Friday Florals

I couldn't wait for it to get warm so I could wear this top. I had gotten it in the dead of Winter, which is truly a testament to finding deals during off seasons. Anthropologie was having their extra 40% off sale items, and I decided to make the trek to 2 of the Detroit area stores I had not been to yet to check them out : Birmingham and Troy. When these sales are going on, it is best to go to a physical store because a lot of stuff is sold out online. Plus, you never know what might be hiding in the racks. 
 The boys and I headed out for the day. It was a little over an hour to get to Birmingham, a cute little downtown that I would love to explore more now that the weather isn't so bitter! The store in Troy is inside the "fancy" mall there (Somerset Collection) which was about another 15 minutes away. This is where the likes of Neiman Marcus, Saks 5th Avenue, and such are located for the city. I hadn't been to this mall since I first moved to Michigan about 12 years ago. Their "theme" or "logo" has always been peacock related, and we enjoyed some peacock decor in the food court that day.
 I found this top - the only one they had - stuffed in a rack. The brand is Zimmerman, one that Anthropologie has long carried. Their pieces are gorgeous, but their price tags are never within my realm. For instance, this top retailed for $360 (see link here). Yep, you read that right. I never thought they would make it marked down enough for me before selling out.
 I will admit, it really is a high end garment. The material, craftsmanship and details are excellent so by no means am I knocking the price or trying to compare it to something you would find at Kohl's. I felt incredibly lucky that it fit me and was marked down to $89.95. With the extra 40% off, made it about $54. This is the only way I would ever be able to afford something like this and when you look at the whole picture it is so worth it to own a designer piece like this.
 The Details:

Zimmerman "Tarra" Peasant Top - Anthropologie
Button Necklace - made by me
Hi Rise Jeggings - American Eagle
Bussola "Ibiza" Sandals - Kohl's (retail $110, bought for $22)
 Where? Friday jeans day at work.
