Anthropologie Spring Fashion Show

The late afternoon sun glowed through the city streets as my sister and I headed to our first Spring fashion show at Anthropologie. Sirens sounded, cars honked, windows glistened up into the sky and the sound of excited chatter filled our senses while we waited in anticipation for the store to open its doors. Inspiration runs high on any given visit to an Anthro location, so I was tickled pink to see what would be in store for this particular visit.

It felt like a secret club. Only the select few who happened to be informed of the evening's festivities would be allowed to enter. Upon check-in, we quickly went upstairs to secure seats before making our way to the cupcake table. That's right, I said cupcake table! To my surprise and delight the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes glimmered with luster powdered frosting.

Anthro reigns with unexpected colors and patterns. The show, short but sweet, highlighted many of the seasons new bomber jackets which are perfect for the Spring weather when still need a little extra layering. Dresses walking down the row that make me wonder why I've never been a dress person and if maybe it's time to start. Perhaps one of my favorite accessories found, pink sunglasses. Anthro always has cute glasses at affordable prices and as a mom of two little kids, I like that I don't stand to lose much other than a fancy pair of sunglasses if one of my kids breaks them.

I was especially inspired by the paper flowers that entranced the store window displays and all the pink art inside. In my recent quest to get out of the house and do more things, I love finding unexpected activities (especially one's that are free). Local stores often host events and many have them posted somewhere online or you could ask a store employee. At Anthro you can subscribe to updates specifically about local store events so I know I won't miss out the next time something comes around.
