One of my all time favorite shops is Anthropologie. I always find way too many things I just love and can’t seem to live without. From bedding and gifts, to sweaters and jewelry, and absolutely everything gorgeous and wonderful in between.
Skip the dressing rooms and order your clothes online. I love going to small local boutiques to find special pieces but for everyday basics, and when I am buying from a designer I know, it is so much easier to order online. My one tip – if you can’t decide what size to order, buy the piece in two sizes and just return the one that doesn’t work. It is a much better solution than finding out the arm holes are too big, or that even with your Spanx, the waist on those new pants is just a bit smaller than you had hoped.

Home Furnishings & Accessories
The problem with walking into Pottery Barn or Williams-Sonoma Home is that it makes me want to throw out everything I own and start over with new colors and themes every season. Luckily, all it take is a few cute pillows and colorful throw rugs to transform any room.
