So how was everyone's weekend? Good, I hope! Mine was nice - though way too quick, as always.
Husband was off at a jam session for most of Saturday, so I took the opportunity to hang out with my friend Sean at our mutual friend Theresa's house. Sean recently got himself a shiny new camera, and Theresa has the most adorable bicycle that I totally plan on stealing from her when she's not looking. And since I've been on this big kick with "(500) Days of Summer" lately, we decided to have a photo shoot!
I keep surprising myself with how many of Summer's looks I can re-create with current Anthropologie pieces. The outfit I decided to re-create this time isn't so much from a "scene" as it is a "snippet." But I still thought it was worth doing:
Summer, Riding Her Bike and Her "Average Stats"
I realize that this outfit would've been much closer to the actual movie outfit if I had used the Field Scout Skirt with a white tank, but I don't actually own the Field Scout Skirt so...uh, yeah. However, I thought the Vappu Dress made for a neat little substitute. Now I have to say - I've never ridden a bicycle while wearing a dress or a skirt. But after seeing several other people do it, I guess I realized there's no real reason why I can't too. As long as I'm not showing the "goods," right?
It's fun, finding new ways to wear my Anthro pieces. ^_^
More fun with re-creation:
While my height and shoe size are slightly above average, I can't say I have the "Summer effect." I've never caused a spike in album sales for a Scottish indie pop band. (that I know of, anyway) Nor have I caused an inexplicable 212% increase in revenue at an ice cream shop. And my roundtrip commute to work has never caused any double-takes. Trust me, I know - I commute to work with my husband. ^_-
Then again, my husband and I were able to find eachother amongst 400,000 offices, 91,000 commercial buildings and 3.8 million people. So fate must exist, right? *grin*
Outfit Details (well, what there is of them):
Here's a closeup of Theresa's amazing Hello Kitty bike:
If you look closely, you can even see that the tire tread is made up of Hello Kitty's face. Awesome.
I need this bike.
Some more fun outtakes from our shoot:
*Note: The Vappu Dress is now on sale for $49.95, so it's the perfect time to grab it! ^_^
Hope you enjoyed this installment of (500) Days of Summer - Anthro-style! We'll be back soon with some side-by-side reviews!
