Throughout this week I’ll be focussing very much on all the pretty things I’ve been seeing from various brands, but today I thought I’d start with Anthropologie.
Gorgeous colours, fabrics, prints, patterns and aromas, (LOVE those candles) hit me as I walked in.. The Anthro experience is an emotional one and always seems to attack all my senses. It speaks to me in a way that other brands just can’t seem to crack. I’m a little bit in love with Anthropologie… and I know I’m not on my own.
Here’s a little Instagram vid I took of some of the stunning accessories..

My very good friend Miss Magpie Fashion Spy was there too, so we sat down, had a cup of tea (thank you Anthropologie – even your mugs are heavenly) and she did a spot of doodling. I showed her a couple of my favourite pieces and this is what she did. What a clever Magpie..
|In case you were wondering – this is exactly what my legs look like.|

And here she is at work…
Anthropologie have created a beautiful, soft feminine collection, full of pretty dresses, Summer whites, embroidery and adornments… a kind of ‘world traveller’ collection, with a modern European feel, packed with lush fabrics, Scandi brands and oodles of tassles and trims.. and a playful collection of jump suits, denims, (gorgeous, soft denim! Ding ding!) and culottes, in a Spring colour palette of indigos and blues.

I loved seeing what’s coming up around the corner in Anthroland and I may have already started writing my wish list… such a pretty place to be is Anthropologie. I wonder if they’d notice me if I pitched a tent and set up camp in their Regent St store… don’t tell them. It’s an excellent plan.
