UPDATE – Written at 6:05 p.m. Thursday evening
The little fella has an ear ache 🙁 , so we are about to head to the doctor.
This is of course going to delay me posting my FAVORITE FINDS to the blog.
I’m imagining it will be around 9:00 tonight before things are on the blog, but go check me out on facebook for several sneak peeks!
Find me on facebook HERE, and say a quick prayer for the little guy! 🙂
Somebody hand me a paper bag.
Somebody else remind me to breathe.
And if somebody else could slip me some major cash that would be great too. 😉
If you are a cardholder, click HERE right now, log in so you can be granted access, and just take a minute to let it all sink in!
BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER, PLEASE KNOW THAT THERE ARE REPORTS THAT THE NORDSTROM SITE IS MOVING A BIT SLOWLY THIS MORNING. JUST BE PATIENT, CHECK BACK, AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLACE YOUR ORDER. I CALLED IN AND THEY ARE WORKING ON FIXING IT RIGHT NOW. NO NEED TO PANIC!
IF YOU CAN’T ORDER, NEITHER CAN OTHERS, THERE WILL STILL BE BLARDIGANS IN A COUPLE OF HOURS! 🙂
on the blog tonight!
Why? Because you girls are all members of the Inside Scoop Group and I am going to start posting some of my favorite things I try on today after I get home tonight!
I got a good night’s sleep (just kidding, I went to bed at midnight and woke up at 5:30), I ate a hearty breakfast of egg whites and steel cut oats (just kidding, I had a glass of V8 and a handful of Cheez-Its).
I. AM. READY.
I’m sure they have plenty in stock, but part of me is so worried that it’s going to sell out.
(If you didn’t get that, I was doing my best Oprah right there.)
THAT’S A SAVINGS OF $30!!!! If you’re buying 3 blardigans (which I am),
that’s a savings of $90!!!!
If you are new to the blog
The “blardigan” is part blanket and part cardigan.
blanket + cardigan = blardigan
You can definitely wear it in your house all year long (just ask Andrea!), but you can also wear it out of the house when it’s cold.
I do both.
In fact, once when I was sick, I wore it 5 days in a row at home.
I’ve also worn it out to dinner, to the mall, to the movies……pretty much everywhere.
Here I am in it last year with my must have shirt, skinny jeans, and tall boots.
I wore this exact outfit all fall and winter long.
Oh, and fyi, it washes beautifully.
So, top priority for all of us should be buying at least 1 blardigan.
(I have heard from a couple of you that you are buying a 2nd one for yourself. Just to have a back up.
Hey, I can respect that.)
Here’s what I’m most excited about trying on today:
BEBE KNIT AND FAUX-LEATHER HOODED MOTO JACKET
Item # 85469
$79.90 / After Sale $128
Fun detail on this one!
TREASURE AND BOND COLLARLESS MOTO JACKET
$218.90 / After Sale $328
I hope I love this as much in person as I do in the picture!
ECCO SULLIVAN LEATHER BOOT
$189.90 / After Sale $279.95
Totally loving the detail of the wrap around buckle on these boots.
I’m SUPER excited about these next two items.
Both are so cute and both are AMAZING deals!
HALOGEN FAUX-FUR TRIMMED JACKET
Item # 665389
$84.90 / After Sale $128
KUT FROM THE KLOTH CATHERINE BOYFRIEND JEANS
$52.90 / $79.50
KENDRA SCOTT EARRINGS
$33.90 / After Sale $52
These should be another top priority for you! And again, think about the fact that these would make great Christmas presents!
And click HERE for all other KS items included in the sale! Including some really great pendant necklaces!!!!
COLE HAAN SINGLE WRAP BOOTIE
Item # 741471
$184.90 / After Sale $278
I like the black leather and the brown heel.
It also appears that I have a “thing” for wrap around buckles on boots.
B.P. TRAIN MULTIPLE WRAP STRAP BOOTIE
$79.90 / After Sale $119.95
Yep, I’ve for sure got a thing. AND WHAT A GREAT PRICE!
Other things that have caught my eye in the catalog:
Hanky Panky Underwear
(I try to buy 1 or 2 pair every time they are on sale! I’m slowly trying to replace all of my underwear! My favorite is the regular rise thong. And if you are new to Hanky Panky…they are in fact One Size Fits All. I know it doesn’t make sense, but it’s true!)
Hudson Collette Skinny Jeans
Steve Madden “Yale” Belted Boot
Treasure and Bond Paneled Moto Jeans
a new Natori bra
(I got one last year, and I hope to get a new one every year during the sale! It’s the best bra I’ve ever owned. It’s also the most expensive bra I’ve ever owned, but I found out it’s SO WORTH the money.)
who knows what other treasures I will find today?!?
Last year I didn’t give the MUST HAVE shirt a 2nd look in the catalog, but I obviously ended up falling in love with it and becoming straight up obsessed!
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
FINGERS CROSSED I WILL FIND A NEW MUST HAVE!
Am I going to buy everything I want? Of course not.
But I PROMISE YOU I will try tons of it on and report back to you!
I know many of you don’t live near a Nordstrom (sorry bout that), and I know there are others of you that would just prefer to avoid the crowds and shop from home. I totally get that, and I’m your girl!
Remember….make sure you come back tonight and I will start posting pictures of my finds from today!
And fingers crossed I will get to use this:
GAME ON LADIES.
It’s 5:45 a.m., and I’m up and slowly making my way through the sale online. There are several things I’m finding that weren’t in the catalog!
YOU GUYS!!!!!! AMAZING THINGS ONLINE THAT WEREN’T IN THE CATALOG!!!!!
Like THESE Tory Burch boots. My sister used to work at Nordstrom, and she said the Tory Burch boots rarely made it to through the cardholders sale.
OH MY GOODNESS!
Check out THESE Kate Spade studs!!!!! Only $24.90!!!!!!
Look at THESE!!!!!! It’s a new spin on the MUST HAVE Shirt! Look at the gathering detail around the shoulders! LOVE!
I’m getting black (remember the other colors show wrinkles). And if it runs like the last shirt, remember to size down. I had an x-small last year.
Everybody leave a comment saying the Anniversary Sale items they are most excited about!!!!
And if you are getting a blardigan, tell me how many you are getting! 😉
