I love my job. As part of a story for work (I am a blogger for this company), I had a mock appointment with a personal shopper at Anthropologie (Anthropologie is part of the Urban Outfitters brand). As a seamstress, I value the handmade and I try to stay away from gluttony, at least when it comes to clothing and wardrobe. But I also appreciate a big name brand who takes strides to construct their clothes beautifully. Anthropologie does this. I remember sitting in meetings when I worked in technical design for the brand (before blogging, I was a part of the technical design/production department) and production, buying, and design agreed to take the hit, accepting a lower margin, so that the back neck seam could be bound or the hem facing a contrast and fun print. Anthropologie is really a great company, inside and out.
I had an amazing time last Friday trying on and photographing my outfits that I had to share. Did I say that I love my job?
