I already posted about my picks for shoes and clothing earlier, but I saw so many great picks for winter during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (early access for now, regular access opens July 22 – August 7) that I just had to post again. Many of these are actually items I own that are my favorite pieces for fall/winter, so I’m pretty excited that some are majorly marked down. I’m even considering getting some of these repeat items in different new colors…
One of my favorite pieces that I wanted to highlight is the BlankNYC Faux Leather jacket, which runs on the small side but fits petites like a glove. I bought it full price in black a year ago and it is probably my most often worn jacket during fall and transition to winter. I’ve dressed it up, dressed it down, worn it apple picking and even to a wedding. Right now the brown and oxblood colors are on sale for less than $65, which is a great deal. Some people are bothered by the shoulder pads which are on the bulky side, but I’ve never felt it was a problem. I was tempted to purchase the same jacket in brown again today, but I splurged and got the Trouve Drape Front leather jacket in brown saddle instead, since I love the feminine loose collar.
I also love plaid scarves; it basically feels like I can wrap my bedding around me while I walk around the cold streets of NYC. This plaid square scarf is on sale now for only $18, a steal since I usually pay over $40 for mine.
The double breasted peacoat from Thread & Supply is on sale again for $38, which is possibly the best deal you could get for a peacoat from Nordstrom’s. I have this coat in forest green from last season, and it is roomy enough to wear several layers underneath. The material is a bit on the thin side, so it’s a good coat for fall or over a sweater in the winter.
I mentioned this in the last post but I’ve also been on a hunt for petite friendly over the knee boots. I purchased the Halogen ‘Noble’ OTK boot in black and the Steve Madden ‘Gleemer’ thigh high boot in taupe for comparison. We will see how far up on the leg they actually go.
I also ordered this BP Faux Leather Drawstring tote in both cognac and taupe for me and my mom. It looks like a sturdy work bag that has a drawstring closure to keep my items secure. The design and drawstring remind me of a good friend’s gorgeous Celine Cabas Phantom tote, which I would hesitate to bring into a hospital environment on a daily basis.
Would love to hear what you’re picking up and finding at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so far! I definitely did some damage today. If you’re not a cardholder, don’t worry, you can get all your items starting 7/22 – 8/7. I’ll have some more pictures by then of how some of the items I’m ordering fit me, and will post those as they come in. Happy shopping!
