Anthropologie is celebrating 26 years a bit early this weekend and we get the benefit! The Anthropologie Birthday celebration brings 25% off everything for Anthro members — all you need to do is sign into your Anthro account or create one to enjoy this sweet promotion. As an extra perk today only there is FREE SHIPPING on every order. Hooray!
It’s been a long time since Anthropologie had 25% off sitewide. I don’t know if this means the Fall collection is not doing as well as Anthro had hoped or if this was the plan all along. Either way, I’m delighted by this promotion!
So this weekend I’ll certainly be placing an order and stopping by the store to try on some of the items on my wishlist. I truly hope Anthropologie delivers! Here are some of the items I’m intrigued by right now. If you’d like more Anthro picks and discussion, I examined the October new arrivals recently.
The sole clothing item I’ve bought and loved at Anthro recently is the Matinee Sweater Dress ($168 + 25% off). I got the rose color in my usual size medium and it fits wonderfully! It’s a great length for chilly weather; it hugs my curves perfectly and the rose color is fantastic. Later today I’ll upload a look at it on me to my Shoppable Outfits page.
Anthropologie’s promotion is very competitive compared to some of their past deals, but they still have a lot of competition for my shopping attention this weekend! LOFT for example is offering 40% off your purchase with the code FRIENDS. Most sale is an extra 50% off.
Yes, LOFT does 40% off quite frequently. But their clothing has been so good that I find myself going back again and again! Each new release has brought more items that I want. Like sweaters! This year LOFT has a great mix of sweater silhouettes including several that are long and slimming. I am ordering a second color of the Cowl Neck Tunic Sweater (now $35) during this promotion. It’s so flattering on! The Lacy Pointelle Sweater (now $30) caught my eye on a recent store trip, and it too fits like a dream. (Though I did find the material less soft than I was expecting.) I even found a cute long utility puffer vest to layer under denim jackets for Fall.
And oh my goodness we need to talk about LOFT’s Leggings in Faux Leather (now $30)! A midrise, beautiful set of leggings. If you like sheen on your leather (as I do) these are wonderful. I sized down in these to a medium tall — the large tall was very loose around my waist. I purchased both colors and I’m delighted with them. LOFT has a bunch of beautiful faux leather items, from jackets to skirts. Below, all my picks from LOFT’s latest. (Some prices are before the promotional discount.)
What’s another store that’s really been impressing me lately? Express. I can remember in high school when Express was one of the expensive brands I couldn’t afford to buy much at on my allowance and paycheck. Now that Express feels more affordable to me on an adult’s paycheck I drift back in there from time to time. Recently I’ve been super impressed with their assortment! And this weekend, Express is offering 40% off your purchase online only.
Leather is such a Winter staple in NYC and Express’s faux leather jackets are top notch. Their Minus the Leather collection has massive appeal! I absolutely love the Leather Quilted Moto Jacket (now $89). I have it one color already and am seriously considering a second. I also love their high-waisted Minus the Leather Pencil Skirt (now $31 in select colors or $36 in other colors).
Express is also taking on trendy jean cuts and flourishing. I’m delighted that instead of paying $350 for on-trend two-tone jeans, I can find them at Express for $48! They also have beautiful split-seam jeans (seen in the photo above) for $53. I find Express jeans to run a bit narrow through the thighs so I’m most often a 12 there. While I was very impressed when Madewell, J. Crew and the Gap brands started showing models of various sizes, the last place I expected to see that was at Express — yet they are doing just that! I can now see jeans on up to three differently sized models and I LOVE it. Brava, Express!!
Express will get its own post soon; for now, here are picks for this weekend’s 40% off online-only promo. (All prices are before the promotional discount.)
