Anthropologie or me?

I subscribe to the daily Anthropologie email and the featured sweater in today's edition reminded me of my Mockingbird Pullover pattern. As you can see, it is not identical, but with similarities. Mine is worked in Seda Rustica, a lofty and soft blend of 70% silk and 30% baby llama. Yummy :)

So I ask you, where does the inspiration come from? Were both the designer of their version and I influenced by the same social elements? Ideas often just pop up in my head out of seamingly nowhere, but surely the subconcious is at work...

Do you find ready-wear sweaters and try to match a pattern for you to make? Do you have a favorite store or designer that inspires your knitting?
