Email: There’s a present for you

In their latest email Anthropologie invites us to check out the sale under the tree. I think their free shipping promotion must be working because their online sale section is looking a bit thin. A lot of items that they add to the sale section sells out quite quickly. I have put a couple of items on my wishlist only…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

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…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

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…

Email: Presents to give, presents to love

In their latest email, Anthropologie politely reminds us all that Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are all coming and you better have your gifts at the ready! The email links to their gift ideas page. I didn’t really see anything new but they certainly have plenty of cute gift ideas this year. Not shown in the animated .gif on the right…

Follow Along with an Anthropologie Buyer

For a store with as much of a national (and Canadian!) presence like Anthropologie it’s surprising how little press they give. 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…
