Every now and then there are a few items on Anthropologie’s website that make you want to scratch your head and say what were they thinking. I’ve posted some items that struck me as a little odd and in some instances the prices were just unbelievable. I’m not making fun of these items, but I just thought it would be fun to share them with everyone. And who knows maybe one day (if we are lucky) these pricey items will get marked down with some deep discounts. Let me know if you have found any other Anthro items that made you do a double take...Enjoy!
Chrysanthemum Crown Headband…$218.00
I’m not sure I would ever pay over $200.00 for a headband, but I’m sure that there are some women out there that would. I love the look of the headband and I think it would be a great statement piece. However, the price will have to come down a few times before I would consider buying this one.
Shrewd Stitches Stole…$238.00
This fox-friendly scarf seems like a great concept, but personally it’s not for me. From what I can tell this hand-knit wool scarf is well made and made with quality wool.
Bird's Eye View Earrings…$268.00
When I first saw the picture of these earrings I didn’t understand why they were priced at $268.00. However, after reading the description I learned that these unique baubles are silk-wrapped freshwater pearls. Who would have ever known these were pearls?
I’m not sure what’s going on with this necklace. This is a bib style necklace with various stones, ribbon and chains. I would not considering purchasing this necklace - no matter how low the price came down. It’s just not my style.
Look Sharp Corset Belt…498.00
At first I thought that the price listed for the belt was a typo. I have to say this belt does look sharp, but I don’t know if it’s $500s sharp. This belt would be a nice addition to anyone’s wardrobe. It won’t be in my wardrobe anytime soon, unless it went on a major sale.
Encrusted Sea Cuff…$498.00
This a beautiful cuff full of shells, coral branches, freshwater pearls and glittering stones. This is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art. This cuff comes in four different colors – pink, black, white and blue. The designer, Emily Miranda, was inspired by her favorite painting, Giuseppe Arcimboldo's Water (see here for the painting). I personally couldn’t afford this piece, but this would be a great addition for any collector.
Uncovered Quartz Jewelry Box…$550.00
Here is another beautiful piece that I would love to have if the price was right. This is a one compartment jewelry box that is made of leather and natural stones. I imagine that this jewelry box is pretty heavy because of all of the stones. I would love to see this one in person.
