Eye Candy: Anthropologie February 2015 Lookbook

Thursday, January 29, 2015


Anthropologie has unveiled its online February 2015 Catalogue preview, and it's beautiful! There's usually a paired post on Anthro's official blog but it's not live yet...any guesses on location? This looks an awful lot like Costa Rica to me...but maybe that's because I'm just back from a trip there.

Longer skirts are wonderful and there are plenty to see within this preview. I don't like a single pair of pants shot however, nor do I see anything remotely resembling work-appropriate gear. Oh Anthropologie, I have such a love-wtf relationship with you sometime.

See the rest of the lookbook shots here or check out all the new arrivals here (a little Anthro old school print fun courtesy of the telephone version of the Clementina Pencil Skirt perhaps?) -- or you can see my new arrival picks in this post.

Investigating Anthropologie's newest arrivals

Monday, January 26, 2015

A cardigan that's pretty from the front and gorgeous from the back!
Anthropologie's Morning Petals Cardigan ($148), among my favorites from their new arrivals.

I felt inspired when I saw the look above -- now here's a casual outfit that looks like classic Anthropologie and is something I'd totally wear! Inside, more of my picks from the latest new stuff including the first dibs February page Anthro sent out to its loyalty members this morning.

Free Shipping is back at Anthropologie!!!


Just in time for February new arrivals (which I'll cover later today in another post) and a huge winter storm expected to bury New England, the NYC metropolitan tri-state area and parts of the Eastern Seaboard Anthropologie has decided to give us a little present in the form of FREE SHIPPING!

Get Free Shipping on your Anthropologie.com order of $150+ today -- use the code FS150 at checkoutI'm unsure how long this promo runs...hopefully there will be an email about it today.

I am so very tempted to use this promo to grab the Prima Tulle Dress ($995) which I've been admiring all month and would become a little more affordable with the birthday discount. Although my size is no longer available an 8 is...which would be close enough to work with I think, especially since Sachin + Babi tends to run small. The other dress topping my wishlist is the Rona Basketweave Dress ($278).

Will you take advantage of this free shipping promo? 

Call for Reader Outfit submissions!! Show off your Tag Sale haul!

Sunday, January 25, 2015

The Blue Toile Jumpsuit from Spring 2013.

Did you do some major hauling during Anthropologie's Tag Sale? Bought something recently you really love and can't stop wearing? If so, the community wants to see what you got! It's time to put together your Anthro best for an upcoming Readers Outfit post.

If you've submitted an outfit to me in the last few months I have it and will run it as part of this post! (Though of course you are more than welcome to submit another, I know it's been awhile.) This post will run one week from today. Please submit your outfit to me via email no later than Saturday February 3rd at 3 PM ET. It'll be like our own special Super Bowl!

I can't promise the regular return of Reader Outfits yet due to my unusual work schedule right now but I can promise that this next edition will be tons of fun!! I can't wait to see the latest looks.

Anthropologie's SALE finally sees new additions!!!

Friday, January 23, 2015


With the extra 40% off sale now over, Anthropologie has finally added fresh cuts to its sale section. There are 2nd/3rd/etc cuts too so be sure to check your wishlists! Inside, picks from the newest markdowns.


Help me celebrate my birthday and you could win a $250 Anthropologie gift card!!!

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Happy Birthday to me -- and you too!


It's been awhile since we've done a good old gift card contest on Effortless Anthropologie, and what day could possibly be better to kick off a new contest than my birthday?!?

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Monday, January 19, 2015


Anthropologie's Tag Sale is still on -- use the code EXTRAEXTRA at checkout to get an extra 40% off sale items. What does that mean for fresh markdowns? From what I hear many stores still have overflowing sale rooms, so it's hard to imagine too many new sale markdowns tomorrow. (Even if they are overdue.)

Instead, I'm expecting that if anything tomorrow we might see 2nd/3rd/etc cuts. New sale next week? Tomorrow? Nothing tomorrow? No one knows for sure yet which is why it's time to play the Sale Guessing Game!

{Weekly} Popbacks Open Thread

Friday, January 16, 2015



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.

Holy cow!! Take an EXTRA 40% off Anthropologie SALE!!!

Wednesday, January 14, 2015


Holy CRAP. For the first time in a looooonnnngggg time, Anthropologie's Tag Sale has gone nuclear. For a limited time, take an extra 40% off your Anthropologie sale purchase in-store or online. Use the code EXTRAEXTRA at checkout.

If you live near an Anthropologie store it's totally worth a trip right now -- from what I've seen during quick pop-ins on my recent travels the stores have TONS of stock compared to the (also-plentiful) online sale section and lots of stuff that's no longer online is available in-store.

From the online selection my picks would be the:
Sombra Pencil Skirt (now $90), Aristata Top (now $100, looks amazeballs with a pair of ankle pants), Daisy Eyelet Skirt (now $90), Delphi Dress (now $220, the waist is super flattering though the fabric is stiff), Damaris Crossbody Bag (now $150), Fronzolo Necklace (now $200), the Grand Street Dress (now $150), the Fringed Sweater Skirt (now $50), the Laced Trellis Top (now $50). Those prices are before the extra 40% off. And as mentioned yesterday be sure to check your wishlist for popbacks -- I've seen stuff that's 2+ years old popping back over the past day.

I can't believe it! I guess this is what the popbackastravaganza yesterday was leading up to. As usual the official Anthropologie line is no PAs but it never hurts to ask. Will you participate in this ridiculous sale?

It's an Anthropologie popback-a-stravaganza!!

Tuesday, January 13, 2015


Thanks to Anthropolitan, who noted that Anthropologie has updated its site with a major amount of popbacks this morning! These tend to go very quickly -- there are only one or two of each popback after all -- but I highly encourage every Anthro fan to check their wishlist! You are also welcome to use this post's comment section to post popbacks...I'll add some shortly.

Please also feel free to use it as an open thread.

Anthropologie's SALE is ready to be welcomed into your home!

Monday, January 12, 2015


There are indeed new Anthropologie sale items this morning; but unlike my hope for clothing instead it's a home sale! These home item markdowns have been mixed in with older clothing markdowns in Anthro's fresh cuts section, perhaps as a tease to get us to take a second look.

Anthropologie's first sale after the new year is traditionally a home sale so this isn't unusual; it's just a week or two later than expected. Inside, picks from the freshest cuts!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, January 11, 2015


Anthropologie's Tag Sale is still on -- use the code INAFLURRY at checkout to get an extra 25% off sale items. What does that mean for sale tomorrow? There's lots of stuff that's past due for markdowns. I feel like we have to wake up to some kind of sale tomorrow...right?

There are lots of holiday leftovers and party wear that should be marked down. Will the 25% off sale still be in effect tomorrow? Guesses are welcome! (I think it will be, for at least one more day.) Come on Anthropologie -- we're eager for sale! It's time to play the Sale Guessing Game!

Eye Candy: Anthropologie January 2015 Lookbook...sort of

Wednesday, January 7, 2015


Last week I felt confused as to whether there is a January 2015 Anthropologie Lookbook or not. Via Anthro's official blog, it turns out that there is one! But...there's no page for it on Anthro's website...and when you click on the products from the catalogue the lookbook photos aren't included on the page. Okkkkaaayyyy...totally weird, Anthropologie.

Update 9:09: Just got an email from Anthropologie that links to a January lookbook shopping page, but not the actual lookbook itself.

Perhaps this is because they featured two 'real-world' models this month, whatever that means. Although I hate classifying people into whether they are real-world or not because everyone's real-world in some way unless Photoshop interjects I do love the idea that Anthropologie reached out to two of its favorite artist collaborators and asked them to model clothing. The artists are Agatha Kulaga, whose medium is baking (yum!) and Rebecca Rebouché -- an artist I had the pleasure of meeting at an in-store event a few years back. Lots more to read, including an interview with them both, over on Anthro's official blog.

The resulting photos are stunning -- I am confounded that Anthropologie wouldn't want to post these on their site. But I've given up trying to figure them out! Instead, inside are a few more shots grabbed from the blog plus some more photos I think could be from the lookbook, and some additional January picks. The photos I've used in this post are the only ones I could find so they are smaller than usual and bi-fold.

Much like we Aquarians, this month Anthropologie is being the ultimate in impossible for anyone else to figure out. Makes me kinda proud, actually.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, January 4, 2015


We should wake up tomorrow morning to new Anthropologie markdowns, plus an extra % off sale items. Before that can happen though we have to guess what might go on sale. Expect cuts across all clothing departments, plus accessories and home. Especially holiday stuff! An Anthro Christmas Elf has provided a pretty solid list of things we can expect to see marked down tomorrow...

It's not too late to get 25% off sale on Anthropologie's site right now -- use the code INAFLURRY at checkout

I'm anticipating a big sale tomorrow -- lots of holiday leftovers and party wear should be marked down. Will the 25% off sale still be in effect tomorrow? That I'm not as sure about. It's time to play the Sale Guessing Game!
