Some last minute pickups before we say goodbye to 2015

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Wearing these glasses to ring in the new year!

It's time to say goodbye to 2015 but before I do, I'd like to share a few of the final great deals I've picked up this year...

My brain is fried so here are some pretty new pretties I'm in love with at Anthropologie

Monday, December 28, 2015

For my birthday, I may want this entire outfit, but with these shoes swapped in.
Help me, Anthropologie. You're my only hope.
Trench // Top // Skirt // Shoes


Yes, yes, I know. It's Tag Sale time and that's all many in the community care about right now...understandably. But today I checked my mail and what did I find? My January Anthropologie birthday discount!!!

That and as the title of this post states my brain is fried from how friggin hard I've been working to make three deadlines before Christmas (all made!) and now all I can think of are mushy things and pretty pretties from Anthropologie. So come along with me as I try to string together coherent sentences about clothing I like and want...

(Good stuff inside, I promise.)

Playing the Sale Guessing Game {again}!

Thursday, December 24, 2015



Christmas is here and the next round of Anthropologie sale kicks off tomorrow! A tipster has sent along great clues about a bunch of the markdowns on the way, so come on inside, sit by the fire and toast yourself to great deals headed our way. It's time to play the Sale Guessing Game!

A giftable promo today at Anthropologie!

Wednesday, December 23, 2015


Anthropologie is keeping things light and fun leading up to Christmas, with a new promo practically each day to occupy us! Today's promo is 20% off great gifts and there are a whopping 8 pages worth of clothing, home accessories, candles, beauty and so on that would delight any recipient under the tree. This promo is valid in-store and online and there is no code which means you can apply the birthday discount online!

Of course, guaranteeing these items arrive in time for Christmas will require express shipping at this point and probably a little bit of help from Santa's helpers. But hey, a present is still a present no matter what day it arrives.

Me? I'll take a look but I'm about ready for sale. Dispatches from the road when I can...

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Monday, December 21, 2015


It's been promo after promo at Anthropologie! Today they are offering 30% off select giftables -- throws, candles, mugs & more. It's exciting but what the community is really waiting for is the next round of markdowns! They will happen sometime this week; possibly as early as tomorrow. So let's play the Sale Guessing Game in anticipation of that...

Take 20% off your ENTIRE Anthropologie purchase, this weekend only!

Saturday, December 19, 2015


And there we go! As I promised yesterday Anthropologie has unveiled its next promo and, well, it's pretty awesome! This weekend only take 20% off your entire Anthropologie purchase! New stuff! Sale stuff! Home stuff! Holiday stuff! It's all included. Use the code STOCKUP at checkout.

Oh my Anthro. You're totally tempting me to go off the Christmas gift shopping rails and pick up a few things for myself! Right now I'm sitting staring at a cart with items for me like the Zella Skirt ($178), Feathered Fete Clutch ($98), Hesperia Vegan Weekender ($128), Codetta Mockneck Dress ($188), Saraid Dress ($148) -- that raspberry color is so pretty!, and the Seamed Boiled Wool Dress ($148) in the wine OMG, and thinking can I really not buy these things right now?!?


Community, are you tempted too?

Anthropologie unveils two BIG new promos!

Thursday, December 17, 2015


Whoa, this one's pretty huge! As I promised over the weekend Anthropologie has introduced new promos today and they're both awesome. First up, all sweaters are 40% off. Yes, you read that right. Full price sweaters. Sale sweaters. 40% off. Jaw on the floor! Use the code GETCOZY at checkout.

Anthro wasn't content to leave it at that though. They've also taken 25% off select full-price boots! The prices of the boots have already been discounted to reflect this promo.

On top of all this, Anthropologie is also offering Free Shipping on orders of $100+ with that same GETCOZY code at checkout. These promos are valid both in-store and online.

Whew! Picks? Here are some of my faves. The Cowled Cashmere Tunic ($228) is so soft and pretty, the Beaded Fairisle Pullover ($148) is surely coming home to me, I love the new Ribboned Cables Pullover ($158) and the Nolina Pullover ($88). I hope this promo applies to the Overland Sweater Coat ($138).

In boots, my drool is on for the Miss Albright Jora Boots (now $261), the Splendid Tatum Wedge Boots (now $216) and the gorgeous Sam Edelman Winnie Ankle Boots (now $147); I own the leather version of the Dolce Vita Okana Boots (now $210) and adore them; the Sorel Joan of Arctic Fur Trim Boots (now $128) are one of my favorite functional and pretty winter boots.

What will you pick up during this promotion?

Checking in with Anthropologie's new arrivals -- something for them, something for you

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

A perfect little gift that can hold trinkets, jewelry, or any number of little things.

Note: Don't forget about FREE SHIPPING with no minimum order total! Use the code NOMINIMUM at checkout!

Hanukkah may be over for 2015, but there's apparently some other holiday or two happening later this month...? Something with...trees? Have you heard of it?

All kidding aside, Christmas is nearly here and with the joy of some last-minute party invites, some new friendships kindling and some family I need to shop for, my current new arrivals wishlist is a decent mix of gifts for them and gifts for me. Inside, lots of amazing options for them under $25 and under $50, plus some things I'd like for myself that may cost a little more than that...

A Tuesday morning treat! Free Shipping, no minimum at Anthropologie!!

Tuesday, December 15, 2015


Here's a delightful morning treat from Anthropologie. For a 'limited time' Anthropologie is offering FREE SHIPPING with no minimum order total! Use the code NOMINIMUM at checkout!

This is a very sweet offer on Anthropologie's part. However I can't help but be a little Grinchy about this one. Because Anthropologie has been using LASERSUCK (cue lightning bolts, dark storm clouds and evil laughter) to ship their packages lately, and Lasership is not reliable in my area at all (3 lost packages and counting this year!) I've been springing for 2-day shipping lately on my Anthro orders. It's delivered by UPS who may be overwhelmed with packages right now, but at least they get here. Not so much with Lasersuck!

Free People recently offered a free 2-day shipping upgrade Anthro. I'm putting some sibling rivalry in place here -- are you really gonna let Free People show you up on this??? Come on now.

Will you take advantage of this offer? (I probably will.)

Fresh post coming up later today on EA!

It's a happy weekend from Anthropologie -- take 25% off full price apparel + Free Shipping!

Friday, December 11, 2015


It's a happy weekend indeed for Anthropologie lovers! What a lovely surprise to see that this weekend, we can enjoy 25% off our full-price apparel purchase AND get Free Shipping on orders of $150+!! Use the code 2FORYOU at checkout for one or the other of these promos, or both.

That's not all either -- Anthropologie is also running a few giftables promos this weekend too! Monogram mugs are all 25% off; throws are 25% off too!

Picks? Sure, I've got a few. I'll almost certainly use this promo to pick up another color of the Slubbed Baseball Tee ($58) which I already own in two colors and adore; and probably the other color of the Sava Henley ($58) too; oh and the other color of the Matin Tunic ($88); I've had my eye on the Teni Blouse ($88) in that gorgeous red; the Overland Sweater Coat ($138) looks ever more appealing; the Beaded Fairisle Pullover ($148) has been calling my name; I've wanted one of these golden monogram mugs (now $8) forever; and it's not included in this promo but my god this Moscow Mule Mug ($24) is amazeballs.

And then giftwise, both the Snow Dusting Throw (now $111) and Moroccan Wedding Throw (now $96) have been on my list as gifts for friends -- and maybe this one for me; the Wile Tunic ($78) and Fringe Stripe Tank ($88) will be perfect for my friend who works as an executive assistant in a fashion office; the Farrier Tee ($58) and Cowled Cashmere Tunic ($228) are perfect for my friend looking for apres-ski wear...and so on down the line it goes.

What a wonderful weekend for gift shopping. Will this entice you to place an order or visit a store?

Canadians -- check your Paypal account for a special offer from Anthropologie!

Thursday, December 10, 2015


If you're a Canadian Anthopologie lover with a Paypal account, you may want to log in to Paypal and check your account! A community members sent this email above that she received, offering $20 off your Anthropologie purchase of $150+. That's pretty friggin sweet!

As far as I can tell this offer is valid in Canada only, and requires using Paypal as your payment method. It cannot be used on gift cards or the like. Did you receive this offer too?

2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Curl Up Inside

All dogs sleep like heaven.

Can you believe it's already Hanukkah??! Where the heck has 2015 gone? Welcome to the EA's 2015 Holiday Guide which like everything else here will be published irregularly until the holidays arrive. Gifts for her, gifts for him, gifts for pup and gifts for host/hostess will all be covered...

I have a wonderful super-cool dog named Cinnamon. She's part of the family to be sure...though we are not those pet owners who treat our dog like a child. Except of course that I can't help from spoiling her just a little bit. Which is where today's gift idea comes in. This one is both pet luxe and somewhat practical, especially if your dog is multiple colors like mine.

A few months ago I gave up trying to keep the white sleeping pads inside Cinnamon's doggie bed and crate clean and instead invested in a Luxe Faux Fur Pet Bed (now $95-$149). This pet bed is amazing. Not only does it come in two shades guaranteed to coordinate with nearly any fur color, it's also somehow machine washable. It comes out of the wash just as soft as the day we brought it home too! 

My dog sheds a ton, especially around the season changes, so this bed is a god-send. Where it was nearly impossible to keep her doggie bed looking clean a few months after buying it before, now the bed looks great and soft no matter what! No more dingy dog pad making my apartment look less clean than it is. Now it's the bed even my friends admit they'd kinda like to try themselves. 

Rectangular isn't the only shape for this bed -- it also comes in round and there is a travel throw version, perfect for taking to the ski house or wherever your winter travels may lead. Plus right now you can take 20% off your entire order with the code PRIVATE

And for those of us a little jealous that our pup (or kitty) is getting such posh sleeping digs, fear not! These beds also come in the human version -- throws! I own the Luxe Faux Fur Throw in 'artic fox', a creamy white that's kept me warm and toasty on many a cold winter's night. It also comes in an oversized faux exotic coloring -- I'm partial to the coyote or the red fox version; a smaller couch appropriate version that I like in fog; and a non-animal colored dark graphite version of the oversized throw. Obviously I love that these feel soft like animal pelts but are not actually real! 

Your pet will lackadaisically wag his or her tail while barely looking up from the comfort of her or his new awesome pet bed. And really, is there anything better than that for holiday cheer? You can half-heartedly wave back from the comfort of underneath your super-warm, super soft fuzzy blanket.

Some great deals happening today around the webby world

Tuesday, December 8, 2015


Things are pretty quiet on the Anthropologie front today, and I'm relaxing after attending a fabulous gala last nite at Lincoln Center before I kick of 14 days of community service to close out the year. But there's no resting around the webby world where a bunch of retailers are running awesome sales to tempt us into shopping.

The best deal today comes via Free People -- they have two promos running. First, from now until midnite EST, take 50% off select boots! And then in a well-coordinated promo select tall socks are now 3/$30. Excellent ideas, FP!

Inside, more sales and promos happening today and picks...

Want to win your favorite Anthropologie or BHLDN item this holiday season? Here's how!

Monday, December 7, 2015


Does your gift list for Santa include something from Anthropologie? Of course it does -- why else would you read this blog?!? Anthropologie's been tipped off and wants to help the gift-givers in your life out a bit with its Dear Anthro contest.

I'm so delighted Anthropologie is running this contest again this year! Here's how it works: post either a Tweet or Instagram with the top item on your Anthropologie holiday wishlist, tag that tweet or Instagram with #DearAnthro #entry and @anthropologie. From now through December 18, 2015 Anthropologie will randomly be granting these wishes!

Last year I was lucky enough to be one of the winners, getting my wish granted for the Eyelet Embroidered Sheet Set in grey. One year later I thoroughly adore the sheets! I remember there were some pretty perfectly extravagant wishes granted last year -- for very expensive party dresses, furniture and the like, so don't be afraid to wish big!

Since I won last year I'm unlikely to enter this year, but if I did enter I'd likely wish for the Pom Field Beanie ($130), the Zella Skirt ($178), or a Byron Lars dress. Or as one more idea, the Lyra Drops ($188) which I bought on Black Friday and love!

Even better, this year BHLDN is joining in on the fun!



Their contest is being run a little differently from Anthropologie's. It's Instagram-only first off. To enter, Instagram a photo of the BHLDN item you'd like to win, and tag it with #BHLDNwishes and @BHLDN. Four winners will be chosen randomly! This contest closes on December 16, 2015.

If you know a future bride tell her about this contest! Heck I might enter this one myself, as I'm totally in love with these earrings. (These earrings too.)

Just a friendly reminder: This blog is not affiliated with Anthropologie. Effortless Anthropologie is in no way affiliated with either of these contests.

Good lucky, community members! Will you enter? I hope so -- and I can't wait to see who wins.

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, December 6, 2015


Although Anthropologie just had new markdowns on Friday, and home (and clothing!) markdowns the week before, word is that new home markdowns are on the way tomorrow. I don't follow the home side of Anthro as much as the apparel and accessories side but with holiday decor season in full swing I thought it would be fun to guess what home items might get marked down tomorrow!

On top of that, right now Anthropologie is offering an extra 30% off sale!!! Use the code XTRA30 at checkout.

What will be on sale tomorrow? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game to influence Anthropologie!

A Friday Surprise! New Sale is here, plus take an extra 30% off sale!

Friday, December 4, 2015



It's a Friday surprise! (That a tipster let us know about yesterday eve -- thanks Tipster!!!) Anthropologie's Sale has updated this morning with Fresh Cuts, PLUS sale is now an extra 30% off!!! Use the code XTRA30 at checkout.

If you had an eye on an Anthropologie coat or leather jacket, it's quite likely it was marked down this morning! Yesterday our tipster pointed out to me how shocked they were by the newness of some of these items marked down and I agree. Some of these items have been out less than a month! I believe Anthro is trying to get two things done: first, clear out its sale section both in-store and online. Secondly, drive people into stores to take a look at these new sale items (and then hopefully the new arrivals too). Will this strategy work on you?


Among the highlights from this morning's sale (all prices are before the extra 30% off):

Free People Haulin'

Thursday, December 3, 2015

The She's Got It Slip ($78), the clear -- and surprising -- winner of my recent Free People haul.

A couple of weeks ago, Free People sucked me in to perfection. I had a few items in my FP cart as I always do but they were somewhere down below a few other stores on my 'to buy' priority list. That is, until they launched a sweet one-night-only promo that propelled me into action. And then, in some sort of haze of post-order bliss I kept browsing around the site after the promo was over only to find more and more stuff that I wanted to buy.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is marketing at its best. Because of course seeing all the pretties convinced me to get my butt into the store and shift this month's spending budget around so I could buy some more lovely things from Free People.

So, what did I get for myself and as gifts? Ready to be tempted? Come on inside...

Anthropologie's 2015 Gift Guide is here

Wednesday, December 2, 2015


Oh hey, look what Anthropologie dropped today to brighten up our Wednesday! As hoped, it turns out the woeful December 2015 lookbook wasn't it for the month -- the December 2015 Gift Guide is here to enjoy.

Inside, what's getting circled and left open around the apartment for my guy to notice...

Nine new Anthropologie pretties I'm loving this morning

In need of this whole look. The Chiffon Hem Pullover ($98), Tais Neoprene Skirt ($328)


The wishlist additions never stop, even with gift-shopping season in full swing! This morning I noticed a few new pretties on Anthropologie's site that made me say, yes please. I'm hoping the Chiffon Hem Pullover ($98) will be a better version of last year's too-short chiffon-hem sweater...it certainly seems promising!

Other items that caught my eye include the Boiled Wool Mock-Neck Dress ($158) -- must try on; the delicate Lace Mockneck Tank ($298); the soft-looking Hoss Intropia Strappy Velvet Heels ($326); the face-framing Classique Threaded Earrings ($44) and the Morgana Layer Necklace ($54) in blue to pair with them; the festive Jura Necklace ($168) also gets a spot.

I recently covered a ton of new December arrivals here if you're hungry for more. What's new to your wishlist this morning?
