Do You Believe There Are Treasures In The Ocean?

cardigan: mom's hand-me-down * blouse: Wilfred * skirt: American Apparel * tights: HUE * boots: Hunter
During my trips to New York I would visit a store called Anthropologie in Soho. It is a sister company to Urban Outfitters, kind of like Urban's hippie older sister. It was an absolutely lovely store full of apparel and furniture worthy of calling art. I haven't visited New York in about two years, and have missed that store dearly. But just two days ago the first Canadian store opened and I went right away - the most beautiful store I have ever seen, and the largest. I spent 2 hours in there and revisited the store today, purchasing many beautiful items that I will covet for a long time to come. Definitely my outfits in the near future will include these items for you to see. This store matches my personality and style absolutely flawlessly. If I could live in any store, it would be that one. I would make it my home and live in peace within it.

If you are in the mood for beauty you may watch this lovely video. The music is by Angus & Julia Stone, a band I am currently adoring.

awww thanks for the lovely comment.

I have never been to Anthropologie, but I always wondered what it was like. I have to get down to the States now and chekc it out.
I love your outfit, especially the rainboots. My best friend is dying to get Hunter boots. lol. What colour are yours btw? They look black, but they could be navy blue or dark green.

Hi! In answer to your questions, the pendants are all second hand and from various sources (car boot sales, ebay, etsy, antique fair).

Car boots are the only thing we have here in the UK that sort of match your thrift stores! It's basically a set location where people show up at a set time with their cars full of the stuff they don't want anymore and sell it with no middle man involved.

I didn't do much to the images, I messed around with the colours a little on Preview and then just used paintbrush and did some slap dash cut and paste work with some images I found on the web- just search 'vintage photo border'.

I upload my pictures from Flickr using the html code they give you for the picture. If I upload them with blogger they're always too small for me.

And finally, yes, I'd love to swap links!

I love Anthropologie, I wish we had it here in the UK.

I would like to move into Anthropologie as well--but since I can't afford the clothes I probably can't afford the rent either!

There is a tunnel from the basement of the building straight to Anthropologie. I'm not even joking. I love that place and spend way too much money there. Glad to see that it's made its way up north as well!
