Tano!

I love researching the brands that Anthropologie buys from. Recently I have been interested in Tano, maker of the Banana Cream Tote ($188) above. Every time I see the bag, I think ‘I love it!’ quickly followed by ‘I can’t justify the price for something that resembles a flattened bowling bag.’ The tote also comes in red, which I have…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Off the beaten path…Martin + Osa

I have had a long and torrid love affair with tee shirts. Everyday wear as a kid; worn like a badge in middle school; avoided like the plague in high school; obsessed over as a statement in college; shoved in storage in my early 20s and now I am once again falling back in love. Sometimes I wear tees on…

Email: Winter’s Building Blocks

Anthropologie is updating their website, and the Outfits section is their latest new page. They sent an email to slyly announce it. Their angle is ‘plan now for Spring later.’ Well OK, but I still love winter! I can’t say that I think these outfits would be practical even in Spring where I live, but they are lovely! The first…

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…

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…
