'Eat Pray Love' Inspired Fashions at Cost Plus World Market

In honor of the upcoming film (opening August 13), Eat Pray Love, starring Julia Roberts, Cost Plus World Market stores nationwide will feature a fashionable line of Eat Pray Love merchandise that "evokes the warm and inspirational themes of the film." The collection includes a block print paisley tunic ($19.99), bucket hat with grosgrain ($19.99), and beaded stretch bracelets ($5.99). I actually just borrowed the book from the library last week, once I read it I'll decide whether or not I want to buy these boho-chic pieces. I love World Market regardless, wish there was one in my area. Click through to see more pics!

I'm so excited to see the movie but I think this look is a little too old for me.

Eh... I didn't think World Market actually had much in the way of actual clothing--mostly just lots of tacky jewelry and accessories. If I want boho, I'll go to Anthropologie.

World Market has cut back on some of the exotic and hard-to-find stuff. You know it's all driven down by people who crunch at the numbers and pretty soon, it'll be reduced down like Pier 1 was, to just selling a few bland items designed to appeal to the lower common denominator...

I miss the old Pier 1, too, used to be my favorite store when I was a kid. I'd pretend I was a National geographic explorer as I trekked through the aisles, and they always had super affordable trinkets that my mom would let me buy. Now a days Pier 1 is sooo expensive and more furniture/home decor driven. Oh well!

Exactly! I didn't have a local Pier 1 when I was growing up, but it was where my relatives all were. I'd go there and just gawk at all the cool stuff from all over the world.

My parents bought me a white director's chair with pink fabric for my room. When we finally got a Pier 1 in my town, it was just a pale imitation of the old ones.

Groan... I'm missing that mall... They had also an "old" Limited (!!) before they were bought out...
