Stream of consciousness: Anthropologie July catalogue

Want to flip through the July catalogue on your own? Here it is.


Flowing Pointelle Cardi ($118)
...is that an "o" or a "0" she's holding up?
auspicious start...


Sunlit Angles Sheath ($228)
...love this dress and the belt.
A little J.Crew reminiscent though, no?...


Lasata Jacket ($118), Thousand Days Skirt ($78)
& Crimson Cutout Heels ($148)
...I just adore this outfit...


Ruffles-Upon-Ruffles Tee ($78)
& Honeyed Peplum Skirt ($258)
...this one too!...


Lilac Ombre Heels ($148)
...d'orsay Anthro-style...


Endless Pleats Cardigan ($98) &
Go-To Chinos ($88)
...is she a contortionist,
or does she just need a loo?...


Great Lengths Sweater ($88),
Saturated Sash ($88),
Languid Layers Skirt ($98)
& Teardrop T-Straps ($138)
...Spider-Model prepares
to scale another wall...


Hush-Hush Tee ($68) & Crosshatch Dress ($158)
...I thought this was questionable styling
even before I saw the knot on the tee. Ow!...


Fireglow Bedding ($58-$348)
...after seeing the finished result, Alice once again
questioned her decision to allow the Mad Hatter
to decorate her summer share...
(truth be told I think it looks pretty cool)


Terai Folding Chairs family ($198)
...oh, this is how my apartment looks
when I have dinner guests over too!...



Rosette Bedding ($58-$268)
...what place do you come in at the horse show
to get a patterned ribbon?!?...


Tiered Blueberry Skirt ($98) &
Delightfully Askew Blouse ($88)
...we now enter the Urban Outfitters
portion of the catalogue...


Edges & Angles Dress ($148) &
Golden Plum Cardi ($128)
...I like the dress. But what the
heck is with that big shadowy hand?
King Kong? The undertones bother me...


Inverness Trench ($188)
...this shot REALLY bothers me and
the model looks just as disturbed...

Yes! That last shot was a big, big mistake. Yikes.

Has anyone tried on the Thousand Days skirt? I am so intrigued by it but am worried about it having the exposed zipper.

Hi, I really love your blog- incredibly informative about anthro. i have a question- how did you make images of the clothes on the website, (the rollover ones)?

Hi Anonymous, for the basic shots I use a screen capture tool called Jing. It's a great free app -- you can draw a screen capture box of any size, and then add text, arrows, etc to it. You can share the image on the interwebs or save it to your computer. For the fancier stuff I use Photoshop.

I must say, I love photo # 3.And I also don't get the "shadowy hands" too. Yeah King kong hands.

This is by far one of my favorite catalogs. It has two of my favorite things: anthro and modern architecture.

Thanks for posting!

I love Anthropologie! Especially their visual displays; they're so creative. I often look to Anthro for inspiration when I create my own window displays, which I've been posting on my fashion/art blog.

They have the best layouts! I even like the one w/the shadow of the finger 'grabbing' the coattail. Very creative. Keep up the fantastic work :-0
