RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Today I am a little bit famous

Every so often I open myself up a bit, expose my vulnerabilities and show the world who I really am. Today is not one of those days! But it is the day that Racked is talking about fanblogs — and guess who got interviewed for the story? This story is centered on Ikea’s recent poorly thought-out (though not surprising for a European-based company)…

Anthropologie’s Spring Dresses: Yay or Nay?

The Galen Dress ($128), one of Anthropologie’s efforts to mix balance loose drape and shape definition. Quick sidenote: Anthropologie sent out a first dibs email for its May catalogue yesterday. See the whole page here. Spring is a lovely time of year for many reasons but for me one of the highlights is watching Anthropologie’s dress section explode with tons…

Musings: Anthropologie early Spring 2014 trends, inconsistencies, online-only and wondering where some stuff …

Koral’s Coated Floral Skinny Jeans ($250) — awesome, or WTF? Good lord, Spring 2014. What have you done to us? I’m glad there isn’t much I need to buy this season because from what I’ve seen so far, this season is headed in an insane, trend-specific direction. After an incredibly exciting Fall 2013, how will Anthropologie do this season? I’ve…
