how to shop Anthropologie

A few of you have asked how I get so many things from Anthropologie and still have money leftover.  I buy all my items on sale; I've only purchased 1 full price item.  I haven't purchased an Anthro item in awhile (just because I haven't loved too many items as of late), but when I do, this is how I do it.  I learned this shopping method from other Anthro fashion blogs.

1. Create a wishlist.  Put items that you like on it.  Even if your size/color is no longer available, throw it on there.

2. Check your wishlist on Tuesday.  If Anthropologie is having a sale, it will happen on Tuesdays.  On your wishlist, it will show if an item has taken any sort of sale cut, even if the item is sold out.

3. Call customer service.  If the item you've been swooning over has gone on sale, get on the phone and call customer service.  You need the style # of the item; it's located on your wishlist near the picture.
This is what you say, "Hi, I was wondering if you had an item."
CS rep, "Can I get your name and the style #?"
You, "Yes, it's -----.  The style # is -----.  I was looking for the ----- color in a size -----."
The CS rep will then search the inventory database and give you the names and numbers of a few of the stores that have the most.

4. Call the store.  When I call the store, I say the same exact thing as I did to the CS rep.  The sales associates are usually very nice about checking the store for me.  If the SA finds your item, ask if she can ship it to you because your local Anthro doesn't have the item.  The SA will then take down your information.  90% of the stores don't charge you shipping.  Every once in awhile a store will charge me, which is a bummer, but it's ok.  One other tip: Anthro stores will pick up the phone before opening.  I live in the MST timezone.  If one of the stores is EST, I can call on my way to work (my time: 7:30, their time: 9:30) and the store will pick up.

5. Wait for your item to arrive...which can be difficult.  It usually takes a full week.

I don't buy everything on my wishlist that takes a 1st cut (ex. originally $98, 1st cut sale $49); heck, I don't even buy half of the items on my wishlist.  I've been fairly successful with waiting for the items to take a 2nd cut (ex. originally $98, 1st cut $49, 2nd cut $29) and finding them.  In fact, that's how I've been buying everything as of late.  Sometimes it takes a few calls to CS until I locate the item: different days, different inventory lists.

Good luck with all your Anthropologie item-finding endeavors!  Hope this was helpful.

do you like?

I'm getting my hair done in a couple weeks.  I'm thinking of doing something different (keyword: thinking).  Do you like her bangs?  I know we have different face shapes, so I don't know how the bangs would look on me.

The girl is Rachel.  She's my neighbor and is pretty much the cutest thing ever.  Click here to look at her blog.

My principal got annoyed at me today.  I replied with a bratty, snotty comment.  I couldn't hold my tongue.  I just hate when the district people come up with what they think is an awesome intervention and it's actually not helpful at all.  And I let my principal know that.

Do you know what I've been eyeing for a very long time now?  These boots:
Sydney's doing a great job wearing them.  It really hit me last week when it rained EVERY.DAY. that I needed rain boots.  Maybe they'll be my bday present to myself.  No shame in that.

Fridays are our school spirit day.  We're supposed to wear the school shirt.  I don't know what it is, but I just can never bring myself to wear the tee.  It's not because I'm above wearing a t-shirt.  Not that at all.  So, instead, I always wear our school colors: blue and red.

So, I'm back from my long weekend.  In case you were wondering, it was awesome.  This week being back has been a whirlwind, though.  I had parent teacher conferences until 8:30 tonight.  I'm a bit pooped to say the least.  TGIF anyone?
