Lunch hour shopping

A friend and I were supposed to go out to lunch but ended up spending our lunch hour at Anthropologie in the up-and-coming Westside of Atlanta.  We browsed the sale racks, and I found this skirt in raspberry -

I like the bright color, as you know.  However, what am I going to wear with all of my brightly colored tops?  So, I tried on the skirt in khaki -

I liked the khaki better in the store, but now I think it looks too safari.  I brought them both home, so I can decide later.

I also tried on some harem pants -

They are soooo comfortable but look dumpy and (once again) safari on me.  Here is where a little styling helps.  Around the corner, walked this sales girl wearing the same pants -

Now, it does help that she has model-like proportions.  However, she also paired the pants with a slim fitting shirt, a belt and higher wedges.  And she pushed the elastic higher up on her leg.  All of these changes made the pants look much more stylish -

I'm going to wait for them to go on sale.  Even if I don't end up with any clothes, Anthropologie is always worth the trip just for the decor -
