The Perks Of Having A Killer Day Job: Part 3

anthropology personal shopperI 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?

    Gorgeous! Anthropologie is my favourite shop and I am so lucky that we have one here in Edinburgh. Unfortunately I can’t afford to shop there very often, but I have my brother trained to buy me gift vouchers for birthday and christmas! 🙂

    Gah! Your job sound so amazing! I love anthropologie. There isn’t any store in Ireland but I’m willing to pay the shipping every now and then because I just love that the clothes are that little bit different

    I do love Anthro’s style! I have to admit that I’ve used them more for my own sewing inspiration than anything else, because they’re generally out of my budget, but I did recently get to splurge on a dress from there! (A friend who’s getting married is using a dress from there for her bridesmaid dresses, and I’m excited because it really is wear-again!)

    That would be just way too much fun. It’s nice to hear that not all big companies are greedy money mongers!
