We all have our guilty little pleasures. For my husband it’s sneaking in a freshly baked cupcake before work. For my eldest dog, Peanut, it’s pretending to be asleep to evade his 7am walk. Whatever the indulgence, there’s one that I can no longer deny: Anthro stalking.
Sure, I can say that I just walk by and admire their window displays, or go in from time to time just to peruse their sale racks, but who am I kidding?!

So keep your eyes peeled as you’ll be seeing this shape for many months to come! 1. Chic Moss 2. Trop Rouge 3. Mikkat Market 4. Pierogi Picnic 5. Urban Outfitters 6. Fade to Grey
