DIY Dining

Here’s a well-executed idea I’d love to see Anthropologie expand to the rest of their site. Their DIY Dining Section allows you to match tableware based on smart recommendations.

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Reviews: Lounging around

I have never really paid much attention to the lounge section at Anthropologie because the items they sell would never support or fit my body. But cheers to my boyfriend who picked out a couple of items who have me rethinking that perception. Winter Garden Chemise, $98 Heartstrings Robe, $148 The Winter Garden Chemise is a soft cotton. It’s pretty…

Email: In Our Words

Click here to see the whole email I recently signed up for the Anthro card in the store. I will save my thoughts on the card for an upcoming post, but I received my first Anthro newsletter today.

I was cruising through Anthropologie’s special holiday section looking for curiosities to give as hostess gifts when I stumbled across the Illume Pine Cone Fire Starters ($24) shown in the photo…

One Hundred Summits Dress, $188Outfit option 1 | Outfit option 2 The One Hundred Summits Dress did not catch my eye in the catalog. In real life though I found it very attractive.

Site update!

Anthropologie updated their site homepage today with a flash holiday album. I like the moving slide touches (on slide 2 for example). It’s a nice, unexpected touch of whimsy. None of the clothing is really jumping out at me besides the Off-Kilter Hoodie on slide 23 but there are several pairs of boots I would love to own. No doubt…
