It was just “eh”. Shrug and tilt.
And then I had an idea!
If you e-mailed me a direct question, I think I replied back to everybody with an answer.
I think. I hope. 🙂
However, since lots of the questions were similar in nature, I thought I would post some of them today so everybody could see the answers! (I figure if one person has a question and takes the time to e-mail, probably 10 more of you have the same question.)
Question #1: The Blardigan
I was so excited this morning when I hopped online to just check and see if the blardigan had been re-stocked, and it was! I ordered 2 (one for me, one for my sister for Christmas) and I was thrilled. About 2 hours later I got an e-mail from Nordstrom saying that my ordered had been cancelled. What? Noooooooooooooooooooooo!
Do you think they will re-stock it again?
Sadly, I don’t think the blardigans are going to be re-stocked during the sale, which totally bites!
$60 was just such an amazing price that I guess everybody and their dog wanted one.
Throughout the weekend I probably got around 25 e-mails regarding the blardigan.
Most said things like “OMG! I’M IN HEAVEN! THE BLARDIGAN IS THE SOFTEST THING EVER OWNED! I’M NEVER GOING TO TAKE IT OFF!!!!”
It was so fun for me to see how all of you love your blardigans as much as I love mine!
I also got several e-mails also saying “the blardigan is online again”!
And y’all were right. Kind of.
There are blardigans still available (in several different colors, including the ombre)……
However, the ones that are now available are NOT included in the sale,
so they are the regular $90 instead of $59.
Click HERE for the blardigans if you just can’t stand it and have to have one, even at regular price.
Listen, I get it.
And so does Amy.
Amy (a sweet reader) tagged me on instagram with this picture:
Amy is my kind of girl.
Thanks for the mention Amy!
I opened THIS blush tweed jacket up on Friday, and I couldn’t wait to style it.
So, even though it was close to 90 degrees inside, I threw on my boots and my tweed jacket and literally couldn’t have been more excited about it!
Isn’t it DARLING!?!

Jeans and tee are both old, and are both sold out. Sorry!
Several questions about this particular find.
Questions #2-#4: Pink Tweed Jacket
Is it lined? I can’t get to a store, and I can’t tell online if it’s lined?
No, It’s not lined.
Would I prefer for it to be lined? Yes.
However. For $38 I decided I still wanted it because it was just so dang cute!
I saw on facebook that you got a medium in the pink tweed jacket. Do you normally wear mediums in jackets, or did you get a medium because it is juniors? I don’t live by a Nordstrom and I want to get the right size.
Depending on the jacket, sometimes I wear a small, sometimes I wear a medium.
However, when dealing in junior’s sizing, I ALMOST ALWAYS wear a medium in jackets.
So, I did find it to be true to size for junior’s sizing.
(To give some of you a size reference, I wear a small in the Kut from the Kloth must have denim jacket and a small in the Caslon military jacket.)
Speaking of, the 2014 Caslon military jacket is 45% off right now! Click HERE!
This next one was on facebook:
I am thinking this would be great for work. What color dress pants would you wear with the pink?
Question # 5 : Make-Up
I always try to get some of the beauty deals during the anniversary sale. I’m a total make-up junkie and like to get a lot of bang for my buck. Plus, I just love the sets that you can only get at this time of year or at Christmas. This year I got the brush set from Bobbie Brown and the Laura Merceir Flawless Expressions Set,(have you seen this set? it’s wonderful and the colors are absolutely stunning) but I was wondering if there was anything else you would recommend? It looks like there are lots of great things, but I just can’t make up my mind.
All the way from New Jersey,
Caroline mentioned several items in her question:
click HERE for all beauty deals.
click HERE for the Bobbi Brown brush set
click HERE for the Laura Merceir flawless expressions set which looks pretty amazing!
Okay, now to the question.
Look at this little lip gloss buffet that I got.
I’m not really a make-up junkie, but I do LOVE lip gloss. I only own 1 lipstick (and it’s from the drugstore!), but I love having different shades of lip gloss to change up what
my base color looks like.
So THIS set from Laura Mercier totally caught my eye.
The colors are all so so pretty, and I love mixing it up and having several to choose from.
(That’s real life that you see going on in the bathroom behind me. The dog’s bowl, and apparently the HUGE bag of dog food. Oh well.)
Question #6: Jewelry
I’ve had so much fun following along with you during the anniversary sale, but I’m not a cardholder, so several of the things I wanted were sold out by the time I went to shop on Saturday morning.
I really want to pick up some accessories, are there any you can recommend that are still available?
I don’t want to spend a lot of money.
Thanks for your help!
Hi Alissa! This question was easy!
Loving my new bracelets THAT WERE ONLY $17 EACH.
The leather wrap ones totally look like Tory Burch, but they don’t wrap around, just a single layer.
Click HERE for these bracelets in the sale (the leather ones and the spikes and knotted ones).
Click HERE for my new patent flats (not in the sale, but a staple for me for sure).
My new Kendra Scott necklace I got at the sale is out of stock. Boo!
Question #7: Mixed Media Leather Jacket
It’s the Bebe Knit and Faux Leather Moto Jacket.
And it’s soooo cute.
A lot of you were disappointed because it sold out in small and medium pretty quickly, but mine is actually a medium. I love the jacket soooooooooo much.
I think it has a great look to it and it’s obviously at an amazing price point.
It’s one of the few items in the sale that is marked as “limited supply”, so if you are interested, you should probably jump on it.
However, all that being said, I’m not totally sure if I’m going to keep it.
The small is too small on me (like when I zip it up I have trouble
breathing). And the medium is just a tad bit too big.
The sleeves are a
little long, and I’m just afraid they would bother me.
But I love the overall look of it so much I’m considering keeping it anyway.
Oops! This fab coat is now sold out! Sorry!
But I’m keeping the picture because it was one of the 10 questions originally. And I feel silly having 9 questions. Because I’m weird like that.
Question #9: Leggings
Because I don’t if you’ve heard.
But they are MUST HAVE.
Most of the questions just asked if they were really as good as I claim they are
The answer is YES.
1,000 times yes.
I took the following info and pictures from a post last fall:
Or some guy in his own pair of leggings with a trumpet drawing attention to the unveiling of this fabulous find.
But since I’ve got neither….here it is.
And please, if you don’t mind, just imagine some trumpet fanfare.
Click HERE for the leggings. ONLY $23.90.
For size reference, I wear a small. They are too long for flats, but that’s fine by me since I only wear them with boots and not flats. I have black and grey.
ALSO, IF YOU STILL NEED MORE INFO ON THE LEGGINGS, CLICK HERE TO SEE MY PREVIOUS POSTS ON THEM WHERE I STATE WHY I FEEL THEY ARE PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. 😉
AND IF YOU CLICK HERE YOU CAN SEE THE MOST READ POST I’VE EVER WRITTEN.
(Ryan Gosling even stops by and has something to say about leggings.) 😉
The tunic below is my favorite from last year…but great news….different color choices are back this year and in the sale!
Click HERE for this year’s tunic.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the tunic.
(The x-small was way too fitted on me to wear with leggings, and the medium was way too roomy.)
$39.90 / After Sale $68
One of last year’s tunics…..
And another one.

Question #10: Jeans
You talked about the Kut from the Kloth boyfriend jeans you saw in the catalog, but then I never saw you mention them. Did I just not see them in one of your posts? I’m interested in them but don’t live near a Nordstrom and wanted to see what they looked like on you.
Jess was right! They somehow got left out of my post. Oops!
To be honest, I was hoping to like them just as much as my beloved cuffed Vigoss jeans (that have been sold out for months), but I didn’t.
Did I like the Kut version? YES.
Was I full blown OBSESSED with them. No.
I know they are boyfriend jeans, but the fit was still a little looser down the legs than I like. However, if you are looking for a true boyfriend jean, they I think you might love them!
Click HERE for the ones I’m wearing in the picture below (only size 6 and above remaining online).
I do feel like they were true to size. I’m wearing a 4 in the picture.
I would have liked to try on the 2 to see if that would have made me like them more, but they didn’t have a 2 in store.
There’s also THIS pair of Kut boyfriend jeans that is available in more sizes. They are a darker denim, and I like that. They are also included in the Anniversary Sale.
I got three e-mails about THIS sweater. All 3 people told me it was the perfect cardi to throw on with leggings. It’s a lot longer in the back than it is in the front, which does make it perfect for leggings! I’m going to have to check it out!
And Jarand (a sweet reader!) sent me this picture for the score contest.
It looks soooooooo soft, doesn’t it?!?!
It comes in 4 colors.
$44.90 / After Sale $68
I got 3 separate e-mails about THIS cashmere sweater too.
All 3 readers highly recommended it.
Here’s one of the e-mails:
I’m a cashmere snob, but I bought one of the Halogen cashmere sweaters just to see if I would like it. I ended up liking it enough to go ahead and purchase another one. Not to mention, I was astounded at the price. Well done Halogen!
That’s it for today girls for questions!
But before you go, I wanted to remind you about the SCORE REPORT
contest for the $250 Nordstrom Gift Card that will be given on August
2nd. It will be an electronic gift card, which means you can use it to
shop the last 2 days of the sale if you wish!
send in your pictures to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the
subject line “Score Report”. Send me a picture for each and every item

a handful of them!
And let me just say this.
The items are cute, but you girls are DARLING!!!!!
a) white MUST HAVE shirt HERE
b) military jacket with fur hood HERE

When I was linking the above items, I
saw that the MUST HAVE shirt already had 15 reviews, so I went to read
them to see what they had to say, and 4 out of the 15 mentioned the
I just about died!
Thank you girls for the shout out!!!! Sooooooooooo fun!
I appreciate that so very much!
this in black and dark purple, at the recommendation of Scheaffer from
the PTMT blog. Love it! It runs large, so definitely buy a size down. I
am about 5’3, 110 and the x-small fits great. It is a little more fitted
than last year’s version, which was way too baggy on me. This will look
so cute with skinny jeans and boots this fall!
also bought this shirt on a recommendation from Sheaffer from Pinterest
Told Me To, and I love it. It’s so flowy and comfortable, and it goes
with so many different things in my closet. I ended up getting the
white, the grey pavement and the coral orange.
bought from recommendation of “Pinterest told me to” Blog. Sooo soft!
And I like that it runs big because it makes it comfy without being
tried this shirt on today as recommended by Sheaffer from “Pinterest
Told Me To” and let me just tell you, love love love the black! The fit
is a tad big but it’s perfect if you order a size down. Great for summer
nights out (with a pop of color, like a Kendra Scott magenta Rayne
necklace) and perfect for fall/winter!
to all of you who have already sent items in! Some of the early pics
were from readers that I’ve had since the beginning (shout out Sarah and
Kim!) and others are new faces to me. I just love getting to “meet” the
people who are reading this blog!
Make sure you come back on Wednesday for a special introduction to a very special lady.
Lots of surprises and fun to be had here on Wednesday AND Friday for this one lucky lady (and I know you all are going to love meeting her and getting to hear her story) so get ready!
If I’ve written anything total wackadoodle in this post, it’s because it was midnight when I was finishing it up. I write the craziest things when tired.
(For instance, I took out a sentence I wrote a minute ago about a mouse knocking at the front door.
See? I’m crazy.)
