Anthropologie for Fall









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!

  1. When are you coming down to Seattle? If you have time, it would be great to have breakfast or lunch - mail@jamesmoes.com

    You probably have a tight schedule, so do not feel obligated in the least bit.

  5. Very nice header. And the clothes, I really like them! I am going to Boston in October, it is sort of a school field trip, but it is also right on my birthday so I don't see it as that:) I am wondering, is there an Anthropologie there? I'd love to visit!

  6. Anthro gets me everytime, too! I could spend hours in there looking through all the pretty stuff. In addition to their clothes, I also love their offerings for the home!

    You're going to Seattle?!?! That's where I grew up and where I'll always consider "home." Hope you have a wonderful time. I'll be there in November for a wedding...can't wait!

    PS. I love the new header, it seems to fit your personality perfectly....classy and elegant!

  7. The great thing about Anthropologie is that each store FEELS like a boutique shop. Even though their stuff is (mostly) mass-produced, it all feels special. Besides, they also bring in some smaller, independent designers and I love that.

    These pieces are gorgeous; very sophisticated.

  12. Thanks for all of your sweet comments -- I designed this header the other day, and quite liked it, but was having a hard time giving up the Tiffany's blue. (my fav. color) I do like this change, though, and find it to be quite soft and fresh...

    Crystal - I didn't know that! Seattle is quite nice -- I will be emailing you for tips on shopping :)
