Eye Candy: Anthropologie June 2012 catalogue

Color Swatch Tee ($58) This top is not going to flatter 80% of the Anthropologie shopping population. It’s pretty, but it may as well be artwork rather than clothing. Anthropologie has officially unveiled some of the looks from the June 2012 catalogue on their website…and I’m dying over here, in ways both good and bad. Let’s start with the good:…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Anthropologie tries turning a lump of coal back into a delight

The retailer is sending many affected Anthrolovers a one-time use coupon for 25% off your next order — not just sale items!! — that is good through December 8. It doesn’t equal the initial cancellations I know but this…

Metapost: A new no-fee alternative to Paypal

Anyone who’s read this blog for awhile knows I’m no fan of Paypal. While I like the buyer & seller protection Paypal offers, I despise their fees.

In an intriguing piece of news I found out yesterday through J.Crew Aficionada, Urban Outfitters and Sears Holdings are currently both weighing a bid to buy the J.Crew Group (owner of J.Crew and Madewell). For those unfamiliar with the situation, in late November J.Crew Group announced an offer from TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners to take the company…

Year in Review: eBay poachers cackle with glee

The wonderful thing about capitalism is that there is a free market. Demand sets prices, although people can choose to charge whatever they want for their wares. The terrible thing about capitalism is there’s a real “me first, me only” mentality that can cause people to throw out their ethics, their logic and their common sense in pursuit of the…

Anthropologie product pages — now with video!!

Looking for something with a little more motion in your Anthropologie product reviews? The brand’s embrace of most things social media continues with videos, now appearing on some product pages. (Thanks to everyone in the community who emailed me about this!) Videos make total sense to me — who doesn’t want to see the way a dress looks in motion,…
