Anthropologie: Classic with a Modern Twist

It’s an underrepresented favorite of mine but, I have to admit, I am completely obsessed with Anthropologie. Every time I enter one of their stores, I can’t help but feeling somewhat at home. Maybe it’s the fact that they sell everything from candles, to dinner sets to beauty and accessories but I often feel like I want to pop a bottle of bubbly and relax on the coastal sand when entering any Antho location.


The beauty of Anthropologie is not only does it have that vacation-like feel but their clothing is absolutely to die for. I am stunned after each shopping experience when I leave with a bag full of the most unique and feminine clothing. Anthropologie takes a classic button-up sweater and adds lace along the buttons, sparkle and shoulder pads, or ruffles to a totally chic below-the-knee cardigan. Take this basic Leading Role Dress for example, the salmon color is a sure hit for spring and, typically, it would be constructed with basic straps but this poplin frock from LA takes it to the next level by adding a little ruffle around the neckline.


The downside about Anthropologie…save your money Fashionistas because most items are on the pricier side but, I assure you, completely worth it!

Here are a few of my favs:

Ugh, Anthro makes me so sad because I can't afford anything in it! Well, not really...sometimes I indulge in their sales! ;)

Maybe in another life I'll get a job there so I can take advantage of that sweet, sweet discount!

Well, i think we're two peas in a pod:) I'm obsessed with Anthropologie as well (as you'll see from my review)! I adore their attention to detail, store ambiance and unique design. Great choice with the Aniseed skirt, it's adorable and sophisticated all at the same time. Thanks for sharing!

Anthropologie Earrings
Anthropologie is my candy store. I walk in and covet everything I see. That includes the clothes, jewelry, handbags, shoes, home decorations, gifts, the store displays, the dressing room, the tissue they wrap the purchases in…I could go on and on. The store and the products make my imagination swirl. It's a bit like getting lost in a foreign world. There is so much to look at and explore. It's much more than shopping, Anthro is an experience.  Their style is vintage with a modern-day twist. …

Seriously, need I say anything?!  This store is perfection, from it's inventory to the marketing and branding.  It just doesn't get much better!  The moment I step through their doors or open up a catalog, I am transported to another world.  My ultimate dream would be to create an Anthrolopologie for little girls.  We can all dream, right;)
