Some people love holidays, but I love the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! For me, it’s a time to shop for fall preview type stuff and hopefully score a good deal on fall and winter accessories before I need them. I’ve got a couple contenders out there for the ladies! Sorry, gents, my man said not to look at men’s stuff. I rarely buy stuff for me and I’m always trying to buy or successfully buying, hiding, and lying about men’s clothes to my husband. Last summer, I bought him a whole new wardrobe at this “time of year” without his approval so he’s on to me. Luckily, last year he only returned one shirt out of 10 shirts I got him and he kept all the bottoms and sweaters. Even though I’m not posting anything on the xy side of things, take a look because there were a few incredible buys in my email advert the other day which doesn’t count as looking if you don’t click the links 🙂 As promised, lets start with beauty! There is a lot going on this year at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but these are the top three things that caught my eye.
You get three full size pencils, a sharpener, and a cute case for $49. Just buying the pencils alone would be over $70 so it’s a good deal. Yu is perfect for finishing up the summer, Luxembourg for transitioning into fall, and Proactive Red is a great matte shade to go to work with you all fall long. Proactive Red is pretty universally flattering, it’s like the LBD of the set. Dress it up or down, it’s a winner!
A new twist on the set that came out this spring. A little more rose and brown in the mix make this one a day to night dream with the quality you expect from Dior.
If you’re traveling light this fall, this is the palette you want. It’s got a little of everything, it’s slim and chic. All you need is a sample pot of foundation to take with you and you won’t need to check a bag! Since it has Les Beige in shade 20 this is suited best for lighter toned folks. As a reference, Les Beige in 20 is a light bronzer for me so I’d think up to NC/NW 30 would be able to use it as a finishing powder.
Speaking of traveling, this normally goes for $200. It’s perfect for now over a tank or tee when it gets nippy at night or on a plane and works as a year-round layering piece. Great investment!
Another great deal on a classic! I love the cheeky combo of black and navy here. Finding a perfect fedora brim for a woman is hard. Most women’s fedoras are too slim in the brim and men’s a hat will overwhelm your face. This one is darn near perfect!
Finding the perfect bootie is tough. This one is another almost perfect example of what I look for. They are usually $400 so this is a real bargain. They show off enough ankle that you can wear them with a short skirt without looking “cut off”. The heel height is 2 1/4 inches so even those of us with foot, ankle, and knee injuries should be able to rock them comfortably! They also come in a nice gray shade too!
BCBGeneration Asymmetrical Zip Wool Blend Trench $129
As you can see this comes in two stunning shades. I prefer the Raspberry, but the Blue is equally lovely! I love this coat because it is classic but edgy and right in the sweet spot between casual and dressy. The shape is so flattering I might have to order it!
