These two are my MUST HAVE items!!

Okay, those are the boots I want.. if they ever get 2nd or 3rd cuts. lol

THESE are THE MOST WANTED boots this year!!

Regalia Button Boots $528
Yes.. really... those boots are EXPENSIVE!!!!
I am going to stalk these boots.. and get them when they hit sale!!! 

And of course.. here is cutest Mary Janes from Miss Albright!!

Bowed Lacrta Mary-Janes $168

I tried these on at Anthro the other day. Everyone say these are TTS but for me, 7.5 fit me better! (a half size down)

Last year, I missed Anticipation Heels, so this year, I MUST get these heels!! (Of course, they have to be on sale.. I have too many items I want..)

And guess what I got last Tuesday?? 

Pop backs!!!

Tombolo Dress (originally $268)

For $19.95!!

Level99 High Waist Chambray Trousers (originally $118)

For $29.95!!

I am not sure if I'd keep these. I wanted them when they showed up in the store, but since I have another gaucho pants from Level 99, and now that I need more $$ for fall items.... I have to try them again!

And the other day.. I found this pop back! It says it's back ordered.. Hope I can get it!

Finding Roses Blouse (was $78)

For $19.95!!

Anniversary Giveaway Winner is..

Comment No. 2


You won these cute earrings for your Take Action ♥ ♥ ♥

I've been staying at my sister in law's house for 10 days.. and I hadn't been able to update my blog.. 
Tonight, finally got to move back!! YAY!!!  

Her family is out of country for a month, and the second week was our turn to look after their dog and the house. It was good experience for my daughter to live with a dog. Also, they have a big trampoline in the back yard, so it was so much fun for her. 

It wasn't so much fun for me, though.. My daughter made me run around and jump with her on the trampoline, and my whole body was sore every night... lol

Plus, the house isn't child free, I mean.. there are many dangerous stuff for my daughter, so I couldn't relax at all... 

Anyways, I am back and loving our apt more than ever!!

I made some new items for my etsy store TanPoPo while I was there. 

I am so into making these right now.. 
It's good for me because it keeps me away from shopping... 

I really miss Anthropologie..

I might go there tomorrow!! :D

1 Year Anniversary is coming soon!! Aug 22nd!

Wow, I didn't know it's already been a year since I started this blog until Laura from Anthro Closet Chaos mentioned it here. She also had a year anniversary! (I didn't know it til today.. Congratulation, Laura!!)

I was thinking what I should do.. I mean, for the giveaway!!

When I started this blog, it was all written in Japanese. The first post here.

I was saying.. I wish I had my daughter's eyelashes.. lol

It was like a diary, where I went, what I ate, how my daughter was doing.. etc.. to update my life with my friends and family in Japan. The most fun part of the blog for me was to share everyone "what I bought", "what I want", and "what I wear"!

I don't have a photographer or a nice husband who would take photos of me for my blog, so my OOTD photos are just boring me in front of mirror..

I used to shop at H&M, Forever21, Urban Outfitters, Free People...
but I don't shop there at all now..

I only shop at Anthropologie!
My closet is filled with Anthro dresses and tops now.

Wow, that's crazy. How did I afford all that???

I've made some sweet Anthro friends through this blog, their blogs and Anthro Community. I want to thank EA to the most because I've learned A LOT from the blog about how to shop smart at Anthropologie.

Thankfully, I live very close to an Anthro store, so I get to hunt sale room and have found many gorgeous items in amazing price.  THIS made me Anthro-holic. (I think this word was made by Kim from Anthroholic)

Anyways... here.. is..


A pair of earrings from my etsy shop TanPoPo.

I kept a pair for me to wear them with my Take Action. The color matches!!

To enter the giveaway:

Please tell me..
1, how you found this blog.
2, which shop you shop the most.
3, what's your most wanted item in this fall.
4, your email address to contact you if you win! 

The entry ends on 21st of August, a day before the anniversary!! I will announce the winner on 22nd!!

is also having a year anniversary giveaway!! I am sure every Anthro fans of my blog readers know about it already, but I am posting about it to give me extra vote :D

Elizabeth is giving $25 Anthropologie Giveaway! WOW!

Top 5 Wishlisted -Shoes-

I have been eyeing on these Jeffrey Campbell Brit Wrap Strap Booties for a long time.

I am sooo close to break down..

And from Anthropologie, these are what I REALLY want.

And I am just drooling over Chie's collection, these are the most attractive boots in this season.

style: modena
disponible en nuestra tienda online 
Does that mean not available online?? 
I don't think I can afford them, but I am curious how much they are..


Probably in a couple months, Anthro will introduce more boots...

sigh... again...

New Anthro :)

Again, I was trying not to go to Anthropologie but my husband and my daughter decided to go to the shopping center.

I waited until we finish our lunch. lol

Then run into Anthro.

These are what I got today

 Denpasar Skirt

 Latticed Weekend Skirt

 Sun-Stitched Skirt

Oh wait, it's already August! I thought it was still July..


I tried on two pairs of shoes from the last post.

Feel of the leather is soft. The color is just beautiful. (Both Green and Turquoise)
Tried on my usual size 8, but they were little big, so I tried on 7.5. They were slightly big but with tights, they will probably stay on feet. I want to try size 7 next time.

Look better online. I guess they look the same but I wasn't that much attracted in these heels when I tried them on. 
Size 8 was slightly big and size 7.5 was slightly snug.
I don't really care at this point, because I am not buying these anymore..
I like last year's Anticipation Heels better... (I don't own them though... )

I saw these two pairs in the store, but didn't try.

These pair look really beautiful. I think they can be worn in fall because they are suede(?) but I wish they weren't clogs.. 
They kind of look like Nightshade Heels by Chie Mihara and I prefer Chie's if I ever get chance to own those...

Again, clogs.. /cry
The color of the leather look beautiful in person. I saw these booties last time and I put them in my wishlist. 
Next time, I will try them on but probably by the time, I will find better booties in Anthro site.
