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.

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Just thought you might like to know about…Toast

For anyone nostalgic for the way Anthropologie catalogues used to be, I present to you Toast. I’ll sum up the UK clothing retailer as what would happen if Madewell and Anthro had a baby.

Way off-topic: Jezebel’s take on the Anthro May catalogue

Jezebel — one of my favo blogs — occasionally breaks down their own stream of consciousness for various retailer catalogues. This month they picked Anthro and the results are pretty funny. If you are at all sensitive I recommend skipping the comments as they are pretty much uncensored and mostly down on Anthro. I think it’s healthy to see varying…

Catharsis: Imagining the Forever 21/Anthropologie depositions

Anthropologie is suing Forever 21 charging blatant rip-offism, charging lower pricesism and general brand quality degradationism. And I would normally quote a news article and be all professional here but frickin Women’s Wear Daily is charging to read the entire article. And that has pushed me off the deep end into delirium. So instead I present my completely made-up reimagining…
