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.…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

50 below (beach excursion)

I wouldn’t make Anthropologie my go-to store for deals but that doesn’t mean there aren’t steals to be had. Believe it or not there’s a wealth of items priced under $50 right now. I picked out some of my favorites to highlight… 1: Dunescape Hat: $42 2: Stormy Sea Necklace: $48 3. Through-Hoops Top: now $50 & Bottom: now $50…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Site update! Utility and 3-D Nursery

Hooray site update! Besides the Cargo Party Anthro emailed about yesterday they’ve side-barred a featurette called 3-D Nursery. A rose is a rose is a rose I suppose. Anthropologie has had a lot of flowery accents this season and I’m all for it. Click through to the featured page though and it’s decidedly selective. There’s plenty to like, from the…

Site update! Slouchy tops and billowy bottoms

Anthropologie updated their homepage and truly seems to be embracing the flowiness right now. First they highlight ‘slouchy tees‘ which I’d politely suggest renaming free-flowing tops. Lots of cute ones to choose from like the Steep Stairs Tank ($78) which was part of Right Angle in their Geometry cycle last week or the The-Look-Back Tank ($68) which is gorgeous coming…

Anthropologie gets the modesty thumbs up

USA Today spies a trend, and that trend is: modesty! Especially for teens, who have been facing less than decent options when it comes to clothes lately. What stores did young ladies in training and their parental units identify as hip yet classy? American Eagle, my new nemesis Banana Republic (aka Nanaban), J.Crew, Ann Taylor, Delia*s and Anthropologie! American Eagle…

Coordinate Geometry

The outfits section has been updated with new looks (wow, that was fast!). This time around the theme is geometry with shapes, angles and coordinates a’plenty. My favorite outfit is vector (shown above) which has a classically simple look. Those lavaliere peep-toes ($180) sure look intense though. Which look is your favorite?

Complete 180

Well hello website update! New items were trickling onto the site all weekend and now the homepage has been updated to match. The refresh extols the virtues of, ahem, the view from the back. Click through to the turnaround page to see the many items that feature unexpected details from behind. I am surprised that the With-The-Sun Blouse ($98) didn’t…
