SPOTTED: Pretty Things

Sunday, January 23, 2011

It's never just another stop in a shopping trip.
It's an experience--
a ramble through an art gallery, a stroll through a designer's mind,
a plethora of vintage-inspired fabrics made up in shapes relevant to today--
it's a thousand and one moments of inspiration.
You always walk out of the store with the sense that it's okay to be the individual you are, to pull together the pieces you do, because the store itself has its own personality.
It's not like the other ones you visit, not well-arranged and immaculate in its presentation.
This store goes out of its way to color outside the lines.
It's a place where you can be yourself, by yourself, even at the risk of someone thinking you're completely uncool.
But that always comes back around, doesn't it?
Because the individuals who are truest to themselves never fail to be the coolest of all. =)


  1. Anthropolgy just opened up here in Calgary, Canada and it has made me so happy to just be in there and know that I can go whenever I want without a plane ticket!

  2. Um, yes, I have a small obsession with anthropologie. They give me fashion envy
