Nordstrom’s got some really good stuff marked down right now

13

One small upside to this horribleness that we currently find ourselves in is the fact that everybody is having sales, and all sorts of good pieces that wouldn’t normally be marked down are, like Rag & Bone’s truly awesome Slade blazer, which is also available in army green and black cherry.

These Eileen Fisher crop stretch knit pants remind me of Maria Cornejo’s Gaby trousers, and are the ideal non-sweatpant lounging pants.

I tried this Nili Lotan jacket on when I was in Los Angeles and loved it, but thought the price was beyond outrageous. Now it’s a whole lot cheaper—though still by no means cheap.

I’m dying to go for these leather Easthampton pants, also from Nili Lotan.

I love the pattern on the straps of this glazed calfskin tote from Isabel Marant. It’s also marked down in this really good khaki.

I love a dark floral print, and the one on this dress is just so good.

And here is what I think is a very perfect dress for the warmer weather we’ll be having soon.

This vegan leather puffer is another item I’ve been jonesing for for months now.

Such a sharp pinstripe blazer. I like the way it looks styled with a graphic tee, just as shown here.

This suede bag from Rag & Bone is the perfect small-but-not-too-small size.

I have kind of included this sequined hoodie as a goof—it’s the ultimate in glammed-up loungewear—but I also kind of love it.

The zipper neckline adds a touch of edge to this pretty sheath dress from Rachel Comey.

This shearling lined boot looks so cozy, and would be so great for next winter.

I dig the slightly psychedelic print on this nicely flowy dress.

A bunch of you went for this fringe tweed jacket when I featured it a while back, so I thought I’d include it here for those of you who loved it but balked at the price. It looks very Chanel-but-cooler to me.

I own and love Rachel Comey’s Paloma jumpsuit—it’s so excellently slouchy, and is easier to get in and out of than your average jumpsuit.

I think Coach, as a brand, has really lost its way lately, but this bag hearkens back to when they were really on their game.

Such a great retroish print on this button down.

    I have a similar pair of Eileen Fisher pants that I’ve owned for maybe ten years and they still look good. I had to laugh because when I looked at the heart print See by Chloe dress I didn’t realize there were also FACES in the print. So, yes, very psychedelic. And I do love the dress. However, I spent this month’s clothing “allowance” on donations to the Central Austin Food Bank which is getting hit hard and Austin Pets Alive because they experienced flooding from our recent rains. I feel so very, very fortunate to have the means to make donations at this time I feel I should even if it means postponing other purchases. Still, as so many have already said, I LOVE looking!

    Having family members in performance-related professions, I always enjoy the sense of a scene or mood being evoked with the combination of items in the shopping posts. (My personal favorite to date was the scary, cool girls corduroy post.) So, thanks for this thoughts of spring post! If my weight wasn’t transitioning down, I would be so tempted by the Eileen Fisher pants. Side note: does it seem like perceptions of the Eileen Fisher brand parallels perceptions of women as we age? I know the internet joke is, hey, I must be getting old: Eileen Fisher is starting to look good to me. Yet, when you look at actual Eileen Fisher pieces, they’re timeless, practical separates.

      Yes, D. (whose real name I am dying to know) I think Eileen Fisher gets a bad rap.

          The author of this site has a name that sets the bar too high. Kim is the first step to starting a band. France rhymes with pants. I assure you, I do not rock at the start and rhyme in the end. This is what I’m like in real life, only older: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL7WTIb6rqw

              I wish I was Jessica Hynes in the late British 90s comedy, Spaced, but no. In my twenties, I definitely identified with her character, Daisy Steiner. By the way, I want to say that, if you get the free IMDB streaming channel on your Roku, you can watch Spaced in its entirety.

    The sleeve details on the blue dress make me love it and want it badly. Alas, I cannot have it, so I will just admire greatly from across the internet. So pretty!

    Was gonna pull the trigger on my first post-virus clothing purchase–my daughter was encouraging by saying how much money I am saving being stuck in the house. But the Chloe dress is only size 0 left. Sigh…

    I love Nordstrom. They have everything. I know department stores are having a really tough time and the pandemic has just made it worse. I hope they come out of this okay.
