anthro in wonderland

I've always sworn that Anthropologie employs little gremlins that infiltrated my dreams. These little creatures are always busily taking notes on the things I want and desire most and then they go back and make them in their little gremlin factories and then sell them to me for exorbitant prices.

So it should really come as no surprise to me that during a period when I'm even more obsessed with children's books than usual, Anthro has come out with something clearly taken directly from my daydreams and night dreams in the form of their November catalog, which is inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

I was honestly so taken by the whole concept (and how whimsical and odd this seemed, even for Anthropologie) that I hardly even noticed the clothes and goods the first time around. I mean, who has the brainpower to pay attention to a sweater when there's a giant speckled chicken on a leash?

But of course, no one looks at this things just once, so the beautiful little details in fabric and embellishment come out upon the second or third perusal of the spread. Which is just about when you realize yet again, that yes, yes. Anthropologie knows exactly what it's doing.


  1. I have yet to receive my Anthro catalog but now I wait in anticipation!!!!! What beautiful and magical photos!!! I think I will cut them out and hang them on my walls!!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. I just received my catalog in the mail yesterday and have looked at it several times already. The bunny in the tree topper? The fox? It's too much! I love love love!!! I agree that it is AMAZING how Anthro seems to know just what you need when you need it.

  3. I love Anthropologie. I'm always inspired by their designs. Thanks for sharing.

  4. The anthropology catalogs always give me inspiration - everything is so strange and beautiful!
