Then, we are going to have a very serious discussion about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
You should probably start to mentally prepare.
I’ve been hearing about THIS for awhile now.
The information says it’s a multi-purpose stick for eyes, cheeks, lips and body. Its unique,
lightweight, cream-to-powder formula blends effortlessly to provide
sheer allover color, shimmering accents, contours and dynamic highlights
for all skin tones.
This is one of the reviews:
I went in looking to replace my now-broken
compact of Orgasm blush and skip my highlighter step. The Multiple to
the rescue! It’s creamy, easy to blend and easy to layer on extra color
for photographs or nighttime events. I get highlighting without shimmer
and it wears really well, even in heat and humidity. If you don’t own
this, RUN, don’t walk, and get one today!
I found these SUPER INEXPENSIVE earrings (click HERE) in both a pale pink and mint green. Pretty!
THIS Fossil bag is on sale too for a great price!
The color is perfect, and you know I love a cross body!
Okay you guys…I try to stop talking about THESE wedges….but you guys keep talking about them. 🙂
Shay is vacationing right now (miss you Shay!) and she posted this pic on instagram, and everybody started asking where the shoes were from.
CLEARLY I HAVEN’T ADEQUATELY PERFORMED MY DUTY OF INFORMING EVERY LIVING BEING ON EARTH ABOUT THESE SHOES.
Seriously people! Just click HERE for the shoes already!
I also got a facebook message from a reader, Ashley, asking me what I wore with the shoes because she was having trouble finding things to wear with them.
Hmmm….what do I wear with these wedges?
Oh yeah, everything.
And look at this blog comment I got on Wednesday that I loved:
My PUTTY WEDGES CAME IN TODAY!! I got them when I went home for
lunch..and you are not going to believe this: I CAME BACK TO WORK IN A
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT OUTFIT WITH THE WEDGES ON!! THEY ARE PERFECT! I
feel so sassy in them! 🙂
Awesome! Sabrina had a costume change mid work day. Hilarious!
I am also getting TONS of e-mails from you all about the Vigoss jeans (HERE),
the nude flats (HERE), and the denim jacket (HERE).
All of the e-mails are exactly the same.
You all say things like “I can’t believe a $38 pair of jeans is so awesome!” and my favorite “they make my butt look great!” (which 3 of you have said!).
And “How have I never had a pair of nude flats?”
My friend Andrea e-mailed me a pic of her in the jacket last night with the following message:
“She arrived…and I think we’re going to be besties.”
She also got the wedges this week and after texting back and forth we decided that they are made out of either fairy dust or angel wings. Or maybe a combo of the two!
I love my friends! 🙂
For some reason there is a common theme of skepticism that runs through many of your e-mails.
Basically you say things like “I didn’t think I needed the ____ or I didn’t think I liked the ____ that much….but I did/do!”
What in the world do I have to do to get you girls to trust me? 🙂
It’s now time to talk about the Nordstrom Annivesary sale.
If you are a cardholder, you can shop NOW!!!!!
If not a cardholder, you are going to have to wait patiently (ha, good luck) until
July 19th (next Friday).
For those of you not familiar, the Anniversary sale highlights
NEW FALL ARRIVALS AT A REDUCED PRICE.
The items are introduced with SALE PRICES, and then when the sale is over, the prices go back up.
It’s Nordstrom’s way of encouraging us to start buying fall stuff when it is still 100 degrees outside.
AND IT WORKS.
The deals are fantastic.
Some of the things I’m going to be highlighting today are more expensive than the stuff I usually talk about. But I’m willing to pay more for high quality boots, bags, and jackets that will stand the test of time…and I imagine many of you are too.
Turn off the t.v., tell your kids to go to their rooms,
and ignore your husband for the next several minutes.
THIS. IS. SERIOUS. 🙂
I’ve gone back and forth about how to approach it, but I’ve finally decided on a strategy.
(Yes. A strategy. I mean business.)
My little one has been sick this week and we have a family reunion this weekend, so it’s going to be Tuesday before I can actually get to Nordstrom and try the products on.
However, I have poured over the catalog as well as online and I definitely have
some preliminary picks!
I can’t link to them directly yet since the sale is only live for cardholders.
So, instead I am going to reference item #s.
Click HERE , sign in as a cardholder if you are one (or sign up to be a cardholder so you can start shopping asap!), and put the item # in the search bar.
And if you’re a cardholder, you get double points between now and the 18th!
And don’t worry, if you’re not a cardholder, I will provide direct links next Friday for those of you that can’t look online until then.
Remember, I haven’t tried any of this stuff on yet or seen any of it in person, but it’s what I am definitely loving now! There are almost 3,000 items on sale, and I think I’ve looked through almost all of them and narrowed my favorites down to around 50 items which I will share with you over the next week.
Today I’m going to mainly highlight the boots….because boots are what really get me goin’! 🙂
All next week I will highlight other things…..bags…..jackets…great tops…..jewelry….etc…
The great thing about Nordstrom is that with free shipping you don’t feel like you need to wait and just place 1 order to save on shipping. It doesn’t matter!
Remember, just click HERE, sign in, and then enter in the item numbers if you are a cardholder! And if you just can’t wait until next week….you can always sign up to be a cardholder!
Take a deep breath.
Here we go.
(I should probably mention here that although I love the easy breezy nature of summer clothes. I am a TOTAL sucker for fall clothes. And boots? They are my kryptonite.)
I am OBSESSED (like crazy person obsessed) with 2 pairs of wedge boots.
I fell in LOVE with wedge boots last year.
I loved the height they gave me with the comfort of a wedge.
I can’t afford both of them, but I love and adore both of them.
I fear it’s going to be much like Sophie’s Choice.
Miz Mooz West boots: Item #682889
(sale price $169.90 – regular price $259.95, savings of $90!)
Via Spiga Felipa boots: Item #680819
(sale price $229.90 – regular price $350, savings of $120!)
Now, some of you might be like one of my friends who finally broke down last year and bought herself a pair of Tory Burch boots. And she’s so happy she finally did it! If you’ve been pining after some for awhile, now is the time!
Tory Burch Brita Riding Boot in black or brown: Item #679474
(sale price $299.90 – regular price $495, savings of $195!)
fyi: I’ve heard from an insider that these go super fast and they often run out of the Tory Burch inventory during the course of the sale.
Or maybe you’re more of a Frye girl?!?
Frye Brooke Shoulder Bag: Item #569932
(sale price $252.90 – regular price $378, savings of $125!)
Frye Melissa Harness Boot: Item #661311
(sale price $265.90 – regular price $397.95, savings of $132!)
And some other of my boot picks follow.
(Sorry, ran out of time and couldn’t include the prices.)
Item # 678852 (love the cognac color), Item #681406 (love the brown and black together),
Item # 681889 (love the distressed leather), top bootie Item #693636, leopard bootie Item #682100
Now that you’ve seen my picks, you can click HERE if you want to see the online catalog
(although be warned that it is a bit overwhelming).
When the sale goes live next Friday, you can have access to ALL of the deals (not all are included in the online catalog).
And remember…next week I will highlight new picks each day!
I’M DYING TO KNOW!
WHAT ARE YOU LOVING?
HOW MUCH ARE YOU WILLING TO SPEND ON A REALLY NICE PAIR OF BOOTS?
