I don’t really order so much from catalogues so much as rip out pages for inspiration boards. Home decor, fashion, home decor in clothing catalogues, doesn’t matter. If I like it, I rip it out.
Have I already told you that Anthropologie is a block from my work? One block. I thought it would be more trouble than it actually is, but every so often my credit card statement reminds me why I don’t need to be shopping there. While perusing the sale rack one particular lunch break I grabbed a lovely blue silky maxi dress at half off. Score! Beautiful fit, gorgeous fabric. I couldn’t believe my luck. Later that evening, I was online and, oh, what? The Antrhopologie website? Why hello! There was my dress and photo from the catalogue. I pulled the catalouge from my magazine pile and carefully examined the dress on the model. It had not spoke to me, as it was still intact.
This whole year I’ve been pushing myself to try on clothes that aren’t particularly my style, and here just another example of when it works.
