Sale Sleuth’s #NSALE Round Up

Hello my lovely people!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opened up to the public online at 9:30am PST on July 19th, and you best believe I clicked “submit order” right when the clock struck 9:30am! I am also happy to report that I followed all of my own rules from my last post on how to stay on budget while shopping sales!

With it coming to an end soon, I wanted to take a minute to talk about what I purchased from the sale in more detail and be transparent about my thoughts on each item! Click the images to be directed to the Nordstrom website.

Good American Skinny Jeans – $112.90 on Sale (After Sale: $169.00)

These jeans are SO SOFT and STRETCHY! Any jeans of mine MUST be comfortable or else I will not wear them. I purchased a size 10, and unfortunately they were tighter than I normally wear, so I am going to either return them or exchange them for a size up. I thought long and hard about keeping them, but for $112.90 that would not be a good move for me personally (FYI I am used to buying the American Eagle jeans that are between $30-$60 on sale).

Sam Edelman Booties – $99.90 on Sale (After Sale: $159.95)

I have a pair of black leather pointy-toed booties that I wear every single day during the fall/winter, so I HAD to have these! I absolutely love the detail of the charm on the heel. They are super comfortable and the heel is such a great height for those of us who are taller/can’t walk in heels well! 🙂 True to size in my opinion!

Treasure & Bond Booties – $79.90 on Sale (After Sale: $119.95)

These boots are what dreams are made of, no exaggeration 😉 I LOVE Treasure & Bond, and actually was hesitant about buying them only because a lot of their products end up at the Rack. BUT since snakeskin booties are so trendy right now, I decided to go for it! These are a less expensive, yet still adorable, version of other popular finds during the NSALE. What a great way to try out a trend without breaking the bank!!! They also come in black, are super comfy and true to size! This heel is also a nice height as well!

Something Navy Wire Cat Eye Sunglasses – $38.90 on Sale (After Sale: $59.00)

I have been looking for a new pair of aviator style sunnies for a while now, and I love the cat eye look, so I thought I would try these out! And I actually love them. They are funky, but so fun! Very good quality too and they come with a magnetic sunglass case. I got them in gold, but they also come in silver! To be honest I am so cheap when it comes to sunglasses (I usually go for the $12 BP ones) so I would not pay full price for these, but the sale price is pretty great!

BP Cozy Joggers – $25.90 on Sale (After Sale: $39.00)

These are SO SOFT!!! I saw a few pairs of joggers that were popular for the NSALE, but the others were more than $30 and that hurt me to spend on something that I won’t probably wear out of the house. These were pushing it, but they are so comfy that I think I need them in my life forever. They are thin, but not see through. I ordered a size up for the comfy/cozy/lounge feel, but are true to size.

BP Squareneck Long Sleeve Bodysuit – $15.90 on Sale (After Sale: $25.00)

Bodysuits are so popular right now! I only had one so I wanted to get another (well…I bought two more :P) and love the color of it! I think this will be a fall staple for sure. I kind of went against my “only buy BP at the Rack and not the main store” rule on this, but at this price I am not sure how much lower it would even go anyway! I also bought a BP black tank bodysuit, but it was not for the NSALE yet SUPER inexpensive. Love them both!

Here are a few more items that I ordered but am still waiting on! I will update this post with my reviews once I receive them!

Blondo Georgette Waterproof Hidden Wedge Sneaker – $79.90 on Sale (After Sale: $119.95)

I actually bought these in tan and black because I have been wanting these forever! Blondos are a must in Seattle where it rains so much!

Steve Madden Feather Studded Loafer – $59.90 on Sale (After Sale: $89.95)

It looks like these are sold out of the snakeskin pattern, but they are still available in other colors! I would honestly recommend waiting to purchase the other colors, though, as Steve Madden typically ends up at the Rack.

Well that is all, folks! I hope that this information helps you decide on any last chance sale purchases you will make!! Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below, or feel free to message me!

With love,
