I first discovered Anthropologie when I was living in New York in the late nineties. I loved visiting the store in Soho at the weekends and would undoubtedly always come away with something, from a pretty cardigan to a vintage inspired teacup.
When I moved back to England I was lucky enough to continue shopping there on work trips to the US. So you can imagine my delight when they opened a store in the UK.
