I was in Anthropologie on Monday - man I love their stuff. If there was a location closer to me, or if I could actually afford to buy anything there, I'd pop in more frequently. My husband bought me an Anthropologie sweater for x-mas and it was just too "crunchy granola" for my taste, so I exchanged it for a nice brown leather purse that was on super sale.
This awesome jewelry stand (or is it a hanger?) caught my eye. I probably would've taken this home with me if it weren't $180. I wish someone could replicate it for me, for like $20. That would be so nice.
Of course I checked out the home furnishings, accessories and the other odds and ends. There is lots of great stuff to buy there.
Check out this awesome doily pattern used as a back board. How freakin' cool is that? I'm seriously thinking I need to make this.
So I left the store with my new leather purse and I was feeling fierce. I wanted to top off my good mood with a nice glass of wine. And since I was in New Jersey, where the liquor stores are cheap and come a dime a dozen, I popped into one to stock up on vino.
When in Jersey, we like to buy wine in bulk. We frequent B.Y.O.B.s and love to have company over so it makes sense to always have a well stocked wine bar. I ended up buying some great wines. How do I know they're great? I don't. What I meant was that I found some great wine labels.
How do you shop for wine? I'm by no means a wine expert, so I don't try to act like one. I don't pay attention to regions, vintage or even know what makes a good wine. But here's what I know - I like colors, art, uniqueness, funky images, textures and shapes. So that's how I shop for wine. If it's intriguing, interesting, draws me in or looks and feels nice then I buy it.
These are some bottles I ended up with. Pepi. La Bastarda. Cats Peeing on a Gooseberry Bush. I love it! I actually don't like cats but I adore the green. And I wonder what Wily Jack is looking at. He has a handsome profile.
