Bored With Anthropologie

Today I have another complaining post for you. Sad, but I need to get it out. I feel that Anthropologie has totally lost its touch. I've been so bored with their selection lately. Though the selection is large, I feel that it's too diluted. It seems like Anthropologie is trying to reach out to a broader customer base, and in the process loosing their unique identity.

I used to fall in love with everything at Anthropologie a few years back, but at this point, even if I semi-like something, it's way too easy to convince myself to do without it. I'm just not inspired anymore. Do you hear me, Anthropologie? I'M LACKING INSPIRATION! Good for my wallet, bad for my closet. Though I have plenty of gorgeous Anthropologie clothes from previous years, I would like to continue feeding my inspiration and my closet with new, unique, high quality, vintagy looking, flattering styles, which at this point are rare finds even at Anthropologie. It's a shame. They really had a good brand going which is now steadily sliding downhill.

How many loose, shapeless shirts and tunics with 80's overtones do I really need in my wardrobe? That's right, NONE! Yet, Anthropologie offers way more of these than I have the patience to put up here for show and tell. 

Perhaps this is trendy? I don't know. I'm not a trend-savvy type of person. All I know is pretty vs ugly.  I was hoping that Anthropologie is above offering ugliness whether it's "in" or not. But clearly I was mistaken.

Lets examine some of Anthrooogie's new arrivals.

And what is this monstrosity, priced at $288?

No, don't try to justify it. It's ugly, plain and simple.
Maybe if you're 19 and weigh 90lb you can somehow get away with 
wearing this, but if that's the case, 
you are not exactly Anthropologie's target client.

The name says it all.

Everything is just so big and loose! And what's with those bizarre colorful patterns? Looks like something my grandma used to wear. Oh Anthropologie this is all just too much! 

So where do I shop now? Any ideas? And what are the chances of Anthropologie regaining it's edge by next season?

Dr. Hauschka Natural Cosmetics On SALE

Zulily is having a sale on one of my favorite skin-care and cosmetics brands.

Dr. Hauschka products are packed with natural, plant and fruit derived goodness for your skin and free of chemicals. I've purchased many of her products over the years and never yet been disappointed. Currently, I have Dr. Hauschka eye pencil, translucent makeup, maskara and eye cream in my makeup bag. If you have sensitive skin, or just prefer to use more natural products, I highly recommend giving Dr. Hauschka a try.
