I'm on a roll, I can't stop (sourcing How I Met Your Mother l clothes!)

I'm sorry, I've totally posted about this before.  How cute are the clothes on How I Met Your Mother?  I'm pretty sure the costumers have recently realized that Anthropologie is an amazing source for cute, unique, screen-friendly clothes for the stylish ladies on the show (duh; we could have told them that).
It was really exciting when I first saw Anthro things on HIMYM but now it seems like they're everywhere!  I hope you're not too tired of seeing my screen shots of their costumes, but luckily, the season finale was this week so there won't be any more blog posts like this for a while! ;)
On an episode a couple weeks ago, see what Lily's wearing?
Then on the next episode, a girl Ted dates wears one of our favorite Anthro sweaters, the Blooming Lattice Cardigan (navy version of the one I copied):
And here's a mystery: later in the episode the same girl wears a very cute dress that looks Anthro, but is not part of their current merchandise... does anyone recognize it??  It's a mystery!
Recognize it?  Navy cotton printed with multi-color circles, and pleated front detail?  Looks Anthro to me.
Here's another mystery--in the season finale Lily wears a dress that looks awfully familiar.  I can't quite place it--anyone have any ideas?
I think it looks familiar because it's a basic style, similar to other ones Anthro has made (and Lily has worn), but I swear that ruffle is the same as this one on this Anthropologie dress:
It does look fun to copy!


  1. OH WOW, its funny how great minds think alike sometimes, stop by to see my post on Great American Classic Movies.

  2. I have the yellow top! My hubby picked it out for me for Valentine's Day. I saw it on HIMYM and got so excited!

  3. So cute! I love all things anthro

  4. Lily isn't wearing a dress, it's actually the Partly Cloudy Top. ;)

  5. the navy dress is marc by marc jacobs http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446240631&Goto=product&site_refer=AFF001&siteID=BolFSqx4S4U-Ma6uh7uJa4ZXjhoSc61N.A

  6. Robin wore a green shirt with matching lace around the neck a few weeks ago that I loved. I can't remember the episode though or find a screen shot. It was super cute- totally distracted me from what was going on in the episode!

  7. ModCloth also has dresses with a ruffle similar to that of the last dress: http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Dresses/Summer+Wheat+Dress

  8. Way to go! I would have never been able to place those womens dresses!
