13. These Free People clogs are pretty much everything -- I want another color!


This post might be updated with more items as the weekend progresses...my mailbox is very busy at the moment. Some items have sold out before I could even mention them -- like these amazing suede pumps from Barneys that I got for a song ($71 instead of $295 -- alright!!) and these ultra-comfy fringe sandals via Free People, which I scored in the taupe shown in the FP Me photo gallery on the product page via a store charge/send. What items have you snagged on sale or promo recently? Which items did you decide were worth it at full price?

Anthropologie's got not one but TWO new promos this weekend!

The Candymint Halter Dress ($268), 20% off this weekend.

Anthropologie knows that with the weather warming up, people like me and you are doing some spring closet cleaning, assessing what clothing we own, and deciding we need some new pieces to spice up our wardrobe.

Kindly, they're helping out by offering 20% off all dresses this weekend! This promotion is valid in-store and online. This promotion is reflected at checkout online; no code required. Unfortunately neither the birthday discount nor the any other online discount code can be combined with this promotion online, community members who have tried have noted this.

My mind goes straight towards trying some online-only dresses. How nice would it be to take 20% off the Sunset Garden Maxi Dress ($158), the Despoina Silk Maxi Dress ($258, though I'm totally cheating because the Soho Anthropologie in NYC is stocking this), the beautiful Agnella Laced Sheath ($358), the Dainty Daisies Dress ($355), the Poplin Dropwaist Dress ($228), the Silverlined Sheath ($275, the dress I'm most likely to buy from this list though Lord & Taylor also has a cute version I'm debating), or the Liora Dress ($458) which I'm totally in love with?

Update: sizing note on the quickly selling out Silverlined Sheath ($275) -- runs small around the hips. If you're curvy like me, you'll need to size up 2 sizes! I took a 10 instead of my usual 6.

And if dresses have you feeling meh perhaps this will cheer you up...



Anthropologie is also offering 30% off all jewelry this weekend! It makes pretty pieces like the Daisied Jasper Drops ($128) a little easier to reach financially.

Anthro's been indulging in dainty delights in its jewelry section recently. I'm quite fond of triple strand necklaces -- the Tesoro Layered Necklace ($68), Astree Layered Necklace ($78), Halfshell Layered Necklace ($88), Zephyrine Layered Necklace ($98) and Miranda Layered Necklace ($278, gorgeous) all spring to mind.

Beyond necklaces I've also wishlisted the Pearled Chandelier Earrings ($148), the Rosebud Quartz Drops ($378), the Sparked Linear Drops ($118), the Nacre Zephyr Pendant Necklace ($68) and the Museu Bib Necklace ($68), all of which become more doable once 30% off is factored into the mix!

I'm poring over my cart now, deciding what to order. Will you take advantage of these fun new Anthropologie promotions too?
