I might cry.
I just found a blog called Anthropologie Addict, with pictures and links to every catalog. Ever. That you can flip through like a real catalog. Any time. *Please excuse me. I haven’t been happier about earthly things since the farmer’s market.*
Anthropologie. It sounds silly, but when I just need a little beauty in my day, I look at Anthropologie catalogues, or the collage from the May catalog above my desk. An actual trip to the actual, real, tangible Anthropologie excites me to no end.
You might think that’s odd, since it’s just a store. But the catalogues are masterpieces of soothing greys, blues, browns… models in vintage-y clothes walking through the English countryside or rocking milkmaid braids in an old barn…
Measuring cups that look like flowers, notebooks that look like your old leatherbound copy of Sense and Sensibility, Italian leather boots and ivory cable-knit cardigans…
Yes. Yes, I am Sebastian Flyte, the aesthete. It’s nice to meet you.
