Erstwhile fans of shabby-chic and paying lots of money for things you could ostensibly get for free or very very cheap–your prayers have been answered!  READ MORE »

People primarily consider Anthropologie a high-end clothing store, a sister of the expensive hand-crafted boutiques we regularly walk past — but it also serves as a great reminder that no matter how much money you make, or how many reclaimed wooden broaches you can afford, none of it will ultimately fill the deep existential void inside… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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-known… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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:

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,… READ MORE »
