Mod Life

OK, I'm back!  Can't say that I got a whole lot done this weekend but hey, a little something is better than nothing, right?  I hope you all had a great weekend!

I seriously have more than one thing to rave about in this outfit!  First of all is this skirt- with its velvet texture and geometric design, I feel like it's a piece right out of the modern era.  A few weeks ago when I told you guys about the extra 25% Anthro sale, this is one of the pieces I grabbed, and I can't wait to wear it again & again this fall.

Secondly, I can't rave enough about this Lodinatt bag.  It arrived to me the same day that I got my new pug, Yurii, and I haven't stopped carrying it since.  Not only are the colors AMAZING (burgundy and sage-green in one??) but it has a deep pocket at the bottom which I use to store all of Yurii's things like his leash, dog treats, and mini travel bowl.  You can see from one of the photos that I have his travel leash stashed in there.  And I think it's a funny coincidence that this bag came from Korea, where Yurii is from. (PS- I know you guys can see Yurii being curious (or nosy! haha!) in the first photo and I promise, I will be giving a formal introduction very soon! ;)

  5. Gtreat print on the skirt. Let me know how it holds up. Anthro used to be one of my favorite stores but the quality has just been horrible..especially for the price!
    Glad you got SOME stuff done ;)

  7. I think your Yurii is about the same size as my Elvis :P I used to carry Elvis in a special dog bag when he was a puppy. he didn't like it though, hehe.
    anyway, your new purchases are perfect for autumn! the pattern of this skirt is great and the colours of the bag are so right, like you said! great choices, A! ;)
