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:

New season, new jeans

sponsored, style trend comment

A new season means a new pair of jeans – whether that’s cut or wash. If I could, I would live in jeans everyday. They’re just so comfortable and the varied cuts and styles means a new look is always possible. So, I’m really excited that ShopBop has teamed up with some of my favorite denim brands to curate a dream collection of jeans. I’m particularly excited to try out the ones from Citizens of Humanity, Paige, and Rag & Bone. What about you?

Style trend: flared leg jeans

style trend comment

Flared jeans

As the weather cools down, you’ll probably be transitioning from shorts and dresses to jeans. Put your skinny and straight leg jeans aside and dive into the Fall trend of flared jeans. Borrowing inspiration from the 70s, you’ll probably be observing a lot of looks from that era hitting the streets this season: denim skirts, suede, and flared-leg jeans. Will you be wearing the flared leg denim trend?

Contrast pocket flare jeans

Light wash flare leg jeans

Pink flare leg jeans

Dark wash flare jeans {orig. $63; on sale for less than $19!}
