OOTD: Blushing, Blistering Browns

(Don't forget---today is the last day to enter the 30 Day Shred Giveaway!)

The Wednesday before I left for Israel, I partook in what I knew would be my last Anthro sale day for almost three weeks.  Like many fans of Anthropologie, I look forward to new markdowns and really enjoy sorting through the website and stores for hidden treasures.  I ended up visiting all four Manhattan Anthropologies on Wednesday.  I'd only planned on seeing two, but when I found crazy markdowns at both (Lynx and Leo dress for $10 what what?) I started to wonder if maybe the NYC stores were cleaning out their back rooms and shouldn't I take advantage of the subsequently low prices?

My outfit was poorly designed for walking.  First, the skirt part of the Southward Stop Shirtdress constantly  rides up when I wear tights and walk.  I know this.  Yet I still wore tights and walked.  And it was windy.  This led to constant, self-conscious checks to see if I was accidentally flashing the viewing public.

Secondly, my shoes, new $25 thingies from Target (here), turned into little instruments of torture after about two hours.  To be fair, I probably walked the equivalent of two miles or so, but STILL, by the time I got home I could barely take a step.  True story:  I took a cab four blocks from a subway to an Anthro because I could not walk that far in my shoes.  And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why it's worth it to spend a bit of extra money on a decent pair of shoes.

This is the way I was walking by the end of the day.
