Winner of an Anthropologie gift card! J. Crew Coat score and PARTAY!

Yo. What up.

Man- today started out crazy at work. I don't want to go into specifics, but it wasn't good. I deal with media queries and I've been getting them regarding what happened- so naturally...I'm a busy bee today. Not to mention I was out sick yesterday and the day before so catching up on e-mails and tiny stuff was out of the question until just now (afternoon).

In GOOD news, I WON something! I know, I know. Calm down.

I never win a thing- so I was BEYOND excited when I saw an e-mail alert that someone from Anthropologie said I had won a $50 Anthro gift card for completing one of those surveys that randomly pop up when you visit the site. Can you believe that junk? Awesome!

Yesterday while I was sick I was doing some online store surfing, of course. I found the best deal at J. Crew. It was 30% SALE and FREE Shipping if you spent $150 or more. The Double Cloth Collette Coat has been on my radar for months now- and I honestly didn't have the $298 bucks to shell out for a nice new coat, but I really loved it and knew it'd be worth every penny for years to come.

Needless to say the color I decided on (which they call a TAUPE, but looks pink to me) was on SALE, plus 30% off of that. I needed to add a few more items in my cart to reach the $150 mark for free shipping- essentially i got the other two items for cheaper than the price they were at. BOTH on sale as well, mind you! I did well.

Tacky Sweater Party commences in 3 days- I've already started decorating and planning drinks and food- are you going/gone to any Christmas/Holiday parties this season?

Congratulations on the gift card! I always wonder if anyone actually wins those things so it's good to know that they actually follow through on their promises!

And I'm totally tempted by the J. Crew offerings too. I'm trying so hard to be good before Christmas though!

That is awesome that you won a gift card. I always say I am going to do those surveys, but never do.

I am going to an ornament exchange this weekend!

Thanks for letting us know about the $50 win! I'll be much more likely to fill out those surveys from now on!

Nice score on your Crew stuff. They just sucked me in this morning. I've been kicking myself for not buying the Moss Tweed Skirt, and there it was! So naturally I had to buy a bunch of other stuff as well.

Hope your media frenzy turns out well!

Awesome little surprise! I never win anything like that. Have fun doing a little (more) shopping. ;)

Lisa said...

NO WAY!!! I never win anything either. Maybe there's hope for the rest of us after all :-)
btw, hope you're feeling better today.
also, on a side note, I noticed you're reading The Help. Is it any good?

Beautiful choices and girl you deserve that thing - NICE! I heart winning things, especially from great places like that!!

I have a tacky sweater party in 3 days too - eek!

Big congrats, Jenny! I've always wondered if the retailers ever gave anything for doing those surveys - your winning ways have proved me wrong!

Your Crew scores look awesome - I can't wait to see you rock the Collette!
