A Jumble of Satin and Sweaterknit

I love Anthro’s literary peeps, the ones in charge of writing product descriptions. I’m somewhat of a word-nerd, so the ease in which they string descriptively unique words together claims my complete respect.

Take this piece, for instance.

Wearing: Skirt-Anthropologie Nubby Stripes Skirt, Top- Anthropologie Desert Rose Sweater, Belt-Anthropologie Dusk Blue Suede Belt, Shoes- Anthropologie Scarlet and Crimson Wedges

 It’s like pure poetry.

A jumble of satin and sweaterknit tea roses defy the arid climes of cotton-nylon to bloom with delicately beaded centers.” Who are you, product descriptor geniuses?

You had me at ‘jumble of satin’.

Second only to Anthropologie in product detail writing would be the literary prowess of Groupon deal of the day authors. I mean really, have you ever read them word for word? It’s entertainment.

For instance, take this deal of the day for a Serenity Farmhouse Inn stay in the Texas Hill Country.

Each cottage is outfitted with a spacious heart-shaped whirlpool tub that makes for a romantic spot to share a box of chocolates or create a giant heart-shaped jello shot.”

I mean really, you just can’t get this kind of material from a robot. A giant heart-shaped jello shot?  Love it.

Here’s to Anthro’s jumbles of satin and sweaterknit and heart-shaped jello shots.

    Molly, I just love your outfits! I wish you could be my personal shopper ;0) adore those descriptions!

    Where did you get the top, I have been looking for it forever, with no luck! Is it old of yours or a new acquisition? I so miss the embellished tops and sweaters like this so much!

    • I bought it off ebay about 5 years ago. I wanted it SO bad in the store but couldn't afford it at the time. Bought it for half the price a few months later. I hear ya on missing embellished tops- this one is so unique and garnishes compliments every time I wear it. I'd keep searching ebay and the trade market. One is bound to pop up eventually.

  3. Oh that is too funny– I find myself shopping in the store much more than online, so I really need to make a point to read these product descriptions more often from now on!

    LURVE this top on you, Molly! Love anything embellished too. I am gearing up for sweater season in the thrift stores. Hoping to score some cheap pretties to use for DIY versions of the Arte Cardi by Leifsdottir (already have a cream scarf with coral dots. Squeeee!), the Felted Lei Cardi, and the much sought after Corsage Jacket. I am soooo excited about these!
