Twisted Tuesday: Candyland's Gift Guide for Vogue
Candy Pratts Price’s Vogue Gift Guide. It starts with a $1600 pair of Manolo’s. I got to #11 and had to stop and share this ridiculousness…as #11 is a $40,000 PERFUME BOTTLE. Who is Candy Pratts Price? Right. She used to be a big boss at Style.com and is now a big boss at Vogue.com. Here is a pic so you can have a face to the name: Anywhoodle. Happy Twisted Tuesday!
Wee People at Free People
From Dodai Stewart at Jezebel. “Someone is not happy to be modeling, and really actually kind of pissed that her teddy bear was turned into boots.” Hilarious. -JH
Thursdays are for Kitties!
One of our fave sites, Refinery 29, is giving away 12 of United Bamboo’s Kitty Calendars. Fashion and cats are pretty much the best (OBViously). The worst is that these calendars are like $50—and by ‘like’ I mean, ARE $50. To get in on the fashion cat giveaway, head to R29’s Facebook page and submit your most fashionable kitty pic. Huge proponents of all things...
See this pail?
Now see that $128.00 in your pocket? Well kiss it goodbye if you wanna take this item home with you. Wishing Well Ice Bucket: A pail of your favorite wine or bubbly is yours to fetch, with this handpainted chiller, made of heavy-duty stoneware. This is a woooooonderful item. You can amaze your friends by putting ice in it! Plus you can totally trick them into thinking...
Urban Outfitters' craptastic new logo just a...
Yep. This is for real, folks. As much as I’d like to tell you that I actually shat this out with my eyes closed using Microsoft Word’s “Word Art” feature, I’m afraid I cannot. It’s the new logo that now adorns Urban Outfitters’ web site and news of this travesty is being disseminated across the Interwebs faster than an...
Barney's, this stinks.
I’m sitting here at my computer, literally speechless. I have no idea what Barney’s was thinking with this. Cabbage and foil? Those aren’t even the worst! It’s an octopus! ON HER HEAD! She’s got…crabs? (Insert eye-roll, nose flare and grimaced face.) So, this catalog does none of the following: 1) Make me want to purchase a damn thing. 2) Make me...
UPDATED AGAIN:To Wait Or Not To Wait?
So, here’s the deal, friends. I’ve run into a typical Anthro-nundrum. I want this dress. It’s $148. Do I wait for it to go on sale and chance it? Or do I buy it now? What do you think? UPDATE: I waited and one of our lovely readers informed me that it was on sale…for half off! Naturally, it’s on its way :) Thanks Mimi! UPDATED AGAIN: I went to Anthro to...
So I get into my day job (which involves celebrity news) bright and early this morning to find that this happened over the weekend: Oh, and this: I know this has nothing to do with Anthropologie, but I just had to share my early morning pain with our loyal FYA readers. Seriously, are there people out the who actually like Ke$ha? —ML
Anthropologie Accessories stores expanding in 2011
Our friends at Stylelist reported this week that Anthropologie (a division of Urban Outfitters) will open a second spin-off accessories-only store, aptly named Anthropologie Accessories, in the “Northeast” early next year. If you’ve never heard of this specialized version of Anthro, don’t worry. The first accessories-only store opened its doors in the...
There's a zombie...
… on the cover of the December Anthropologie catalog. I will admit she’s the prettiest undead person I’ve ever seen, but I definitely don’t want to buy that coat. — ML
Urban Outfitters Takes Us Around The World
Urban Outfitters (Anthro’s big sister) added a new tab to their shopping menu called “Around The World.” Sounds like fun! Digi-national shopping without currency conversions? We’re in! Browse, browse, browse… WAIT A HOT MINUTE. This sweater is $329? And this is only $58… While the first one is OBVIOUSLY more polished and also cashmere (I know, I...
The Saddest Life (On Loop)
I guess in celebration of the seasonal turn and the slight chill in the air, Anthro decided to put a few little vids together on how to layer up and do your daily tasks while maintaining your perfect Euro-craft look. I’m not going to lie. I totally want to have the life where I go around looking model-y and do things like shop for petit raisin rolls, pick out dahlias and read the paper at...
