An obsession, have to have it, definitely want to live there! A gal who spends way too many lunch hours at Anthropologie--browsing, making my wish list, inspired, charmed, teased, of course I have to leave with something.. anything! I can go back to work, I've had my fix.

Rumor has it...UO coming to Monclair

I saw this on Baristanet......
They said as read on 2-16's Montclair times that Anthropologie's sister store Urban Outfitters is coming to their town!!!! The lease is signed on the space at 16 South Park Street, previously used by furniture store, D. Marie's, according to Neal Richards, VP of Vanguard Realty. Supposedly opening in the summer! It would be the first UO in New Jersey!

But I would wear this!

light-as-leaves shell

Honestly.. I would have to wear a very thin tee underneath...I don't know if my belly is ready to be on display. Maybe after I finish my Pilates class!

Could you.. would you

I don't know if I could or would wear this! But for some reason it catches my eye.. maybe because it looks like Granny's sofa.. just kidding, this is nicer than her sofa.
If it is up your alley.. you'll like the price ..was $248. now $64.95

Actually, I just came to the conclusion that I CANNOT wear this. What was I thinking!
Moment of insanity. I need another mug of coffee.

A 25-Bagger in Five years

'Can anyone really earn 25 times their money in just five years? That computes to an annual return of 90% per year, turning a $40,000 investment into $1 million by December 2010. It strikes veteran investors as unfathomable.

But turn back the clock five years to December 2000, and observe with me Urban Outfitters, then valued at $170 million. Today, it's worth $4.3 billion. Yep, the stock has risen 25 times in value in just five years.'

Read on Motley Fool (Feb 10th)

AP Interview: Urban Outfitters Richard Hayne

For your morning reading.....on

'Over the next few years, the retailer hopes to launch two more types of stores. One concept that's being floated is a Victoria's Secret-like store for women 35 to 55 years old, Hayne acknowledged.'

bet you didn't know... or care to know either

My favorite animal is the Giraffe!!! I am amazed by them.. could watch them forever. Well maybe for quite a long time. Don't worry you won't find hundreds of them in my home...I'm actually very discriminate in picking out my giraffes. They have to be perfect!!! So please don't start buying me everything giraffe. Only my crazy mind could determine what the heck a perfect giraffe is!
