Rich Tapestries

Here's my submission for the weekly reader outfits over at Effortless Anthropologie. As soon as I saw this top - the Modern Obi Pullover - I was immediately taken back about 12 years when I remember several stores selling jeans that had cuffs sew of the most beautiful patches of fabric. Anthropologie was probably one of them. Not being able to find a pair that fit or that I could afford, I bought my own fabric and took them to a seamstress to have my own favorite pair of jeans embellished (I do not know how to sew much more than a button).

I love tops like this...... an otherwise plain, basic tee is given special details - here, the attached Geisha like belt that is made from a variety of pretty patterned fabrics - which also gives it a peplum like look. The colors in this will give endless outfit possibilities. Like a good girl though, I waited until this went on sale at Anthro before purchasing.
I'm wearing it with my $3 consignment shop jeans, boots that were a gift from last year, and a necklace I made. The necklace features many types of fabrics as well so it was the natural choice for this top.

You are darling. You can rock anything. My own Anthro story is not going so well. Those fancy shoes I was coveting? They were out of stock but it took them a week to tell me. {Insert pouty face here}. I love seeing how you pretty yourself up! Enjoy the day. Erin
