Style: slip dress

style trend comment

The slip dress has long been one of those unspoken pieces that you wear underneath your other dresses but the new style is to make it the focal point of your outfit. Worn alone or in conjunction with other pieces, it is definitely the statement piece. I’ve picked out 5 slip dresses that can be styled alone or layered for a completely different look.

This black slip dress is beautiful with the lace detail. Try pairing it with a structured blazer and strappy sandals for a more professional look.


 

Pink is such a romantic color and this dress is just that. Want to make the look a little more rugged? Try pairing it with this jacket and these slip on sneakers.


 

Stripes will always hold a special place in my heart and the details at the bottom hem of this dress is perfection. How about adding a button down around the waist to give some visual interest and pairing it with equally playful shoes?


 

The diagonal stripes on this slip dress would be perfect for a tropical getaway. Pair it with a cover-up, cute sandals and a hat, and you have the perfect, relaxing outfit!


 

Though in color and cut, this black slip dress speaks volumes to me. It would be great for a summertime wedding – simply add a belt and heels and you’ll be ready for the dance floor.

One of the most eye catching purse silhouettes this season is the round purse. It’s unexpected and can give that extra wow factor to your complete look. Whether you opt to go small or large in purse size, you can’t go wrong. Try pairing this one with shorts and a tee for that perfect weekend look, or pair this one with a pretty shift dress for a garden party.

This top has to be one of the more fun additions to my closet recently. I love the ruffle detail that’s on the front as well as the shoulder area. The peplum silhouette gives it a free and flowy feel as well. I paired this with jeans and d’orsay flats but I could just as easily make this ruffle top appropriate for work by pairing with trousers or a pencil skirt, and a light blazer.

Nordstrom anniversary sale

deals comment

2015_nordstrom_anniversary_sale
It’s that time of year again – the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! What is this, you ask? It’s when all the brand new Fall inventory comes to the store. All of the new items are marked down (I’ve seen as much as 50-60% off!) during the sale and then, go back to their original prices. So, what are the dates to keep in mind?

July 14 to July 21 – get early access if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder

July 22 to August 7 – Open to everyone

August 8 – Prices go back to their original

I didn’t quite understand the hoopla around this sale until a few years ago. But, some of the markdowns on the new inventory are phenomenal. You’ll want to shop during the early access sale. If you don’t already have a Nordstrom card, I would highly encourage you to apply for a debit card (tied to an existing debit card you have – no credit check run), or a Nordstrom credit card. With either option, you can shop the sale early before certain things run out. And, on top of that, you earn 2 points per dollar spent – when you accrue 2,000 points, you get rewarded with a $20 gift certificate.

So, what are some of the good finds you ask? This is always an opportunity for me to score great deals on designer items I might not otherwise purchase during the rest of the year. I always head to the purse section as I find this is an investment that’s worthwhile for me. I’ve already ordered this versatile bag (comes in 4 colors: black, baby blue, pearl, and beige) – great for work bag or weekend getaway. Also, I’m keeping an eye on this gorgeous leather bucket bag. It is currently marked down to $546 (down from its $1095 price tag). Check out some other gorgeous and amazing purse finds:
