Nordstrom After Annniversary Sale - Still Hot Fall 2016


This post contains affiliate links. I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

I Looked Online!  I Saw In-Store!  I Bought!







Nordstrom Anniversary Pre-Sale July 14th - July 21st  is in full swing and on Thursday the department store in Bellevue, Washington was an apparel jungle and #1 in sales after the first day across the country.   It was fantastic to examine the merchandise, feel the fabrics, try on pieces and enjoying the shopping frenzy.   By the way - online shopping is superb when choosing items that are known to the buyer.   However, this fashionista learned tips from sales staff and other fellow shoppers while forging through the designated tents.  In other words, do both - shop online and make a department store visit now with your Nordstrom card.   Do it! You will find selections that you didn't even think of that are perhaps better than online.  And, stock is selling out.

Black Beauty










I. Black Jeans Gorgeous:  Snap these babies up before sold out.  Black jeans are a definite staple combined with sweaters, blouses, jackets and can be dressed up or dressed down.  Soft material, comfortable and high waist for super fit.  Wear boots, booties or heels. The choice is endless with these black beauties.

The Beautiful Bootie









II.  The All Weather Suede Italian Bootie: After checking out several pairs of booties with an eye on the Ivanka grey number, these two were shown to me by a thoughtful and knowledgeable sales person.  Of course, I purchased on the spot.  These numbers are selling out fast.  Online states to go up a half size.  The sales associate informed me that everyone was sticking with their own size or going down a half size.  The online site states to go down half size.  Not the case.

III.  The Perfect Fit:  Hanky Panky this year has gone wild with swirls of patterns and vividcolors.  Great price too!

The Disappearing Bra! 









IV.  Purrrfect - Cat's Meow Bra:  Underneath a fitted sweater or any garment requires a bra that is comfortable and does not show lines.  The idea of this bra is to provide a a smooth as silk feel against the skin and also to appear seamless under apparel.  Natori fits the bill.

Dainty and Elegant









V.  The Statement Layering Necklaces:  On a whim during the sale, I happened upon a new brand to me - Gorjana (husband and wife team out of California).  The necklaces are meant to be layered for a feminine and pretty look which is opposite of the chunky necklaces. 



Gorjana 'Thea' Adjustable Lariat Necklace: Gold, Silver & Rose Gold

The Audrey Flat











VI.  Black Pointed Toe Flats:  Cole Haan has done it again with a classic flat that contains OS technology providing cushion and comfort.  The sleek design is everything a Audreyesq fashionista wants in a pointy-toe skimmer flat.




Cole Haan 'Dellora' Skimmer Flat



"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a fabulous pair of shoes" - Hudson & Bleeker

Little Black Bag - LBB







VII.  The Crossbody:  Rebecca Minkoff's little black, whiskey or port saddle bag features equestrian-inspired curves with the finest materials of leather and suede.  This number is beyond sophistication for day and night. 



"Handbags are like friends...you can never have to many!"

Rag & Bone Sweaters

  Winter Sale Pixabay - No Attribution Required We live for sales these days!  Do we not?  Getting a deal on well made, designed clothing with a percent off. What more can we ask for? Currently, there are fantastic price decreases on one of my favorite brands, Rag and Bone.  During the winter months, and even in early Spring and Fall, there is nothing better than a warm cashmere sweater to drape yourself in against the chill.   Of course, I must recommend purchasing a sweater in a classic shape that is timeless rather than on trend.  Classic or Trendy?  Which brings up a good point?  There are always new trends for us to partake each season.  For instance, flared jeans are making a strong comeback.  Whereas skinny jeans remain front and foremost.  A skinny, cigarette or straight leg jean can be worn for years rather than with a flared hem. Another trend hitting the airwaves are loose trouser pants, which in my fashion opinion are reminiscent of pajamas.  If you are going to buy pants,

Red Bathing Suits

  Lady in Red Elizabeth Taylor - Pixabay "When in doubt, wear red." Bill Blass Red is the color of passion, danger, anger and ultimately love.  It is a hue that stands out in a crowd, commands attention, and flatters the owner.  Think of fashionistas sporting a red dress in film or in the real world.  Heads turn, smiles happen, and the world stops for a moment.  Red is the color that truly makes an entrance.  Finding the correct red can be daunting.  If you have light, creamy skin with a pink cast, often a blue red is best.  If your skin is olive shade with a yellow undertone, then an orange red is your choice.  This handy chart by RITO designer knitwear can help identify your personal color of red.  Now the fun begins.  Once you have your color wheel done, you can then choose a delightful red hue from lipsticks, apparel and yes for a bathing suit.  The next mission is finding a red bathing suit, which often is difficult.  One would believe that a red bathing suit would be av

Green Leather Handbags

  Spring Goddess Are you green with envy?  Emerald, green, lime green, kelly green, chartreuse green, hunter green and many other greenish tones are making a solid comeback this Spring and Summer of 2021.  I noticed a substantial display on a recent tour of my favorite department store of this lush and fertile color.   Perhaps wearing green is a symbol of rebirth, a new beginning, of hope and life to begin anew.   After all, the last year has been one for the ages and never to be forgotten.   I believe we are now slowly walking out of the woods, no pun intended, and are headed for greener pastures with flowers blooming, the sun shining and an eagerness to get back to our journey in this life.  Glorious Green Nature Green symbolizes healing, growth, and hope.  And, as we know, nature is at the core of the hue. It is soothing, relaxing, and youthful.  When I look at the majestic Douglas Fir trees surrounding my house and beyond, or the manicured sea of green grass in the backyard, new bu

Jeans for Spring 2021

  Vi br ant Hues Pixabay - No Attribution Required The sun is out, birds are singing, and Spring is here.  I spent the day in the yard cutting back plants, grasses, and ferns in preparation for the new, glorious, and riotous growth.   The bounty is always stunning with an array of colors.  Later in the Spring, I will fill my pots with hues that add to the décor of the backyard and deck.  Yes, Jeans Please? What does this have to do with jeans in rainbow tones?  Well, the world is filled with beauty.  You must look for it and when you do sigh with delight.  Recently, my favorite celebrity diva, Suzanne Somers, was wearing and rocking skinny orange jeans with black pumps on one of her weekly Facebook videos.  Which, of course, were stunning on her.  Orange jeans are the perfect signal that springtime has officially arrived.   Of course, she is in desert and it is a bit warmer.  However, our day in the heat, will soon be here in the Pacific Northwest.  Right now, is the moment, to pull o
