{Weekly} EA Community Anthro reviews!


Welcome to the weekly EA community reviews post. This post was inspired by a similar J.Crew-themed community reviews post over at J.Crew Aficionada.

In this post, you can:
- Leave a comment with your Anthropologie product review
- Link to your reviews page on anthropologie.com
- Link to your own blog reviews
- Ask if there are any reviews for an item in the community
- Link to someone else's blog if they have reviewed an item someone is inquiring about (no links to copycats please)

For full guidelines, please read this post.

Metapost: Blogroll update time and a new weekly post!


It's been awhile since the last blogroll update here at EA. Many of you are kind enough to link over here from your blog and I'm delighted to return the favor. If your blog is not currently in my blogroll and you'd like to be added, please email me. Note that adding blogs is at my discretion. Preference is given to blogs about Anthropologie, fashion in general, and/or home design. Thank you as well to everyone who has added my tumblr to their blogroll, which is where my OOTDs will be living. I will be posting new updates over there next week.

On another note, the lovely Alexis over at J.Crew Aficionada continues to inspire me. There is a weekly post over there where JCAs can post their own quick product reviews, which is helpful in appending Alexis's reviews and stimulating discussion about fit, availability, etc. So I'll be starting a similar weekly reviews post over here a bit later today!

Here's how the post will work: you can either leave a comment with your Anthropologie product review, a link to your reviews page on anthropologie.com, or a link to your own blog reviews. You can also ask if there are any reviews for an item in the community. You are welcome to link to someone else's blog if they have reviewed an item someone is inquiring about. If you are linking to your own blog please make sure to list the items we can find in your link. Please condense links into as few comments as possible when possible. If you are reviewing via comment, include a product photo and tell us in a nutshell whether you like the item or not. What size did you try? Is that your normal size? How did the fabric feel? Have you worn it yet? If so, how did you style it? Have you washed the item yet? How did it hold up? Would you recommend the product? And finally, if you don't mind sharing what is your body shape? Include a link to the product as well.

Reviews of any Anthropologie items are welcome in the post -- clothing, accessories, beauty, home, whatever. I reserve the right to remove comments that I feel are spammy or against the intent of the post. There are also a couple of unfortunate blogs in the community that are nothing more than copies of already existing blogs. These bloggers know who they are as I've addressed them directly privately. There is room for as many original ideas as we can create, but there is no room in this community for copycats. Any links from or to those bloggers will be promptly deleted

This post will go live around 11 AM and will become a regularly weekly feature. I hope that it is helpful for the community!! I look forward to everyone's feedback.

Anthropologie's SALE won't wait til tomorrow!


Anthropologie's game of showing some sale prices and not others grows tiresome...but at least the fabulous EA community is here to broadcast the markdowns! Incomplete sale list below; I'm sure this list will grow in the morning but for now I'm back to bed. Some highlights include the Gathering Breeze Dress (now $130), style #21389614, the Strappy Dandelion Dress (now $70), style # 21097118 and the Leaf Filigree Tank (now $40, review here), style # 21014402. Fall's new arrivals have stolen away my attention, though some of these cuts are pretty tempting!

The community has shared 2nd/3rd/etc cuts in the comments here and on the Sale Guessing Game post. Confusingly, there are also a few items hanging out in the sale section that are full price, like the Map Of The World Skirt ($178). Keep checking -- my guess is they will be properly marked down later this morning.

As always, Happy Hunting! Accept no imitations.
