Anthropologie is coming to Little Rock

And you know what that means?

I will have the cutest apartment – and the saddest bank account – in the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD!  It was only a couple of weeks ago that I first set foot in an actual Anthropologie store while on my vacation in Dallas.  My lovely friend, Lyddy (whom I was visiting), had given me a gift card for my birthday and I went in ready to spend.  I tried on outfit after outfit but found something wrong with everything I put on.  Why?  Because I knew where I really wanted to be spending my money!   My house!

I made a handful of very cute, very frivolous purchases, including brightly colored tea towels and beautiful coasters:

I left that day hoping I’d made the perfect choices (I still feel confident), not knowing how long it would be before I could visit an Anthropologie store again.  While living in Little Rock has its ups and downs, the shopping here is particularly dismal.  However, not a week after my return from Dallas, a friend emailed me to let me know that she’d found a posting for employment at the soon-to-be Little Rock location of Anthropologie!


I’d heard that rumor back in the fall, but never believed it, so I could not have been more thrilled to hear that it was, in fact, true!

I’m almost tempted to put all new apartment shopping on hold until I can completely deck my place out in Anthropologie homewares.  The thought of waiting till summer seems hard, but it will be here before we know it! 

Here are a few treasures I’d pick up if I have the patience to wait it out:
