Eye Candy: Anthropologie March 2013 catalogue


Though the March 2013 Anthropologie catalogue itself isn't properly online yet, many photos have made Anthro's website in the New Arrivals section. I'm in love with the story this month's book seems to be telling -- a woman on the road visiting various vacation spots. My favorite shot is just after the jump. What do you think of these wonderful settings?

Note: this post was updated with information directly from Anthropologie at 4:30 PM ET. Please see the next photo inside the post for details.


{Weekly} EA Community Anthro reviews!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


With Free Shipping here on Anthropologie.com orders of $100+ (details here) a sale seems unlikely tomorrow. Especially after one last week. And yet -- perhaps a nice surprise is in store for us tomorrow! Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and hope for new cuts.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


Last week brought a nice Anthropologie sale to our doorsteps. The pattern lately hasn't yielded sales two weeks in a row but perhaps a change is here? Maybe more sale will come our way this week? Or additional cuts on items already marked down? We don't know what will happen tomorrow but let's play the Sale Guessing Game and try to figure it out!

Eye Candy: Store Inspiration

On the left dress form: Flocked Speckle Dress ($188, review), Viracocha Necklace (now $450).
On the right dress form: Battenburg Leather Jacket ($398), 
Bloomfall Peplum Tank ($78, review), Pilcro Stet Slim Straight ($118).  

This week in Eye Candy: Store Inspiration all of the windows are from Anthropologie's Rockefeller Center store in New York City. The store's visual team always comes up with some amazing ideas but they've truly outdone themselves with their Spring 2013 store window displays. I only wish these beautiful prints were captured on dresses or tops! Bravo and kudos to the artists who created these amazing canvases. It takes a lot to distract me from NYC's beautiful architecture but these windows captivated me. They are incredible.
