Fairisle Sweater Clocks, Living the Anthropologie Life

January 11th, 2010 Posted in anthropologie, Cool Gadgets, curiosities, Decor | No Comments »

Saw these on sale a few days ago on Anthro’s website. They’re really cute. Who would have thought of creating a sweater clock? Obviously a very creative Andrea Williamson did. If you have extra cash to burn and your bare walls are beginning to get to you, keep these in mind.

I’ll take all of them please!

Seychelles Shoes

December 9th, 2009 Posted in anthropologie, shoes | No Comments »

Yet another amazing and distinctive brand of women’s footwear! Seychelles has been popularized by Anthropologie, Solestruck, and other stockists alike. I have a pair of pretty bronze open-toed pumps (unfortunately have to wait until Spring though to wear them). Love the vintagey flair and characteristic thick heels. They are also reasonably priced for their quality. Right now I’m lusting over a pair of metallic gold Lola wedges.

Lucky Day!

September 2nd, 2009 Posted in anthropologie, Fashion, Handbags | No Comments »

Last night before going to sleep, I took a quick glance at the Anthro online sales section and was disappointed to see the Zois Bellflower (grey) bag still at full price. I had been keeping an eye on that bag for what seems like months. By early afternoon the next day, I noticed some new bags were transferred to the sales section. Little did I know that the Zois Bellflower had sold out earlier in the morning. I only noticed that when I looked at my Save for Later list- had the Bellflower bag listed on sale at 43% off its regular price (much better than what I would have guessed). I called Anthro’s main number right away hoping that a charge and send could be done; however, the sales associate told me a C&S couldn’t be done due to low in-stock quantities in their stores, two of which (Los Angeles and Washington D.C. had only 1-2 units). I called both stores with no success at finding this pretty handbag there. I asked the S.A. in L.A. to check another store for me. She gave me the number to Irvine, California saying they were listed as having 1 left. I called Irvine with fingers and toes crossed. The S.A. went to look for it and I was imagining that a customer was hanging onto the only one left (silly me *blush*). The S.A. utterly surprised me with “yes, we have one left.” I couldn’t believe it =) *ecstatic me*! I gave him a brief version of my story of woe and he said that the bag was in the back room since they didn’t have a chance yet to put the item on the sales rack. I still have a bitter taste from the days I was looking for Bella, the ornament fairy. I’m still holding onto hope that I will see her offered again somewhere in a few months. Anyway, yes, lucky day indeed that the Zois Bellflower is on its way to me! I will take pics when she arrives.

Updated September 30, 2009: The long awaited Zois Bellflower bag (pic #2); I carried this on a recent dusk stroll.

I fell in love with them instantly! So feminine and vintagey; made of eggshell white tulle and lace! The previous Shabby Chic one was due for another cleaning.

Current Season at Anthro

January 26th, 2009 Posted in anthropologie | No Comments »

I can’t believe I’m going to say this but I think for me, this season is not the greatest for Anthro. Not many things are appealing to me =( except for the items I’ve featured below (I think some are also being faded out to make room for new stuff at this time now that I look at the pics again). I would have loved to own that cute yellow floral fabric chair but I don’t have room for it =( –>

SNAK at Anthropologie

October 22nd, 2008 Posted in anthropologie, Fashion | No Comments »

While browsing, I found this pretty coat from one of Anthro’s previous seasons. While I prefer darker colors for outerwear, it’s still really cute. Love the way this coat looks with cowboy boots.
