Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Hits & Misses (Part 2)

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to the public! I decided to do another dressing room post to share all of my hits and misses from the sale. I’ve included sizing information on all of the items and also shared what didn’t work for me. For reference, I’m 5’8″.

I hope you have a great weekend!

HIT: Jacket [ $188.00 —-> $124.90 ]

This suede moto jacket is such an amazing sale find! The color is seriously amazing and it fits like a glove. It’s definitely one of my favorite items in the sale this year.

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size small.

HIT: Top [ $24.00 —-> $15.90 ]

This tee is so incredibly comfy and extremely flattering. I love stocking up on basics like this during the sale (it comes in 6 colors) because it’s something I can wear all year long.

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size small.

HIT: Jeans [ $59.00 —-> $38.90 ]

If you’re looking for a great fitting pair of dark denim skinny jeans for a reasonable price, I’d highly recommend these ones. I couldn’t believe how flattering they were when I tried them on and I love the darker wash for Fall.

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size 26.

 

HIT: Dress [ $48.00 —-> $31.90 ]

This is my favorite dress from the sale this year. I just love the bell-sleeves, the neckline, and the cut-out back. It’s so flattering and such a great price! I bought both of these colors and a printed one.

*Size Tip: Runs large, wearing size XS.

 

HIT: Top [ $48.00 —-> $31.90 ]

I love this top! It looks cute tied, tucked in, or untucked. I love that it’s oversized and longer because it can be worn with leggings and boots in the Fall.

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size small. Sidenote: This top is meant to be oversized. If you’re wanting a more fitted look, I would suggest sizing down.

HIT: Jeans [ $68.00 —-> $44.90 ]

These jeans are definitely my favorite pair of distressed denim from the sale. I love the fit (they’re super slimming) and the hem on the ankle. Plus you can’t beat the price…they’re under $50!

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size 26.

 

HIT: Sweater [ $58.00 —-> $37.90 ]

I love this sweater for lounging around with sweats because it’s so comfy, or to wear with jeans and tennis shoes.

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size small.

HIT: Jeans [ $59.00 —-> $38.90 ]

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size 26.

 

HIT: Top [ $108.00 —-> $71.90 ]

I love the print and style of this top! The open back is so cute! I think it looks great styled with jeans or black leggings. It also comes in two other colors.

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size small.

HIT: Jeans [ $70.00 —-> $46.90 ]

Topshop almost always runs small and these jeans are no exception. I’m typically a size 26 or 27, but the size 28 in these fit like a glove. I love the 30″ length because they’re cropped at the ankles, so I can wear them with ankle booties in the Fall without having to roll them up.

*Size Tip: Runs small, wearing size 28×30.

 

HIT: Sweater

I love anything and everything lace-up, and this sweater is no exception. I know I’ll be getting lots of wear out of it in the Fall and Winter.

*Size Tip: Runs true to size, wearing size small.

HIT: Jeans [ $68.00 —-> $44.90 ]

These jeans are definitely my favorite pair of distressed denim from the sale. I love the fit (they’re super slimming) and the hem on the ankle. Plus you can’t beat the price…they’re under $50!

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size 26.

 

HIT: Dress [ $42.00 —-> $27.90 ]

This dress is one of my top three favorites from the sale. I love the v-neckline and both colors it comes in. I think it looks cute now styled with wedges and will look cute in the Fall under a jacket or cardigan with ankle booties.

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size small.

 

HIT: Top [ $78.00 —-> $51.90 ]

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size XS. (From the women’s department.)

MISS: Jeans [ $79.50 —-> $52.90 ]

I really wanted to love these jeans because I love the style and wash, but they just didn’t flatter my figure. I would definitely still encourage you to try them if you like them because they’re super cute and I feel like jeans fit everyone so differently.

*Size Tip: Runs large, wearing size 26 and they were too big.

 

HIT: Top$24.00 —-> $15.90 ]

This tee is so incredibly comfy and extremely flattering. I love stocking up on basics like this during the sale (it comes in 6 colors) because it’s something I can wear all year long.

*Size Tip: Fits true to size, wearing size small.

HIT: Cardigan [ $48.00 —-> $31.90 ]

Sooooo…I love this cardigan so much that I may or may not have ordered it in 3 colors. Whoops! It comes in 7 colors and I ended up getting this one (grey medium heather), burgundy stem, and tan fog. It’s seriously the perfect cardigan for Fall!

*Size Tip: Size down, wearing size XS.

HIT: Jeans [ $59.00 —-> $38.90 ]

*Size Tip: Runs true to size, wearing size 26.

 

HIT: Dress [ $58.00 —-> $37.90 ]

This dress is one of my favorite purchases from the sale because it can actually be worn two ways, which means I’ll be getting twice as much wear out of it. You can see how I styled it as a vest in this post.

*Size Tip: Runs large, wearing size XS.

 

HIT: Cardigan [ $68.00 —-> $41.90 ]

This is another great cardigan from the sale! I like this one better because it’s more lightweight, and I don’t really need any heavy cardigans living in Arizona. I like that this one has a hood.

*Size Tip: Size down, wearing size XS.

HIT: Jeans [ $88.00 —-> $58.90 ]

HIT: Top [ $44.00 —-> $28.90 ]

I bought this plaid top in a few colors because I know I’ll be wearing them non-stop once it cools down. I love how it looks by itself or with my favorite tee underneath.

*Size Tip: Runs large, wearing XS in the left and small in the right. I would suggest sizing down if you want it to look more fitted and going with your normal size if you like the oversized look.

I love this top for layering under cardigans or this faux-leather jacket in the Fall.

MISS: Dress [ $38.00 —-> $24.90 ]

HIT: Sweater [ $52.00 —-> $33.90 ]
