Anyone who knows me can tell you my somewhat unhealthy obsession with Nordstrom. It is my favorite place to shop, hands down. That being said, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most exciting times of the year. If you are a Nordstrom card holder, which my family is, you get to shop the deals even EARLIER in the early access days before the actual sale starts days after. This is a HUGE advantage because a majority of the merchandise is completely gone during those early access days and it is not restocked for the public. Some of these items I bought for my upcoming sorority recruitment! Here are a few purchases I made this year during those precious early access days:
I have found this first top to be a very flattering style for my body type. I love the ruffles and the simple blush color. And for only $45 who could pass that up?
This item is a little more out of my comfort zone. I typically stray from velvet of any kind especially something as vibrant as this blue. I thought this would be a fun accessory leading into the fall months heading back to school in the city.
These booties were one of my sorority recruitment necessities. My black booties were getting a little worn out so I was in need of a new pair anyways. Also, just a good staple to have in any wardrobe. This dress is another sorority item. Eliza J is BY FAR my absolute favorite dress brand. Eliza has never steered me wrong when it comes to any occasion where a dress is required. I have gotten all of my Easter dresses for the past three years as well as high school graduation from the Eliza J brand. These dresses (typically in the fit and flare style) are always super flattering on my body type.
I have been looking for a good quality, oversized, distressed denim jacket for a while now and this one immediately caught my eye. I love the fit and wash of the denim and can’t wait to rock this look with some black skinny jeans and booties in the cooler months.
Now this last pair of shoes actually wasn’t on the anniversary sale but I figured should be included in my haul anyway. I have been on the hunt for a pair of white sneakers but didn’t want to go for the basic Adidas superstars or white converse. I thought this perforated look was definitely different and added something extra to the already simple shoe.
