Tidying Guru Marie Kondo Visited The Clutter Dungeon That Is Anthropologie

Marie “KonMari” Kondo, professional de-clutterer and author of bestselling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, made it in and out of Anthropologie alive and without purchasing any regretful dust-collectors. How did she do that? Anthropologie is a clutter magnet for any woman who dares to meander in, and her presence there is the greatest oxymoron of…

Anthropologie Told Nursing Mom To Feed Her Kid In The Toilet

Breastfeeding moms held a “nurse-in” at Anthropologie after a woman shopping in a Los Angeles store was escorted by a manager to the bathroom to continue feeding her kid. Might I remind you that breastfeeding in public is legal in California? And that no one should have to hang out in the toilet any…

These Polishes Score A Perfect TenOverTen

We’re something of nail polish connoisseurs here at The Frisky and TenOverTen polishes are some of the most fun colors priced midrange. Available at Anthropologie or online at TenOverTen’s website, the polishes are made without icky chemicals like formaldehyde, plus they’re not tested on animals. And I can speak from experience when I say that…

Do Not Want: This Tulle Dress Is Making Me Gag

How gross is this Asra Tulle Midi Dress, sold at Anthropologie? First off, it’s only a sheer over-layer — it’s not even a full-on dress (unless you are really, extremely daring). Second, those weird faux tulle roses are making me want to gag. There is absolutely no proper application of those things, unless you’re talking…

The Soapbox: Why You Shouldn’t Intern At Anthropologie

My relationship with Anthropologie is love-hate. I love the company’s handpicked, one-of-a-kind eclectic look. I hate the fact that my loving this stuff only underscores the fact that I am in no way unique and that I have been corporate-brainwashed just like the rest of you ladies who just can’t get enough pencil skirts, ruffled…

Anthropologie Makes Their First Foray Into Beauty With An Exclusive Lipstick Line

Anthropologie gives me a complex. I walk in and I’m like, “I want this life,” which turns into “Does anyone actually have this life?,” which quickly becomes “Why is this life so goddamn expensive?” I go because I want one top; I emerge with that top, a whimsical set of $20 bobby pins, a $60…

Time For An Icy Cool Fashion Statement

The cool minty color of this watch totally reminds me of the “Daiquiri Ice” flavor at Baskin Robbins, which I ordered by accident one time as a child and then started hyperventilating because I was so scared it was going to get me drunk and then I’d get arrested and never be able to become…

Winners & Losers: Anthropologie’s Made In Kind Collections

Anthropologie is at it again, launching a new series of collaborative lines by designers like Mia Christopher and Dusen Dusen. This latest crop includes a new round of items from Karen Walker’s diffusion line Hi There. But for all the winners, there’s also a couple of losers — Swarm’s painted denim jackets look like something…

Check Out Tracy Reese’s Collection For Anthropologie

We’ve been big fans of Tracy Reese for a long time. Her dresses are girly, pretty and the epitome of feminine charm. So we were especially thrilled to learn she’d be doing a capsule collection for Anthropologie. Reese’s seven-piece collection is part of Anthro’s Made In Kind series, where the company teams up with lesser-know…

First Look: Karen Walker’s New Collection For Anthropologie

The next greatest collaboration? We’re betting on Karen Walker’s new affordable collection for Anthropologie. A new lookbook featuring the 35 or so pieces she designed for the store is out, and we’ve selected our favorite nine dresses, tops and skirts. Called “Hi There by Karen Walker,” the line will be available in Anthropologie stores throughout…

Do Not Want: Shark Bite Shirt

This is a $148 designer shirt sold at Anthropologie, but if you told me it was a $5 novelty t-shirt sold at a seaside gift shop, I would totally believe you. Like, maybe the back would say “I took a bite out of Laguna Beach” or whatever, and surfer dudes would wear it to show…

Style 911: “What Do I Wear With My New Anthro Dress?”

I am the proud new owner of Rodna Halter Dress from Anthropologie–which is a store I usually just drool over.  This is my first purchase from Anthro and I have to say it was an impulse buy! Now I’m not sure where/how to wear my new favorite dress.  It’s a fine dark navy corduroy and…

Anthropologie Is Selling Rickshaws Now

What could be said about Anthropologie’s Rickshaw (yes, a real thing) that Anthropologie couldn’t say better? Just listen to their whimsical description of the $2,200 culturally questionable bikemobile:
While on a trip to India work project to find new objects to culturally appropriate some of our team got tired of walking among the poors

8 Egregious Navajo Violations

Julie’s post earlier on the insensitivity and dubious legality of “Navajo” and “Native American” products got me thinking about just how many popular stores have committed this ridiculous faux pas. It turns out that there’s even more than I had originally suspected. A quick look around the web led me to the eight following atrocities,…

Her Fearful Asymmetry

Hello, sexy shoes! Spring is almost here and our shoe drive is through the roof. We’re coveting these Swooping Asymmetry Wedges designed by Matt Bernson. The luscious leather wedge says “sultry,” while the military -nspired canvas upper says, “I mean business.” They are comfortable to pound the pavement in and perfect to pair with skinny…

Fred Flare Skirt Beats Anthropologie Style At Half The Price

We’ve had a thing for this Anthropologie skirt (left) for a while now. The bright colors are alluring, the shape is flattering, and we just want it, dammit. A rather unattractive price tag, however, has held us back. That, after all, is not the sort of skirt you can wear all the time without being…

Summer Must: Anthropologie Reversible Seamless Tank

I am not graceful during the summer. Really, is it reasonable for anyone to expect to look like anything but a mess when it’s 90 degrees and it feels as though the world is going to melt? Probably not. But certain occasions do warrant looking more put-together. On those days, I thank the sweet god…

Eley Kishimoto For Anthropologie Looks Like Maternity Wear

We love an Anthropologie designer collaboration as much as the next girl, but the newly released Eley Kishimoto collection is a dud. Cheaper fabrics don’t seem to do justice to Eley Kishimoto’s usually cute prints and shapes, and all the clothes veer pretty intensely towards maternity wear. The line is available in the U.K. and…

Elegant, Old-School Lingerie At Anthropologie

Not every girl feels comfortable in vampy lingerie. And now, those of us who prefer more demure underthings can stock up on bras and boyshorts with a dash of old-fashioned glamour at Anthropologie. The store has several sets of “underpinnings” that are more modest than the usual bedroom attire; however, just because they aren’t slinky…
