Creepy Peppering and Ketchup!

Hi Readers!  It's been awhile.  I hope everyone is doing well.

First, the "Creepy Peppering" portion of the post title.

The ambiance in the park was strange the morning I took OOTD photos for Anthro's Peppering Skirt. Tule Fog was rolling in from the River just over the rise behind me. Yet the sun was rising in front of me.  Is this scene creepy or what?

You know your addicted to Anthro when...
1. You calmly ignore a popular item that goes on sale, even though the reviews are excellent and you have nothing like it in your closet.
2. You check the product page daily and watch all sizes disappear and feel absolutely no emotion.
3. When the item sells out, you suddenly realize it's a must have.

I mean really, what is so fun about haunting a product page 6 times in an hour for a pop back in your size?  Absolutely nothing.  But I do this very thing obsessively. I admit that I find it a challenge that I enjoy.  There are well over 30 Anthro links in the bookmarks bar at the top of my browser. Not only that, I haunt product pages for friends. No joke!

I happen to think it's absolutely awesome that Anthro Community members share information on Roxy's EA Pop Back Posts.  In theory, I thought such posts would make finding coveted pop backs more difficult for the online shopper like myself.  This is not true at all.  Last night I ordered a pair of shoes listed in a comment on the Pop Back Thread.
                                                    The Nuts and Bolts Sandals by Frye 

In reality, the complete opposite occurs.  Roxy is one smart Gal. Ha-ha! I may be more addicted to EA than Anthro.

I had no clue my Orla Kiely bag was so valuable and rare. Orla's Reversible Leather Shoulder Bag is far from my favorite. I was surprised to find an eBay listing for the bag priced higher than the original non sale price. $700. The seller recently dropped the asking price to $650 HERE (not a listing of mine or anyone I know).

Spotted Satchel - by Holding Horses - Anthro Orig $268 Sale $130 - Nov 2011
Quasar Necklace - made in USA - Anthro Orig $398 2nd Cut $100 - Aug 2011

The Spotted Satchel by Holding Horses is not an example of my Anthro addiction.  Ha-ha!  Who am I kidding?  I did not sit around and watch this bag disappear online. I knew I wouldn't get a second chance at this bag on Black Friday.  Anthro stores were not taking phone orders that day.  I picked this one up the minute it went on sale.  Despite the quirks, I use it far more than I ever thought I would.  All this bag needs is a drop of Super Glue and patience when latching.

In The Trees Skirt - by Floreat - Anthro Orig. $158, Sale $80 - Nov 2010
Size 2 on eBay HERE
Jackie Cardi in Dark Rosewood - by J Crew - $62 - July 2011
Hip Cinched Blouse Gold - by Meave - Anthro Orig $98 Sale $50 - Nov 2011
Ruled Tote in Navy - by Holding Horses - Anthro Orig $268 Promo Sale $65 - Nov 2011
Freshwater Pearl and Crystal Heart Necklace and Bracelet - by my Mom - 2008


Who did Maeve have in mind to wear the Hip Cinched Blouse?  Not me.  I'm the charter member of NSS (Narrow Shoulder Society).

But, I have worn this blouse as a layering piece under 3 different outfits. Ho ho!  Can you say "versatility and layering piece" at the same time?

So, I did as any addict would do. I haunted the product page for the Green version.  I happened upon a size 8 after...oh maybe a hundred *clicks or more (who's counting), for the stellar price of $20. 

But, the Green version is an 8. Doh! When I saw the pop back, I paused over the size for a few minutes. Then I popped it in my shopping bag and checked out. I can run a seam up each side to tighten the fit at the hips.  Who's going to notice under a layer?

Did saving $30 over the sale price make all that clicking worth it?  Yes! I get a kick out of finding a coveted pop back. If it's on 2nd or 3rd cut, even better.  

*clicks performed in the early morning and lunch time hours on work days, and at home in the evening and on Sunday nights only.  Completely appropriate clicking hours.

Marquee Gemmed Heels in Yellow - by Miss L Fire - Anthro Orig $148 Sale $80 - Nov 2011
Available HERE in Red


Another example of an item I could have cared less about.  I kid!  The Marquee Gemmed Heels are the first pair of Miss 'L' Fire's that have attracted my attention in 2 years.  They were immediately wish listed.  I couldn't believe my luck when they made sale so soon, with 5 star reviews.  I adore them. However, the glued on stones make them impossible to wear as an everyday shoe.  These need Super Glue too!  I buy it in a two pack.

Oblong Reflection Necklace - by Nakamol - Antho $58 - Nov 2011
Sparkling Thingamabob Clip in Silver  - by Citrus - Anthro orig $24 sale $10 - Jul 2010
Almost done!

I never once considered the Beaded Felt Pencil Skirt until it made sale. It wasn't until then, I made time to read the reviews. Moulinette Soeurs Skirts consistently fit my low hip/waist ratio of 8. Did I dress this skirt down enough to make it suitable for work?

The Beaded Felt Pencil Skirt is my favorite skirt purchase for 2011.

Tiered Stripes Dress in Purple Motif - by Bailey 44 - Anthro Orig $188 B-day Disc $160 - Dec 2011
Cream Confection Coat in Cream - by Idra - Anthro $178 - Oct 2010
Spotted Diamonds Tights in Black Motif - by Eloise - Anthro $18 - Nov 2011

Quilted Patent Iris Bag in Cream - by Orla Kiely AW10 - Yoox Orig $335 Sale $170 FS - Dec 2010
Waving Pennant Necklace - by Pam Hiran - Anthro Orig $58 Sale $40 - Dec 2011





I wasn't impressed with the Layered Columns Dress.  My issue with the dress was lack of sleeves.  I finally jumped on the Bailey 44 band wagon when the Tiered Stripes arrived.

 

My only qualm now is... the quality of the fabric. When I arrived home late Christmas Eve I noticed little black balls of fabric all over my Cream Confection Jacket.  That's when I inspected the unfinished hem on the tiers of the dress.  Sure enough there are notches of missing fabric.  $188 is far too much for a dress that will look good for only a few wears.  I would need to hem every tier by hand because the fabric is extremely stretchy.  I'm certain the hem would ruin the smooth look of the dress. This dress is saved for special occasions only.


The Tiered Stripes would have been my favorite dress buy for 2011.  I passed it over for the Downeast Dress by Pendleton.

Are you addicted to Anthro?  What are the signs? If you're an online shopper that lacks a local store...have you ever haunted Anthro for pop back?  What was the item?  Did you ever find a pop back?
