March 2010 Anthropologie Catalogue

Almost every gal I know that's in her 20s-30s has a love affair with Anthropologie. And who wouldn't? They have ridiculously cute stuff and everything has that "you will feel unique if you wear this" vibe, even though it's mass produced. Not only that but everything is expensive so it feels super fancy. When my husband really likes something I wear/make, he'll say it looks "very Anthropologie." And then I hug him.

So I went to our almost-totally-moved-out-of-has-very-little-food apartment and lo and behold, there was the new Anthro catalogue in the mail! Yum!

One of the things I love about Anthro is it is so darn cute and styled, and it totally inspires me every time I go into the store or open one of their mailings. It's just great. So I'm pretty much going to show you lovely readers a few of the things that stuck out to me today.

First of all, bathing suits. I love bathing suits even though I totally hate shopping for them or wearing them. Weird? Yes. But I love that they represent summer and fun and when they really start to hit the stores I get all giddy about sunshine. When I was a size 6 I was quite inclined to wear bikinis. Now that I'm not size 6 (ahem) I am much more comfortable in one-pieces, which I think can be a bit more adult anyways. So I was looking at bathing suits and I started to wonder.... could I sew a bathing suit? I have a perfectly good machine. My mom made herself a bathing suit (and one for me!) so I know it can be done. So I'm considering trying it out this summer. Here are two that I am loooving. I'm hoping I can replicate this sort of thing.
