Anthropologie Love

Hi! Hi!

So I mentioned last week I went to Anthropologie for the first time. I first heard of this store last year after watching Cougar Town a couple times. I was in love with Jules’s EAT sign and looked it up. I found their website and I was in LOVE.

Their stuff is so colorful and happy, right up my street. :) Since then I go to their site every so often to dream about owning their stuff or thinking up ways to make my own knock offs like my placemats.

Well, after having a bad week and a required trip to Scottsdale, my husband and I decided t have a looksie in their store.

It’s everything the website is  except you can TOUCH everything!!

Let me tell you, if I had the money I would have gone wild in there. I kept picking up item after item saying, “Oh! I love this!” or “OMG how cute.” or “Awww, so pretty. ” Lol

Normally I ogle their kitchen items but I took a peek at their dresses and AH! LOVE!!!! I asked my husband if I could buy a dress for every 15 pounds I lose and after thinking about it for a bit he said YES!! So, it’s a deal and I am working my bum off. Literally! Haha!

Quite the motivation don’t you think?!

Dreaming wasn’t all I did though. I think my hubby was sympathetic to the bad week I had and was okay with me making a small purchase.

I was super excited to pick a couple of mugs. They had so many adorable ones I kept switching back and forth because I just couldn’t make up my mind. haha

I ended up buying the green one up at the front on this photo. Isn’t it cute?!

And this one!!

I love them so much. I’ve been using them for EVERYTHING! haha. Water, juice, coffee, even cereal. Lol I’m a dork, I know but I want to use them ALL the time. They are so pretty!

They also had a clearance table and I picked up two candles. They’re discontinued now so I know I won’t be able to purchase them again but they smell SO good.

What’s great about these is that I will be reusing the container when the candle burns out.

I can’t wait to go back. There are so many things I want from this store. I just hope I have at least $25 with me when I do, so I don’t come back empty handed.

Anthropologie is on the expensive side for me but their stuff is amazing. They will definitely be my go-to splurge.

Have you been to Anthropologie before?! You Love it? Hate it? or Leave it?

Hope you have an AMAZING week! :)

      Yes, many of their item will always be on my wishlist. It is nice to own something though. But I have to be honest, if a mug breaks it will hurt; cuz I know the first thing on my mind will be “Dammit! there goes $12.” :/ lol

    Oh I would love to go to an actual store! I’ve never looked up their locations though, I guess I’ll have to do that. I’ve always just heard of them through their website.

      Yes, it was pretty great. I love all their stuff. The only downside is that you’ll want to buy everything! lol At least I did. haha

    I’ve never been there, but have heard about it on many blogs- I guess I need to check them out online! Love the mugs- would’ve had a hard time choosing one. Good luck with the weight loss- hope you get several dresses:)

    Go ahead, laugh. :) I am probably the only person that has not been to anthropologie- cute stuff though, perhaps I will have to check them out.

      I still visit their website as often as before but now I want to visit their store more often. I guess it’s a good thing it’s so far away otherwise I would be there all the time. lol

    Karla, we go to Anthropologie all the time and rarely buy anything unless we have a gift certificate. I like to buy knobs from the sale table and I have gotten my girls to get me volcano candles as gifts. We did once buy a comforter there as a birthday gift for my daughter, but earlier today I went online to see if they had any pillows for my couch and oh. my. gosh. Check out their pillows online and be amazed. Every time I saw one I liked it was $128.00 or $168.00 and throws were over $200. I saw something that was $668 and it was just a thing you would never dream could cost so much. Luckily they have kitchen items that are expensive but attainable here and there. Worth going and checking the sales for sure.

      Their Knobs are great. I really want to buy some but I think it may be fun to paint my own. I haven’t decided what to do yet.
      I know what you mean about the pillows and throws. They are amazing but gosh they are way too expensive. I’ve seem some great knockoff of their pillows that I may try. I think I’m out of luck with their throws. It’s crazy the prices of some of their items. Have you seen their art stuff?? INSANE!!!And not in a good way. I saw this recycled metal “sculpture” for OVER TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!!! CRAZY!

      I think that is why I lean more toward their kitchen stuff. Prices seem more reasonable in that section :)

    I don’t about this store but I am very interested to now. I love the teacup you picked. Your husband is a sweetie. Hope you recovered from your bad week. Thanks so much for sharing.
