What is it about Anthropologie? Their well-curated items have always been covetable, but when the Cyber Monday sales roll around, I, for one, become downright feral in my need. From clothes to housewares and their many beautiful baubles, Anthropologie has long been a staple in my life—even if I only aspire to afford their gorgeous wedding dresses and hand carved wooden headboards.
Surely, though, the sales can't be that good, can they? Anthropologie can run the gamut from "oh! that's a good deal!" to "oh my god that coat is two months' rent," which is exactly why I'm hitting refresh on their Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals every chance I get. From well-made staples to extravagant splurges, we've rounded up some of our favorite—and perhaps, a bit fleeting—deals from the store that dreams are made of: would you like to take a look?
You should, because Anthro is having a sitewide 30 percent off sale, with items already on sale getting an extra 50 percent off when you put them in your cart. That's...so much money saved, you should maybe get yourself a little something extra to celebrate.
Everybody deserves a set of nice, quality white sheets for their home. Nothing makes me feel like I've off and run away to a nice hotel than a pair of white sheets on a comfy bed. These breathable organic cotton sheets are perfect for keeping cool in the warm summer months—and they're stylish, too, with the overlocked flange edges, done in black, blue, or ochre. Now, quick: hit purchase and prepare to feel like a stately and refined adult.
Can we see into the future? I don't know, are our dreams prophecies that we forget when we wake, only to later feel a moment of deja vu when something oddly familiar takes place, sending us into a spiral of "what if" anxiety? (Don't answer that. We have a therapist.) What we do know is that you cannot go wrong added a sleek piece like this to your jewelry box/cabinet/dish/etc, because its simple elegance is sure to elevate any look you wear in the coming 365 days (and beyond)!
It's a simple belt bag, sure, but also: who doesn't need a belt bag? Did you know that I haven't owned a belt bag until I bought this very bag? Did you know that I used to just put things in my pockets and hope for the best? Of course you don't, that would be weird! But what isn't weird? Being excited about the deal on this bag, its sleek gold hardware, and how much easier your life will be when you actually have a bag with a zipper on it, like a real adult.
I want to live in these pants. I don't own them (yet!), but I just know they're the sort of pant that I was destined to wear, but have long been too afraid to embrace. Thankfully, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales cutting the price by over 50%, I'm ready to wear these double-pleated wool wonders like the business babe I am not but will be, in 2024, once I finally commit to all of these New Years Resolutions. The first resolution? Buy these pants.
Seating and storage are two things I can never have enough of in my home (what can I say, I love people and things), and the combination of both in one item is enough to get my interior design jollies going. The texture, the hardware, the sleek design? It's the sort of chic functionality that my brain really enjoys (as would all the dog toys and supplies that have been craving a space of their own near the front door).
We've always loved a wrap dress—given their ability to flatter most all body types—and this wrap skirt is giving us the same sort of vibe, with a kickier, more casual edge. It's made of a fabric that the site touts as "Only-at-Anthro Magic Fabric: viscose, linen, cotton, elastane," which sounds like it might actually be able to sculpt and stretch its way towards making any look feel put together. Throw this on with a cute vintage t-shirt and sneakers, and you're ready for the day.
Did I buy myself this dress before putting it on this list to ensure it was mine before I let you all know about it? You're darn tootin' I did, because my priorities are what they are. That said, I am a benevolent ruler of all things Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale, so I am letting you know that this absolutely gorgeous item is on sale for a fraction of the cost, and I am sure you would look fabulous in it. I know I will when it arrives in 7-10 business days.
Is 2024 going to be the year of the business babe, or am I just personally looking for a reason to girl-boss my wardrobe without actually being a "girl boss" because being in charge sounds hard? A pair of pleated trousers on a man in his 60s may be out, but a gal in her 30s rockin' these in or outside of a board meeting? I'm listening to her, I'm investing, I'm giving all of my money. Because clearly she has good taste, and she hopefully got these Marimekko marvels on super sale today!
I love the embrace of the jumpsuit for both formal and casual occasions. Sure, they're a pain in the bum to pee in when you're out, but they look so sharp and flattering! This wide-leg iteration is sharp enough to be worn dressed up or down, thanks to the sleek design and tailored edges. There's a ease to rocking a jumpsuit like this that I'm not saying is magical, but holds a power that you really won't understand until you try it on.
When it comes to serving food, shouldn't your buffet also be serving looks? This statement piece is simple yet gorgeous enough to slide right into most all spaces and look gorgeous. And with 50% off the original price, this Handcarved Samuel Buffet is basically begging to come home with you. The exaggerated, geometric hardware and carved details are the exact sort of embellishment we'd see for three times the price.
Have you ever wanted to feel like the sort of person who would run through a foggy, mythical wooded wonderland in their wedding gown? Do you aspire to be the sort of magnetic nymphette who is soft and gauzy, but also structured, living her life as if a living Instagram filter in a slow-motion music video? Are you also a frugal bride-to-be because the cost of living in your neo-Victorian cabin in the woods is getting more expensive by the day? If so, why aren't you buying this gorgeous dress that's currently over $1,000 off for your big day? Give your little fairy seamstress friends the day off and buy this romantic frock instead. You're sure to enchant regardless.
This dining room table is gorgeous, no? It would look stunning in a room filled with lush wooden and mirrored details, a multitude of verdant plants, a deep aubergine wall color, and deep teal highboy. Funnily enough, that's exactly what my dining room looks like, and I am in the market for a new dining room table if anyone is looking to gift a deeply discounted statement piece to a total stranger. But if you're also in the market (for yourself), at $1,000 off, you'd be remiss not to commit to it.
I'm not saying that Maya Rudolph wears this tunic at a funky, well-appointed Palm Springs home while the music of Prince plays—I don't know her personal life!—but can't you just see it? Because I do: I see it, I love it, and I want to emulate it. I am simultaneously writing this post and scrolling rental vacation homes in Palm Springs for my birthday and contemplating putting this beauty in my cart and making a couple bad financial decisions in the name of glamour and decadence.
These are the earrings of a woman of mystery. They're giving Elizabeth Taylor dropping a luxury bauble in a man's hand while whispering "these have always brought me luck" in a perfume commercial. They're refined, elegant, and absolutely something one of Liz's many husbands would have bought her. These earrings are for real ones only.
This must be the blazer, folks. For any and all of you looking to form an all-girls Talking Heads cover band, this oversized, boxy fit is screaming for you to perform your stylish rendition of “Girlfriend Is Better” on stage—whether that's during karaoke or with your new girl group is up to you.
Maybe it's because I was a teenager who wore JNCO Jeans in the early '00s (shh), but there's something so appealing to me about a very wide-legged pant (especially when paired with a tighter/tiny top—I love proportional variety). These have a level of sophistication to them, thanks to the textured fabric and allover floral print, that elevate them from "just another pair of pants" to Professional Pants (That Are Also Probably Pretty Comfy, We Assume).
