The pre-sale for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale comes to an end in a couple of days! The sale will open up to the public starting July 22nd with prices going back up on August 8th. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed when my wish list did not amount to much on sale when the pre-sale began. How about you? Did your wish list end up on sale? With that said, I still went ahead with a couple of buys from my list (I could not live without that capelet!) and I was happy to see that while some of my specific picks were not on sale, a lot of the brands I love still were. I also wanted to take advantage of home and beauty buys once the sale started and I thought there were some great discounts in these areas!
By far, my favorite department to shop this sale is in coats and jackets! There is still a great selection of styles available and if you do not already own a faux leather jacket, go for this one from BLANKNYC. I already have professed my love for their denim line and now I am in LOVE with this number. Black is always a good staple to have in your closet but it also comes in dark green which is to die for!
Yay to Hunter boots on sale! This brand is a great buy with a nice selection of styles marked down. As mentioned on the last blog post, these boots are great for three seasons as you can add a fuzzy liner sock to them in the winter. In other shoes, I love these lace-up flats from Halogen which come in six different colors with plenty of sizes still available (similar and $10 less than the Steve Madden’s I listed on my previous post!).
A really nice assortment of Rebecca Minkoff bags went on sale. This blue satchel is over $100 off its original price and the denim color is great for all year round (comes in whiskey too!). The last piece of clothing on this collage I probably would not have picked out from the picture on-line alone, but when I did hit my local Nordstrom’s this past weekend, I fell in love with it. This grey sweater is so soft and cozy (and under $40!) and I cannot wait to wear it this fall!
For the home, I already have these Jonathan Adler zebra porcelain stacking dishes but not in navy! For $15 they make a great hostess gift! I am addicted to throw blankets and appreciated the fact that this one from Pendleton was made from eco-friendly wool. Comes in another color option too! I am always looking for ways to hide and organize the clutter around my house and I really like these straw baskets for magazine and dog toy storage. They come in three different colors-including navy!
In beauty, if you do not already own a Clarisonic cleansing system then get one! It is a daily routine necessity (I use their softest brush option) for deep cleaning your pores and getting rid of dead skin cells. The system is originally $129 but during the sale, the price has been reduced to $89! In make-up, I found this Bobbi Brown blush set which is good for an everyday and natural look-I think this palette is very complimentary to most skin tones! Finally, for the best buy on this list, I love this trio of rose salve lip balm-great to have on hand in your purse or fun little stocking stuffers!
Items are selling out a rapid speed. At the writing of this post (this morning!), I made sure these items were still in stock with good selections and sizes left. I wish I could promise and guarantee everything will be available upon publish but that may not be the case!

Thanks for stopping by!
