Boden Shops at Anthropologie

As I was leafing though the new Boden fall catalog I came upon this page and had myself a nice little chuckle.

What you're seeing here is a Boden (British clothing catalog) model drinking out of an Anthropologie cup. And why not? From what I hear the English take their tea time very seriously and if you're young and hip (or middle aged and hip), you know Anthropologie is a great place to go for your teacup collection.

While we're on the subject of Boden, I have to add that I'm not thrilled about their Fall '08 catalog. The clothing is ok, but I'm irked by the fact that they shot most of the catalog in NYC. I guess people who don't live here may feel differently about seeing NY streets on catalog pages, but personally I see way too much of NY in reality. The reason I enjoy leafing through an Anthropologie catalog is because it has an element of fantasy land, someplace where I'm not. In some ways (Though very different from Anthropologie) Boden also had that quality until now. I don't know about you, but I definitely tend to buy more stuff when their's an appeal of the "Far and Away" attached to it.

When I was looking at my Boden catalog and came across the page with the teacup I blurted out "that's Anthropologie!" My husband gave me a silly look...haha.

I am very close to purchasing that aqua polka-dot blouse!
