I went to Anthropologie today to finally use my birthday coupon and gift cards. I didn't find a whole lot, but I got this sweater and a bottle of perfume. I wanted this sweater since I saw it in the Philly store, but it left fuzz on my clothes, so I wasn't sure. I'm hoping once it has been washed it will stop shedding. Honestly, I am pretty disappointed in the clothing there right now...too many ruffles and short sleeves sweaters. Also, while I was there I noticed several very disturbing little signs. In a section with beautiful cups, saucers, plates and drinking glasses just begging for me to take them home, there were pieces of crisp white cardstock printed in typewriter font the following words, "Warning: These products may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm." Eeeww! Why would they sell products for eating and drinking that may contain lead?!! I'm used to seeing these for crystal vases, and decorative items, but I figured by this point all the higher end stores were not carrying items used for eating and drinking that contained lead. Now, I'm all worried because I bought some wine glasses there a few months ago and now I'm afraid to drink out of them!
