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…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

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…

Anthropologie for the home: Am I missing out?

Though most of it is quite expensive, I love Anthropologie’s home goods. In fact, the mini picture in the top right corner of this blog is currently devoted to my two favorite home pieces: the Cirrus Bedding and the Cosmina Coverlet (no longer online it seems). Every time I browse the home goods Anthro seems to have catalogue-style photos for…
