Lily Sage of Sage Beauty is back for another Blogging Through the City post! In today's guest post, Lily is taking you along for the ride of one of her latest NYC shopping adventures. Keep reading to find out some of her fav finds!
I’m so excited to take all of you fabulous readers along with me to one of my favorite stores for all things gorgeous. Anthropologie is a store that combines beauty, fashion, home decor, and so much more all in one spot. Lucky for you, you don't have to live in NYC to take advantage of this gem either.
I always discover new luxury brands at Anthropologie, in addition to some of my favorites that are always part of my routine. For skincare I always pick up a few items from Mario Badescu when I’m there. The Drying Lotion is one of the most iconic products in the line and is adored by bloggers and beauty editors alike. Using Salicylic Acid and Calamine it will erase breakouts overnight. The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser exfoliates and is great to incorporate into your routine twice a week for a brightening boost and to unclog pores. The Facial Spray is great as a toner and to refresh the skin anytime throughout the day. I always carry this with me when I’m traveling.
The Royal Apothic Hand Cream in Holland Park has a light fresh scent that reminds me of the scent left behind from an impromptu London sunshower. This is great to keep in your purse or next to your bed to soothe dry hands.
During my most recent visit to Anthropologie I discovered Isabey Eau de Parfum in Fleur Nocturne. This sensual floral fragrance is a blend of white peach, jasmine, and vanilla which reminds me of a warm summer night.
Anthropologie has a magical selection of home decor options that will give a colorful and sophisticated touch to every room in your apartment. Whether it’s retro-inspired aprons, unique cookbooks, wine glasses, dishes, candles, or personalized mugs there is something for everyone, and you will have a myriad of choices to inspire you.
As engagement/graduation/wedding season approaches Anthropologie is also a great place to find the perfect gift.
I love giving books as gifts, and as engagement and wedding season is quickly approaching and a fun cookbook or some creative kitchen essentials are memorable presents.
Tea pots are classic but the floral motif gives a fun retro vibe.
These gorgeous coasters immediately caught my eye and will add an unique and chic element to your table.
These gorgeous tumblers also come in green and blue, but pink is my favorite color. They are perfect for summer cocktails but I like to get a bit more creative and use them as candle holders or for my bathroom to hold makeup brushes or even cotton rounds!
As a writer I love collecting planners and blank notebooks, and these were just too irresistible.
As soon as I walked into the store I saw three dresses that I need to add to my wardrobe. I love the clothes at Anthropologie because they range from casual and cozy sweaters to everyday office staples to statement dresses that work season after season. I see the brand as feminine and fashion forward. This is where your boho-glam, inner fashionista can come out in full bloom.
This dress is an incredibly versatile piece because the neutral colors can work all year round, the length is appropriate for any occasion, and it can be dressed up with a statement platform heels and a belt, or dress down with leather jacket.
Neutral blush tones are a big trend for this spring, and the metallic bronze color can easily transition from spring to summer as the evening bag that goes with everything.
I hope you enjoyed this shopping excursion!
