Anthropologie

Anthropologie EdinburghAnthropologie Edinburgh
On Tuesday Anthropologie were kind enough to invite me along to the opening of their shop on George Street for cocktails and a snoop around. I've never actually had the pleasure of visiting Anthroplogie before, but from the online shop and the blog posts I've read about their events I knew I was going to be smitten.

The shop itself was a veritable feast for the eyes, the attention to detail was almost overwhelming! The visual merchandising was dreamy, with old tatty treasures mixed amidst the shiny finished off with fresh flowers and even toast. My favourite (the picture didn't quite turn out) was an old pommel horse used as a bookshelf!! Every corner, jar and drawer held something delightful, my mental wish list quickly ran off the page.

Adam and I wandered around entranced, sipping Whisky Mac's with apple and trying to take everything in. Then we came across two dapper chaps from Mhor , shucking oysters. I'm not really one for sea creatures (food) but with Adam goading me and a little encouragement from the Tom Lewis, the head chef at Mhor, I tried one with a whiskey shallot dressing and a wee squeeze of lemon. Low and behold, it was delicious, salty and refreshing not at all what I expected. I even went back for more.

If you are in Edinburgh this Sunday, pop in because Anthropologie are holding another event. I'm especially looking forward to Catherine Zoraida casting trinkets in silver. Aswell as ticking a few items off that wish list! Thank you, Anthropologie for such a lovely evening.

  6. I've only bought from Anthropologie probably once because it's so expensive but it's always fun to wander there anyway. Lovely photos.

  8. I visited my first Anthropologie store in KC last year. I've always loved the catalog, but I, too, was so impressed by the merchandising. Beautiful details. I wish I could actually afford to shop there.

    I love your dress! Super cute.
