Toweling Off

The Fashionista and I have had a major crush on the Anthropologie Perpetual Blooms towels for over a year.

She likes the gold.

While I dream about the turquoise.

Every time I am in that blasted store I go over and cop a feel of their soft luxuriousness. But the bath towel alone is $36. For ONE towel. Even with my discount I refuse to pay $75 for a set of towels.

When someone shows a pretty bathroom makeover I can spot that towel a mile away.

They will not be going on sale any time soon. Anthro keeps restocking and selling out.

So I set out to find a knock off. I checked the usual suspects Pottery Barn, West Elm, Home Goods, JCP and then I was in Target.

I bring you the Target Home Floral Towel. It comes in yellow and aqua. It’s also on sale this week for 20% off.

While the towels are not quite as luxurious or thick, they are affordable. Since the Fashionista’s roommate recently moved out and took her shower curtain with her, we picked up the Target Home Floral Sketch curtain. (Also on sale.) The gray pulls in the gray from her bedroom and works nicely together.

Don’t even get me started on the bath mats.

Now, as soon as I actually find a home the aqua gems are mine, all mine!

Those towels are so pretty! I love the aqua. We are redoing our bath and I chose aqua, sand and ivory for colours (since DH couldn't care less about the colour as long as the room functions, KWIM). My inspiration is some little antique aqua glass cabinet knobs my brother gave me years ago. I will use them on the cabinets but I am going to have a row of them on a board for hanging towels and bathrobes and what ever. Should be pretty when the sun hits them. :)
Hope you get your towels and into your new home soon! {{{Hugs}}} said...

Wow!! I love them both, I am going to check out Target. That shower curtain is gorgeous too!

I am smiling as I imagine you as the Target Lady featured in their Black Friday and Christmas commercials, dressed in spandex and professional cycling helmet, zipping up and down the bath aisles searching for the Anthro look alikes.
I love the Anthro turquoise towels and the Target price tag. Thank you for sharing this great deal.
Your Friend,

MY DAUGHTER is re-doing her bedroom to gray and yellow...I think I may just buy her a re-do towels and --WAIT.....she has no use for the shower curtain......YEah for that!!

I have never heard cop a feel in towel terms...but hey, it works!! I have to go back and read what you really had to say now that I am done cracking up....

Debbie said...

Cop a feel?

You totally cracked me up with that. I don't have a single towel in this joint that would make anyone want to cop a feel.

I need to get more tactile minded, I think.

Those are pretty! I like that they come with a Target price.

(And though your comments were off, I want you to know that I really loved both of your stone of remembrance posts. )

Any house news?

Pamela R said...

Wow I love that shower curtain you guys picked up at Target; I'm sure her bathroom will look so amazing and romantic with the combo of the beautiful towels and curtain!

Bonnie said...

Must check out Target! The aqua would be my favorite! I agree with you the Anthropologie prices are ridiculous.

Laura, I think you have the prettiest headers in Blogland. I was trying to change every season and got lazy! I enjoy your posts.

Those are SO old-fashioned, like the old sculptured Callaway or Martex towel ads in my 50s women's magazines. I have always loved towels like that!! I don't blame you for feeling the pretty little things!!

I feel a trip to Target coming on! The towels are just gorgeous!


Sandy said...

Lovely linens! Gotta love Target, it often saves the day and the budget.

Jill Elaine said...

Those are lovely. I am just a tad jealous sometimes that you get a discount at Anthro!! Even if you can't buy everything even with that:) I keep hoping you tell us you have found a new home to land in - soon I'm sure -God is good and he will not forget you!

Thanks for introducing me to such prettiness. Wishing you a happy day.

I am also looking for new towels and saw those in Target. I was really hoping they would have beige and or cream ones, as those are the colors I need.
