The weekend in-store community post

Friday, May 31, 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.

Reviews: Sequined Kaleidoscope Dress, Orissa Menagerie Dress, Batik Gardenia Dress, Embroidered Colorblock Dress, Embroidered Colorblock Dress, Sikuli Diamond Dress, Annas Maxi Dress

Thursday, May 30, 2013

The Sikuli Diamond Dress ($168) paired with a bunch of the Bijouterie Layering Necklaces.


Note: Anthropologie is running a limited-time promotion with some tops priced $35 and under!


Online exclusive might translate to also available at the Upper East Side Anthropologie in NYC, as I found a few "online-only" Anthropologie items there on a recent trip. It's an incentive to visit this faraway land that used to be my home more often; if only the 6 train wasn't such misery to ride. While uptown I found several cute dresses to try and review. Inside, photos and thoughts.


Reviews: Vertical Garden Pencil Skirt, Spearmint Stripe Skirt, Adela Beaded Skirt, Dayflora Stitched Skirt, Southwark Peplum Skirt, Aglitz Brocade Shorts, Sunburst Eyelet Shorts

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Anthropologie's ready for summer with lots of cute skirts and work shorts.
In this set reviews of the Dayflora Stitched Skirt ($148) and more.

Tops and jacket reviews are on the way, plus plenty more dresses. But before we get there let's see how some of Anthropologie's bottoms fare.

Perk Alert! First dibs for anthro members on new June goodies, plus some pretty new Anthropologie arrivals

Friday, May 24, 2013

The Ombre Horizon Dress ($178), Daisy Chain Belt ($48), ??? sandals.

Note: Reader Outfits will return next week! There will be no Sale Guessing Game on Sunday. The Trade Market will run on Monday unless there is a surprise sale on Monday. 

Anthropologie's slamming us with goodies before the long USA Memorial Day weekend. I'm thankful all this stuff is coming today before I leave for Cape Cod. Is it a bit overwhelming? Yes! But in the best way possible.

In addition to launching a Free Shipping promotion (details here) through Monday anthro members are also getting a first access email to new June arrivals. So. Much. Eye Candy!! Let's take a look at what the pre-shop page has plus some other pretties that have me drooling...


Free Shipping is back at Anthropologie for Memorial Day weekend!


Anthropologie's got a Memorial Day weekend perk for us -- Free Shipping on orders of $150+. Use the code LONGWEEKEND at checkout. This promotions runs from now til Monday, May 27 at 11:59 ET.

While Free Shipping is always appreciated, I was hoping for something more, so much more! It seems like practically everyone's doing some kind of sale this weekend. J.Crew's got their tiered discount deal. Bloomingdales is doing its Brown Bag sale. Saks has its designer sale preview.

In Anthro's defense, I've made quite a few purchases there already this month so it was going to take a larger incentive for me to take another look. Instead I'll just enjoy the weekend off. There are a few online exclusive items I'm interested in but I'll wait. Will this perk entice you to place an order?

Reviews: Rose Bramble Sundress, Passionflower High-Low Dress, Cherry-Drop Sheath, Yvette Lace Dres, Lonoke Lace Dress, Sonja Lasercut Dress

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Dresses take another spin through the reviews whirl. 
In this set, the Cherry-Drop Sheath ($148) and more.

I have plenty of dresses left in the review hopper. Let's take a look at some more of Anthropologie's latest frocks!

Reviews: Eyelet Peplum Blouse, Coralline Peplum Top, Pattern Pop Tee, Patched Rugby Pullover, Fieldbloom Peasant Blouse, Embroidered Sathya Top, Embroidered Prema Tank

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Destination vacation has me thinking about summer tops.
Dolce Vita's Eyelet Peplum Blouse ($148) and more get the review treatment in this set.

As I continue culling my closet down to the things that still fit and the things I'm still not quite ready to part with, a plentiful amount of empty hangers are now available. Summer tops seem to be lacking right now so I went to Anthropologie to see what's new. I liked more than a few of the options! The price points are creeping upwards though.

My thoughts on some of the latest inside.


Reviews: Aniko Lace Dress, Akela Swing Dress, Graced Swing Dress, Rosebloom Burnout Dress, Forget-Me-Not Dress, Janie Jersey Dress

Is it any wonder that this classic Anthro beauty sold out online so quickly?
In this reviews set, the Graced Swing Dress ($188) and more.

I'm dusting off the ol' reviews tag and getting back into the swing of things with the first 6 of more than 20 dress reviews to come. (Tops, skirts, shorts and jackets will all get their turn too over the next month.) Anthropologie has been listening to customer feedback and the latest arrivals are a wonderful mix of Anthropologie familiar and new. What's good and what's not inside.

Anthropologie's SALE is back in a big way!

Monday, May 20, 2013


It's a perfect-sized Anthropologie sale this morning, with a generous markdown set that doesn't tip into overload. Many clothing categories saw cuts today! Shoes too. Inside, the list of what's new to sale today...

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, May 19, 2013


Home took a turn on the Anthropologie sale carousel last week. This week? A sale doesn't seem to be in the cards and yet I hope for a happy surprise in the morning! How about an accessories sale? Or 2nd/3rd/etc cuts? I'd be delighted by fresh markdowns too! Let's throw some guesses at the wall and see what sticks in this week's Sale Guessing Game.

Update: There will be a sale tomorrow! Inside, what might get marked down...

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits

Splendid Tee Maxi Dress
Anthropologie Schuler and Sons Merged Flatform Sandal
Anthropologie Sparked Agate Necklace

It's a rainy Sunday here in NYC but you'll never find Reader Oufits postponed by the weather! (The Yankees game I'm supposed to be attending today? Not so sure.) It's a small but fantastic set of looks this week featuring pants, maxis and a mix of Anthro recent and past. I'm delighted by all of this week's contributions! Please show your love for these fabulous ladies in the comments.

On to the outfits...

Who makes their Made in Kind for Anthropologie debut tomorrow?

Thursday, May 16, 2013


Anthropologie's Made in Kind capsule page is due for an update tomorrow! Though most of the newest designs are being kept under wraps, one designer collaboration has been in the spotlight for the last week or so...


The EA review wishlist

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

I'm kind of obsessed with this dress. 
My workwear today, the Petaluma Peep Hem Dress ($78, reviewed).


Work has kept me underwater for the last few weeks and I haven't been to an Anthropologie store in what seems like ages! My first in-depth sweep of the website in awhile has yielded a ton of wishlist additions and a long list of items to look for and review.

I'll start by sharing the items I'm most intrigued by. Then won't you let me know what you'd like to see reviewed in the comments?

The best of what's on sale :: fresh Anthropologie home markdowns

Monday, May 13, 2013



There are no new clothing markdowns today. Instead, all the fresh cuts are in the homewares section! I picked out some of the highlights after the jump.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, May 12, 2013


A sale was finally in the cards last week...yet most of my shopping cart and wishlist remain stubbornly full price. So I can only hope for more sale tomorrow! It seems unlikely but you never know. Maybe 2nd/3rd/etc cuts at the very least? And so we play the Sale Guessing Game...

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits

Alessandra
Mayura Beaded IPad Case - Anthropologie
Warp & Weft knee boots - Anthropologie
Lasercut shirtdress - Anthropologie
Sunglasses - Gucci

Happy Mother's Day everyone! The biggest brunch day of the year is here in NYC and I will be taking part. But don't go off to your family events without scrolling through this week's beautiful outfits. Thanks as always to all of our contributors!

On to the outfits...


Saturday yay!! Anthro members get 15% off their purchases!

Saturday, May 11, 2013


Well this is new! A Mother's Day weekend treat is here for anthro members -- 15% off your full-priced Anthropologie item online order or in-store purchase. This promotion is being delivered via email to anthro members and includes a one-time use code in the email. This code is valid today only!

I'm excited to see this promotion as I have a bunch of items in my cart, so even with the shipping charge the 15% off is a good deal. However the timing of this promotion isn't great for me. I pay my bills at the beginning of the month with my discretionary income available in the second half. I'm not eager to spend money until I have it so I'm torn here. I wish this one-time use code was valid for at least a week or maybe the whole month?

If you're not going to use your code feel free to share it in the comments! Anthropologie suggests checking out the newest arrivals for temptations. Will you take advantage of this offer?

Open Thread: Bought and Liked

Thursday, May 9, 2013

1 - DSW; 2 - Anthropologie; 3 - Rebecca Taylor via Nordstrom; 4 - Gap

With things a little slow in Anthroland at the moment, I thought it would be fun to pull back a little to a wider view. One of my resolutions this year was to be more discerning in my spending and so far the goal is going well. I've missed out on some items I've wanted but I've also been happier with the things I have purchased because I made myself work harder wait longer for them.

I love getting recommendations from my friends about items they've bought and loved. So I thought it would be fun to do something like that here! Inside, the purchases I've made and liked from the last few months and then I hope you'll share some of yours in the comments.

April showers bring May Anthropologie SALE markdowns!

Monday, May 6, 2013


When it rains, it pours! It's been awhile since Anthropologie's had a proper set of new sale markdowns. That means there are plenty of new cuts to enjoy after the jump, even if nothing in my cart hit sale this time around.

Thank you again to our inside tipsters who gave us advance notice of this sale!!!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, May 5, 2013


A clothing sale is on the way tomorrow according to a few well-placed sources. I'm hoping for dresses, tops and shoes! Some second cuts would be great too. What will happen in the morning? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game to find out!

Metapost: Important Announcements about the EA Trade Market Facebook Group

Thursday, May 2, 2013


EA's Facebook Trade Market Group is nearly a year old and almost 1,700 members strong! I'm delighted to foster a home for so many Anthropologie fans to come together to buy, sell, and trade their items. If you're not a member and would like to join, you can request membership here.

Due to the somewhat piecemeal nature of the group's wall, I thought it would be better to make some administrative announcements here on the blog rather than in the group. What announcements? Read on for more...
