It’s Almost Here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

 

Anniversary Sale 2014 Early Access Catalog

 

I hate to use the dreaded F word, you know, FALL, but believe it or not it isn’t that far away. Clothing suppliers operate on their own calendar and we are pretty much forced to follow in order to get the best picks. For example, try getting your size in a pair of shorts in August. Good luck, as they will be in short, no pun intended, supply. Retailers start stocking shorts as early as March and by July most summer items have been moved to the clearance section. So as much as I can’t stand thinking about cashmere just yet, it would be foolish and irresponsible of me to not remind you all that this Friday starts the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This isn’t just any sale. This sale is different because the launch brand new items for fall at heavily discounted prices. I’m talking like 40% off the shoes that you will be wanting to wear this fall. But don’t get carried away just because you see deep discounts, you will need to have a game plan. Let this post be your guide of what I consider to be must have purchases at worth-it prices. Act quickly! Prices go up August 4th.

 

The Faux leather jacket from BLANKNYC. Everyone needs a motorcycle jacket to bring out their inner rocker chick or to balance out a feminine floral piece. It is the perfect topper to wear over summer tops and dresses to transition them into fall.

SALE PRICE $98.90, AFTER SALE $148.

Attilio Giusti Leombruni ballet flats and wedge shoes. More commonly referred to as AGL because 90% would butcher the heck out of the Italian name.Many of my clients have foot issues and they all swear by this brand for its consistent comfort. This is usually the shoe that most of my clients wear on a plane when traveling. Their colors are neutral and metallic so you can’t really go wrong no matter which ones you choose. They are pricey so nabbing them on sale is worth it.

 BALLET FLATS SALE PRICE $199.90, WILL BE $325

OVAL WEDGE $229.90, AFTER $365.

Cashmere sweaters. Can we all remember the tortuous winter we just went through? I would have worn a cashmere snuggie just to stay warm. These sweaters are available now for under $100. Buy some basic colors like black and ivory and maybe one fun pop of color. I also love the embellished sequins style. Hello! It’s a party on your sweater!!

SALE PRICE $84.90 – $98.90, AFTER $128 – $168.

Spanx Skinny Britches Mid-Thigh Shaper. This is the go-to shape wear for under skirts and dresses. The laser cut legs ensure you don’t get that tell-tale thigh bulge where the shaper ends.
