Fall Fun in the Field Game

I missed out on the ever popular Field Game Cardigan last year and have been searching for the gray colorway on ebay for a while now.  I finally found one for a very reasonable price!  Just goes to show that "the one that got away" will usually come back around (and maybe even for a steal of a price) if you are patient.  Which brings me to one of my new budget resolutions - "Never buy another Anthro item at full price just because I'm scared it will sell out in my size before it hits sale."  In the past I've panicked and snatched up items at full-price when my size was dwindling, only to later see the item for sale price or even cheaper on ebay or through EA's trade market. 

Cardigan: Anthropologie Field Game Cardi (via ebay)
Blouse: New York & Co. (really old)
Jeans: Vanity
Earrings: Anthropologie Petite Filigree Drops 

My first few times wearing this cardi I went the boring route and just wore a gray top underneath.  This time I decided to try out an unexpected color combination.  I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.  I think the bold goldenrod color contrasts nicely with the soft and sweet lace and light gray/beige.  I went and broused the J. Crew outlet while wearing this outfit and one of the SAs repeatedly complimented me on the color combo.  Not only that, but she kept pointing it out to other SAs and even told me that if I needed a job, she'd love to pick my brain for unique color pairings - haha! 

Have you ever found "the one that got away" on ebay or the trade market for a killer deal?


  1. Love these pics! So delightfully fall :)

    I missed out on the Fall Foliage sweater dress when it first came out. I posted for forever on EA but never found one. then randomly one day I came across one in my size on ebay for less than what the sale price was! I was thrilled! It is by far my favorite fall/winter dress!

  2. and Oh! oh! I just noticed your Golden Pinnate necklace! It is perfect with this outfit! I am so in love with mine...glad you like yours too!

  3. That's a gorgeous cardigan, and I love it with that yellow top underneath- great color combo! I have had similar things happen, and rarely (if ever) buy full price items at anthro

  4. I have always loved that cardigan and it's so cute with the yellow.=)
