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…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

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…

Email: Come Sundown

Anthropologie’s email today was a reminder that not only are there good deals on their clothing right now, there are also great deals on items for the home! Their bedding is truly beautiful and some of the sheet sets in particular are attainable on sale. I’m still hoping the Cirrus Duvet set might go on sale.

In-store: plenty of sales racks

I went to 2 Anthropologie stores yesterday looking for new Spring arrivals, but I was distracted at both by the large sales racks! I can’t remember the last time Anthropologie so aggressively announced a sale in stores, but the Soho store in NYC had large sales banners that I could see clearly from far up West Broadway. Upon entering the…
