Two weeks ago, I shared my picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Now that my items have arrived and I’ve tried on everything, I figured I’d share what I’m actually keeping:
I love these pants. They are a great color and have just the right amount of stretch. They are a little long (why do they assume everyone wearing jeans has supermodel proportions? I have fairly long legs and will still need to get these hemmed), but I get reimbursed for tailoring with my Nordstrom credit card, so I’m keeping them anyway.
This is such a soft, well-made sweater. The grey one is opaque enough that you don’t have to wear another shirt under it, although it looks like the lighter colors may require some layering. I wish cashmere wasn’t hard to care for (and so expensive). Otherwise, I’d be all George Costanza-like and drape myself in it. Cashmere pajamas anyone?
This necklace is delicate and pretty. It’s one of those pieces that goes with pretty much everything.
I was hoping I wouldn’t like these. They cost more money than I wanted to spend on a pair of jeans. BUT, even though I am still carrying baby weight, they look the way they are supposed to look on me. I therefore am keeping them. Plus, wearing Rag & Bone just makes you feel cooler.
This is one of my original picks and is also one of my favorite items. The quality was surprising. The material felt like the shirt should cost a lot more than $25! It fit nicely too. I just wish I had ordered the white before it sold out!
I swore off heels a few months ago. I will, however, make an exception for these. I think they will be super comfortable and I’ll actually be able to walk the city streets in them. Yes, they’re expensive, but I plan on wearing them everyday come fall.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to ever post photos of myself here, partly because I want to preserve my anonymity but also, to be honest, because I’m still carrying the baby weight and am a little tough on myself. But I figure I’ll post some here and see how I feel about it. First, a picture of me wearing #2, #3, #4, and #5. I’d love to hear from you about what your favorite finds in the Sale.
