When looking to invest in a coat, I always ask myself a few questions: (1) how often will I get wear out of this coat (2) does it look similar to something I already own (3) are there multiple ways to style it. This particular coat passed all my questions and here, it now lives in my closet! (PSA: it’s currently on sale (grey & camel here // grey, camel & black here // black & burgundy here)). Living in San Francisco, the temperature stays pretty consistent and doesn’t usually drop below the 50s during the fall and winter seasons, so this coat provides the perfect amount of warmth. The best part is the reversibility of the coat – you can wear it with the charcoal grey or the heather grey. I love the option of wearing with the waterfall front effect (as styled) or being able to button up the fronts to create a more traditional wrap coat look. And, with the grey colors, this coat will pair well with practically any color outfit so I’ll be getting a lot of use out of it.

P.S. Have you entered the Nordstrom giveaway?

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:

Style trend: cape coats

style trend comment

Style trend: cape coats | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Most likely you’ve seen one of the hottest outerwear trends this season: cape coats. What’s not to like? It has a striking ability to transform an otherwise usual outfit into a more sophisticated look. Plus, having the arms exposed allows you to contrast it with a unique print or textured long-sleeve shirt underneath the coat to create visual interest. Try a black or camel colored cape coat if you’re looking for a versatile coat or opt for a textured fabric or bright color cape for a more fun feel. Which is your favorite?
