But I digress. My love has always been a hard one due to the cost of Anthro. I know you have to pay big for big style, but come on! The sales room is great and the online shopping helps me keep on top of what goes on sale (btw, the sales items are updated every tuesday.) However, it still doesn't feel like the best deal when you buy something on "sale" that costs more than $50. Luckily, my amazing mother-in-law just sent me to a site that is so very Anthro like, but way less in price. It is a vintage inspired store with some handmade stuff as well as other things that really made me excited to look at. Here is the link to Ruche. I know there are so many other stores like this, but I just don't know about them... yet. After enjoying the awesomeness of this store, let me know of any other online stores that you love.
Until then, my heart will always belong to Anthropologie. I will always wander around the store trying not to drool, while Lincoln sits in one of their many beautiful chairs reading one of their uber trendy book about Audrey Hepburn or birds. As I dream of one day purchasing without guilt. Ah, dreams.
