nordstrom anniversary sale 2018 reviews

Are you overwhelmed by the Nordstrom anniversary sale?  This year is more intense than any other year!  There’s so much hype built around it and now there’s a million more bloggers promoting the sale that it’s almost too much.  In case you missed it, see all my sale picks HERE.  At least Nordstrom didn’t lose my packages like they did last year.  I ordered too much and I’m keeping way more than I should..lol This is just round one of my reviews.

pink long cardigan striped pocket tee blush pink mules casual outfit

Cardigan: Leith ribbed shawl cocoon cardigan (size XXS) | Tee: Madewell pocket tee (size XXS) | BP. ripped high waisted jeans (size 24) | Shoes: BP. open toe mules

Item: Leith ribbed shawl cocoon cardigan

Sizing: Sizing runs large.  I’d recommend sizing down if possible.  I’m wearing XXS and it’s generous and the length is pretty long on me.

Price: Was $69, on sale for $49.90

Item: BP. ripped high waisted jeans

Sizing: Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing my normal size 24.  Fits comfortably without being skin tight and the crotch area is NOT baggy (biggest pet peeve).  Inseam measures 27″ and pretty decent considering it’s not petite sizing. I only have to cuff up once when worn with mules.

Price: Was $65, on sale for $42.90

blush mules distressed jeans nuloom rug

 BP. ripped high waisted jeans (size 24) | Shoes: BP. open toe mules

Item: BP. open toe mules

Sizing: Runs true to size and I’m wearing my normal size 5.  Fits comfortably as far as I can tell.  I haven’t officially worn them out yet. I usually have issues with my feet sliding with mules but my feet actually stay put which is a major plus!

Price: was $79.95, on sale $49.90

gray convertible wrap cardigan cognac crossbody fall outfit

Sweater: Gibson  | Tank: H&M (similar HERE) | Purse: Tory Burch | Pants: Ann Taylor (similar HERE) | Boots: BP. (old)

Item: Gibson convertible fleece wrap cardigan

Sizing: Runs on the larger side.  I’m wearing XXSP and it’s a very relaxed fit which I like.  This style is not mean to be worn fitted.  I have a similar sweater from a few years ago that I wore all the time.  Love this style.  The back covers your rear so you can wear with leggings and OTK boots for fall.

Price: was $68, on sale $45.90

striped pocket tee cognac cross body high waisted jeans

Tee: Madewell pocket tee (size XXS) | BP. ripped high waisted jeans (size 24) | Purse: Tory Burch

Item: Tory Burch small Marsden leather tote (in nut)

Review: This is my new favorite bag!  The leather is buttery soft yet it still has a structured shape.  I love the that you it doubles as a cross body and has an adjustable strap.  No need to punch extra holes if you’re petite.  I wear it on the very last hole and it’s the perfect length.  It has dual compartments with a center zip compartment.  It’s considered a smaller bag but I think it’s a great size!  Measures 9″W x 7 ¾”H x 3 ½”D.

Price: was $498, on sale $322.90

white jeans petite friendly OTK over the knee boots pink wrap cardigan

Sweater: Gibon convertible wrap cardigan (XXSP) | Jeans: Topshop (size 24×28, size up) | Boots: Steve Madden OTK boots

Item: Gibson convertible fleece wrap cardigan

Sizing: Runs on the larger side.  I’m wearing XXSP and it’s a very relaxed fit which I like.  This style is not mean to be worn fitted.  I have a similar sweater from a few years ago that I wore all the time.  Love this style.  The back covers your rear so you can wear with leggings and OTK boots for fall. Can’t decide which color I like better!

Price: was $68, on sale $45.90

petite friendly over the knee boots white jeans pink cardigan

Item: Steve Madden Brinkley over the knee stretch boots

Sizing: If you have small thighs or calves, these boots run VERY SMALL!  I could barely get them to stretch over my jeans.  They will look much better with skirts and dresses.  The calf circumference measures 14″ which is great for gals with narrow calves.  Shaft height measures 21.5″ – this is the perfect height for me and I have short legs.  Available in black and camel.  Love the lower 2″ heel – will be great for walking.  FYI – the camel is slightly lighter that what it appears like in my photo – the lighting was so bad when I took these so keep that in mind!

Price: was $129.95, on sale $86.90

open toe sandals petite jeans striped sweatshirt fall outfit

Sandals: Vince Camuto kentvi sandals | Jeans: AG The Legging raw hem skinny ankle jeans (size 24) | Sweatshirt: Caslon cowl neck sweatshirt (size XXSP) | Rug: NuLoom

Item: Vince Camuto kentvi sandals (french taupe suede)

Sizing: Sizing runs small so I’d recommend sizing up 1/2 size.  You know I have mad love for Vince Camuto shoes so I was not surprised that I ended up really loving these.  The color is actually lighter than what you see in my photos – it was very poor lighting when I took these.  It’s way prettier and more neutral in real life.  Will pair with basically everything!  You can wear these now and in the fall.  Very comfortable and definitely recommend.

Price: was $129.95, on sale $86.90

camel scarf white peplum tee ankle booties fall outfit

Top: Caslon peplum top (size XXSP) | Jeans: Kut from the Kloth (size 00) | Scarf: Halogen cashmere scarf | Shoes: Vince Camuto Movinta Bootie

Item: Caslon peplum top (in ivory cloud)

Sizing: Sizing runs very large!  I was a bit disappointed at how big it was and I’m wearing XXSP.  I usually love the fit of this brand but they missed the mark on this on. 🙁  The material is thin and see-through.  Very basic top and the asymmetrical hem was just awkward.  I think there’s way cuter tops and the price isn’t that great.

Price: was $49, on sale $32.90

Item: Kut from the Kloth Donna release hem ankle skinny jeans

Sizing: Sizing runs true to size.  I’m trying on size 00 and it fits nicely.  I actually didn’t see petite sizing when I placed my order so now I’m a bit annoyed.  The inseam on the petite sizes would have been much better.  I had to cuff these jeans up twice just to show the dip of the booties.  I like the wash and minimal distressing but I probably won’t keep these.

 Price: was $89.50, on sale $59.90

Item: Halogen cashmere scarf (in tan indochine heather)

Review: I’m not even sure what possessed me to order this because it’s so expensive for a scarf.  I love cashmere but this is not worth it.  I’d rather use the money towards something else.  Available in seven colors but love the tan color the best.

 Price: was $149, on sale $98.90

Item: Vince Camuto Movinta Bootie (in tree house suede)

Sizing: These run really small and narrow.  I thought I would love these but they are a bit too pointy for me.  I love my Vince Camuto Franell booties way better.  Plus my feet hurt as soon as I put them on so that’s usually not a good sign.

 Price: was $149.95, on sale $99.90

wrap cardigan ag jeans open toe booties casual fall outfit

Sweater: Leith ribbed wrap sweater (size XXS) | Jeans: AG The Legging raw hem skinny ankle jeans (size 24) | Sandals: Vince Camuto kentvi sandals

Item: Leith ribbed wrap sweater

Sizing: Runs large.  I’m waring XXS and there was plenty of room everywhere – not flattering on me.  Could look really classy on someone else but didn’t do it for me.  Comes in five colors.  This is a great option for nursing moms!

 Price: was $59, on sale $39.90

Item: AG The Legging raw hem skinny ankle jeans

Sizing: Sizing runs true to size.  I love AG Jeans and if there’s a designer pair that I will spend money on, this is definitely one of the few.  I don’t know what it is about their denim but they always look and feel amazing.  I’m not a huge fan of the raw hem but it’s nice that I can cut off the length and not have to worry about alterations.  AG Jeans always run long but they are very slimming through the legs.

 Price: was $225, on sale $149.90

striped cowl neck sweatshirt casual outfit weekend style

Sweatshirt: Caslon cowl neck sweatshirt (size XXSP) | Jeans: AG The Legging raw hem skinny ankle jeans (size 24) | Sandals: Vince Camuto kentvi sandals

Item: Caslon cowl neck sweatshirt

Sizing: Sizing runs large.  I’m wearing XXSP and it’s a very relaxed fit which I don’t mind.  The material is super soft and comfortable.  Length is great and yes it covers your behind.

 Price: was $59, on sale $39.90
