Wouldn’t camping be SOO cute and dainty if we could do it the Anthropologie way?
Check out Anthropologie’s Camping section on their website for a good laugh!
As much as I love Anthropologie and am inspired by them daily, this is so Anthro of them to suggest that we should buy their frivolous camping supplies for our next trip. Btch please, there are bears and mountain lions and raccoons and who knows what else that aren’t hindered by your white “Sumatra Cabana” or its lofty price of $698.00. The freezing temperatures of the mountains and the dirt all around the campground are also not hindered by your beige, thin “Florabunda Sleeping Bag” for $188.00. Here’s what they have to say about their sleeping bag:
“Love the outdoors, but can’t fathom the idea of leaving the creature comforts behind? Why not camp out in style? Designed with the glamper (or glamorous camper) in mind, this hot-house inspired bedroll is fully reversible and dyed by hand.”
Oh JOY! Good thing it’s reversible! I wouldn’t want to sleep in a tent without my floral-printed, dyed-by-hand linens!
(Does anyone else notice the missing polka dot on the sleeping bag?)
I realize that Anthropologie’s probably not actually serious about this… but come ON! Camping is just NOT a pretty activity. Don’t get me wrong, I’m truly in love with camping (and it’s a huge reason of why I chose to study the environment in the first place) but I digress.
This is quite possibly my favorite item listed in their camping section:
You could buy these lovely balls for camping for a whopping $320.00. WHAT THE HELL?
This is just another example of Anthro’s frivolity and ridiculous prices.
…but I will always love Anthropologie.
What do you think? Are you a “glamper”?
