Playing the Sale Guessing Game


Tomorrow is the last day of 2012 and something tells me Anthropologie will not be giving us any new markdowns til the clock has struck 2013. But I've certainly been wrong before! Perhaps we'll see 2nd/3rd/etc cuts finally? Or maybe a larger % off sale? Your guess is as good as mine. Last week saw many of the holiday dresses go on sale as well as a few long-awaited stragglers. What will this week bring? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits!

Dress: Anthropologie
Slip: A Slip Shop
Tights: Target
Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: Seychelles
Jacket: Tulle from Nordstrom Rack

Happy weekend! I hope all that celebrate had a lovely Christmas and wishing everyone Season's Greetings. It's a shorter version of Reader Outfits this week but still plenty of lovely looks to take in! I'm excited to see some NYE looks next week!! If you'd like to submit a look for Reader Outfits please read through the guidelines and then snap away!

Just a quick thanks to everyone who included me on their Christmas card list!! I was flattered to receive email versions from a bunch of community members. It's so lovely to see your families' smiling faces and I hope to someday send out my own family card.

On to the outfits...

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



Note: Today is possibly the last day to get 30% off Anthropologie's sale items! Details in this postEye Candy will run tomorrow, Reader Outfits will run on Sunday! (To send your Reader Outfit in, simply email me.)

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 -- the Weekend in-store community post will run later this afternoon.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


It's the day before the day before Christmas. This weekend hasn't seen any special promotions from Anthropologie and I have to wonder if they'll wait until Dec. 25th or 26th before making any more cuts. Last week saw a small group of cuts focusing on shoes. What will this week bring? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits!

Meagan
Tights: Some black tights
Shoes: Classic Tall Ugg boots

It's a holly jolly time of year and this week's Reader Outfits have caught the holiday spirit!! Plenty of pretty festive looks lie within this week's post, sure to put a smile on even the Grinch's face. Thanks to all of our contributors -- please show your love in the comments.  If you'd like to submit a look for Reader Outfits please read through the guidelines and then snap away!

Win a vintage locket from Bellflower Bay Antique & Vintage Jewelry!


Who's ready for a giveaway? Effortless Anthropologie and Bellflower Bay Antique & Vintage Jewelry have teamed up to give one lucky community member a gorgeous piece of vintage jewelry!

Artist Interview: Meet Jenn & Joyce of Bellflower Bay Jewelry!


Let's take a break from the crazy Christmas shopping season! It's always a pleasure to team up with independent artists and showcase their work for the community. Jenn and Joyce of Bellflower Bay Antique & Vintage Jewelry are a mother-daughter team based out of metro area NYC who hunt down and sell beautiful vintage and antique jewelry pieces. Their finds are beautiful and fit right in with my love for exquisite baubles and statement pieces. Later on today EA will host a giveaway with Bellflower Bay. But first, get to know Jenn & Joyce and learn about their Etsy store in this artist interview!

A tiny set of Anthropologie markdowns appears this morning!


Some new sale goodies appeared this morning. It's a short list but there's a hint of what might be coming this weeekend! What the community sees after the jump...

2012 Gift Guide: Light and bright


Candles and votives are easy to pack and easy to give! They're one of my favorite winter hostess gifts. I've picked out a bunch of my favorites for today's mini gift guide.

Email: Last day of FREE SHIPPING for anthro members, plus Anthropologie's 25 best gifts


Perks for anthro members continue to flow in! Hopefully every anthro member in the community has received their one-time use Free Shipping code for Anthropologie's website. If not you should email the anthro team to request your code. Although this code is advertised as having no minimum you need a full-priced item in your cart for the code to work.

In addition to the one-time use Free Shipping code for anthro members, Anthropologie is also giving us a list of their 25 favorite gifts. I've got a few more to add!

These are a few of my favorite charms!


As a kid I used to love charm anything. Charm bracelets. Charm necklaces. Lucky Charms. Even now as an adult I love the idea of connecting seemingly unrelated items in a way that may make sense only to me. It's why I've been so delighted by the Charm items Anthropologie is carrying! And for today only they're all 30% off on Anthropologie's website.

It's a sparkly holiday season with Swarovski Elements, plus a contest!

See the full Swarovski Elements calendar on their Facebook page!

I love a little sparkle to go with my holidays! Today on EA we'll be focusing on jewelry, charms, and sparkly gifts. Swarovski Elements wants to connect with the Effortless Anthropologie community to unveil its sparkling advent calendar.

Reviews: Winter Waves Cardigan, Marna Fairisle Cardigan, Webbed Tales Boatneck, Skien Coat

The Skien Coat ($288) gets reviewed, plus three sweaters.

Winter is coming and sweaters have my full attention. Three in this set plus one coat just for kicks.

Reviews: Pintucked Arpeggio Skirt, Wood Grain Pencil Skirt, Brocade Shimmer Skirt, Josephine Smocked Top

A few pencil skirts today with a top that snuck in, including the Pintucked Arpeggio Skirt ($98).

After a few seasons of really mini miniskirts and calf-grazing tablecloths I'm somewhat over skirts. And so of course now Anthropologie is releasing tons of cute options and dragging me right back into the knee-baring love. Let's see how a few of the newest options fared under the review microscope.
