Anthropologie’s August catalog is out, and instead of the whimsical models they usually include, the company photographed “real people” wearing their clothes. Everyone and their mother is into street style photography these days, with Scott “The Sartorialist” Schuman even snapping the latest ad campaign for DKNY Jeans. It is nice to see different body types wearing the clothes that are for sale, but are they real people or simply models who have more realistic proportions? We took to Google and searched a few of the names listed in the catalog to find out. Keep reading »

I don’t get much mail, except for the occasional postcard from my mom and the handful of magazines I subscribe to. For the most part, this pleases me because I’m not wasting as much paper as I would if I received L.L. Bean catalogs every week.
