For the home section updated

Anthropologie has updated its “For the Home” homepage (go to the website and click on {for the home} in the navbar). The featured item is the Tagliare Console Table ($398), a piece mixing different knotty wood parcels into a rustic-looking piece of home art. I have seen tables like this a lot recently. ABC Carpet & Home has had pieces…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

The continuing adventures of misjudging sizes

It was love at first sight for me and the Hardwood Necklace ($168, above). I am dreaming about returning to Hawaii in the spring and I thought this would be great to wear with my brown and pink swimsuit. I knew the piece would be kind of big. My thought was that it would be about the size of the…

Anthropologie accessorizes the White House

Looks like the White House is going to be a bit more whimsical for the next four years! Michelle Obama’s style has been well-documented and apparently her design sense is top-notch as well. Ms. Obama has ordered a custom settee from Vanguard Company, the company that builds most of Anthropologie’s furniture. An excerpt from the article in the Hickory Record:…

Email: No Necklace Required

I guess the rumors are true: the statement necklace is falling out of fashion. The latest confirmation comes via Anthropologie’s latest email which highlights tops that require no jewelry added. (Well-topped tops in their words.) While I agree the shirts shows don’t really need necklaces I am not about to stop wearing necklaces. Both large and small, I love them…

Catharsis: Order issues

Despite all the browsing and purchasing I do at Anthropologie, very little of it is actually for me. I have friends in the movie and TV industry and I like to help them shop (when they let me!). Sometimes I act as a personal shopper. And then there are those glorious times when I can shop for myself — usually…

Getting to know…Frye

As I have mentioned before, Anthropologie often helps me discover new brands. A few years ago Anthro helped me discover Nanette Lepore who is now one of my favorite designers. Now thanks to my favorite store I have discovered Frye. It happened when I was trying to find the Gemstone Miner Booties (now $130) in my size and somehow stumbled…

Email: Find Your Place in the Sun

Anthropologie, you tease! Their latest email invites us all to lie about in the sun, and truly there is nothing I would love more. I love the Flower Patch Top ($88) and Bottom ($88) in this email. The model looks kind of uncomfortable though — does anyone actually lay down like that? Visit the updated Getaway section for more swim,…
