

Have a Great Day! I have a lot of goodies to review over the next few days! Hope you come back by!

Last Friday night had me getting out of the house for a cousin’s birthday party. The theme was 70s and we were encouraged to dress up. Well, talk about a fashion conundrum! The 70s had so many styles from continuing the hippie trend from the 60s to jumpsuits to disco fashion (polyester!) to midi skirts to high-waisted shorts.

I went straight to my closet and found my Lucky Brand Legend High-Rise Trouser Jeans {polyvore}, my Nimbin Peasant Blouse and Nori Wedges. I parted my hair down the middle and straightened it.

It seems most people went the disco way a la John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. There was even a “John McEnroe” complete with a curly wig and headband. Pretty clever!
My guys come home today! I am so excited and pray this day goes by fast. Of course, now that I’ve said that out loud it will be the slowest.day.ever. HAHA!
Have a Great Day!

I realized I’ve been getting dressed but haven’t posted any Que Bella’s. These two outfits are some favorites!

I couldn’t wait to wear this top and a friend’s Birthday Happy Hour was the perfect opportunity. I was a copy-cat pairing it with white shorts like the model from the Anthropologie Fashion Show.

~ Nimbin Peasant Blouse, Anthropologie by Tolani, (XS) ~
~ Thora in Lizard, Tory Burch(7) ~
~ Maccaw Clutch, Kate Spade Outlet ~

Another outfit that I LOVED was blatantly copied from Classy Girls Wear Pearls. Loved it on Sarah and on me! I wore this to the #JCrewStyleSession. I didn’t want to go full on Crew and the shorts did the trick. The necklace seems to be an in-store only item and a pendant version of the Crystal Compilation Necklace in Sunwashed Aqua.

Shorts: Milly Silk Pelican (8)
Necklace: J Crew Deco Pendant (in-store only)

I felt very boho in the first outfit and very chic in the second. 

I’m off to NYC right now! Follow me on Instagram @audreybellatx to see pics
from the trip. They will be on my side-bar as well if you don’t have IG. 

These are just a couple of things I’ve picked up at Anthropologie over the last few months. The Fashion Show last week aided in some of these purchases.

Smocked Malee Dress, 6 – I have wanted this dress since I saw it in the catalog but I kept passing on it because I heard the smocking didn’t give very well. Then I would change my mind when one of my favorite SA’s would wear it (hi Michelle!). Once my mother saw the dress she said I had to get it. I was able to order this in both the 6 and 8 when the 15% off was going on the day before Mother’s Day. The 6 fits great and the smocking in the shoulders is not uncomfortable at all. Also, I don’t feel this is any shorter than some of my favorite J Crew mini skirts I have.

The back seems a little longer than the front.

Swiss Dot Shirtdress, Green, 8 – This was a dress I saw on another customer and grabbed my size to try it on. The color reads more of a Teal than a true green and the hue is very pretty. I had to size to an 8 because the bust pulled and gaped open. The 8 did a little but switching to a thinner, non-padded bra helped with that. I added my Louboutin Puglia Espadrilles and my white enamel link bracelet from Etsy for an office day.
Lidia Embroidered Dress by Moulinette Soeurs, 6 – This was an anniversary gift, sort of. Husband had rushed in because he “miscalculated” our anniversary date (in other words, he forgot.) He grabbed the Provencal Blouse but it fit a little tight in the shoulders and was 100% Polyester. I exchanged the blouse for this dress but since one of the little flowers was snagged I ordered it online through the store. I was lucky enough to get a PA as this dress is now on sale, and for $8 less than the blouse. I saved Husband some money! I am able to wear the size 6 as the back has some elastic to stretch a little more. I love this dress and it will be coming with me on my trip. I wore it to work with the J Crew Factory Summer-Weight Cardigan in White and my Navy Cece’s. I removed the cardigan and changed to my Seville Chambray Espadrilles for the Anthropologie Fashion Show.
Nimbin Peasant Blouse by Tolani, XS – I fell in love with this blouse after seeing this on the cute SA from the Fashion Show. This blouse runs small. This is a flowy blouse and depending on how you want wear it will depend on if you go down one or two sizes. I decided to go down two sizes to the XS but the Small fit well too. I wore this with my JC Pleated Shorts in White and my TB Thora in Lizard for a friend’s birthday.

Pompom Crest Tee by Meadow Rue, S – This is one of those embellished tees that is just oh-so-comfy. I sized to a Small as I wanted it to be a little less flowy. Depending on your preference of fit you can go with your normal size or down one. The material is a little thin but not like the Linen tees. The embellishment and pompoms are so adorable. It’s so comfortable I wanted to sleep in it.

Key Lime Apron – I just noticed this went on sale too. I am not lucky with PAs but this will be 3 all at once. That’s pretty awesome. I have a waist apron but not a full-length one. I bought this anticipating whether or not I would receive one for Mother’s Day (I did). But now that it’s on sale and I’ll get a PA I will probably keep it. It’s very cute and green (fave!). 

Parley Weels by Holding Horses, 7 – Kind of high, yes, but the platform helps manage that. These were also used in the Fashion Show and you can see them on me in the first two images above. I love the mix of the cork and wood together.

Anything catch your eye? There are lots of great Fresh Cuts for this week!

Have a Great Day!
