What's with the fug, Anthro?

I was reading the lovely fashion blog Breakfast at Anthropologie last night, and came across this post about how ugly most of the recent Anthropologie clothes are. I'm a HUGE Anthropologie fan, so I was all "No way! Impossible! Their stuff is amazeballs!" But the photos she posted were pretty good proof, so I went over to the store's site to investigate for myself.

OMG, you guys. The designers from Anthropologie have obviously been abducted by aliens and replaced with a howler monkey. There is no other explanation for this crap.

Could I interest you in one of these lovely shirts?

How about a nice sweater to top that with?

No? How about a pretty little dress?

Or some shoes to complete the outfit?

I mean, holy crap, you guys! I'm a bigger fan of quirky fashion than most, and I totally delight in tasteless jewelry and accessories for fun, but this is just out of hand. WHAT is going on here??

Would you actually wear any of this? Should we send some kind of combination sniper/rescue team to the Anthropologie headquarters?

I'm very basic/classic in my fashion tastes, although I do like to mix it up every now and then. However, that stuff? Crap on a stick. YUCK. I'd never be caught dead near that. What is WRONG with people?! How do they think this is attractive?!

I think a couple of these blouses have layering potential, but not their best for sure....
