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!




Alicia Silverstone - Clueless (1995)



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)


"The details are not the details. They make the design." - Charles Eames


_______


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





Gorjana - 'Thea' Wrap Stand Necklace


"Everyday is a fashion show and the world is a runway"  - Coco Chanel

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




Gigi Hadid - Rebecca Minkoff - Crossbody



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!"

Happy Shopping!

Monday's Favorite Things - Sunglasses

What I Love This Week - Ray-Ban Sunglasses




My well-loved polarized Ray-Bans are scratched from constant wearing and setting them down.  Apparently, I should have put them in their case more than I did.  One day while driving, I noticed that the scratches on the lens were bothering me.  Upon a recent trip to my favorite store, I spotted a new pair of shades. 
I tried them on and the rest is history.   I love these retro sunglasses.  They fit perfectly and have the polarization that is a must.  Why?  A glass surface is horizontal, the light reflects horizontally.   With polarized sunglasses, the surface filters out the horizontal light waves and protects from harmful UV rays.
For example, wear a pair of sunglasses without polarization and investigate a river or lake.  You will not see the fish swimming clearly.  With polarized sunglasses you can see the fish with an eagle eye.  Thus, my fascination with wearing only polarized lenses. 
By the way, I wear sunglasses year-round protecting from…

What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful



Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable.  Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments?  I personally love this scent.  And, yes others do comment.  
The name of the perfume constantly reminds me that life is indeed beautiful.  Life is a gift.  It is to be cherished and and should be enjoyed.  Don't let Negative Nelly'sAngry Annie's or Righteous Rita's ruin your day. Avoid those that do not lift your spirits or make you smile.  Seek out laughter with others either online or in-person. 
Spritz on your favorite perfume.  Put on something pretty and start the day with the knowledge that your life choices and decisions matter.  You are special.   
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum  has floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. This perfume is for the woman who lives in the present and loves her life. …

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …
