Who loves Anthropologie?

Today's giveaway is from my favorite store, Anthropologie. When I walk into that store I'm overwhelmed because there is not one single item that I wouldn't want for myself. (Hint: if you're ever at a loss as to what to get me for a present, walk into Anthropologie and buy the first thing your eyes fall on! It's that easy. HaHa.)

This particular cutie instantly caught my eye because he is so dainty. It is a small scented satchel shaped like an owl and with hand-stitched details. It is ridiculously cute and has a very soft, sweet potpourri scent. He has that comforting feel of something that you remember from your childhood. These little satchels are made to be stuck in your drawers to keep your delicate clothes from smelling musky from storage. When I was a little girl, my mom had a lace potpourri satchel in every drawer of her dresser and her clothes always smelled sweet. Mostly used for delicates and lingerie, these little cuties are a lovely addition to your dressing room.

I just fell in love with this vintage-looking little guy and I am excited to be giving him away today to one lucky lady. (I'm assuming men wouldn't really want to add this to their sock drawer, although, this little guy would make a wonderful stocking-stuffer for the woman you love!)

Today's giveaway is hosted by yours truly you get to learn about me!

Name: Rebecca Marie Knight (but you can call me Becka)

Location: Orlando, FL

Shop name: Studio222 Photogrpahy ;)

What led you to starting your own photogrpahy business? Well, that's a long story. I'll try to shorten it as best as I can... I had just come out of a very crazy time in my life and I was being forced by the universe to really decide what direction I was going to take from there. What did I want to do with my life? Where did I want to be in 5 years? All of those types of questions. I had become good friends with another local wedding photographer and was doing all of her editing and shooting as her assistant for some weddings. My passion for photography and expression was on fire since my life was so chaotic at the time and I was just shooting anything and everything I could, just for the love of art. She insisted that I start my own business editing images for photographers so I did. From there I decided that I wanted to take pictures as well and started my photography business primarily for portraits. After a few months, Nate joined in and we realized that we were a kick-ass team! We decided to sit down and decide what style and direction we wanted to go it. We defined out style and kept shooting all around Orlando. As as we got more popular, we were asked to shoot a few weddings. We did one just to see if we liked it and the rest is history!

What's your Starbucks order? Grande no-sugar vanilla soy latte.

As far as weddings go, what is your favorite trend? Birdcage veils, black or peacock feathers, anything yellow, brightly colored heels- things that are a little bit haute couture but unique to the couple.

What are your two favorite Etsy shops? My favorites are actually the one's that have been sponsoring the giveaways. I'm in love with Pavoreal's hair vines and with Red Ruby Rose's handbags! That's why I contacted them! :)

    I loved the shot in your peek at Trash the Prom Dress sessions of the girl in front of the semi truck. It looks like it belongs in a magazine. Whenever I think of Studio222 I think of that image... it's impacting!

    One favorite image? That's impossible! They're all gorgeous :)

    One that really comes to mind is the wedding that you did during the hurricane. I love the pictures on the beach of just the bride and groom with all of those dark clouds in the background. Sooo pretty!

    The one photograph that immediately drew me in was from Brittany and Shea's wedding, where you have the Bride and Groom and their entire Wedding Party all lined up on the railing with the water and sky in the background. I loved how you have their Wedding Party blurred but the Bride and Groom distinct, as it should be! (DMFMartin@gmail.com)

    Anthropologie is a wonderful store...when I am rich I will only shop there! I love the picture in Shea and Brittany's sneak peak where she is looking up at the camera. Her eyes are very blue and she has just a hint of a smile...so beautiful (of course I am biased) And I'm blessed! So glad I ran into your mom that day!

    I love Anthropologie! I just wish I had enough money to splurge on all of their stuff! As far as pictures go, I can't pick one, but I love all of the "trash the dress" photos, it's so funny to see everyone getting dirty in their wedding dress!

    Anthropologie is a.m.a.z.i.n.g. Everything in that store has "take me home with you" written all over it. :)

    One of my favorite images is from Ken and Christine's "sneak peek" - the second photo posted from the top. It just screams happiness and love...you can't look at it and not smile.

    I l-o-v-e the Trash the Dress concept and I really enjoyed seeing Lisa & Josh's shoot on your blog. My favorite picture was probably the last one in that post when they are kissing in the water and there is a beautiful blue sky behind them and you can see the ripples in the water. Beautiful!

    I love love love your maternity shoot of the Stowers-the shot with the sky is completely amazing! Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores to dream about!
