anthropologie catalog, autumn 2001~

calling all yankie spirits~

i first discovered “anthropologie” in 2001. i was delighted that an entire company was dedicated to yankie secretary style. between the twin evils of expense and impossible fit {hello sewing}, i’ve never owned anything of theirs, but their catalogs still inspire my sartorial choices.
step into the way-back machine and say hello to 2001~
her sweater is great, but her hair cut is even better.
amazing at waist jeans like jane birkin would have worn in the 70s. my jealousy knows no bounds. i still haven’t summoned the moxy to make a pair of denims.

in only a few short years from this photo, every pair of pants would end 3″ above your crotch and gift all the ladies in america with a muffin top and a whale tail. yet another reason why the aughts were terrible {aside from economic and global destruction.}  

the lovely grey haired model, the elegant ladies who look like they might actually be older than 17, and sweet child models who look like children instead of hollywood actors. anthropologie, this was your high point.

and yes, i had fantasies about “camping” like this, which is how i imagine every wes anderson character camps {aside from in museums.}

  1. Do you own this entire catalog? I’ve long been searching for images of the woman in the bottom one-to-one one on their left, wearing the doggie sweater. I endeavoured to wear my hair like hers and haven’t been able to convey the style to any stylist adequately! If you’d be willing to share additional images, I’d be so delighted.

    1. Oh no! Most of my apartment is packed up including that catalog! I will be unpacking sometime in January!
