Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale Haul!

Every May and November Nordstrom has a Half Yearly Sale where they mark down certain items for women and children. I always look forward to Nordstrom’s sales because I can usually purchase things that I’ve been watching for a discounted price (usually 33-40% off ). I didn’t go too crazy this year because I knew that their Anniversary Sale was going to be right around the corner (July 15th-19th, but I’ll get into that later on in the post). I did cop a handful of items because, as you know, I love Nordies, and how could I pass on such great deals on designer accessories?! Anywhoo…Here’s what I picked up:

Michael Kors Resin Chronograph Watch, $134.90

Coach Sandal, $57.90

Carrera Eyewear "NASKA" Sunglasses, $59.90

Coach Sandal, $57.90

I’d been watching the Michael Kors timepiece for quite some time and I was so excited once I saw that is was marked down from $225 (40% off). I’ve also been eyeballing Carrera sunglasses for over a year now and I decided to purchase these in particular because they are quite cute and retro, and they were marked down from $120. As for the Coach sandals, those were just a spare of the moment splurge! I needed some flat sandals that I could dress up or down so I copped these.

Every July Nordstrom also has an Anniversary Sale where cardholders can get first dibs on designer merchandise that hasn’t (technically) been released yet. A Nordstrom associate usually calls me to see if I’d like to pre-order anything for that particular sale. However, anyone can take advantage of the sale from July 15th to July 19th.

The exclusivity and customer service at Nordstrom is amazing! If you aren’t a frequent flyer at Nordies then you are not in the know!! Happy Shopping! XOXO

15 Bare Accessory Essentials!!

The following are items that every woman must have in her accessory closet. I actually tried come up with a list of ten must have accessories, but I felt like I was leaving out some vital pieces. You don’t have to buy all these items at once…these are pieces that you can add to your wardrobe over time. However, if you stumble upon some bargains on items you don’t own, then seize the moment…carpe diem!! Of course you can own more than one of each, but if you’re starting from scratch, here is a list of the my Bare Accessory Essentials:

  1. Everyday Handbag
  2. A Pair of Chic Sunglasses
  3. A Pair of Fabulous Earrings
  4. An Eye Catching Scarf
  5. Nail Polish (If you aren’t into painting your nails, that’s okay!)
  6. A Pair of Flat Shoes
  7. A Clutch
  8. A Pair of Stud Earrings
  9. A Timepiece
  10. A Statement Necklace
  11. A Pair of High Heel Shoes (Sandals/Pumps/Peep Toe)
  12. A Cocktail Ring
  13. A Belt
  14. A Pair of Winter Boots
  15. A Bracelet/Bangle

Bonus Essential: Make-Up – Your face doesn’t have to be totally made up on a daily basis, but at least groom your eyebrows and throw on some chapstick or lip gloss! Also make sure that your skin is clear and moisturize…it makes a huge difference!

Final Note: Be sure not to fill your closet with a bunch of expensive, trendy junk…you want the majority of the things in your accessory closet to be items that you can mix-n-match and recreate as time goes on. Obviously, not everything in your closet will last a life time, but you will want these items to at least last you a couple of seasons.

Happy Shopping!! Muah!! XOXO
