anthro inspiration

alright it's confession time ladies: i know everyone drools over those anthropologie catalogs. So I had to dedicate at least one post to them. I wanted to try to replicate their look...without the price tag :] Good gosh I love Ross...my dress was eight bucks there. It was such a good deal, that Alyssa even got one haha. In red of course, and no we don't wear them on the same day. 

Someday ladies, I'll be an anthropologie shopper...but for now i'm keepin my wallet happy. I remember my first time in one of their practically perfect stores, little me didn't even know about the existance of anthropologie until I was looking up at the sign on the door. 

I had a witness to my discovery of all things perfectly fashionable. And her name is Jamie: 

And it happened to be on the first day I met her. 

there we were walking around the mall, while my brother - and her boyfriend- was at a church meeting. 
i'm pretty sure she had no idea just who exactly her boyfriend just left her with. 

then i saw it.

holy momma even the sign out front was FAN-CY

i felt like i was Charlie in Willa Wonka's magical candy land. but better...because, well, hello? clothes?
anthro had turned shopping into an art. 
everything was just set up so...perfectly and i was even oohing and ahhing over the doorknobs.
seriously, i was. those doorknobs were gorgeous.
 and i AM buying one for at least one door in my house someday.
Jamie and I had a blast looking at everything; well I think Jamie just was incredibly entertained/slightly scared 
of how excited I was to finally meet anthropologie
luckily my celeste-ness didn't scare her off AND....
now she's my sissy-in-law

guess who'll be helping me pick out my doorknobs someday? haha

This may imply purchasing a dimension bigger which means shoe does not touch plus stroke. Even though a person inside soreness about the shop, generally consider what are the shoe would certainly in good shape by carrying out a painful flare-up.
