Shop Anthropologie's July new arrivals first!!

Monday, June 29, 2015


Aloha from the calm northern shores of Kauai, where it's 6 AM and I was just about to head out on my morning run around Princeville (you can share some of my adventures via my Instagram!) when I noticed this first dibs email from Anthropologie featuring July's new arrivals!

These arrivals aren't yet available to the general public online, though I'm pretty sure I'd seen at least a couple of these things in stores before heading over to the Hawaiian islands. (I'll be visiting Anthro's new store on Oahu, its first in Hawaii, late this week!) Interestingly, while the last few pre-shops have been several pages long this one is just one lonely page that's pretty short. Not sure what's Anthropologie's thought behind that is, though based on what I'd seen in-store I am very excited to see the rest of July's new arrivals.

From the page, here's what I'm digging: the Mira Tank ($78) and the Vivi Lace Tank ($88) of course, because I'm enamored with nearly every white tank in existence; the Guilhermina Rattler Wrap-Around Flats ($188) -- I love this lace-up style; the Embroiderd Chaparral Tunic ($98) which looks like the perfect top to throw on over a pair of shorts or a simple slipdress; and the Strands Cuff ($38) seems to be a less expensive version of the fine jewelry I've been drooling over on Anthro's site recently. Check out all the pre-shop items for yourself here. Thoughts?

In other new arrivals goodness, since I've now seen a few conversations about it in the comments, I wanted to mention that there is a new colorway of Byron Lars' GORGEOUS Laced Peplum Jacket ($228) in stores...has not hit the website yet. I'm guessing it will be online at the same time as the new catalogue shots. I purchased the new black/white version about a week and a half ago now and I can't wait to wear it. It ran TTS for me (I am an 8 in jackets) though note that the waist is very cinched so if you are an apple shape you may need to size up. Can't wait til the pretty new version is online for all to see!

In Tag Sale news...well there really isn't much to update you with at this time. The extra 20% off sale promotion continues (details here)...there's no free shipping to speak of (though there rarely is during Tag Sale time) and so far Anthropologie has not heeded our call for a promo on new items either. I'm not sure what will happen this week since the extra 20% off sale hit a week earlier than it usually does; but this seems to bode well for possible additional cuts before the Tag Sale ends. If you're wondering what a Tag Sale even is, check out this post.
