New Arrivals

My favorites of the new arrivals.

Anemone Expanse Tee - $78

Upended Poppy Tee - $68

Grown In The Shade Top - $68
I always had a thing for 3/4 peasant sleeves.

Enveloped Petal Cardigan - $248


Blooms Revealed Cardigan - $128
Something different. This cardigan reminds me of what ladies might have worn in the 30's and 40's, an era that I am very much fascinated by for many reasons. Hopefully I will expound on this in a later post.

Vines & Buds Cardigan - $128

Horizon Line Dress - $138
This dress looks so sweet and feminine.

To Plaid or NOT to Plaid

Am I the only one who finds plaids on shirts horrendously ugly?
I could understand on a skirt....maybe, but not on shirts. It reminds me of a clip South Park did once. It was a parody on a commercial for a toy action figure, The ALABAMA man. He wore a red plaid shirt and came in a set with a beer can and a bowling ball (no offense to anyone residing in Alabama).

If I wanted something this ugly, why would I bother paying Anthropologie prices for it?
I'm sure big plaid shirts are not hard to come by in stores like Target and Sears.

Ebay In Person

I've just received an e-mail that literally had me stunned. It seems, E-bay is planning on opening a physical retail space during the holiday season on West 57th Street in NYC. The store is due to open on November 20th and will be a 5,500 square foot space housing apparel from popular fashion brands. When the article went on to list these brands and I saw Anthropologie on the list...well all kind of day dreaming set in. Most e-bay items tend to sell for under $40. Picture yourself surround by Anthropologie stuff with Target-like price tags. I'm getting dizzy just thinking about it. Then of course somewhere in my fantasy I hear a stampede of heels and crazed women with wild hair grabbing stuff from under my nose. Oh dear. Where was I?
Oh yes, some of the other brands mentioned were, Norman Kamali, Michael Kors handbags, L.A.M.B., Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue and Vera Wang Princess fragrances. That's not mentioning electronics and home items.
Sounds good in theory, but am I ready to brave a mad herd of discount holiday shoppers?
