Wish List: December 2008

Five things I am dreaming of this month… 5. What’s that you say?The Wide-Eyed beanie ($34) is for kids?Hmph. I might wear it anyway. 4. The Jam Jar cardigan ($298)is a bit overpriced to me, butthe cashmere is oh-so-soft. 3. Don’t believe the photo above —it doesn’t do the Hybrid Perpetual Necklace ($288)justice. 2. The more I see this outfit,the…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Email: Days remain

Anthropologie’s latest email is a reminder: if you live in the United States, you have 5 days left to get free standard shipping on your online order of over $200. I personally have taken advantage twice and both orders went very smoothly. One interesting thing I noticed: my first order was large items and it shipped via UPS. But my…

Gorgeous! Standing Magnifying Glass set

I simply adore the old-fashioned look of the Standing Magnifying Glass set ($68-$128). I could see these used in so many ways — placed at separate angles on a vanity for a vintage backstage dressing room look; in someone creative’s office placed askew for inspiration; in a den or library for a functional-looking decor piece. From the description it sounds…

Email: Presents with presence

Did you know Christmas is only two weeks away? And Hanukkah is even closer! Kwanzaa’s coming up too! So if you are still looking for your gifts, Anthropologie’s latest email has some ideas for you. Their gifts with a twist page is a bit light in my opinion. I do like the megaflower votives they have on the page. They…

Not sure what to make of…the Soaring Porcine Ring

I’m as much a fan of kitsch as the next person but the Soaring Porcine ring ($178) seems to take it to a whole new level. When pigs fly indeed. Not only is the ring huge (and heavy) but its jewel-encrusted look would put Swarovski to shame. Part of me thinks the ring is kind of cute and perhaps if…

Roxy on holiday

roxy on holiday by roxyturtle Unlike many I am a fan of the cold weather. Love snow and the holidays and the cold! But that doesn’t mean I can’t also dream of escaping somewhere warm where the water is clear and the breeze is the only movement for miles. Anthropologie recently unveiled their 2009 resort line and I love several…
