Looking forward to fall with the Nordstrom anniversary sale

13

The best items in this sale are all for the cooler weather we’ll be having soon enough, so that’s what I’m focusing on here. This spiff leather jacket has got a really good, clean cut and no unnecessary ornamentation.

These leather leggings are pretty well-priced, as leather leggings go. Or you could go for these Spanx faux leather leggings, which are way cheaper.

A cute double-breasted plush jacket that’s just the right amount of cropped.

A Nili Lotan cashmere sweater with quite a flattering not-quite-off-the-shoulder neckline.

This shrunken blazer is the kind of grey that goes with absolutely everything.

This Barbour jacket is about as classic as it gets, and excellently weather-proof.  And here’s another good one from Barbour if you’re interested.

A lovely, flowy open cardigan with stylish side slit pockets, which I always view as a plus.

This striped cashmere sweater is kind of tomboyishly chic.

Just a very pretty dark floral blouse that you could wear with everything from jeans to a pencil skirt.

I like the cool, retroish hue of this chunky cardigan, and am a fan of the snap buttons too.

Just the kind of shirred silk blouse that goes with everything and gets reached for repeatedly.

I like the light (but not too light) blue of this V-neck sweater.

Cropped cargo pants you could wear now with sandals, and later on with ankle boots.

And finally: this luxe cashmere scarf rings in just under $100 and comes in a few other good colors.

    Perfect timing, just planned an end of November trip to Switzerland and have fall dressing on my mind even though it’s 90+ here with no air conditioning. I do agree with several other commenters that while there might be some great individual items in the sale, the sale itself seems overwhelmingly meh

    I love your selections, Kim – lots of nice stuff from Vince, in particular. I went to the sale in person and I agree, I wasn’t particularly tempted by what I saw. But I didn’t see much of what Kim has posted, save for the Signature cardigan!

    I don’t think I’ll purchase anything, but the Vince pieces are appealing to me.

    Perfect picks! This year the Nordstrom sale seemed to have something for everyone (though not everything for some ones 😉 )

    Always love a motorcycle jacket. Kim (or the wonderful commenters here) Do you think the slouchy, oversized silhouette will be in for Fall 2019? Or should I not care?

      Echoing this question, I’d love to see your ‘this will stick around, this is fading, this is coming’ fashion overview, Kim.

        Yep, a post about what NOT to buy would be interesting.

    Am I the only one who found the sale to be a complete snoozefest? It was overkill on their Nordstrom brands. I went in-store and the animal prints were an assault on the senses. I did get some nice Bobbi Brown lip glosses and the Estee Lauder night serum I love so much. So not a total loss!

      You are correct! I got only beauty myself, and a pair of jeans.

      Yes. Total Snoozefest. I kind of hope the family can buy back the company and go private again. Things started going awry after IPO.

      From the Dept. of Thing I Don’t Need(but bought anyway): The Tom Ford eye palette and lipstick mini combo. In addition to the usual unmentionables stock up.

    I can’t comment on whether or not the sale is boring, bc I am so at odds with currrent fashions that it would be hard for any store to find anything I might like. (Except really simple things but no one makes those, as there is no margin I guess.)

    Having said that … I thought this was cute. I can’t imagine buying it right now bc of the weather, but, it’s cashmere and I like it. (I have loud taste – so sue me!)

    In case link doesn’t work, it is a Halogen “Stripe Fringe Cashmere Wrap Scarf,” with happy colors. I expect, it will get cold again … someday! (Sigh)
