The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in process for select card holders.  With the official sale open to the public on Monday, July 17th. 

Lately, many of my friends and I, have been debating on what we really need.  Are we shopping for our "fantasy" life?  Will we wear these pieces or will they sit in our closets?   Many of us love fashion and enjoy buying the newest and greatest item only to never wear it.  I, for one, am thinking about what I wear throughout the year.  It seems so wasteful to purchase when you do not need it. Everyone always says "It isn't about what you need, it is about what you want."  This year I am content with my fashion world.  

I must note that it is important to have classic staples such as a stunning blazer or two, elegant pants, statement blouses, the little black dress and quality pumps.  After all, if you are working, in the public eye or meeting friends for cocktails, the classics are always on point.  Thus, I love to share what will make you elegant, feel wonderful and help exude confidence with your apparel.  

Three Goals of the Nordstrom Sale

  1.     Chose Investment Pieces.  For example, a wool coat, leather coat or boot.  Something high end that you will wear often. 
  2.     Chose Basics.  Bras, lingerie, underwear and socks.
  3.     Chose What You Need.  Do not go crazy at the sale.  If you need mascara, lipstick or something along this vein - check out what is on sale. 

I have received the Nordstrom catalog and viewed items online.  Thus, my selections tend to lean towards classic purchases.  Additionally, the popular items will sell out quickly.  Add to your Wish List and be ready to order on July 17th.  Finally, I do not receive a small affiliate commission for this article. 

My Top Selections

Veronica Beard - Houndstooth

Veronica Beard Diego Metallic Cotton Blend Tweed Dicky Jacket:  This divine jacket is from one of my favorite designers.  Their jackets are high quality, well-constructed and fit beautifully.  The Veronica Beard Diego Metallic Cotton Blend Tweed Dicky Jacket is in a blue/pinegrove hue with a slight sparkle.   The back is cropped.  This piece reminds me of a houndstooth jacket I owned in the 90's.  You can dress it up with a black pencil skirt or wear with jeans and boots. 

Reiss - Timeless & Classic Blazer

Reiss Laura Double Breasted Wool Blend Blazer:  If you are looking for a classic and timeless black blazer, look no further.  This twill blazer with six faux-horn buttons is a show stopper.  Reiss is a high end designer and crafts exceptional pieces.  You will not be disappointed.  The sale price is perfect especially for a blazer that will last for a long time.  

Good American - Leather Jacket - Faux Leather

Good American Sculpted Faux Leather Jacket:  This fitted number is bound to be a show stopper.   A definite must at the right price point. 

Lauren Ralph Lauren - The Trench

Lauren Ralph Lauren Belted Cotton Gaberdine Trench Coat: This cotton blend gaberdine trench coat is water resistant, double-breasted with a cinched waist is perfection.  The trench screams elegant and refined. 

Pikolinos - Best Boots

Pikolinos Vicar Boot: I bought these boots at last years sale. They are sturdy, comfortable and constructed with soft leather.  I  love mine. 

AGL Pumps - Must Own

AGL Stefy Block Heel Pointed Toe Pump: AGL pumps are stylish and comfortable.  You cannot go wrong.  These are timeless and go with everything in your closet. 

Nordstrom - Cashmere Sweater

Nordstrom Funnel Neck Cashmere Sweater: A quality cashmere sweater is important for the chilly fall and winter nights.  This one fits the bill.  I like the color too. 

L'agence - Jeans, Jeans, Jeans

L'agence Marty Flare Jeans:  These are fitted, flattering with a flare at the bottom.  If you need a pair of jeans with a twist, these are them.  

Have fun shopping.  It is always exciting to grab a coffee, walk around and check out the clothing, beauty items and so much more in person.  Enjoy. 

That's a Wrap!

Until Next Time,
