Every woman has her own favourites.
Favourite stores for clothes, for books, for home items, for shoes.
It was love at first sight. In 2007, I was walking down West Broadway in SoHo in New York and I bumped into it. Its windows dragged me in.
I felt instantly a sweet euphoria. Colours, fabrics with a vintage feel, a romanticism in the air. As a bonus, the beautiful aromas from creams and candles permeated the interior.
When I stepped into Anthropologie I realised what a concept store really means. It’s a store that offers shoppers multiple types of items with one centralized theme: Anthropos (Greek for human). Everything is about creating a personalized shopping experience.
Quality Tip: Do not forget to always check the labels inside the clothes, when you want to buy something. Choose cotton, organic fabrics, silks (viscose etc.), and try to to avoid synthetic fabrics such as polyester, elastane. Be eclectic. Invest in quality over quantity. Less is more. We are what we wear.
If you have a petite figure you will find an entire section just for you at Anthro!
Secret Tip: Anthro has sales all year round! If some items are pricey, you will have the chance to buy them at lower prices.
