So, I went crazy... Anthro SemiAnnual Sale

Went with one of my utterly fab and fashionable friends, and we had a blast! Some items were a disappointment - such as the lusted after horizontal stripe skirt that looks FABULOUS on everyone looked TERRIBLE on me. Even the SA was speechless how terrible it was (very high waist, so I guess I"m short waisted? Because it came under my boobs and it was so terrible!) 

Anywhoo, made a good dent in my wallet! 

Also, their "small" belts are quite big - some of them (despite their cuteness) were no-goes because they'd just fall off my middle!

Unfortunately, my size was sold out of a lot of things, but that's why there's online ordering, right? Also, love that I can make returns, unlike a lot of online purchases :)

1. Songbird Dress: $37
2. Dots and Dahlias Chambray Top: $39
3. Belt: $19
4. Belt: $29
5. Afternoon Safari Pencil Skirt: $59
6. Winter Blossoms Bib Necklace: $39
7. Fetch and Frolic Dress: $79 - one left; size 6, grabbed anyway. :p
8. Atmospheric Hoops: $19
9. Ruled Pointe Tank: $39
10. Cheeka Pencil Skirt: $39
11. Path of Flight Earrings: $19
12. Islington Pencil Dress: $79
13. Gazette Corset Belt: $39
14. Ginger Gold Blouse: $49 (bah, now $29; not in my size)
15. Tassel Sash Belt: $29

On backorder:
16. Minerve Swing Dress: $39
17. Minerve Swing Dress: $39 
18. Dual Foundation Pencil Skirt: $29

If everything works out, it looks like I'm done shopping for awhile :) Also, it was hard to resist "deals" - but I think I stayed pretty true to my aesthetic, while wanting to experiment with a few things - chambray!

    What a haul! I wish we had an Anthropologie here!

  • Kristin L replied 4 years ago

    Very nice! I hope they all work.

  • Arya replied 4 years ago

    Great haul! I love those dresses, in particular. I don't need any more clothes, but I am sorely tempted to go check out the jewelry!

  • Diana replied 4 years ago

    Ooh, nice. I was disappointed in the selection at my Anthro yesterday. May try to go to the downtown one this weekend or something, or I may just order online.

  • rae replied 4 years ago

    I sat on my hands this year, but I'll live through you - that is an amazing haul!!

  • replied 4 years ago

    How fun!  You did great!

  • Glory replied 4 years ago

    Echo Ceit - wish we had one. I have never been in one but your haul makes me want to get there, quickly. Great choices!

  • Charmian replied 4 years ago

    Those silhouettes are very "you", and I adore the fun patterns!

    Is this the final haul before you go on SYC?  I'd sorta wondered what was the origin of that thread :)

  • lynne replied 4 years ago

    I was successfully sitting out this round, but after seeing your haul I ordered the ruled tank. I figured it didn't count, since I'd been eyeing it anyway. ;)

  • catgirl replied 4 years ago

    Wow, did you score - those feather earring are TDF, and all of it looks very you.  Argh.... tempted to look now!

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    Lovely things. I really like the black pencil dress (#12) I always feel overwhelmed in their store, but it is always busy. I see why.

  • rachylou replied 4 years ago

    Pretty fabulous haul! I think the pencils will be especially fab on you, as well as the solid flare dresses. However, the Songbird dress you shouldn't keep - you should give it to ME! Haha!

    Those are pretty thrifty prices for Anthro, I might add. Smart shopping!

  • lyn67 replied 4 years ago

    Wow, they are all great things, I esp love the dresses and the last skirt:-)

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    Wow. That is quite a haul! I especially like that songbird dress! 

  • tayleigh replied 4 years ago

    Wow. Especially a fan of #14, #12 and #1 - will we be getting some photos of your haul on soon? :D 

  • cheryl replied 4 years ago

    What an awesome shopping spree you had. Great purchases.

  • catgirl replied 4 years ago

    I just ordered the feather earrings - there's something so Indian about the style and color, I couldn't resist!

  • pil replied 4 years ago

    Quite the treasure trove you have there! I dn't see any plain tops though :)

  • Sara L. replied 4 years ago

    Wow, you really did go crazy!  I think they all look like your style and you got a nice mix of items.  I especially like the necklace in #6, the tank in #9, and the belt in #13.  I look forward to seeing how you style these items.

  • Raisin replied 4 years ago

    Score! You made off like a bandit! Can't wait to see these puppies styled.

  • lyn* replied 4 years ago

    Tee hee ... sneaky like a bandit!!!!

    There's tons of stuff in store still because people around here don't appreciate nice things (they flock to Lululemon!) - so many pretty things! Must stay away now :)

    Thanks ladies - yeah... SYC now. 

    Snarky nurse today was impressed.

  • Thistle replied 4 years ago

    Fab haul!! Can't wait to see them on you.

  • nancylee replied 4 years ago

    What lovely pieces, Lyn.  Can't wait to see them all styled!
