a horrible, gigantic, enormous mistake

For months and months I have been reading blogs about a certain store and how in love all these classy women are with this store. I thought to myself:

"Self, thank GOD there isn't one of those near here, cause I would go bankrupt."

Then I found out there was one near here. Damn. I had to go in, I had to. So, one night last month, I left early for my Mom's Night Out and ventured, for the very first time ever, into a..

da da daaaaaaaaaaaa

ANTHROPOLOGIE

OH. MY. GOD.

The minute I walked in, I felt like I was on vacation. For real. I wondered around in awe for awhile, touching some fabric here, admiring a dress there, flipped through a few books and looked at the gorgeous dishes. Thankfully, I didn't leave myself much time and left without buying anything. Afterwards I found out there is a whole room in the back that is clearance. A WHOLE ROOM. Must go back soon. My birthday is coming up. I might ask to spend the whole day there.

Here are a few of my favorites currently listed online..

Love love love this dress

and this one

and this one

all of which I think would love fabulous with these shoes.

I also fell in love with this scarf. Gorgeous.

And this cute little birdie necklace,

and this stylish hat! I just discovered that I can sort of pull off hats so I am always looking for cute ones.

And then I ventured to the home section where I found these little measuring cups,

this awesome cookie jar,

this little butter dish, my favorite thing I found today, and

these little salt and pepper shakers. I have a little collection of salt and pepper shakers and think these would fit nicely. Yep. Like them a lot. And that little butter dish above... Did I mention my birthday was coming up? Just sayin'...


Yep. I have a new favorite store.

I'd like to know what the total dollar amount of objects you just listed here were? $1000? More? :)

I would LOVE to be able to shop there too, but it's too dang expensive. Check out www.rustyzipper.com. They have some similar vintagey type dresses, but waaayyyy cheaper. Also, look at Forever 21 for cute, cheap hats and jewelry that are really similar. They have great accessories, usually $15 and under, and you can get them online.

I've got bad news for you: once you've been bitten by the Anthro bug it never goes away. (I've been eyeing that same navy dress. Love it!)

Hope that butter dish makes its way to your table soon! :)
