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.
Forever Chic Style - Hot, Hot, Hot
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.

"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.

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.

"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.
