Take an extra 20% off all Anthropologie sale items this weekend!! {Open Thread}

Saturday, November 30, 2013


Note: There will not be Reader Outfits this week, but it will return the week after! Feel free to send me your look now.

Anthropologie's holiday weekend promotions continue! Although Anthro's website is no longer 20% off sitewide, they are now offering an extra 20% off all sale items through Monday December 2 at 2:59 AM ET. This promotion is valid online and in stores.

In addition, Anthropologie also sent out a first dibs email to anthro members for its annual gift guide. You can flip through the entire gift guide here or see a selection of the gift guide items here. I'm really loving the Moonflower Sweater Jacket ($178) for its classic Anthropologie appeal and the Hearth Hoodie ($168) likewise looks warm and appealing.

For people wondering what Monday may bring I know what the promotion is and this extra 20% off promotion is better. If you're waiting to pull the trigger on Anthropologie items now is the time if you want to have them in time for Christmas in my opinion. While mid-to-late December may bring other promos there's no guarantee, and it seems as though Anthro did very well yesterday on Black Friday which may lead them to be stingy with offers this month.

Feel free to use this post as the Weekend In-Store Community post too -- what are you hunting for, questions, store reports, etc.

Metapost: Gobble gobble and Happy Hanukkah!!!

Thursday, November 28, 2013


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It's one of my favorite holidays because of the simple themes of togetherness, sharing, abundance and of course gorging ourselves while grown men smack into each other on TV. In just under an hour Central Park West, Central Park South and 6th Ave will become home to floats, balloons and in-sync marching bands for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. We'll be watching this one on TV but looking for a few friends in the crowd.



Happy Hanukkah to everyone as well!! This is also one of my favorite holidays because it's a celebratory holiday, unlike many of the more serious tones the Jewish holidays tend to take. Hanukkah started last night at sundown and runs for the next 8 days. I made some sweet potato latkes last night (some zucchini parmesan ones too) and can't wait to share them at my Thanksgiving feast today!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and a Happy Hanukkah! How will you be celebrating today?

Anthropologie's Sale is FINALLY here!!!

Wednesday, November 27, 2013


Anthropologie's pre-holiday sale is here and the news is good, especially if you were waiting for jeans, shoes or accessories to go on sale! Inside, the goodies that got marked down this morning.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game {again!!} + Some early Black Friday sales

Tuesday, November 26, 2013


Anthropologie sale is confirmed to launch tomorrow (Wednesday 11/27/2013). If it's anything like the typical Thanksgiving week sale at Anthro we can expect tons of markdowns come tomorrow in apparel, accessories and home. What does this mean for Black Friday? Nothing. There's nothing to talk about Black Friday-wise yet because the home office hasn't released its plans.

So, what can we expect to see on sale tomorrow? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, November 24, 2013


Note: If you haven't sent in your Reader Outfit yet, there's still time! This week's post will run on Tuesday, email me your look!

Typically Anthropologie has a sizable sale the week of Thanksgiving, which is then further discounted on either Black Friday or Cyber Monday. I expect new markdowns to come tomorrow but I'm getting mixed messages from my tipsters. Some of these wonderful peeps say yes sale tomorrow (Monday) but some of these wonderful peeps say sale may come as late as Wednesday this week. Since Free Shipping ends at 3 AM ET it seems like something is coming.

This confusion is pretty typical of Anthropologie round this time of year. There's nothing to talk about Black Friday-wise yet because the home office hasn't released its plans. Anything you're reading that says otherwise could very well end up being accurate, but it's not official info as of yet.

As for tomorrow, I'm thinking sale but as always this is not guaranteed. Maybe it will be a promotion instead. What do you think will happen tomorrow? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!

The weekend in-store community post

Friday, November 22, 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.

Win a gorgeous custom pet portrait by Dafonte Art!!!

Thursday, November 21, 2013

I dare you to resist even the painted patented Shiba stare.
Enter to win a custom pet portrait by dafonteart.

Do you love your dog as much as I love mine? Want the perfect gift for a dog lover, or perhaps just a way to forever capture your dog in art form? EA has teamed up with dafonteart to launch one sweet giveaway for animal lovers!


Right on schedule, FREE SHIPPING IS BACK at Anthropologie!!


Right on schedule, Anthropologie has launched a FREE SHIPPING promotion the weekend prior to Thanksgiving week! This bodes well not only for a sale on Monday but also for a wonderful Black Friday promotion next week.

Get Free Shipping on your Anthropologie.com orders of $150+ using the code HOMEWARD now through Monday, November 25 2013 at 3 AM ET. You must have a full-priced item in your cart to receive free shipping when you use this code. The code works in both the USA and Canada. Get the full details on Anthropologie's site here.

Will you take advantage of this? I have my eye on a few gifts and it would be a relief to place them now before the Black Friday and holiday shopping madness begin. Or maybe I'll use it on something from yesterday evening's holiday catalogue eye candy post.

Inside, a few of the gift ideas I'm considering...

Eye Candy: Anthropologie Holiday 2013 catalogue

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Vie En Rose Scarf ($68), Kittiwake Pullover ($148), Level 99 Liza Faux Suede Jeans ($128), 
Cabled Leg Warmers ($38), Seacoast Booties ($248), Big Apple Weekender ($198).
I spy a pretty awesome Anthropologie catalogue!

So...you might not want to click into this post. I'm just warning you, because Anthropologie's 2013 Holiday Lookbook is filled with tons of Eye Candy. I have no idea how most of these items look in real life as of now. But the photos themselves? Droolworthy wishlist stuffing. And it just so happens to feature one of my all-time favorite models, Anouck Lepère.

Much more Eye Candy inside.

All will be revealed after the jump...

Off the beaten path: Loving these shoes & boots

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Shoes...I might have a few pairs.

No matter how I feel or look or whatever one thing is certain: none of my outfits are complete without a rocking pair of shoes or boots! I thought it would be fun to have an open discussion post about what shoes we have in our closets that we love, purchases that didn't work out and what we're wishlisting right now. There are so many great shoe promotions going on right now it seems like the ideal time to discuss!

Inside, a bunch of shoes I've purchased recently; what I'm wishlisting and some advice needed!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, November 17, 2013



Last Monday brought a home sale to Anthropologie's Fresh Cuts section. But the more interesting story is from Friday, when Anthropologie launched a weekend promotion for 20% off party shoes, put a whole bunch of dresses on sale and made all sale dresses 20% off (prices as marked, post here)! The newest dress markdowns are mostly temporary, so what will tomorrow bring?

Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out...

Weekend surprise: 20% off Anthropologie party shoes and sale dresses!!!

Friday, November 15, 2013


Anthropologie launched a new weekend promotion this morning: save 20% off party shoes and sale dresses! I've noticed that many new dresses hit sale as well. Will you partake? Is your Anthropologie shopping cart still showing free shipping?

Thanks to everyone who emailed me about this!

Catharsis: I can't find my size in-store and it's sold out online!

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Want to buy the Chava Pencil Skirt ($98)? If you wear a size XL, you're SOL.

In recent months I've noticed more and more angry emails coming my way about Anthropologie sizing. The feedback ranges from "It's such a tease that they even show an item was made in an XL, because it's always sold out a day or two after the item appears online" to "Does Anthropologie really carry items in a size 00/size 16? Because I've never seen any in-store." If you're a fringe size it seems like it's getting harder and harder to find your size at full price and nearly impossible on sale.


Reviews: Scalloped Shift Dress, Toulouse Embellished Shift, Amalie Dress, Starry Night Dress, Starshine Brocade Dress, Deryn Dress, Cavatina Maxi Dress

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

The Toulouse Embellished Shift ($178) had me seeing red -- in a good way.

This reviews set should be subtitled Party on, Wayne. My last visit to Anthropologie was all about seeking out holiday party dresses. Inside, what worked and what left me unmoved.

Anthropologie gets in shape with a new activewear line

Tuesday, November 12, 2013


Last month, Anthropologie snuck an entirely new category onto its website: activewear. Typical to Anthropologie there are lots of items adorned with ruffles and flowers. But upon a closer look there's something surprising: this line kinda rocks!

The winner of EA's Blogiversary contest is...

EMILY!


Emily has claimed her prize. Congrats to this lucky duck and THANK YOU to everyone that entered. We'll get to live her experience vicariously in a few weeks -- Emily will be writing a guest post about her Personal Styling experience with Christina, Anthropologie's Head Personal Stylist.  I am so excited to hear about it!!! I'll be holding some more contests closer to the holidays.

A HUGE thanks to Anthropologie for partnering with me to fulfill this contest. It was so much more than I hoped for and their kindness has given me a case of the mushy sniffles. Although they have no official blog partners I've always appreciated that they let this community be, are generally patient and are very easy to work with. (Trust me, I work with tons of brands for my day job and it's not nearly this easy with many other brands.) I love you guys!!

And I love YOU GUYS!! This blog would not be anything without you, amazing exceptionally awesome witty incredible friendly funny community! I love chatting with you, I love writing for you, I love getting my daily fill of shopping and Anthropologie with you. Thank you for being here. I adore you!

Quick shots: HATS!!!

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

verdict: liked it!

Last week I had some time to kill before attending a seminar in Chelsea. Which of course led me to the Chelsea Market Anthropologie, where I happened across a multi-hat display downstairs. I decided to snap some quick photos of several hats. I think it's helpful to see how they look on a head!

I don't have much in the way of commentary on these hats. I liked some of them, didn't like others, but hats are not really my thing. My face is long and kinda rectangular-angular so hats and sunnies are tricky for me. Anthro's got such cute toppers though and I did like some of these a lot.

I know the photo quality isn't the best. The camera on the iPhone 4S is a huge step backwards in my opinion and I'm just counting the days until I can upgrade to the 5S which has a far superior camera. (Stupid Paris pickpockets taking my iPhone 4 last year. Grrrr.)

Anthropologie's SALE surprises and delights!!!

Examining Corey Lynn Calter's Petites-Exclusive Anthropologie Collection

Saturday, November 2, 2013

I should have been a little more specific when I wished for the
Malmaison Petite Dress ($158) to be carried by Anthropologie.

Back in April I had the pleasure of attending Corey Lynn Calter's Fall 2013 presentation at the Jane Ballroom. CLC and Anthropologie have a long and storied history among Anthro fans that includes memorable pieces like the Caranday Dress, Monochromatic Corset Dress, Sugared Dress and Ackee Pencil Skirt (which I own and love!) just to name a few. There were several Fall 2013 pieces I hoped to see at Anthropologie, including the Malmaison Petite Dress ($158).

I sort of got my wish. A couple of weekends ago Anthropologie unveiled a petites-exclusive collaboration with Corey Lynn Calter. I can't help but be a bit jealous of my smaller-framed sisters. Inside, a look at the pieces from the collab and a community report from the collection launch party in Corte Madera, CA.
