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…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

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,…

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…

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…

anthro email: Loves me, loves me not

This month’s anthro newsletter is here, and while there is no coupon code to be found (darn) there is some insight into this spring’s collection. Anthropologie reveals that internally they refer to the collection as “Loves Me, Loves Me Not.” There is a corresponding page on the website. From the email…“My team and I had the opportunity to sit in…
