Spotted for less: sandals, swimsuits and espadrilles

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Every so often fabulous community members email me about Anthropologie items they've found for less somewhere else. Much as I am a store loyalist I love a good deal! This post rounds up some of the recent finds; please add a comment if you know of something else.

The outfit above features a beautiful pair of Chie Mihara sandals. Anthropologie called them the Hoisted T-Straps ($380) but they're sold out. And even when they were available $380 is a hard pill to swallow.

This week is Lord & Taylor's Friends & Family event. They're one of EA's newest affiliates and what a warm welcome this F&F event has been! They carry those same Chie Mihara t-straps ($375) and after discounts you'll save over $100 on them! (Use promo code FRIENDS at checkout.) Still not cheap by any means but much less than the full asking price.

Seafolly's Natalie One-Piece ($148) has a classic glam vibe that is just dying to go to Mexico with me. Many thanks to Jamie, who let me know that this same suit is available here for $134. With free ground shipping on USA orders, that brings the total savings to almost $30. Not bad! Thanks Jamie for the link.

This last item comes to us from Sharon, who asks, "Hey roxy, have Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie ever sold the same item before?" Yes, though not commonly. If you buy the Enduring Espadrilles ($96) you're getting pretty shoes to be sure. But why not pay pay $8 less, include it in a free shipping order, and use ebates when buying the same shoes from Urban Outfitters?? I don't know why not either. Silly Anthropologie!

Have you spotted any Anthropologie items for less somewhere else recently?
