Every single fashion blogger in the US seems to be blogging, vlogging, facebooking and tweeting (twittering?) about their finds at the Nordstorm Anniversary sale. I think it is trending (or something). Despite my newness to the fashion world and inability to go to an actual store and pick things out, I am a fashion blogger as well, so here is my blog about the sale.
As some of you know, I live in the middle of nowhere with lots of dirt, sand and sagebrush. The closest Nordstorm is 112 miles away, however we do have a Nordstorm Rack about 45 minutes away. (high style, I tell ya). Anywho, you all know me, if it cant be mailed to my house, I don’t need it. So, sorry if you were expecting to see a bunch of photos of me in a dressing room, that aint gonna happen. Instead of rushing to the closest Nordstorm, I perused the sale online.
One name that kept popping up over and over is Vince Camuto. Truly, I love his designs and there are more than a few very cute Vince Camuto dresses on sale for 30-40% off. However, I had a hard time springing for these items because I have Le Tote. Vince Camuto dresses are available for rent through Le Tote, so why would I buy one? (even a heavily discounted one?) Here are some of the cute styles on sale…
Next as I perused the sale, I started thinking about fall clothing. A close friend of mine is a teacher and she only has 9 days left of summer break. Let me repeat that for you, ahem, in some cities, TEACHERS RETURN TO SCHOOL IN LESS THAN 2 WEEKS. Kids in my town don’t start school until August 21st, but STILL, this summer seems to be whipping by. So, as the weather starts to cool down, kids return to school, and the leaves start to change, we will need to start thinking about all those fall clothes that we love so much. Leather jackets, scarves, booties, boots, sweaters, cardigans….omg…its practically orgasmic. Here are some of the amazing fall clothing items that I found on sale for the Nordstorm Anniversary Sale…
Leather jackets…sorry animal lovers, but at Nordstorm you are going to find some great deals on some real leather jackets. Timeless. Beautiful. Is there anything that says “fall” more than a leather jacket? Maybe leggings? A pumpkin? A Pumpkin wearing leggings?
Scarves…I love scarves, fun, warm, colorful, happy, beautiful scarves. Also, I am a mom, in an emergency, I have wrapped a baby in a scarf, wiped up a mess with a scarf, as well as a snotty nose. Yes, I know I am disgusting, but hey, it happens. If you have never hidden baby spit up or a leaky boob with a scarf than really, you have never experienced all that a scarf has to offer.
Boots and Booties. BOOTS and BOOTIES. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. I cannot wait for Boot and Bootie season. Unfortunately, I have very high arches so it is very hard for me to buy shoes online. Normally the only shoes I buy online are additional colors of shoes I already own. (There is a Clarks wedge that I own in no less than 4 colors). However, that did not stop me from oogling. Here are some of the boots and booties you can get at the sale. (some of which are available in wide calf).
Can someone please bring me an apple cider and something pumpkin spice flavored? Oh wait, it is 95 degrees out, that’s right, it is still July. Before we get to fall, we are going to need to go through fall transition clothing season. Here in Nevada in the high desert, we have some seriously temperamental weather. You can go some sweltering to freezing in a matter of hours, so what the heck are you supposed to wear? Here are some great items for layering in colors that work for both summer and fall.
Blazers and light jackets. Blazers are in this year. A blazer paired with a cute tank and a classic pair of jeans is great transition outfit.
A big tote. A big purse is must for any mom, but it is a must for every woman during fall transition. The perfect place to stash a jacket or scarf when you think it might cool down. Here are some fun bags that work for both the beach and the apple orchard.
Finally, a few dresses that would easily work with layers. Remember, not only do Fit and Flare dresses fit us curvy girls, but they also look great with boots!
I hope you all enjoy shopping the sale at Nordstorm.com through August 6th. If you find something that you just LOVE. I would love to see your pictures in the comments.
