Breezy Days: Anthro...the store, not the major.


May 7, 2011

Anthro...the store, not the major.

The style of the wedding is based off a few of my favoritest things: Bruno Mars, Audrey Hepburn, and Anthropologie. And yes, I did spell it right for those who do not know of this AH-MAZING store.

Take a gander! You may the heck can anyone afford their clothes? After years of inspecting the store and it's patterns, I've learned one of their major secrets of success...practically EVERYTHING goes on sale. Be patient {which is already very difficult for me, but in this case it's worth it}, get to know the sales people at your nearest Anthro, woo them with your stunning personality {easy as cake}, then they will feel so inclined to not only tell you when the sales are, but even hold onto your dress of choice until you come and pay for it. The sale price I might add.
NEXT order of business. Audrey Hepburn. Epitome of grace, elegance, and quirkiness. My absolute favorite movie ever is My Fair Lady. {If you haven't seen this classic, go rent it. Now.} After I bought my dress, my mom was telling the cashier how Audrey Hepburn is an inspiration for the reception, and the manager then dropped her jaw. Why? Because Vera Wang was watching MY FAIR LADY when she designed the line for Davids Bridal! Coincidence? I think not.
Bruno Mars? Yes, the singer.  Ryan and I's song is "Marry you", and everytime I listen to this album my heart sinks because Ryan and I aren't together listening to it. Yes I'm being sappy and lame give me a break.

How does this all add up? Anthro gives the eclectic/vintage style, while Audrey Hepburn is classicly beautiful and always dressed to live up to her reputation, and finally Bruno Mars is jazzy R&B music that makes Ryan and I smile :)

Outfit for the night! First time being dressed up since before the surgery.
