Ethnic beauty is just a couple of word that can describe Anthropologie. I would say I was first introduced to this store maybe two years ago. Although I've been going to their online catalog, I received my first paper catalog in February. It took my breath away because its art, and they spend a lot money on those catalogs to make people like me drop their jaws to the floor because of the essence of beauty they are able to capture in each and every image. I will always have a special place in my heart for Anthropologie!
That February catalog is where I became obsessed with the natural beauty of Ajuma Nasenyana, a Kenyan model. Her skin complection, her broad shoulders and bone structure are just a few things that made me look twice. She can look good in any color! I love the orange top!
I see these beaded fan earrings looking real good with my "sister-do!"I love the color, the texture and sparkle!
The beauty of these earring is that they will really look good on anybody because of how bold they are! They are very intricate and complex, and even though they are expensive, they look it too!
Just Beneath Bag. Very fitting, I think its woven leather and it comes in black or white. What is not to love....!
What do you think about this. The Spectrum Caftan. On anyone...it it would become a piece of water color art with you acting as the canvas. Its a blousy silk material. I love the neckline and the draping.
Flower, Twist, and Geo. As described, they are sculpted of resin from the Mopa Mopa tree and colored with mineral dyes before being pressed onto a layer of smooth wood! Each one is original! i love them all equally, so I do not have a favorite.
One day I am going to dress an table with something or everything from Anthro! I am loving the Ikebana napkins and tablecloth in all its cultural beauty. I go weak at the knees for bird motifs and paired with ethnic patterns and colors, I just go limp all over! They are just so dang delicate and pretty, these Continental Bird Plates!
This is fun. I actually just saw one of these hanging outside of a local bookstore/coffee shop a couple weeks ago (should of took a pic)! It was no the Knotted Melati Hanging Chair shown here, but it was pretty close. I just think this a perfect example of form follows function! Its a seat and hanging 3D art!
These embroidered pillows are so vintage chic! The colors are so right and look at the delicate loop fringe.
It is the Idling Iguana and the Iridescent Plumage pillows. Just one of these could make a great conversation piece in any room!
Shanti Paisley Rug just took the cake! I need that runner really bad, I mean really bad!
Mum shower curtains or some Dalilah Bedding. I love this idea of multi-layered fabric sculptures. It such a simple way to amplify what would be ordinarily simple.
