Playing the {Tag Sale} Guessing Game


What will happen tomorrow in the mysterious realm that is Anthropologie's Tag Sale? If last Monday and the Monday before are any indication, nothing. Markdowns might come on Wednesday as they have the past two weeks or not at all. And what of the much hoped-for and hinted at extra % off sale? All I can say for sure is that it's not here yet and I have no clue if tomorrow will be the day.

What do you think will happen tomorrow? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and hypothesize!

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits

Alice
Basket Weave Tee -- Anthropologie
Jeans -- Dillards
Sweater -- Urban Outfitters
Shoes -- Clarks
Purse -- vintage Dooney & Bourke

It's the weekend before the longest weekend of the year in the USA (that'd be the conveniently Thursday-placed July 4th Independence Holiday -- yay!!). So it's no wonder that this week's Reader Outfits are a festive collection of vacation shots and summery looks. I love seeing how the community styles their Anthropologie and I'm so grateful to everyone who sends in their looks each week! Won't you show them some appreciation too in the comments?

Let's get on the outfits...

First dibs! Anthro members get a sneak peek at July's new Anthropologie arrivals


Instead of the extra % off sale I was hoping for, Anthropologie instead sent an email to anthro members today for first dibs on some of the July 2013 collection. Yay? Inside, a peek at some of the new arrivals and a bit of moping.


{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.

Playing the {Tag Sale} Guessing Game


Better late than never, last Wednesday the Tag Sale began at Anthropologie! That throws the markdown schedule off somewhat. Though I was excited to see the new cuts there are still so many things I was hoping to see go on sale or go further on sale. Will Anthropologie give us a cookie tomorrow? Perhaps Free Shipping, or further cuts, or something to kick this sale in to high gear? Let's play the Tag Sale Guessing Game and find out!

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits

Leifsdottir Bruna Dress
J Crew coral bits necklace

Hello Sunday! It's been too long but after a few weeks' break so I could take a break, Reader Outfits is back! Thank you to everyone who continued to send in looks while I was in Hawaii. I hope I've captured everyone -- if you do not see your look and did not get a reply email from me please email me to let me know! I didn't intentionally omit anyone.

This week we've got a fantastic mix of the outdoor, the indoor and the wanting more. It's always so great to see how our community styles its Anthropologie. Without further ado, on to the outfits...

Anthropologie's Tag Sale brings tons of new SALE items!


It's the sale I both hoped for and feared! Anthropologie's Spring 2013 Tag Sale kicks off with tons of new markdowns detailed inside. The fresh cuts are so sizable that I'm splitting this post into two posts -- inside this one you'll find clothing cuts. I'll be making a second post for shoesbags, accessories and 2nd/3rd/etc cuts.


Anthropologie's Tag Sale is so big, it gets two posts!


This post features all the new Tag Sale shoe markdowns and will be updated later this morning with 2nd/3rd/etc cuts. Looking for today's new clothing markdowns? Click here to go to that sale post.

Aloha from Maui! Anthropologie's playing around with a few new sale markdowns today. They've put is a few dresses on sale, now priced below $100!

Guest post by Ashley: Anthropologie on TV -- Pretty Little Liars!


Hey Effortless Anthropolgie readers! I'm Ashley over at Spotted on TV and I'm back today with a piece about Pretty Little Liars.  Pretty Little Liars returned for season four earlier this week, and in honor of its latest season's debut I thought I would share my favorite Anthropologie pieces that the "liars" wore in season three.

Reviews: Pieced Lace Top, Ring True Shell, Sprigstitch Top, Pilcro Hyphen Relaxed Jeans, Terra Ikat Blouse, Phenomena Embroidered Tank, Tiled Swing Tank

The Pilcro Hyphen Relaxed Jeans ($118), too tempting to pass up.

Note: I'm in Hawaii at the moment and am not reading emails regularly. If you sent me a message I'll get back to you next week!

This is actually a tops review set with one detour into jeans. I love everything I tried on in this post though not everything worked on me. Way to blow the budget, Anthropologie!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


A clothing sale last week means we're due for either no sale or home markdowns. But I wouldn't mind some more fresh clothing cuts! I'm thinking a shoe sale would be great or maybe some accessories markdowns? Clothing is always welcome too.

No Tag Sale this week. (What's the Tag Sale? Find out here.) What will happen in the morning? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!

Reviews: Threaded Tides Dress, Laced Lemondrop Dress, Garden Party Halter Dress, Gathered Sonata Dress, Empire Day Dress, Poppy Stripe Dress

When the model wears a blazer, I'm instantly dubious about the fit.
The Laced Lemondrop Dress ($168) and five other frocks, reviewed.

My girlfriends and I have been saying one thing about Anthropologie more and more lately: they seem to be ignoring larger busts. That will be a common complaint in this reviews set which features beautiful dresses that are challenging for those of us rocking anything above a B.

Free Shipping is not back at Anthropologie...but you might have it anyway


Oh the games marketers play. Over the past several days many a community member has excitedly emailed, commented or posted that Free Shipping is back on Anthropologie's website. It's not, but here's why you might have Free Shipping anyway...


Reviews: Minerve Swing Dress, Coral Wave Shift, Reva Elephant Tunic, Cilla Tweed Shift, Mangala Pencil Dress, Sunglow Stripes Dress

The very definition of cute sundress? In this set, reviews of the Sunglow Dress ($268) and more.

Anthropologie dress season is in full swing and I'm doing my best to try on and review as many as I can! Six more get the review treatment in this post.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


There was no sale last week and now that it's June everyone's wondering about the tardy Tag Sale. (The Tag Sale is not coming tomorrow.) But before that can begin will we get June started with a clothing markdown? I hope so! It's time to play the Sale Guessing Game and speculate.
