Must love ruffles....

AnthropoloChic.
That's what i call my style......
when i coined the phrase about a year ago.
Don't worry...

you are free to use it also....
it's not like i had it licensed or copyrighted...
nope...

it's up for grabs for you ....
So far....
Anthropologie has not called me with a conflict of interest...
nope...
they have not.
I'm nervous though...
because they might be angry with me when they read this.
Shall i say it again...
just to make sure you all heard it...
AnthropoloChic
.








Oops...

i hear the phone ringing in the background..

so hold on a minute.

tick

tock

tick

tock

tick

tock.

I'm back....

so glad you are still here.

It was not Anthro headquarters..

whew...

it was the hubby though.

Finally....

and he is having a great time in Hong Kong...

so glad he took a minute to check in.

Anyhoo...

he told me i could do a little shoe shopping...

{at least that's how i heard it....i'm pretty sure he didn't say glue..}

as long as i didn't spend too much money.

Well.....

dang...

because i just spent some cash on the cleaning ladies...

so that means i don't have a whole heck of a lot left....

for shoes....that is.









Don't you fret ...

at least i didn't...

because i found some pretty fabulous.....

oh so fabulous..

shoes...

t-straps mind you.....

ruffly t-straps...

and i couldn't not let you know all about them.

that would be so rude...



So....

you probably want to know where i might have gotten these...

maybe...

maybe not.

I know a few of you made some resolutions that you wanted to start adding

a bit more femininity to your wardrobe...

and i just wanted to add that you don't have to wear them with tights......

i mean...

if you lived here.....

in the awesome midwest...

it's a balmy 10 degrees......

on a good day.

I would wear these with some wide leg jeans......

or even cuff your normal jeans with these...

possibly a skirt...

then wear them with some knee highs.

I'm just giving you some idea's...

or..

maybe you want me to tell you about the boot camp class i went to last night......

then ordered pizza..

came home with the children and watched biggest loser.

Or....

possibly.....

i could tell you about the house i went to look at today...

a far cry from my beloved farm...

but no.. i won't...

not today.

why?....

because i want you to...

Run.....

don't walk....

Did you hear me girls....

run.....

because i just know they won't last long...

but i found these..oh...so...fabulous shoes..

anthropoloChic

style shoes.. at T.J. Maxx.

and the best part is...

they were only $25.

so i grabbed two pairs...

which means i saved money.

Don't you just love when you save that type of money....

Bryan will be so proud!

Wow...looks like I'm the first commenter. :) The shoes are fabulous. I just love TJMAXX....lots of bang...little buck. GREAT FIND. I have 3 TJ's within a 10 mile radius. Let's just say it's a wonderful, yet scary thing. **wink*

Simply Me Art said...

Got to Love TJ,Haven't been in there in a few months. Kids are back to school next week, so I think a visit will be in order. so cute, xo

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

WE have the exact same logic when it come to saving money!! Who knew there were TWO of us amazingly smarty and thrifty types? Our husbands must appreciate us pointing out how we are SAVING them money... I know I would! Way to go. Heh, heh.

Kacey said...

Hmm...cute! Wonder if I could justify the purchase if I have a similar pair w/ a higher heel in black? Yes - yes I can! The heel height is the key.

(Thanks for helping me figure that out!)

P.S. Boot camp negates the pizza, so you're good. At least, that's the logic my girlfriends and I used tonight when we had an ice cream cone after a long walk around the neighborhood this afternoon! :-)

Kristin said...

oh dang girl..those are fabulous...why do you torture those of us that live 3 hours away from any kind of TJMaxx?!?! or am i the only one that lives in the middle of nowhere??
i tried to explain to my hubby that i was saving him money by wanting the $4000.oo leather couch instead of the $6000.00 one that i had first picked out...very thirfty of me i thought...needless to say all that i got was the eye ball roll... ;0)

♥ miss.michelle said...

...Oh Kasey! I totally seen these shoes at TJ's! But it was like a year ago, did you see them recently? I tries them on too, and contemplated on getting them....but didn't :(

I'm all about saving $$$ too this year, my hubby and I are headed to Germany for a couple weeks next fall. I'll be doing the same, hiding my Anthro card and searching for some Anthro knock-offs, just like yourself!
Thanks for all the great tips.

DustyLu said...

Love those tights. The color on the shoes a gorgeous. They even look comfy..TJmax rocks! lulu

Scrapamum said...

I would have loved to see the whole outfit. Those shoes and leotards are so adorable.

mimi charmante said...

*two* pair? and cleaners? and a different house? Well, at least your sassy shoes will look fabulous in gay Paris!
xx

Simply Mel said...

Oh Kasey, it is so good to be back! I missed you, my fashion-forward chic!

MODERN Prairie Girl said...

I am a freak for Anthro...a whore, actually...but I won't say it out loud. It's a sickness, because when you think about it, $168 for a dad-gum sweater is freakin' ridiculous...but no one on the planet (b/c we do live on Planet AnthropoloCHIC, right?) makes stuff the way they do. They just KNOW
WHAT
THEY'RE
DOING...

Unless, of course, we get lucky and stumble across fabulousness at TJ's...b/c that does happen every once in awhile..or so I've heard.

You are charming :)

Julie Harward said...

Isn't it funny how over the years of changes in styles, we gals just keep pulling the ruffles back into style?! We must all be pretty girly at heart! I too love TJ Maxx..it is my most favorite store, I could spend hours in there, just looking at everything! Great job...super cute shoes..he will be so proud! Come say hi :D

Jacqueline said...

Love the text, love the shoes, love the price..... and so will your husband !! I think that they will look very nice in France. Very French Chic, and a bargain to boot (oh, I made a joke...boot...shoes.... Haha) XXXX

City Hen said...

Well living in Poland I assumed all TJ shoppin was over. Out for a stroll with the hubby in a local mall and there it was!!! TKMAXX, the European sister of TJ Maxx. I could have thrown a happy dance right there :)
LOVE your new shoes and your TIGHTS!
Hugs,
Rhonda

Cathi said...

Those shoes are fabulous....I love TJ Maxx...I have spent (saved) many a dollar there...:)

BonjourRomance said...

Fabulous shoes - you see Mary Janes all over here in Paris (and boots). And of course, you had to get two - brilliant!

KarenSue said...

I had a feeling you were going to say that. Too cute! I'm off th Antho today when my daughter gets out of school. She made me Prooomise to take her. I said I guess so(trying not to be to excited). She has a gift card from Christmas. Hope the sales are good!

Julie said...

Score! Those are super cute...I really like that first color...but I know I will get to my TJMaxx and they'll be all gone. They're too cute.

T said...

Mary said...

Tj Maxx rocks! Love the shoes...they look exactly like a pair I saw at a litte french style clothing boutique called LaRueMarche...but they were waaaay more than $25! Good find! ~mary~

lorchick @ ON{thelaundry}LINE said...

Old Navy has a very similar pair right now, much higher heels though! Very cute, I didn't bring them home, even though they were on sale so like $15 each... feel free to smack me! I've been regretting it ever since!

...::Mrs. Southern Bride::... said...

These are just gorgeous!! Totally loving them!

1 Funky Woman said...

Fantastic shoes, super cute and just your style. I would have bought 2 pairs also. My husband wouldn't get the logic in that they were cheaper because they were at TJs. He would think there are 2 new pairs to fit into the closet, lol. Love the tights with them.

I would love it if you would show us how you put together a whole outfit. I especially would like to see how you incorporate boots into your wardrobe. Maybe you could do a "Wardrobe Wed."

Flower Patch Farmgirl said...

LOVE that TJ gal! She frickin rocks.

Leah C said...

Fabulous shoes...so cute with the tights, too:) If I didn't live in a "winter storm warning" area right now, I'd grab my keys & drive straight to TJ Maxx to get a pair!

Polly said...

I have those shoes too! Yep, TJ Maxx special! I wanted the grey ones, but they didn't have my size. :-(

Stylish and comfortable too!

Those stockings are adorable with them!

Those are fab romantic chic shoes, Kasey! I would listen to you, but there's no TJ Maxx here!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

It seems, my dear Kasey-girl, that you are the queen of the good finds this week. First the slipcovers (I have not received mine in the mail yet, by the way...just sayin') and now those awesome shoes. Those shoes are darlinnnng, by the way...so are the tights.

Glad you are saving so much money!!

Destiny said...

Love the new term ~ it's very fitting and so are those shoes!!! Oh my gosh...I LOVE them!!! I went there for the first time a few weeks ago. Before I had only seen it online. I was in heaven! What an amazing store!!! I had to wipe off the drool before leaving! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've heard alot about you from Beth!

Shelley in SC said...

Oh, how adorably cute!! Love t-straps . . . love ruffles . . . love the tights. How funny, I posted about a great TJ Maxx find today too. Great minds??

Martha said...

Have a wonderful day my dear...and keep on shopping for me:)

AshleyR said...

Bryan would most definitely be proud of his thrifty wife... Look at those sexy legs ;)

Carmen said...

I totally love Anthro style but never in a million years would I pay their prices. Good for you on scoring the shoes! They are beautiful!

Raining Pearls said...

It would have been criminal to just get one pair :)

If you have a second stop by and enter my giveawaybif it interest you!

Jerri said...

Kasey I got those exact grey shoes @ TJ's about 6 mos ago but they didn't have my exact size (1/2 too small)...they are so cute! I wore them a couple of times but just too tight...guess who(Ash) ended up with them! ha ha

Debra said...

Annie said...

Those shoes are made for dancing! Love Love Love them.

gina g said...

~hugs

Lori said...

You bargain shopper you ~ good work Kasey! They are too cure for words and you would have laughed at me because I am reading and then I see the last picture and the color looked off so I scroll up and back down then up and down ~ silly me ~ 2 pair = 2 different colors. It IS past my bedtime you know. Now you will have to go dancing when Bryan gets back. toodles.

traci said...

those are really cute. they look perfect on you. not sure i could pull them off. sometimes tj maxx is awesome. especially when you find a deal like this. glad your hubby is having a great time in hong kong.

Jessica Haley said...

Wow--thanks for the tip. You are an official good deed do-er. You know where else is a great place *occassionally* for anthro shoes: eBay. I kid you not. I got pair of my fav peep toes, in the anthro box, on eBay for... drum roll..... $16. Can you stand it?? Here are some pics from shoes I got from Anthro on Ebay a few yrs ago...

paula said...

I love how you bought two pairs and I am so happy he called. I always hate waiting for "the" call when hubby is away, blah.

Barb said...

Kasey, You are my kind of girl.
The shoes will be perfect in France and you saved money. Whoo hoo.

Sarah said...

Very cute shoes! Great find! I just bought myself a ruffle purse, I can't wait to use it! Love ruffles!!!

thepaperroSe said...

ok...traveled an hour to tj...no unbelieveably, cute adorable ruffled shoes!! You and a lucky woman!!!!

goddessof4 said...

Love them!!!!! I want to go right now to TJ Maxx!!! can't go ,we are in the middle of a snow blizzard in Kenosha!!!! Maybe this weekend!!!!! Love the tight too!!!! Sara

Jenny said...

I have the green shoes just like that from Anthro. So cute!

Sara said...

Tres charmant! Love the shoes and the whole dang blog. I'll be visiting often.

Consume me... said...

Anthro-stle w/Target price...love, love, LOVE!!!

Consume me... said...

that was SUPPOSED to say Anthro-STYLE...but you get the gist. LOVE them!

Brenna LaPray said...

So cute Kasey! Did you get the other pair for me?!? You always seem to find such great things. I need to shop with you.

Sarah said...

These are adorable! I may have to do some online shopping.

Tiffany said...

Kasey, you are just awesome. Those shoes are incredibly cute, I just don't think they would look nearly as cute on me and those tights, oh my! Love them. You have some good taste, my friend!

Amy Kinser said...

I am not a real "girly girl" dresser. I am usually a blue jean, sweater, leather messenger bag draped across my body kind of girl. But, I do love these shoes. They are great. And, I love TJ Maxx, but I have to drive 45 minutes to get there and in this weather, it's just not going to happen. So...I figure by the time I could get there, all of those lovely shoes will be gone. I will just admire your photos of them.

Amanda @ Bits and Pieces said...

LOVE! Did you get them recently? What is the brand?

littlebyrd said...

These are SO cute!!!!!

Anonymous said...

SCORE!!! 2 different TJ's....2 differenta directions.....but, am now sporting the shoes in brown! Nothing like being obsessed with something...seeing it through!

Cowtown Vintage said...

I am SOOOOO sad! I went to TJM and they didn't have the shoes. NONE of them! I need to check another one, maybe they will have some there. They are so adorable AND the heel isn't too high. BOO! :( Glad you found some for yourself, though.

Kimmie in TX :)

THE BLISSFUL said...

I HAVE those shoes!!! The pewter ones. Just bought them last week at...yes, T.J. Maxx! I almost bought the fuschia ones, too. So hard to resist. I'll be wearing my pewter ones, thinking of you!

Andee said...

I bought these shoes on your recommendation and got three compliments the first night I wore them!

Lynda said...

Thank you for the heads up on adorable shoes. I went shopping Saturday morning and they happily had one pair left in brown - and in my size. They must have been meant to be. Love your blog and stories. They are always so fun to read!

Adventures in Dressmaking said...

AnthropoloChic is a great word!! I may borrow it on my blog!
