A ton of choice picks from the Nordstrom anniversary sale


I’m a tiny bit late in posting about this, but the good news is there’s still plenty of cool stuff on offer. Like this functional and attractive Clare V tote. I also like this sporty backpack, also from Clare V.

As is usually the case, most of the clothes I like in this sale are for fall weather, so you might want to get into a crisp, autumnal mindset for the rest of this post. This shirt jacket has a cute, slightly shrunken fit, and it looks as great from the back as the front.

I would love to own a Longchamp leather tote like this one: so streamlined and ideal for travel.

This embossed leather pointy toe bootie is so chic that I’m including it even though I haven’t worn heels like this in quite some time.

A cozy cardigan coat from Vince; it also comes in a very good camel; click through to see.

Why not go for a classic pair of Hunter rain boots while you’re at it?

A stylish and deeply versatile reversible wool and cashmere coat.

This faux fur jacket from Proenza Schouler’s diffusion line is just tremendous—kind of rock and roll, very glam—and if I didn’t already own something pretty similar, I’d totally go for it.

A wool and alpaca blazer that looks both relaxed and polished at the same time.

I love the army green webbed strap on this sling bag from Rag & Bone, and how well it plays off the leather.


A substantial wool and cashmere cardigan that is slightly oversized, and—I’m betting—cozy as all get-out.

There are quite a few Barbour jackets marked down as part of this sale, and my favorite is this longer, quilted number.

I always prefer a clog with studs instead of staples, and this one has a retroish vibe I dig.

Just a solid, big-enough-for-your-stuff crossbody bag that’s blessedly free of hardware.

I do love a leopard print in an unexpected colorway.

An easy, wearable slip skirt that comes in a couple of other good shades.

A lightweight corduroy jacket for fall’s first cool days.

These stretch cotton chinos from Vince look just like Nili Lotan’s Easthampton pant, but they’re substantially cheaper.

    The NA sale had a really cool Grand Fanny Clare V bag but it got snapped up in a second. Scored some other great pieces though!

    All solid picks! I have a Barbour jacket that I bought maybe 10 yrs ago and it still looks brand new. Also, hunter boots––they last and last and last. Love the Vince cardigan.

    I scored that Tink blouse in the turquoise print and love it. It’s a bit generous in size, for anyone ordering online.

    The Vince chinos are a bit narrow, so if you’re generous of hip and thigh like I am, try sizing up. I passed on them (I have the Nili Lotan Montauk pants in a darker grey and they fit better), but they’re really nice.
