If I had endless amounts of money, I would live in Cherry Creek and lose myself in Anthropologie

When I need a quick break from staring at numbers and printing off calculation tapes (boy, does my life sound dull or what...and yet, I'm actually a sucker for it), I tend to find myself typing I love the style of Anthropologie, the colors and the general design of their website, but I'm rather frugal and Anthro prices are rather the opposite, so I lust after pieces far more often than I purchase. In fact, this summer is the first time that I've actually bought anything from Anthropologie. I'm happy to say that I'm the proud owner of 2 shirts purchased on sale, the most amazing crab mug and a gorgeous candlestick holder (thanks, Mom!).

This past weekend my Mom and I decided to take advantage of having 3 days off and went to Denver for a little shopping followed by an afternoon at the Denver Zoo. I don't have any of the Zoo pics uploaded quite yet, so that will have to wait for a post of its own, but I can assure you that it was a fabulous, albeit hot, time!

Cherry Creek Mall has long been one of my favorites in Denver. As I've blogged about before, I love the Cherry Creek neighborhood of Denver, and would kill to live there...but, that would take a heck of a lot more money than I will probably ever make. Oh well, that's what dreams are for. Anyway, shopping at Cherry Creek is always a fun time, and this past weekend didn't disappoint. A couple of shirts were purchased, some jewelry, shorts for Mom and 2 new items from Anthropologie. Now, normally when we're down at Cherry Creek my Dad is with us (we're big on family outings) and he can get whiney when Mom and I are shopping, so I usually just run in and out of Anthro. Not this time. This time Mom got to experience the wonder that is Anthropologie and I think she finally understands my lusting. We browsed the sale racks (remember, I'm frugal), made our selections and headed to the fitting rooms. Of course, just about everything was cute, but the first top I tried on was The One. It's beautiful with a ruffle detail around the neckline, fits my bust well and isn't too short; plus, I can wear it under a cardigan, making it perfect for Fall. I had to have it! It was more than I would normally spend on a top, but when it's right, it's right...that, and I knew I would regret not owning this lovely top.

(the white top with black detail in front is the one I bought)

Along with the top, I found a sweet, vintage-looking candlestick holder and countless other things that I wanted but didn't purchase. Just being in that store makes my heart smile.


  1. LOVE the top and can't wait to see you sporting it!
    I used to live near the store in Boston, but I have never been on their site! Probably best I stay away :)

  2. Yet another thing we just HAPPEN to be blogging soulmates on. :) BEAUTIFUL top. Worth every penny.


Thanks for stopping by!
