Perk alert! First dibs on Anthropologie's March 2015 voyage to India


Anthropologie has emailed anthro members a link to pre-shop its upcoming March 2015 arrivals, featuring India-inspired colors and prints and designs. I'm on the road at this moment but my first thought upon looking at the page was pretty! Also -- still no structure to be found (grumble, grumble).

At a quick glance my favorites would be the Sweetheart Roses Dress ($325) and the Cherry Blossom Gown ($698) -- the latter of which I can guarantee is a special order that will sell through quickly even at that price point.

I'll have the March catalogue preview up in the next few days as well. Did you find anything exciting to buy, wishlist or like on the first dibs page?

Investigating Anthropologie's Newest Arrivals and What's Topping My Wishlist

Flamingo Cropped Leggings ($56). Need I say more?

Lots to love and lots to despair over in Anthropologie's spring releases we've seen so far. I suppose it's good that I don't love everything because my wallet and my closet couldn't possibly handle it. So inside a look at a ton of dresses I'm curious about, why so few of Anthro's tops are working for me right now (and examples of what I'd like to see instead) plus shoe porn.

Ready, set, wishlist!

The weekend in-store community post


I have noticed a lot of community members sharing in-store deals and spots in the comments of various posts. Inspired by the weekly Seek & Find posts started by the lovely Alexis over at J.Crew Aficionada, I think now is a good time to start a similar weekly post here.

{Weekly} Popbacks Open Thread



By request of the community comes this weekly post. Please use this post to list website popbacks that you see on your wishlist, via search engines, or in your shopping cart. Popbacks go very quickly but hopefully by having them in one place will be helpful. Please do not use this post for store sightings.

Checking in with my overflowing Free People wishlist and shopping cart

Drooling over Free People's Crosstown Patterns Tunic ($128), among many many other things.

Note: Anthropologie's sale has gone an extra 25% off! Keep up with the discussion here.


Free People, you've done it again. Between your amazing FP Me community that shows how customers style your items (and give me plenty of ideas and inspiration) and your sometimes crazy but mostly appealing product shots, my wishlist is of course exploding as my cart is overflowing.

Though I am a winter baby who loves wearing layers I like to wait to place my Free People birthday order until their spring stuff comes out -- when I see plenty of temptation via the upcoming warmer weather. I know it's hard to imagine now for some parts of the USA (sorry, New England) it will be warm again at some point and inside is a lot of what I'll probably be wearing.

Clothing, baubles and some killer shoes await inside...
