Hey friends! I’m sure I don’t have to tell you twice that it’s an exciting day for all of us fashion lovers! I know y’all are just as excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as I am! And I’m so happy you’re here to shop with me! #itsmorefunwithfriends! Cue the champagne, cheers and confetti!!! I actually did have mimosa
s while I shopped the sale early yesterday and can I tell you- shopping is even more fun with a little side of bubbly! #youknewthat! I think they wanted to get me drunk so I’d shop my face off. As if I needed liquid courage for that! I hope you are at home or work (shh, I won’t tell!) shopping online, because I’m sure the store is crazy packed today and I wouldn’t want to fight the traffic or dressing rooms today of all days!
And, if you aren’t quite sure what all the fuss is about, it’s okay, I’m happy to fill you in! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is THE SALE with all the NEW fall fashion goodness that is just released, but at slashed prices for three weeks, then they go up to full-price. The things that are on sale now are the things you will be itching to wear the minute the slightest hint of a cool front hints- and actually even a few things you could get away with wearing now. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens today for cardholders, (get a card here and shop today) but don’t worry, if you don’t have a card, you can start shopping next Friday! Mark your calendars to come back here, because I will have more to share!
At the store yesterday, I found so much to share with you that I’m breaking it into two posts. I’ll be back tomorrow with the second half. This post is already super long, so I tried to keep my commentary brief and informative! Maybe go ahead and pour yourself that mimosa, I’ll wait . . . . .
First up, I’ve been aching for a new pair of jeans and was specifically excited to try the much-loved AG skinny jeans. I’ve read the rave reviews about this quality, designer jean with a flattering fit, so that’s one of the first things I reached for! This pair is with a raw hem delivered and will make you look like a skinny mini! They fit TTS, but of course were a little long on me. The alterations lady actually said I could just cut the hem at home with scissors so that’s what I plan to do. Her only tip: be sure to cut a straight line!
This off-shoulder top sure ups the game on your grandpa’s flannel shirt! It’s super soft and cozy, and the off-shoulder/long sleeves are an awesome combo. I tried on XS and it fit fine, but the petite would probably be better. It also comes in pink and I think I need that one too! You know I’m going to recommend my all-time favorite strapless bra and I couldn’t believe our good fortune when I saw the PERFECT T-Shirt bra included in the sale. Remember the one I was giddy to find that’s wireless and seamless with good lift. Yep, it’s on sale for $39, $60 after the sale.
AND, my very favorite seamless panties that stay in place all day and are ultra comfortable, so much so that you’ll forget you’re wearing them. Those panties are in the sale for only $13, $19 after the sale. I’m thrilled to see more colors like pink and aqua- they only had tan, black and brown before.
Of course I was anxious to try on boots and booties, but this suede slide is one of the pairs of shoes I loved the most. It fit the most comfortably and the suede is buttery soft.
Right away I was smitten with the cowl neck sweater vest. The waffle fabric is thick and the baby pink is really pretty. It’s got small v-cuts on the side and isn’t the pocket a fun detail? A tight turtleneck isn’t usually my thing, but I love the looser cowl neck style.
