How to Shop an Anthropologie Sale Successfully

Anthropologie Summer Sale Recommendations and Montage // peplumsandpie.com // Peplums & Pie

This morning, Anthopologie sent an email saying "1000+ NEW Fresh Cuts". At first, my mind went to the trash icon on my phone. To be honest, my everyday job is in Marketing. Not exactly one to fall for copy but the images in the email got me. Anthro always has the best photoshoots.

Long story short, my basket got filled with items! Don't even ask how that happened. But, before just hitting the "checkout" button, I also stopped, took a breath and found not only a strategy but gave myself some ground rules for my morning.

In short, here's: How to Shop an Anthropologie Sale Successfully.

White Tank & Striped Beach Pants

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to work with a local photographer with every intention of writing about my experience but life got in the way. Note to self, July and December equals work-overload. Hopefully that will allow me to cut myself a break in the future. 

This weekend was the first weekend I really celebrated summer. I walked the Discovery Park trails, went on an amazing Electric Boating event with the non-profit I volunteer with and I got to attend a BBQ on the top of a rooftop deck! I love you Summer.

How to Wear all White & Pull it off

How to wear all white and pull it off // Blogger Style //  peplumsandpie.com

I did not mean to take a full hiatus during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. So many fellow bloggers posted what they were hoping to get and also shop the sale early. I was one of the unlucky ones that just had to wait my turn. There has been a lack of inventory, I would say, this year than in the past. It's possibly because it was the biggest event yet. What is also is, is incentive to get the Nordstrom card.

Beside the fact that I didn't get everything on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog Preview & Favorites post. I was able to snag a few items that I'll share with all of you soon. It's been a busy few weeks but I am looking forward to committing time toward my blog from here on out.

6 Summer Lipsticks

6 summer lipsticks

Round up time! Won't lie, these are always my favorite posts to do. Some are repetitive but, let's just say that they consistently stand out and they're the true MVPs. One in particular I tend to wear all year round, you'll know if you check out my IG. 

My quality of lipstick has changed a lot over the past few years. There are a lot of higher end lipsticks and lip stains in this post, compared to past. It's a weakness recently, especially the YSL matte lip stains. They stay on your lips all day. I've tested them. ALL DAY. They are high end and expensive but worth the one application. 

This may be cheating too but one of these lipsticks was given to me as a sample and, it's beautiful. It's absolutely stunning and it had to go on the list because its one of those samples that stays in my handbag. It's the perfect pop of summer color. It'll blow your mind. 

Let's get right into it, shall we?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog Preview & Favorites

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Sneak Peek Preview and Favorites // peplumsandpie.com

Though it tends to be one of the most hectic times of the year for me, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a holiday in and of itself. Its a time where everyone sits down with their snail mailed-in catalog and circles their favorite items like its Christmas circa 1995.  The only issue is, that almost every item is circled so this list needed to be narrowed down a lot.
