20 OFF

Kicking things off with a few back-logged outfits:

Wearing: Top-Anthropologie Descending Peplum Blouse, Belt-J.Crew, Shorts-Anthropologie G1 Basic Goods, Shoes-Crown Vintage, Earrings-Anthropologie, Necklace-Anthropologie Celadon-Shaped Necklace

Wearing: Skirt-Anthropologie Subway Stairs, Top-Anthropologie Red Delicious Blouse, Bracelet-BR, Shoes-Chie Mihara Nerito, Earrings- Anthropologie Zaftig Drops

Wearing: Anthropologie Lemon Liftoff Blouse, Anthropologie Trousered Bermudas, Belt-J.Crew, Shoes-BC Footwear, Earrings-Anthropologie

Anthro’s unheard-of 20% off all regularly priced clothes and accessories this past Saturday was a blast. I shopped while I ate scarfed a cupcake down with frosting 2 inches thick. That, my friends, is really all it takes to get me spendy.

I kid. It also takes a few returns to off-set the cost of my new-found wardrobe warriors which, thankfully, I had.

I felt strongly about showing up on Saturday and flexing my consumer card-holding muscle. Anthro’s moving in the right direction, having an actual thank-you-dear-card-holders event, don’tcha think? Anthro takes the 20% in the shorts and feeds us cupcakes! Nicely done! I appreciate you appreciating me, Anthro. Let’s hug and kiss and be friends forever, k?

So what did I snag?

Draped Shoulder Slub Top in Size Medium

Askew Ruffled Cardigan, size Small

Idoya Bib Necklace

Quadrivium Belt size Medium

Blue Mesa Sweater Skirt- took this home to play with and will reserve final judgement until then.

Shimmered Skinny Belt- Size small

The only other item I seriously debated over was this:

Rita Color-blocked Purse

Anyone seen this in person? I think it’s so delightful looking, vintage and modern all at once. It’s just seems small by the dimensions given online, from what I can tell. I’ll be holding my breath it makes it to sale in a few months I guess.

Can’t wait to hear what you all grabbed. I also had a VERY good source tell me the sale tomorrow will be good. Like, good-good. I made sure not to purchase any items on Saturday that would hit sale any time soon, and that I felt were decently priced as is, with the 20 off. So I’m hoping for one thing and one thing only.

Mistress Nanette. All Asymmetric and stuffs. Get in my closet!

well, okay…if this made it to sale too, I’d bite:

Devin Henley

Happy Sale hunting my friends.

P.S. Remember to please send me a photo of your own Analogous Color Scheme outfit! You have a LOOOOONG time to come up with one….Sept. 29th!

Pardon my own puddle of drool on the Anthro catwalk, but I can’t help myself. I am quite enjoying the new ladies of June rolling out, aren’t you? Though I still long to see Anthro put out some awesome knee-length skirts like those of yore, I am very encouraged by the new Anthro crop. Encouraged enough so that I have brought home 3 of these beauties above within the last 2 weeks. Care to take a stab at which ones?

And a sort of confessional here….I fell prey to another necklace hunt at Anthro.

Wearing: Pants-Anthropologie Patch Pocket Trousers, Top-BR Outlet, Cardi-J.Crew Jackie, Necklace- Anthropologie Sea Spikes, Shoes-J.Crew factory Cece Studded Ballet Flats in suede

This necklace is gorgeous, and longish for a bib-style necklace, a fact which makes my long neck rejoice.  Word of warning however….you have to look at several necklaces and grab the one that is unmarred. Cause if you don’t, you’ll live my frustrating tale: My store only had one left when I finally decided to buy, and it had a huge black “birthmark” on one of the shells. So I ordered online, hoping I’d get an unscathed one. No such luck. Then I persisted and purchased from a store, owing the kind SA who looked through the bunch for me and picked a winner.  (Thank you to my ever patient, amazing staff in San Antonio, TX and Kierland Commons Anthro in Scottsdale, AZ. My saga is over thanks to all of you.) I highly recommend this necklace, seashell abnormalities aside. It’s lovely, and different, and cool.

What are your thoughts on the new arrivals? Favorites?

I’m ever a listening Anthro ear.

xoxo Molly
