Just thought you might like to know about…Toast

For anyone nostalgic for the way Anthropologie catalogues used to be, I present to you Toast. I’ll sum up the UK clothing retailer as what would happen if Madewell and Anthro had a baby. In fact some of the models are familiar faces from the J.Crew/Anthro/Boden/BCBG superfecta.

I can’t remember where I heard about Toast first. Most likely Racked, The Cut or Refinery 29. I’ve been getting their catalogues for a little bit now and I am just loving their clothes. It deepens my empathy for Anthro fans abroad — the exchange rate makes buying anything from Toast cost prohibitive at the moment. But to flip through Toast’s catalogues is a joy because they use the dreamy, whimsical style that Anthro has recently (sadly) abandoned. Some of my favorites below.

nell skirt (£85.00) & linen long cardigan (£99.00)
fine voile tunic (£75.00), zia necklace (£29.00)
& droli heel (£175.00)
debo dress (£79.00)
ceres dress (£99.00)
sachiyo dress (£125.00)

Doesn’t it just make you sigh? I can’t speak to the quality of the clothing (yet) but it certainly looks nice. I’m saving my pennies to make an order. Like Anthropologie, Toast is both a clothing and homewares retailer. You can request a catalogue here (allow 6-8 weeks). Have you heard of them or shopped there before? I’m curious to know more.

    That's funny you mentioned Toast… I was going to order some of their bedding. Their bedroom photos are so gorgeous and simple…. to die for!

    OT question but are Anthro purses not returnable to stores once you buy them? Or are they not returnable period? Thanks.

    Hi Anon, I've never tried returning a purse but I'd hope they'd allow it. I'd imagine they're subject to the same return policy as shoes/clothing. Which really is that as long as the item is unworn and you have either the receipt or tag they'll take care of you.
