Eye Candy: Cambridge Anthropologie Spring 2013 Fashion Show

Tuesday, April 30, 2013


It's time for another look at real Anthropologie customers modeling the clothes we love! Last month EA community member Joanna attended the Cambridge, Mass. Anthropologie's Spring Fashion show and was kind enough to send along tons of photos.

Let's enjoy some real life Eye Candy!


Eye Candy: Anthropologie Summer 2013 catalogue

Monday, April 29, 2013



Although the catalogue itself is not available on the US Anthropologie website, a version of it appeared on the EU site over the weekend (thanks Elle!!) and several preview shots made the US site this morning. From the looks of it the USA version will have more photos and products whenever it does appear. For now, let's take a look at some of the lovely beachside photos and wistfully wish we were there too.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, April 28, 2013


The 20% off bottoms promotion ends tonight, clearing the way for a possible sale tomorrow! May is usually Tag Sale month but I'm hoping April has one more good markdown set left in it. What will happen in the morning? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game to find out!

No Sunday would be complete without Reader Outfits! Here they are once again with so much pretty this week that I almost can't take it. I'm so impressed by our talented community! Please show these lovely ladies some love in the comments, after you take a look at this week's photos of course.

On to the outfits...

The weekend in-store community post

Friday, April 26, 2013


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: 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.

Sale's on! Take 20% off full-priced Anthropologie shorts, pants, denim & skirts!

Thursday, April 25, 2013


With no sale earlier this week Anthropologie must have known we were missing out. So today they've launched a new sale promotion on bottoms! Details inside...

Anthropologie's not having a sale today but I am

Wednesday, April 24, 2013


My great closet cleanout continues, with another round of goodies up for grabs. All of these items are either in new or like new condition unless otherwise noted. Help me feed the contest fund and my travel fund and I'll help you build your own wonderful closet! Interested in purchasing one of my items for sale? Email me. I mail out twice a week.

Reviews: Lace Penumbra Blouse, Lace Yoke Tee, Venn Peplum Blouse, Scrolling Lace Peplum Blouse, Holding Horses Chambray Romper, Drafted Petals Romper

One of my high school senior pictures is disturbingly similar to this. 
Except of course I'm not wearing the Venn Peplum Blouse ($88) in mine.

It's time to take a critical look at some more Anthropologie items. We'll start with tops and wrap with rompers.

Checking out the latest new arrivals at Anthropologie

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

The Roseblue Burnout Dress ($158), one of the new Anthropologie arrivals I love.

With sale sadly off the table this week, things are kind of slow-going on Anthropologie's radar. Since the May catalogue will likely omit some of the most tempting new items let's take a look at the latest Anthro goods that are now on my wishlist.

Spolier alert: the Market Day Striped Maxi ($88) looks totally different on me.

Thank you to everyone for your feedback on which dress to invest in from this morning's reviews set! Your honest opinions are very helpful and it's so wonderful having a great group of people here to sift through the options. Feel free to use the comments anytime to do the same for yourself!

Monday, April 8, 2013


This week Anthropologie's having a sale focused on home goods. See what got marked down after the jump!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, April 7, 2013


We came, we saw, and after a day's delay we saled last week.  What does that mean for tomorrow morning? Considering my cart is no less full of full-priced items than it was this time last week, I'm hoping it means we sale again tomorrow! Will we? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits!

Dress: Anthropologie
Jacket: American Eagle (old)
Sandals: Aldo (old)
Purse: Chloe

Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to this week's edition of Reader Outfits. Our community has donned its Sunday best for these looks. Please show them some love in the comments!! If you'd like to submit an outfit it's easy. Just read through the guidelines and then email your look in.

On to the outfits...

Free Shipping is back at Anthropologie for the weekend!


In what's become Anthropologie's routine, Free Shipping is back for the weekend! This time the threshold is $150 instead of $100. Use the code WKND150 at checkout. This offer goes from now until Sunday at 11:59 PM ET. So there could still be a sale next week!

Will you take advantage of this free shipping offer? I'm tempted.

Reviews: Fontes Blouse, Time Lapse Tee, Pattern Gather Shell, Dots & Dahlias Chambray Buttondown, Novelty Collar Tee

Thursday, April 4, 2013

Anthropologie knows my weakness for embellished necklines. The Pattern Gather Shell ($68), reviewed.

It was sweaters this morning and now for some light afternoon reading featuring top reviews! I promise there's no belly-baring in this set.

Reviews: Road Game Cardigan, Pointelle Perk Cardigan, Firebloom Cardigan, Pan-Pearl Cardi

Truth: I chose this photo of the Firebloom Cardigan ($128) 
so I wouldn't be the only one baring belly in this post.

Retailers may be trying to sell us on spring and summer but it's so cold all I can think of is sweaters. How do some of Anthro's latest options fare?


Reviews: Tiled Mosaic Shorts, La Festa Pencil Skirt, Holding Horses Denim Pencil Skirt, Burnout Lace Pencil Skirt, Lace Fable Pencil Skirt, Paisley Pencil Skirt

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

Finally, skirts that hit at the knee or below. The Lace Fable Pencil Skirt ($148), reviewed.

While I wonder if it will ever be warm enough to wear skirts sans tights again, let's take a whirl through some of Anthropologie's latest bottom options.

Anthropologie's SALE surprises us all!

Tuesday, April 2, 2013


Anthropologie is in fact having a sale this morning but as a nice little bookend to April Fools' Day the prices didn't show up online overnight. After the jump, sale post in progress! This week things are a little out of order and crazy though, you'll have to forgive the lack of nice little lists.


Playing the Sale Guessing Game {again}!

Monday, April 1, 2013


Fine, Anthropologie. We can wait an extra day for sale -- especially if the markdown set reportedly coming tomorrow is big. I have 8 items in my cart and I'll happily pull the trigger with some sale help. Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and speculate about fresh cuts, 2nd/3rd/etc cuts and whether it'll be clothing, home or some other mysterious sale tomorrow.
