He's got a caged heart!

Der Meistersinger



I started this post on Friday, but didn't have time to finish. Now, browsing through I see that a whole bunch of these Fobots are missing, which leads me to conclude that they must have sold. That was impressively fast, considering their price and that they just appeared in the November catalog. Sure, $250-$450 by original art standards is not that high of a price to pay for a one-of-a-kind piece, that is if you're the type who actually has a budget for original art.

Me Likes!

Oh oh, Anthropologie is bursting at the seams with dreamy new arrivals.
My wish list has just doubled (unproportionate to my poor deflated wallet) .

Dotted Chiffon Blouse

Spirited Away Dress

Iced Capped Blouse - The new and in my humble opinion,
improved version of the Wavelet top.
The fabric on this one is airier and hence drapes better.

Wayward Cardigan

Blooming Boutonniere Scoopneck (These names are a mouthful!)

Sidewise Denim Skirt
This is not your ordinary denim skirt.

Swirling Villages Dress
Very flattering silhouette paired with a whimsical,
unique and somewhat folky pattern.
Definitely not something you see everyday.

Skirted Peacoat
So feminine and romantic, though I could have
done without the shiny buttons.

Through The Lens Coat

Soft Adornments

Oh, there's so much temptation on!
Here are some of my favorite, hand made soft adornments. As I'm sure I've said before, I'm in awe (didn't mean for that to rhyme) of creative people who manage to produce such beauty and grace with their own two hands!

by Petal Mix

Yellow Felted Necklace and Flower Pin - $30

Ivory Mohair Shawl - $40
This shawl is so poetic! There's something of Anna Karenina in it.
I can't get the image out of my mind.

Aqua Flower Scarf

Whimsical, nature inspired goodies.

Enchanted Forest Crocheted Scarf - $75

Leaflets Garland Necklace/Scarf - $68

Petite Garland - $58


Lula Necklace

Shoe Dilemma

I tried on a pair of shoes that I really like.
Size 6 pinched my toes.
Size 6.5 was big.
Should I go with the smaller size and hope they will stretch (what if they won't)?
Or should I go half size up and wear them with inserts (what if the shoes will stretch and become even larger)?
Some advice would be much appreciated.

Fantastic Creatures at Anthropologieville

Display design from Anthropologie at Rockefeller Center.

Not sure if it's apparent in the picture, but this fish is made out of paper and plastic cutlery. Just goes to show you that real creativity does not require fancy and pricey materials.

I love this fuzzy guy. Check out his tail made of plastic forks! Not sure what animal he's supposed to be, but I'd gladly take him home.

Ever wonder what happens to the display elements that have outlived their usefulness? Some of these displays are real works of art and perhaps Anthropologie should dedicate a portion of their website to selling the retired ones.
I had a 50mm lens on my camera and couldn't step back far enough to get the whole tail in, but you get the picture. Yes, those are chop sticks in red wrappers.
Kudos to the creator(s) of these fantastic creatures!
