A lesson in Anthropologie

Anthropologie is sort of an anomaly in my book…..it’s got the feel of a boutique with the convenience of a national store.  I love that when you buy something there, as is true with a boutique, you won’t see it on everyone you know. But because it’s a huge retailer, it provides you with the option of online ordering. The prices aren’t cheap, that’s for sure. But the quality and unique nature of their items is what keeps me coming back.

I stopped by yesterday to scope out what was on their sale racks, which were an additional 25% off, and found several gems I’m happy to share here. First up is this cute summer shorts and top combo. The high rise side-button shorts have a great stretch to them, are the perfect length, and I love the coral and navy color combo.  They are $37 with the sale and I’m wearing a size 2, so I think they run true to size. The tie-front navy top is also a winner with it’s cute bow-front detail and the back is just as interesting. I’m wearing an XS and could have probably still sized down and it’s under $30 with the sale.



I also found several cute summer dresses on the sale rack that are worth mentioning. My favorite is this Kalyn Halter dress. The top is a thick white knit material and the bottom is a striped textile weave in super cute colors. It ran a little small in my opinion….I’m wearing a 2 but would have felt a little more comfortable in a size 4 I think. All in all though, at $75, this is a great dress for a summer party!


I also really loved this teal tunic dress for $75. With it’s super comfy material and great details like front pockets and shirt tail hem, it was easy to picture this dress styled in so many ways…..dressed up with some heels and a long necklace or down with sandals as pictured below. Either way, it was coming home with me 😉  I’m wearing an XS so I’d say it runs TTS.


Lastly, is this navy floral peasant dress. I’m not usually one to sport the bohemian look, but this one spoke to me with it’s off the shoulder sleeves and tiny floral eyelet pattern.  I loved it with sandals, but could really dig it with some platform wedges or even cowboy boots! I’m wearing a size 2, making it true to size, and it is on sale for a steal at $30!


So, the lesson for today is how to make upscale fashion affordable at Anthropologie and there are four key things you’ll want to make note of:

  1. Shop their sale racks online and in person
  2. Sign up for email alerts so that you know when they are having additional promotions. For example, they will feature an extra 25% off of regular priced dresses, tops, or bottoms and the only way to know is to sign up to stay informed.
  3. Join Anthroperks and be the first to shop sales, get invited to special events, and even get a special discount for your birthday
  4. As an Anthroperks member, you can also get free shipping when you buy $150 or more. As long as you have a store nearby, you can return whatever sizes and items don’t work for free.

Class dismissed!
