My Anthropologie website wishlist

From the desk of RoxyEffortless AnthropologieNew York, NY 10005 Dearest Anthropologie, Just a little love note to let you know (for the kabillionth time) how much I love you. And your website. But like all great loves, well, I just want you to change a wee little bit. It’s not you — it’s me…I just want things to be better…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Off the beaten path…wall decals

Chandelier: from $38 by Raging Vinyl What makes a home an Anthropologie home? My friends and I joke it’s an entryway with lots of rustic-looking mirrors of different sizes. One of my friends just bought a new house with the hubby and is committed to decorating in the Anthro style. She’s been trying to create the mirrors-on-wall effect in her…

Lucky lucky, you’re so lucky

A story I had to share: I was at the 5th Ave Anthropologie (NYC) on Thursday night after a tough day at work. You know, the kind of day that only walking through fabulous stores and pretending to buy everything can cure. I spotted the Tano Banana Cream Tote‘s ($188) berry cousin from this post last week and saw that…

Everyday wear as a kid; worn like a badge in middle school; avoided like the plague in high school; obsessed over as a statement in college; shoved in storage in my early 20s and now I am once again falling back in love. Sometimes I wear tees on…

The continuing adventures of misjudging sizes

It was love at first sight for me and the Hardwood Necklace ($168, above). I am dreaming about returning to Hawaii in the spring and I thought this would be great to wear with my brown and pink swimsuit. I knew the piece would be kind of big. My thought was that it would be about the size of the…

Anthropologie accessorizes the White House

Looks like the White House is going to be a bit more whimsical for the next four years! Michelle Obama’s style has been well-documented and apparently her design sense is top-notch as well. Ms. Obama has ordered a custom settee from Vanguard Company, the company that builds most of Anthropologie’s furniture. An excerpt from the article in the Hickory Record:…

Getting to know…Frye

As I have mentioned before, Anthropologie often helps me discover new brands. A few years ago Anthro helped me discover Nanette Lepore who is now one of my favorite designers. Now thanks to my favorite store I have discovered Frye. It happened when I was trying to find the Gemstone Miner Booties (now $130) in my size and somehow stumbled…
