Anthro, Urban, and their lesser-known Sisters...

It's not a secret that I'm an Anthrophile. I unabashedly love all things Anthropologie.

Anthro is pretty much my dream outfit, dream kitchen, dream home decor, dream world, and there's nothing that can be done about it.
Have you met Anthropologie's sisters?

I am sure you've met her edgy, hipster sister Urban Outfitters (or as she likes to nick-name herself, UO):

What about Free People? She is their free-spirited sister who loves to explore and roam wherever her dreams take her:

Leifsdottir is the more refined of the sisters. She's very classy and likes to make an entrance.

Then there's Terrain. She's outdoorsy. She loves to get her hands dirty and potter around outside.

And I heard the news that they're revealing to us another sister in their family! Her name is BHLDN. Supposedly she's a real romantic. Totally in love with lace and frills and all things wedding. I can't wait to meet her!

Which of the sisters are you better friends with?

Ah, I'm totally with you when you say that Anthropologie is your dream outfit, dream kitchen, dream decor, and dream world. I always find myself so inspired to do something girly or crafty too, when I go in to shop! :] Can't wait for the girlier, WEDDING sister! It'll be so much fun to peruse and save photos/ideas/inspiration for a future special date. :]

Are these all partner stores? Because, if so, I had no idea!

Lindsey said...

Don't you just wish you could have an expense account with an endless supply of wardrobing from these sparkling diamonds?!

Welcome to the family! I first met Urban when I was real young and fell in love real fast. I think BHLDN is going to be my new best friend.

I had no idea there were so many girls in the family!! Still, Anthro is my fave :)

Notes from Holly St. said...

Anthro and I are best friends...she can do no wrong but I also love Free People. I didn't about BHLDN...thanks for the heads up! :)

Gloria said...

Amanda said...

Oh, my word. You may have just changed my life. I know about Anthro and UO, but not the others! Woo hoo!

oh Dionne, I'm SO in love with that chair in the first pic. so pretty! xo

shealennon said...

Wow, is it sad that I didn't know they were related? I LOVE Anthro, but UO is more my speed financially. I'm less familiar with the others, but they look worth checking out!

Looking Glass said...

Thanks for the introduction Dionne! As you know we don't have Anthro in Australia so the only sister I really knew of was UO! How exciting does the romantic label sound?

I love Anthropologie but I have to say - I'm a huge fan of the edgier Urban Outfitters and those tree-huggers Free People. I could buy compass necklaces and black combat boots all day long from them. Oh yes.

Just watch me! :)

the southern hostess said...

Unfortunately for my wallet, I'm best friends with Anthro.

Lillian (Unstitched.) said...

I love all things related to Anthropologie :) Seriously, seriously love. I love visiting every single store I see whenever I travel, because each shop is so different, and they all have such amazing installations!! (And I also love UO, Leifsdottir, Free People, Terrain. Like I said, love all things Anthro :)

Laura said...

Have a nice weekend!

Haha what a cute post. I have to admit I know most of the sisters, but I am not familiar with Leifsdottir and terrain. I myself am totally an Anthropologie lover! If I could build my home inside one those stores, and have my entire wardrobe bought there I would be on cloud nine!!!
Have a great weekend :)

I used to be a UO kinda girl, but now I'm definitely an Anthropologie fan! BHLDN sounds lovely!

oh, hello friend. said...

:: sigh :: anthropologie is the ultimate company in the world! haha, their brand and all their other companies are so gosh darn cute. I think BHLDN will be no less exception and every blog will have a post about it on their launch day. haha. happy weekend!

Oh wow! It looks just magical, unfortunately we probably won't get one here in Toronto for awhile (we don't have a Free People, Terrain, or Leifdottir yet). I think I'd definitely take a trip down south through to visit one though when the time comes for me to get married.

I just started to blogger. Still don’t know how to search followers. I am middle-aged Japanese woman. I came your page through photojoy. I wonder if I can be one of your followers.
