Anthropologie-nspiration



I made a trip to Anthropologie with my camera to give you an idea of what I’ve been raving about. Every time I step into this place I feel like Alice in Wonderland. The ambience is so dreamy I concluded that this is where I will get inspiration for my baking, card-making and decorating. Not Starbucks nor Café Les Deux Magots but Anthropologie. After only about 8 snapshots, a salesperson (Cheshire cat) came up to me and said sheepishly, “I’m really sorry but we don’t allow pictures in here due to the visual stuff.” I smiled, slightly guilty, and tucked my camera into my handbag. Thank goodness I already got the kitchen/bedroom shots.

The next hour was spent taking mental notes on what was pretty and wasn’t. I couldn’t afford anything in the store this time and secretly wished I could make my own dresses. The cloth selection in this country, although expensive, can get really tempting. And if I pick a design from any one of the 1000 dresses in here, I could be a little Anthropologie princess myself. Too bad I just don’t have the patience.

My last resort? Bargain-shopping. Just cause you can’t buy stuff from Anthropologie, doesn’t mean you can’t find Anthropologie-like stuff elsewhere right? Guess where the dress I’m wearing is from? Picture above.
