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. 





Natori 'Pure Luxe' Underwire T-Shirt Bra (Black, Blue Spruce, Cafe, Merlot, & Toffee)

_______


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




Gorjana - 'Thea'  Collar Necklace

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!"

If you are Nordstrom card holder - do not be late to the party!   Check out online and visit in-store.  Nordstrom Anniversary Pre-Sale continues through the 21st.   The public can shop July 22nd through August 7th.  The prices go up on August 8th.  






Happy Shopping!

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

  First Glance Patience & Manners Please It is that time of year once again for the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale .   Currently, you can preview the upcoming sale online.  This allows you to create a  "Wish List."   If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop early.  For instance, Icon status begins on Monday, July 12th.  Check online for your start date.  The Nordstrom sale will open fully to everyone on Wednesday, July 28th .    Zen Master "Some people forget that kindness and manners are free."   A couple of comments before we discuss on what will sell out quickly.   Since the country is opening up after a year and half of shutdowns due to Covid 19 pandemic , it is imperative that you access your skills at being patient.  Lately, I have noticed that many are impatient in their cars, public transportation (ferries for me), and in public places where businesses and restaurants are struggling to serve and be open.  The rude behaviors and lack of manners has been

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
