Inspired by Anthropologie


I’ve never had the privilege of living very close to an Anthropologie store, so whenever I have the chance to visit one I take full advantage of it.  😉   I leisurely browse the store and longingly gaze at all the gorgeous items for sale (although I typically only buy things from the clearance room!) and also gain inspiration from the creative displays and furniture.  One of my dream jobs would be a Buyer for Anthropologie, and/or someone who designs their displays.

This weekend when my husband and I went to Chicago for a concert, I made sure that I could visit the Anthro store on State Street.  As I walked around, I took some photos to share here- I hope you’re as inspired by them as I am!

Gold mirror = Fabulous.   Dresser with mercury glass panels = Divine.

My husband’s back!  And just a little bored while I’m wandering… j/k   😉   Almost done shopping, honey!

I ended up with a shirt, whimsical painted owl, yellow drawer knobs, wall hooks, a hair barrette, and some bling.  (And totally spent all of the money I earned at my yard sale that morning..plus some.)

If you live near an Anthro, I’m totally jealous!

Are there any stores that inspire you?

    I love Anthro but usually can’t afford a thing in there, but it is a fabulous place for inspiration! Lovely photos 🙂 (And you’re hubby looks exactly like my hubby does when we go shopping…just so thrilled to be there, right? LOL!)

      Kirsten, I always shop the clearance room and this time I got to use a 15% off birthday pass (which was in my husband’s name… we’re both signed up so I get the coupon twice a year).. LOL.
