Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Monday, October 24, 2016

Seems about time for more Anthropologie Sale, doesn't it? We don't know for sure if markdowns are on the way tomorrow or not, but either way let's play the Sale Guessing Game because I think our chances are pretty good!

Sundance Catalog's Holiday Looks are sure to make any Anthro fan nostalgic...and excited!

Frippery? Horses? Puppies? Sundance Catalog sure knows how to tap an Anthro lover's heart.
Coat | Gloves | Dress | Belt | Boots

As evb wondered the other day in another post, did Sundance Catalog steal Anthropologie's old stylist? I mean this as the highest compliment possible because looking through Sundance's latest catalogue I'm getting that old rush of "ooohs" and "aahs!" that I used to get dog-earing every page of an Anthro lookbook.

Sundance, I think I love you. Why, inside...

On the final day of Anthro Day weekend, more picks!

Sunday, October 23, 2016

Uncovering a few more goodies for Anthro Day weekend, like the Mixed-Stripe Wool Cardigan ($148).

Today is the final day of Anthro Day weekend! Now through midnight you can take 20% off your full-price order with the code ADAY or in-store purchase. I've gone through the website and was reminded of some favorites and recent likes I haven't mentioned.

The Mixed-Stripe Wool Cardigan ($148, above) is certainly on that list. This pretty wool wrap-cardigan is so warm (but definitely will make you itch if you have wool allergies). I love the cedar color shown above. It runs large, so be sure to size down. I'm wearing it over the Lace-Line Tee ($68, size down) in ivory with the Citizens of Humanity Rocket High-Rise Jeans ($198, size up if curvy), the Clarity Layered Necklace ($68), Everitt Posts ($32) and the Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Jordana Boots ($158).

Inside, more picks, focusing on neutrals, jewel tones and complimenting accessories.

Take 20% off your Anthropologie purchase today!!

Friday, October 21, 2016

Anthropologie has thrown us a bone for the weekend -- today is Anthro Day which means you get 20% off your full-price purchase, in-store or online! Use the code ADAY at checkout. Although this promo is called Anthro 'Day', I have to guess and hope that it's lasting all weekend.

This promo likely means PAs for me as I just made a purchase at the Boulder Anthropologie earlier this week...hopefully it's one of the friendlier stores when it comes to promotional PAs! The idea of driving to Denver just for a PA...well, now I know how you car commuters feel. 

Inside, picks!

My new favorite secret retailer for basics and trends...

Coat (size down) | Sweater | Pants (TTS) | Shoes (TTS) | Bag

Although I've built up a closet of beautiful, quality staples I love (not easy in the current market of poor materials!), I have to admit that each season nothing pleases me quite so much as adding several new looks to my repertoire. It's a given that come a new quarter I'll be purging 6 or 7 looks and looking for new pieces to replace them.

Unfortunately, my favorite stores have not been coming through for me on this front for several seasons now. While I find a piece to love here or there, my creative desires to express myself in new ways via my clothing are going unfulfilled. So I'm hunting -- ever hunting -- for new stores to help me look good without breaking bank.

As the quality of material and workmanship has gone down at nearly every level, from luxury to midrange, all of a sudden discount retailers are looking ever-more reasonable to me. It's in this mindset that I've recently discovered JustFab, and fallen in love! While you certainly won't find handmade or cashmere created from the stalls of the Grand Bazaar you will find cute outfits at very accessible prices, and may even surprise yourself (as I have!) by finding multi-season keepers.

This look above is a perfect example. While shown in a stunning red here, the Brushed Drape Front Coat ($76/$56 VIP) also comes in more classic options like black and grey. Every product page has at least one outfit idea (this one has three!) and plenty of reviews from various body types to guide on sizing. From what I can see JustFab publishes both positive and negative reviews, which for example helped me figure out that for the Monic ($60/$40 VIP) shoes shown in the look above, I needed to purchase them a half-size larger so I could put a comfort insert inside (I love these) to help them be all-day wearable.

Inside, some of my favorite looks for work and play from JustFab, which stocks regular sizes, plus sizes, and a huge selection of wide calf boots too!
