Being Cheap...It's a Science

Anthropology:the social science that studies the origins and social relationships of human beings.
Anthropologie: the science of dressing to look as if you carelessly threw on five things that were just lying around.
Yep, I'm taking on Anthropologie today. I think I'm bitter towards them because I really, really like their stuff, but I really, really can't afford it. Like the outfit, it costs $500. Seriously? I'd kill for that jacket, but I just don't have the extra $160 to blow on something that will have spit up on it in less than 2 minutes.

So here's my version. At under $100 for the whole look, baby can spit up all she wants and I won't freak about my expensive jacket getting ruined. Funny how having kids puts things in perspective!

The goods:
Lady Capelet Jacket, Forever 21
Abstract Print Skirt, Forever 21
Wide Crocodile Belt, Charlotte Russe
Mason Button Boot, Payless
Chunky Faux Pearl Necklace, Forever 21
Tights (3 pairs!), Forever 21

I agree. I love Anthro but I won't even let myself go in there (for several years) because I know it will just make me feel bad about not having money. Love the outfit you put together!

I agree. =( I had to buy a bridesmaid dress from Anthropologie that cost $130, and it was just plain cotton jersey. Boooo.
