Nothing gives me more anxiety from mid-July to early August than the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. From the moment that the catalog arrives in my mailbox the first week of July to the constant fear that I am going to miss out on the MUST HAVE items and then come August 7 WHEN all of my favorite items will be restocked and the prices go up.
It is now July 26 and we ALL know that we are well into the biggest sale of the year…
Items are restocked, selling out and creating the ultimate shopping frenzy. Every blogger on the planet has completed a fitting room try on haul and shared the sale until they are blue in the face…So, like any good fashion blogger, I had to share with you the FOUR pieces I purchased from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Did I want more? Yes. Do I need more? Nope. And do I genuinely love everything I purchased? Hell Ya!
So I present to you – The Four Items I Purchased from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
ONE: Starting with the ASTR THE LABEL, Shine Cross Back Midi Dress (above). I initially fell in love with this dress in the Nordstrom fitting room. The twirl-worth skirt made me feel like a lady and the luminous sheen of the dress led me to believe that it would instantly make me look like a tan lady – so I bought it. Sale: $49.90 // After Sale: $75.00
TWO: My first purchase led to my second purchase: the Spanx,Undie-tectable Lace Hipster Panties. Now before you start to roll your eyes and complain about JUST how uncomfortable Spanx are and or how many times you have removed your Spanx biker shorts in the middle of a wedding (3x) take a minute and try these panties. Not only do they smooth out my ever expanding food belly (I’m wearing them in the top photo with the blush dress) they also look semi-sexy the flirty lace back – so I won’t terrify
ALL my tinder dates! Sale: $15.90 // After Sale: $24.00
THREE: The perfect dress for wine tasting AKA the Cold Shoulder Midi Dress by LEITH. This dress didn’t get wrinkly in my bag (even though I did pack a steamer), does NOT require a strapless bra and can easily transition from day to night. The breezy cutouts accentuate the beautifully draped sleeves and allowed me to wine taste in style without showing any sweat in the heat in Livermore over the weekend. Paired with a straw hat, black tote, and black sunnies this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale dress is a MUST! Sale: $52.90 // After Sale: $79.00
FOUR: Good American, Good Legs High Waist Skinny Jeans (below) AKA the denim of my dreams. Check out my original post on Good American jeans here. While I was originally a major fan of the ‘Good Waist’ jeans I easily transitioned over to the Good Legs style…thanks to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. While I did go up a size from the Good Waist to the Good Legs (ugh) the frayed, raw-cut step hems sold me on the style change and the sculpting fabric technology flatters my your curves and almost has a spanx like effect on my belly! Sale: $123.90 // After Sale: $185
