Playing the Sale Guessing Game (again!)

Monday, March 31, 2014


Sale is on tomorrow morning! What do you think will be marked down? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and speculate!

Last day for Free Shipping at Anthropologie!!


The weekend may be over but Anthropologie's Free Shipping promotion is not! We have one more day to take advantage of this offer: now through April 1 at 3 AM ET enjoy free shipping on your Anthropologie.com order of $150+. Use the code WEGOTTHIS at checkout.

Unlike other recent Anthro free shipping promos there is no requirement to have a full-priced item in your cart which is great! I have several online-only items in my cart right now: the Gemme Dress ($278), the Jennings Dress ($128), the Horizons Sweater Dress ($298), the Blushbloom Sheath ($190), and the Sunblossom Dress ($178) -- the last of which is out of stock in my size at the moment, boo.

Have you placed an order during this promotion? Will you place one? With sale expected tomorrow morning, I'm torn.

With Free Shipping in effect until early Tuesday morning, will Anthropologie have a sale tomorrow? Will they wait until Tuesday? Or will there be no sale at all this week? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game!

Eye Candy: Anthropologie April 2014 Lookbook

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Madrone Wedges ($95), Fleur de Sel Necklace ($58).
Gorgeous model, gorgeous outfit!

Anthropologie's April 2014 lookbook flew online yesterday before I even had a chance to run the preview shots! Inside, a look at several shots from the catalogue and my thoughts. Per Anthro's official blog part of the lookbook was shot at the Brooklyn Art library. The rest looks like a cafe and either a greenhouse or a botanical garden solarium. It's like Anthropologie knows I'm dying to for the weather to warm up so I can wander around the Bronx Botanical Garden!

Heads up Anthro lovers! Free Shipping is back!!!

Friday, March 28, 2014


Free Shipping is back at Anthropologie! Now through April 1 at 3 AM ET enjoy free shipping on your Anthropologie.com order of $150+. Use the code WEGOTTHIS at checkout.

Hmm, does this make it time to order the Brora Dress ($348)? Will you take advantage of this offer? Will there be a sale on Monday?!?! So much to wonder about. The April 2014 catalogue is now up on Anthro's site too -- I'll have a full post for that tomorrow.

An Anthropologie clothing sale last week means this week might be quiet...or perhaps the surprise of a sale two weeks in a row? One never knows which is why it's time to play the Sale Guessing Game!

Investigating Anthropologie's newest arrivals

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Strange outfit proportions, awesome necklace combination.

While the community seems to be in agreement that March's Anthropologie unveilings have been somewhat underwhelming, that doesn't mean there isn't anything to love. Inside, some of the non-lookbook new arrivals that have potential and items that just missed tempting me. (Looking for this month's catalogue? Check out this post.)

Spring 2014 in Black & White

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

1 - Zara // 2 - Madewell // 3 - Coach // 4 - French Connection //

Living in NYC it's easy to get caught up in a sea of black, white and grey. Though I love to mix color into my looks to shake off the doldrums of a Manhattan uniform I've noticed my closet becoming unbalanced toward the bold and the bright. Suddenly, I'm thinking basics again.

Quick Review Hits: More Tops

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

A look at several Anthropologie tops, including the Leydon Top ($98).

I hope Anthropologie you can sense my frustration about this ridiculous tops situation! It's not that I think every top should fit. Usually I find at least a few hits. These days however it's more misses than ever. And I am dissapointed.

Inside, following up this morning's rhyming reviews, are my thoughts on tops round two.

Quick Review Hits: Tops

In this Anthropologie tops reviews set, a look at the Dahlia Peplum Blouse ($178) and more.

Although I always put lots of thought into my reviews, sometimes I look at a pic and don't know what to do. I haven't got a ton to say about items that make me look a bad way. In the past when this would happen I'd rhyme myself to stimulate interest and passion.

So because these tops are mostly flops I'm bringing back this concept for some pop. Some of these items looked fine on me but most, well, you'll see...

East Africa by way of Anthropologie: The Legend & Song collection

Wednesday, March 5, 2014


As it so often does, Anthropologie has sought out original designs from far flung places to bring a touch of the worldly to its stores. This time around the spot is East Africa, where Anthro collaborated with several local artisans to create the Legend & Song Collection. Think: bold prints, beautiful beaded jewelry and texture-rific bags.

Inside, a closer look at the collection.
