Anthropologie Duckie Rainboots found on Zappos, Not as Expected Though

11 Aug

So I finally found those Anthropologie Chooka rain flats I coveted back in March! (See previous post here.) They’re on Zappos for only $48! Alas, the size 7 was too big and I know size 6 would be too small :(. I’m a true 6 1/2 and never do well with full sizes. Also, the quality wasn’t as expected. I planned to use them for gardening and walking the dog in the rain. I was hoping for sturdy L.L. Bean quality but these are more for fashion and just look cute. I wanted to love these but didn’t work out that way. They had to be returned, otherwise I know in my heart I’d only use them maybe 20% of the time. Right now, I’m doing the Glam Save Style challenge where I purge my dated, unused clothing clutter, keep what gets the most wear and only buy quality items I plan to use 80% of the time. Anything not used at least 80% of the time gets the boot (no pun intended).

It doesn’t help too – the pictures really exaggerate what you want to believe in an online product. My fault though for not trying them on first. They didn’t have this product in the Anthro store near me to try on though. And the quality looked really good, but shame on me for not looking at advertising with a jaundiced eye and falling for the whole “Only 1 left in stock” in red caps for my size further enticing to buy the product. Lesson learned!

50% off Friday only!

24 Nov

A Happy Thanksgiving to all!  I’m looking forward to the Black Friday Sale.  I’m not one to wake up early for any retailer but I may make an exception for the Anthro store and check out their goods at 6am.  Better yet I’ll check out the Anthro site at 12AM and see what they’ve got!  Happy Shopping!

Anthro Finds $300 and Under

19 Nov

Anthro has some great markdowns on clothing and accessories to keep you warm and toasty! This Dipped Nougat Coat with cape-like silhouette got marked down from $428 to $300. This camel hat went from $138 to $80. I’m loving these half-off motorcycle boots ($130) for that rocker chic look or something to add edginess to floral dresses or flowy shirts.

$4 Kitchenware

9 Nov

It’s rare to find anything cheap at Anthropologie. For those times where I don’t want to leave the store empty handed but am short on cash, I head for the kitchen section or scour their sale section for marked down kitchenware. The Lotus bowl is one of my favorites. I have several of them and find them useful for organizing make-up and toiletries. I also have one at my entry table where I leave my keys. For those items I’ve left the store with but have no use for, I’d always held onto them for future gifts which were almost always a hit.$4 Finds from Anthro Home

Travel accessories for less

3 Nov

One could expect a lot of holiday travel this season. With traveling comes packing and personally I prefer to travel light. Rather than stock my luggage with bulky sweaters and jackets, I plan on wearing my heavier outfits, packing only the neutral basics and some accessories.  I’m excited that Anthro’s marked down some accessories.  What I love about accessories is that they take the least amount of luggage space.  I don’t mind having more of them to change out when creating different outfit options.  One day I could wear a necklace with a black or grey top, the next day I could swap it out for a scarf.  The yellow wallet could be used as a clutch rather than a wallet.  As for toiletries, no need to carry around a big perfume bottle when the solid perfume will do – and take up less room of course.

Anthropologie Sale

6 Sep

Anthropologie usually marks down their merchandise every Tuesday.  Being in the remote part of the ‘burbs, the nearest Anthro from where I live is about an hour away. (Wah-wah.) When I lived in NYC and near Boston there was usually one right near my home. Oh well. Anyway, thank goodness for the internet! What would we do without it. This month of September there’s free shipping provided I pay for one full price item which I could easily find in the kitchen or candle section.  I could probably get something for under $10 to use as a last minute gift for someone.  Anyway, if I were at a store and was able to try on everything, here are some of the things I’d look at first.

Sarah Jessica Parker Anthro Style

6 Sep

Get inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker‘s bright style for those formal or casual occasions. This Prabal Gurung dress is from the Fall 2011 collection and showcases a vivid black and white print with red accent trim near the elbows and waist. Steal this look for work or dinner with Anthropologie finds like this Odille sleeveless shift. Replace the black sash with a red one or simply pair it with the red Guinivere cardigan. Accessorize with faux black and white pearls and black peep-toe heels. For a dressed down look, opt for this print trapeze blouse with the cardigan and white trousers or blue jeans and comfy shoes from your closet.
