...You had me at 'hello.'
I was never that big a fan of Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters' older, girlier sister, in the states, but after spending a half hour in their new Regent Street store yesterday, I'm head over heels for it. I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't get you out of my head. Why didn't I notice you before, casting your fancy, frilly glances my way? How did I not notice that all the while you were standing there, silently, calmly at the end of the mall, you were exactly the store for me?
It began with an accidental embrace: I dashed in to escape the raindrops, and found myself diving into gorgeous mohair sweaters, embellished bags, delicious fabrics, magpie chandeliers, touchable teacups, and beautiful vintage jewelry. The giant papier maché narwhal suspended from the ceiling was only one of your many charms. Sadly, I had to leave to meet a friend for lunch and did not have the chance to come home with any treats, but oh Anthropologie... I'll be back. Don't forget me.
