What I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
FINALLY! As of July 20th, all the waiting, wishlisting and wanting could finally come to an end and the general public got access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I still get some questions from readers about the sale and what it’s all about so let me break it down for you gals:
Where: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is available in both American and Canadian Nordstrom stores. I personally shopped my go-to location at CF Sherway Gardens in Etobicoke but I love getting to the Eaton Centre location when I can. Other locations featuring merchandise from the sale include stories in Calgary, Ottawy and Vancouver. Despite the online collection offering a wide variety, I love getting to see the items in person, try them on for myself and I can get my Anniversary goodies altered on site – score!
When: Nordstrom Cardholders have early access to the sale but as of July 20th, the sale opened up the general public and no card is required. The sale can be accessed online and in store. The sale will extend till August 5th but prices on all merchandise will go up on August 6th.
What: While most sales tend to be mark downs on merchandise that has sat on shelves for weeks or months on end, this sale gives you the opportunity to preshop the latest fashion from designers like[RC1] Kate Spade, Ted Baker, 1901 and more – before the season even arrives! I love getting a sneak peek at what’s coming down the pipe for fall/winter and getting it on sale before I even have to dress for the season. We all know those chilly fall mornings are just around the corner!
What I bought:
BP. Colourblocked Sweater: In a true, buy now, wear later style post, I wanted to show you guys how I drew inspiration from this colour-blocked sweater. I love the idea of wearing it now draped over this Eliza J dress but also worn casually with jeans for a more simplistic fall look come September.
Sleeveless Dress: I love how this Eliza J Dress is one of those throw-on-and-go styles you don’t even have to think about before work in the morning for summer. Come fall, I love it styled with a button up blouse under and some fun earrings and by winter, I might add a blazer and tights but a sheath shape like this can be reworked so many ways!
Raw Hem Skinny Jeans: Despite having a penchant for dresses, skirts and all things feminine, this girl can’t resist a good pair of jeans. These Blank NYC raw hem jeans look great in summer/fall with open toed shoes or ballet flats. Come winter, they’ll tuck in perfectly to knee-high boots or even ankle booties with nylon sucks under.
Kate Spade Crossbody: I love the neutral tone of this Kate Spade Crossbody bag. Whether you style it with the elongated chain or even tucked under your arm as a cute clutch, this bag is definitely down for double duty. I also love how easy it will pack for weekend getaways!
Cole Haan Leopard Print Flats: You can count on me buying at least one pair of leopard print flats every season and these shoes are no exception. From the bow detail to the padded insert, these shoes are a true winner from summer to next spring!
White Cotton Blouse: A go-to for work wear wardrobe, I buy a crisp white shirt every season. I love that this particular style has stretch in it and curves to my shape making it tuck into pants and skirts without excess material.
