Anthropologie is one of those stores that carries oodles and oodles of cute clothing of all styles. Boho chic? Check. Vintage pin-up? You got it. Whenever I go in, I find so many items that can work in my closet. Unfortunately, I thought I could never bring them home with me because of the price. I’m a younger professional on a tight budget, so splurging $30 on a basic cotton top isn’t always the smartest and healthiest idea (a girl’s gotta buy groceries!).
However, after scouring thrift stores, I learned that I was totally wrong and that I can afford Anthropologie clothes…just not straight from the store.
I’ve found a lot of types of Anthropologie clothing and accessories while thrifting, both used and new with tags. They carry and distribute a large collection of brands, so sometimes it’s hard to even really tell what comes from the store. It’s taken me a while and I’m not sure I have them all nailed down, but I’ve tried to make sure I learn most of the store’s brands so that when I go thrifting, I know I’ve found a steal. Their house brands usually range in price from the $20s to $300s. Their other non-exclusive brands can be priced as high as $500 when not on sale.
In this post, I’m here to share some of my brand learnings and favorite finds from thrifting!
If I were to wear them anywhere, it would be to work. I work in an industry where the dress code is basically business casual so these would be perfect for that setting. However, if you work somewhere that is a little more formal, I could see these being worn under a blazer or cardigan with a statement necklace.
The odille top (above) is my favorite Anthropologie top from Goodwill that I found recently. It was almost brand new! I love that it’s super soft and is a luxurious pumpkin color. It’s great to wear to work or could be worn casually on a weekend day outing. Since the blouse is so detailed at the top, I wouldn’t wear a necklace, but rather, some small statement earrings.
Anthropologie has their own house of brands and ones that aren’t carried exclusively at their stores. You can probably find multiple of these on a single Goodwill excursion!
Anthro House Brands I’ve seen at Goodwill include:
- Sleeping on Snow
- Moulinette Soeurs
- Ric Rac
- Postage Stamp
Other brands carried by Anthropologie that I’ve seen at Goodwill:
- Plenty by Tracy Reese
- Ella Moss
- Rachel Pally
- Anna Sui
- Michael Stars
- Lauren Moffatt
Have you seen any of these brands at Goodwill? Which ones do you see most often?
