UPDATED: Anthropologie's SALE begins a night early online!!



Following its trend of the last few go-rounds, Anthropologie's markdowns began appearing last night on its website! The Fresh Cuts page has updated this morning with tons of new markdowns, including most of the summer holdouts. The extra 30% off sale promotion is still running too! Use the the code EXTRA30 at checkoutThat's pretty wonderful of Anthropologie, wouldn't you say?

Inside, lots and lots of sale delights!

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


Doot doot-doot doot doot! Breaking news from tipsterville, where multiple well-placed little blue birdies tell me fresh markdowns are on the way tomorrow for Labor Day weekend here in the USA! Does this mean they'll show up tonight online as the last few markdown rounds have? Will the extra 30% off sale promotion still be in effect? Use the code EXTRA30 checkout if it is.

Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!

Upping our cardigan game

I can't wait to be hugged by the beautiful cardigans I'm seeing for Fall 2015.
Among my favorites is this Cirro Cardigan ($138).

Cardigans are certainly nothing new -- most of us have probably been wearing them since we were schoolchildren, if not earlier. But what is new is the longer silhouettes I've noticed more and more over the last couple of years; the transformation of cardigan from waist-length sweater alternative to combination sweater-coat-cocoon.

For Fall 2015 cardigans are getting even longer in some cases and I am totally ready to embrace this look. Let's talk about some of my favorites out there in shopping paradise, and how I'll be styling them, and how you'll be styling them!

Anthropologie's making the most of my favorite kind of print for Fall!

Totally digging the vibe of the Brocade Blossom Mini Dress ($448).

Although I mostly abide by the New York City unstated dress code of black, white, grey and...umm...more black, there is a ruffle-flower-color lover inside of me that's always just waiting to burst out! As I mentioned this morning J.Crew is drawing me in with its ruffle-adorned workwear (take note please, dear Anthro).

Meanwhile, it looks as though Anthropologie is nailing it with flowers, florals and abstract interpretations of gardens for Fall 2015. I've got a lot of favorites at the moment -- too many to actually list out, but inside are some of the items I'm really drooling over. And I'd love to hear your favorites too!

Working my workwear magic at a surprising store...

A pretty pink tweed dress, a tonal purse and leopard pumps. At the 5th Ave (NYC) store.
J.Crew, you understand me.

Every season there's one store that captures my mind and usually my wallet too. While I'm waiting for Anthropologie to rediscover its work-classics-with-a-twist magic, surprisingly it looks like J.Crew is here to fill in the workwear gap! The latter has been such a miss with me the last few seasons, with a few items appealing to me at most, that this sudden return to form is a lovely and somewhat intoxicating revelation. In terms of clothing anyway.

Inside, trying on a few of the delights I found in-store plus my work wishlist...

Playing the Sale Guessing Game


Might there be new sale cuts on the way tomorrow? We just had a few additions on Thursday, when the extra 30% off sale promotion launched. Use the code EXTRA30 checkout. Even with those new cuts there's still so much summer stuff at full price, I think more cuts are on the way sometime this week. Tomorrow? Maybe?

It might be for naught tonight, but let's play the Sale Guessing Game and find out!
