Weekend Deals & Steals around the webby world

Friday, July 29, 2016

Anthropologie has several active promos right now, but Free Shipping ends today!


The weekend is here and thank god because I have been underwater and then some at work! While I try to wrap up the deadline on my latest project, here are some of my favorite deals around the webby world for this weekend...


Anthropologie // Take an extra 30% off Sale, 20% off Full-Price Shoes, and 20% off Select Home Goodies. No code required for those promos. Also, Free Shipping ENDS FRIDAY with the code STAYCOOL. // Picks: The Cameron Dress (now $100 + extra 30% off) was surprisingly flattering on; the Eyelet Embroidered Sheet Set (now $55-$248) is my favorite Anthropologie sheet set ever; I am in need of the Farylrobin Finn Micro Wedges (now $119) and the Lien.Do by Seychelles Cordoba Mini Wedges (now $119)!

Banana Republic // Take 30% off Full-Price Items with the code BREAK. Plus take an extra 50% off sale, no code required. // Picks: Insta-outfit -- pair the Mixed-Lace Tank ($68 + 30% off) with the Ruffle Flounce Skirt ($78 + 30% off) and the Jackie Heel ($138 + 30% off).

Bloomingdales // Take 20-70% off Select Home Goods, FRIDAY ONLY. This sale is kind of ridiculously good. Also, clearance is now up to 80% off! // Picks: This Delsey 29" travel rolly bag is an unbelievable $135 (from $400!); get your Nespresso on for $180 (down from $440!) or your Keurig for $80 (was $200!).

J.Crew // Take an extra 50% off Final Sale items. Use the code SALEONSALE. // Picks: This dress has such a beautiful, summery print; these slingback pumps make any outfit insta-cute; this skirt fits fabulously but runs super small -- go two sizes up for skirt success.

J.Crew Factory // Take up to 60% off Everything, no code required. PLUS get an extra 50% off Clearance with the code SHOPNOW. // Picks: These fringed sandals are so great, I don't understand how they're still in stock; this necklace is a great layering piece in either color; the black flower print on this scoopneck is ultra-flattering and makes it versatile enough to go with a skirt, shorts or pants of any color.

LOFT // Take 40% off Select Tops & Sweaters, and an extra 50% off Sale. No code required. // Picks: My favorite print of their peplum shell; open cardigans for everyone; I loooove this tank especially on super sale!

Neiman Marcus // Get a $50 Gift Card when you buy $200+ online and pick up in-store. Through Saturday only. // Picks: As usual I'm in love with Derek Lam 10 Crosby, so I'd probably buy something like the Sleeveless Floral Silk Tank Dress ($595), the Long-Sleeve Smocked V-Neck Dress ($595), the Sleeveless Printed Silk Tiered Mini Dress ($595), the Cross-Front Tassel Sweater ($325) or the Long-Sleeve Lace-up Swing Dress ($595) and then use the $50 gift card towards one of those items or maybe this whole look!

Nordstrom // Anniversary Sale time, of course! // Picks: Check out this post, this one, or this one.

Saks Fifth Ave // Take up to 75% off Clearance. // Picks: This adorable Loeffler Randall Fringed Leather Tab Clutch (now $90) is perfection; the Alexander Wang Cata Jute & Leather Tilt-Wedge Sandals (now $149) are too jute (sorry, had to say it!); a big selection of pants and jeans from the likes of AG, J Brand and Paige are super marked down too.



Feel free to use this post to discuss any shopping-related goings on this weekend.



Get Free Shipping at Anthropologie with NO MINIMUM!!

Tuesday, July 26, 2016


Anthropologie has brought back Free Shipping!! And this time, there is no order minimum. Use the code STAYCOOL at checkout.

Could this be time to take another look at sale, where the extra 30% off promo continues? Some of my closet faves like the Split-Neck Swing Tank (now $70 + extra 30% off), Embroidered Lace-Up Tank (now $50 + extra 30% off) and the Lace Edge Tank (now $40 + extra 30% off) are still available.

Or maybe it's new arrivals that you crave! I purchased the new color of the Fringed Stripe Tunic Dress ($148) last week and adore it! I went up to an 8 in this dress. I'm wearing it with the Raphaella Booz Woven Heels (now $119) which are also on promo and one of my most versatile buys this summer, and the Chevelle Earrings ($228).

What might you use Free Shipping for?

Picks from the public debut of Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale!!

Friday, July 22, 2016


It's finally here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to the public for shopping, and lots of pretty stuff awaits. I have to admit that this year I shopped more for my guy than I did for myself -- I did get a few nice things for myself though!

In the spirit of pretty, here are some outfits that include Anniversary Sale items that caught my eye. The dress above, the Eileen Fisher Bateau Neck Cap Sleeve Dress (now $125/after sale $188) in particular has multiple cute stylings!

Inside, the looks...

**Note: some of the items from these outfits may be sold out right now, but they almost always pop back before the end of the sale!!


Take 20% off full-price Anthropologie all weekend long!!


Anthropologie's non-stop promotion wheel keeps on turning. This time the wheel has stopped on a particularly good deal: this weekend, take 20% off full-price Anthropologie items! I went into the Rockefeller Center Anthropologie briefly yesterday and felt a gut instinct to hold off on shopping til today -- so glad I waited.

I plan to use this promo to buy the Lien.Do by Seychelles Cordoba Mini Wedges ($148 + 20% off), the new color of the Fringed Stripe Tunic Dress ($148) and hopefully the Cheshire Dress ($158) too if I can find it in-store; online store inventory checks seem to be turned off at the moment.

This promo is valid both in-store and online, and does have an asterisk that some exclusions apply -- I'm guessing BHLDN, for example, is not included.

The extra 30% off sale promo is also still running!

Also, entirely OT but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to the public to shop! I'll have a post later today with some more favorites from that awesome sale.

Free Shipping goes away after today at Anthropologie...

Thursday, July 21, 2016


Attention Free Shipping demanders: today is your last day to place an order with Anthropologie and receive Free Shipping on orders of $150+!!

Perhaps its time to take advantage of one of the many promos Anthro is running, like 20% off full price shoes? Perhaps an online-only pair like the Cubanas Stela Wedges (now $143) is in your future? Or maybe an online-only adornment like the Arlandes Earrings ($128), which remind me of hot air balloons in much more delicate form? A belt or scarf, hmm? Check out all the online exclusive accessories here. Or maybe beauty is more your thing, and it's time to check out one of those TenOverTen nail polishes your NYC, LA or Austin friends are always talking about from their nail salons to get you over the $150 threshold? (I'm a big fan of the Prince color myself.)

It could be time to take advantage of the big 20% off select bedding, furniture and more home goodies promo. Could an Octopus Garden Shower Curtain (now $119) be in your future? And a Majorcan Garden Pillow (now $71)? Or would it be something bigger, like the Epoque Bureau (now $719)? Remember that all furniture has a flat $150 delivery fee and is not eligible for free shipping. The 20% off helps greatly!

Or if you are a teacher and have a valid school or teacher ID, you can take 15% off your full price purchase through September 12! And take advantage of Free Shipping today too, on a pretty school outfit like the Windflower Blouse ($88) worn with the Catteau Pencil Skirt ($128), or the Embroidered Sienna Top ($88) paired with the Pilcro Chino Skirt ($78) or the Apoise Flutter Top ($298) together with the Mother Back-Slit Pencil Skirt ($218)?

Maybe it is something else still that gets your Free Shipping delight! What will it be for you?

Checking in with...Banana Republic

Looking to add some extra pretty to your summer wardrobe? 
Banana Republic has some serious deals right now. Above, the Pom-Pom Cascade Vee Top (now $58).

Banana Republic has been hit and miss for me lately (mostly miss, sadly) but even with their fit struggles and weird material choices, I have found some extra pretty delights to add softness to my closet where needed!

Take the Pom-Pom Cascade Vee Top (now $58, I took a medium) above. This top is lightweight and the ruffles move beautifully in the summer breeze. It may be hard to see in the photos online, but the ruffles have tiny little bead 'pom-poms' running down them, a cute design detail that invites people to get close to see them. This top comes in the beige color above (called cocoon) as well as navy. I bought this cocoon color and wear it a variety of ways -- with this Button-Front Canvas Skirt (now $35, I took a 12) or this Ruffle Flounce Skirt (now $48, I took a 12 and went for the tall version which hits closer to my knees) and these Emilia Heeled Sandals ($128, I took a 9) in green, or I wear them over cropped white pants -- my current favorite are these Pilcros from Anthropologie (I took a 30) -- with cute sandal heels (I wear a 9).

Right now there is a special on lots of summer items, up to 40% off via this page. And their summer sale is offering some deliciously low prices on items we can wear now and later. Plus if you're a Banana Republic cardholder you can take 15% off your order at the moment (code: BRCARD)! Inside, some of my recent successes that are on sale or promo right now...

Get first dibs on Anthropologie's August new arrivals

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Fall is in the air at retailers including Anthro, where you can pre-shop August for the next 48 hours!
Featuring the Augusta Top ($88).


Excited for August, and perhaps Fall too? Anthropologie certainly is! So much so that it has unveiled its August First Dibs shopping page for Anthro loyalty program members. Best news? The shoes on the page are included in the current 20% off full-price shoes promo too.

From the first dibs page, most intriguing to me are the Augusta Top ($88) shown in the photo at the top of this post, the Windflower Blouse ($88), Marcela Ankle Strap Heels ($127 on promo), the Cowled Sweater Tank ($98) though I wish it didn't have that inverted v detail in the back, it makes things so boxy and unflattering Anthro!!!, and the Mori Cardigan ($98).

What are your favorites? Don't forget about Free Shipping on orders of $150+! See all the First Dibs items here.

And now your Anthro order of $150+ ships FREE! Plus, killer promos at Madewell & J.Crew


If yesterday's onslaught of Anthropologie promos wasn't quite enough for you, perhaps this will make your shopping day: Free Shipping is back at Anthro on orders of $150+! If you want to try out online exclusives like the Cloverdale Mini Skirt ($138) or the Elsinora Lace Tank ($78) or the Island-Hopper Dress ($268) or the Ormanda Sheath ($168), now is your chance!

Also this morning, big sale news at two of my other favorite retailers. Starting today take an extra 40% off sale at J.Crew (use the code SUMMER) and take an extra 40% off sale at Madewell (use the code EXTRA40)!! Some picks from these sales include the Arrowstack Necklace (now $45 + extra 40% off), the Denim Button-Front Skirt in pure white (now $70 + extra 40% off), the Carrie Dress in Stripe (now $130 + extra 40% off), the Bow-Shouldered Top in oversized Gingham (now $60 + extra 40% off) and the Eyelet Overlay Dress (now $100 + extra 40% off, which I own and LOOOOOOOVE).

Happy Sale/Promo Hunting, everyone!
