Take an extra 20% off Anthropologie sale!!


Anthropologie's giving us a treat for the weekend -- take an extra 20% off your sale purchaseUse the code EXTRAEXTRA at checkout This promotion is valid in stores and online.

Some of the online sections are pretty sparse, though depending on your store there might be tons more to find there. In NYC for instance the Rockefeller Center sale room is spilling over. Online your best bet might be the tees and tanks sale section...where plenty of spring-ready pretties await. And what's left online does tend to go fast during these types of promos so if there is something you want, I don't suggest waiting.

My picks from the current availability would be the Flared Jacquard Dress (now $112 after the extra 20% off), the Dotty Lace Peasant Blouse (now $48 after the extra 20% off), the Shimmer-Spot Henley (now $72 after the extra 20% off), the Kellen Crochet Pullover (now $32 after the extra 20% off), the Ribbed Scoopneck (now $24 after the extra 20% off), the Mara Tee (now $16 after the extra 20% off), the Leather Moto Jacket (now $208 after the extra 20% off) and the Dotted Mesh Tank (now $24 after the extra 20% off).

Feel free to use the comments to post popbacks!

Reviews: Bras I've loved recently from Natori, Skarlett Blue, Victoria's Secret, Calvin Klein and Gap

Natori's Feathers Front Close T-Back Bra ($66-$68) is so pretty and comes in lots of fun colors, like mint. 

About a month ago I started noticing that although the cups on my 34D bras still mostly fit fine, the bands have started to become too loose. Rather than visit a chain where I've found the measurements are often off I went to an independent store in NYC and discovered that yes I'm still a 32DD but now there are more bras than ever being made in my true size...so I don't have to settle for a bra that kinda fits anymore!

As I'm training for a triathlon in June I might go through 3 bras in a day -- one to work out in the morning, one for work, and one for my evening workout. So in the past few weeks I've tried on and purchased a ton of bras which I've been discussing in random comment threads around EA. I received a few emails asking if I could condense it all into a reviews post. Absolutely! Inside, what I've tried and what I've liked (nearly everything)...
