Anthro Fashion Show | 2014

It's that time of year again, folks. The cold is knocking, the flurries flying, all the ladies bundled in fancy coats and scarves, (wearing heels obviously) and Anthro's winter collection is here!! (Cue all the confetti explosion emojis) 
And that also means Anthropologie's Winter Fashion show; Renée and I go every year.

Obviously I took this night to whip out these fancy ladies for the first time this season.
(If you've been around for a while you might remember them from this very errr amateur post from the beginning of c/oMKE.)
Shoes | Aldo (old)

Cheeky Né photobombing the trees ^^^^

Anthro does a fantastic job of clearing off the floor of the store itself to add chairs for all of the ladies. The whole store is turned into a gorgeous winter wonderland. You watch beautiful outfits as you sit in a field of trees like these. ^^

The cool thing about these fashion shows is that Anthro will send out emails to see if anyone would be interested in modeling. These gorgeous ladies aren't models; they are every day women and dedicated Anthro fanshionistas :)

Ummmm and can we just talk about this tulle skirt for a second???? Gimme.

I'm wearing: wedges - Aldo (similar) | Skirt - Anthropologie (similar) | Denim Moto Jacket - American Eagle (similar)

Renée is wearing: Sweater - Target | Shirt - JCrew | Jacket - Target | Scarf - Anthropologie

We drooled and gawked ooohhhh'd and aaaahhhh'd over all the new pieces coming out this year, all of which we are waiting to go on sale (sorry, Anthro, but sometimes yous just a little to pricey.)
Then Né and I had walked around with champagne and Perrier (cause my sis is expecting!!!! Boom. *drops mic*) mesmerized by the beautiful decorations and lovely clothing.

Also, if you stop into Anthro this season, please check out the cutest ornaments known to man. And then, Buy. Me. All. Of. Them.

If there is an Anthro in your area, make sure you sign up to be an Anthro member. You will get emails for first dibs and new arrivals, the birthday discount, and events including birthday ones like this.

Eeeeeeppp! Guys, I'm so excited for the holidays. AND the snow is heerrreee!!!

Date Four: Chicago | Last Man Standing

The dating bender is over, all. It's done. Remember these two posts (One | Two)? I had cut guys out of the dating bender and ended up with just those two gents.
Flannel Fella was a great guy, but after a few dates I just started realizing that he felt like just a friend. I just wasn't into it like that.

Then there was Biker Boy from this post? After date two with him I realized that no one else really compared. Sooooo I haven't been on Tinder since and I haven't been active on Match.
We had been talking a lot and spending time with him was blowing everyone else out of the water soooooo bye Tinder...for now.

Things with him have been great! We went on dates three and four this weekend. For date four the gent swept me away to Chicago, his home town, for the day.
It was hands down the best date I had been on. (Aside from maybe our first date and the motorcycle ride.) We grabbed coffees and walked around Millennium Park and downtown. We drove up to Lincoln Park for more walking and holding hands *sigh*. And beers. And pizza at Pequod's. My gosh, guys. Some of THE best pizza.

Anyways, I'm just saying,  he's just a really really great guy and takes me by surprise a lot.
There is nothing official, folks, but I hope that he sticks around for a while. ;)

Over and out.
