Like Anthro, but even rarer

I am on an Etsy kick lately. As a kid my Mom was a crafter…she would make snowflakes in the winter, baby blocks, hair ruffles…tons and tons of things. She is a weaver and a sewer and generally crafty. Me? Not so much. Oh sure I tried it all for awhile. I knitted as a 5-year-old and played with Fimo…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Reviews: Finishing Touch Necklace

The Elusive Finishing Touch necklace ($48) I ordered in December finally came last week! (And it seems they are still having a hard time keeping it in stock, though I saw several in-store in NYC last week.) I like the 1920s-style accents on this piece…the fan next to the Florette, the multiple hoop accents on the other side. The pastel…

Email: Of two minds

Well, well, it looks like Anthropologie is running a little A/B test with their email this week! I got the same email with two different headlines today. (New month, new variety and A color-filled February. I vote option A.) Both versions of the email led to the same page (screen capture above). I love everything featured but my favorite is…

Lucky lucky, you’re so lucky

A story I had to share: I was at the 5th Ave Anthropologie (NYC) on Thursday night after a tough day at work. You know, the kind of day that only walking through fabulous stores and pretending to buy everything can cure. I spotted the Tano Banana Cream Tote‘s ($188) berry cousin from this post last week and saw that…

Reviews: Glass-Of-Bubbly Dress

One of my favorite things about Anthropologie is they’re not afraid of fun! Just because I’m in my 20s doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be allowed to wear fun things anymore. (And I plan on feeling the same way in my 70s.) If I want jewels on my jean pockets…well then I’m going to Bedazzle away! If I see a kid…

Reviews: Waiting for Poems Sheath

I’m starting to feel the winter sillies setting in. Normally this is when I’d schedule a fabulous vacation to somewhere warm, with beaches and (hopefully) a friendly place to crash but this year I am staycation all the way. So I’m living vicariously through spring clothes. I admit that I glossed over the Waiting for Poems Sheath ($178) in the…
