Checking in with Anthropologie's latest (non-lookbook) new arrivals

How'd I miss the Lavendel Dress ($228) in my August catalogue preview??

My Anthropologie August 2014 catalogue arrived in the mail yesterday and I've dog-eared several pages. I dog-eared them! First time in months. With retailers on the cusp of Fall shopping is getting exciting again...even if I can't picture wearing any of this stuff for at least another couple of months. Inside, some non-lookbook new Anthropologie arrivals that caught my eye. What has me excited, what might not work, and what's still missing.

Well, well, well Anthropologie! What kind of promo do we have here? Today only you can get Free Shipping on your Anthropologie.com order of ANY AMOUNT using the code justbecause. I'm still grumpy about missing out on anthro day this past Saturday -- I'd like a do-over please Anthro! -- but this is a nice treat. Now's an excellent time to try out any of those online exclusives you've been pining over...or perhaps something from the lovely new August arrivals? Check out the catalogue preview here in case you missed it.

Now all Anthropologie needs to do is put it ALL together -- have an anthro day with free shipping, no minimum. In the meantime, picks inside!

Eye Candy: Anthropologie August 2014 Catalogue

Veld Bib Necklace ($48), Metallic Crossbody Bag ($128).
A look I could actually wear to work!! Wonders never cease.

Anthropologie headed over to the Netherlands for their August 2014 Lookbook, taking pictures both within Amsterdam and around the countryside. (Windmills!) They have a video and a featurette up on their blog about the catalogue locale, though the lookbook itself isn't yet up to shop. Preview time!

Right off the bat I noticed how these catalogue shots are beautiful, saturated and romantic-feeling. Perhaps one step above realistic into dreamland. That's everything I want from an Anthropologie lookbook! It does seem like they've been listening to customer feedback and I'm thrilled to see a more classic art direction...a million miles better than the waifs posing with bodies askew looking into the camera somewhat lustily or the impossible angles that didn't even focus on the clothing. This catalogue made me smile!! And wishlist like crazy.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


Anthropologie's had a clothing sale two weeks in a row...could we be lucky enough for three? With lots of new items rolling in (post tomorrow!) it seems to me that Anthro needs to make as much room as possible for the new stuff. So...sale? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and urge them on!

TODAY ONLY! Save 15% off your Anthropologie purchase for anthro day!!!



Sneaky, sneaky, Anthropologie!!! The day after launching a whole bunch of new arrivals (which we will cover in-depth on EA on Monday) Anthropologie has snuck in a surprise Anthro Day -- 15% off your Anthropologie.com order or valid for in-store purchases too. If you didn't receive this email you can use the code summerperk according to a tipster!! You can also join anthro here. (It's free.)

OF COURSE these days always sneak in on Saturdays...which is simultaneously a miracle and a bummer. Horribly inconvenient during the summer when most people are out and about or traveling. I'm not near any stores today but might be able to sneak in an online order before midnight. How about you? If I can, I'll update this post later with some picks. My top choice? The Astilbe Swing Dress ($475).
