A steal of a deal

Every so often I get really lucky and score a steal at Anthropologie. I have no idea what this necklace is called or if it ever made it to the website. But it’s been taunting me from the glass jewelry case at Soho and (until recently) 5th Ave. I tried it on once knowing it would look great over my…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Effortless Anthropologie turns 1! (And a contest.)

Today is Effortless Anthropologie’s 1 year blogiversary! I got myself a cupcake for lunch to celebrate. No embarassing phone call from my parents this morning though.

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Just thought you might like to know about…Kensie

Just thought you might like to know about…Modcloth

Untitled by Kwassa on Polyvore.com One of the reasons why I continue to use Polyvore (even when it annoys the heck out of me as it has done lately) is because I love seeing the way other people use the items I have saved in. Take the set above by Kwassa. She uses lots of Anthropologie items in her sets…

Pardon the rant but this makes me super grumpy. I am not linking to this aggregator site and I suggest you don’t go there because who knows what kind of viruses it has?
