Happy Anniversary (Sale) Nordstrom’s

July 11th.  The first day of Nordstrom’s Anniversay Sale Pre-Sale (open only to Nordstrom card holders).  I’m a newbie Nordstrom Fashion Rewards member, but I know that the Anniversary Sale is the best sale of the year.  So, I was excited for my appointment with Holly, a Nordstrom personal stylist.  Previously, the client relationship manager at my local Nordstrom offered me a $50 credit to use toward my purchase via the stylist appointment.  I patiently waited for the Anniversary Sale to use that credit and I’m so glad I did.

I had to rush through the personal stylist appointment, so I just bought everything that I initially liked since I knew items were going to sell out.  I parsed through everything and I decided on the keepers and the returns.

The keepers:

Rag & Bone black tux blazer; Paige leather (front panel leather only) leggings; Helmut Lang beige silk top; Rag & Bone striped tank; Vince brown leather sheath dress; Vince striped blanket sweater coat; Autumn Cashmere oatmeal cardigan; Burberry black parka trench (front & back pics); Black long sleeve crewneck modal t-shirt; Burberry biker boots; gym socks (not shown); Hanky Panky thongs (not shown); Natori ‘Feathers’ bras (not shown).

The returns:

Helmut Lang grey leather jacket; Burberry grey jacket.

Holly had to order the Vince brown leather sheath and Rag & Bone black blazer from Nordstrom online since it sold out in the store.  The sheath I have on in the pic is a size smaller than the one I ordered, which is why the fit is off.

I wish I got more bottoms, I only got the one pair.  But, I was planning to wear the jackets and tops with jeans I already have anyway.  Those Paige leather leggings are awesome because it’s impossible to have a muffin-top when wearing them due to the wide waistband.

Did you check out the Anniversary Sale?  What were your favorite purchases?

    We must shop at the same Nordstrom. Holly is my stylist also! I got the Chloe bag in the darker color. I also bought a pair of Simon Sebbag earrings, really great boots by Stu Weitzman, good times, good times.

    Lovin’ the Chloe Marcie! I couldn’t decide between the Paraty or the Marcie when I was lookin’ for a Chloe – ended up with the Paraty but I still love the Marcie. 😉
