Wanty

I'm been feeling wanty. Time to get it out of my system.
Cute anchor skirt from LL Bean. I can make something similar. Not going to pay $49. Besides, what would I wear it with?


What I wouldn't give for a pair of espadrilles with a lower heel (and, oh, I love that peep toe) ...like these only not so flowery and bow-bedecked. If these came in a solid color, I'd snap 'em up, even at $67.85.

And finally, the Charlie and Lola tomato mug. I'm with ya, Lola.

Oh, I love Charlie and Lola!

And if you make a skirt similar to the anchor one... you can choose a print that will actually match something.

Those shoes are very cute. Where did you find them?

The shoes are on 6pm.com under Vidoretta. They also come in a blue color scheme.

OHMYgosh! I Love that mug!!! I bought a dvd of Charlie and Lola "for my kids" (secretly I bought it for myself because I LOVE C&L, and now my 4yo little gilr is also in love with the show) but I never thought to even look for C&L Stuff!!! I'm thinking bday gift for my little 'Lola'....

New Look 6345 has that same button tab waistband! I'm sure you could fashion it yourself, but if you're feeling a bit like just following a pattern, it's that one...although the skirt's a bit more of a fit n' flare.

OH NO! Have I inspired wantiness in others? Need to rethink doing this again!

Angie, I don't even care about the waistband, to be honest. I always wear my shirts untucked anyway. I just loved the colors and the piping and how summery it looked. I have been craving YELLOW, but I'd look like poop with it next to my face, so I was drawn to that band at the hem.

I was in L.L. Bean last Saturday and there were many of those skirts (many of that skirt?) on the clearance rack. If you really want it, now's the time to get it!
