Anthropologie Hot List

Many of us rely on Anthropologie for their unique selection of clothing, mixed price points and amazing customer service.  Beyond that, the possibilities are endless when you walk through the door.

Recently, I spent an evening with fellow local bloggers and the personal shoppers at Anthropologie in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. Our goal for the evening? To create unique holiday looks that spoke to our own personal style.

Above I’m wearing a dress by Tracy Reese, which I had purchased at the Anthropologie in King of Prussia. I immediately fell in love with the lace fabrication and versatility of the dress. It came with a black slip dress underneath but I decided to style it with a bodysuit, jeans and over the knee boots. If I had only one piece of advice for people it would be to tap into your creative side and think outside the box when styling your outfits. You don’t have to wear an outfit exactly the way they style it in the store or catalog. There are so many ways to wear this dress, which I will feature in my blog soon!

Ok. Bomber jackets. When this trend first hit the streets I was not a fan and thought I wouldn’t wear a bomber jacket after their stint in the 90’s.  But then,  they started designing them with embroidery and appliqués —> hook, line and sinker. The one I’m wearing here is A-MAZING! Shop it HERE!!! !!!!! If you’re a hat person and want to change things up from the common floppy hat trend, try a beret! They are so Parisian and so chic. Shop a similar one here.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite bomber jackets for you to shop:

My fave! A colorblock vegan leather bomber!

Another embroidered option – chic and trendy

Love the cutouts on this one

My fave layering bandeau!🙌🏻

Of the moment VELVET!

OTK Roundup

Over the knee boots are a must this season.  They have been in stores for years and they don’t show signs of disappearing any time soon.  In fact, the silhouettes keep evolving and the lengths keep moving further and further up the thigh.  I’ve had mine for years and I am so pleased that, once again, I can wear them all winter long. This is not my first post on over the knee boots and, truthfully, I hope I can post another one next year.  I just can’t get enough of them!

The grey suede stilettos I’m wearing in these photos are from the incredibly chic brand, M. Gemi.  I instantly became a fan of their brand when I discovered their 100% Italian leather, hand-made designs on Instagram. It’s hard to find impeccably designed, luxurious shoes at an attainable price point these days but M.Gemi is changing that for consumers.  They offer their shoes directly to customers, cutting the middle man out, which means you get an insanely gorgeous pair of leather shoes (including the soles) for an insanely reasonable price. Plus, when you use my code alison143, you get an additional 20% off 🙂

Shop M. Gemi here.

Over the years, I have invested in more than one pair. Pictured here are a stiletto and a 1/2 inch heel but most recently I purchased another pair in an of-the-moment block heel. There are an infinite number of ways to wear them from skinny jeans, shift dresses and rompers to long oversized sweaters or oversized blazers.  In the winter months, you can essentially wear them as tights if you buy a pair that are extra tall.  The pair you see pictured below are designed by L.K. Bennett and I’ve worn them more times than I can count.  At this point, my cost per wear has to be a negative number and since they are a flat boot, they have been eternally versatile –> meaning, they were worth every penny! If you’re ready to take the plunge, invest in a pair that fits your personal style so you can get as much wear out of them as possible.
