A Crowd Favorite: Anthropologie

I know most of my readers are as much in love with Anthropologie as I am, so today I'm going to show you what the down town Seattle Anthro looks like.  It's my favorite location of the store. Ever.  It's two stories of pure loveliness.  I'm also almost 100% certain that Heaven will smell like Anthropologie.  I'm loving their sets right now.  Let's take a look...






The stairs are finished in a beautiful river rock!


I loved these clear drinking glasses. I want them in my kitchen someday!  One of my friends back home has clear mason jar glasses in which she etched hearts on each glass.  It's too cute for words.

Fun lamps!  My inspiration for this flowered lamp I made came from an Anthropologie lamp I saw over summer.

Their drawer pulls are amazinggg!


Look at this new display:
yes, that'd be toast hung from most burnt to golden brown.

Coffee {or tea, in my case} anyone? These mugs are too darn cute.


How great is this dresser with drawers that look like mail slots? I heart it.


To close, we will play a game.  How much do you think this piece of furniture is??
I can guarantee that all you talented ladies could turn a $30 piece of furniture into something that looks just like this!
Leave your guesses in the comments!

 When I'm in Anthro I feel creative, inspired, and encouraged to be myself with my own style. How do you feel?


Speaking of style, don't forget about my link party coming up this Friday.  I'd love to have you all {I would shorten this to "y'all", but I'd feel like an imposter(: } join the party! To learn more, go here.
You can use this "button" on your posts this week to advertise and your actual Fashion Friday post if you'd like (:




PS. Happy February 1st! 


Love and Being Inspired by Anthro,

  12. OH.MY.GOODNESS. That Anthro is TO DIE FOR! And here I thought the one in DC was the greatest ... I have been proven wrong! :)

    I LOVE all the things that you featured .. Especially those mugs ... I actually gave my sis those for Christmas! :)

    Price on the chalkboard piece? I'm going to go REALLY high {as Antrho often does ;)} and say $1200!

    Can't wait for Friday! :)

  13. I heart anthro. In fact, I may have to pop over to ours today. I can't believe how big that store is. The toast wall is cracking me up. Seriously, who thought of that?

  14. I love this post! Anthro always has such fun designs and sets in their stores. I usually feel more inspired after leaving an Anthro store, because they have such colorful and fun designs.

    That staircase in the Seattle store is cool!

    I am going to guess $900 for that furniture. They have crazy prices sometimes. I usually don't shop there... unless it's something on sale. :)

  15. LOVE anthro. those lamp shades are super cute, but I'm sure way overpriced, just like that dresser, which is probably around $500. it is such an inspiring place and the smell...oh the smell. fab :)

  16. Ooooh...I've been to that Anthro and I LOVED it. Seeing it now makes me want to go back!! And I love the line that heaven smells like Anthropologie - SO true!!

  17. Love love love anthro! My dream is to have 10 minutes in there to just grab whatever I wanted, (like that old school Supermarket game back in the day? Am I dating myself on that?)
    I think this dresser, in the theme of Anthro being Anthro is $1400. yep.

    Happy Tuesday! xoxo

  18. I'm the same way...just when I thought I'm over Anthro, the store vignettes always pulls me in :) I've been there! Seattle Anthro!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oooooh this post...I thought about not even looking because it would just be too painful. I am obsessed with Anthro's door pull collection.

    I'm planning on linking up Friday!

  22. Oh gosh, here I go...

    I have never been to an Anthro store. Honestly, I was only vaguely familiar it existed before I started blogging. Yikes! Shame on me! I'm glad that we don't have one, because it looks amazing!!

  28. OH you are giving me major retail envy!! Beautiful store and my guess is that piece of furniture is super expensive...are we right?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh anthro! so much perfection it is insane!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wish my Anthro was two floors! I think one of my favorite things about the store is their unique displays. I have not seen the one with the toast. OMG!! Was the toast real Michaela?

    Take care,
    Lisa

  33. I have some of those mugs and they are even cuter in person. The best part is the inside is painted with flowers that show from the hooks they hang on!! My one and only Anthropologie purchase!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Heaven is that Anthropolgie downtown, when empty, with a blank check given to you by someone very generous.
    I feel like every time I go in there I never want to leave!
