Dear Anthropologie Bring These Items Back (Round 2)

The Aida Cowlneck (review), one of about 1.5 million items I’d like to see Anthropologie re-release. A few years ago, Anthropologie celebrated its 20th anniversary by re-releasing some of its favorite pieces in an Archival collection. (You can read about it in this post, and reviews here.) Rumors are stirring that Anthropologie is thinking of doing another Archival collection and this…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

The day the wish lists died

An Anthro fan ponders just what to write in her hate letter, and smiles when she comes up with something good. Yesterday the community here was livid to discover that our Anthropologie.com wishlists had mysteriously shrunk from whatever size they were (in my case, all 400+ items) down to 100 items. Not only that, in order to add any more items…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Catharsis: I can’t find my size in-store and it’s sold …

Want to buy the Chava Pencil Skirt ($98)? If you wear a size XL, you’re SOL. In recent months I’ve noticed more and more angry emails coming my way about Anthropologie sizing. The feedback ranges from “It’s such a tease that they even show an item was made in an XL, because it’s always sold out a day or two after…

It’s been quite a while since we delved into the topic of Anthropologie’s website design and functionality. Now seems like the perfect time to discuss it again as Anthro makes some significant changes. I’ll start with my thoughts and then please do share yours in the comments. THE MAGAZINE AND ETYMOLOGIE Let’s start with something I like (a lot). For…

Catharsis: The winding road of Anthropologie

February 2007 During the {usually} cold winter months nothing tides a shopping lover over quite like a great catalogue. Even as we declare the ridiculousness of models in short sleeves inside we secretly delight in the fashions to come. After the disappointment of the February 2012 catalogue and the corresponding frustration over some of the clothing, I figured now is…

Year in Review: When Anthropologie’s technology fails us

If 2010 was the year Anthropologie exploded in my closet, 2011 was the year I started exploring other brands again. It’s painful to say that since Anthropologie is my favorite store but it’s true. Over the course of this week we’ll review the year that was for Anthro and look ahead to 2012. There is an incredible shift happening in…

Catharsis: Of Free Shipping and promos

Before I begin, a reminder that I do not work for Anthropologie. I’m not officially affiliated with them and I did not speak with anyone who works at Anthropologie about this topic. I’m drawing my points from other sources. This post serves as the opening to a community dialogue about free shipping and promotions. I know there have been a…
