What Works For You? (In Pursuit of Pretty Things Anthro Event Planning!)

Hi everyone! Hope you're all doing well. I apologize for being absent here the last few days. I've been caught between some interesting and challenging work as well as some family stuff (nothing bad - just busy, if you know what I mean), which has meant that I've had very little time or energy left at the end of the day to come up with good content for you.

But that doesn't mean I've forgotten you!

Today, I got a chance to chat with the lovely Fashion Valley Anthropologie staff, and we're on for an In Pursuit of Pretty Things Anthro shopping event, here in San Diego! I can't be more excited, as I'm really looking forward to meeting all of you - but to make sure that we pick a date that works for as many as possible, we're letting you weigh in on when it should take place.

We're definitely planning on a Sunday afternoon in June. Let us know which Sunday will work best for you, by voting in the poll in the sidebar to the right. Please mark each Sunday that you'd be available to attend. Once we choose a date, we'll issue the invitation officially, with exact date and times and how you can RSVP.

Edit: Oh, and for you OC/LA folk who voted for doing something in Orange County, we're planning on coordinating an event for that area too. Just hang tight - we haven't forgotten you, I promise! ^_^

June can't come soon enough! Here are some things I'm eyeing (and hoping will have hit sale for that super fun day!)

Garden Accoutrement Bag


And this WHOLE outfit:


What about you? What are you thinking you might want to pick up, in the company of your fellow Anthro-lovers?

  2. Oh fun! I was hoping for a Saturday but it will be hard to turn down a blogging event so close to my house! Especially since so few are fashion-oriented!

  3. Yes, I was thinking Saturday too, but that's the store's busiest day, so it'd be hard for them to be hosting us when the store is already busy. I hope you can make it, Natalie!

  4. We had enough of a response in the initial poll to merit two separate events, so after the first one in San Diego, we're hoping to do one in an OC location too. =)

  10. Yeesss...I realized that, but it looks like that's the day most available so far, haha. At least the event will be in the afternoon, so maybe people can do a Father's Day brunch or dinner? Or, do the dads in their lives a break and just provide an afternoon of peaceful man-time? ^_-
