Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Hits and Misses (Part 1)

 ASTR Floral High Neck Wide Leg Jumpsuit [$78.00 —-> $51.90]
Wearing size small — Fits TTS

I love everything about this jumpsuit. The print is so fun and the fit is so flattering! It’s the perfect summer to fall transition item because it can easily be worn by itself or look just as good with a leather jacket thrown over it.

ASTR Lace Inset Body-Con Dress [$68.00 —-> $44.90]

Wearing size small — Runs one size small (Would size up to a medium)

I loved this dress when I saw it on the hanger but after trying it on I wasn’t a huge fan. It’s very short and pretty revealing, I can’t think of many places I’d ever wear it besides in Vegas. It also runs small; I’m in a small here but could’ve easily sized up to medium.

Billabong ‘Heart Strayed’ Trapeze Dress [$54.95 —-> $34.90] 

Wearing size small — Fits TTS but would size up for length

I love the print and silhouette of this dress but unfortunately it was just too short on me. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone over 5’6″. For reference, I’m 5’8″.

BLANKNYC Quilted Faux Leather Moto Jacket in Oxblood [$98.00 —-> $63.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

BP. Stripe Hi/Low Tee [$18.00 —-> $12.90] Solid colors available here, Wearing size small — Fits TTS

STS Blue ‘Piper’ Deconstructed Skinny Jeans [$59.00 —-> $38.90], Wearing juniors size 3 –Runs one size large

I’m so obsessed with this jacket. From the fit, to the color, to the zipper details…this jacket has it all! I didn’t intend to look for any skinny jeans during the sale but when I tried these ones on I was in love. I can’t believe they’re under $40!

BP. Plaid Shirt in Grey Steeple Whisper Plaid [$38.00 —-> $24.90]

Wearing size small — Fits TTS

I can’t say no to a good plaid shirt. Especially one that’s only $25! I love that the shirt is gray, black, and white because it can literally be worn with almost anything. Also, my shorts aren’t part of the sale but they’re from Nordstrom and only $34.00. You can purchase them here

BP. Stripe Slub Knit Pullover in Black Peat Western Stripe [$48.00 —-> $31.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

Levi’s ‘501 CT’ Cuffed Boyfriend Denim Shorts [$68.00 —-> $44.90] Wearing size 26 — Fits TTS

I absolutely love this striped knit sweater! It’s so comfy and long enough that it can be worn with leggings. I took this one home with me and can’t wait to purchase a few more colors.

 Leith Crepe Trapeze Dress in Pink Plumier [$59.00 —-> $38.90]
Wearing size small — Fits TTS

I was on the fence about this dress. I really liked the way it fit but I’m not a huge fan of crepe material. Also, this color is darker in person than it appears online. It looks like it’s a hot pink on the Nordstrom website but is more a dark fuchsia.

Lush Tank in Ivory [$34.00 —-> $20.40] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

Leith Lace Trim Skirt [$58.00 —-> $37.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

So this tank top isn’t part of the official Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but it’s still on sale and I’m in love with it so I included it. It comes in multiple colors and the fit is perfect. It’s also made by the same brand as this popular tunic. I really loved this skirt but the one downside is that even though the length is appropriate for work, the large slit isn’t.

Leith Leopard Print Moto Jacket [$128.00 —-> $84.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

Leith Lace Trim Skirt [$58.00 —-> $37.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

Lush Tank in Ivory [$34.00 —-> $20.40] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

This fun leopard print moto jacket is one of my favorite items from the sale! I love that it can easily be thrown on over a basic shirt and jeans and completely transform the outfit. It’s definitely a must have from the sale and still available in most sizes!

BP. Stripe Hi/Low Tee [$18.00 —-> $12.90] Solid colors available here. Wearing size small — Fits TTS

Levi’s ‘501 CT’ Cuffed Boyfriend Denim Shorts [$68.00 —-> $44.90] Wearing size 26 — Fits TTS

To say that I’m obsessed with these boyfriend shorts would be an understatement. I love the wash and the fit is so flattering. A lot of boyfriend shorts I’ve tried on seem to just hang on me but this pair still manages to show off my curves. I also love this striped top, unfortunately it’s sold out but there are still plenty of solid colors available here

Lush ‘Karly’ Shirtdress [$48.00 —-> $31.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS but would size up for length

Another dress that I loved on the hanger but when I tried it on it was just too short. The sides of the dress are shorter than the front and back which would’ve been cute if it were just a few inches longer.

 Lush ‘Perfect’ Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic in Black [$42.00 —-> $27.90] Wearing XS — Runs one size large

STS Blue ‘Piper’ Deconstructed Skinny Jeans [$59.00 —-> $38.90] Wearing juniors size 3 — Runs one size large

I’m sure you’ve seen lots of people posting about this tunic from the sale — and for good reason! It’s great quality and the length is perfect. It’s long enough that it can be worn with leggings but also looks super cute half tucked into jeans like shown above. It also comes in a four more colors, found here. I sized down one size for this top, wearing an XS.

    I love seeing all the pieces in "real life" and hearing your reviews! Thanks for sharing!

      Absolutely! Sometimes it's hard to envision how the items are going to look in real life when they're being styled on 6 ft tall rail thin models lol

    That Faux Leather Jacket is perfect on you. I hope you got it!

    • July 22, 2015 / 5:02 pm

      I did! I love it so much that I'm seriously considering ordering it black too before the sale is over, lol.

    These are all great choices! I love the wine colored moto jacket and that jumpsuit the best! Everything looked amazing on you!

    Love this recap, I enjoy seeing the clothes on a real person versus a collage;) I almost bought that jumpsuit the other day and now I may have to go back and order it, the same goes for that oxblood jacket. Gorgeous!
