Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Sunday, May 1, 2016

Anthropologie's been holding out on markdowns these last couple of weeks and we Anthro lovers aren't going to take it anymore! We're ready for a sale and we won't sit here silently and wait. Instead, we'll play the Sale Guessing Game...

Eye Candy: Warm Weather Outfit Inspiration from Nordstrom

Saturday, April 30, 2016

Spring layering perfection -- this outfit is fantastic! I'd add a long pendant necklace like this one.

Nordstrom has unveiled some new spring outfits, and they've really outdone themselves with this set! Occasionally I'll see a group of outfits that truly speaks to me and this is one of those sets. This model above in particular has amazing charisma and personality -- her spirit makes me want to buy these clothes, all of them! I didn't know I needed a $600 watch but damn...the whole look is so good on the model so maybe on me...nicely done, Nordstrom!

Inside, more of the looks that are tantalizing me right now...

Weekend Deals & Steals around the webby world

Friday, April 29, 2016

It's another promo-filled weekend around the webby shopping world -- below are a few of my favorite deals. Feel free to share more deals in the comments, and use this as an open thread for all things Anthropologie!

Anthropologie // Take 20% off regular price jeans, prices as marked, and take an extra 25% off sale, no code required (discount applies in cart). // Picks: See this post.

Banana Republic // Take 40% off regular price apparel with the code BRSAVE. // Picks: This floral pintuck maxi dress is draw-droppingly gorgeous; this pencil skirt could be the beginning of many summer work outfits; ahhhh a lightweight 100% merino wool cardigan. Nice to see the classics coming back!

Bloomingdales // It's a shoe sale! A tiered shoe sale! Take 15% off shoe purchases of $150-$249.99; 20% off shoe purchases of $250-$499.99, or take 25% off shoe purchases of $500+. // Picks: This lace-up Dolce Vita sandal looks airy and comfortable for summer; this Tory Burch wedge is stylish and cute and feels like walking in flats; love the mix of snake and leather on this low-block heel from Sam Edelman (it also comes in leather only); I am positively drooling over this shoe!

Boden // Take 20% off your order Friday & Saturday only. // Picks: This top is super cute on but runs large (I took a 4 instead of my usual size 6); I'm a big fan of this knee-length a-line skirt too; this dress may be a little low-cut for work, but it's ideal for date night or the weekend.

J.Crew // Take an extra 40% off sale, and 30% off everything else with the code SCORE at checkout, through Friday eve only. // Picks: I have completely fallen in love with these metallic d'orsay pumps, this work-ready dress is quickly selling out because it fits like a dream and is classically chic; this necklace would go great with the dress I just linked to!

J.Crew Factory // Take 40-50% off warm weather must-haves, prices as marked. // Picks: This laser-cut shift is ready to work or party, isn't the cerulean blue especially pretty? One of my favorite dresses from last year comes to factory at an unbeatable price in all cotton -- this one is a summer staple for me. These striped shorts are very flattering on, the print on these shorts are too cute!

LOFT // Take 50% off Spring goodies, no code needed. Or take 60% off sale, no code needed. // Picks: All ruffles all the time, shall we? This ruffled henley is understated as far as ruffles go, and comes in a cute print too. I also like this fringed top a lot, I wish it came in white too. I'm totally in love with these adorable scalloped shorts (see them on me here)!

A new Anthropologie promo is here: 20% off jeans + denim shorts

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

The Paige Jimmy Jimmy Denim Roll-Up Shorts (now $104) are on promo,
and the cute top is on sale with an extra 25% off! 

Not ones to let a weekend slide by without a promo these days, Anthropologie is dropping another tantalizing promo in front of our eyes -- all jeans and denim shorts are now 20% off, no code required. Chambray is not included, nor are denim dresses. (Darn.)

This promotion is valid in-store and online through Sunday evening.

Besides the Paige Jimmy Jimmy Denim Roll-Up Shorts (now $104) at the top of this post, my wishlist also includes the AG Stevie Cuff Jeans (now $135) which seem like the ideal white jean (they are featured in two catalogue looks from this morning's post) with the 7 For All Mankind Braided High-Rise Flare Jeans (now $152) not too far behind, though I wish the latter also came in a straight leg. The Paige Jimmy Jimmy Jeans (now $172) are a good destructed pair, and if color is more your speed the Pilcro Stet Side-Slit Jeans (now $71) are a fantastic option -- though they stretch out nearly a size as you wear them.

Any upcoming full price promos are going to be an equal or lesser percentage to this one, so if you're looking at jeans or jean shorts now is a great time to buy them from Anthropologie. Will you take advantage of this promo?

Eye Candy: Anthropologie May 2016 Journal

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Anthropologie's May 2016 catalogue takes us away to Morocco for Springy delights.
Shown here: the Paleta Shirtdress ($158), ett:twa Tauno Sunglasses ($58) 
and Cubanas Peep-Toe Espadrilles ($135).

The May 2016 catalogue is here and it is a delight! From the clothes which are making my wishlist overflow to major proportions to the beautiful backdrops, this is one of the better catalogues Anthropologie has come out with in some time. (Though there is a serious lack of diversity which continues to disappointingly plague these lookbooks.)

Inside, some of my favorite photos from the journal -- or you can see the whole thing here for yourself along with a cute video Anthropologie made on their Moroccan escape.
