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: Reader Outfits will run on Monday or Tuesday. (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


Last week brought a round of fresh clothing cuts as well as further markdowns to Anthropologie's sale section. The question is what will tomorrow bring? More new cuts? (I hope.) Home markdowns? (Perhaps.) Nothing at all? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and try to figure it out!


Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits

Heather of The Peacock Fairy
Meadow Rue Wavery A-Line Skirt - Anthro
Apt. 9 Animal Sweater - Kohl's
Unlisted "Webpage" Wedges - Steinmart

The weekend rolls along and Reader Outfits is back for your Sunday diversion! I'm taking the week off from sharing a look (I've been running around looking at apartments all week, not exactly photo-worthy outfits). Luckily the community came through big time this week with plenty of delightful outfits! Please show them some love in the comments! And if you've been thinking about sharing an outfit please do! We'd love to see how you wear your Anthropologie.

On to the outfits...

International shopping lovers rejoice! Meet your USA shipping proxy Shipville


Whenever I get an email from a friend who lives outside of the USA, I can usually predict the contents before I even open it. How are you, how's New York, and oh by the way I really want to place an order from x retailer but they don't ship here so can I use your address?

My time as a shipping proxy may be coming to an end. If you live outside the USA and love Anthropologie, or really any American store, but hate the shipping fees, read on. This one's for you.

Reviews: Tamsin Blazer, Dotside Blazer, Cozy Knit Jacket, Diamond Stitch Pullover, Pilcro Stet Slim Ankle Needlepoint Jeans

A little variety on this afternoon's reviews set. Pants, blazers and sweaters.

By now you've hopefully read this morning's Anthropologie sweaters reviews set. Inside, a couple more sweaters, plus two blazers and a pair of cool pants.

Reviews: Top Dog Pullover, Gem Drop Peplum Top, Meriwether Cowlneck, Aida Cowlneck, Rainier Pullover, Geo Bloom Pullover

Searching for Anthropologie sweater reviews? Look no further ladies.
I've got the Gem Drop Peplum Top ($148) and more in this reviews set.

The crisp air of fall is beginning to descend on New York City which means it's finally chilly enough for me to start trying on Anthropologie sweaters comfortably! If your budget is in danger or if you're trying to avoid spending I recommend skipping this set -- everything I tried on was exceptionally cute.

Anthropologie's SALE is ever-growing!!!


Anthropologie's newest sale items include many summer holdouts, though there are some items that remain stubbornly full price.

Sunday, September 15, 2013

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


Home got its turn in Anthropologie's mysterious sale cycle last week. I wonder if clothing will be back on the docket tomorrow? Or will we get a no-sale week? Last year around this time Anthropologie ran a special one-day sale for anthro members. Will we see that again this year? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and speculate!

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits

Brianna of Three Orange Skirts
Anthro Clematis Pencil Skirt
MSSP sweater
Dansko Shoes 
Roberta Chiarella Never Never Land Collar

Reader Outfits are here! This week we've got plenty of pretty Anthropologie looks as the community shows off the ways we mix our Anthro with other brands. I'm in love with so many outfits this week! Take a look for yourself and then let us know which looks you love in the comments.

On to the outfits...

Off Topic: Free People wishlisting

How about a little rock n'roll with your boho?
Free People's We the Free X-Back Tee ($68) and the Litter Spine Body Chain ($218).


A bunch of you have asked me what's on my Free People wishlist at the moment. How about a little Saturday meandering with Anthropologie's sister brand?

Reviews: Beaded Composition Top and Citizens of Humanity Rocket High Rise Skinny Jeans

Wear it backwards or forwards, but you'll want to wear it always.

By community demand I'm running a quickie reviews set so you can see what the Beaded Composition Top ($198) looks like in real life!


Reviews: Chiaroscuro Shift, Tiered Arden Dress, Corby Shift, Modena Shift, Fabled Fields Shift, Elementary Jersey Dress

Wandering through the forest, I ran into a lost lady in a pretty dress.
I asked her where she got it, and then left to go try it on.

Pretty dress season never ends at Anthropologie. I think they're killing it right now with so many fantastic frocks that make me want to convert my bedroom into a giant walk-in closet. (Like the apartment I looked at yesterday, which just so happened to have a little side room that would be the perfect walk-in closet...)

Today's reviews set features some fine-looking dresses.


Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Reviews: Astral Swing Skirt, Piana Pencil Skirt, Rione Skirt, Cressida Skirt, Embroidered Fiore Pencil Skirt, Split Stripes Maxi Skirt, Neda Maxi Skirt

A cute leather skater skirt! The Astral Swing Skirt ($128), reviewed.

It's been awhile since I last reviewed skirts. It took me awhile to dig out of all that tulle! Let's take a look at what Anthropologie's got on the floor for our twirling pleasure.

Anthropologie's home section takes over new sale markdowns this week. A small set of markdowns appeared online this morning.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


Last week brought a sizeable clothing sale to Anthropologie, which leaves me wondering what this week has in store. More markdowns? A break? A home sale? What do you think? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and try to figure it all out!

Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits

Rebekah of The Mixed-Up Files
Dress: Anthropologie Skyward Dress
Cardigan: Target
Shoes: C-Label

This week it's a small but wonderful edition of Reader Outfits! Each week some cool community members show off how we wear our Anthropologie. Nothing like a little Sunday morning inspiration! If you'd like to join the party next week all you have to do is email me your photo. Take a scroll through this week's looks and then show these ladies some love in the comments.

Free Shipping is not back at Anthropologie...but you might have it anyway (part two)


Back in June Anthropologie offered various Free Shipping, flat rate shipping and so on promotions for people visiting its website. Those tests are back and the community is reporting that some of us are seeing Free Shipping! But not everyone...
