Anthro Sale Buys

Normally I pass on Anthropologie sales but something I really wanted from my wishlist went on sale along with two recent purchases. And the bonus was an additional 25% off.

You’ve seen me in the Lemon Liftoff Blouse by Girls from Savoy here. There was only one left in a size 10 when I went by Tuesday. I was able to get a price adjustment and the 25% off.  I am really surprised at the deep price reduction on this blouse, especially after seeing it on Glee last week, but I guess people don’t get the owls.

Havana Fresca Skirt by Maeve – I bought this last week in a Small and wore it Friday out to dinner with an older blouse by Bordeaux and my Lanvin Espadrilles. I love the red even though it looks more pink in the outfit pic below. This is very comfortable and just feels chic. I was able to get a PA and the additional 25% off on this one too.

Arced Crosshatch Blouse from JJ by Julie Haus – The pattern and flowiness of this blouse originally peaked my interest when I saw it a few weeks ago in the store. But because of the boxiness I wasn’t sure how to style it. Luckily Anthropologie had it layered under the Contoured Crewneck sweater and tucked into the High IQ Cords.

Whirligig Dress by Velvet – Before I left the sale room I scoped out anything I might have missed originally. I found the Whirligig Dress in Dark Orange. I missed this dress completely when it was regular price and originally noticed the Medium Pink which looks more like a Wine color. The Small fit well and I think this is going to be a great Fall transition dress. The Velvet brand has always been a favorite of mine.
So, because of the 2 PAs and the additional % off I only spent $23 on the two new purchases! I can’t wait to wear my new dress and blouse. 
But first, I have to decide on what to wear to meet TIM GUNN this Saturday!!!

    Was in Anthro just the other day, and I love almost every felt fedora I saw. Literally could not decide, as I was shopping solo, and needed an opinion to sway me one way or the other. Have you bought one?

    Thanks Pam! Always love a good sale!

    Chic Chauffeur – So funny you say that. I bought a denim fedora from Lucky Brand the other day. I wasn't quite sure about it but it was too cute. I haven't worn a hat as part of an outfit since high school so we'll see how it goes.

    Hi Audrey,

    The shoes are a 38, I take 37.5 in Louboutin and Manolo and a UK size 5, I'm still not sure what my US size is , maybe 7 or 7.5?

    Hope that helps, it's all so complicated!

    Love that pink skirt on you! I was also surprised the Lemon Liftoff was so discounted, but I'm not complaining! 🙂

    Chic Chauffer — I also couldn't pass up the fedoras. I had to get the orange one. I mean, who couldn't use an orange fedora?! lol.
