First dibs on 5 new designer collections at Anthropologie.com!!

Monday, December 30, 2013


Wondering what January has in store for Anthropologie? Anthro members get a first dibs sneak peek today at 5 new designer collections: Zimmerman, Cynthia Vincent, Sollis Jewelry, Seaworthy and Lauren Moffat for Lauren Merkin.

The email features the Frangipani Peasant Top ($395) from Zimmerman. A few items jumped out at me -- the Pali Maxi Dress ($398), the Crossroads Bracelet ($78) and the Duo-Pop Satchel ($398). You can shop all the pre-shop items here. What do you think of these sneak preview items?

The weekend in-store community post

Friday, December 27, 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 submit your outfit, 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.

Anthropologie's Winter Tag Sale begins: Take an extra 25% off sale clothing!!

Thursday, December 26, 2013



Without all the usual fanfare, Anthropologie's Winter Tag sale is here! Beginning today, take an extra 25% off all sale clothing. Shoes are included tooUse the code 25BELOW at checkout. How long will this sale last? Typically until the New Year although these days every Anthro tradition seems to be up in the air.

By policy Anthropologie will not honor PAs during the Tag Sale; however I'm sure the comments section will fill up with community members who are able to get PAs. So it never hurts to ask! Just note that the fine print does say no PAs or combining this with other discounts, i.e. the Birthday Discount.

In case you missed it Anthro made a ton of fresh cuts yesterday; check out the EA list here or shop the fresh cuts here. Will you participate in the winter Tag Sale? I'll likely stop by at least one of the NYC Anthropologies today to see what's up.

Here's the promo fine print:
Enjoy an extra 25% off sale merchandise online and in US and Canada stores for a limited time. Enter code 25BELOW at checkout. This offer does not apply to full-price merchandise, holiday trim or previously placed orders, and cannot be combined with any other discounts.

The holidays have gone on sale at Anthropologie! Inside, the latest clothing markdowns -- and be sure to check your wishlist for 2nd/3rd/etc cuts!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, December 15, 2013


After a sizable sale this past Monday at Anthropologie, a new sale seems unlikely tomorrow. Free Shipping is in effect until 3 AM on orders of $150+ so it feels like something is on the way...but I'm guessing promotion over markdowns. What do you think? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!

Take 40% off all Anthropologie cords -- this weekend only!! Plus, get Free Shipping on orders of $150+!!

Friday, December 13, 2013

The Pilcro Serif Cord Leggings, now 40% off.

Reviews: Audra Pencil Skirt, Calabria Pencil Skirt, Odette Skirt, Emerald Flounce Skirt, Karavi Skirt

Thursday, December 12, 2013

Wishing the Calabria Pencil Skirt ($88) looked like this on me.

Skirts, skirts, a winter staple for me. (And a summer one too I suppose.) I love wearing them with tights and pumps to work or braving 10 seconds of cold from cab to destination on holiday party dates. Inside, a look at several of Anthropologie's current skirt offerings.

Anthropologie's SALE is here to start your week off right!

Monday, December 9, 2013


Anthropologie's sale is back with fresh cuts and plenty of 2nd/3rd/etc cuts this morning! Inside, the newest markdowns.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, December 8, 2013


A sale is on the way tomorrow at Anthropologie. There will be first cuts in some sections of clothing as well as jewelry, shoes and accessories. But the real story might be all the 2nd/3rd/etc cuts on the way! Now might be a good time to take a look at what's already on sale at Anthropologie -- because tomorrow those sale items might be less!

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

The Pirouette Dress ($228) is ready for the holiday spotlight.

Holiday party season is here and Anthropologie has a plethora of pretty frocks that seem perfect for a evening's festivities. On a recent trip to around the NYC stores I tried on some party dresses as well as a few day dresses that jumped out at me.


Canadian Anthropologie lovers getting slapped with high duties by DHL


Oh no, Canada! Anthropologie seems to have recently changed its Canadian shipping methods and several community members have contacted me about getting slapped with high duties when their Anthropologie order arrives. What changed, what you can do, and why you really need to contact Anthropologie directly about this instead of me.

Anthropologie's not having a sale this week but I am!

Tuesday, December 3, 2013


After a yearlong project I am finally nearing the end of my great closet cleanout! 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.

Anthropologie's Cyber Monday deal 2013: Free Shipping, No Minimum, today only! Plus, BHDLN's too!

Monday, December 2, 2013


Anthropologie's feeling the holiday spirit! Wrapping up the post-Thanksigiving Black Friday weekend is today's Cyber Monday 'holiday' as retailers try to entice us into stores and onto their websites. Anthropologie's doing the exact same promotion it did last year: Free Shipping, no minimum, today only on its website. Enter the code ONEDAY at checkout.

After a wonderful weekend of promotions is this deal worth it? Could be! Anthropologie unveiled a small bunch of new arrivals today (mixed in with not-as-new arrivals). And if you've been waiting to buy, say, a gift card that's being delivered by snail mail this is the first promo you can take advantage of on it!

Or, perhaps one word sums up your hopes for today: popbacks. I might use today's promo as an excuse to pick up some of Anthropologie's pretty wrapping paper and accessories that I haven't seen in the local stores. (The only thing more fun to me than unwrapping gifts is wrapping gifts.)

Once again BHLDN is playing along today too, offering an extra 30% off its sale for today only. Gowns are not included unfortunately but there are still plenty of sale goodies to love! BHLDN just marked down some of its dresses on Friday so this seems like a spectacular deal to me!

Will you take advantage of today's Free Shipping/no minimum promotion? How about BHDLN's extra 30% off sale promo?
