Top Two Tuesday!

Top Two Tuesday is hosted by Taylor over at the undomestic momma and has looked like fun over the past few weeks. This week's topic is Top Two Favorite Stores.


When I started thinking about this, my mind went to food. I started thinking about the specialty shops that I love to browse for foods - Whole Foods and my local Farmer's Markets and on the other end of the spectrum, Crate & Barrel, Williams-Sonoma, etc.

Then I thought I could go towards shopping - you know: clothes, makeup, shoes, etc. I could lean towards small, local boutiques or big sprawling super stores.

Choices!!

I had a bit of a rough time (can you tell I can't make decisions??) but finally narrowed it down to these two as my favorite stores to shop at:

Nordstrom

I absolutely love that I can go there for pretty dresses, jeans, makeup, unbelieveable handbags, fabulous shoes & have coffee once I'm done shopping!


Williams-Sonoma

I love the selection of cookware and bakeware - a girl can dream of uber nice pots & pans without being able to afford them. *Sigh*

I love the appliances & the gadgets. I love the food selections (HELLO Sprinkles cupcakes to go into a bridal shower gift!) & the table linens.

I could spend days in there!

Thankfully our Williams-Sonoma is very close to our Nordstrom. Fulfilling wishes a few at a time.

I'm impressed you could narrow it down! I was trying to narrow mine down and I think I got down to like....10 or so? lol I do love Nordstoms and Wiliam Sonoma though! Definitely two of my favorites! One day my credit card and bank account will love those stores too...

I love your two top pics - I wish my entire Kitchen could be from WS!

Molly Lou Gifts said...

I heart both of those places. I could roam around them for hours. I wish that my kitchen and my creations looked like those out of the WS catalog.

How right you are...we can all dream. :)

Hope you're doing well and having a good week.

I can stay in Williams Sonoma for 5
minutes longer than I can sit in the floor in front of the fashion magazines in Barnes and Noble.
We're talking marathon shopping girlfriend! Funny story, was looking through the trash for a bill I lost the other day, and in the bottom in The Captains office, was two William Sonoma catalogs. I used Captain John's credit card to place that order. He tried, but to no avail, it cost him even more. Men can be sneaky little shits can't they?

Annie said...

Oh I adore those two stores too. I actually worked @ Nordstrom in high school, it was a lot of fun. Plus discounts! WS rocks. I drool over the catalogs every month. Don't you love that they provide recipes too? XOXO Hope you're week is going GREAT!!
