Fashion Island, Newport Beach

In the midst of running errands, my TO DO list took me to Newport Beach, CA today, where my favorite outdoor shopping experience is located, Fashion Island.

Fashion Island has the best of the best boutiques, from David Yurman, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales Home, Trina Turk, Gearys Por Donna, Bose and numerous quality boutiques....and the usual anchor stores of Restoration Hardware, Shabby Chic, and Anthropologie.

{Anthropologie's entry display; outside display of hay "sofa"! Luv this!}

While here, I stopped dead in my tracks. The design master team at Anthropologie are in a league of their own. Their creative minds work up eccentric, out-of-the-box displays....I love their wild eye.
Reminds me of Tim Burton meets Betsy Johnson meets Gary Busey. Just plain OUT THERE! Wild. Wonderful. Wacky.

{Amazing use of pages from old books. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.}

Wow, only in California! The sofa sorta looks like some new fabric. Who would have ever thought of that?
