Anna and I are divided about Anthropologie. Anna loves it because it appeals to her "dreams of living in the country surrounded by books, cats, and a wood-burning stove." I usually hate it because it's chock full of overpriced fugwear for a crafty, forest-nymph lifestyle no one actually embodies, and if they do, they can't afford to shop at Anthropologie. The both of us chime in on the retailer's new "Giving" catalog, after the jump.
Dodai: This is pretty, though it might not work if you've got a big rack, sigh. Still, pair it with black pants and you've got an easy holiday party solution.
Anna: I have a small rack, so I love this unconditionally, even though I prefer sweatpants and tees over, well, everything else.(Showshoe blouse, $128)
Anna:I hate myself for loving this sort of stuff, but I'm sold. But is it just me or do these look more like owls than penguins? No matter: I'd take the middle guy with the vest and weekend bag.
Dodai: They're cute, I just can't look penguins anymore without thinking about how they've been pimped by Hollywood recently. (South for the winter ornaments, $14)
Dodai: Gloves are cool, mittens are warmer.
Anna: And both are bound to get lost within a week. (Nepalese garden mittens, $38)
Dodai: If I were domestic at all, I would admit that love these plates, but I'm not, so I can't. (But secretly, I do.)
Anna: I'd feel a little better about eating off plates with endangered animals if, well, I wasn't eating meat. (Expedition dessert plates, $12 each, in gazelle, giraffe, penguin and polar bear.)
Dodai: Brunette, blonde and redhead, but no brown girl. Frown.
Anna: What she said. (Remember, we posted about this before.) (Hobbyist ornaments, $24 each)
