The ole switcharoo

Tried a red, long-sleeved version of this dress on at Anthropologie that’s been out for a while. It was awesome. Saw this on Modcloth (it’s new to the site today) and contemplating getting one or the other. Same dress? Half the price. What up with that? I’m guessing the Modcloth version is a lighter weight fabric (you can see the light through the dress at the bottom of the Modcloth dress and the fabric is not clinging to the form as the Anthro one does).

Anthropologie – $178 – 48 inches long

Modcloth – $79.99 – 41.5-43 inches long depending on size

Friday’s Fab Finds under Fifty ($50)

Nothing like a Friday work break to check the latest and greatest online sales. Yes most of them are summer-y and light-weight dresses but short enough to be worn over leggings (or jeggings) and with a belted sweater for fall. If you are fans of Free People, Roxy, or J.Crew you should especially take a look at their sales right now.

Summer transition to fall

My new theory is that the worse weather gets in other parts of the country/world, the better it gets in Sacramento. The nights have been cool and we’ve stayed out of the triple digit temperatures more than usual. Whether it’s global warming or global cooling fall is just around the corner. For those of us with limited closet space, it’s almost time to do the bi-annual wardrobe change-up – when the summer frocks get stored to make way for the fur-collared sweaters. Here are some of my favorites from the August 2010 Anthropologie catalog to inspire for your fall transition.
