Checking out the Nordstrom sale


There is so much to want marked down right now here; items I’ve posted are in descending order from most to least expensive, starting with this graceful handkerchief-hem silk dress from Maria Cornejo.


This Saloni dress manages to be feminine without coming off too girly, and the silhouette is nice and flattering to a variety of shapes.

This Nili Lotan blouse has a slouchy, tuxedo shirt-ish vibe.

I’m not usually a big fan of the ombre effect, but I think it really works on this cozy-looking sweater.

This half-zip hoodie from Vince is about as polished as a hoodie gets.

You don’t often see Iro’s popular Shavani jacket on sale, and it’s such a good stand-in for a blazer for those who are convinced they don’t look good in blazers. It comes in a very lovely creamy white as well.

This twist-hem top has a lot going for it: a nice deep neckline, a spiff band collar, and a bright and fiery red hue.

I like how the faded-out black looks with the red stripes on this super-snappy button-down.

I’ve been eyeing this cute embroidered top for months now, and may finally pull the trigger.

This Vince utility jacket is nice and roomy and ideal for layering.

A Breton-stripe cashmere sweater from Kule that has a certain tomboyish appeal.

I’m pretty certain I showed you this Equipment blouse when I did a post on tie-neck tops; I’d wear it just as it is shown here, with broken-in jeans, but you could certainly dress it up too.

Likewise, I know I showed you this striped cardigan from Veronica Beard as well: it’s the type of piece that can make a boring outfit interesting.

    Ugh. Unfortunately, I love a lot of your picks! Like the Equipment tie blouse, the Isabel Marant top,the black blazer, the striped button-down….

    It is a bummer I can’t wear orange.

    I feel like this has been an OUTSTANDING week of posts on an already-excellent site. Not only do I want the items, I felt there was this warm referencing of collective memories. Besides the preppy post, the strappy sandal/clog shoes reminded me of clomping around our apartment in my mother’s exercise sandals. If I could give Kim France a slice of pie in recognition, I would.

      Dr. Scholl’s! I lived on those as a teenager.
