“Fashion is so often presented in the culture as a thing of froth, which, of course, it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with care and a sense of values.” - Anna Wintour

I finally had time to head on over to the Anthropologie that opened up in my city. I practically threw myself through the entrance, I was so excited.
And it was lovely! The second you walk in, you're greeted with a delicious waft of sweet aroma, and it just makes you happy to be inside - as opposed to Forever 21 (sorry F21 lovers!) where the store smells like cheap plastic-y "leather" and overripe clothing. That's one of the reasons why I avoid Forever 21 like the plague; if a store makes you physically repulsed, it's not worth it. Oh, am I ever mean! But anyway, back to Anthropologie.
The layout was magnificently decorative and the atmosphere was entirely welcoming. As for the clothing, every single piece had a uniqueness about it that embodies Anthropologie's distinct free-spirited, Bohemian lifestyle.
Although not every single piece of clothing fit my personal style, I appreciated each one for its fascinating design and exceptional quality.
The most memorable thing that I found was this beautiful chiffon blouse that I actually first saw on a salesperson:
Once I came out, it was clear to me that you don't go into Anthropologie to simply shop, you go into Anthropologie to experience.
