Welcome to our Anthropologie archive! We hope to be the go-to repository and resource to find your favorite style or revisit your Anthro favorites. We are a small collective of Anthropologie afecionados who are tired of wading through search results and blog posts hoping to find details on our favorite pieces.
Images used on this site are from a variety of sources. Images sourced from Anthropologie (either Anthropologie.com and their catalogs) are property of their parent company and have been referenced to their original source whenever possible. We are in no way affiliated or endorsed by Anthropologie. We also have photos of our own Anthropologie pieces, and we ask if they are shared, pinned, reposted, reblogged or otherwie redistributed to be please reference our site appropriately. Enjoy!
As Anthro collectors trying to find a specific Anthropologie piece can be challenging. There is a disconnect of information for many buyers and re-sellers who only have a piece of the information:
– The catalog name but not the brand which produced it
– A description of something they in store
– A piece of clothing they know is Anthropologie but are not able to track down the name or specifics.
We hope to help connect those dots, by making sure items listed here easily cross-referenced by brand, name, year, etc.
The second part of our mission is to help buyers and sellers identify actual Anthropologie pieces.
The search for out of production Anthropologie clothing is complicated by the rampant mislabeling of non-Anthropologie clothing as Anthropologie on the major resale venues.
While it is glaringly oblivious to many that Anthroplogie does not sell Forever21 clothing, search results are flooded with “anthro-esque” brands labeled as “Anthropologie”. There are also the gray-area brands (we call them “guest brands”) that are not Anthropologie produced, but have been sold there from time to time like Ana Sui or Cory Lynn Calter. Then there is the most confusing group: a dozen or so brands that share the same RN# as Anthropologie, as they are produced by Anthro’s parent company Urban Outfitters, but are not sold at Anthropologie (ie. Free People, Ecote, Pins + Needles, etc). We will be posting a number of guides in our Resources section as the site grows. Including a Our Guide to Anthro Brands and a guide to commonly mislabeled brands.
We hope to help make the hunt for your favorite Anthro pieces easier, and fun too while revisiting some old favorites. Who knows you just might find your long lost Anthropologie piece or a new favorite to hunt for.

I bought my first Anthropologie piece in 1998: a black wool flared skirt with black crinoline rosettes. Sadly it disappeared sometime during multiple moves in college. I might have lost that one, but that shopping trip opened the door to growing closet full of Anthro pieces.
Out of college I supplemented my income selling estate sale finds and the bulk of my vintage clothing collection online. Soon I branched into selling contemporary pieces out of own closet as well. Twelve years and a few career changes later I’m a still re-selling clothing online. I love re-homing Anthro clothing especially, as there are so many collectors who are thrilled to have found a piece they’ve been searching hi and low for.
As a buyer, I relate when I finally tracked down Eyelet Silk Dress by LIL I was ecstatic. It remains my all time favorite piece and was the first entry in our archive.
Thanks for reading along!
