Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What I’m Loving

Oh Nordstrom, I just can't quit you! Great selection, phenomenal customer service, and awesome deals such as your Anniversary Sale! I have a Nordstrom Card so I had early access to the sale but restrained myself, only getting a few more pairs of Hanky Panky Retro High-Waist Thongs and this skirt, but here's some items from the sale that caught my eye:

Michael Kors Belted Trench
Sale Price: $119 (regularly $188)

It's hard to find a single-breasted trench with classic styling, even harder to find one with a hood (come on, our heads also get wet in the rain!). This one from Michael Kors has a look that will be chic now as well as years from now, comes in classic black and khaki or you can be bold with red, and it also comes in Petite!

SPANX Brallelujah Underwire Bra
Sale Price: $39.90 (regularly $62)

After my friend Morgan raved about this bra, I have been wanting to try it. Unfortunately Nordstrom doesn't have it in my size, but maybe they have it in yours!

Nordstrom Opaque Control Top Tights
Sale Price: $6.90 (regularly $11)

Okay I lied, once I started writing this I remembered I ordered another pair of these in black. By far my favorite tights – they are a medium weight, fit great, don't sag mid-day and are durable enough to last more than one season.

SPANX C2 AE
Sale Price: $24.90 (regularly $38)

My other favorite tights – these are just as durable as the ones from Nordstrom but with famous SPANX® control. I love that they are high-waisted so you don't get cut in the middle and have a seamless look under sheaths and fitted pieces. I have walked barefoot on concrete in these and haven't gotten a snag – another brand that will last more than one season.

Theory Gabe B Tailor JacketTheory Emery Tailor Trousers
Pants Sale Price: $176 (regularly $265); Jacket Sale Price: $259 (regularly $395)

Theory is known for making incredibly well-fitting suiting, but the price can often be hard to swallow. With these sale prices it is more reasonable, and with such classic styling, this suit is a wardrobe staple that will get much use for many occasions and for many years.

Note: If you also want a skirt for the suit, the Theory ‘Golda – Tailor' Pencil Skirt is on sale for $129 (regularly $200).

Foxcroft Fitted Cotton Shirt
Sale Price: $48.90 (regularly $74)

I wrote about my love of Foxcroft shirts before, and this is a fantastic deal for a classic white wrinkle-free button-front. Wear now with the sleeves rolled (or even with the hem tied!); wear come cooler months in the traditional way with everything from suits and pencil skirts to jeans and stilettos.

ag Jeans 27Attie 27 Denim Trousers
Sale Price: $52.90 (regularly $79)

These trouser jeans are brilliant! I love the smooth pull-on waist – why bulk up your midsection with buttons and zippers if you plan on wearing an untucked blouse? I have Jag Jeans and love them – great fit, good quality denim, and they keep their shape and color nicely. I also love that they are free of logos and embellishments – just clean, stylish denim.

Kenneth Cole Leather Sleeve Walker
Sale Price: $169.90 (regularly $248)

Talk about a fashion statement! Leather is going to be major again this fall, and this jacket does leather right with a classic silhouette and a subtle use of the material. This would look hot with jeans and a simple striped tee, and would also be a perfect coat for dresses and skirts.

caslon v neck chevron stripe sweater
Sale Price: $45.90 (regularly $69)

Jazz up weekends with a cevron stripe in place of your classic solid; this sweater would also look great for the office over a button-front shirt and paired with a pencil skirt and tall boots. I love all the color combinations, but am partial to the Navy Peacoat/Pear stripe (pictured).

Ambition Stripe Knit Jacket 27
Sale Price: $64.90 (regularly $98)

What a fun fall jacket! The stripes will surely make a statement, and would look great with jeans on the weekend or over a brightly-colored dress and black tights for the office.

Sejour Ponte Knit Blazer
Sale Price: $84.90 (regularly $128)

I am always on the hunt for a classic-cut blazer made of a heavyweight knit. It's not as constricting or bulky as a classic blazer, but still can give that professional look at the office. Not only that, it dresses down nicely and looks great with a cami and jeans for a night out. If you desire color, this blazer is also available in teal for the same sale price.
Note: Make it a sassy suit with the Sejour Ponte Knit & Faux Leather Skirt (Plus) on sale for only $49.90 (regularly $78)

Halogen C2 AE Tipped Sweater Blazer
Sale Price: $51.90 (regularly $79)

A great alternative to the blazer or cardigan, this piece mixes both for around $50. Again, a bunch of great color combinations – do note one reviewer says the mustard is more of a lime color.

Halogen C2 AE Leather Front Peplum Top
Sale Price: $84.90 (regularly $128)

Peplums aren't going away any time soon, and this piece is relatively budget-friendly for it also including the hot leather trend. I love the exposed zipper int he back too!

Halogen Seamed Leather Pencil Skirt
Sale Price: $149.90 (regularly $228)

This is a fantastic price for a leather skirt. Classic shape but with fun details like zipper pockets. I recommend you size down as leather skirts always stretch.

Bellatrix Sheer V Neck Blouse
Sale Price: $59.90 (regularly $88)

If you don't like this print, search the site for there are several others to choose from. I think this is a beautiful and versatile blouse that would look great untucked with jeans or tucked into trousers or a skirt for the office. Also love that it comes in petite sizes.

SPANX C2 AE 27Higher Power 27 Brief
Sale Price: $26.90 (regularly $36)

I have it, I love it, and this price is pretty great.
I didn't cover beauty, shoes, or accessories since those are such personal purchases and sizes and colors are limited. But do check them out, there's some fabulous deals for fall and winter!

As a reminder, Nordstrom has free shipping and returns every day. If you first go through Ebates you will also get 5% cash back on your entire purchase! What are you getting from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

     Oh that sucks!  Everything I listed had stock at the time of posting, though the Foxcroft shirt was only left in the largest sizes.  Bah 🙁

    Funny, I was going to say the same thing…every time you suggest a particular item, by the time I look at it, it’s already sold out.  But, the suggestions are still great for future reference, especially, all the SPANX undergarments.  Thanks!

    I was really looking forward to purchasing the Nars palette, it is sold out already!  I am getting some shoes for the kids and a few accessories for me.
