Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul and Try-Ons!

Ok, put your hand up if you stayed up late last night to shop the first hour of the sale… yup I thought so! Tons of people have already been shopping and have caused the site to crash under the huge load!

I decided to brave the crowds this morning and also shop in person and I wanted to share my haul and photos.

Shoes

I only had a few minutes to check out shoes as it was extremely busy! I tried on the Cole Haan GrandPro Spectator Scalloped Slip-On Sneaker and liked it but didn’t love it. What did come home with me though, is the Steve Madden Sultan Chelsea wedge sneaker. This was super comfortable and priced very well at under $60 during the sale!

Active

I tried on a couple of Zella items from the sale. This sports bra was SO CUTE. I loved the flower print!

I also tried on the Zella Old School Daydream sweatshirt. I love the thick sweatshirt material and the funnel collar is very cute. I thought this fit true to size. I like my sweatshirts slightly loose and this was a looser fit. I only wish it came in more colors! I would have loved this in a brighter pink.

Barefoot Dreams has 3 cardigans in the Anniversary sale. My favorite was the CozyChic Lite Circle Cardigan. The CozyChic Lite Coastal hooded cardigan is the same material, while the CozyChic cardigan which is a thicker material. Personally, the thicker material made the cardigan look much more like a house coat and I didn’t love the look. It was VERY soft though, so if you’re looking for something to cuddle up with at home, this would be perfect.

 Womens Clothing

I saw the cutest Nordstrom tee for any Nordy girl.

I also tried on a few sweaters including this Free People Saturday Morning cardigan which was so amazingly cozy. I love the open weave, though I can imagine this will be easily damaged in the store. This was marked Small/Medium and it runs on the large size.

This Chelsea28 cardigan was unbelievably soft and light. Loved this!

Unfortunately this Chelsea28 lace bell sleeve top had to go back because of the buttons. I can’t manage buttons in the back! However, if you’re not a button-phobe like me, it was definitely gorgeous and fit really well.

Home

I made a quick stop in home to check out what was there and I found my favorite candle of all time, which is the Capri Blue Volcano scent. If you’re an Anthro addict like me, you’ll know this scent well!

There was also a wide selection of Barefoot Dreams CozyChic throws in case you want more BFD goodness in your life. :-)

2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog is Live!

The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog has dropped! If you are new to shopping the sale, this is a unique sale where NEXT season’s merchandise will be on sale before the season even starts!

This means you’re shopping for Fall in July… weird, I know! But it is great because you have your pick of sizes and styles — not just whatever is leftover. The catalog is only a small fraction of what you can expect to find at the sale. Don’t worry… there will be PLENTY more!

The sale starts July 20, 2018 and will go through August 5.  Early access for Nordstrom card holders runs July 12-19 ahead of the official sale start date. Level 4 card holders get a special Anniversary Sale pre-shop date on July 11.

Without further ado, the catalog link is live here… enjoy and happy shopping!

Nordstrom Black Friday Deals!

Nordstrom has announced their Black Friday Deal for this year and they are doing an extra 20% off selected sale items. Last year, they ran the same promo and nearly everything was included except for the certain designer labels (mostly the highest end premier designer items).

I’ll be updating my post as I come across any great deals!  In the meantime, have a wonderful thanksgiving!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Public Sale Has Started!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially started! I have noticed that Nordstrom has been trying different things each year to change up the way the sale works. A few years ago they had a bunch of super limited quantity items, this year I didn’t see them label anything as limited quantity, although it seemed like a few things flew off the shelves within the first hours of the sale!

This year it seems like there is less of a focus on luxury items and more of a focus on the midrange price point. I noticed that some of my favorite basic items from years past are either discontinued or not part of the sale, which is a bit disappointing!

In any case, I did get a chance to shop the sale and I have a few favorites to recommend:

 

Clothing

barefoot dreams circle cardigan nsale haul

I bought the Barefoot Dreams Circle Cardigan cocoa/pearl heather which is a great neutral color. I love how cozy it is. I wish they would size these a little smaller though, because the XS/S is still a little long on my shorter frame.

zella high waisted live in leggings nsale haul

I am fairly certain that the Zella High Waist Live In Leggings are the same as in years past. I was really worried that they had changed up my perfect leggings.

caslon knit assymetric jacket nsale haul

I love clothing that has an assymetrical twist. I don’t know why but I do. This Caslon assymetric drape jacket is super cute. Apparently it did come in Petite sizing but I must have missed that.

 

vince camuto prasata bootie nsale haulA friend tipped me off on these Vince Camuto Prasata booties and I think they are so cute. They haven’t arrived yet but I’m hoping they fit well!  The description says that they are true to size or slightly narrow.

 

betsey johnson forever perfect bra nsale haul

The Betsey Johnson Forever Perfect bra fit really well. I have a small band size and I felt that this was true to size even though the description says to go up a cup size. The push up version did not fit me well.
