And there were so many great quotes, I had to include a few (okay more than a few):
There are no ugly women, only lazy ones.
No gold digging for me...I take diamonds.
A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.
Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.
Cock your hat-angels are attitudes.
You can always tell what kind of person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you.
Do you know what these are? Manolo Blahnik mary janes. I thought these were an urban shoe myth!
You don't really know a woman until she writes you a letter.
While clothes may not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on her self-confidence-which, I believe, does make the woman.
-May Kay Ash
A woman who does not wear perfume has no future.
Where should one wear perfume? Wherever one wants to be kissed.
I've always thought of the T-shirt as the alpha and the omega of the fashion alphabet.
Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.
We must never confuse elegance with snobbery.
-Yves Saint Laurent
Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you want the rainbow you've got to put up with the rain.
My mother was right. When you've got nothing left all you can do is get into some silk underwear and start reading Proust.
Adventure is worthwhile in itself.
I've been meaning to write a post on Anthropologie for a while now. I sort of always bashed Anthropologie. For one reason, I can't bring myself to refer to it as "Anthro." Even though I have no problem with "Nordies" or "Bloomies", I hate hate hate "Anthro." I put it in the same category as "I.F." (slang for Idaho Falls, for all you non-BYUI grads.)
But despite the annoying nickname, I feel like it's beyond ridiculous how expensive the store is. Really Anthropologie? $200 for a cardi? Who do you think you are? Bergdorf? Even though there are some decent prices in the sale room, I couldn't get past the ridiculous full price items (this does not include household items.)
Lastly, my big gripe is that I feel like so many items in the store are actually ugly, but consumers are so blinded by Anthro to notice. I swear some of these things could be sold at Walmart and these shoppers would turn their noses up at them.
Welllllllllll, I've been meaning to come forward and officially admit I've been buying more and more at Anthropolgie. Lately I've been finding more and more things I like (in the sales room!) and I've had to eat my words because I sort of really do love the store, and sometimes secretly wish someone would give me a gift card so I could sort of rationalize paying full price for some of the adorable dresses that aren't on sale.
However, recently Elise posted this, and I have to revert back to point number three. They do sell some ugly stuff...
