Exams are finally over, final projects are turned in, hearts were broken and drama was had. I'm happy to say that I spent the past (almost) 24 hours being a lazy young person. There was a short time where I worked, but for the most part, laziness!
And it was glorious.
Today me, W, and two of our friends decided to go to Eastview Mall, just for the heck of it. Two things I love about Eastview. : Yogenfruz. It is a yuppie frozen yogurt stand with (usually) sour-tempered employees who go to private school and hate their families. At least, today it was.
The second, and perhaps most important one, is ANTHROPOLOGIE.
I love the anthropologie store. I love walking around and looking at the expensive clothes, not touching them because it's like a museum of glorious clothing, if I were to touch them then the oils from my skin would stay on them forever, and then sediment will be unable to deposit there, and people that want to come and see them in the future will never be able to! Or is that a limestone formation?
But really, I do love that store. It really inspires me, mostly because I could make things like the stuff in anthropologie! It wouldn't be that hard! Ever been to a paint-your-own pottery studio? Corning NY has one and I'm totally going on a date with W over break to make some dishware :)
Here are some other goods that I thought "Oh, man, I could make that myself!!"
|I could probably make this BETTER than Anthropologie... This looks kind of shoddy, for $15...|
|The cardboard stumps just made me think of W, wouldn't that be a cool stop motion set?|
|And some gloves from Charlotte Russe. They're really chic, but if I knit myself a pair I would make glittens.|
So what do you think? Do you get inspired by stuff you see in stores or magazines? Do you buy it, or go and craft it? What will happen when the crafty look goes out of style!?
