Anthro: USA May 2014
Anthropologie’s May catalog arrived in the mail this past weekend, and I found several American-made pieces that I really love. There are still a few questionable products in the catalog and the manufacturing location is unclear, so I’m only focusing on those brands that I know and trust from past purchases. All of these outfits are just things to admire, since my clothing challenge starts in a few days.
Dolan’s Pieced Petal Pullover is truly stunning and the lace detail is beautiful. I’m not sure how that banded waist would look on my shape, but it’s a lovely top overall. Their entire line at Anthropologie is domestically made, and the collection is very large, too.
The Campanula Tank by Liberty Garden is a perfect summer top, and the color and detail makes it easy to wear with everything from denim shorts to dressy skirts. I wasn’t previously familiar with Liberty Garden, but they have five pieces currently at Anthropologie, all made in the United States.
Weston Wear is one of my favorite brands, and the Mismado Dress is really gorgeous. I love the contrasting patterns of the skirt paired with the ivory lace bodice, and this piece is great for all summer long. There are several dresses available in this line at Anthropologie and all are domestically made.
And Wilt is another brand I just discovered, with three dresses currently at Anthropologie. All are made in the United States and the Tulipan Tank Dress is a very pretty summer dress that could easily transition to fall.
As always, this series is meant to show how you can make more responsible clothing choices by doing a little research at your favorite stores. I’m a fan of Anthropologie’s style, but I’m also on the hunt for more American-made brands to include in my Style USA series.
