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.

 

Fall/Winter Designer Clearance Sales

Happy holidays to you and yours. I hope you’ve had a wonderful 2016 and have a happy new year. The Fall/Winter designer clearance season is upon us and there are some really special bags and coats that are currently on sale at great prices.

Here’s a few of my favorites.

Burberry Small Milton Bag in Grainy Leather

From the first time I saw this bag in the Burberry boutique in Vancouver, I fell in love and nearly took her home with me right then and there. This two tone bag is truly stunning.  The Milton is also available in baby crossbody size and a medium tote size.

Burberry Lace T-Shirt Dress

I saw this in the window of my local Burberry boutique and it was stunning. The two tone lace is gorgeous!  The photo really does not do this dress justice.

Burberry Classic Trench with Oversized Details

I’ve been searching for the perfect, classic trench coat and Burberry is an obvious candidate. What is not to love about this?

Longchamp Small Pénélope Fantaisie Tote Bag

I love the mix of the suede and grained leather. I think the small size is also perfect for a petite gal like me.

Chloe Small Drew

I think the Chloe Drew is the new “it” bag. I’ve seen it everywhere on celebs and I love it. The chain strap makes it a little dressier and special in my opinion. I love this pink color and I think in the smaller profile, it is perfect.

 

Chloe Hudson with fringe

I saw this Chloe Hudson in the store and the fringe is so fun. I love the boho look and feel of the bag! Be aware that the fringe does get a little unwieldy if you’re opening the bag up, but I think its so fun I don’t think I’d mind it.

Neiman Marcus Friends and Family Sale

Neiman Marcus is having their very first Friends and Family sale. Take 20% off your in store and online purchase of any regular-priced purchase, though there are some exclusions. Use code FRIENDME. I noticed that while the details for the promo are kind of fuzzy on what merchandise is excluded, it might be based on brands. For instance, I tried applying the promo on a Chloe and Burberry bag and it wouldn’t take the discount off. The sale goes through today.

If Neiman decides to do this again, I’d love to see less exclusions. Typically Friends and Family sales are on nearly everything in the store. While I realize that sometimes certain brand agreements prohibit this, it would be nice to see that beauty is not unilaterally excluded and more premier designers are participating.

Labor Day Sales including Nordstrom’s summer clearance

Labor Day is upon us and so ends the glorious summer season. I had a wonderful August recovering from the Anniversary Sale. How was your August?

Now that it is September, we are onto Labor Day sales! Nordstrom is having a summer clearance with items up to 40% off. I spy a cute Burberry Brit trench coat on sale for 30% off.

Nordstrom’s sale ends on Sept 11.

REI is also having their annual Labor Day sale. Lots of items for 20-30% off. My husband ordered a cool new Cannondale cyclocross bike for 25% off.  Now that it is September in Seattle, it has started to pour.  Because it rains so much here, nobody carries umbrellas!  We just dress for the weather.  My Arc’teryx Beta rain jacket is on sale (men’s version here).  I love this jacket because it keeps me DRY!!! The hood is oversized and actually keeps my head dry, unlike other jackets.  The pockets are also nice and big so I can keep my phone and keys in there without worrying they will fall out.  There’s also a zipper for keeping them extra secure.

REI’s sale ends Sept 5th.

Finally, Nordstrom Rack is holding their “clear the rack” event, which is 25% off clearance items. There are TONS of swim suits for super cheap.  A ton of Vix swimwear is 70-85% off which is amazing. There are also a lot of cute kids shoes like these Frozen themed cozy boots.  Wish they still had my daughter’s size, she would love them.
