It was 87° with 95% humidity and some of us were dripping with sweat when we plucked the new Anthropologie catalog from the mailbox. Inside? Tights! Sweaters! Suede! Yes, they're already thinking about Autumn. So now we are too. Are you ready to embrace deep violet and chunky knits? The best and the worst of the new catalog, after the jump.

This is an awfully sweet dress that my boobs will never fit into in a million years. Shall we focus on the (adorable, affordable) hat instead?

If you can wear that sweater dress, you've got less to work with in the hip and thigh area than I do. Kudos. And please note that the sweater from the cover is really borderline crazytown spin-art.

I like the tights, the skirt and the shoes. The jacket thing is not working for me. And I hate to act catty and stabby but I sort of want to punch this woman. Not the model. The "character" she is playing. Who wears stuff like that and stands like that. Fuck off.

Ooh la la! I love this. I love cardigans! And inverted pleats, and stripes, and cute skirts, and those shoes. I always want to dress like an "insouciant ingenue," but I think if I wore this it might come off as "spinster schoolteacher."

There's so much hideosity I don't know where to look. At the bird, I guess. He seems to have crapped all over that dress.

Sure, on this model, this coat is floaty and feminine. Anyone else will look like a demented escapee from a summer theater production of Tartuffe.

My mom would like this dress. She loves butterflies. I am not so inclined. It is not my steez, as the kids say.

Why yes, that is a mouse nestled in that shoe. This is what passes for "quirky" at Anthropologie.

Ok, I wasn't here yesterday because I was moving but I want to say two things about that first dress and tuckable shirts:

1. There is a version of that first dress (the light cotton button-up shirt short-sleeved dress) at H&M right now with an elastic waist, and if you can get your hands on one DO IT. It is the most universally flattering dress I have ever seen and is so comfortable that it is a true struggle not to wear it every single day.

2. Tuckable shirts can be a problem, but an easy way around it (and a look I often find a little more flattering with wide-legged pants, which I wear often, even on my rather stumpy 5'4" person legs [the key is heels, surprise]) are simply shorter shirts. Ones that stop just under your bellybutton, ones that would look really weird with normal hip-fitting jeans. It's the same elegant line as you would get with the tuck, without the tucking.
