It's the best time of the year...the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! As a kid I lived for back to school shopping, now I did enjoy school, but I loved picking out all of my new clothes way more. The Nordstrom Sale rivals that feeling for me. It's back to school shopping sans homework. For me its a win-win. Nordstrom's sale has something for everyone- beauty products, accessories, shoes, and great designer items. I wanted to talk about some of the great items that are up for grabs. Without further ado....


Flats have become a major part of my shoe life. I love the fact that I do not have to sacrifice comfort for style. Working in NYC, the streets are not the best when you want to walk around in heels, but flats can get the job done. First up, is the Vince Camuto Empa Flat. It comes 4 colors (black, grey, wine, and putty patent). I went with the grey because it looks so good against my skin.  I will be wearing these with my skinny ankle pants, graphic tee, and a blazer all fall. Next up we have the Louise et Cie Barry Ankle Strap Flat. These are soo stinking cute!! I love me some animal print, so when I saw these in the catalog I fell in love. These will be my go to with dresses and skirts so I can show off the ankle strap. The last of my shoe purchases is the Halogen Olson flat in Stingray Black. I love the texture and studs on these. They are soo roomy. My feet are a little on the wide side, so anytime I am shopping for shoes, my first concern is fit. All of these shoes are available online and in stores, so if you get a chance try them and let me know what you think. 


Nordstrom's plus size section is the best out of all of the department stores. There is not only their private label Sejour, but they also carry City Chic, Eloquii, Vince Camuto, and a plethora of other great brands. If you have not checked out the plus size lookbook, here it is. There are so many great items. Besides being a denim addict, I am also a leather (faux or real) addict as well. For my leather fix, I went with Sejour's Leather Detail Dress in burgandy. The collar and bodice are made of real leather. What sold me on the dress was the fact that it was offered in another color besides black. Don't get me wrong, black is great, but I love it when I have a choice. I bought the dress in a 16, and it fits great. I love the color, and what's best of all it has pockets!! Definite must have. I also bought Eloquii's Faux Leather Culottes. When these were first on Eloquii's site, I waited because NYC was freezing, and my size sold out. I was excited that I was given a second chance, and I was not missing out on them. I went with a 16, and as you can see these fit great. 

There are so many other great items that are up for grabs. If you are in the need for new jeans, there are some from NYDJ, Halogen, Wit & Wisdom, and Kut from the Kloth. The outerwear this season is cool- there's parka's, fur coats, and cute vests. The workout gear has some cool reversible pants and jackets. Definitely head to Nordstrom and check out their Anniversary Sale before the prices go up on August 3rd.
