Eye Candy: Anthropologie June 2014 Lookbook

Saturday, May 31, 2014


Anthropologie has released a bunch of preview shots for their June 2014 catalogue. The dresses have been pretty sensational this year, don't you think? The tops continue to be too big and square to really draw me in with some exceptions. It's always nice to see lovely photos of pretty clothing. Inside, 9 more looks.

Lunch Break: Bags on Sale

Wednesday, May 28, 2014


I love handbags. Love them, want them, watch them all the time. Right now it's prime designer handbag sale season and TONS of options are marked down just in time for my grabby hands to, well, grab. Like the Tory Burch bag above (though which color to get is up for debate).

Inside, a whole lotta bags that have been marked down on sale. Designer, not designer, something for everyone.

Outfits: More Work Inspiration

Tuesday, May 27, 2014


I get plenty of outfit inspiration from the various blogging photo communities. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite looks -- and hopefully introduce you to some excellent bloggers you might not know about yet but should follow! Not all of these ladies have blogs but for those who do, I've linked to both the Chictopia page with their outfit and their blog. Since many of these photos are old, underneath I've given some buying options so you can recreate the look (or something similar).

Reviews: Verona Midi Pullover, Townsend Pullover, Franja Pullover, Ruffled Citrus Pullover, Emerson Pullover, Splitback Pullover

Thursday, May 15, 2014

I think maybe Anthropologie doesn't know the meaning of 'sweater.'
The Franja Pullover ($88) and more, reviewed.


Hunting for sweaters despite the weather? You better believe it. Spring in New York City can mean anything from 50s to 80s, especially these days. Not quite as crazy as the May snowstorms I used to get in college in Colorado, but still...

Reviews: Islet Buttondown, Lovell Buttondown, Fitz Tank, Anana Midi Tank, Pintucked Silk Top

Critters! How I love them on my fun weekend wear. 
The Fitz Tank ($78) and more get the review treatment.

Today in Anthropologie top reviews: buttowndowns, tank tops and a v-neck.

Reviews: Tiered Midi Tank, Edie Swing Tee, Framed Lace Tank, Opal Top, Campanula Tank, Shimmered Azucar Tunic

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Tops may appear different in real life, like the Campanula Tank ($68).

Since I was so rough on Anthropologie's top assortments in my last review go-rounds here and here, let me begin by saying that I found more to love in my May shopping trips. Inside, the first of 25+ Anthropologie top and swing sweater reviews.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, May 11, 2014


Last week brought a lovely sale to Anthropologie. Will more markdowns arrive in the morning? Right now Anthro has a plethora of online-only items that have been sitting on the website for months, never reviewed, leaving me to wonder if anyone has tried those items on. Will they get marked down? Just one way to find out -- time to play the Sale Guessing Game!!

Treat yourself to 15% off at Anthropologie -- TODAY ONLY!!

Saturday, May 10, 2014


To celebrate Mother's Day weekend Anthropologie is offering 15% off your full-price online order or in-store purchase, TODAY ONLY! Enter the code KISSKISS at checkout. Considering how rare Anthropologie promotions are I think this is a lovely gesture, especially given that Mother's Day is Sunday!!
