Mommy humble brag warning: I think my daughter made a good observation about Anthropologie's style while describing their ornaments. She mentioned that they look as if someone took old rags and pieces of fabric and made them by hand. That they look old and homemade. I agreed that sums up a few of their style aesthetics, including the clothing.
Nature themes remain popular with holiday decorations. I found this big glass owl ornament at Target the other day along with the cute cardinals in a glass house.
The owl next to Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas is from my own tree. Sally came from Disneyland this past summer and I'm pretty sure my owl came from Anthropologie last year or the year before.

I snapped some pictures of cute fox ornaments while in Target. Although $8 per fox is a fair price for them, I am used to ornaments being on some type of sale this time of year.
I have decided to not wash my own sweaters anymore because even if I wash them in cold, they still shrink on me. Luckily I can wear my long Lands End turtleneck underneath this sweater to solve the problem of the too small sweater look.
Sweater: Vintage cat by Susan Bristol from Ebay. I'm guessing from the 80's because of the shoulder pads.
Jeans: Vera Wang from Kohls.
Boots: Isaac Mizrahi from QVC.
Scarf: Isaac Mizrahi Cabled Eternity Scarf with Metallic Detail.

It is getting to the point where if all I ever wore were Anthropologie items, I think I would be set fashion wise. This cardigan, along with pieces like the mushroom blouse, garner more compliments than any other outfits. I think it's just that unique style that I rarely find at any other stores. The other bonus with this sweater is how warm it is. Sometimes embellished tops and sweaters are not warm enough, but last Christmas I did not have to deal with the biting cold. So this past Saturday I brought out this trusty outfit and wore it to a Christmas party. And then another great thing happened. Not once did I think about what I was wearing, except for when I received a compliment. No discomfort from shoes, a skirt that's too tight, cold itchy tops, etc.
