Vintage touch

With clothing trends playing heavily off the style of the 1930s and 40s this winter it’s no wonder that jewelry has followed suit. It’s been interesting to see Anthropologie’s take on the trends through their whimsical pieces. In particular I’ve noticed their necklaces have been taking on more stature lately. Larger pieces with a more delicate touch than previous years…

BUILD YOUR WORK WARDROBE

Objects on website are bigger than they appear

When it comes to clothing I’m usually not afraid to buy online. Sight unseen doesn’t really matter. If I dislike something I can just return it. Bags are a different story though. I love many of Anthropologie’s bags but I am hesitant to buy them online. Take the Lime Valley Bag in the shot above. From the product shot I…

New outfits: Double takes

Like many retailers Anthropologie is getting hip to the more frugal side of things. Their latest outfit page features 5 items with two ways to wear each. The full skirt options are probably my favorite. I didn’t realize that the Over the River Cardi ($328) came in blue until seeing it utilized in the outfit above. I find the left-hand…

Sure you see their products featured in lots of “Me want!” lists but you don’t really see the brains behind their merchandising sharing their inspiration, tips or thoughts. That may be changing though. I recently found out that the…

Boxes and Buttons

How cute is this box with the button ribbon? This is the free gift box and ribbon Anthropologie is giving away when you make a purchase. All you have to do is ask. It has just the perfect touch of whimsy and the box is made from recycled cardboard so it’s a bit green too. If I got this as…
