anthropologie accessories-only store.

Anthro knows how to make my heart beat just a little faster...

I had a friend blog about this a few weeks ago, but I can't get over it. This has to be the best idea ever. I am so obsessed with all Anthro's jewelry.

The 1,400-square-foot accessories-only store is in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The store opened on October 29th. Shoes will account for half the products in the store. The store will also include, handbags, scarves, belts, costume jewelry, fine jewelry and, for the first time, estate and antique jewelry, including one-of-a-kind brooches and engagement rings, and one of a kind pieces and reworked vintage items.

Anthropologie's co-president describes the new store, “It will be the equivalent of going down the rabbit hole and finding a magical world with more of what she loves...Tactile and rich–wonderful to shop and ponder.”

The design will be similar to the eclectic nature of Anthropologie stores, including a gallery-like setting with custom concrete tile floor, low ceilings and a fumed oak floor. Inside, an entire wall is covered in a collage of reclaimed doors, while a 20-foot-long French cabinet will anchor the back wall.

I can only imagine...until then I will pray the next store will be somewhere near me.
