And so my hope moving forward is simply that Anthropologie stops trying to be what everyone else is trying to be. Don't compete against the J.Crews or the Madewells, the Shopbops or the Targets, the Tuckers or the Free Peoples. Don't worry about answering the trends. Don't be concerned...

How else are we supposed to expand our wardrobes and allow our styles to evolve if we don't wear items that fall outside our comfort zones? What's wrong with wearing something we know looks amazing and hoping that friends will dish out a few much-needed compliments? What fun is life if we...
