Don't you just love Anthropologie? For me, one of the beauties of traveling to the United States, is that no matter which major city you visit, you're almost always guaranteed to find an Anthropologie location! Although, 90% of my shopping is done at boutique stores, (I feel strongly about this) I simply can't resist this shop!
My very first experience was in Manhattan, in Rockefeller Centre, when I was about 16. I had no idea that this store existed, but was immediately drawn in by their unique and captivating window display of ultra-cozy wool sweaters and dresses. It was my birthday and 105 degrees out, but I didn't care! I pulled my Mom inside that store and spent the following hour in somewhat of a trance, both surprised and delighted with each turn and corner! I can still remember one of my favorite displays that was created, with an old bike, propped up against a railing, and adjacent, an old wooden ladder. I couldn't leave the store without buying at least a few pieces...pieces that were so pretty and detailed. (and I still have them!) It's been the same ever since. Each time I visit Anthropologie, I spend half the time enjoying the displays, half the time collecting home and personal fashion, and can never leave without a full bag and a smile on my face...
Which brings me to my next point—soon, I will be visiting Seattle for a mini—vacation, but also to visit some of the stores that we don't have in Canada. I have pulled together a few fabulous pieces from their Fall collections that I hope to check out. Do you shop there? Have you already purchased for Fall there?I would love your opinions!
Another question for you, friends, do you like my newly re—designed header?
You can be perfectly honest, and please do!
