Fantasy shopping spree

Silently in the night it snowed again. I woke up to a chilly breeze and cancelled trains. My plans blown out of the water.
After a round of cheese burgers in a local bar the icy rain stopped and the slush started to melt away long enough for me and my friends to take a drive out of town for a few hours. I am feeling good about only spending a little money. So once home I went on an imaginary spree at the ever beautiful Anthropologie. Whenever I visit the store I am in awe of all the beauty under one roof but often leave with nothing. It's easier to pick out a selection online where you can't be overwhelmed. I like this outfit for meeting friends when the spring sun starts to appear and you feel its okay to chance going outdoors with no hat or coat.

Enjoy the rest of your week imaginary or real, ooh and thanks for all the admiring comments about my sisters photo in my last post, she is super happy.

I have the same Anthropologie lament. I love everything, and so I buy nothing.

I do the same when I shop in Anthropologie. I spend hours browsing and then in the end, end up in the sale section and usually take home one small item.

I visited Anthropologie for the first time the other week and wow, I wanted everything in there! I love that white bag x

I would take one of those white handbags. Great design.

I've only been lucky enough to visit twice - once in the US and once in Regent St.

Oddly, I had no problem spending oodles of money on either occasion.

What an outfit—a sumptuous day spent feeling lovely.

I like this idea of a fantasy shopping spree - all I can afford at the moment. I went to anthropologie yesterday. I was so disappointed. Not by the goods on display - it was heavenly - but the prices! Eek!!!! What a wonderful place to immerse yourself in though and I loved how they write your name on the fitting room door!
