Anthropologie & Glee: Back to School

A few months ago Debbie and I got to do a guest post for Roxy at Effortless Anthropologie after Debbie had the idea of creating outfits based on the styles of our favorite Glee characters using Anthropologie clothes (check out that post here). Since Season 2 of Glee is about to premiere on September 21st, we thought it would be fun to do a Back to School, Fall edition. Checks out Debbie's looks here. We had so much fun doing this and we hope you enjoy it too!

First up is my look for the fabulous Emma, she is the easiest to style because just about everything at Anthro looks like something she would wear. I chose the adorable Ruffled Plaid Dress because it screamed 'Emma' to me, the plaid, the ruffles, the belt and the floral detail fit her perfectly. I paired it with the green Dimpled Cardigan.

Next up is Quinn, who always seems to be dressed in very girly, soft and pretty colors. I chose the First Falling Blouse, Buoyant Bunches Cardigan and the Pilcro Cohort Corduroys. I personally ended up loving this outfit and added all of it to my wishlist!

On to the preppy, overachiever with a touch of quirky, Rachel. I ended up going with the Slanted Plaid Blouse and the Finishing School Skirt. I could also see Rachel rocking some knee socks and oxfords with this look.

Lastly, we have Mercedes, who was very difficult to shop for at Anthropologie since she has more of the urban, hip-hop look most of the time. I have seen her sport some military-esque looks in the past so I went with the Soldierly Sparkle Top and the Cadre Noir Leggings.

Also, I have to add in a funny story from when Debbie and I were shopping. When Debbie went to try on the Stretch Cord Leggings in Tina's look, she started freaking out because it had a fake zipper and button on them and she was like, 'how do I get in these things!?' Then we realized they were leggings and it all made sense. We ended up getting a good laugh out of it though!!


  1. What a fun post, Sara! I love the outfits you put together. And I love moments like that (laughing over the leggings) when out shopping with a friend. Those are the best. =)

  2. I just adore the Finishing School Skirt/Slanted Plaid Blouse look! You and Debbie are both so creative; I really enjoy these posts. Fab outfits all around.

  3. I love the plaid dress on you with the cardigan! You look so pretty!!

  4. Thanks ladies, we had a lot of fun doing it.

  5. I love these Glee posts! You and Debbie do them so wonderfully! My favorite is Quinn's outfit here. It's perfect! :)

  6. Sara- What size did you pick up in the dimpled cardigan? I can't decide to go with a L or XL....Thanks!!
