Anthropologie: the social networking experience

I use Google Analytics to track visits to this blog, and recently I have been noticing visits coming from something called “Supergroups.” As much as I was hoping this was something related to superheroes, it turns out it’s where our Anthropologiette kin hang out. The member posts area hasn’t been too active recently from the looks of it, but people…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Trend: Shoes that are also boots

Here’s a trend I admit I don’t get: boots that have shoes as their bases. Case in point: Anthropologie’s Tagalong Boots (now $200). I just can’t wrap my head around this trend. And Anthro is far from the only store carrying these. Behold the Puma Ferro Boots ($375) which make me disappointed that the name “Ugg” was already taken. I…

Update: In real life — The Tivoli Scoopneck

I’m not very good at practicing patience, so when I couldn’t find the Tivoli Scoopneck in-store I ordered it from the website instead. I couldn’t wait to see how the lace flower detailing would look in real life, and if this shirt was truly worth $88. And while I wouldn’t ordinarily do this I am about to share some real-life…

From the email…“My team and I had the opportunity to sit in…

Off the beaten path…J. Crew wedding dress

A little while ago I blogged about how I wish Anthropologie carried wedding dresses…and the resounding feedback was ‘hells no!’ (Fair enough.) Forgive me for bringing up the topic again, but when I saw the wedding window display above at J. Crew’s 5th Ave store in NYC this weekend I was blown away by how gorgeous it is! I do…

Items that caught my eye in-store

I was on a mission in-store this week, looking for some specific items to help out a friend who is costuming a couple of TV and movie shoots in town. Of course I also spotted several items I thought were interesting for me as well. I’ve tried to pick items outside the catalogue to highlight. For reference, I am 5’8″,…

On the right person maybe…Deller’s Element Jumper

I go back and forth on the Deller’s Element Jumper ($288). At first my reaction was, GASP! A jumper??!? But the more I look at it the more I like it, especially with the styling in the catalog (photo above). It has a Katherine Hepburn quality to it that makes it seem very classic. Then again, I don’t think I…
