Early Access for the 2015 Nordstrom Anniversary started, which means yours truly was up late shopping in the wee hours of this morning and out the door fairly early this morning.
I was a little disappointed with handbags this year. I didn’t see anything that I could really see myself using. The only bag that I thought was cute was the Patricia Nash Bronte fringe bucket bag — except I really can’t stand how unorganized everything gets so I passed.
Some of the Michael Kors bags were cute, but I am not really in the market for any non-cross bags right now.
The Ted Baker shopper on the right was cute, but again — not really what I need right now.
I was really excited to finally find a pair of boots! I’ve been looking since the Fall and I wasn’t able to find anything with a shaft height that looked good on my short legs. I saw these Naturalizer Jennings boots in store and loved them. The shoe tent was craaaaaazy crowded and we actually thought there was a line to get in!
Clothing was kind of a bust for me too. I ordered a few more of the Halogen U-Neck t-shirts that I love. I got some last year and they’ve held up well for me. (I wash on delicate cycle and hang dry.)
I only found 1 sweater that I thought was cute, which was a super soft Bobeau open cardi. I tried on this one and the super popular Barefoot Dreams cardi and the Bobeau one was better on my petite frame. BTW – the Bobeau comes in a few colors, but DO NOT order the “burgundy”. It is a really awful shade of orangey red. The Barefoot Dreams cardigan sold out last year, so I would highly recommend ordering sooner rather than later if you’re interested in it! The material is SUPER SOFT! I just think it was a little too long for me. I wish I was taller!!! My friend is a little taller than me and got it and it looks great on her!
In the lingerie/lounge wear tent I found some SUPER soft modal pajamas by PJ Salvage. I have seen this brand at Nordstrom before but I had never tried anything until today. I loved their silky soft material and I picked up this tank top and I’m seriously considering if I should order the pajama set as well.
Finally, I have to mention the amazingly soft throws I found in the home department. I honestly don’t know if I can pick a favorite! I already own 2 from last year… so perhaps I should just complete the set and buy one of each? 🙂
On the more luxe side, Giraffe at Home and Barefoot Dreams both make wonderfully soft throws, but they are slightly different. Giraffe at Home is more of a faux fur and the Barefoot Dreams is more of a chenille. Both are super duper soft! I bought the Giraffe at Home one last year and everyone loves to cuddle up with it.
Both of those throws are rather pricey, but these two are much more wallet friendly and just as soft. The Kennebunk is a steal at $25.90! The Nordstrom at Home throw is also super soft and very similar to the Giraffe At Home throw, and is priced at only $31.90.
