I first discovered Anthropologie when living in the States about a decade ago. My friend Holly and I made day trips to Boston and I fell in love with the beautiful fabrics and books and homewares. Sadly, the clothing is as unaffordable now as it was then. I'm sure some people will pay £415 for day dress made of low-grade fabric and workmanship, but not I. The books are great though, and there are some nice jewels, and I'm sure a few other bits, but I got there just before closing time so didn't get much time to look around. What IS great and unmissbale and worth going to visit the store for, if you hadn't guessed by now, is the living wall. it's just stunning and these pic don't do it justice. Anyway, if you're in the area pop by and check out the wall.
