totally tweed

IMG_2410

What is it about tweed that feels so fall and so grown up? I guess maybe because kids don’t wear a ton of tweed (do they?). When I’m in tweed, I feel like I’m all grown up- like I’m organized and know what I’m doing. So, of course, whenever I find a tweed piece on super sale, I generally don’t think twice about getting it because it seems like a somewhat rare fabric these days. The fact that this dress is tweed, hot pink, and metallic…forget it. It was love at first tweed sight.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I’ve found Anthropologie’s clothing sale section to be somewhat confusing in terms of when their first and second markdowns occur. As of today, they do have a sale (online and in-stores) of an additional 25% off their sale section. That’s how I managed to snag this dress last week at such a great price. Frankly, Anthro’s sales often still mean paying about $100 for a dress, but if you go through every sale rack, you will generally find at least 1-3 dresses, skirts or tops that are marked down to $20-$30. I’ve found that the best way to know about their sales and free shipping events is to subscribe to their emails, versus popping into the store multiple times.  
Here’s a great guide to the Anthro exclusive brands:
2) Jewelry at Anthro almost always goes on sale, unless the item is exceptionally popular and sells out before hitting the sale section. Once you find a jewlery item for $10-$20, it generally will not get marked down again. Additionally, items that are $10-$20 go very quickly online and in stores. I’ve often seen something and told myself to just “check-out” by the end of the day, only to find it has sold out. Additionally, the online shop seems to have the best markdowns on jewelry, versus in-store markdowns. The other week I was in the store and the necklaces were still marked as $30 in the store, but were $15 online. However, when I pointed this out, the salesperson did honor the online price. So, it pays to look online first if you are looking for jewelry in-store, and it pays to get it when you see it if it’s a great deal and you’ve had your eye on it!
Anyone else have Anthro tips? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much! Stay warm!
