Come Armageddon, and the only choice I have is to hide out in a store, I would pick Anthropologie. Come to think of it, I wouldn’t wait for Armageddon…I would move in tonight, if they’d let me. Hmmm. I wonder how good their closing procedures are. I have loved this store ever since I walked into their flagship store in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, oh so many moons ago. I was on a business trip, and this store was a few minutes away from Market street…and I walked in and I was in love. And I have stayed in love all through the years, purchasing clothes, shoes, home accessories, gifts for staff, paging through their catalogs which look like art house books…The beauty of the clothing they carry? Like jewels, they are precious, seem so individual and eclectic…and no matter my size (which has ranged through the size spectrum over the years, pre- and post-kids!), I am always able to find something to fit me, which will also look divine. Anthro has inspired me to veer out of my comfort range in clothing…find my inner hippie, yet keep it professional enough for the corporate career I find myself in. And I never get rid of my Anthro clothing. Can’t bring myself to do it.
I recently walked into the local branch in Roseville and left with more jewels for my collection. One day, I hope to introduce my daughter to this mecca.
And watch her eyes widen the way mine did…the first time.
