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.

Away I go........ see you soon!

Oceans blue here I come! One more day and I shall be sailing away from everything!!!! And thinking about nothing for 9 days.
Now wouldn't it be grand if they had an Anthropologie on the ship. Now that would be my dream, hey you never know! They really need to get some better places to shop onboard. Can you imagine the amount of money I would spend if I were on board a ship with access to an Anthropologie store for 9 days straight? Scary thought for my wallet.

And so I leave you with shades of blue.....................................

Did you forget to bring something to work today?

Actually I should say 'someone'........... Do you know what today is?
Ok may not be a pet person, so I will tell you.

If you are hearing more than the usual barks and growls coming from your boss' corner office that's because JUNE 23rd is officially TAKE YOUR DOG TO WORK DAY!!!

Of course you probably won't see any pups around most corporate offices, but it would be nice.

PS---- I should also note that ANTHROPOLOGIE is known for being VERY dog friendly!! xoxo

feeling fine friday

(Actually I'm feelin' fat today, but I'm trying to be positive)

I like this Oriel Frame with its look of old carved wood. I think I would place a black and white photo of Grandma in here! Perfect.

I swear my grandma has this baby boom timer! copy cats!

peek in on one gal's shopping spree

Francesca Castagnoli is a senior staff writer at SELF who keeps a blog called 'Off the couch'. She's doing her best to get moving(losing the post baby weight) and make time to be healthy and happy despite her jam-packed schedule.
Read about her most recent shopping spree to the new Anthropologie at the Rockefeller Center.
** I love your finds Francesca!***

Electric Sky dress

Here's another great dress that I would love to take with me... at first glance the material looks like cotton, but if get closer you'll see its SATIN! How nice! I love the bright, cheery color and beautiful pattern.

For the love of giraffes........

This masai tee caught my eye because I LOVE giraffe's. But I'm not sure if I would wear it. Nope, the more I look at it, the more I say, no. It's cute, but its a no go.

PS... my sister went to Disney and brought me back the CUTEST stuffed animal giraffe that I have ever seen... and it's a giraffe that is laying down, which I have never seen. Hmm, maybe he's a lazy giraffe... hey sis, are you trying to tell me something?

Young designers with more options

There was a time when young designers fresh out of school knew their options were New York or NewYork. Now, according to the Boston Globe, 'the universe is expanding.'

'The womenswear company Anthropologie recruits a handful of graduates for internship positions, which sometimes turn into full-time jobs, said design director Johanna Uurasjarvi. Many recruits will choose Philadelphia because it is a more ``manageable" city than New York, she said, and the company appreciates when they do. ``We like having the young talent in here," Uurasjarvi said.

When did humans start wearing shoes....

if you've ever wondered....stroll on over to the science blogs and read on.

I think it had to be a man who created the high heel shoe!

Not into Olive, but I dig the shoe

These sweet olive sandals are really cute.. I don't really like the color green but I would almost make an exception since I like the look of these.

LOVE the labyrinth!!!

I just love this 'labyrinth park loveseat'! I think it is charmingly sweet and beautiful. The wrought iron detail is amazing and I love the extra thick cushions. All around great!
I'm not sure I've mentioned the word LOVE enough here.

I'm wanting this really bad!

I'll have the seaweed please..

.... close up of the jubata seaweed print

Lovely ...

Mama's-to-be want to shop too

I think Anthropologie should have a small section dedicated to mama’s-to-be. I know what your saying. ---that their target market is age 30 to 45.
But as you know, women are having their kiddies much later in life today then it was in the past. Today, right now, I can name 4 women I know personally that are in their mid thirties and pregnant.

I know these woman would love to STILL be able to shop at their favorite store!!
Come on Anthropologie… it’s a hot market… what do you think?

Maybe it could be a limited selection of convertible items... for example tops that tie in the back..
so you could still wear them post baby.
