Urban Outfitters Offices

Thursday, February 17, 2011








 


 


Dear Urban Outfitters or Anthro, 


Let's talk. I will seriously work for free for you for say, 6 months, if you will just hire me so that I can sit amidst this beauty all day. (but then you should probably hire me for real after that so that I can actually buy your clothes). Let me know what you think?


Love,
Krystal

P.S. I'm serious.

And you can read the interesting article about how the building was chosen and reconstructed for the UO/Anthro/Free People empire in Philadelphia

PSS I should also mention UO's bridal gown line. Have you seen it?????

Ah... LOVE!

I don't think I will ever see buildings with high ceilings like that here --except for churches. They could easily plan 2-3 stories (floors) into that space!

Brenna [fabuleuxdestin] said...

Ah! So beautiful!

Fashion Fabrice said...

hahahah great;:) You would really work for free?:p
I must say i like that building too! always loved high ceilings and stuff:)

SwissMiss said...

Dear Krystal

I would hire you, on one condition - you bring Bama Rama with everyday.
MMMWAH so we can play with him. MMMWAH.

marissa said...

Hah, love your letter! I've seen this building all over lately and for good reason. It'd be amazing to work amongst all that creativity. And thank you for mentioning the email... I thought something must have happened there. ;)

Lady Grey said...

WOW! You're not kidding, what an awesome work environment!!

Coco Coterie said...

Aw...you just need to create Krystal's Creations and create your own beauty to distribute to a waiting world ~ xox Alexandra

Tucker said...

I know someone who works at the anthro headquarters. they frequently do a "grab bag" ... of all of their clothes. you get to pick whatever you want out of the grab bag.

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

Love it when they manage to convert an old building and keep the charm and add the style! Fab!

Vanilla said...

This looks like a beautiful place to work :) I'd be happy

Love, Vanilla

Diana Mieczan said...

Kisses, sweetie

Carly said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this POST...Come to Philly! So we can meet:)
You know I do a ton of freelance work in Philadelphia and just LOVE the city...two of my closest friends are high up on the food chain at Anthro and kick it in the old naval yard everyday(that is where the compound is).
I was always so happy with Nicole Miller that I never made the switch..but it is SUCH a great company!! AND you can bring your dog to work with you.....how cool!

I know! Every time I go into an Anthro I think "I could live in this store" such a great vibe. My daughter worked in one while in college and we got the best discounts, I was very sad when she quite. Hope someone over there in PA answers your plea :)

{Selma} Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

They also should hire me, because Philadelphia's my favorite East Coast town (yes, I love it more than NYC!!!), and because my second name is Urbania. Ha, I wish.
Not. ;)
