#Nsale Finds 2018

So, as everyone knows, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing and if you are a cardholder, you are already enjoying the sales. If not, click here to change that….it’s not too late! Even if you don’t use the card for purchases, you earn points no matter how you pay, and with the addition of early access, it’s sort of a no-brainer. Okay, PSA complete. On to the fun stuff…..what I bought!

Now, I’m not saying I’m going to keep everything I bought (you hear that, hubby?).  But, I’m not saying I won’t either (sorry, not sorry). It just depends on how it fits and looks in person.  In order to give me the best chance of keeping the most though, I ordered lots of different items, sometimes in multiple colors and often in various sizes. This is key!  This is how I build the majority of my Fall/Winter wardrobe and since my birthday is in just a few weeks, this makes things easy-breezy for the hubs.

Tops

B.P. Raw Edged V-Neck Tee – $11.90

striped v neck

$12 for a top is stupid cheap and this one is such a wardrobe essential that you really need to stock up and get as many as you can justify at that price.  I got several solids last year during the sale, so I opted for a striped one this time. I usually wear an XS in this, so I’d say it’s a generous fit.

Chelsea28 Lace Yoke Top – $45.90

green tank

This is sort of a splurge for me at just under $50, but the lace detail is so lovely and will be great for the holiday season alone or under a cardi for a more casual look.  I ordered an XS based on the reviews….fingers crossed!

Gibson Cozy Fleece Tunic – $39.90

fleece tunic

I love anything made by Gibson and if you add the words “tunic” and “cozy”, I’m buying it. No doubt.  This comes in six colors but I chose the thin grey and white striped one because I think it will go with a ton. I love the hi-low hem and the seam down the middle. These little details make it a tad more interesting, but still an easy piece to pair with jeans or pants.

Cloud Nine Drape Jacket – $59.90

convertible cardi

I’m curious about this one and feel like it could go either way. If it’s microfiber, like it looks in the picture, I’ll likely send it back. But the fact that it’s convertible intrigues me and I figured it was worth a shot. That’s what I love about Nordstrom! You can order it, try it on, and send it back and it’s no big deal!  I ordered an XS in the “merlot” color.

Patagonia Performance Better Sweater – $94.90

sweater vest

These babies have a cult following and I’m already a huge fan myself so I figured I’d grab another while it’s on sale.  The light grey color should go with everything and it will be great for those chilly Fall night soccer games. I typically wear an X-Small in these so I’d say they are pretty true to size.

Trouve Rib Funnel Neck Sweater – $52.90

funnel neck sweater

I’m all about cozy sweaters in the cold months and I think the funnel neck will be a nice detail.  I’m not sure about the teal color I chose, but at the time, it was either that or red, so we’ll see. It will either bring out my eyes or make me look like I’m twelve years old. I ordered a small based on reviews, and it may swallow me. Again, it’s all about trial and error!

Dreamers Exposed Seam Sweater – $29.90

v neck sweater

This is a real bargain at just under $30 and I feel like it’s totally worth a try. The reviews say it’s soft and comfy, which is exactly what I look for in my winter wardrobe.  I chose the mocha color since it was such a good neutral and ordered both a small and x-small since I’ll probably want to wear it with leggings and will need the length.

BlankNYC Moto Jacket – $64.90

mushroom moto jacket

This is a ridiculously low price on a moto jacket and if the reviews are true, it looks a WHOLE lot more expensive than it is!  I ordered it in mushroom so it would go with more and I also got both a small and a medium since several reviewers said it ran small. I have been looking at these types of jackets for several years now, but have never pulled the trigger until now. I’m not sure I can pull it off, but with free shipping and returns, why not at least try? I like that the hood can be removed since I’m not sure how much of a hood-type-of-a-girl I am. Ya know?

Leith Ribbed Shawl Cocoon Sweater – $45.90

pink coccoon cardi

The reviews on this are amazing and I remember it from last year’s sale. I also remember kicking myself for not picking it up then, so I made sure to get it this time. I got the XX-Small in Pink Adobe based on reviews and I’m really hoping it’s as dreamy as it looks. The rounded hem makes it a lot better fitted and all-around more flattering.

Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Lite Circle Cardigan – $76.90

barefoot dreams cardi

If you have ever tried anything from “Barefoot Dreams”, then you know how amazing the fabric is. It is literally the stuff dreams are made of!  I bought my first one two years ago during this sale and now make it a point to buy one every year.  I have also bought them as gifts and quickly earned the title of “Best Gift Giver Ever”.  Trust me, this is an absolute MUST! I always get an XS/S and it’s plenty roomy. I wear mine to lounge and out and about around town and I get tons of compliments and envious stares. Do yourself a favor and get one!

Natori Rose Dream Custom Coverage Underwire Bra – $47.90

black bra

This bra is simply fantastic. It is comfortable and flattering and looks so good under any type of clothing!  I buy at least one of these every sale and this time I chose black.  I find it runs true to size and am seriously planning on slowly replacing every bra I have with one of these. I’ve learned the hard way that good bras are expensive. The key is to find them on sale like this and stock up!

Bottoms

Vince Camuto Textured Skinny Ankle Pants – $58.90

black pants

This is a great price for a pair of nice pants and if they look anything on me like they do on the model, I’ll be happy as a clam!  I haven’t bought a new pair of black pants in far too long to admit, so at this price, it was a no-brainer.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – $64.90

leather leggings

These were yet another item I regretted not buying during last year’s Anniversary sale.  From what everyone says, they are comfortable, flattering, and bring the whole leggings and sweater look up at least three levels. Sold! They aren’t cheap if you are comparing them to leggings, but if you compare them to leather pants, they are an absolute steal! I bought them in a small and cannot wait to try them on!

Wit & Wisdom Absolution Skinny Jeans – $44.90

wit and wisdom jeans

This is a fantastic price on this brand of jeans. Last year during the anniversary sale, I bought these in grey and I have absolutely LIVED in them! The elastic waist is ridiculously comfortable and the length is perfect for booties! I couldn’t resist buying another pair, so I ordered them in my regular size 2.

Zella Live-In High Waist Crop Leggings – $35.90

zella grey leggings

I am a HUGE fan of Zella brand anything but their Live-In Leggings are by far my favorite item in my entire closet. They are so flattering and the high-waist keeps everything all tucked in like I like it.  I’ve never bought the cropped version and this graphite color looks like a great neutral.  I ordered them in my regular small size.

Shoes

I am pretty good on brown and tan boots and booties, but I have had black and/or grey ones on my list since last Fall.  These are the two that I bought from the sale. I may keep one or both, depending on how they fit and look with some of my other items.  They are both super cute with some fun details, so I’m eager to get them in and try them out.

Vince Camuto Pevista Bootie – $99.90

grey booties

Halogen Piper Bootie – $89.90

black booties

So that’s my haul, from top to bottom….for now at least! There were still a few things I missed that sold out pretty quick, but if it’s anything like last year, I’ll keep checking back on them and they’ll likely be restocked. I suggest you do the same! Good luck and happy shopping!
