Pinks and Florals

My daughter wanted me to showcase my Fauvism skirt by Troubadour from Anthropologie.  I rarely buy full price but I fell for the unique print that looks like a painting.  This skirt has been back ordered for about three months and at the time I placed an order, Anthropologie was having one of those 25% off sales.  I loved the idea of it being back ordered until May since then I would not have to worry about my card being charged for months.

My bill recently came and all I can say is, between Lilly Pulitzer for Target and my other favorite stores having good deals, my credit card needs a rest.  I also have two bigger ticket items on my wish list, one of which is the wicker frog handbag from Kate Spade.  That froggy needs to be marked down a couple of times, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it hits sale.        
I'm cutting back on shopping, so for example, the espadrilles from Target pictured above will have to wait.  I love these Hawaiian style shoes and they remind me of what was everywhere in the 80's, along with all of the other shoes with floral prints.      
I took this picture of a Michael Kors daisy print top at Macys because it could pass for a vintage early 70's shirt.  This would look cute with so many things from pants to various lengths of skirts.   
I'm loving the lace and pinks that are showing up in stores lately.  This Macys INC dress would be nice for spring/summer events.
This is another darling INC maxi dress with a Pucci inspiration in yet again, pink.  I'm usually too preoccupied with my favorite stores so I rarely walk around Macys like I used to when I was in my teens and twenties. I had a lot of fun snapping pictures and this leads me to a question for anyone who wants to leave a comment. 

As you can see, I just took pictures of garments instead of dressing room reviews.    
My question is, do readers mind if I just show pictures of clothes that are currently available without a model?
As a reader of blogs who share the same taste in clothes, I certainly would not mind seeing just clothing shots showcasing what is currently out in stores.
Anything I find that is either Anthropologie or vintage style I love to share with readers.

    1. I really want to know how your new site is working for you. I peaked last night and it looks great, but I have questions that I will ask on your site so others can see.
      See you on your blog in a few,
      Stacey

    2. Thank you, Stacey! It is a lot of work right now. I am presently reformatting every single post and it is taking a loooooong time. I have a list of about 20 things maintenance wise that I need to do and I am finding it a little daunting. I also haven't really blogged since it went live because I am doing so much work on it. I am pretty sure it will all be worth it in the end! If I can just get to the end! lol

  3. Okay so that worked - from blogspot! Arrghhh

    What I was saying is that I also don't mind the product shots at all! It's fun to see what's out there. I also like the pink dress. And that daisy top is awesome!

    1. Thank you for your comment. I would not mind seeing just pictures since I don't make it to every store out there. A month ago I saw a cute yellow cotton skirt on a blog and I had been wanting a yellow 50's style. It was from the Loft and had I not seen this blog I would have missed out.
      Thanks,
      Stacey

  4. Either way really, although I do love to see what the garment looks like on, sometimes it just isn't possible.

    bisous

    1. Thanks for your input. I agree, it's more fun to see the clothes on the person, along with the review. If I'm rushing through a store and see something appealing, I like the idea of sharing what's out there before it's gone.
      Thanks,
      Stacey
