My love for Anthropologie has no boundaries.
From the eclectic and astoundingly creative use of mundane objects to decorate their store to the fact my home looks like an Anthropologie catalog threw up in it, I adore all things Anthro.
This past spring I was stuck in Austin, Texas for 24 hours and would you like to know where I went? No, not to State St to do some trendy shopping. No, not to one of the myriad of excellent food parlors scattered around downtown.
I went to the Anthropologie store.
As a matter of fact, I make it my business to visit the local Anthro store wherever I travel. Oh, and I have to mention the Paris Anthropologie was a joke. It was in the corner of a larger department store and it was tiny!
But just because I would happily live in an Anthropologie store doesn’t mean I can’t also tease them from time to time. As a matter of fact, every year at Christmas, Anthropologie seems to go a little cray-cray with the things they try to sell us. I seriously don’t know what they are thinking half the time! So this year I thought I would share with you nine items that are some of the ugliest or most useless (and ridiculously overpriced) I have ever seen.
This was the thing that started my tirade. At first I thought this was kind of cool. And it is. But for $14???? I would rather glue a jingle bell to a straw.
Something about using the horn of a dead animal to hold my curtains freaks me out. Also, it’s ugly.
Speaking of ugly, I have been loathing the weird woven wall hangings that are all the rage. They just scream tacky to me. Oh, and did I mention this beauty is SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! Seriously.
Even though I find these hideously ugly, I actually kind of like them. There is a certain modern Victorian thing going on which I dig.
These are like the hipster version of the large fork and spoon. They are vintage peels that were used to transfer pizza too and from a hot oven. I guess my question is why? I think I could find something far more glamorous for $198, like these gorgeous desk accessories which I am adding to my holiday wish list.
What parent thinks hanging mounted stuffed animal heads on their child’s wall is a good idea? Personally, I find them to be a bit scary looking!
I feel like these animal candle holders would look foolish for anything other than a Mad Hatter tea party!
My only complaint about this is that it is supposed to be for a little girl. I want one!
I have no words.
But I do have one question. WHY????
Ok Anthropologie. I’ve had my fun.
What is a little teasing between friends?
So tell me, would you ever purchase any of these items? Let me know in the comments.
