It's an early weekend promo treat from Anthropologie!

Thursday, February 25, 2016


No big surprise here -- the day after major popbacks appeared in the sale section, Anthropologie is letting us take an extra 30% off all sale clothing and accessory itemsUse the code XTRA30 at checkout.

While I was away in Mexico there was a round of sale cuts, and I'm hungry to do a bit of markdown shopping! Now is a great time to pick up items like the Windowpane Car Coat (now $200, all prices before the extra 30% off) for these last days of winter; the Snap-Neck Pullover (now $50, review) which I love oh so very much; these AG Legging Jeans (now $120) or these Stevies (now $120); this soft and wonderful Pernette Henley (now $30) or the solid version, the Sava Henley (now $30).

What do you plan to purchase during this lovely promo?

Checking in with my favorite shopping secret weapon

Wednesday, February 24, 2016


It's time to check in with my favorite secret shopping weapon, J.Crew Factory. As regular J.Crew is starting to make a lovely turnaround (more on them soon), the Factory store continues to be a great source of classic workwear for me in an office where I no longer have to wear high-fashion dresses/suits, yet don't want to wear jeans everyday either.

Right now J.Crew Factory is running a solid deal, 30% off your entire purchase using the code HOWNICE. Yes, it is nice! (Though there are some exclusions, that's not as nice.) Let's take a look at some of my favorite recent outfits on the website -- you can check out all their latest looks here -- and talk about some items I love.

Beginning with the look above, which is an ideal work look for me. I absolutely adore the pattern play here with the larger plaid grid up to up and the cute pencil skirt grid below, all set off with a pop of blue from the shoes. Actually J.Crew Factory has a bunch of cute shoes right now -- in addition to these I'm also loving these gingham flats, these suede flats in the pale mint color, and these bowed gingham pumps (three words that belong together at all times, right?). I found all three pairs to run true to size, a 9 for me.

What else am I loving? Lots more cute outfit ideas, inside...

What's landed on my Anthropologie wishlist this week...

Spring lives in the Alicante Dress ($268).

Was Anthropologie waiting for me to go on vacation before releasing a whole onslaught of new pretties? As I'm updating my wishlist, all I see are things I want. Lots and lots of them! Some of my latest cravings have a feeling of the familiar -- like the Alicante Dress ($268) above, which reminds me of my beloved Sugared Ruby Sheath. Some of my newest desires are intriguingly different.

Inside, my wishlist's latest...

The toll of free shipping on retail giants (via the WSJ)

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

photo: Bloomberg News via the Wall Street Journal


The Wall Street Journal ran a fascinating story yesterday about Nordstrom and the costs of offering free shipping, flexible item pickup and boosting online sales. I thought this would be good fodder for a post here since Anthropologie's lack of permanent free shipping is a near-constant topic of discussion.

Of course the WSJ serves the business audience rather than the consumer crowd so the article is spun as Nordstrom is losing potential profits (expenses rose 10% last year while profits were down 17% to $600 million) by offering these customer-friendly policies.

The article is behind a paywall so here are some of the highlights...

"Nordstrom Inc. says it is struggling to control the high costs of competing for online sales.

The Seattle-based retailer has gained market share by offering more-generous free shipping, in-store pickup for online orders and other services than many of its rivals. But the cost of boosting online sales has cut into profits, the company said last week when it reported full-year earnings. For the year ending in January, Nordstrom’s profits dropped 17% to $600 million, while expenses rose 10%.

Nordstrom’s results underscore how retailers haven’t figured out how to replicate online the profits generated in brick-and-mortar stores. Many companies are investing in technology and their distribution networks to seamlessly get merchandise to customers whether they order online or in-store.

This strategy, known as omni-channel, is at the center of the retail industry’s efforts to fend off competition from Amazon.com Inc. But it’s a costly tactic to pursue, and increased sales often come at the expense of profits."


And a bit further down,

"The cost of pursuing online sales goes beyond the price of delivering a package or maintaining a website, and many companies struggle to measure their total e-commerce expense. For example, marketing and the cost of returns can add to the overall expense, analysts say.

You have to look at it in its entirety … you have to understand all of that true cost to serve—it’s the marketing, the selling, the website development, it’s the returns, it’s everything,” said Burt White, vice president of industry supply chains at consulting firm Chainalytics."


The article goes on to talk about how inventory levels were higher than expected, and that Nordstrom hopes that better inventory controls will help to shore up profits in future quarters. You can read the entire article here if you are a WSJ subscriber.

I love how this article highlights something that consumers often don't think about in the price discussion, something I bring up often in the community discussions we have about pricing. Clothing prices are not set to cover just the cost of the garment, nor is it singularly about making a profit. The price of each piece of clothing is set to cover the cost of making the garment, paying the designers and buyers; covering the cost of the logistics of stocking the item, picking it, packing it and shipping it; handling the marketing of the item or collection; the copywriters, website design teams and technologists; the social media team and promoters; the admin people who keep the company operating; and of course a little bit for the exec team as well; plus the logistical fees like building rents or taxes where the company is located, electricity, etc. The list goes on and on.

Add it up, and you might be putting your money towards the salaries of 50+ people, just by buying a single item. Think that's unfair? I don't. It works this way with every item you buy, from a meal at a restaurant to a new TV or gadget to a book to ride in a taxi.

That's more the periphery of what this article is about though it's the most fascinating piece to me. Really, this article is about how companies are undercutting their profits by offering consumer-friendly practices as a means to get the sale. Right now, Nordstrom and many of its ilk are choosing to sacrifice $5 to $15 per sale (and that's just a guess number) to get customers to buy from them at all. They are losing potential profit on every sale so that costumers will continue buying from them. Forget loyalty...in the era of savvy online shopping, this about winning the wallet. Investors and analysts watch this stuff closely. They punish companies in the markets that don't fully attain these coups -- shipping fees, return fees, concierge fees and the like.

Then you have companies like Anthropologie, who are playing for the long haul. While sister companies Urban Outfitters (which is struggling mightily right now) and Free People (who is doing gangbusters) offer Free Shipping regularly if not all the time, Anthropologie continues to rarely offer this perk. Returns of online purchases by mail are not free at Anthropologie. You and I may think of this as profit centers for Anthropologie, but analysts and investors think of shipping fees and return fees as the cost of doing business.

So which is it? I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Reviews: Amelia Dress, Wrapped Stripe Column Dress, Colorblock Shift Dress, Picotage Sheath, Arcata Patchwork Dress, Maia Crochet Tunic

Monday, February 22, 2016

Trying on some Anthropologie dress delights, including the Wrapped Stripe Column Dress ($148).

Dress season has kicked off at Anthropologie and my local NYC stores are stocked to the gills with frock upon frock. It was hard to choose just a few to try on...so I tried on as many as I could squeeze in during a work lunch break!

Here's the first part...

First look at Anthropologie's March 2016 lookbook :: The Art of a Dress

Sunday, February 21, 2016


Hola, community! I've touched back down in NYC after a romantic (and much-needed) vacation in Cozumel with my guy. In my frantic pre-trip rush I stupidly scheduled a bunch of posts to run this week post-return instead of last week when they were supposed to run so my apologies for the lack of content while I was gone. This week will surely make up for it. I even have reviews!!

Before I left town I had a call with the Anthro Home Office and learned about a bunch of exciting things coming down the pipeline. This blog is not an official channel of Anthropologie but they do partner with me often which I'm grateful for; I think we strike an excellent balance between EA being independent and also teaming up with Anthro for the benefit of all.

Anyway, one of the super exciting things they told me about is already here! After a non-existent January catalogue (still bitter, Anthro) and a lackluster February book, March's catalogue (which they are now calling journals, mmk?) is exclusively devoted to dresses. Earlier this weekend Anthropologie sent out a pre-shop page to Anthro members which is still active. There is also a free shipping promo that ends today. Get FREE SHIPPING on orders of $150+ -- last day is todayUse the code FS150 at checkout!

From the preshop page I am loving the South Shore Dress ($138) in its newest colorway, the Embroidered Bellflower Dress ($228) and the Aveline Lace Dress ($158). You may have already talked about this but which dress are you loving?

We'll use this post as the Sale Guessing Game too -- I have about 500 emails to go through so it's possible some tips are in there. If you emailed me while I was away please give me another 72 hours to respond to you. Missed you all!

The weekend in-store community post

Saturday, February 13, 2016


I have noticed a lot of community members sharing in-store deals and spots in the comments of various posts. Inspired by the weekly Seek & Find posts started by the lovely Alexis over at J.Crew Aficionada, I think now is a good time to start a similar weekly post here.

Free People is getting in the Presidents' Day Weekend Spirit too!

Friday, February 12, 2016


Ahh, Free People knows how to send along a good deal! Now through Monday February 15th, take an extra 25% off their sale, both in-store and online. This is a great time to pick up some of those last days of winter goodies...or some spring stuff!

Picks? Yes, I have quite a few! Firstly as you're reading this post I'm probably wearing my taupe Brentwood Fringe Heels (now $100, all prices in this post are before the extra 25% off) around Cozumel on vacation with my guy. I love these sandals so much! And perhaps I'm also wearing my Fitted With Daisies Dress (now $70) too. I took a 39 in the sandals (I'm a 9) and a 6 in the dress, my usual size.

Some other items I own (though not in the sale colors) include the She's Got It Slip (now $50), which I sized up to a large in; the similar Daydream Bodycon Slip (now $70); the Fray II Pointelle Over the Knee Sock (now $20) and the Royal Rush Wrap Boot (now $300) which I took a 40 in. That's my usual Euro shoe size; I'm a 9 in USA sizing.

A couple of items I don't own that caught my eye for this promo include the Drenched in Sequins Mini Dress (now $100) which would be perfect for holiday parties later this year (I know, I know I'm thinking way ahead) and the Border Print Dropwaist Tunic (now $100).

Will you pick anything up during this promo? Feel free to use this post for open Anthropologie discussion as well -- don't forget they are running an extra 40% off sale promoUse the code EXTRA40 at checkout. Details here.

Good news and better news: Anthropologie's SALE is on major sale!

Thursday, February 11, 2016



Thank the presidents of years past for this one: this weekend, Anthropologie's sale items are an extra 40% offUse the code EXTRA40 at checkout. There are also a few new sale items this morning in the Fresh Cuts section. And there have been some good popbacks over the last few days so be sure to check your wishlists too.

What are you looking to pick up during this promo? This one's valid both in-store and online.

Several other stores are having great promos this weekend too, including:
-- Banana Republic (40% off with the code BRFIT). I'm loving these flats! More on BR Sunday.
-- J.Crew (25% off sweaters, cardigans, button-ups, T-shirts, tunics and more with the code SHOPNOW). Oh hello stripey fun long sleeve tee. Their sale is also an extra 40% off (final sale though). More on J.Crew next week.

Happy Home Sale Hunting!!

Distracting myself from snow with these Anthropologie accessory delights

Friday, February 5, 2016

Come to mama! Lien.Do's Morelia Heels ($140).

It's a beautiful scene of wet, white snow stuck to everything in sight this morning in NYC. Since I missed the blizzard my birthday weekend, this is such a delight to me! Safely indoors after a romp with Cinnamon in the snow I'm poring over more of Anthropologie's site, catching up on all the new goodies I've missed while I was in Costa Rica. This morning the newest accessories have grabbed me -- so many pretty things!

Let's pretend like it's 80 degrees out right now and discuss what we'd wear on our digits and toes, shall we?

Anthropologie's tiny, postcard-sized February 2016 catalogue

Thursday, February 4, 2016


Check your mailboxes, and maybe double-check them, because if you're not on the lookout for it you could easily miss Anthropologie's February 2016 lookbook. This is no 100-page book. Instead, its form factor is more like a postcard that unfolds into a flipbook -- 6 pages, front and back to be exact. Hardly the catalogues of yore we're used to...



...the catalogue is about 3/4 the size of my iPad mini, and printed on stiff photo paper. It's adorable but doesn't exactly feel like a catalogue to me...



...and inside, well, there's a few cute looks but not much to see. Less than 8 pages of clothing, a two-page spread devoted to home...one page to a bag.

I get it, it's winter, and unless you're a winter baby like me you're probably hibernating. But come on! We're so eager to buy pretty transitional clothing. I guess Anthro decided a tease was the way to go this. But hey, at least you February Aquarians and Pisceans get a catalogue. Last month all we early Water Bearers and late Capricorns got was notta. Nothing at all!

More on the outfits from the lookbook in this post.

10 new Anthropologie dresses I'm loving

Come fly away with me to Mexico! The South Shore Dress ($138) and Seychelles Cassiopeia Sandals ($100).

This week is my first look at Anthropologie's new arrivals since mid-last month, before my trip to Costa Rica. Perhaps it's the locale I just came home from or maybe it's just that Spring is on my mind, but I am seeing lots of warm weather goodies that should have a home in my closet.

Today, let's discuss some of the latest Anthro dresses that I'm on a mission to try on (and yes, review!)...

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Monday, February 1, 2016


Word from our community tipsters is that Anthropologie plans to welcome February with new sale tomorrow! What will be marked down -- clothing? Home? Accessories? Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and wonder together....

Eye Candy: Anthropologie February 2016 catalogue

and Cava Cuff ($48) welcome us to February!

Hello! I'm back from my work retreat in warm and beautiful Costa Rica to the remnants of a huge NYC blizzard and feeling great on both counts! I'm getting back into the Anthropologie swing of things for a couple of weeks before another trip takes me away again. And what better to come home to than pretty new arrivals? Inside, some preview photos from the soon-to-be-released February 2016 Anthropologie lookbook.

If you've sent me an email over the last two weeks it may be a few days yet before I get back to you...though from the emails on top of my inbox it looks as though there may be a sale tomorrow...? (Thanks tipsters!) So two things on tap today -- this preview post and the Sale Guessing Game this afternoon.
