Shopping the discount stores: Nordstrom Rack

14

I haven’t explored the options at these retailers in a while, and this week seems like a good time to do it. I was delighted to see this L’Agence denim jacket, which I’ve often coveted. But I’ve never gone for it, as its regular price is close to $350, which, I respectfully submit,  is nuts for a denim jacket. Now it’s a whopping 65% off, and I’m plenty tempted.

I’ve seen a lot of the lavender on this split neck blouse around lately, and I’m kind of into it, even though pastels are very much not my usual thing.

A pretty floral dress with a hem that hits flatteringly just below the knee.

These boyfriend jeans from Frame come in a darker wash too (click through to see), but they’re available in more sizes in this wash.

Such a lovely, summery embroidered top.

A silky asymmetrical dress perfect for the steamy weather that’s suddenly here.

I almost always love a black floral, and the one of this silk top from Vince is just divine.

A linen popover that also comes in black, but looks so damn crisp in the white.

The print on this floral blouse reminds me of antique wallpaper, which doesn’t sound like a compliment, though I mean it as one.

A cool, simple striped tee dress for wearing all summer.

This shirred stretch silk blouse is just really elegant, and I like it the way it’s shown here, with the bow untied.

Tons of (usually not cheap) James Perse tops are available here, and there are an especially impressive number of their great tees on offer, like this deep U-neck, which is my all-time favorite, and is available in a ton of good colors.

    The James Perse t-shirt is indisputably the Queen of T-shirts.

    The shirred silk blouse is fabulous!
    I am a Nordstrom Rack shopper. There’s a lot of junk but I have found that if I search brands that I know work for me I can find some great pieces. Also, the reviews are helpful. Sometimes there’s a reason an item is deeply discounted. 🙂

    Loved your interview with Teri Agins a few weeks back. I especially loved when she talked about how you might still be the same size after 40 but your body will definitely have shifted and how you need to find clothes that address that. Anyway, I ended up taking notes and one of brands of shapewear she recommended is available now at a deep discount at Nordstrom Rack. Wore it for the first time today when it was muggy and almost 90 and it was super comfortable! Link here:

    Funny, I do look there but somehow it hadn’t occurred lately to look there for jeans. I thought these were cute, though I doubt I’ll actually remember to buy them: https://www.nordstromrack.com/s/good-legs-flare-jeans/6970676?origin=category-personalizedsort&breadcrumb=Home%2FWomen%2FClothing%2FJeans%20%26%20Denim%2FFlare%20%26%20Wide%20Leg&fashioncolor=Blue&color=401

    Also, if anyone out there needs a summer suit and doesn’t mind shoulder pads, you should check out Mango’s linen options. Mine are going back bc I can’t deal with shoulder pads, but I thought they were pretty nice otherwise – and quite affordable as suits go. The jackets are lined too, if that matters. (Friend thought that was strange. I have no opinion.) The light blue is quite nice IRL.

    Nordstrom Rack is also an excellent source for high-end sunglasses. I got the Jackie O Ray-Bans there for $79 and they’re usually twice that. They are fabulous (and so am I, when I wear them).

    Size info: I have a pair of the Le Garcon Frame jeans and even though I purchased a size smaller than I usually wear they do stretch quite a bit after wearing for a couple of hours so you might want to order a couple of different sizes just in case. And even though they do stretch––I’d buy them again because they look great on. Glad you’re back in action, Kim!

      Kim, nice to have you back. Great post!
      Thank you for the tip about jean size. They’re in my cart already. Also, I own the L’Agence jacket and it’s perfect. Nicely fitted and soft. Wish I had waited for the sale price!

    For me, Nordstrom Rack is all about the shoes. Great finds in clothing are slim pickings.

    Love the jacket. I just saw someone wearing it last week and fell in love. Sadly, my XS das are behind me. I’ll be on the look out for it again.

    I love the Rack and always search for Vince blouses and find a trove. I own the linen one here (but in black) and it’s summer perfection.
