Poll: Raffle-style contest?

Hi ladies, it’s poll time once again. I have been dying to run a contest on the blog. I’ve reached out to Anthropologie directly to see if they’d be interested in sponsoring a contest. No word back yet and honestly it’s a crapshoot if I even reached out to the right person over there. I’m pretty dead-set on running a…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

On the lookout for…Asymmetric Architecture Jacket

I generally try to avoid white clothing like the plague. You see, things like dirt, dust, spaghetti sauce, makeup swipes and the like are attracted to me and they settle nicely and irremovably on my nice white things. But I’ve already broken my own rule twice this spring with Joe’s Jenny Honeys and the Looped Aster Tank so what’s one…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Of Specialty Shops and Pop-Ups

photo via Racked Yesterday the lovely Alexis over at J.Crew Aficionada ran a post about J.Crew’s new accessories room at their Prince St (Soho/NYC) store. I’ve barely stepped foot in J.Crew this season because the clothes have been so sadly boring but this marketing ploy worked. I swung by yesterday to see what all the fuss was about. And I…

Getting all up in my bib-ness

Some days I have trouble choosing between an embellished top and a statement necklace. And Anthropologie isn’t making that choice any easier with all their big fancy-schmancy necklaces. The homepage currently points to a bib necklace landing page filled with large-scale adornments. The Flora Shapes Necklace ($48, above) has a vintage charm to it and the Stormy Sea Necklace ($48)…

Items you loved, items you missed

Inspired by some of the Trade Market postings, I thought it would be fun to share some of our all-time favorite buys and some of our “I can’t believe I let that one go!” Anthro items. For me, there are oh-so-many items I wish I could have bought. Most of the time I either didn’t realize how great the item…

Passing Plaid

As a kid I never loved plaid. These days I’m warming up to it. I see the hipsters in their ironic plaid and I think to myself…yes. Must have plaid. And a fedora. Possibly paired with my Converse kicks. Weirder still is that Anthropologie has a plethora of plaid proliferating pour printemps. Plaid and Anthro in the same sentence. Together.…

Kudos to the creative team

Anthropologie’s email blast today covers their colors aplenty page but since I beat them to the punch on Monday I thought I’d digress with some kudos to the creative team that designs the emails and writes the copy. I don’t know if it’s one person or a team but whoever you are you do a great job! The emails are…
