New outfits: Double takes

Like many retailers Anthropologie is getting hip to the more frugal side of things. Their latest outfit page features 5 items with two ways to wear each. The full skirt options are probably my favorite. I didn’t realize that the Over the River Cardi ($328) came in blue until seeing it utilized in the outfit above. I find the left-hand…

Email: Presents to give, presents to love

In their latest email, Anthropologie politely reminds us all that Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are all coming and you better have your gifts at the ready! The email links to their gift ideas page. I didn’t really see anything new but they certainly have plenty of cute gift ideas this year. Not shown in the animated .gif on the right…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Follow Along with an Anthropologie Buyer

For a store with as much of a national (and Canadian!) presence like Anthropologie it’s surprising how little press they give. Sure you see their products featured in lots of “Me want!” lists but you don’t really see the brains behind their merchandising sharing their inspiration, tips or thoughts. That may be changing though. I recently found out that the…

Boxes and Buttons

How cute is this box with the button ribbon? This is the free gift box and ribbon Anthropologie is giving away when you make a purchase. All you have to do is ask. It has just the perfect touch of whimsy and the box is made from recycled cardboard so it’s a bit green too. If I got this as…

And that’s why you should always read the whole description…

…oops on me! I received my Anthropologie order yesterday which included the lovely Dandelion Greens Flatware I posted about recently. As I eagerly dug through the box I noticed that the wrapping containing the flatware looked way too small. I was expecting 5 place settings you see and I found only 1. At first I thought this was a mistake…

anthro Card Perk email

If you have an anthro card, you probably received an email yesterday about an ornament sale. This is the first anthro perk email I’ve received since signing up for the card. I had started to wonder what the card was really for besides letting Anthropologie track my purchases. I was confused about what the anthro card was for. It’s not…

Winter Wonderland

I look forward to all of the store window decorations this time of year. You can’t help but be cheery when surrounded by light and love. If I worked at Anthropologie I would probably ask to help out with their window displays because they are always amazing. I took some snaps of the 3 Anthros here this past weekend. Beautiful…
