It’s no secret that I have a love affair going with the style and marketing department of Anthro and Free People. I could live in the window display at Anthro for a week and be perfectly happy if someone brought me snacks. I have to be honest and say that their clothes are not that well made (always have something unraveling on them–makes me crazy), but I still am enamoured with the cut of their pieces and how feminine they are—they know how to drape a woman’s body. I try to keep my Anthro/Free People indulgences to a minimum for obvious reasons…you can find the occasional piece at secondhand spots (like this one I found at Buffalo Exchange in Portland)…
But occasionally…a piece calls my name and I think about it the next day…it is then that I know it was destined for the MPG wardrobe.
I love the skinny-at-top/wide-triangle-at-bottom cut on this…and the color! This is the color for 2012 in my closet. It means passion and joy and I plan on wearing it a lot.
This purchase below (last January on my 40th birthday) still remains to be the single best thing I ‘ve ever added to my wardrobe.
Bonnie Boots make me feel grounded and happy. I plan on adding festive boots a la Old Gringo to the rotation as the years roll on…they tell a story and never go out of style.
Some other additions will involve vintage turquoise jewelry…
I plan on being that wild woman with long silver hair and turquoise jewelry up my wrinkly arms when I’m 75.
I have a Pinterest board for the MPG style finds if you’d like to take a peek…Pinterest can be crack, as I’m sure some of you have found out. Goodness…what a time waster! But a fun place to put all your stuff in categories.
What’s your favorite MPG style accessory?
Hope you had a great weekend, lovelies!
p.s. there’s still room in Top Secret Photography workshop in TEXAS…info is here.
