Oh my goodness…the Nordstrom anniversary sale this year is bananas! I thought last years sale was good but I’m thinking I like this year the best. I started organizing all the items I’m keeping and it’s WAY MORE than I anticipated. If you like something and it’s sold out, don’t lose hope because based on previous years, there was plenty of inventory after the sale and the sometimes the price was even cheaper. Also, some items are being restocked periodically. Be sure to check out my top 25 picks HERE, public access sale picks HERE, part one reviews HERE and part two reviews HERE.
Cardigan: Chelsea28 ruffle cardigan (size XXS, comes in gray) | Tee: BP. ruffle sleeve twist hem tee (size XXS) | Jeans: Topshop Jamie step hem skinny jeans (size 25×28, fits like size 24 in US brands) | Shoes: Kristin Cavallari lash split shaft bootie
Item: Chelsea28 ruffle cardigan (size XXS)
Fit/Review: Sizing runs large. I’m wearing size XXS and it’s definitely a relaxed fit. I love the ruffle back detail – so cute. I got both the ivory and gray and will keep one color. Sleeves are long on me but that’s typical for non-petite sizes. I like it and would recommend.
was $89, on sale for $59.90
Item: Kristin Cavallari lash split shaft bootie (in camel)
Sizing: Runs about 1/2 size small. I’m wearing my normal size 5 and they fit perfectly. Comes in three colors. The stacked 3 1/2″ heel is just the right amount of height and very comfortable. I didn’t think I would like the split shaft but I don’t mind them and it makes it easy for me to take on and off. The suede is very soft and looks great with jeans. This is my 2nd pair of Kristin Cavallari shoes and I’m pretty impressed! I also have THESE and love them.
was $159.95, on sale for $99.90
Item: J.Crew ruffle sleeve tee (size XXS)
Sizing/Review: Sizing runs small. I’m wearing size XXS and it fits similar to a 00 petite. Love the fit, it’s not boxy and tucks in nicely with jeans. Stripes, ruffle sleeves, fits nicely and on sale – umm..yes.
as $49.50, on sale for $32.90
Item: O’Neill arlow plaid not front shirt (size XS)
Fit/Review: Sizing runs big and the original way they had it knotted was awkward and loose. I retied it and made it as fitted as possible but it still looks big. Sleeves are long and baggy. Has potential but just didn’t do anything for me.
Was $54, on sale for $35.90 (still pretty expensive for a plaid shirt like this)
Boots: Vionic Talia Boots
Fit/Review: Sizing runs true to size. I took my normal size 5 and the foot area fits fine however the circumference is HUGE. I could fit both of my hands down the side of each boot. It says the cirucumference is 14″ online….liiiiies! It’s more like 18″ or something crazy (sorry didn’t have time to measure exactly). The shaft is about right at 15″ – hits me at the knees (still too tall). The leather is surprisingly not stiff but feels cheap. Love the stacked 2″ heel – perfect height. Disappointed and the search continues for the perfect pair of leather boots.
was $249.95, on sale for $149.96
Cardigan: Halogen long open front cardigan (size XXSP) | Tee: BP. ruffle sleeve twist hem tee (size XXS) | Jeans: Topshop Jamie step hem skinny jeans (size 25×28, fits like size 24 in US brands) | Shoes: Kristin Cavallari lash split shaft bootie
Item: Halogen long open front cardigan (size XXSP)
Fit/Review: Sizing runs large. I’m wearing my usual size XXSP in this brand and it was huge. I love Halogen and their sizing usually fits me nicely but this one was a total bust. I know it’s supposed to be a “long” cardigan but omg it’s way too long even in petite sizes.
was $89, on sale for $59.90
Just wanted to let you know – this Tory Burch Small Marsden Leather Tote is now back in stock in the NUT color! It keeps selling out so get this color for fall while you can. I only bought two handbags from the #nsale would highly recommend this one!
was $498, on sale for $322.90
Fit/Review: Sizing runs very small so I’d recommend sizing up. Tophop jeans are cut smaller and more narrow through the legs and thighs. They are one of my favorite brands for petite denim. I’m wearing size 25×28 in petites which fits like a size 24 in US brands. I love everything about these jeans. The dark wash, cut, and high waist is so flattering and slimming. The inseam is perfect and looks great with sandals, mules and booties. Normally step hem jeans can be a little tricky to wear with shoes if the back hem is too long. I highly recommend these.
was $75, on sale for $49.90
