So I have yet another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale try on session but this time with items that I liked and couldn’t wait to try!
So half to most of the items I did end up returning because I wasn’t “in love” with it. I often do that to show you what the pieces look like and what I don’t personally like, I take it back.
So now to my honest reviews of the items I purchased online.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Try-On Session My Favorites
All of the jeans that I tried on were under $50. I can’t ever justify paying more then $50 for a pair of jeans. I just don’t know why, but I just can’t. Other items (i.e. shoes) I can, but not jeans. With that being said, here are my three picks.
Size: 25 Price: $42.90 from $65
Ok, hard NO!! First, I could barely button them and then they just fit horribly! I like a distressed jean, but these wear just wrong for me. I’d prefer buying a pair for half the price at old navy (sorry, honest opinion). Maybe they would have looked better if I sized up, but I don’t even want to bother. RETURNED!
Size: 24 Price: $42.90 from $65
Ok, so these were ok but nothing to “blog” about (haha! my little jokes). I saw these on another blogger which recommend sizing down one from their normal sizing. My normal size is a 25, so that’s why I got the 24. They fit, but I’d have to not eat for two weeks for them to fit “perfect”. I did try these same pair at the store in a 25 and they fit ok. Again, I like to stick to my Old Navy or Loft jeans. RETURNED!
Pair 3: Caslon Sierra Skinny Jeans
Size: 25 Price: $49.90 from $74
Ok, out of the 3, this pair was my favorite. They were flattering and the length was great. (I’m 5’4.5″ and have long legs so jeans are hit or miss with the length). I like the classic look and the dark wash. They are very high waisted and went over my belly button (I also have a very short torso). I would have kept these if I didn’t have an identical pair from Loft. For the price point, I would say these are a win. RETURNED!
I chose two pieces because I know the brand. Zella leggings are great and the high waisted cropped leggings are my favorite. I perchased a pair last year at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I wanted to see if I like the new colors. I ended up returning both pair because my last years leggings were a mixture of these to put together and they were still in great condition. But I would highly recommend getting a pair! My favorite are the cropped because it works for any height.
Size: XS Price: $35.90 from $55
Pair 2: Zella So Stunning Crop Leggings
Size: XS Price: $35.90 from $55
This was my one piece of clothing purchase that I don’t regret! This is the BLANKNYC Moto Jacket with a removable hood. I purchased a BLANKNYC Moto jacket last year and I was so impressed with the quality and the price (it’s $64.90 from $98), that I was excited to see that it came in this toupe (Mushroom) color. I don’t really care for the hood part too much and will probably never have it on, but I do love the fit of this jack and the color! I’m wearing a XS and it fits perfectly! WIN!
I like to wear a nice cozy scarf in the fall and it also adds as a fun statement piece. I chose these two because I love pink and leopard. Haha! Also, every year Nordstrom brings out a very inexpensive leopard scarf and I really like this year’s version. They are both light weight and soft. The leopard scarf is a deal for $12.90 from $19 and the pink scarf is $23.90 from $36.95. I sadly had to return the pink one because it looked like someone place an ink pen on it and marked it up.
Ok, so as you all know, I LOVE shoes!! I’m a shoe lover and I just love cute (but comfortable) shoes! (Wow, I used the word shoes so much in one sentence, haha!) This is where the majority of my budget goes to because I know these are quality items that will last.
1st Pair: Lucky Brand Yabba Wedge Bootie
As predicted, these are the best booties in the sale! They are a great price and come in 5 fun colors! I love a wedge heel because it gives you height with support. They are so easy to put on and comfortable. They have a fun slit on the side which makes it a great transition bootie between summer and fall. (Disclaimer: don’t wear socks with this booties! It will be a fashion “No-No”!). I got a size 9.5 (which is my true size) and they fit perfectly! They are $86.90 from $129.95. WIN!
2nd Pair: Halogen Violet Genuine Calf Hair Mule
LOVE THESE SHOES! I saw these online and was immediately sole! I wasn’t sure how they would fit since loaf slides sometimes make my feet look a bit longer (then normal). When I put these on, they fit perfectly! The size is true to size and the have a cushion on the heel, so comfy! Also, I love leopard and these will be amazing come this fall. They are $64.90 from $99.95. WIN!
3rd Pair: Caslon Braided Bootie
Can we take a moment here and admire the cuteness of these booties! The light pink suede are so cute and love the braided detail! Another bootie that is great for transitioning from summer to fall! They fit a bit snug in the toe but overall true to size. (I’d recommend sizing a half size up if you have a wide foot). They come in 4 colors and are $79.90 from $119.95. WIN!
4th Pair: adidas Edge Lux Clima Running Shoe
Ok, I really liked them in the store and online. But once they got to my house, I wasn’t for sure about them. They are more of a neon orange (which clearly states in the description) but was hoping they were wrong (which is often the case with most products). I also ordered these in a 9.5 but they were a half size to a whole size too large. They were comfortable on and great for those with a wide foot. They are $63.90 from $85 and also come in a gray. I decided to just part with these. RETURNED!
5th Pair: Sam Edelman Caprice Knee-High Boot
These boots are like butter! Haha! I know that is weird to say but they are so soft (leather wise) and smooth to put on! They are a slouchy fit and not fitted to your calf so they fall a bit. I got these in a 9.5 and fit perfectly. I think I will only wear a thin boot socks with these. They are the perfect fall boot! They come in a red and black color and are $149.90 from $224.95. WIN!
6th Pair: Vince Camuto Kochelda Over the Knee (OTK) Boot
So these boots came out last year and they were a hot item! So I missed out on a pair. This year, I made sure to quickly purchase a pair. They are easy to put on and not too tight in the calf (regular size calf). I love the low heel and can be worn for anything. Only thing is, I’m not sure if I’m “in love” with them. I guess the glitter and magic is gone from last year (hence, they are still available in all sizes and in all 3 colors). I got a 9.5 and they fit great! They are $159.90 from $239.95. STILL DEBATING…let me know what you guys think!
