The June 2016 Anthropologie Tag Sale prep post

Anthropologie's semi-annual Tag Sale is coming tomorrow!! The last few rounds have been full of twists, turns and surprises sure to delight most any sale lover. These days sales and promotions are more frequent, so the Tag Sale isn't quite the huge deal it once was. It's still a lot of fun though!

Inside, What is the Tag Sale? And what can you expect? Explanations, rumors and guesses inside. Thanks as always to the generous employee tips that helped compile this post. We'll play the Tag Sale Guessing Game later today!

Tag Sale Update: Anthropologie's semi-annual Tag Sale to begin on Thursday!!!

Monday, June 20, 2016

This just in, from my little blue birdies sprinkled around Anthroland: The semi-annual Tag Sale will begin on Thursday! (June 23.) This twice a year event involves a larger than normal set of new sale markdowns, and usually some extra percentage off sale (extra 20-30% off usually for the Summer Tag Sale).

As always, this sale is meant to sell excess inventory, so often the best deals come after the Tag Sale. I will run a Tag Sale prep post on Wednesday to explain what this sale is all about and what we can expect this year. Stay tuned for updates!

Five new things I'm loving at Anthropologie this morning

Yes, yes to the print and shape of the Pineapple Halter Dress ($188).

I hope everyone had a successful Anthro Day weekend! Alas, I had to sit the promo out due to timing and way too much going on (my boyfriend's birthday, my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, Father's Day, etc. etc. etc.). However, that hasn't stopped me from adding even more to my Anthropologie wishlist with some cute new pretties that have popped up recently!

My newest wishlist topper is the Pineapple Halter Dress ($188) you see above. How cute is that print? And the polka dots -- yes! This dress has the same shape as other Eva Franco dresses like the Canary Lined Dress ($168) and the Saybrook Stripe Dress (mini-review, on me here, for fit guidance!).

The other 4 things I'm loving this morning are the Eyelet Off-The-Shoulder Top ($78, no I'm not sick of off-the-shoulder yet), the Tiered Lace Dress ($178) -- although those cups look way too small for a 32DD thanksfornothingAnthropologieboo, the Moana Silk Dress ($228) and the new blue-green color of the Paimpont Silk Dress ($198). LOVE!

What new pretties are you loving at Anthropologie today?

Dear Anthropologie Bring These Items Back (Round 2)

Thursday, June 16, 2016

The Aida Cowlneck (review), one of about 1.5 million items I'd like to see Anthropologie re-release.

A few years ago, Anthropologie celebrated its 20th anniversary by re-releasing some of its favorite pieces in an Archival collection. (You can read about it in this post, and reviews here.) Rumors are stirring that Anthropologie is thinking of doing another Archival collection and this community has some ideas! We've visited this topic once before and I'd love to see all those items let's have a fresh discussion with even more goodies I'd like to see at Anthro again.

I know you're all eager to discuss this topic; I have spent the last few days rounding up some items I could think of. It's been a fun blast from the past and I'm sure there are many items I'm forgetting. I'll start the conversation by sharing some of the items I'd like to see back and then please share yours in the comments...

Afternoon delight: Outfit Inspiration

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

My boyfriend's birthday is on Friday and I've been looking for just the right outfit for his party. (Here's the outfit I'm wearing to our couple-only birthday dinner.) This outfit above, from Nordstrom featuring Free People, is exactly what I wanted. Short, fun and flirty-cute! The dress is also available via Free People's website, though oddly not in this color. The collar necklace is by Kendra Scott though I rented it rather than purchase it for now (if you're interested in trying Rent the Runway, here's my personal invite link!). I'm finishing off the look with these heeled sandals in the red color.

I'll share photos on Instagram later this week of how the look turns out...and who knows, I might make a last-minute change. What's your outfit inspiration today? (I'm also totally loving this Free People tote, in several colors.)
