My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases by Kathrine Eldridge, Wardrobe Stylist

I have had a couple of posts promoting my picks from the sale. My first post was my favorite picks from all that was online. My second post was the best wardrobe staples from the sale. This post is my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases. I can’t afford to buy all that I love so I focused on what I needed for the fall season.

Madewell Sweater in Heather Boysenberry

This sweater is so soft and I adore the pretty pink shade which works in any season. The faux wrap detail is extremely flattering. I am wearing my black cami bra but you definitely could do a tank underneath if you don’t have a cami bra. It also comes in a navy and olive. Perfect cozy sweater for the fall and winter!

Kut from the Kloth Donna High Waist Skinny Jeans

Some of my purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

My love for Kut for the Kloth never ends. Every year during the Anniversary Sale, I get a pair from Kut. I had to get these jeans because the fit was so good. The dark color is classy and polished and the high waist smoothes out all my lumps and bumps. The best part is that I don’t have to get these altered. Its considered an ankle jean but looks like a regular skinny jean because of how short I am.

Stuart Weitzman Darla Over the Knee Boots

I love wearing over the knee boots because they makes my legs look longer. When I was in Paris a couple of years ago, I bought my first pair of suede over the knee boots. They are looking pretty scruffy so I decided to get a new pair. Stuart Weitzman is known for their over the knee boots so I just went for it during the sale. The price is steep (still a lot lower than regular price!) but it’s worth the quality that you are getting. This is the time to go for those splurge pieces.

Gibson Open Front Fleece Cardigan

They call this a fleece cardigan but it doesn’t feel like fleece. Regardless, I love the snakeskin print and the sleek lines of the sweater. I am wearing an XS and it still feels a little big. What do you think? Should I return it? I really want to keep it because I love the way it looks with skinny jeans and booties. It’s important to find cool layering pieces for fall like this one.

Yes, more snakeskin! I wanted a pair of black stiletto booties and these were the perfect match. I was completely surprised on how comfy they are. Pointy toe shoes can hurt your toes but these do not and they slip right on (no zipper). The heel is not too high so I can see wearing this quite a bit. They look the best with pants and jeans. I tried it with my leopard dress from the sale and I wasn’t sold on how they looked with it. That being said, I still think this is a must if you don’t have dressier black booties.

Nordstrom Extras

Besides all these goodies, I got a lip tint set from Bobbi Brown (sold out – couldn’t find it on the site), this set of socks, and these Spanx briefs. If you want to wear Spanx with certain looks but want a little bit of smoothing, these seamless undies are what you need. Sometimes you don’t want to feel like a stuffed sausage!

So what do you think of my purchases? Some of these items are sold out but it worth going to the store and seeing if they can order it for you while the sale is going on. I have heard that some people cancelled orders because of issues with Nordstrom. So sorry to hear that. Hopefully they will get their act together and take care of their customers.

Happy Wednesday! XO
