#NSALE | Try On & Fitting Room Pics

Friday, July 22, 2016



I hit up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this morning and it was quite possibly the best shopping experience of my life.  I made an appointment with the Style Sales Manager and she was a dream to work with.  I got there bright and early, she pulled all the items I had on my wish list, plus more, and set me up in a fitting room.

I did a couple laps around the store, collecting a few more pieces, and then it was time to try it all on. I would love to share with you a bit of a photo overload from the fitting room, but also how these pieces fit so you can shop them yourself!

I will share a full post about everything I purchased and if you're here early want to add me to Snapchat, you can see me trying all of these things on (I'm acoest1984).  Onto the fitting room recap!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE SHOPPING DAY

Friday, July 22, 2016




It's here!  It's here!  Today is the day the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens up to the public.  I will be heading to there to scoop up all the goodies I've been eyeing since the early access sneak peek became available.   Here's everything you need to know to shop the sale:


THE BREAKDOWN

The #Nsale is an annual sale where tons of new, Fall merchandise is super marked down.  It's the chance to grab new trends and pieces for the upcoming season, at discounted pricing.  Prices go back up on August 8th.  


INCLUDED

Hundreds of items for women, men, kids, beauty and home.  While some items get restocked, once they sell out, most are gone until prices go back up.


MY PICKS

I shared my clothing picks earlier this week (here are last year's picks), but for the home I'm loving this rose gold cocktail shaker, this marble/wood cutting board & I'm really drawn to this duvet set.



I will be sharing my shopping experience on Snapchat, so follow along if you'd like, I'm acoest1984.  I'll be back with a recap of everything I tried on, how it fit and more to help you shop.  I'm so excited, I hope you are too!


Happy Friday!





MINI DESIGNER HAUL

Thursday, July 21, 2016



Today I'm sharing a mini designer haul.  As I mention in the video, I don't buy a ton of designer pieces, but as I've gotten older, I've started to invest in things I really love.  A lot of thought goes into these purchases, and they are never made on a whim--although that would be fun, wouldn't it?--and they are always pieces I have debated for some time.

I find that the majority of any big purchases I make are pieces I can foresee myself wearing for several years to come, often in neutral colours, and I would be lying if I didn't say finding these things on sale doesn't get me excited.

So with that, a mini designer haul of a few pieces I've splurged on this Spring/Summer.  As always, thanks for watching! xo



BLACK FRINGE KIMONO & LACE UP HEELS

Wednesday, July 20, 2016


O U T F I T  D E T A I L S  :  F21 BLACK KIMONO (SIMILAR, SIMILAR)  |  RUFFLE CAMI (LOVE THIS)  |  BLACK SKINNIES (LOVE THESE)  |  FAUX SUEDE CHOKER NECKLACE  |  LACE UP HEELS  |  BAG (BUDGET FRIENDLY OPTION)

If you girls didn't notice, I'm loving kimonos this year.  I started adding them to my closet last year, but this is seriously the year of the kimono for me!  They are so versatile, great for a business casual work environment, and obviously on weekends.  Blazers never quite fit me right, so a kimono is the perfect piece to offer coverage and add style.

Let's talk about the shoes--I scooped these up back in June after lusting after them for months and they are now super on sale!  They also come in black and red--but I find they run a little big, so I would suggest sizing down.



My Picks | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Monday, July 18, 2016



The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here and early access started on Friday.  If you girls live in the US, you can sign up for the debit or credit card and shop the sale immediately.  If you're in Canada, like myself, or other parts of the world, the sale opens to the public this Friday, July 22.

Essentially, this sale is the biggest of the year where Nordstrom marks down all their new Fall gear for three weeks.  After that, they go back up to regular price until the snow flies, ie. the time to shop is now!  While I know you have sunshine, swimming and patio-season on your mind, the cool weather will be here before we know it and you'll be glad you scored some awesome stuff at such great prices.

That said, I'm sharing my favourite picks from the sale and will be sharing even more as the sale goes on.  I've actually asked my Sales Manager at my local Nordstrom to set a few things aside for my appointment on Friday so I don't miss out, like this suede moto jacket (which has already sold out twice online and been restocked), this bralette, and this drape front vest (love this splurge option).

Happy shopping!
