Why I LOVE… Anthropologie

Anthropologie has long had a special place in my heart. I know it’s only a store, but it’s been one of my favorite places to shop since I first moved to NY. It was my place to find something unique, to treat myself on a bad day, to buy something pretty before a special date, to reward myself for a job well done. Not the best practice of frugality, I know, but I loved it. I’ve always gotten compliments on things I’ve bought there and I’d estimate that over half of the dresses that I own have come from either the SOHO or Rock Center shops. I should feel bad. I’ve been a supporter of the independent for a long time. Anthropologie certainly can’t be considered a boutique, even though the prices and unique styles often represent what I’d expect to find in one. Still, my support is unwavering.

Now that I’m no longer in NY, I’ve lost my access to my favorite shop. I went from being no more than 20 minutes away from any given location to being at least 2 hours away (the closest one is now in Boston!) Alas, I’ve resorted to combing the pages of the catalog and scouring the website, checking out the latest patterns and assembling my wishlists. These days, I restrict my purchasing a bit more, but thanks to a special someone and a well thought out holiday gift, I’ll be snatching up another beauty before Spring finally arrives.
