Open Thread: Gifting and Getting this Christmas!

Christmas is nearly here!! My travel schedule has been nuts these past two weeks between work and family…I wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re now settled in for Christmas with my boyfriend’s parents and a bit of extended family too, how about you?

Tomorrow I’ll have a new post devoted to the many post-Christmas sales. You can expect lots of fresh markdowns and special offers at stores we love (Anthropologie, Madewell, J. Crew, Sundance Catalogue, Boden, etc.). In the meantime, please feel free to use this post’s comment section to discuss all things wonderful and holiday from a shopping perspective.

I personally did a bit of last-minute shopping yesterday at American Eagle and Old Navy, where I picked up some new comfy delights for myself with Hanukkah gift cards. I’m currently rocking this so-cute velvet cami under this warm and comfy flannel in blue with this necklace, these earrings in ‘navy’ (which is really a clear turquoise blue) and these leggings. And I mentioned it previously but I received the Thoma Clutch & Tote Bag in moss as a gift and I’m adoring it — especially the removable clutch that I can quickly grab out of the tote for lunch runs!

Below, just a few of my holiday pickups. What are you looking forward to picking up in the coming days?


Merry Christmas to you and yours!! 
Wishing you lots of love, peace and joy in this holiday season.

    30% off sale. Did anyone else get the 25 dollar off coupon and a little Anthropologie calendar as their gift this year?
    I finally bit the bullet on the Capri blue Colossal Candle and it hurt a little less with it being 30% off and using my extra coupon.

      I did not get anything…… I did get a coupon though on black friday with my bell that I used.

        I’ve only purchased home items this year because their clothing choices were a no go for me.
        I only go into the store now to return items.
        Sadly, it’s the first entire year I made zero clothing purchases. Anthropologie do better!
        Hope everyone has a lovely Christmas! Thanks Roxy for keeping this site going!

          me tooooo. But I also do not need much anymore as i have a closet full of anthro now. Only "clothes problem" is that since i mostly wear my "skinny" type jeans most of my other pants ( i usually get pants at nordstrom) do not get worn nor do my earlay anthro tops that are more fitted but have all the cool girly details. Can't wear those tops with my snugger bottoms. Argh!

    30% off sale. Although there isn't a single clothing ornaccessory or shoe item I want at all. How far far of the mark ANTHRO has been for the past 5 years.
