let me guess, it has a circus theme and the models are wearing cute dresses....

How is it that I can tell you all about the new Anthropologie catalog, without ever seeing it?


Because every damn mormon-mommy-turned-design blog has talked about it.


All of you are clones.


But wait. You love "Anthro?" Really and truly? You aren't just like everyone else who likes it? Fine. Learn to say something besides I love this cover/I want everything so bad/I love love love Anthropologie.


I read 196 student essays on the same topic today, and they were more interesting.

Rant over.

BUT I LOVE ANTHRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why are you being so harsh????
And I haven't read any blogs about it. Yeeessss. I can't fathom spending 250 bucks on ONE glass. Sunglasses, yes, stemware, NO.

The Boob Nazi said...

Oh and YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE YOU CAN'T AFFORD THE CLOTHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(not that I'm implying that you're poor or anything... okay? okay.)

Brandi said...

I'm pretty sure I love you.

You know, in a non-creepy, non-stalkerish kind of way of course.

Caroline said...

Reading that made me snicker so loudly that I scared my poor pup!

great job mcb :)

Jessica said...

if it helps you feel any better, I'm not even exactly sure what anthro is, or its purpose, or why people like it especially mormon blogger mommies. just saying, if it is expensive in anyway, i won't buy it so it doesn't matter if I look at it or not.

Ru said...

I'll be honest ... I love looking at Anthropologie online. But I refuse to into the store. I know I wouldn't splurge, but watching people spend that much money on doorknobs makes me sad for humanity. DOORKNOBS.

Chloé said...

hahaha i loved this.

Liv said...

Clothes at Anthropologie look as if they should smell of moth balls in the back of my attic.

So ugly and over-priced and over-hyped.

Azúcar said...

I thew away the catalog today before I even looked at it. I just can't anymore.

And the next time they email be, I'm unsubscribing.

Nookleerman said...

You have 196 students? Holy crap! I can't imagine being responsible for that many kids. I can barely manage to keep 1 alive for the 2 hours a week my wife leaves me in charge. You have my admiration/pity.

Rynell said...

Nope, I don't dig that either. I sympathize with your rant.

TOWR said...

PPPPPBBBTTTTHHHHHHHHH to all the clone stores! And that's all I have to say about that.

NIKOL said...

We have an Anthropologie store nearby. I do not shop there. A sweater shouldn't cost me more than my car payment. They have pretty things. Nothing I'm dying to own.

A coworker recently bought a coat there that basically looked like a cape with sweater sleeves. But it was a coat. It...confused and disturbed me.

Aunt Spicy said...

I guess I don't read enough mormon-mommy-blogs, you will have to send me a list of your fav's so I can see what the deal is all about :-) Are they like the other blogs you sent me? Oh actually you must, we are about to be snowed in, it will keep me entertained!

I am an Anthro fan, I'll admit it...you need to stalk the sales on their website. BTW, did you also get the Urban Outfitter catalog? Totally cute Oxfords for $38. -$48. And no circus.

Becky said...

but if you buy from anthro - you are creating a totally unique (but still cute) look.... oh wait - sister so-in-so has that exact same scarf.....tragic

Lisa said...

I've never heard of it, but now I'm going to have to check it out to see what all the hype is about. Thanks....more mindless time wasting stuff that I didn't need...

Lena said...

I love you.

Melinda said...

I am proud to say I've never even SEEN an Anthropologie catalog. What I'm more interested in is how did you read 196 essays in a day? I haven't been able to even finish the 35 I have left in the last week...Maybe be there's something wrong with me.

Kimbooly said...

Please, please, can someone tell me what Anthro is?

I seriously haven't heard of it. Even though I'm a mormon mommy. (Does that technically make my blog a mormon mommy blog? It probably does since I just had a baby and so of course am posting lots of gushy comments and pictures of said angel, that really only my mom and siblings want to read/see)

Colt said...

Could I say I love Anthro if I was talking about the study of Humanity or Jane Goodall?

Tammy said...

I do like Anthropologie but I try to not let anyone know it. I don't want to be lumped with any of those people. I think I am safe since I am not playboy blonde with fake boobs. Why have a lot of Mormon girls turned into that????

Tammy said...

I realize I spelled it wrong....I should have just put ANTHRO

Jenny Donna said...

I love Antrho, but I'm beginning to think its because of the "Volcano" candle. I think it must be laced with some addictive substance, because it makes me immediately happy which makes me think their clothes will make me immediately happy.
