Happy Fashion Friday, friends! Today, I have a guest post for you from the lovely Amy. She recently scored some great deals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so we both thought it would be fun to share with you all on Fashion Friday…maybe you’ll even get some inspiration for your next day of shopping?
The Anniversary Sale officially hits stores on July 15th, unless you’re a cardholder, and in that case, go check it out now!
Hi Everyone! I’m Amy and I blog at My Life as a Lazy Girl. I’m new to the blogging world and I blog about my life and living the lazy yet successful way! I’m so excited to be doing a guest post for Courtney, she’s one of my fav bloggers! And her cupcake recipes are AMAZING, but I’m sure you already know that!
One of my favorite pastimes is shopping. Some would say I have a problem, but I consider it a strength. I equate it with the high after a good workout, which I’m sure you all can relate to. When I’m shopping and I find a great deal or an item that’s a must have and difficult to find, it makes my whole day better.
My favorite store, hands down, is Nordstrom. Their customer service is unparalleled in the retail industry. Every year around the beginning to mid July Nordstrom has their Anniversary Sale. They offer merchandise from their Fall collections at really good prices, and they even offer pre-sale for Nordstrom credit card holders.
When going to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, you should really do some research. I checked out the catalog online to get an idea of what would be available. (I’m a grad student on a budget, so I had to limit my purchases.) I knew going in that there was a lot I wanted to check out…
So now on to the good stuff, what I actually bought! We started in the accessory section and that’s definitely where I did the most damage!
Michael Kors Wallet, the perfect gift for my BFF. It retailed for $130 and I got it for $85. Quite a steal!
Michael Kors Sunglasses. I couldn’t resist the fun blue color, especially since I have a lot of other accessories in that color. They retail for around $85 and I got them for $56.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Rose Gold Watch (my favorite purchase of the day). It retails for $275 and I got it for $185.
Rose Gold Colored Hoop Earrings, to go along with the watch. Normally $32, on sale for $20.
My next stop was the t.b.d. section and the designer jeans. They didn’t have any Citizens that I wanted, but the awesome sales girl, Tara, convinced me to try on Joes Jeans.
I’m very loyal to my Citizens but OMG Joes were amazing! They only had one pair on the sale so of course I snatch them up. These black skinny jeans are super comfortable and fit GREAT (especially if you have a ‘lil junk in the truck like me!). The Joes Jeans were normally $179 and I got them for $99. Such a steal!
Next up was workout clothes…
Nike Dry-Fit Shirt in black, normally $35, on sale for $23.
Nike Running Shorts, normally $28, on sale for $20.
Zella Capris, normally $44, on sale for $29.
I have fallen in love with the Zella brand. They’re super comfortable and thick, without being hot.
Zella Headband (my last purchase), normally $12, on sale for $8. I’m always looking for new workout headbands that don’t give me a headache and I’m looking forward to trying this one out. It has silicon on the inside to help hold it in place and it’s made out of a very breathable fabric.
If you’re near a Nordstrom definitely go check out their Anniversary Sale when it hits stores July 15. If you have a Nordstrom Credit Card, go pre-sale NOW! It’s totally worth it and I’m super happy with all my purchases!
Hope you all enjoyed my guest post! Feel free to stop by and check out my blog anytime! And a big thanks to Courtney for letting me guest post today!
