Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview
For the uninitiated, the inaugural ball of the fall season begins today. Every year, Nordstrom discounts just arrived merchandise for two weeks. When the sale ends, the items go back to full prices.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is divinely timed just after my birthday. I have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. After a sneak peak during the High Power in High Heels event, I can share a few of my favorite things. If only I could afford them all...
MAXX New York bag ($129.90 sale, reg. $208): This beauty is hot to trot for the latest trends. Patent leather. Croc embossing. Outer zipper. Cross strap. Available in colors including a tasty eggplant that would make any outfit pop.
Shootie/Bootie, Enzo Angiolini ($79.90, reg. $119.95): Whatever you want to call it, the crossbred bootie is back in a big way. Look for lace-up styles and buckle embellishments inspired by men's wear. Enjoy this look while knee-high boot still feel out of place in Florida's 80-degree fall.
Semanticks jacket ($118.90 sale, $178 regular) and skirt ($64.90 sale, regular $98): Every working gal needs an all-occasion suit in her wardrobe. This is just one example of the jacket-skirt-pant ensembles offered at surprising prices during the sale. You'll wear pieces like these for years.
Not Your Daughter's Jeans ($78.90 sale, reg. $118): I'll check out anything with Oprah's seal of approval. This slim-leg jean is supposed to accomplish what a tummy tuck would, minus the recovery time from surgery. You can pick up other exclusive denim brands like True Religion and 7 for All Mankind during the sale.
