Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 - Take One - Hot Picks



Ready, Set & Click




"Happiness is not in money, but in shopping."  Marilyn Monroe




The annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins for Nordstrom cardholders next week on August 4th.  Depending on your level, you will be able to order prior to the actual start of the sale.   Your level is based on how much you spend at Nordstrom on a yearly basis.   Everyone NOW can view the online catalog at Nordstrom.com. 

For the first time, in my life, I will not be going in-store for the sale.  I am positive many like me will do the same. Ever since, I was in high school, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has been an exciting event for me.  Grab a coffee, meet a friend and purchase clothes. We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  

If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, everything stopped.  We are slowly coming back out and one day this way of life will be over.  Remain positive, upbeat and seek out the light. 


Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Open






In the meantime, treat everyone with respect and kindness.  It is probable that everyone may have a different opinion on the virus.  We are inundated with information daily that might be true or may not be true.  There is no "true" consensus as information changes rapidly with the evolution of the new virus.  Several of my friends have had it and are fine.  All were over the age of 59 and several with underlying conditions.  Be safe, thoughtful, and considerate.  Do not stop your life for fear of the unknown and instead embrace being practical and prudent.  Wear a mask.   

Most importantly, be kind to everyone.   If you do not like a situation, do not participate.  Walk away with grace.  After all, none of us have the answers nor do we know how this will all play out.  

We are being tested mentally and physically.  It is how you deal with each situation that will define who are in this world. Will we make mistakes? Absolutely.  Learn to apologize and move forward with poise.  Think of Audrey Hepburn.  What would Audrey do?  Become an Audrey in this life - A Queen of Kindness.





Carry on! Persevere!  Now for shopping the sale! Audrey did love clothes and remains a style icon today.

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
