Anthropologie Tag Sale – Further Discounted!

Anthropologie is having their summer tag sale which is one of their biggest sales of the year.  Lots of stuff is marked down to 50% off, and with the additional 30% off with code EVENBETTER, its now down to 65% off!

anthro_summer_tagI found lots for myself including:

This cute top was a bright orangey red. The detailing on the shoulders isn’t super obvious in the photo.  I love the bracelet length sleeves.

I saw this top on one of the sales associates the last time I was in, but decided not to purchase it at full price. I’m glad I waited and now it’s on sale!  It has a slightly boxy fit, and I love the shoulder detailing.

I actually got this t-shirt in black. The yoke has some ridges/pleats which are adorable. The material is also thick and soft.

I don’t often shop at Anthropologie because they don’t offer free shipping but I am so glad I checked it out today because I found so many cute things!





What’s New for the 2016 Anniversary Sale

Every year Nordstrom tweaks the Anniversary Sale just a little bit. There are new designers and new procedures.

This year I’ve noticed 3 things to start with. I’ll keep adding to the list as I find out more intel!

1. Level 4 cardholders get an Early Access preshop opportunity 1 day before the start of Early Access. This is instores only and you should be receiving your invitation in the mail.

2.  Everyone will be able to earn Nordstrom Notes via their expanded Rewards program

3. New designer joining the sale this year: Alexander Wang

4. Double points for Nordstrom card holders has disappeared. We used to see double points during Early Access and the first weekend of the sale. This is a huge bummer!  You can still use your Personal Triple Points day — this is what I’ll be doing!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 – Handbag Sneak Peek!

I have seen a few of the handbags that will be part of the 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I’m here to report back!

Let me get the bad news out of the way first: unfortunately, this year there are no Chloe or Burberry bags in the sale.  A total bummer because I always look forward to these!

I do still think there are some bags to get excited about!  Here’s a few of the standouts for me:

3.1 Phillip Lim – Quill bag in both large and small sizes

This came in black but I’m not sure what other colors.


Rebecca Minkoff Vanity Saddle Bag

It’s shown here in this picture in black leather, but the anniversary sale options are in suede. I believe the colors were a camel suede and a burgundy suede.



Rebecca Minkoff Dog Clip Saddle Bag

This one was priced really well at about $120.


In addition to these, I remember seeing an MZ Wallace, a few Tory Burch totes and a wallet, a few Kate Spade bags and wallets and a cute Coach tote.
